Three immunochemically and electrophoretically distinct lipoproteins, LP-A, LP-B, and LP-X,(1) were isolated from the low density lipoprotein fraction (1.006-1.063 g/ml) in plasma from patients with biliary obstruction by a separation procedure which combines ultracentrifugation, heparin precipitation, and ethanol fractionation. This method, here described,(More)
The plasma low density lipoproteins (LDL) in biliary obstruction are characterized almost exclusively by the presence of the immunochemically distinct lipoprotein families, lipoprotein B (LP-B) and lipoprotein X (LP-X). It is suggested that LP-X, with its uniquely high content of unesterified cholesterol and phospholipid, is primarily responsible for the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of balloon-expandable metallic stents in the treatment of children with tracheomalacia and bronchomalacia in whom conventional therapy has failed. DESIGN Retrospective case series. SETTING Tertiary pediatric otolaryngology and cardiothoracic surgery referral center. PATIENTS Six patients were identified as having(More)
Der diagnostische Wert einer Analyse der Plasmalipoproteine bei Hyperlipoproteinämien wird betont. Die modernen Klassifizierungsmöglichkeiten der Plasmalipoproteine werden dargestellt. Es hat sich gezeigt, daß hierbei dem Proteinanteil der Plasmalipoproteine, dem sog. Apo-Lipoprotein, eine wachsende Bedeutung zukommt. So ist es gelungen, aus dem Plasma von(More)
