RATIONALE Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cpn) infection may play a role in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Few data are available comparing persistent and acute infection of this pathogen in the human respiratory tract. OBJECTIVES To study Cpn-induced innate immune responses in lung tissue from patients with COPD and control(More)

RATIONALE Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is the most common cause for bacterial exacerbations in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Recent investigations suggest the participation of the inflammasome in the pathomechanism of airway inflammation. The inflammasome is a cytosolic protein complex important for early inflammatory responses,(More)
OBJECTIVES The primary aim of the RELIEF study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two sequential intravenous (iv)/oral regimens: moxifloxacin iv/oral versus piperacillin/tazobactam (TZP) iv followed by oral amoxicillin/clavulanate (AMC). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study had a prospective, randomized, double-dummy, double-blind, multicentre design.(More)
Resection of hepatic metastases of colorectal origin has gained wide acceptance, but when patients have synchronous or metachronous pulmonary metastases, they are often considered incurable and are offered systemic therapy only. We performed a retrospective review of the patients at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who underwent resection of both(More)
BACKGROUND In contrast to laparoscopic left pancreatic resection, laparoscopic total duodenopancreatectomy is a procedure that has not been standardized until now. It is not only the complexity that limits such a procedure but also its rare indication. The following article demonstrates the technical aspects of laparoscopic pylorus- and spleen-preserving(More)
within community care. These studies have identified the cultural anthropological dimension of uncertainty avoidance (UA) as being particularly relevant in explaining why doctors in some European countries have a greater propensity to prescribe antibiotics for predominantly viral conditions, such as colds, flu, and sore throat, in the face of clear(More)
OBJECTIVES Emergency thoracic surgery in the elderly represents an extreme situation for both the surgeon and patient. The lack of an adequate patient history as well as the inability to optimize any co-morbidities, which are the result of the emergent situation, are the cause of increased morbidity and mortality. We evaluated the outcome and prognostic(More)
Desmoid tumors are non-metastatic mesenchymal tumors with an aggressive local growth. Depending on the anatomic location, morbidity varies. We report of a patient with a desmoid tumor of the right shoulder which was treated in our department by surgical excision, plastic-surgical wound closure and postoperative adjuvant radiation.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Hydro-Jet technology has long been used for cutting various materials like metal and wood in the industrial field. In the medical field, this technology has been applied successfully for selective cutting of the parenchyma of the liver. However, to our knowledge, no data exist on the use of the Hydro-Jet technique for laparoscopic(More)
