    1999-01-01

    During this interdisciplinary study we have developed an ultra sensitive and reliable imaging system of DNA labelled by chemiluminescence. Based on a liquid nitrogen cooled CCD, the system achieves sensitivities down to 10 fg/mm 2 labelled DNA over a surface area of 25 x 25 cm 2 with a sub-millimeter resolution. Commercially available chemi-luminescent - and enhancer molecules are compared and their reaction conditions optimized for best signal-to-noise ratios. Double labelling was performed to verify quantification with radioactive probes. (authors)

  5. Endoergic chemi-ionization in N-O collisions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Nielsen, S.E.; Dahler, J.S.

    1979-01-01

    A semiclassical theory of endoergic chemi-ionization is developed and applied to the ionizing events that occur when ground state oxygen atoms collide with nitrogen atoms in the ground and first excited states. The approach used is an adaptation and extension of earlier theories due to Bardsley, Nakamura, and Miller. The theory relates the experimental associative (AI) and Penning ionization (PI) cross sections to the following events: formation of a stable diatomic ion (AI), neutral and ionized atomic fragments (PI), or of a metastable diatomic rotational resonance (DI, delayed ionization). The heavy particle motions are treated classically in terms of adiabatic potential energy functions, while localized nonadiabatic transitions also are taken into account by using the Landau-Zener approximation. Finally, the theoretical predictions compare well with the results of Ringer and Gentry's (1978) merged beam experiments

    Study the pre-operative combined therapy effect in the treatment of the rectum cancer cases of the Servicio de Cirugia General 2 of the Hospital Mexico. The study covers since January of 2003 until December of 2005. It has like specific objectives to analyze the effect in the tumour stages, the sphincters preservation and the recurrence. In the conclusions, it notes that the pre-operative chemie-radiation in the rectum cancer is indicated in II and III stages, in which it has showed most advantages for the patient. It describes that the time between the end of pre-operative combined treatment and the surgery must has at least six weeks to guarantee the effect in the tumour and to reduce the treatment toxicity. It concludes besides, that the complication rate after the pre-operative combined therapy and the total meso rectum excision is approximately of 33%; however, the pelvic septic complications can reduce with an ostomy of protection. It focus that the technique of sphincters preservation has showed to be effective and secure if it does a previous selection to the patients in appropriate form. To get an suitable stages must count with trans rectum endoscopic ultrasound and a tomography of suitable quality. It concludes, also, in intervened tumours after of neo-adjuvancy they don't need free distal margins of illness higher to 2 cm. The total meso rectum excision is the updated surgical recommendation in the rectum cancer [es

    Full Text Available Ballonkyphoplastie (BKP und Vertebroplastie (VP sind klinisch erfolgreiche Verfahren. Nichtsdestoweniger zeigen Einzelbeobachtungen bei der BKP ein Versagen der Methode, ohne dass bisher die Ursache aufgezeigt wurde. Nach unserer Meinung liegt das Versagen der BKP insbesondere bei schwerer Osteoporose und Osteonekrose am „Stressshielding“ sowie der Zementsteifigkeit. Bei diesen Patientengruppen könnten andere, knochenerhaltende kyphoplastische Verfahren und die Vertebroplastie sowie neuere, an den Osteoporosegrad angepasste Zemente Vorteile bringen. Weiterhin ist es wichtig, dass intraoperativ bei der BKP eine komplette Aufrichtung erzielt werden sollte, da eine Restkyphose den negativen Effekt hinsichtlich der Belastung der angrenzenden Wirbelkörper bei Erzeugung eines mit Zement gefüllten Hohlraums erhöht. Es ist somit zu überdenken, alternative knochenerhaltende kyphoplastische Massnahmen der BKP vorzuziehen, bei älteren Frakturen eher auf eine VP auszuweichen und neue Zemente einzusetzen.

