Quantitative information about the innervation is essential to analyze the structure-function relationships of organs. So far, there has been no unbiased stereological tool for this purpose. This study presents a new unbiased and efficient method to quantify the total length of axons in a given reference volume, illustrated on the left ventricle of the(More)
We report on the efficacy and toxicity of a sequential high-dose therapy with peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) support in 85 patients with high-risk stage II/III breast cancer. There were 71 patients with more than nine tumour-positive axillary lymph nodes. An induction therapy of two cycles of ifosfamide (total dose, 7.5 g m(-2)) and epirubicin (120 mg(More)
A case of extraventricular neurocytoma with spontaneous intratumoral hemorrhage is reported. A 47-year-old man presented with sudden left-sided hemiparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a right parietal subcortical mass with intratumoral hemorrhagic transformation and without contact to the ventricular system. After complete microsurgical removal,(More)
Herein, we report the case of a 47-year-old man clinically presenting a slow progressive loss of lower extremity functions within 8 weeks followed by an acute neurogenic bladder dysfunction. The patient exhibited high-grade paralysis of both legs with reduced sensation from dermatome Th11 downwards as well as marked spasticity of the lower extremity.(More)
