PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of navigation-guided radiofrequency kyphoplasty for sacroplasty in patients with sacral insufficiency fractures. METHODS In this single-center retrospective observational study, four consecutive patients with sacral insufficiency fractures were treated with navigation-guided radiofrequency kyphoplasty for(More)
As hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in renal transplant recipients is associated with a high incidence of progressive liver disease it may be inadvisable to transplant hemodialysis patients with hepatitis B antigenemia. To determine the natural history of HBV disease in hemodialysis patients, all 49 patients on hemodialysis treatment for at least 1 year,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of percutaneous vesselplasty in pathological vertebral fractures of the thoracolumbar spine in selected tumor patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven pathological vertebral fractures in nine patients were treated with vesselplasty (Vessel-X®, MAXXSPINE). Nine of eleven vertebras (81.8 %) had major posterior(More)
We have earlier reported that γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) disrupts the acquisition of spatial learning and memory in adolescent rats. GHB is known to interact with several neurotransmitter systems that have been implicated in cognitive functioning. The N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NR) -type of glutamate receptor is considered to be an important target for(More)
Serum components inhibit DNA polymerase, thereby obviating direct detection of serum viral DNA sequences by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This has necessitated extraction of nucleic acid from sera before performing PCR and has resulted in loss of sensitivity. By adsorbing virus to a solid surface (microcentrifuge tubes or antibody coated(More)
Clinical Case A 14-year-old boy presented with a single, secondarily generalized, tonic-clonic seizure.
