BACKGROUND Topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an excellent treatment option for actinic keratosis (AK). Pain is one of the major adverse effects. OBJECTIVE To compare the pain intensity during the extensive treatment of cosmetic units using 5-aminolaevulinic acid methylester (MAL) or 5-aminolaevulinic acid nanoemulsion (BF-200-ALA). METHODS 173(More)
BACKGROUND Topical photodynamic therapy is a good treatment option for extensively photodamaged skin with multiple actinic keratoses. Pain is one of the major adverse effects during and after the treatment. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine the pain intensity and its influencing factors during the extensive photodynamic treatment of complete cosmetic(More)
Treatment of displaced paediatric distal forearm fractures is not always successful. Re-occurrence of angular deformity is a frequent complication. No consensus exists when to perform secondary manipulations. The purpose of this study was to analyse the long-term outcome of re-angulated paediatric forearm fractures to determine if re-manipulations can be(More)
Blaschkitis is an acquired, rare dermatitis that follows the lines of Blaschko. Many consider blaschkitis as a variant of lichen striatus, although authors felt that it is a separate entity. A 2½-year-old girl presented with multiple grouped papules along the lines of Blaschko on her trunk. The main differences to lichen striatus are illustrated. Our case(More)
BACKGROUND Selective skeletonization of the internal mammary artery (IMA) without adjacent vasculo-muscular structures reduces trauma to the chest wall, results in elongated grafts, makes ideal graft positioning possible, and eliminates the need to implant a dissected or hypoplastic graft with direct visual control of the vessel. We compared two techniques(More)
Syndesmotic disruption occurs in more than 10% of ankle fractures. Operative treatment with syndesmosis screw fixation has been successfully performed for decades and is considered the gold standard of treatment. Few studies have reported the long-term outcomes of syndesmosis injuries. This study investigated long-term patient-reported, radiographic, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the deviations of four different cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) devices in three dimensions by means of a three-dimensional (3D) implant-planning program. MATERIALS AND METHODS A master radiographic template with two vertical, two transverse, and two sagittal radiopaque markers was fabricated for a human dry skull. The lengths(More)
