Manipulating joint range of motion during squat training may have differential effects on adaptations to strength training with implications for sports and rehabilitation. Consequently, the purpose of this study was to compare the effects of squat training with a short vs. a long range of motion. Male students (n = 17) were randomly assigned to 12 weeks of(More)
Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) (1,000 mg daily per os) yielded (mainly subjective) remissions in 8 of 21 patients with hormone-resistant cancer of the prostate. In 24 comparable patients, treated with prednisolone (20 mg daily per os) 3 remissions were observed, indicating a slight superiority of high-dose MPA considering the response rate. The response(More)
BACKGROUND Bacterial translocation (BT) with immune activation may lead to hemodynamical alterations and poor outcomes in patients with cirrhosis. AIMS We investigated bacterial DNA (bDNA), a marker of BT, and its relation to portal pressure and markers of inflammation in the portal and hepatic veins in patients with cirrhosis undergoing TIPS insertion.(More)
In a prospective study we have included the specific red cell adherence (SRCA) test for the identification of blood group isoantigens in the investigation of patients with bladder tumor. The preliminary results, relating the SRCA test to grade and stage in 50 patients are presented. None of the SRCA-positive tumors were of high-grade malignancy (WHO III),(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrointestinal dysmotility may be involved in the development of bacterial translocation and infection in patients with liver cirrhosis. The aim of the present study was to describe gastric, small intestinal and colorectal motility and transit in patients with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension using a magnet-based Motility Tracking System(More)
BACKGROUND Temporary vascular in- and outflow occlusion is an effective technique for bleeding control during liver resection. However, occlusion can result in ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury to the liver. The aim of this study in a porcine model was to investigate the effect of in- and outflow occlusion of part of the liver on the metabolism of the(More)
Pneumatosis coli (PC) is a rare condition which may be difficult to diagnose. We report a case of PC in a 46-year-old woman, where colonoscopy and biopsies showed signs of widespread polyposis. She had a prophylactic colectomy. Pathologic examination of the specimen showed multiple air-filled cysts in the colonic wall. By analysis of a preoperative(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Intestinal bacterial translocation is involved in activation of liver macrophages in cirrhotic patients. Macrophages play a key role in liver inflammation and are involved in the pathogenesis of cirrhosis and complications. Bacterial translocation may be determined by presence of bacterial DNA and macrophage activation, by the soluble(More)
Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease defined by congestive hepatopathy with obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow tract. Classical symptoms and signs include ascites, hepatomegaly, abdominal pain and various degrees of liver dysfunction. BCS is predominantly caused by thrombosis, malformations and venous compression. We present a case, in which(More)
