PURPOSE To demonstrate the possibility of percutaneous embolization of a type II endoleak guided by computed tomographic (CT) fluoroscopy. CASE REPORT A type II endoleak maintained by a hypertrophic fourth lumbar artery failed to occlude spontaneously 7 months after stent-graft deployment for endovascular repair of an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm.(More)
Chromatin in the interphase nucleus moves in a constrained random walk. Despite extensive study, the molecular causes of such movement and its impact on DNA-based reactions are unclear. Using high-precision live fluorescence microscopy in budding yeast, we quantified the movement of tagged chromosomal loci to which transcriptional activators or nucleosome(More)
Persistent DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are recruited to the nuclear periphery in budding yeast. Both the Nup84 pore subcomplex and Mps3, an inner nuclear membrane (INM) SUN domain protein, have been implicated in DSB binding. It was unclear what, if anything, distinguishes the two potential sites of repair. Here, we characterize and distinguish the two(More)
The impact of depressed neonatal cerebral oxidative phosphorylation for diagnosing the severity of perinatal asphyxia was estimated by correlating the concentrations of phosphocreatine (PCr) and ATP as determined by magnetic resonance spectroscopy with the degree of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) in 23 asphyxiated term neonates. Ten healthy(More)
The present study was performed to analyse the pharmacokinetics of levofloxacin during continuous veno-venous haemofiltration (CVVH) with a high-flux polyamide membrane. Twelve patients received 500 mg levofloxacin intravenously. The mean levofloxacin concentration peak was 1.9 +/- 1.0 mg/L. The elimination half-life, haemofiltration clearance and total(More)
BACKGROUND Spontaneous whole lung torsion is an absolut rarity and most cases occur after previous surgery. CASE PRESENTATION We present the case of a spontaneous whole-lung torsion in a 82-year old man. The patient was referred to our thoracic surgery department from the emergency department of a referring hospital with rapidly progressive dyspnea.(More)
OBJECTIVE In recent years, it has become more common to complement the objective assessment of symptoms with an assessment of individual needs patterns that are created by the individual pattern of symptoms. However, little is known on needs patterns in individuals with subjective cognitive impairment, mild cognitive impairment and dementia. Thus, on the(More)
The 7th annual meeting of the memory clinics of Germany, Switzerland and Austria in March 2002 in Göttingen, Germany was an optimal opportunity to make an inventory about the state of the art in diagnostic and therapy of dementia and mild cognitive impairment in German-speaking memory clinics. Several problems were discussed including difficulties in 1)(More)
