Several lines of evidence suggest that the auditory evoked potential (AEP) augmenting/reducing slope may serve as a biological marker of central serotonergic activity. According to Hegerl and Juckel (Biol. Psychiatry, 33, 1993, 173), reduced serotonergic activity is hypothesized to increase the slope of the AEP amplitude stimulus intensity function(More)
PURPOSE The effect of the treatment of anal cancer by performing a high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost during a short split between the external beam radiotherapy series (EBR) +/- chemotherapy was investigated. METHODS AND MATERIALS Thirty-nine patients with anal canal cancers, stages T1-T4 N0-2 M0, were treated with split-course EBR (50-50.4 Gy) and(More)
Immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence were performed on thyroid sections of 44 consecutive patients undergoing thyroid surgery for goiter due to iodine deficiency. Sections were compared with specimens from ten individuals without goiters from the same endemic area, with specimens from ten sporadic nontoxic goiter patients, and with specimens from an(More)
This study describes dendritic cells in thyroid sections of iodine deficient goiters. Cells were characterized by monoclonal markers and detected by immunohistochemistry and double labelling immunofluorescence. We observed dendritic cells located in focal aggregates in the interstitium and epitheloid cells as well as multinucleated giant cells filling(More)
Thyroid sections from 18 consecutive euthyroid patients undergoing surgery for iodine deficiency goitre were investigated by means of immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence, evaluating the expression of MHC class II antigens (HLA-DR, -DP, -DQ, and RFD1) and intercellular adhesion molecule-1 on the formerly described clusters of dendritic cells, as well(More)
From 1976 07 01 to 1981 06 30 we performed 882 operations of goiter. It seems to be essential, that the nodular goiter dominates respectively not decreases significantly in spite of iodized salt prophylaxis. An exact preoperative diagnosis and preparation decides about the postoperative success. The postoperative complications are described and analysed.(More)
Defecation disorders and incontinence are common following low anterior resection of the rectum. Transanal irrigation (TAI) has been reported to be a cheap and effective treatment for improving the quality of life (QoL) of patients suffering from low anterior resection syndrome (LARS). Based on these observations, as well as on the fact that the majority of(More)
