Twelve patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and having swollen knees were treated with 1.1 g/day of sodium naproxen administered in one dose, daily for 5 days. The 72-h wash-out period was verified by the absence of any nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug using a HPLC screening. Blood and synovial fluid samples were drawn just before treatment and(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the value of a Reentry-Catheter for true lumen access after subintimal revascularization of chronic iliac artery occlusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subintimal revascularization was performed in 5 patients (mean age: 67 ± 12 years; female: 3, male: 2) with total iliac artery occlusion (TASC B to D), but without gaining access to the(More)
Two groups of healthy male subjects one with low (mean 1.03 mmol/l), and the other with normal (mean 1.80 mmol/l), concentrations of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in plasma were investigated. A series of in vitro platelet function tests were performed in order to investigate a possible connection between low HDL concentration, which has been(More)
In a randomized double-blind, parallel group study, the effects of piretanide on serum electrolytes and on symptoms of congestive heart failure were compared with those of the combination piretanide plus triamterene in out-patients with mild to severe congestive heart failure. A total of 60 patients entered the study; 13 patients were excluded from the(More)
To investigate the 3-year outcome of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and heavily calcified stenotic lesions of the superficial femoral artery after directional atherectomy. Fifty-three patients (mean age 67 ± 10 years; 18 females, 35 males, TASC B and C, mean lesion length 7.9 ± 3.5 cm) with PAD (Rutherford 2–6) were enrolled into this(More)
Noradrenalin was given as an intravenous infusion in a dosage of 0.1 mu-g/kg/h over a period of 30 minutes to 5 healthy male subjects. Blood samples were collected before, at the end of and 24 hours after the infusion. A significant increase in the number of circulating platelets and a marked increase of plasma FFA, reflecting an increase of all the main(More)
Human blood platelets were labeled with 51Cr and whole blood was reconstituted. The endothelium of rabbit abdominal aorta was removed with a balloon catheter and the inverted aorta was placed on a Plexiglas rod in a perfusion chamber. The reconstituted blood was perfused through the chamber of 10 min. Radioactivity of the aorta was measured and found to be(More)
Platelets from patients with acute myocardial infarction were labeled with 51Cr and reconstituted whole blood. The endothelium of rabbit aorta was removed, and segments of the inverted aorta placed on a Plexiglas rod in a perfusion chamber, and the deposition of platelets on the aorta was calculated by radioactivity measurement. In all 8 patients the(More)
