Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPS) of the urinary bladder was first described in 1980. We report four cases of IPS which occurred during the last four years. One tumor occurred in the bladder of a 49-year-old woman five months after abdominal hysterectomy of uterine leiomyomas, two tumors in a 35- and 39-year-old woman, respectively, without antecedental(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES After intraarticular application of gadolinium (Gd)-DTPA the visualization cartilage surface roughness is limited because of diffusion into the cartilage. To improve the sensitivity of magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography to diagnose cartilage surface abnormalities, the authors have tested liposome-entrapped contrast agents. (More)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to define safety and efficacy of medical therapy in the treatment of nonfunctioning pituitary tumours. Design: We studied thirteen patients with a clinically nonfunctioning pituitary macroadenoma for response to cabergoline treatment for 1 year. Twelve/13 patients were already operated and had residual or recurrent(More)
PURPOSE Basic scientific facts, such as anatomical structures, are rarely subjected to critical reappraisal. Nevertheless, several clinical phenomena exist which are inconsistent with the description of the anatomy of the so-called external sphincter muscle and urogenital diaphragm. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a global examination of the anatomy of(More)
We report here the isolation of the 5' end and the promoter region of the gene for chicken cartilage link protein, and demonstrate extensive heterogeneity of the leader sequence arising from differential utilization of multiple splice sites within the 5'-most exon. The 500-base pairs (bp) exon 1 consists of solely untranslated sequence and is followed by an(More)
Zusammenfassung Der Nachweis oder Ausschluss ossärer Verletzungen am Ellbogengelenk wird primär mit der Projektionsradiographie in 2 Ebenen geführt. Diese Basisdiagnostik wird durch Aufnahmen in 45°-Schrägprojektion ergänzt. Im Rahmen einer erweiterten Basisdiagnostik kommt die CT als überlagerungsfreies Schnittbildverfahren zum Einsatz. Im Vordergrund(More)
HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS A 41-year-old man was admitted to hospital for acute pain in the right flank. At first urolithiasis was suspected but excluded by sonography and excretion urography. Computed tomography (CT) was performed because of increasing pain and swelling of the left leg. It showed bilateral thrombosis of the deep leg and pelvic veins as(More)
The case described is that of a 36 years old patient with a known tumor in her lower abdominal cavity which has been observed to increase in size for the passed 16 years. Intraoperatively, one observed a very rare finding of an extra liver lobe of the left liver lobe and located in the lower abdominal cavity. Located within is a multifocal therapeutically(More)
Variations of the inferior vena cava (IVC) because of either embryonal malformations or postthrombotic changes are not uncommon. The clinical symptoms include repetitive thrombotic events. We report on an atypical case of acute abdomen resulting from thrombotic occlusion of the IVC and the right renal vein as well as of the collateral vessels.
