The objective was to compare the radial strength and expansile precision of self-expanding stents and balloon-expandable stents in a human cadaver bifurcation model. Seven different self-expanding (LUMINEXX, JOSTENT SelfX, JOSTENT SelfX hrf, Sinus-Repo, Sinus SuperFlex, Easy Wallstent, SMART) and four different balloon-expandable stent models (Palmaz, Sinus(More)
The mechanisms by which inflammatory bowel disease causes chronic injury to the gastrointestinal tract are poorly understood. To determine whether antioxidant defenses might be altered, we evaluated plasma antioxidant concentrations in 24 children with inflammatory bowel disease (12 with Crohn disease and 12 with ulcerative colitis) and in 23 healthy(More)
Erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity is measured with a centrifugal analyzer by use of a commercial reagent kit and of the reaction glucose-6-phosphate + NADP+ leads to 6-phosphogluconolactone + NADPH. Rate of production of NADPH is measured and related to hemoglobin concentration. Maleimide is added to inhibit further production of NADPH(More)
A total of 123 patients with neonatal liver disease without extrahepatic bile duct obstruction or arteriohepatic dysplasia have been studied for six to 18 years. Idiopathic neonatal hepatitis, present in 73 babies, carried a high mortality due to liver failure (18%), septicaemia (6%), and associated defects (14%), especially in the first year of life (25%).(More)
Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) may be subdivided into two forms, classical and limited. The latter specifically excludes renal disease and carries a better prognosis. Both forms have sight-threatening complications, but the relative incidence of ocular manifestations in each is not well documented. Patients with limited (n = 15) and classical (n = 16) WG(More)
A cross-sectional study was performed to define patients at risk of developing liver disease due to long-term treatment with anticonvulsive drugs. The activities of gamma-glutamyltransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, and alanine aminotransferase and the concentrations of primidone, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and valproic acid in serum were estimated.(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To develop a new model for a more realistic evaluation of radial strength and elastic recoil of balloon expandable stents using a new ex vivo model in human cadaver bifurcations of the aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four different stents (each group n = 10) were implanted in cadaver common iliac arteries. Randomization was performed(More)
A 55-year-old man was referred to our department with bleeding from a painless tumor located at the left parietal region of the head which had been progressively growing for a period of 2 years. Physical examination showed a fist-sized pediculated mass overlying the left parietal region and the auricle. The partly livid and ulcerated surface of the tumor(More)
Rats with hyperlipidemia associated with streptozotocin-induced diabetes or azotemia after subtotal nephrectomy were administered a diet containing 5% activated charcoal. Significant lowering of nonfasting serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels resulted. Charcoal-feeding also altered the abnormal high density lipoprotein electrophoresis pattern of(More)
