The simultaneous bilateral rupture of the quadriceps tendon is a rare injury; only occasional reports exist about the bilateral simultaneous rupture of the patellar tendon. Degenerative changes of the tendon due to drugs or diseases lead to the rupture. We describe two cases of simultaneous rupture of the patellar and contralateral quadriceps tendons; only(More)
Objectives. Malignant tumor invasion in the inferior vena cava (IVC) has for a long time been the limiting factor in the resection of retroperitoneal tumors. The clinical outcome in these patients depends on vascular surgical techniques, the central role of which is played by IVC reconstruction. Methods. Within the last 7 years, 9,085 vascular(More)
Die nekrotisierende Fasziitis (NF) ist eine Weichteilinfektion mit sehr hoher Letalität. Diese ist nur durch eine frühzeitige Diagnose und radikale operative Therapie zu senken. Eine Verzögerung der Diagnose durch nicht zielführende bildgebende oder laborchemische Verfahren kann zum letalen „streptococcal toxic shock syndrome“ führen. Auch eine inadäquate(More)
Gefäßverletzungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen erfordern besonderes technisches Können hinsichtlich der Versorgung kleiner Gefäße, die zum Spasmus neigen. In 20 Jahren wurden 26 Patienten mit einem mittleren Alter von 12 Jahren behandelt. 16 hatten perforierende Verletzungen erlitten, 8 davon waren iatrogen entstanden und 10 infolge stumpfer(More)
Rupture of the anterior tibial tendon is a very rare injury in sports. The rupture is based on degeneration of the tendon and caused by a forced plantarflexion. Main symptoms of this often "missed injury" are impossibility of dorsal extension of the foot and a palpable gap. The diagnosis can be confirmed by sonography or MRI. A complete healing can only be(More)
Territorial songs of 4 Asian Willow Tit subspecies namelyParus montanus kamtschatkensis, P. m. songarus, P. m. affinis andP. m. stoetzneri and in addition those of a southern outpost ofP. m. baicalensis are dealt with. These far-eastern subspecies use song types of their own, but nearly identical types may used by different geographical representatives,(More)
Angiomyolipomas are hamartomas that may be found sporadically or associated with tuberous sclerosis (M. Bourneville-Pringle). Clinically, this long-term asymptomatic tumor becomes evident as an acute retroperitoneal hemorrhage or by symptoms of a flank mass. Due to the high percentage of fat components in this tumor type, computed tomography is far superior(More)
Aneurysms of the popliteal vein usually occur within the context of angiodysplastic syndromes. The first symptom of an isolated aneurysm may be pulmonary embolism. Recurrent pulmonary embolism without thrombophilia requires more specific diagnostics. The rate of recurrent pulmonary embolism is high when no therapy is applied. Surgical treatment results in(More)
We rarely see trauma patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism. We report about a case of a 68-year-old African female with a pertrochanteric femur fracture after a falling accident. As a secondary result we noted a Looser zone (pseudofracture) in the fractured femur. Extended diagnostic work-up including determination of vitamin D metabolites indicated(More)
