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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was a comparison of early and late results in surgical treatment of funnel chest using the Nuss method in patients in various age groups to find the optimal age to perform the corrective procedure. METHODS Six hundred eighty patients operated on from June 2002 to October 2012 were included in the retrospective analysis.(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)
