Changes in cortisol and behavioral responses were examined longitudinally in 83 infants (39 girls, 44 boys) tested at their well-baby exams with inoculations at 2, 4, 6, and 15 months (72 infants completed all testing). Another sample of 2-, 4-, and 6-month-olds (n = 18 per age) received mock exams without inoculations to determine early developmental(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies hypothesized that seasonal affective disorder (SAD) was caused by a circadian rhythm abnormality. The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether rest-activity rhythms were phase delayed, diminished in amplitude, or more poorly entrained to the 24-hour day. METHOD Twenty healthy adult controls and 25 outpatients meeting(More)
Introduction: Postpancreatectomy haemorrhage (PPH) is a dangerous complication after pancreatic resection. Patients and Methods: From 2006 to 2015, 400 consecutive pancreatic head resections and pancreatectomies were performed and prospectively documented. This study analysed incidence, treatment and outcome of patients with PPH. Results: Incidence of PPH(More)
The long-term anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties and the safety of deflazacort (Calcort, CAS 14484-47-0) were assessed investigating the effect on clinical symptoms and safety parameters in patients with rheumatoid arthritis compared to prednisone as standard therapy in a randomized double-blind controlled clinical trial. Monitoring was(More)
Gastrointestinal motility can be impaired by serious illness or medications, compromising enteral feeding in critical care patients. We compared small bowel transit time and morphology in neurosurgical critical care (ICU) patients with those in healthy subjects. We evaluated small intestinal transit time, quality of visualization and intestinal morphology(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to use a novel wireless motility capsule to compare gastric emptying and small bowel transit times in critically ill trauma patients and healthy volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated gastric emptying, small bowel transit time, and total intestinal transit time in 8 critically ill trauma patients. These data(More)
BACKGROUND Thrombangiitis obliterans or Buerger's disease is a segmental inflammatory disease affecting small and medium-sized veins and arteries, which most often affects young smokers leading to thrombophlebitis and acral ischaemic syndromes, inducing high amputation rates. Based on positive results of a former pilot study we report on our results of(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative pancreatic fistula is a relevant complication after pancreatoduodenectomy. Therefore, preoperative detection of high risk patients may be important. We evaluated preoperative CT-imaging by planimetry at the expected resection plane along the superior mesenteric vein and correlated the results with the incidence of postoperative(More)
