A case of disappearing bone disease of the proximal femur is reported with histopathological and immunohistochemical studies. There was a densely packed cellular tissue, positive to endothelial antibodies, in areas of massive bone destruction. A more differentiated vascular tissue was present where trabecular cancellous or cortical bone was preserved with(More)
Early reexamination of carbohydrate metabolism via an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is recommended after pregnancy with gestational diabetes (GDM). In this report, we aimed to assess the dominant patterns of dynamic OGTT measurements and subsequently explain them by meanings of the underlying pathophysiological processes. Principal components analysis(More)
Impaired glucose regulation (IGR) and hyperlipidemia (HL) are associated with an increased risk of developing a cardiovascular disease. Hyperlipidemic patients were shown to bear a greater risk for an increased intima media thickness (IMT). However little is known about differences between treated hyperlipidemic patients (HL) with normal (NGR) or impaired(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with hyperlipidemia are at high risk for developing a fatty liver. The fatty liver index (FLI) is a noninvasive and well-established method for the estimation of a fatty liver. However, little is known about the metabolic characterization of nondiabetic treated patients with hyperlipidemia who have different risk levels for a fatty(More)
AIMS There are emerging data indicating an association between PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and metabolic derangements with potential impact on its clinical presentation. This study aims to evaluate the pathophysiological processes beyond PCOS with particular focus on carbohydrate metabolism, ectopic lipids and their possible interaction. Differences(More)
OBJECTIVE In the long term, diabetes mellitus is potentially associated with the occurrence of microvascular damage. This study sought to assess whether a history of prior gestational diabetes mellitus is associated with long-term effects on the women's microcirculation. METHODS Within the scope of a long-term follow-up of the 'Viennese Post-Gestational(More)
This study investigated the effects of diphosphonates at scalar doses in a high bone turnover structure, namely, the proximal tibial metaphysis of rats. Arrest of bone modeling was represented by cylindrical-shaped metaphyses, increased height of the perichondrial bone bark, and persistence of primary metaphyseal trabeculae; these changes were dose-related.(More)
Objective. The aim of this study was to evaluate sex specific differences of metabolic and clinical characteristics of treated hyperlipidemic men and women (HL-men and HL-women). Methods. In this study vascular and metabolic characteristics of 35 HL-women and 64 HL-men were assessed. In addition a sex specific analysis of metabolic and nutritional habits of(More)
