This study was designed to determine whether ectomycorrhizal mats (ECM) are more likely to be present in soils at the base of common understory trees than in soils distant from trees and to determine whether occurrence of ECM is related to tree size. Three understory trees were studied: Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia Nutt.), western hemlock (Tsuga(More)
The changes of the acid-base- and blood-gas parameters were continuously measured during a two-day food abstinence (but fluid intake free of calories) by means of the blood-gas-automaton ABL 1 with the help of 20 test persons. The denutrition causes a decrease of the metabolic components and of the pCO2, but not of the blood-pH and pO2. The decrease of the(More)
Interscapulothoracic amputation, disarticulation of the hip and hemipelvectomy were performed relatively seldom in the past. The results in 38 patients demonstrate that the aim to save the extremity at all events at the beginning of treatment will often lead to incurable conditions later on. Radical surgery of sarcomas of the extremities is the only chance(More)
On the basis of two cases the development of a severe postoperative malabsorption syndrome after resection of the stomach with predisposition to a gastroenterostomia ileoterminalis. The fatal course in one of the patients is made the occasion to discuss the causes of the operatively conditioned failures and to demonstrate the symptomatology of a(More)
Based on 3 observations the relatively rare pseudo-obstruction of the colon is described. The pathophysiological mechanism is still unknown. In chronic or subacute cases a conservative treatment seems to be justified. However this does not apply to advanced cases or when there is threat of a colon perforation.

Between 1963 and 1970, 136 cases of mastopathy were recorded from among 558 women who had undergone outpatient breast surgery. These cases were histomorphologically rated and were followed up for periods between 15 and 22 years. Carcinoma developed in nine of 121 patients, accounting for a 7.5-fold cancer risk. The cancer risk was separately calculated for(More)
