Patients with extended vascular anomalies may suffer from significant aesthetic and functional impairment and represent a challenge to therapeutic planning, which is best met by an interdisciplinary concept. In agreement with the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA), vascular lesions are classified into haemangiomas as(More)
Overexpression of the HER2-receptor in early breast cancer (EBC) patients is associated with aggressive tumor behavior. However, women suffering from HER2-positive EBC benefit from trastuzumab treatment. As the HER2 status of the primary tumor may differ from that of disseminated tumor cells (DTC) in bone marrow (BM), the aim of this study was (1) to(More)
AIM Image-data-based navigation plays an important role during surgical treatment in anatomically complex areas. Conventional patient-to-image registration techniques on the basis of skin and bone markers require expensive and time-consuming logistic support. A new markerless, high-resolution laser surface scan technique for patient registration has been(More)
Children with nonsyndromatic isolated metopic suture synostosis suffer from a significant deformity of the supraorbital ridges, the temporal regions and hypotelorism. We retrospectively analyzed 54 consecutive cases of isolated nonsyndromatic metopic synostosis treated over a 14-year-period. The data were evaluated using patients' clinical records, skull(More)
OBJECTIVE AND AIM Severe cases of bone atrophy in the maxilla or mandible are often reconstructed using bone from extraoral donor sides. Most commonly, grafts from the iliac crest are used for augmentation, however, frequently associated with bone resorption as possible late complication. Calvarial bone grafts, often reported to show less resorption, are an(More)
Hintergrund. Computertomographische Untersuchungen erlauben eine v. a. im Kopf- und Halsbereich bedeutsame überlagerungsfreie Darstellung anatomischer Strukturen. In der Regel genügt eine präoperative Untersuchung zur Beurteilung des Ausgangszustands, bei bestimmten Indikationen ist jedoch eine intraoperative Kontrolle des Behandlungserfolgs wünschenswert.(More)
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is frequently characterized by high resistance to radiotherapy, which critically depends on both altered signaling pathways within tumor cells and their dynamic interaction with the tumor microenvironment. This study evaluated the prognostic value of the phosphorylation status of AKT on Ser473 and Thr308 for the(More)
Die antiadrenerge Therapie mit Betablockern bei der chronischen Herzinsuffizienz hat sich nach 25 Jahren von einer Kontraindikation zu einer etablierten Behandlungsform additiv zu einer konventionellen Basistherapie mit Diuretikum, einem ACE-Hemmer (alternativ AT1-Antagonist) und optional Digitalis entwickelt. Pathophysiologie: Eine kompensatorische(More)
In recent years, evaluation of cardiac autonomic activity be means of heart rate variability (HRV) determination and baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) testing has become readily available. The results of the ATRAMI (Autonomic Tone and Reflexes After Myocardial Infarction) study showed that both diminished HRV and baroreflex sensitivity are associated with poor(More)
In a retrospective study, Kaplan-Meier implant survival analyses were conducted on 883 patients with 1,964 implants of various systems placed, followed up, documented, and statistically evaluated at an oral surgery and dentistry practice between January 1981 and January 1997. The goal of this study was to evaluate the success of osseointegrated implants of(More)
