OBJECTIVES The aim of this research was to identify the diagnostic performance of gadolinium-enhanced and T2-weighted cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in suspected acute myocarditis. BACKGROUND Acute myocarditis is difficult to diagnose; CMR provides various means to visualize myocardial inflammatory changes. A CMR approach with clear-cut(More)
We investigated the preventive effects of long-term treatment with the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril on myocardial left ventricular hypertrophy and capillary length density in spontaneously hypertensive rats. Rats were treated in utero and subsequently up to 20 weeks of age with a high dose (1 mg/kg per day) or with a low dose (0.01 mg/kg(More)
BACKGROUND To study the vascularization in the diseased bowel wall by power Doppler sonography in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS The diseased bowel wall was investigated in 99 patients with inflammatory bowel disease (60 patients with Crohn's disease and 39 patients with ulcerative colitis) either with active disease or in(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence from animal studies that lactose has a beneficial effect on intestinal calcium absorption. However, data concerning the effect of lactose on calcium absorption in lactose-tolerant adults are inconclusive. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to investigate the effect of lactose on calcium bioavailability in humans by the use of a(More)
Der Hallux valgus stellt eine kombinierte Deformität mit Fehlstellung der Großzehe im Zehengrundgelenk und Spreizung des Mittelfußes durch Metatarsus-primus-varus-Bildung dar. Er lässt sich anhand des Zustandes im Großzehengrund- und Tarsometatarsal-I-Gelenk (TMT-I-Gelenk), des Ausmaßes und der Kongruenz bzw. Inkongruenz der Fehlstellung, der Beweglichkeit(More)
The effects of exercise training on hemodynamic and metabolic parameters as well as on responses to oxidative stress in aged individuals are controversial. The aim of the present study was to investigate changes in heart hate, mean arterial pressure, vasoreactivity, and plasma levels of insulin and glucose in male aged Wistar rats submitted to exercise(More)
Im vergangenen Jahr wurden 149 Kolleginnen und Kollegen neu aufgenommen. Den deutlichsten Mitgliederzuwachs konnte der Landesverband SchleswigHolstein für sich verbuchen. 22 neue BDR-Mitglieder in nur 12 Monaten erweiterten den Mitgliederkreis um 50 %. Aber auch Thüringen verzeichnete mit 11 neu dazu gewonnenen Kolleginnen und Kollegen einen 30-prozentigen(More)
Adriamycin cardiotoxicity is associated with oxidative stress in the presence of globally depressed cardiac function. It is unknown if there is a similar profile with early diastolic changes and how it relates to baroreflex control of circulation. In this study, we evaluated baroreflex control of circulation in adriamycin-treated Wistar rats compared with(More)

17 cases of malacoplakia in association with an adenocarcinoma of the colon or rectum are known. In this report we describe a new case of this rare combination. An 83-year-old comatose female patient was admitted in an emergency situation because of an incipient ileus. A carcinoma had been known for months, but the patient had previously rejected any(More)
