Five patients treated with radiotherapy and surgery for oral malignant tumors had a total of 20 Brånemark implants placed in irradiated bone of the mandible. The radiotherapy dose varied between 25 and 64 Gy (mean 40.3 Gy) with a biologically effective dose varying between 33.4 and 106.9. One implant did not osseointegrate, but 19 remain stable after 3 to 6(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the efficacy of long-term treatment with the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor trandolapril in diabetic patients with left ventricular dysfunction after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND Patients with diabetes mellitus have a high mortality following AMI, probably due to a high risk of congestive(More)
BACKGROUND Copeptin, a stable fragment of the vasopressin prohormone, has been shown to be a significant biomarker for morbidity and mortality in heart failure. The aims of this study were to evaluate the influence of plasma sodium on the prognostic significance of copeptin concentrations in heart failure outpatients and to determine whether increased(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether the prognostic significance of cardiovascular (CV) biomarkers, is affected by renal dysfunction (RD) in systolic heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND It is unknown, whether the prognostic significance of CV biomarkers, such as N-terminal-pro-brain-natriuretic-peptide (NT-proBNP), high-sensitive troponin T (hsTNT), pro-atrial(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the use of beta-blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in Denmark from 1995 to 2002. DESIGN Information about patients with first AMI aged > or = 30 years and the dispensing of beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors from pharmacies within 30 d from discharge was obtained from the(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of diabetes on long-term mortality in a large cohort of patients hospitalized with heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND Diabetes is common in HF patients, but information on the prognostic effect of diabetes is sparse. METHODS The study is an analysis of survival data comprising 5,491(More)
A double-blind, randomized cross-over trial was carried out in 50 patients undergoing surgical removal of bilaterally impacted lower wisdom teeth. Surgery in each patient was performed twice and paracetamol 1000 mg was administered once preoperatively and once postoperatively. The time interval to additional analgesic intake and the pain intensity up to and(More)
AIMS The present study was performed to evaluate pre-admission history, presentation, initial treatment and long-term mortality in patients with myocardial infarction and diabetes. METHODS AND RESULTS Between 1990 and 1992, 6676 patients with acute myocardial infarction were screened for entry into the Trandolapril Cardiac Evaluation (TRACE) study. In(More)
AIMS Results of previous studies on the influence of gender on prognosis in heart failure have been conflicting and most studies have been conducted in selected populations. The aim of this study was determine whether mortality risk in women and men hospitalized with congestive heart failure is different. METHODS AND RESULTS Survival analysis of 5491(More)
AIMS To study outpatient statin use after first acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in Denmark between 1995 and 2002 and to determine the predictors of statin use. METHODS This is a nationwide population-based study using administrative registries. Patients with first AMI between 1995 and 2002 older than 30 years of age and alive 6 months after discharge (n(More)
