OBJECTIVES Basaloid-squamous-carcinomas (BSCC) have been considered as aggressive variants of common squamous-cell-carcinomas (HNSCC). Recent studies demonstrated a different clinical course depending on the tumour site. The aim of the study is to analyze the histopathologic/clinical features of BSCC/HNSCC resolved by the HPV-status. METHODS We analysed(More)
PURPOSE To determine the technical and clinical success of bronchial artery embolization (BAE) with the liquid embolic agent ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymer in patients with acute hemoptysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four patients (25 male; mean age, 58 y; range, 13-78 y) who underwent BAE with EVOH were retrospectively reviewed. Reasons for(More)
Die autologe Vene stellt im Allgemeinen das beste Ersatzmaterial für eine infizierte Gefäßprothese in Hinblick auf Handling, Langlebigkeit und Infektresistenz dar. Bei fehlendem autologem Material stehen verschiedene Optionen zur Verfügung, deren Anwendung bezogen auf diese Eigenschaften jeweils spezifische Vor- und Nachteile aufweist. In den letzten Jahren(More)
PURPOSE Evaluation of the technical success rate and complications when retrieving dislocated intravascular foreign bodies. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between 1999 and 2015 38 patients (21 female; 17 male; Age: 17 - 92; Average 54.3 years) underwent an extraction of intravascular dislocated foreign bodies, which were not lost during a radiological intervention.(More)
BACKGROUND Elderly patients with critical limb ischemia are increasingly treated through interventional therapy. The outcome of tibial and peroneal bypasses in octogenarians who were unsuitable for endovascular therapy remains unclear. METHODS We conducted a retrospective analysis of all patients who underwent tibial or peroneal bypass surgery in our(More)
BACKGROUND There are only a few options to replace infected infrainguinal synthetic vascular grafts in the absence of suitable autologous veins. To use a biosynthetic vascular graft (Omniflow®II) might be a valuable alternative. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical course of 29 patients who underwent replacement of an infected infrainguinal(More)
In general, autologous veins are the optimal replacement material for an infected vascular graft in terms of handling, durability and resistance to reinfection. In the absence of suitable autologous material, several options are available, each of which has specific advantages and drawbacks with regard to these characteristics. In recent years, xenogeneic(More)
