The purpose of this study was to compare moving-table three-dimensional contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE MRA), using 1.0-mol gadobutrol, with intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (i.a. DSA) for evaluation of pelvic and peripheral arteries in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease. A total of 203 patients were(More)
Abstract Objective. A meta-analysis was carried out of clinical trials published between 1987 and 2001 in respect of the clinical pharmacology and safety as well as the diagnostic efficacy of gadolinium-DTPA (Gd-DTPA) for direct intra-articular injection before MRI examination. Design. Scientific papers (clinical, postmortem and experimental studies) and(More)
We report on a 5-year-old girl who suddenly collapsed and died while dancing at a family party. Histological examination of the heart including the cardiac conduction system revealed lymphocytic infiltrations of the sinu-atrial node and perivascular infiltration in the atrio-ventricular region. Additionally, foci of mononuclear infiltrates were observed in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the pharmacokinetics and tolerability of iopromide 240 mg iodine/mL after intrathecal administration. METHODS Eleven patients with an indication for lumbar myelography received 10 mL iopromide 240 in an open, prospective, single-center study. All patients were followed 72 hours after the procedure and remained in the hospital. Urine(More)
The 4977bp deletion of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is known to accumulate with increasing age in post mitotic tissues. Recently, studies came out detecting this specific alteration also in fast replicating cells, e.g. in blood or skin tissue, often in correlation to specific diseases or -- specifically in skin -- external stressors such as UV radiation.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of iopromide 240 mgI/ml in comparison with iohexol 240 mgI/ml in myelography. A total of 421 patients in seven centers and four countries received an average of 11.9 ml of either iopromide 240 (278 patients) or iohexol 240 (143 patients) for X-ray and/or CT myelography in a randomized (2:1),(More)
Our objectives were to evaluate the safety of intravenous 1.0-m gadobutrol injections in patients with an indication for contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE MRA) of supra-aortal, pelvic, or peripheral arteries by examining and assessing adverse events, laboratory values, vital signs and ECG findings for clinical significance.
