OBJECTIVE The impact of body image dissatisfaction on quality of life after severe burn injury was investigated after controlling for other determinants of outcome (i.e., injury, distress, and preburn quality of life). METHODS The postburn quality of life (2-months postdischarge) of groups with and without body image dissatisfaction was studied after(More)
Background: Soft tissue sarcomas comprise less than 1% of all solid malignancies. The presentation and behavior of these tumors differs depending on location and histological characteristics. Standard therapy consists of complete surgical resection in combination with adjuvant radiotherapy. The role of chemotherapy is not clearly defined and is largely(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the aptitude of TRAIL gene expression for inducing apoptosis in co-cultivated T-cells. This should allow preparing a strategy for the development of a durable, allogenic skin substitute based on the induction of an immune-privileged transplant. In order to counteract the significant potential of rejection(More)
A model for ns dry laser cleaning that treats the substrate and particle expansion on a unified basis is suggested. Formulas for the time-dependent thermal expansion of the substrate, valid for temperature-dependent parameters are derived. Van der Waals adhesion, the elasticity of the substrate and particle, as well as particle inertia is taken into account(More)
We have investigated the removal of small spherical particles from polymer surfaces by means of 193-nm ArF and 248-nm KrF laser light. Polystyrene (PS) particles with diameters in the range of 110 nm to 1700 nm and silica particles (SiO 2) with sizes of 400 nm and 800 nm are successfully removed from two different substrates, polyimide (PI) and(More)
Introduction. Pirogow's amputation at the ankle presents a valuable alternative to lower leg amputation for patients with the corresponding indications. Although this method offers the ability to stay mobile without the use of a prosthesis, it is rarely performed. This paper proposes a modification regarding the operation method of the Pirogow amputation.(More)
OBJECTIVE Impaired microcirculation is one of the most important factors in delayed wound healing. The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of chemical and surgical interruption of sympathetic nerve fibers and α- and β-receptors blockers on muscular microcirculation. METHODS The experiment was performed on a standardized cremaster muscle(More)
OBJECTIVE The transpalpebral resection of the corrugator and depressor supercilii muscles is a new treatment option for migraine headaches. Hyperactive contractility of these muscles can provoke the peripheral compression of the supratrochlear nerve and induce a neurogenic inflammation triggering the symptoms of migraine. In order to gather detailed(More)
