Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), subsequent to pulmonary embolism is a relatively frequent cause of pulmonary hypertension. Similar to patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), CTEPH carries a poor prognosis. There is no hard evidence for any other therapy except pulmonary endarterectomy and none for those patients that are(More)
BACKGROUND The nephrotoxicity induced by contrast media remains a serious clinical problem, and the underlying mechanism has not been completely understood. Experimental and clinical investigations suggest that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are critical determinants of radiocontrast nephropathy (RCN), and that antioxidants can prevent this damage. METHODS(More)

Objective testing for pulmonary embolism is necessary, because clinical assessment alone is unreliable and the consequences of misdiagnosis are serious. No single test has ideal properties (100% sensitivity and specificity, no risk, low cost). Pulmonary angiography is regarded as the final arbiter but is ill suited for diagnosing a disease present in only a(More)
The free and open source Tele-Operation Platform of the MPI for Biological Cybernetics (TeleKyb) is an endto-end software framework for the development of bilateral teleoperation systems between human interfaces (e.g., haptic force feedback devices or gamepads) and groups of quadrotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Among drivers for devices and robots(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about the regional distribution of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in nonanesthetized animals during periods of lowered blood pressure. The present investigation addresses the specific reaction patterns of local cerebral blood flow (LCBF) in comparison with mean CBF during graded pressure-controlled hemorrhagic shock in conscious rats.(More)
In this paper we propose and experimentally validate a bilateral teleoperation framework where a group of UAVs are controlled over an unreliable network with typical intercontinental time delays and packet losses. This setting is meant to represent a realistic and challenging situation for the stability the bilateral closed-loop system. In order to increase(More)
dungsreaktion nur bei sehr niedrigen oder sehr hohen Werten möglich ist, eine Vermutung, die sich in der Praxis als richtig erweist. Sie wird gestützt durch die bereits in der ersten Hälfte des vorigen Jahrhunderts vielfach untersuchten, aber teilweise vergessenen oder in der klinischen Praxis nicht ausreichend berücksichtigten Tagesschwankungen.

Lung resection offers the best prospect of long-term survival in patients with nonmetastatic pulmonary neoplasia. In view of the dismal prognosis of unresected bronchial cancer, surgical resection should be encouraged even in patients with reduced cardiopulmonary function. Accurate estimation of the postoperative cardiopulmonary function is therefore(More)
