In a series of 6 patients out of 47 cases with extrarenal hyperparathyroidism we investigated the clinical, laboratory and ultrastructural peculiarities of acute hyperparathyroidism. It was found that there are characteristic differences between both entities which, however, are fluid. Clinically more severe were neuromuscular psychiatric and mental signs.(More)
Progressive symptoms of caudal compression (flaccid paraparesis, sensory disorders), accompanied by severe pain and fever, developed over a few days in a 26-year-old man with Crohn's disease for 11 years. Spinal computed tomography, performed under the diagnosis of herniated disc, revealed intraspinal soft tissue, as well as gas in the spinal canal (L2-S3)(More)
In sweep-oar rowers, asymmetrical force production of the legs is a known phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to investigate the muscular activity of the legs that may cause this asymmetry even when oarsmen perform a symmetrical endurance task. Seven male young elite oarsmen performed an all-out 2000-m test on a rowing ergometer. During stroke(More)
In cadaveric organ transplantation there is a risk of transfer of infectious agents from donor to recipient. The consequences can be fatal for immunosuppressed recipients. This is illustrated by a case history in which an infection with the fungus Monosporium apiospermum was transferred from a donor to two cadaveric kidney recipients, of whom one died and(More)
Benign liver tumors are generally removed because of potential complications such as bleeding and malignant growth. Liver cell adenoma and focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) are treated surgically according to these criteria, although they frequently present extremely high operative risk. Specific criteria of indication should be established for these(More)
Bei 6 Kranken mit akutem Hyperparathyreoidismus werden klinische Befunde, Labordaten und Besonderheiten in der Ultrastruktur der Nebenschilddrüsen den Daten von 47 Kranken mit extrarenalen Hyperparathyreoidismus gegenübergestellt. Typische Unterschiede konnten aufgezeigt werden, die Übergänge sind aber fließend. Beim klinischen Verlauf waren neuromuskuläre(More)
At Hannover Medical School, 1000 shunt procedures have been performed, including anastomosis with the basilic vein (18 cases), interposition of the saphenous vein (23 cases) or of a bovine xenograft (21 cases), used straight or as a loop. Lately the authors have used xenografts instead of the autologous saphenous vein, thereby easing anesthesia and the(More)
Zur Herstellung heterologer Immunseren gegen Lymphocyten des Hundes wurden ein Pferd, ein Kalb und zwei Schafe mit Lymphocyten der Ductus-thoracicus-Lymphe bzw. mit Thymuszellen neugeborener Hunde immunisiert. Die Immunseren wiesen bei serologischer Prüfung Antikörper gegen lymphatische Zellen, Granulocyten, Erythrocyten und Serumeiweiß des Hundes auf. Das(More)
The results presented here show the measurement of the subcapsular hydrostatic pressure (SHP) to be a suitable method for the postoperative monitoring of allogeneic kidney transplants. The SHP of the kidney reflects the interstitial pressure of this organ. Disturbances in the graft of immunological or non-immunological origin induce pressure increases with,(More)
Diagnosis of peritonitis by clinical signs is difficult in critically ill patients. Instead we found renal and pulmonary insufficiency to be of diagnostic value in 56 cases. The discriminating laboratory parameters were: creatinine clearance < 70 ml/min and/or arterial pO2 < 70 mm Hg or FiO2 > 0.5, revealing peritonitis in 75%. With patients suffering from(More)
