On the basis of widely laterally resected anterior chest walls, ossification specimens of femal (n = 95) and male (n = 112) individuals of different age have been examined. An unexpected high significance of the already described sex-dimorphism could be secured between the 20th and 50th year of age. The estimated epiphenomenological changes impress as a(More)
The effects of two modalities of dose-escalated radiotherapy on health-related quality of life (HRQOL) were compared. Forty-one consecutive patients were treated with a 3-D conformal (3-DC) boost to 74 Gy, and 43 with high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost (2x9 Gy), following 3-D conformal treatment to 46 Gy. Median age was 70 years in both groups, median(More)

Parameters of the blood chemistry offer no conclusive data. The angiogram of the mesenteric vessels demonstrates extensive arterial vasoconstriction as well as an obstructed venous outflow.

MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-four consecutive patients with low-risk prostate cancer were asked to complete the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire with the prostate-specific PR25 module before(More)
