Normal subjects were asked to make rapid flexions of the legs from a stationary initial standing posture in a self-paced mode. Because this movement implicates a rapid change in posture, questions were asked about the type of central command which must include the rupture of the erect posture and the accomplishment of the goal directed movement. Movements(More)
Systolic and diastolic diameters of the pulmonary artery anulus (PA-A), pulmonary artery sinus (PA-S), pulmonary artery trunc (PA-St), as well as those of the right and left pulmonary arteries (RPA, LPA) were measured from cineangiograms of 51 infants, children and adolescents without heart disease (n = 16) or with cardiovascular malformations which had no(More)
We prospectively examined 1016 infants and children with congenital heart disease (CHD) to detect additional malformation patterns. They were divided into two major groups. In the first group (n = 881), the CHD either occurred alone or was accompanied by a major extracardiac malformation (n = 68, 7.7%). In the second group (n = 135, 13.3%), the CHD was part(More)
Forty-four infants, children and adolescents with endocarditis were observed at the Paediatric Clinic of the Düsseldorf University from 1970 to 1981. The mean follow-up was more than 5 years. There was a high incidence under the age of 2 years, but only two of the seven infants involved proved to have genuine bacterial endocarditis (BE) as was the case with(More)
UNLABELLED Three-dimensional echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging allow the volumetric analysis of ventricular volumes independent of geometric assumptions. The aim of the study was to compare these methods and the common angiocardiography in a cardiac model of known volume. METHODS/MATERIALS Right and left ventricular (RV, LV-) volumes were(More)
Der komplette AV-Block (AVB) im Kindesalter ist eine seltene Rhythmusstörung, die durch eine Vielzahl von Ursachen bedingt sein kann. Ziel unserer Studie war es, die unterschiedlichen Ursachen, klinischen Verläufe und die Indikationen für eine Schrittmachertherapie aufzuzeichnen. Methoden: Die Krankengeschichten, EKG’s, und Langzeit-EKG von 71 Patienten mit(More)
The study of 16 newborn of birthweight less than or equal to 2,200 g characterized by a common point: the presence of PLACENTA PRAEVIA IN THE MOTHER, enabled us to come to grips with the severe respiratory distress that these newborn can have. From the clinical standpoint: there is always early respiratory distress. From the radiological standpoint: by far(More)
21 infants and children with proven bacterial endocarditis were observed at the Unviersity Children Hospital of Düsseldorf from January 1969 to December 1976. There was high incidence of cases in the infant group and again among the 6 to 8 years old children. Some important aspects of the disease were characteristic for the infant group (N=5): No congenital(More)
Between 1966 and 1973 145 palliative procedures were carried out on 110 infants with transposition of the great arteries. There were 23 early deaths (20.9 per cent). 85 per cent of the survivors were controlled till the end of 1974. Five late deaths and four cases of peripheral artery embolism were regarded. These complications, however, took place several(More)