    Incidental cardiovascular findings are a frequent phenomenon in computed tomography (CT) examinations. As the result of a dedicated PubMed search this article gives a systemic overview of the current literature on the most important incidental cardiovascular findings, their prevalence and clinical relevance. The majority of incidental cardiovascular findings are of only low clinical relevance; however, highly relevant incidental findings, such as aortic aneurysms, thromboses and thromboembolic events can also occasionally be found, especially in oncology patients. The scans from every CT examination should also be investigated for incidental findings as they can be of decisive importance for the further clinical management of patients, depending on their clinical relevance. (orig.) [German] Inzidentelle kardiovaskulaere Befunde sind ein haeufiges Phaenomen bei CT-Untersuchungen. Mit dieser Arbeit soll nach gezielter PubMed-Recherche ein systematischer Literaturueberblick ueber die wichtigsten kardiovaskulaeren Zufallsbefunde sowie deren Haeufigkeit und klinische Relevanz gegeben werden. Die Mehrzahl der inzidentellen kardiovaskulaeren Befunde sind klinisch nur von untergeordneter Bedeutung, allerdings werden immer wieder auch hochgradig relevante Zufallsbefunde wie beispielsweise Aortenaneurysmata oder - gerade bei onkologischen Patienten - Thrombosen und thrombembolische Ereignisse detektiert. Jede CT-Untersuchung sollte gezielt nach inzidentellen Befunden durchsucht werden, da diese je nach klinischer Relevanz von entscheidender Bedeutung fuer das weitere klinische Management des Patienten sein koennen.

    Full Text Available Unbleached chemi-mechanical pulp of 85% pulp yield and produced from hornbeam, beech and populus woods respectively by 3:1:1 ratio, was used for peroxide bleaching. Two bleaching systems, alkali peroxide (conventional bleaching and activated peroxide by TAED activator, were used for pulp bleaching. Bleaching treatments included different percentages of hydrogen peroxide and caustic soda consumption. In this research, the hydrogen peroxide consumption rate, pulp yield, process selectivity, bleached pulp brightness and bleaching effluent pollution load (COD were investigated. Results showed that, brightness values were increased by bleach chemicals charge rising, in both bleaching systems, but the increasing trend was downward. Also, pulp yield was decreased by increase of chemical charges, but residual peroxide was raised. The activated peroxide process compare to conventional process had lower efficiency and brightness improvement values of pulp were less than those of alkali peroxide process. But pulp yield and effluent pollution load was less by activated peroxide bleaching.

    In the Netherlands, the chemical industry is the largest industrial user of fossil feedstocks: approximately 20% of the total, of which 60% as feedstock for end products. The chemical industry can save on its current total consumption of fossil feedstocks of approximately 685 PJ up to 200 PJ by means of replacement, avoidance and saving. In the main sector, the organic chemical sector, the use of fossil feedstocks for end products can be reduced with 50% (140 PJ), half of which through replacement by renewable feedstocks from biomass and the other half by recycling of top 10 synthetics. The latter requires an international approach. [mk]. [Dutch] In Nederland is de chemie de grootste industriele gebruiker van fossiele grondstoffen: ruim 20% van het totaal waarvan 60% in de vorm van grondstof voor eindproducten. De chemie kan op haar huidig totaalverbruik aan fossiele grondstoffen van ca. 685 PJ tot 200 PJ besparen door vervanging, vermijding en besparing. In de belangrijkste sector, de organische chemie, kan het verbruik in de vorm van fossiele grondstof voor eindproduct met 50% (140 PJ) terug, waarvan de helft door vervanging door hernieuwbare grondstoffen uit biomassa en de helft door hergebruik van top-10 kunststoffen. Voor het laatste is een internationale aanpak nodig.

