PURPOSE To evaluate the outcome after different types of revision operations for blade 'cut-out' and 'cut-through' after fixation of trochanteric fractures with proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) or a trochanter fixation nail (TFN). METHODS Twenty hospitals participated in this multicentre study. A total of 4109 patients were retrospectively(More)
Background: In recent studies, the role of cytokines in traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been identified and the intrathecal origin of cytokines demonstrated. The question, however, whether or not there is any difference in serum cytokines between TBI, multiple trauma (MT) and the combination of both (MT with TBI) which may significantly contribute to the(More)
Case Study: We report the case of a 60-year-old male, who suffered an impalement injury by a wooden branch approximately 32 cm in length, when he fell from a tree. The pole penetrated the left proximal thigh dorsomedially, passed the inguinal ligament and went on through the preperitoneal space and the diaphragm into the thorax without injuring any organ.(More)
In order to improve the Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) statistical efficacy increase for certain parameter vectors was investigated. Such vectors are used in real cases. Although immediate tests on humans are not possible it was possible to find rats as adequate substitute models. The rats were stimulated with a protocol of 81 parameter vectors. Their(More)
