AIMS Ebstein's anomaly (EA) is often associated with right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. Data on echocardiographic quantification of RV function are, however, rare. The aim of this study was to determine how non-volumetric echocardiographic indices and qualitative assessment of global systolic RV function correlate with cardiovascular magnetic resonance(More)
The demethylating agent azacitidine (AZA) is currently the standard of care for patients with higher-risk myelodys-plastic syndromes (MDS) not eligible for allogeneic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Although approximately 50% of patients show a response to AZA it is not currently possible to accurately predict which patients will respond. In addition ,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to investigate the influence of the pronator quadratus (PQ) muscle repair following volar plate fixation of distal radius fractures with special regards to the forearm pronation strength. During the early recovery period of 3 months, an improvement of pronation strength and functional scorings was hypothesized(More)
BACKGROUND Activated protein C (APC) resistance is the most common inherited prothrombotic disorder. The role of APC resistance in ischemic stroke is controversially discussed. OBJECTIVES The aim of this single center follow up study was to investigate the effect of APC resistance on stroke recurrence and survival in stroke patients. PATIENTS/METHODS We(More)
PURPOSE To assess lesion detection and artifact size reduction of a multiacquisition variable-resonance image combination, slice encoding for metal artifact correction (MAVRIC-SEMAC) hybrid sequence (MAVRIC-SL) compared to standard sequences at 1.5T and 3T in porcine knee specimens with metal hardware. MATERIALS AND METHODS Artificial cartilage and bone(More)
BACKGROUND Fitness to drive a car has been investigated increasingly over recent years. However, most research has focussed on perioperative driving performance, and few data are available on how orthoses influence the ability to perform an emergency stop. This study investigated the effect of 4 common ankle braces (Kallassy, CaligaLoc, Air-Stirrup, ASO) on(More)
BACKGROUND During the last years, terms like acetabular retroversion, excessive overcoverage, and abnormal head-neck-junction with the so called "pistol-grip-deformity" has been added to the classical description of hip dysplasia. These anatomical changes could lead to a femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Both kinds of FAI has been indentified as a main(More)
