BACKGROUND Metabolome analysis with GC/MS has meanwhile been established as one of the "omics" techniques. Compound identification is done by comparison of the MS data with compound libraries. Mass spectral libraries in the field of metabolomics ought to connect the relevant mass traces of the metabolites to other relevant data, e.g. formulas, chemical(More)
BACKGROUND The choice of an optimal cannulation site for aortic repair in patients with Stanford A acute aortic dissection remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the early results and long-term outcomes of axillar and direct aortic cannulation. METHODS A total of 235 consecutive patients who underwent surgical aortic repair with the(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the performance of a computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm in low-dose and full-dose multidetector-row CT (MDCT) of the thorax and its impact on radiologists' performance. Chest CT examinations of 77 patients were evaluated retrospectively for pulmonary nodules. All patients had undergone a 16-slice MDCT chest(More)
BACKGROUND The amount of available biological information is rapidly increasing and the focus of biological research has moved from single components to networks and even larger projects aiming at the analysis, modelling and simulation of biological networks as well as large scale comparison of cellular properties. It is therefore essential that biological(More)
OBJECTIVES Previous research suggests that female gender is associated with increased mortality rates after surgery for Stanford A acute aortic dissection (AAD). However, women with AAD usually present with different clinical symptoms that may bias outcomes. Moreover, there is a lack of long-term results regarding overall mortality and freedom from major(More)
