Patients with concomitant disorders affecting the peripheral nervous system were excluded. Thirty patients had clinical signs of a mild sensorimotor and distal neuropathy and 13 additional patients(More)
Nodule formation on ITO sputtering targets was investigated by stop action in-situ video observation, 3D-SIMS, and EPMA. Major cause of nodule formation is particulates from the sputtering system, less important are particulate inclusions in the target material. A nodule growth mechanism and strategies to minimize nodule formation are proposed.
In 11 patients with hepatic coma (stage IV and V according to Abouna) extracorporeal haemoperfusion using the Scribner shunt (radial or profunda femoris artery) was performed over 12 to 27 hours with 22 baboon and one human livers. Eight patients emerged from coma, six of them showed sufficient regeneration of the diseased liver. Four patients were(More)
Irregular astigmatism, the clinical manifestation of corneal warpage, was evaluated as a cause of decreased visual acuity in 24 patients with anterior membrane dystrophy (map-dot-fingerprint type). Qualitative ophthalmometry demonstrated corneal warpage in 20 of the patients. The best corrected visual acuity was improved with contact lenses over that(More)
Adult acid maltase deficiency (AMD, glycogen storage disease type II) may involve respiratory muscles leading to severe respiratory failure even before the affection of pelvic girdle muscles has turned the patient non-ambulatory. The case of a 29-year-old woman is presented to demonstrate that long-term survival is possible even after acute respiratory(More)
OBJECTIVE Wet labs are an important part of ophthalmology residency training in order to develop intraocular surgical proficiency. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of formalin versus microwave treatment to produce porcine cadaveric cataracts. DESIGN This study was a comparative observational study at a single centre. METHODS(More)
A patient is reported who developed the first symptoms of spinal motor neuron affection 20 years prior to his death at the age of 79. In the course of the disease dementia and spasticity of the legs occurred. The patient died of metastasizing carcinoma of the colon. The autopsy revealed amyloid angiopathy of the brain and cervical spinal cord, corresponding(More)
