We report the case of a 17-year-old boy who was hit by a high velocity train. The polytraumatized patient suffered a 3 degrees open femur defect fracture with a substantial loss of the lateral femoral muscles and significant disruption of the soft tissue of the lower leg. The enormous wound areas on the thigh and the lower leg were infected by Pseudomonas(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of transplanted chondrocytes on endochondral bone formation in cartilage repair tissue. In the knee joint of miniature pigs, cartilage lesions were treated by microfracturing and were then either left empty, covered with a collagen membrane, or treated by matrix-associated autologous chondrocyte(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the diagnostic value of low-cost computer monitors and a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) workstation for the evaluation of cervical spine fractures in the emergency room. METHODS Two groups of readers blinded to the diagnoses (2 radiologists and 3 orthopaedic surgeons) independently assessed-digital radiographs of(More)
Spatial perception is modulated by eye movements. During smooth pursuit, perceived locations are shifted in the direction of the eye movement. During active fixation, visual space is perceptually compressed towards the fovea. In our present study, we were interested to determine the time course of spatial localization during pursuit initiation, i.e. the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the reproducibility of brain-activation and eye-movement patterns in a saccade paradigm when comparing subjects, tasks, and magnetic resonance (MR) systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five healthy adults at two different sites (n = 45) performed saccade tasks with varying levels of target predictability: predictable (PRED), position(More)
Emotional instability, difficulties in social adjustment, and disinhibited behavior are the most common symptoms of the psychiatric comorbidities in juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). This psychopathology has been associated with dysfunctions of mesial-frontal brain circuits. The present work is a first direct test of this link and adapted a paradigm for(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the costs involved in treating severely injured patients at the clinic differentiated by several characteristics (injury, age), sectors (emergency room, surgery, intensive and normal care), and kinds of costs (fixed costs, variable costs) and to determine influencing factors regarding costs based on the register of the(More)
