A case of multiple bile duct hamartomas (von Meyenburg complex) of the liver accompanied by exudative and in part necrotizing pancreatitis is presented. Magnetic resonance imaging (fat suppressed, T2-weighted images with prolonged echo time) could exclude diffuse tumor infiltration of the liver, which had not been possible with CT, sonography, or ERCP. To(More)
OBJECTIVES Clinical prognosis and treatment schedules of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are dependent on tumor stage. This explains the importance of an exact pretreatment staging of the primary tumor and lymph nodes especially in locally advanced NSCLC, to differentiate between resectable and non-resectable disease. To assess the lymph node status of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common congenital infection and nongenetic cause of congenital sensorineural hearing loss in the United States. Utah was the first state to pass legislation mandating CMV screening for newborns who fail newborn hearing screening (NBHS). The study objective was to present outcomes of(More)
UNLABELLED Data of 235 patients with chronic mitral valve disease (NYHA class III or IV) were analyzed retrospectively. Mitral valve replacement was performed in all patients between 1974 and 1983, 46 patients underwent additional tricuspid valve repair during the same operation. Preoperatively, right and left heart catheterization as well as coronary(More)
A 39 years old woman was noted to have a submucosal gastric tumor during gastroscopy for cholecystectomy. She was asymptomatic regarding this tumor. The patient was primarily observed, but the tumor size increased. The lesion was biopsied with a negative result. A local excision with simultaneous endoscopy was done laparoscopically. Malignancy was excluded(More)
Data obtained from 683 patients with mitral valve disease, NYHA-class III or IV, were retrospectively studied by means of a multivariate Cox regression analysis. Based on symptoms and hemodynamic findings, surgical intervention had been recommended for all patients: closed mitral commissurotomy (n = 361), prosthetic mitral valve replacement (n = 241) and(More)
Based on animal trials the presented study describes two versions of thoracoscopic oesophageal anastomosis within the scope of abdomino-thoracoscopic oesophagectomy. This experimental approach is considered to provide a solution for the oncological problem to salvage the tumor bearing oesophagus. We describe the procedure of intrathoracic stapler(More)
Die videoassistierte Thorakoskopie (VATS) ist ein ergänzendes Verfahren in der Diagnostik und Therapie von Patienten mit stumpfem Thoraxtrauma. Indikationen für eine Thorakoskopie nach Thoraxtrauma sind die intrathorakale Blutung, der persisitierende Pneumothorax, der nicht ausreichend dränierbare Hämatothorax, der Chylothorax, das posttraumatische(More)
