To determine the effect of metabolic control on bone mineral density (BMD) in type 1 diabetes mellitus (type 1 DM), we studied BMD (by dual-energy X-ray energy absorptiometry) and bone remodeling parameters in 62 patients with type 1 DM both before and 7 years after commencement of intensive insulin therapy. Overall outcomes after the 7-year treatment(More)
Evidence suggests that recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) increases the mechanical integrity of callus tissue during bone healing. This effect may be either explained by an increase of callus formation or a modification of the trabecular microarchitecture. Therefore the purpose of the study was to evaluate the potential benefit of(More)
The effects of different deoxyuridine (dU) concentrations on lymphocytes stimulated with phytohemagglutinin (PHA) were studied for use in a lymphocyte dU suppression test (L-dUST). High concentrations of dU were necessary to overcome the unspecific spontaneous pattern of folate deficiency, dU suppression tests with cells of bone marrow (BM-dUST) and with(More)
The diagnostic algorithm in cases of assumed low-grade infection after total knee arthroplasty is discussed controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of neosynovium biopsies via knee arthroscopies in predicting a periprosthetic knee joint infection (PJI). From 2010 to 2015, 56 consecutive patients received a diagnostic arthroscopy(More)
In the current study the clinical outcome of an arthroscopic posterior bone block augmentation in combination with a posterior capsular repair was investigated. Twenty-four shoulders (18 patients) with unidirectional posterior shoulder instability were treated with an arthroscopic posterior bone block and capsular reconstruction. The mean follow up period(More)
BACKGROUND Locking plate fixation is increasingly used for first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP-I) arthrodesis. There are still few comparable clinical data regarding this procedure. In this study we aimed to compare the clinical and radiographical outcomes of crossed-screws, locking and non-locking plate fixation with lag screw for first(More)
The screening for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in nasopharyngeal secretions with enzyme immunoassay (ELISA) and indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) has been evaluated in infants and young children with acute respiratory infection. Both methods were compared with viral isolation in HEp-2 cells and the investigation of fluorescent foci in cell cultures(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the stabilizing influence of the rotator cuff as well as the importance of glenosphere and onlay configuration on the anterior stability of the reverse total shoulder replacement (RTSR). A reverse total shoulder replacement was implanted into eight human cadaveric shoulders, and biomechanical testing was performed(More)
Clinical studies on primary osteoarthritis have shown better results of total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) compared to hemiarthroplasty (HA) regarding the function, revision rate and postoperative pain relief. However, a clear recommendation for implantation of TSA or HA, depending on the glenoid type of erosion, does not exist. The aim of the study was to(More)