    Clinical MRI is mostly performed at field strengths up to 1.5 Tesla (T). Recently, approved clinical whole-body MR-systems with a field strength of 3 T became available. Its installation base is more rapidly growing than anticipated. While siting requirements and operation of these systems do not differ substantially from systems with lower field strength, there are differences in practical applications. Imaging applications can use the gain in signal-to-noise for increased spatial resolution or gain in speed. This comes at a trade off in increased sensitivity to field inhomogeneities and changes in relaxation times, which lead to changes in image contrast. The benefit of high field for spectroscopy consists in increased signal-to-noise-ratio and improvement in frequency resolution. The increase in energy deposition necessitates the use of special strategies to reduce the specific absorption rate (SAR). This paper summarizes the current state of MR at 3 T. (orig.) [German] Waehrend die klinische MRT zumeist bei Feldstaerken von bis zu 1,5 Tesla (T) durchgefuehrt wird, sind seit juengster Zeit zugelassene klinische 3-T-Ganzkoerper-MR-Systeme verfuegbar. Deren Verbreitung waechst schneller als erwartet. Waehrend sich die Aufstellungsbeduerfnisse und Handhabung dieser Systeme nicht mehr wesentlich von denen mit kleineren Feldstaerken unterscheidet, bestehen jedoch Unterschiede im praktischen Einsatz. Fuer die Bildgebung bei 3 T laesst sich das erhoehte Signal-zu-Rausch-Verhaeltnis (SNR) sowohl zu verbesserter raeumlicher Aufloesung oder schnellerer Bildaufnahme nutzen. Nachteilig fuehrt dies zu einer Erhoehung der Empfindlichkeit auf Feldinhomogenitaeten und veraenderten Relaxationszeiten, die zu Kontrastaenderungen fuehren. Fuer die MR-Spektroskopie liegt der Vorteil in der Erhoehung des SNR und der spektralen Aufloesung. Der Anstieg der pro Hochfrequenzanregung deponierten Energie macht darueber hinaus die Anwendung spezieller Strategien zur Reduktion der

    Shoulder impingement syndrome is a clinically common entity involving trapping of tendons or bursa with typical clinical findings. Important radiological procedures are ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MR arthrography. Projection radiography and computed tomography (CT) are ideal to identify bony changes and CT arthrography also serves as an alternative method in cases of contraindications for MRI. These modalities support the clinically suspected diagnosis of impingement syndrome and may identify its cause in primary diagnosis. In addition, effects of impingement are determined by imaging. Therapy decisions are based on a synopsis of radiological and clinical findings. The sensitivity and specificity of these imaging modalities with regard to the diagnostics of a clinically evident impingement syndrome are given in this review article. Orthopedic and trauma surgeons express the suspicion of an impingement syndrome based on patient history and physical examination and radiologists confirm structural changes and damage of intra-articular structures using dedicated imaging techniques.

  1. Modeling the sensing characteristics of chemi-resistive thin film semi-conducting gas sensors.

    Ghosh, Abhishek; Majumder, S B

    2017-08-30

    For chemi-resistive thin film gas sensors a generic theoretical model is proposed to predict the variation of sensor response with the operating temperature and thickness of the sensing film. A diffusion equation is formulated assuming that inflammable target gases move through the sensing film by Knudsen diffusion and react with the adsorbed oxygen following first-order kinetics. We have assumed a realistic non-linear variation between the conductance and test gas concentration and derived a general expression relating the sensor response to the operating temperature and thickness of the film. Assuming Langmuir adsorption kinetics, we have theoretically predicted the response and recovery transients during gas sensing using thin film sensing elements. It is predicted that for irreversible type sensing, the response time is reduced with an increase in test gas concentration, whereas for reversible sensing, the response time is independent of test gas concentration. For zinc oxide thin film sensors, an excellent match is obtained between the model prediction and experimental data for their thickness (122 nm to 380 nm) and temperature variation (200 °C to 325 °C) in 500 ppm carbon monoxide (CO) sensing. The maximum CO response% (∼53%) was achieved in 320 nm thick ZnO films. The conductance transients for response and recovery for CO sensing closely follow Langmuir adsorption kinetics and as predicted theoretically, indeed for irreversible sensing, the response time reduces from 350 s to 220 s with an increase in test gas concentration from 20 to 550 ppm. In the case of reversible sensing we found that the response time is ∼55 s irrespective of the CO gas concentration in the range of 5-500 ppm. The models developed in the present work are quite generic in nature and we have discussed their applicability to a wide variety of sensing materials with various types of surface morphologies.

