BACKGROUND The aim of this randomized, double-blind and prospective clinical trial was to investigate whether an increase of the conventional daily dosage (3,000 IU aXa) of the low molecular weight heparin certoparin up to 5,000 IU aXa/day might lower the incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients undergoing elective hip surgery. METHODS The main(More)
The low dose heparin regimen (LDH) is not appropriate for prevention of intra- and postoperative thromboembolic complications in high risk patients, especially those undergoing elective hip replacement. Despite LDH prophylaxis, the incidence of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) remains in a range of 20 to 35%. Adjusted-dose unfractionated heparin prophylaxis is(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the effect of hearing loss (HL) on emotion-perception ability among young children with and without HL. METHOD A total of 26 children 4.0-6.6 years of age with prelingual sensory-neural HL ranging from moderate to profound and 14 children with normal hearing (NH) participated. They were asked to identify happiness,(More)
A selective and sensitive method for the determination of piritramide in human plasma is described. A 1-ml aliquot of plasma was extracted with 10 ml of hexane-isoamyl alcohol (99.5:0.5, v/v) (extraction efficiency 86%) after addition of 50 microliters of 2 M ammonia and 20 microliters of aqueous strychnine solution (100 ng per 10 microliters) as internal(More)
Acute acetonitrile toxicity is mainly dependent on the release of cyanide via hepatic metabolism. Although evaluated in animals, few data are available concerning the toxicokinetic parameters of acetonitrile and acetonitrile-liberated cyanide in human. This paper reports a case of suicidal oral acetonitrile ingestion of about 5 mL without severe symptoms of(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the anticoagulant action of inhaled low-molecular-weight (LMW) heparin on the release of tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) and on antifactor Xa activity, Heptest, activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and thrombin clotting time (TCT) in healthy volunteers. 3000 IU (group 1), 9000 IU (group 2), 27,000(More)
Coomassie Brilliant Blue G250 was used for the determination of total urinary protein and compared with the biuret-procedure. In the Coomassie Brilliant Blue G250-assay 0.10 ml urine are added to 5.0 ml Coomassie Brilliant Blue G250 reagent and the sample is read against the reagent blank. The Coomassie Brilliant Blue G250 method seems to be superior to the(More)
Rhabdomyolysis without renal failure was noted after suicidal ingestion of 29 tablets of Spalt N containing 7.25 g of acetaminophen, 7.25 g of phenazone and 1.45 g of caffeine by a 29 year-old weighing 73 kg. The maximum serum creatine kinase was 1920 U/L, serum myoglobins were 49 to 167 ng/mL. Acetaminophen, phenazone and caffeine were quantified and(More)
