Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma has drawn attention in the last twenty years due to its pathological and clinical characteristics. It is a question of B-cell neoplasm with extranodal origin, and with invariable prolonged localisation, indicating indolent malignancy. It is believed that this type of lymphoproliferative neoplasm is triggered(More)
The data about the fatty acid (FA) status of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients are poor. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the FA profile of serum phospholipids in NHL patients related to the aggressiveness and clinical stage of NHL. We analyzed the FA profile of serum phospholipids in 47 newly diagnosed, untreated NHL patients and in 29(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between exercise-induced changes in mitral regurgitation (MR) and echocardiographic characteristics of mitral deformation, global left ventricular (LV) function and shape at rest and after exercise. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty consecutive patients with ischaemic MR due to prior myocardial infarction(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyse the demographics, causes and characteristics of maxillofacial fractures managed at several European departments of oral and maxillofacial surgery over one year. The following data were recorded: gender, age, aetiology, site of facial fractures, facial injury severity score, timing of intervention, length of hospital(More)
Since diastolic dysfunction is an early sign of the heart disease, detecting diastolic disturbances is predicted to be the way for early recognizing underlying heart disease in athletes. So-called chamber stiffness index (E/e')/LVDd was predicted to be useful in distinguishing physiological from pathological left ventricular hypertrophy, because it was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to present and discuss the results of a European multicentre prospective study about pediatric maxillofacial trauma epidemiology during a year. STUDY DESIGN The following data were recorded: gender, age, etiology, site of fracture, date of injury. Of the 3396 patients with maxillofacial fractures admitted within the(More)
Determining direct synaptic connections of specific neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) is a major technical challenge in neuroscience. As a corollary, molecular pathways controlling developmental synaptogenesis in vivo remain difficult to address. Here, we present genetic tools for efficient and versatile labeling of organelles, cytoskeletal(More)
INTRODUCTION Autonomic regulation of cardiovascular functions in congestive heart failure is characterised by enhanced sympathetic and diminished parasympathetic activity. The long term predominance of sympathetic tone is a significant factor in arrhythmogenesis, sudden cardiac death, and progressive pump failure. Heart rate variability (HRV) is a(More)
PURPOSE We sought to determine the prevalence and characteristics of heart failure in patients with newly diagnosed acromegaly. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We assessed 102 consecutive patients who had acromegaly (44 men; age range, 22 to 71 years) for signs and symptoms of heart failure. We included a control group of 33 nonobese healthy subjects (13 men; age(More)
