Accumulation of fat mass in obesity may result from hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia and is frequently associated with adipose tissue (AT) dysfunction in adults. Here we assessed early alterations in AT biology and function by comprehensive experimental and clinical characterization of 171 AT samples from lean and obese children aged 0 to 18 years. We show an(More)
INTRODUCTION In a recent study on hepatitis C prevalence, we identified a high prevalence of elevated liver enzymes, well above 10 %, in orthopaedic surgery patients without evidence for viral hepatitis. We now report in another cohort, that the prevalence is indeed in that range, and that in these patients elevated liver enzymes are likely indicators for(More)
Recent studies suggested the persistence of brown adipocytes in adult humans, as opposed to being exclusively present in infancy. In this study, we investigated the presence of brown-like adipocytes in adipose tissue (AT) samples of children and adolescents aged 0 to 18 years and evaluated the association with age, location, and obesity. For this, we(More)
The rare case of an osteoid osteoma in the distal phalanx of the 2nd toe resulting in painful enlargement and hypertrophy of the entire toe in a 12-year-old girl is discussed. The tumour was excised and the oversize of the toe was corrected by exarticulation of the distal phalanx. 18 months postoperatively the patient demonstrates normal function of her(More)
INTRODUCTION The prevalence of chronic hepatitis C in Germany is about 0.2 - 0.4 %. However, there seems to be regional differences between western and eastern states of the country. Thus, the present study analysed the prevalence of chronic hepatitis C in a cohort of orthopaedic patients in Thuringia. METHODS Tests for antibodies against hepatitis C(More)

The method of retransfusion of drainage blood as known from the literature was investigated in a prospectiv study regarding effectivness and rate of side effects. 200 patients who underwent total hip and knee arthroplasty were investigated concerning hemoglobin, hematocrit, amount and quality of the retransfused drainage blood, the amount of autologous and(More)
Die Epiphysenlösung des Hüftgelenkes (ECF) ist eine multifaktoriell bedingte Gefügelockerung im Bereich der Wachstumsfuge zwischen Epiphyse und Metaphyse mit Abrutsch des Hüftkopfes nach dorso-medio-caudal ohne zusätzliches, adäquates Trauma. Die operative Behandlung erfolgt zumeist mittels Kurzgewindeschrauben mit nachfolgendem Wachstumsstop des(More)
Bis zu 4 % aller Neugeborenen in Mitteleuropa kommen mit einer kongenitalen Hüftdysplasie (KHD) auf die Welt, die somit die häufigste angeborene Erkrankung des Bewegungsapparats ist. Im Rahmen der hier vorgestellten retrospektiven Erhebung wurden die Therapieergebnisse von Neugeborenen mit KHD Typ D, III oder IV nach Graf nachuntersucht, die mit einer(More)
The aneurysmatic bone cyst (ABC) is a benign primary bone tumour. If located in the cervical spine, its expansive growth and destructive behaviour may lead to instability and serious neurological impairment. We report a case of a 16-year-old boy with an aggressive ABC in the 7th cervical vertebra. Computertomographic and magnetic resonance imaging revealed(More)