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is frequently used in the presurgical diagnostic procedure of epilepsy patients, in particular for lateralization of speech and memory and for localization of the primary motor cortex to delineate the epileptogenic lesion from eloquent brain areas. fMRI is one of the non-invasive procedures in the presurgical diagnostic process, together with medical history, seizure semiology, neurological examination, interictal and ictal EEG, structural MRI, video EEG monitoring and neuropsychology. This diagnostic sequence leads either to the decision for or against elective epilepsy surgery or to the decision to proceed with invasive diagnostic techniques (Wada test, intra-operative or extra-operative cortical stimulation). It is difficult to evaluate the contribution of the fMRI test in isolation to the validity of the entire diagnostic sequence. Complications such as memory loss and aphasia in temporal lobe resections or paresis after frontal lobe resections are rare and rarely of disastrous extent. This further complicates the evaluation of the clinical relevance of fMRI as a predictive tool. In this article studies which investigated the concordance between fMRI and other diagnostic gold standards will be presented as well as the association between presurgical fMRI and postsurgical morbidity. (orig.) [German] Die funktionelle Magnetresonanztomographie (fMRT) wird im Rahmen der Epilepsiediagnostik vor epilepsiechirurgischen Eingriffen insbesondere zur Lateralisation von Sprache und Gedaechtnis und zur Lokalisation der Zentralregion eingesetzt, um den eloquenten Kortex von der epilepsieverursachenden, chirurgisch zugaenglichen Laesion abzugrenzen.

    The blood distribution on CCT (72 h after bleeding episode) of 26 patients with nonaneurysmal subarachnoidal haemorrhage confirmed by two normal cerebral angiograms was compared to the blood distribution of 76 patients with aneurysmal haemorrhage. The clinical condition of these patients was further analysed, 4-60 months after the bleeding episode. In 62% of patients with nonaneurysmal haemorrhage the blood distribution was perimesencephalic. The aneurysmal blood distribution pattern was more extended and only one patient showed a perimesencephalic pattern. 80% of the patients without aneurysms in angiography had no limitations in daily functional capacity.

    Surface doping of nano/mesostructured materials with metal nanoparticles to promote and optimize chemi-transistor sensing performance represents the most advanced research trend in the field of solid-state chemical sensing. In spite of the promising results emerging from metal-doping of a number of nanostructured semiconductors, its applicability to silicon-based chemi-transistor sensors has been hindered so far by the difficulties in integrating the composite metal-silicon nanostructures using the complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology. Here we propose a facile and effective top-down method for the high-yield fabrication of chemi-transistor sensors making use of composite porous silicon/gold nanostructures (cSiAuNs) acting as sensing gate. In particular, we investigate the integration of cSiAuNs synthesized by metal-assisted etching (MAE), using gold nanoparticles (NPs) as catalyst, in solid-state junction-field-effect transistors (JFETs), aimed at the detection of NO2 down to 100 parts per billion (ppb). The chemi-transistor sensors, namely cSiAuJFETs, are CMOS compatible, operate at room temperature, and are reliable, sensitive, and fully recoverable for the detection of NO2 at concentrations between 100 and 500 ppb, up to 48 h of continuous operation.

    The paper industry is one of the largest consumers of energy and energy consumption has been increased several times in last few decades. Bagasse chemical pulping has very low yield about 45-55% and also generates high pollution load in the effluent as compared to mechanical pulping, g. Thermo-mechanical pulp (TMP). On the other hand,-->e.g. thermo-mechanical pulp (TMP). On the other hand, the specific energy consumption is very high for TMP pulps. ETMP (Energy efficient Thermo-Mechanical Pulping) or ECTMP (Energy efficient Chemi-Thermo Mechanical Pulping) is an innovative idea for reducing the energy demand in TMP refining. In the present investigation, energy efficient mechanical pulping potential of bagasse was studied using TMP, CTMP and ECTMP pulping methodology with electron irradiation pretreatment. It is evident from the results that more than 50% energy saving potential of irradiation pre-treatment was achieved.

