PURPOSE Clinical experiences in interstitial 192-iridium HDR brachytherapy for the treatment of unresectable pancreatic carcinoma are presented. Brachytherapy has been used as boost irradiation in a multimodality treatment concept together with external radiotherapy and simultaneous chemotherapy. Practicability during clinical routine, tolerability and(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare treatment and outcome of patients with Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (WM) in four private oncology practices (PP) and a university hospital (UH) in southwest Germany. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of all patients with WM of the last two decades of four PP in Mannheim, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, and Speyer and(More)
At the Surgical Clinic of the University Erlangen-Nürnberg 213 colostomies in the period between 1961 and 1971 have been closed. In 88 patients an extraperitoneal procedure and in 125 patients a resection was performed. We recommend resection, because complications (first of all leakage) have been observed less often than in the extraperitoneal method.
Report of a 19-year-old man who was admitted to the hospital after vigorous exercise with signs of the "acute abdomen" syndrome. Since intestinal reasons for the complaints were excluded, a myocardial infarction was considered. However, the excessively increased serum CK levels indicated a disorder of the voluntary muscles. A biopsy taken from the rectus(More)
Electron spin resonance studies on healthy and tumorous human lung samples have been conducted in order to determine possible differences in free radical concentration and shaped of the spectra between the different sections of the lung. It could be shown that in healthy lung tissue the signal caused by the semidehydroascorbate (SDA) radical is not(More)
From September 1989 until March 1992 nine patients with unresectable, though localized carcinoma of the pancreas were treated by a multimodality therapy consisting of palliative surgery, interstitial conformal brachytherapy in high-dose rate mode (HDRBT) with iridium-192 up to 30 Gy and external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) of about 52 Gy. Four patients(More)
Particular problems of abdominal surgery in geriatric patients were analyzed in a retrospective study of 1569 surgical procedures of the abdomen carried out in 1420 patients aged 70 years or more. Emergency procedures were necessary in 357 (22.8%) cases with a lethality of 25.5% compared to 8.8% in the elective group. Morbidity was also visibly different in(More)
