The systemic character of the rheumatoid arthritis and the collagenoses includes an extraarticular organ manifestation. Since the symptomatology of an organ participation is often covered over with dominating joint troubles its diagnostics is difficult. In 34 patients (22 with rheumatoid arthritis, 12 with collagenoses) with the help of non-invasive methods(More)
Out of 198 patients with aortic coarctation who were operated on with the implantation of an orthotopic bypass vascular prosthesis, 7 developed severe late complications 9-20 years postoperatively with late anastomosis dehiscence which resulted either in acute rupture and sudden death from massive hemorrhage (2 patients) or in false aneurysms with or(More)
Variations in the area and dimensions of the liver and spleen in the craniocaudal direction show a similar behaviour despite individual differences in the size and shape of the organs. The liver has its largest areal extent in the upper half of the organ. In the case of the spleen, it is not possible for the largest areal extent to be assigned to a(More)
In the present study 162 patients with clinically suspected diseases of the major salivary glands were examined via sonography (n = 162), sialography (n = 111) and CT-sialography (n = 49). The reliability of the three radiological procedures was assessed in diagnosing sialoadenitis, sialolithiasis and glandular and extraglandular tumors. Forty-seven(More)
Our purpose was to evaluate the diagnostic value of three-dimensional (3 D) CT surface reconstruction in spinal fractures in comparison with axial and reformatted images. A total of 50 patients with different CT-proven spinal fractures were analysed retrospectively. Based on axial scans and reformatted images, the spinal fractures were classified according(More)
Bony variations in the anterior ethmoids may, if severe, play an important role in the development of chronic sinusitis and present the surgeon with added risks during operation. We have, therefore, analysed 390 preoperative CT examinations of the sinuses performed in the coronary plane with respect to the frequency of bone variations. Concha bullosa,(More)
In recent years the construction and increase of sensitiveness of clinical and biochemical test methods resulted in an essential improvement of the functional diagnostics of adrenal diseases. For the objectivation of the findings and for the preoperative localisation radio-morphological, nuclear-medical and sonographic investigation methods are used. The(More)