    The term ''acute abdomen'' does not describe a specific disease entity but is more a critical clinical state which incorporates very heterogeneous clinical presentations. The prognosis of any disease depends on the time frame from the onset of symptoms to the initiation of a specific therapy. For this reason there are special expectations by clinicians regarding the diagnostic assessment provided by radiology which is expected to deliver an immediate diagnosis supporting further therapeutic decisions. Along with the patient's clinical history, physical examination and blood tests, radiological diagnostics are essential for enabling a specific treatment. From a surgical point of view the radiologist is expected to help in differentiating between cases with indications for emergency surgery and cases eligible for elective surgery or conservative treatment. (orig.) [German] Der Begriff ''akutes Abdomen'' stellt keine eigenstaendige Erkrankung dar, sondern beschreibt einen kritischen klinischen Zustand, unter dessen Oberbegriff sich die unterschiedlichsten Krankheitsbilder subsumieren lassen. Das Zeitintervall zwischen dem Auftreten der ersten Symptome bis zur Einleitung einer gezielten Therapie ist fuer die Prognose der Patienten der entscheidende Faktor. Aus diesem Grund bestehen besondere Anforderungen an die bildgebende Diagnostik, die dazu beitragen soll, innerhalb kuerzester Zeit eine moeglichst genaue Diagnose zu stellen. Neben Anamnese, klinischer Untersuchung und Labordiagnostik stellt die radiologische Untersuchung einen wesentlichen Baustein vor der Therapieeinleitung dar. Aus chirurgischer Sicht muessen Krankheitsbilder, die eine sofortige Notfalloperation erforderlich machen, von Erkrankungen differenziert werden, die eine elektive Chirurgie oder ein konservatives Vorgehen indizieren.

    Cosmic particle radiation may damages payload's electronics, optics, and sensors during of long-term scientific space mission especially the interplanetary ones. That is why it's extremely important to prevent failures of digital electronics, CCDs, semiconductor detectors at the times of passing through regions of enhanced charged particle fluxes. Well developed models of the Earth's radiation belts allow to predict and to protect sensitive equipment against disastrous influence of radiation due to energetic particle contained in the Van Allen belts. In the contrary interplanetary probes flying far away from our planet undergoes passages through clouds of plasma and solar cosmic rays not predictable by present models. Especially these concerns missions planned for non-ecliptic orbits. The practical approach to protect sensitive modules may be to measure the in situ particle fluxes with high time resolution and generation of alarm flags, which will switch off sensitive units of particular scientific equipment. The ChemiX (Chemical composition in X-rays) instrument is being developed by the Solar Physics Division of Polish Space Research Centre for the Interhelio-Probe interplanetary mission. Charged particle bursts can badly affect the regular measurements of X-ray spectra of solar origin. In order to detect presence of these enhanced particle fluxes the Background Particle Monitor (BPM) was developed constituting now a vital part of ChemiX. The BPM measurements of particle fluxes will assist to determine level of X-ray spectra contamination. Simultaneously BPM will measure the energy spectra of ambient particles. We present overall structure, design, technical and a scientific characteristic of BPM, particle sorts, and energy ranges to be registered. We describe nearly autonomous modular structure of BPM consisting of detector head, analogue and digital electronics modules, and of module of secondary power supply [1-3]. Detector head consists of three

    Background: The efficacy of radiotherapy for degenerative-inflammatory disorders is well known, but so far long-term observations and reliable assessment of symptoms according to objective criteria and scores for validation are still missing. Results: Forty-three patients (ot totally 85)(50 elbows of totally 93) achieved `complete pain relief (CR)` in all pain categories: 59% elbows with pain at strain had `complete pain relief`, 79% with pain at night, 84% with permanent pain, 80% with pain at rest and 81% with pain at initiation or morning stiffness. Nineteen elbows gained `major pain relief (PR)`, i.e. had minor symptoms (maximum grade 1) in all categories. Thus, a total of 69 (74%) elbows responded to radiotherapy. Seventeen patients (19 elbows) were operated because of persistent symptoms or dissatisfaction in long-term follow-up; 7 of those became completely free of symptoms. The Morrey-Score improved by a mean of 18 points from 78 prior to radiotherapy to 96 points at last follow-up. According to the Morrey-Score only 2 patients became worse in long-term follow-up. Two parameters indicated a negative prognosis in multivariate analysis: Long symptom duration prior to radiotherapy and immobilisation with plaster (p<0.05). Conclusions: Radiotherapy for refractory epicondylopathia humeri is highly effective. Long symptom duration and long-term immobilisation by plaster are negative prognostic factors for treatment outcome. Due to the low side effects and treatment costs, radiotherapy is a good therapeutic option in comparison to conventional treatment methods and surgery in the chronic stage of epicondylopathia humeri.

