Simple end-to-end reconstruction of benign bile duct stenosis is possible only in a few cases. To preserve the function of papilla of Vater as the best anticholangitis therapy, we developed a method of bile duct expansion by a pedunculated jejunal patch-graft in animal experiments. After these successful experiments three patients with iatrogenic short bile(More)

A pedicled autologous jejunum transplant and a free bovine collagen prosthesis were tried for the treatment of short, benign stenoses of the bile duct in animal experiments. In both cases at follow-up periods of 6--18 months an unrestricted flow of bile was recorded in the plastically dilated bile duct macroscopically, radiologically and by the chemical(More)
The use of a modified bovine collagen graft as a low-pressure conduit was investigated by implantation into the iliocaval system of dogs. In the 210 day observation period, a patency rate of 87.5% was achieved. Nearly all graft failures occured within the first 14 days following implantation; failure after that time did not seem to be dependent upon length(More)
Dog kidneys were subjected to hypothermic non-pulsatile perfusion up to 72-hours and then transplanted. Human albumin was used as perfusion medium. Post-transplant function of the kidneys was measured by PAH- and inulin-clearances and by following the course of serum creatinine. Successful preservation up to 72-hours was possible.

There is an indication for operation in clinical stage 11 and cases of subclavian steal syndrome. Endarterectomy by mid-sternotomy is the operation of choice for obliteration of the innominate artery. The mortality rate is 6%. Occlusion of the left proximal subclavian artery can be treated by transthoracic endarterectomy or extrathoracic bypass procedure.(More)
