PURPOSE Lipoblastoma and lipoblastomatosis are very rare benign neoplasms, which almost exclusively occur in infants and young children. Despite their potential to local invasion and rapid growth, these tumors have an excellent prognosis, particularly if resected completely. Usually, the diagnosis is not taken into consideration preoperatively, and depends(More)
Agglutinins to four strains of anaerobic gram-positive coccoid rods (species of Eubacterium, Peptostreptococcus and Coprococcus) were found in significantly higher frequency in Crohn's disease (CD) than in ulcerative colitis (UC) and in other diseased control subjects and were virtually absent in apparently healthy subjects. When the posterior probability(More)
Altersimmanente Beeinträchtigungen des Organismus, altersassozierte Erkrankungen sowie Patienten unter Multimedikation skizzieren die Anforderungen an die Anästhesie. Die Identifizierung kranker alter Patienten sowie die Beurteilung des Schweregrades von vorhandenen Funktionsstörungen sind von entscheidender Bedeutung. Anamnese und klinisches(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, the transverse conduction capabilities of the crista terminalis (CT) were determined during pacing in sinus rhythm in patients with atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation. BACKGROUND It has been demonstrated that the CT is a barrier to transverse conduction during typical atrial flutter. Mapping studies in animal models provide(More)
OBJECTIVES The study was done to assess the prevalence of left atrial (LA) chamber and appendage thrombi in patients with atrial flutter (AFl) scheduled for electrophysiologic study (EPS), to evaluate the prevalence of thromboembolic complications after transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE)-guided restoration of sinus rhythm and to evaluate clinical risk(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the incidence of left atrial (LA) thrombi in patients in sinus rhythm (SR) and with a recent neurologic deficit and to analyze the relation between LA thrombi and LA chamber and appendage function in patients in SR. METHODS A prospective study was conducted in 869 consecutive patients. The study group consisted of 583(More)
OBJECTIVE Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) have a risk of cerebral embolism. Echocardiographic parameters elevate this risk significantly. However, there is little knowledge about the long-term fate and the rate of clinically silent cerebral embolism under continued oral anticoagulation. The aims of our study were to assess prognosis of patients with(More)