    Peripheral neuropathies are common and diagnostically often challenging disorders. Difficulties particularly exist in lesion localization and recognition of complex spatial lesion patterns. Medical history taking, neurological examination, neurophysiological tests and nerve ultrasonography represent the gold standard in the diagnosis of peripheral nerve lesions but have known methodical limitations. The use of 3 Tesla magnetic resonance neurography (MRN) is an additional diagnostic imaging tool recently developed for the high-resolution visualization of long segments of peripheral nerves. Reasonable clinical indications for MRN are exemplarily presented. Using MRN a direct visualization and thus precise localization of focal and non-focal peripheral nerve lesions of various origins can be achieved with high spatial resolution down to the anatomical level of nerve fascicles. Using MRN large anatomical areas of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) can be covered in a single examination session, spatial nerve lesion patterns can be evaluated and the underlying causes can often be detected. The MRN is a valuable supplement to the diagnostic work-up of the PNS, especially in cases that cannot be clarified with standard diagnostic methods. Evaluation of the spatial nerve lesion pattern gives additional information on the origin of the underlying disease. Reasonable indications for MRN are the assessment of proximal nerve structures including the brachial and lumbosacral nerve plexi, the clarification of inconclusive diagnostic results, preoperative, postoperative and posttraumatic assessments, the identification of fascicular nerve lesions and the differential diagnosis of an alleged somatoform disorder.

    Full Text Available [english] Introduction: Objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs have proved to be a reliable and valid assessment tool for basic clinical skills. In regards to the more and more practical education of medical students there is an increasing need for the implementation of OSCEs. To facilitate this implementation we would like to give a review of literature and to present our 12 station OSCE at the Medical Hospital of the University of Heidelberg. Methods: During winter term 2004 / 2005 143 medical students in thir 3rd year of training participated the OSCE. For the conception of the assessment a blueprint was used. Standard setting was carried out with a modified Angoff method, students performance was assessed by experts using self-developed checklists. Results: The OSCE at the Medical Hospital of the University of Heidelberg showed a reliability of 0,748. According to the results of the standard setting procedure 142 students (99,3% passed the exam. Taking the OSCE on the first, second or third day of assessment did not have impact on students' performance. Discussion: The OSCE at the Medical Hospital of the University of Heidelberg proves to be a reliable and fair assessment tool. Even the OSCE represents an assessment tool that needs resources and time it is well accepted in students and raters if it is planned and organised carefully.

