Intravenous indoprofen (400 mg), a cyclooxygenase inhibitor, was compared with intramuscular oxicodone hydrochloride (= oxicone 10 mg), a narcotic analgesic agent, in regard to efficacy and side effects in the treatment of renal colic. Oxicone was combined with papaverine (20 mg). Patients were randomized to either treatment, and the drugs were given in(More)
A randomised, prospective study was performed to compare local (LA) and general anaesthesia (GA) in carotid surgery with special emphasis on complications and the need for intra-operative shunting. Fifty-six patients were randomised to LA and 55 to GA. Eight patients in the LA group required a GA for various reasons. During the same period 14 patients were(More)
To characterize factors of importance for the occurrence of acute rejection as well as study the impact of these episodes on long-term renal survival and function, a total of 819 acute rejection episodes were studied in 951 primary cadaveric donor kidney recipients (CD) and in 396 primary living donor kidney recipients (LD). The patients were treated by(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes, determined by polymerase chain reaction with type-specific primers, were studied in 5 already HCV-infected patients receiving kidneys from HCV-infected cadaver donors. Three patients were investigated retrospectively using stored pre- and posttransplantation sera and followed 18-28 months after transplantation. Two(More)
In order to study permeability changes after local ischemia the cheek pouch of the hamster was everted for intravital microscopy. Macromolecular permeability was quantified as leakage of fluoroscein labelled dextran (Mw 70,000). Temporary ischemia with total circulatory arrest of the whole cheek pouch was obtained by a cuff mounted around the everted cheek(More)
Clinical islet transplantation is currently being explored as a treatment for persons with type 1 diabetes and hypoglycaemia unawareness. Although 'proof-of-principle' has been established in recent clinical studies, the procedure suffers from low efficacy. At the time of transplantation, the isolated islets are allowed to embolise the liver after injection(More)
The aim of this study was to describe some of the factors that might play a role in influencing attitude to xenotransplantation: first, the consideration of receiving cells and tissue from xenotransplants in relation to whole xeno-organs; secondly, the fact that there is greater uncertainty regarding the result and risk of infection associated with(More)
UNLABELLED We performed a prospective, double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled multicenter study on the efficacy and safety of rituximab as induction therapy, together with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and steroids. The primary endpoint was defined as acute rejection, graft loss, or death during the first 6 months. Secondary endpoints were(More)
In 21 male athletes (age 20 to 40 years) with longstanding unexplained groin pain, a multidisciplinary investigation was performed in order to reveal the underlying cause. These examinations included general surgery for detection of inguinal hernia and neuralgia, orthopaedic surgery for detection of adductor tenoperiostitis and symphysitis, urology for(More)
Causes of graft loss and death were studied in 1347 recipients of primary renal transplants followed for 5 years after transplantation irrespective of graft function. Immunosuppression consisted of high or medium dose CsA and prednisolone or low dose CsA and prednisolone and azathioprine. In recipients of cadaver grafts, death with a functioning transplant(More)
