The concurrent effects of increasing atmospheric CO, concentration, climate variability, and cropland establishment and abandonment on terrestrial carbon storage between 1920 and 1992 were assessed using a standard simulat~on protocol with four process-based terrestrial biosphere models. Over the long-term (1920-1992), the simulations yielded a tlme history(More)
Die operative Stabilisierung der distalen Radiusfraktur ist aufgrund dorsaler Trümmerzonen und osteoporotischer Knochenqualität häufig mit dem Problem des sekundären Korrekturverlustes behaftet. Die dorsale Plattenosteosynthese erlaubt zwar eine gute Abstützung, allerdings ist die Orientierung hinsichtlich der Reposition schwierig und nicht selten eine(More)
Internal fixation of distal radius fractures often shows the problem of secondary dislocation due to dorsal comminution and osteoporosis. Although dorsal plating systems provide good stabilization, the intraoperative control of reduction is difficult in the comminuted area with high incidence for the need of cancellous bone graft. Occurrence of extensor(More)
The purpose of this study was to track fluorophore-labeled, tumor-targeted natural killer (NK) cells to human prostate cancer xenografts with optical imaging (OI). NK-92-scFv(MOC31)-zeta cells targeted to the epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) antigen on prostate cancer cells and nontargeted NK-92 parental cells were labeled with the near-infrared(More)
The indication and treatment of malunited fractures of the distal radius in the growing skeleton differ from those for adults. The literature results are scarce. In this study we examined the results of surgical correction following fractures of the distal radius in infants. Seven infant patients with malaligned fractures of the distal radius that(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively compare an indocyanine green (ICG)-enhanced optical imaging system with contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the detection of synovitis in the hands of patients with rheumatologic disorders. METHODS Forty-five patients (30 women [67%], mean ± SD age 52.6 ± 13.4 years) in whom there was a clinical suspicion of(More)
OBJECTIVE Prosthetic joint replacement to reduce pain and maintain function of the proximal interphalangeal joint. INDICATIONS Symptomatic arthritis of the proximal interphalangeal joint with preservation of the collateral ligaments, sufficient bone support, and intact or at least reconstructable extensor tendons. CONTRAINDICATIONS Lack of stability, e.(More)
OBJECTIVE There are limitations when using spin-echo MR imaging to evaluate congenital heart disease (CHD). These include limited ability to detect small shunts, long acquisition times, in-plane or slow flow signal and limited ability to represent complicated three-dimensional (3D) anatomy. However, MR angiography can image flow direction and disturbances,(More)
Trotz entscheidender Erkenntnisse über Biomechanik und Funktion des Handgelenks der letzten Jahre sieht sich der traumatologisch tätige Arzt nach wie vor mit einer Vielzahl posttraumatischer Spätschäden an diesem Gelenk konfrontiert. Neben der früher führenden Rettungsoperation, der Totalarthrodese des Handgelenks, stehen heute differenziertere(More)
Injuries of the wrist are difficult to diagnose because of the complex and narrow anatomic structures. Based on precise clinical examination, X-rays, CT, and MRI are valuable additional tools that can be used. If a fracture is suspected a CT scan is preferable. In the case of a suspected soft tissue or ligamentous injury and non-vital fragments or necrosis(More)
