BACKGROUND Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and MRI fusion targeted biopsy (FTB) detect significant prostate cancer (sPCa) more accurately than conventional biopsies alone. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the detection accuracy of mpMRI and FTB on radical prostatectomy (RP) specimen. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS From a cohort of 755 men who(More)
BACKGROUND The primary objective of this study was to assess the interobserver and intraobserver agreement on ligamentous injuries on conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in acute simple elbow dislocation. The secondary objectives were to determine the interobserver agreement on the assessment of joint congruity, joint effusion, loose bodies and(More)
Kidney disease is a risk factor for cerebral microangiopathy and spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). We aimed to determine the association of renal dysfunction (RD) with MRI correlates of different patterns of cerebral microangiopathies including cerebral microbleeds (CMB) and white matter lesions (WML) in patients with ICH. In a prospectively(More)
In clinical trials, the primary efficacy endpoint often corresponds to a so-called "composite endpoint". Composite endpoints combine several events of interest within a single outcome variable. Thereby it is intended to enlarge the expected effect size and thereby increase the power of the study. However, composite endpoints also come along with serious(More)
BACKGROUND Prothrombin complex concentrates (PCCs) are frequently used to reverse the effect of vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) in patients with non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, information on the rate of thromboembolic events (TEs) and allergic events after PCC therapy in VKA-ICH patients is limited. METHODS Consecutive VKA-ICH(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiology trials often consider composite endpoints as primary efficacy outcomes thereby combining several time-to-event variables in a single time-to-first-event measure. The main motivation to use a composite endpoint is to increase the number of expected events thereby reducing the required sample size. However, interpretation may be(More)
BACKGROUND In order to match the challenges of quickly recognizing and treating any life-threatening injuries, the ABCDE principles were established for the assessment and treatment of trauma patients. The high priority of spine protection is emphasized by the fact that immobilization of the cervical spine is performed at the very first step in the ABCDE(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To determine the rate of peri-interventional silent brain infarcts after left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). METHODS In this prospective, uncontrolled single-center pilot study, consecutive patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing LAAO between July 2013 and January 2016 were included. The Amplatzer Cardiac Plug, WATCHMAN or(More)
OBJECTIVES Preexisting cognitive impairment is a predictor of cognitive decline after ischemic stroke, but evidence in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is limited. We aimed to determine the prevalence of premorbid cognitive impairment in patients with ICH. MATERIALS AND METHODS We included patients with acute ICH. Pre-ICH cognitive impairment was determined(More)
Medical images are essential in modern traumatology and orthopedic surgery. Access to images is often cumbersome due to a limited number of workstations. Moreover, due to the tremendous increase of data, the time to review or to communicate images has also become limited. One approach to overcome these problems is to make use of modern mobile devices, like(More)
