We treated fifty-one cases of fracture of the shaft of the humerus with a functional method of treatment consisting of a plastic sleeve, individually molded or prefabricated. It maintained good alignment of the fragments and permitted rapid and uninterrupted osteogenesis. The early introduction of functional activity to the entire extremity appears to(More)
BACKGROUND Major depression can be regarded as a systemic neurobehavioral disorder resulting from dysfunction of the limbic-cortical networks. The cingulum bundle represents a major association fiber tract of those networks. The aim of our study was to determine the association of brain structural tissue markers of the cingulum bundle and cognitive function(More)
Mibefradil is a novel calcium antagonist that is selective for the T-type voltage-operated calcium channel rather than the L type. Because T-type calcium channels are present on rapidly proliferating cells and mediate the increase of intracellular calcium induced by some growth factors, such as platelet-derived growth factor, we hypothesized that the(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to investigate neuropsychological functions in dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT) with respect to morphological changes that were revealed by quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Twenty patients with DAT (NINCDS-ADRDA criteria) and 10 healthy age and sex matched controls were included. The(More)
The tolerability and hemodynamic and humoral effects of the structurally novel calcium antagonist Ro 40-5967 were investigated in 64 patients with hypertension. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, ascending oral doses of 50, 100, 150, or 200 mg were administered once daily for 8 days in a solution. Ro 40-5967 was well tolerated up to 150 mg, but(More)
We screened the antiischemic, hemodynamic, and inotropic effects of different dosages of the new calcium channel blocker Ro 40-5967 in 65 patients with stable effort-induced angina pectoris. In a double-blind way, patients were randomized to recieve a single oral dose of 50, 100, or 200 mg Ro 40-5967 or placebo, given as a drinking solution. Left(More)
To evaluate the prevalence of injuries of the scapholunate and lunotriquetral interosseous ligaments (SLIL, LTIL) as well as the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) in intra-articular distal radius fractures (iaDRF). Two hundred and thirty-three patients with acute iaDRF underwent MDCT arthrography. The SLIL and LTIL were described as normal, partially(More)
A 9-month-old male baby was investigated for a massive left-to-right shunt at the arterial level. On right heart catheterization a patent ductus could not be demonstrated but retrograde arterial angiography showed an aorto-pulmonary window. During corrective surgery on cardiac bypass, the left coronary artery was found to arise from the aorto-pulmonary(More)
