The aim of our study was to compare long distance runners to body mass index (BMI)- and age-matched healthy controls with respect to bone parameters at all relevant loaded and nonloaded skeletal sites. Furthermore, we assessed the effect of running volume on bone parameters. Twenty elite male runners (21.1 km<1:15 h; volume >75 km/week/year) participated in(More)
An unexpected drop in hemoglobin value requiring immediate transfusion and an acute renal failure were noticed after a routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy because of symptomatic cholecystolithiasis in an 81-year-old woman on the second postoperative day. The management of these complications including the important differential diagnosis of anemia in(More)
The problem of necrotizing enterocolitis is discussed based on the experience with 24 patients. It has been found that the time factor plays an important role in the decision whether to operate. The indications for operation are intestinal perforation, threatening perforation, and penetration of a covered perforation. Operation is carried out in order to(More)
Combination thrombolytic therapy aims to achieve higher efficacy, higher specificity, better maintained patency of initially successfully reperfused vessels, less bleeding complications and cost containment by exploiting synergistic mechanisms of action and by using much lower doses of two drugs as in monotherapy. However, so far, no combination has been(More)
Amiodarone-induced pulmonary toxicity (APT) is a severe side effect that can lead to lung fibrosis or fatal respiratory failure. Usually APT occurs during long term therapy after administration of prolonged loading doses or high cumulative doses. We present the case of a 58 year old woman who underwent thoracic surgery with lobe resection. She developed(More)
The effects of simultaneous intravenous infusions of 12 mg recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) over 30 minutes and 48 mg single-chain urokinase-type plasminogen activator (scuPA) over 40 minutes were studied in 38 patients with acute myocardial infarction. Coronary arterial patency was assessed angiographically 60 minutes and 90 minutes(More)
