BACKGROUND/AIMS Small attention is paid to other types of bone diseases then chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder in dialysis patients. The aim of our study was to assess the occurrence of osteoporosis and bone microarchitecture by trabecular bone score in this population. METHODS 59 patients (67.6 ± 13.1 years, 43 males) treated with(More)
The authors describe three cases of falsely elevated values of the tumour marker CA 125 which in medical practice is considered above all a sign of ovarian tumours. In one case CA 125 was elevated in fibrinopurulent pleuropneumonia and refractory ascites and in one instance haemorrhagic fluidothorax was involved associated with pleuritis and in one instance(More)
The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is even in contemporary clinical practice problematical. Pulmonary angiography is used in our departments very little due to its invasive character. The method of choice for diagnosis remains therefore perfusion scintigraphy of the lungs, in this country frequently without ventilation scintigraphy as it is not available(More)
Here we analyzed associations between muscles mass, total bone mineral content (BMC), lumbar spine bone density (BMD L1-L4) and serum or urine hormones in healthy peripubertal girls. Total BMC and areal BMD L1-L4, muscle mass and fat were measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Muscle force (N) was estimated by a dynamometer. Circulating(More)
The authors discuss lateral differences between heel bones during ultrasonic bone densitometry using the apparatus Achilles Lunar. While the mean values for the whole group are statistically insignificant (162 patients) in different parameters (SOS, BUA, stiffness) in one quarter of the patients the differences between the two extremities are greater than(More)
