A novel computer aided manufacturing (CAM) method for electrocorticography (ECoG) microelectrodes was developed to be able to manufacture small, high density microelectrode arrays based on laser-structuring medical grade silicone rubber and high purity platinum. With this manufacturing process, we plan to target clinical applications, such as presurgical(More)
Thirty-six dog kidneys were perfused with different perfusion pressures (between 15 and 60 mm. Hg) for 72 hours and then transplanted. Hypothermic human albumin was the perfusion fluid. Enzyme release, kidney weight, and renal oxygen consumption were measured during perfusion. Kidneys perfused with a flow rate of 0.8 ml. per gram per minute (21 mm. Hg mean(More)
36 dog kidneys were perfused with different perfusion pressures (between 15 and 60 mm Hg) for 72 hrs and then transplanted. Hypothermic human albumin was the perfusion fluid. Kidneys perfused with a flow rate of 0.8 ml/g/min (21 mm Hg mean perfusion pressure) showed the smallest increase in kidney weight and the best function after transplantation. Renal(More)
The aim of these examinations was a comparison of the tensile strength and the histology of single and two-layer sutured gastrotomies applied to rats. Independent of the applied suture material and suture technique all experiments resulted in the same tensile strength of the suture between the 5th and 7th postoperative day as in the control group.(More)
Heterotopic pancreas is seen in one of every 500 laparotomies or 0.55-13% of autopsies. Despite modern diagnostic procedures (endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound) it is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. A 51-year-old patient with a 30-year history of recurrent gastric ulcers was diagnosed with a gastric wall tumor. Endoscopic biopsy sample showed normal(More)
In general, laparotomy is accepted as treatment of choice for abdominal shot wounds. However, the management of abdominal stab wounds is controversial. In order to study the concept of laparotomy for penetrating abdominal trauma our patient collective was analyzed retrospectively. From 1st January 1985 to 31st December 1993 we performed laparotomy in 30(More)
To assess the developments in the prognosis and treatment of patients with primary gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma we reviewed 178 papers in English, German, and French on the subject that were listed on MEDLINE between January 1974 and April 1995. We analysed the results of 3157 patients, and during that period the overall survival increased from 37% to(More)
Between 1971 and 1987, highly selective vagotomy (HSV) was carried out in 984 patients suffering from duodenal ulcer disease. In 97.3% of these cases, the surgical intervention was uncomplicated, the related mortality being 0.3%. During the follow-up period the postoperative condition of the patients was checked once a year wherever possible; in 92.3%,(More)
