This study was a multicenter evaluation of the SAVI SCOUT® breast localization and surgical guidance system using micro-impulse radar technology for the removal of nonpalpable breast lesions. The study was designed to validate the results of a recent 50-patient pilot study in a larger multi-institution trial. The primary endpoints were the rates of(More)
BACKGROUND Several methods have been developed to improve the efficacy of mechanical resuscitation, because organ perfusion achieved with conventional manual resuscitation is often insufficient. In animal studies, phased chest and abdominal compression-decompression resuscitation by use of the Lifestick device has resulted in a better outcome compared with(More)
The efficacy and safety of esmolol, a short-acting intravenous beta-adrenergic-blocking agent, and placebo were compared in patients with supraventricular tachyarrhythmias (heart rate greater than 120 bpm) in a multicenter, double-blind, partial-crossover study. Seventy-one patients were randomized to receive either esmolol (n = 36) or placebo (n = 35) as(More)
Exercise testing is generally accepted for prognostic assessment of patients after infarction, but the prognostic value of transient myocardial ischemia during ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring remains controversial. Of 281 consecutive postinfarction patients, 173 patients (132 men, 41 women) were prospectively studied with 24-hour Holter(More)
UNLABELLED In a retrospective study we examined the possible of obtaining better results with a new operation technique of the carotid artery, the so-called "no-touch isolation" in comparison with conventional operation technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS 49 patients, who had been operated in 1997 and 1998 by this new operation technique, were compared with a(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility and safety of transtympanic balloon dilatation of the eustachian tube. METHODS Transtympanic eustachian tube dilatation was performed on six cadaver heads using balloon catheters. Catheters were placed in each eustachian tube and the head scanned by computed tomography. Randomised, blinded dilatation of one balloon(More)
In 60 patients with acute myocardial infarction (pain < or = 4 h), we examined the value of ST segment monitoring in predicting early reperfusion, resulting left ventricular damage, and complications during hospitalization. Two criteria were determined by observation of the ST segment elevation during the first 4 h following initiation of thrombolysis.(More)
Colonoscopy is the standard technique in the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal neoplasia, but small adenomas and even advanced lesions can be missed during the procedure. With large scale screening colonoscopy programs installed, information on quality of colonoscopy in primary care is essential, but scarcely available. Over a period of 45 months, we(More)
