As a part of the physical-technical program of the heavy-ion therapy project at GSI we have investigated the nuclear fragmentation of high-energy ion beams delivered by the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS, using water as a tissue-equivalent target. For a direct comparison of fragmentation properties, beams of 10B, 12C, 14N, and 16O were produced simultaneously as(More)
A 65-year-old Caucasian man was admitted to the Cardiothoracic Department for elec-tive coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). At pre-operative bidimensional transtho-racic echocardiography (TTE), a narrowing of the ascending aorta was observed: the inner lumen was reduced by a circum-ferential, bulky ridge of tissue projecting from the aortic wall and(More)

We present two cases of Amplatzer® device deployment that exhibited long-term failure necessitating surgical correction. The first case illustrates recanalization of a ruptured Valsalva aneurysm with worsening aortic insufficiency after percutaneous repair with the Amplatzer Vascular Plugs and Amplatzer duct occluder, while the second case illustrates(More)
