Evaluation of suitability and safety of venous port implantation with catheter insertion via the right internal jugular vein in oncology patients. One hundred one totally implantable venous ports were placed in 100 patients with malignancies from January 1, 2003 until March 31, 2005. Catheter of venous port was preferably inserted via the right internal(More)
We evaluated and measured by high performance liquid chromatography the plasma amino acid levels in 11 female patients with anorexia nervosa during a period of significant loss of body weight, compared with 11 healthy age-matched controls. Total amino acid and total branched-chain amino acid levels were similar in both groups, however significantly higher(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus is known to be a risk factor of the coronary heart disease even in the asymptomatic patients. Only a limited number of reports comparing the significance of different noninvasive stress tests in establishing the diagnosis of the advanced coronary lesions exists. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare the significance(More)
Capnocytophaga canimorsus is a commensal bacterium found in the saliva of dogs and cats. Clinically significant infections in humans after a bite are often associated with the presence of immune deficiency. Early recognition and appropriate treatment are crucial for patient survival. In addition, patients with immune deficiency are susceptible to serious(More)
Dentine hypersensitivity in cervical areas and severe dentine sensitivity in teeth prepared for restorations were treated with a titaniumtetrafluoride solution. Patients included in the study complained spontaneously about the sensitivity in intact dentine surfaces. Thirty patients with at least one tooth on each side of the maxilla and/or mandible(More)
This prospective study evaluated the relationship between echocardiography parameters of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function and mild-to-moderate renal function impairment in 82 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The mean age of the patients was 61.1 years. A significant correlation was found between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)(More)
This study compared the effects of soybean oil- versus olive oil-based lipid emulsions on hepatobiliary function and serum triacylglycerols in patients who required transient parenteral nutrition support for significant weight loss. Patients who received a parenteral ready-to-use industry admixture including either soybean oil- (n = 10) or olive oil-based(More)
Diabetes mellitus is associated with a poor cardiovascular prognosis. Stress myocardial single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) reliably detects coronary ischaemia in asymptomatic patients. Our study aimed to evaluate the association between systolic and diastolic left ventricular function, left ventricular hypertrophy, endothelial function and(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare full metal crowns with two different types of veneering material - ceramics and polymer after a two-year period in a function. The aim was to evaluate the changes of occlusal relief, marginal adaptation, break of material, changes of shape and color and gingival status. One hundred and two crowns were examined in 34(More)
