OBJECTIVES The aim of this research was to evaluate kinetics and extent of myocardial contrast enhancement (CE) in comparison with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) early after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND Quantification of infarct size serves as a surrogate end point in evaluating new therapies of AMI. Contrast-enhanced(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Epidemiology, clinical features and long term-course of chronic hepatitis D were addressed in a non-endemic Central European area. METHODS Sixty-seven patients with chronic hepatitis D were identified among 1307 HBsAg carriers at the university hospital Düsseldorf during two decades (1989 - 2008) and followed for a mean of 7 +/- 6 years.(More)
The hereditary metabolic disorder variegate porphyria (VP) may present with an acute porphyric attack, porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT)-like lesions or with a combination of both. However, many patients remain asymptomatic. Triggering factors include drugs, alcohol, diets, menstruation as well as stress. Association is described with hepatocellular carcinoma.(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the diagnostic value of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for detection of myocardial necrosis after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND Single-photon emission computed tomography is widely accepted in the clinical setting for(More)
