OBJECTIVE To determine whether circular plastic wound edge protectors (CWEPs) significantly reduce the rate of surgical site infections (SSIs) in comparison to standard surgical towels in patients undergoing laparotomy. BACKGROUND SSIs cause substantial morbidity, prolonged hospitalization, and costs and remain one of the most frequent surgical(More)
Introduction: The standard procedure in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) includes cervical exploration and identification of all four enlarged parathyroid glands. New localization techniques, i. e., ultrasonography associated with color duplex sonography, 99 mTc-sestamibi scintigraphy and the possibility of intraoperative parathormone (iPTH)(More)
Zweck dieser Studie war die Untersuchung prognostischer Faktoren der chirurgischen Therapie beim Magenkarzinom in einer Schwerpunktklinik. Besonderer Fokus wurde hierbei auf die Morbiditäts- und Mortalitätsrate gelegt. Zusätzlich sollten die Parameter im zeitlichen Verlauf beobachtet werden. In der Zeit vom Januar 2005 bis August 2011 wurden in der(More)
One of the most common complications after liver transplantation is primary graft dysfunction which results from severe deterioration of the microcirculation. The data obtained from our experimental studies indicate that N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is able to reduce the severity of ischemia/reperfusion injury and improves postoperative graft function after liver(More)

INTRODUCTION Neuroendocrine tumors span a rather heterogenic group of tumors, which differ in malignant potential. Very few is known about the tumorigenesis of neuroendocrine tumors. Telomeres seem to stabilize chromosomes and prevent DNA degradation and provide a signal of cellular senescence. During each cell cycle of replication, telomeres are(More)
The DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (DdRP) is an essential enzyme for transcription of molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV), a member of the family Poxviridae which replicates in the cytoplasm of the infected cell. Using PCR technology and oligonucleotide primers, corresponding to two conserved domains (RQP[T/S]LH and NADFDGDE) of known largest subunits of(More)
Living-related liver transplantation is a successful clinical approach to overcome organ shortage in hepatic transplantation. Possible advantages for the recipient of a living-donor transplant are a much shorter waiting period until transplantation and an almost elective time of operation which results in a decreased operative risk. Furthermore graft(More)
Nach Erstbeschreibung einer offenen Appendektomie über einen lateralen Wechselschnitt im rechten Unterbauch, im Jahr 1894 durch McBurney galt dieser Eingriff fast 100 Jahre lang als Standardeingriff zur Behandlung der Appendizitis. 1983 ermöglichte der Gynäkologe Semm mit der Einführung der laparoskopischen Appendektomie eine neue Möglichkeit der operativen(More)
