Characteristic radiographic changes were joint space loss, prominent osteophytes, and cystic metacarpal heads most prominent in the second and third metacarpophalangeal joints. In 3 of 4 patients, joint biopsy specimens showed subsynovial fibrosis and villous(More)
The Influence of glucocorticoid administration exerts on bone volume in rats at different months of age. P-TUE-41 Vitamin K analogues phytonadione (K1) and menatetrenone (K2) promote the differentiation of primary human osteoblasts Welldon, K. P-TUE-84 Hypovitaminosis D and hyperparathyroidism counteract higher bone mineral density in obese women with(More)
INTRODUCTION Wire guided localisation (WGL) is the standard localisation technique for impalpable breast lesions. Radio-guided occult lesion localisation (ROLL) has been proposed as an alternative. We have been performing ROLL for therapeutic wide local excisions (WLE) and diagnostic excision biopsies (DEB) for the last 15 years. We present the largest(More)
