OBJECTIVE To compare the incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE) and additional pathologic findings (APF) detected by computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) according to different age-groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS 1353 consecutive CTPA cases for suspected PE were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were divided into seven age groups: ≤29, 30-39,(More)
PURPOSE Renal development regulates prenatal lung growth by maintaining fetal urine output and liquor volume. However, shared signaling pathways underpinning renal and lung morphogenesis indicate that lung hypoplasia in the presence of renal dysgenesis may not result from oligohydramnios alone. We used a transgenic model of renal agenesis/anuria to test(More)
In three different field studies running loads of 2 X 200 m and 400 m, 3 X 1000 m and 3000 m, and finally 10,000 m were performed by respective groups of sprinters, middle-, and long-distance runners. We investigated the effects of exercise on the sympathoadrenal system by determining catecholamine (CA) concentrations in the venous blood and urine [free(More)
To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of two different etoposide (VP-16) dosages (30 or 45 mg/kg) in combination with busulfan/cyclophosphamide as conditioning therapy followed by stem cell transplantation in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), 90 patients with AML received either 30 mg/kg (n = 60) or 45 mg/kg (n = 30) etoposide in combination with busulfan (16(More)
The pharmacokinetics of doxorubicin (DOX), iodo-doxorubicin (I-DOX) and their metabolites in plasma has been examined in five patients each receiving 50 mg/m2 of both anthracyclines as a bolus injection. Terminal half-life, mean residence time (MRT), peak plasma concentration Cmax, and area under the curve (AUC) appeared smaller for I-DOX, whereas its(More)
25 patients, mostly pretreated, received 55 courses of iododoxorubicin as a single intravenous bolus every 2 weeks. The starting dose was 2 mg/m2 with seven steps to reach the dose-limiting toxicity level. 3 patients treated with 90 mg/m2 had WHO grade 4 myelotoxicity; 2 of these patients had not had cytostatic chemotherapy. 3 of 7 patients treated with 75(More)
A male infant is reported with congenital dyskeratosis and pancytopenia Zinsser-Engman-Cole. The bone marrow pathology showed similarities to Fanconi anaemia. Ophthalmological complications were vitreous haemorrhage, haemorrhagic cataracta complicata and glaucoma. Spontaneous and diepoxybutane-induced chromosomal fragility was within the range of normal(More)
Small, round photocoagulator lesions of 3–6 ° (0.6–1.2 mm) diameter were placed nasally on the retina of adult cats. Histological controls proved the complete destruction of all retinal layers within the lesions. Changes in lesion size by shrinkage of the retinal scar did not exceed 0.1 mm or 0.5 °. At different times after photocoagulation, single cells(More)
This study was set up to discover how a subendocardial application of ethanol administered via a catheter would affect an animal model. A 7 F bipolar catheter with a lumen, through which a 2 mm needle was inserted, was placed in the left ventricle of 11 pigs. Altogether, 33 subendocardial injections into the left ventricular myocardium were performed under(More)