    Die Bestimmung von spezifischen IgE-Antikörpern spielt eine zentrale Bedeutung bei der Diagnostik von Bienen- und Wespengiftallergien. In den letzten Jahren wurden die komponentenbasierte Diagnostik (CRD) eingeführt, die die Bestimmung spezifischer IgE-Antikörper gegen die Allergene Api m 1, Ves v 1, Ves v 5 und Pol d 5 sowie kreuzreaktive Kohlenhydratdeterminanten (CCDs) erlaubt. Hierdurch soll vor allem bei Probanden mit Doppelsensibilisierungen die klinische Relevanz der einzelnen Sensibilisierungen besser beurteilt werden können. Die spezifischen IgE-Antikörper-Bestimmungen an 143 Probanden mit Bienen- und/oder Wespengiftallergie erfolgten mit den extraktbasierten ImmunoCAP®-Allergenen i1 und i3 sowie den ImmunoCAP®-Allergenkomponenten i208-211 und o214 (Api m 1, Ves v 1, Ves v 5, Pol d 5, CCD). Bei Doppelsensibilisierten wurde zusätzlich ein Inhibitionstest durchgeführt. An einem Teilkollektiv der Studienpopulation erfolgten sIgE-Bestimmungen gegen Api m 1, Api m 4, Pol d 5 und Ves v 5 mittels Allergiechip (ISAC®, n  =  44). Die Sensitivität von Ves v 5 bei isolierten Wespengiftallergikern betrug 78,5 %, gemeinsam mit Ves v 1 stieg diese auf 92,3 %. Die Sensitivität von Api m 1 bei isolierten Bienengiftallergikern betrug 25 %. Die komponentenbasierte Diagnostik und Inhibitionstests bei Doppelsensibilisierten lieferten divergente Ergebnisse. Die CRD mittels ISAC®-Allergiechip erbrachte deutliche Unterschiede vor allem im Hinblick auf die Diagnostik von Api m 1 und CCDs. Die CRD bereichert das diagnostische Spektrum, sofern sie nicht allein sondern zusätzlich zu den etablierten Verfahren eingesetzt wird. Sie sollte neben Ves v 5 stets die Bestimmung der IgE-Antikörper gegen Ves v 1 umfassen. © 2017 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG). Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    During a period of two years, 134 patients with pseudo-arthrosis of the scaphoid were examined by conventional radiography and by MRI in the course of a prospective study. The aim of the study was to define radiological staging using contrast enhanced MRI in order to improve the prognostic criteria. All MRI examinations were carried out with a 1.5 Tesla scanner (SP63) using a surface coil and T{sub 1} weighted spin echo sequences in sagittal and frontal projection and frontal FLASH T{sub 2}-sequences and axial spin echo T{sub 2} sequences. The T{sub 1} weighted SE sequences in frontal projection were carried out before and after iv contrast (0.1 mmol Gd-DTPA/kg KG). All sequences were compared with conventional radiographs and the operative findings. Eight patients in stage 0 showed high signal intensity of both fragments in T{sub 1} weighted SE sequences and at surgery there was good vascularisation. In 22 cases there was reduced signal intensity in at least one fragment (stage I). 45 patients with scaphoid pseudo-arthrosis showed complete signal loss but marked contrast uptake with still vital nuclei at surgery (stage II). In 22 patients, there was no increase in signal intensity after contrast and complete loss of vitality of the fragments at surgery. Staging was not possible in 37 patients because of previous operative intervention. The use of contrast enhanced MRI provides additional information compared with conventional radiography or plain MRI. (orig.)

    In the context of the Dutch chemical industry's Roadmap the industry is actively seeking concrete ways of improving the efficiency of its products and processes. One option is to make higher-grade use of current waste streams, as feedstocks for other products, for example. This study focuses on propane waste streams from the oil and gas processing industry. Today these are used partly as fuel (fuel gas) but there are no technical barriers to converting propane to propylene, which can then be used as a feedstock. Higher-grade use of this particular waste stream leads to CO2 emission reductions in the production chain. Given the high market price of propylene, such a move may also be economically attractive. The study focuses on the Rotterdam region, because propane suppliers and companies seeking propylene are in closest proximity there [Dutch] In het kader van de Routekaart Chemie is de chemische industrie actief op zoek naar concrete opties om in haar processen en producten de efficiency te verhogen. Een route is daarbij om reststromen hoogwaardiger te benutten en in te zetten als grondstof voor andere producten. Dit onderzoek richt zich op reststromen propaan uit de olie- en gasverwerkende industrie. Deze worden nu deels als brandstof (stookgas) ingezet maar technisch is het mogelijk propaan om te zetten in propeen, dat als grondstof voor de chemische industrie kan worden gebruikt. Door het hoogwaardiger benutten van deze reststroom wordt in de keten een reductie van CO2 gerealiseerd. Tegelijk kan het economisch interessant zijn, vanwege de hoge marktprijzen van propeen. De studie focust op de regio Rotterdam, omdat leveranciers van propaan en afnemers van propeen daar het meest dichtbij elkaar gevestigd zijn.

