AIMS The aim of the present study was to evaluate the levels of platelet interaction with circulating CD34+ cells in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) and acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and to study the functional consequence of coaggregates formation in vitro and in vivo. METHODS AND RESULTS Platelet binding to circulating progenitor cells was(More)
INTRODUCTION V.A.C.(®) GranuFoam™ therapy is regularly used in the surgical therapy of infected wounds and soft tissue injuries. Silver nanoparticles can destroy bacterial cell walls and inhibit enzymes for cell replication. Silver dressings are therefore successfully used for many indications in wound therapy. In this study, we investigated the(More)
OBJECTIVE To show the possible effect of left- and right-side total hip arthroplasty (THA) on the ability to perform an emergency stop when driving a car. DESIGN Inception cohort. SETTING A driving simulator using an actual car cabin, specifically developed for the experiment, was used for testing driving ability. PARTICIPANTS Patients (N=40; 20(More)
Cerebrovascular dysfunction is a common finding in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and may contribute to cognitive decline. Abundant evidence suggests that vascular and neuronal repair mechanisms are mediated by circulating progenitor cells in vivo. Whether CD34+ and, specifically, CD34+/CD133+ progenitor cells are involved in the pathophysiology of(More)
PURPOSE Two types of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) are described as reasons for the early development of osteoarthritis of the hip. Cam impingement develops from contact between an abnormal head-neck junction and the acetabular rim. Pincer impingement is characterized by local or general overcoverage of the femoral head by the acetabular rim. Both(More)
BACKGROUND During the last years, terms like acetabular retroversion, excessive overcoverage, and abnormal head-neck-junction with the so called "pistol-grip-deformity" has been added to the classical description of hip dysplasia. These anatomical changes could lead to a femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Both kinds of FAI has been indentified as a main(More)
Extremity soft tissue and bone sarcomas represent a rare group of bone and connective tissue cancers. In literature, there is little information about psycho-emotional status and impact on quality of life after the diagnosis and treatment of this kind of tumors. The aim of this survey was to define the profile of the patients at risk and their need for(More)
