This report presents an unusual case of late, aortic hemorrhage that occurred during the removal of the stabilizing bar 3 years after a Nuss operation. The primary reason for this complication was a rotation of the sternum bar, which caused chronic damage to the aorta and development of an aortomediastinal fistula. Cardiopulmonary bypass and implantation of(More)
Even though some mobile network operators are already ramping up Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks, the biggest portion of mobile network revenues will still be generated in HSPA networks for the coming years. Also, the current exponential increase in mobile data rate demand provides a strong motivation to further evolve HSPA networks in parallel to(More)
OBJECTIVES Data from studies performed in Japanese and Korean populations suggest that free amino acid profiles have the potential to aid in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) detection. However, there is still no data regarding abnormalities of free amino acids and their usefulness in NSCLC detection in European populations. The aim of the study was an(More)
METIS is developing a 5G system concept that meets the requirements of the beyond-2020 connected information society and supports new usage scenarios. To meet the objectives METIS uses Horizontal Topics (HT) that addresses a key new challenge, identifies necessary new functionalities and proposes HT-specific concepts. This paper presents an initial view of(More)
Due to high mortality rates of lung cancer, there is a need for identification of new, clinically useful markers, which improve detection of this tumor in early stage of disease. In the current study, serum peptide profiling was evaluated as a diagnostic tool for non-small cell lung cancer patients. The combination of the ZipTip technology with(More)
Device to device (D2D) communication is expected to be an important aspect in future 5G communication systems. To this end, D2D has been identified as an important topic in the EU flagship project METIS, wherein commercial D2D use cases are also considered. In principle, direct D2D communication offers the double benefit of low latency and high data rate at(More)
Every new generation of wireless cellular systems starts with bold, high-level requirements and predictions of its capabilities, often detached from the concurrent work on detailed technological innovations and solutions to specific problems. To bridge this gap, and the framework for a 5G research agenda, the METIS project has developed a system concept.(More)
BACKGROUND The routine use of postoperative pleural cavity drainage after the Nuss procedure is not widely accepted, and its limited use depends on experience. This study analyzed the influence of pleural drainage in the surgical treatment of patients with pectus excavatum on the prevention of pneumothorax and the efficacy of using drainage after a(More)
AIM In this study we analysed the early and late results of surgical treatment of asymmetrical pectus excavatum using complex surgery combining the Ravitch procedure and the Nuss procedure in the same general anaesthesia. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighty out of 938 patients with pectus excavatum operated on between 2002 and 2013, 67 males and 13 females aged(More)
Poland’s syndrome is a very rare type of chest deformation found in 1 : 32,000 – 1 : 52,500 live births [1, 2]. Its treatment most often involves the reconstruction of the mammary glands with the transposition of a pedicled muscle-skin flap using Marlex mesh [3, 4] or the repair of the chest’s bone structure. The coexistence of multiple developmental(More)