Eine der ersten klinisch etablierten Anwendungen ist die DWI bei der Prostata-MRT, die in den international anerkannten PI-RADS- und ESUR-Leitlinien bereits fest integriert ist. In naher Zukunft wird die klinische Etablierung der DWI auch fuer die Mamma-MRT erwartet, hier wurden Spezifitaetswerte und negative praediktive Werte von 94 bzw. 92 % berichtet. Die DWI kann auch als Ganzkoerperbildgebung fuer Patienten mit systemischen Knochenmarkerkrankungen wie dem multiplen Myelom oder zur Frage nach dem Ausmass der Skelettmetastasierung zuverlaessig eingesetzt werden. Neue Techniken der DWI, wie die ''intravoxel incoherent motion DWI'', die Kurtosis-Bildgebung oder histogrammbasierte Auswertungen stellen vielversprechende und innovative Verfahren dar, um Tumordetektion oder Therapieansprechen zunehmend quantitativer durchfuehren zu koennen.

    Aim: The implementation of diagnostic standards enhances quality assurance. The American College of Radiology's breast imaging-reporting and data system (BI-RADS{sup TM}) is intended to standardize terminology in the mammography report, the assessment of the findings, and the recommendation af action to be taken. The purpose of this study was to assess the value of the standardized system for clinically apparent male breast tumors. Do the special male anatomy and physiology limit the applicability of an evaluation system designed for female screening mammograms? Methods: 4 investigators with different degrees of experience retrospectively evaluated 160 male mammograms. Our study was based on the 36 cases which could be correlated to histopathological findings: gynecomastia in the majority of cases, but also 4 invasive ductal carcinoma, 1 leiomyosarcoma and 1 ductal carcinoma in situ. Results: Assessment of the mammograms by BI-RADS{sup TM} (3{sup rd} Edition 1998) correctly placed all cases of malignancy into categories 4 and 5 without respect to the investigators's level of experience. Conclusion: Therefore, we conclude that the BI-RADS{sup TM}-classification can successfully be used to classify male mammograms with a high positive predictive value for malignancy. Knowledge of gender-specific imaging characteristics increases the specificity at a constant high level of sensitivity. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Diffuser Haarausfall ist ein häufiges Krankheitsbild in der täglichen Praxis, dessen Diagnostik allerdings oft eine Herausforderung darstellt. In den vergangenen 10 Jahren wurden große Fortschritte in der Erforschung der Effekte diverser Hormone erzielt. In murinen Haarfollikeln wird Corticoliberin (Corticotropin-releasing Hormone [CRH] mit einem Peak in der Anagenphase (Wachstumsphase exprimiert. Ein stressinduziert erhöhter CRH-Spiegel kann durch Aktivierung von Mastzellen zu erhöhtem Haarverlust führen. Melatonin wird ebenfalls im Haarfollikel exprimiert und wirkt dort auf unterschiedliche Rezeptoren. Besonders der nukleäre Retinoic Acid Receptor-(RAR- Related Orphan-Receptor alpha (RORα scheint regulatorisch auf haarzyklusabhängige Prozesse zu wirken und wird auch abhängig vom Haarzyklus exprimiert. Melatonin greift zudem in androgen- und östrogenvermittelte Signaltransduktionswege ein. Eine topische Anwendung von Melatonin kann zu einer Zunahme der Anagenhaare führen. Auch Leptin wird im Haarfollikel exprimiert und beeinflusst Haarwachstum und Hautregeneration durch Aktivierung von STAT3. Bei Mäusen konnte durch Leptin die Anagenphase induziert werden. Über den Zusammenhang zwischen androgenetischer Alopezie und Metabolischem Syndrom wurden zahlreiche widersprüchliche Daten veröffentlicht. Zuletzt wies eine große koreanische Studie eine positive Assoziation der Krankheitsbilder bei Frauen nach, jedoch nicht bei Männern. Prolaktin induziert den verfrühten Übergang zur Katagenphase, senkt die Proliferationsrate der Keratinozyten im Haarfollikel und steigert deren Apoptoserate. Eine zu Haarausfall führende Hyperprolaktinämie kann unter anderem durch diverse Medikamente, insbesondere typische und atypische Neuroleptika, hervorgerufen werden. Zahlreiche Studien an Mäusen konnten belegen, dass der Vitamin-D-Rezeptor (VDR eng mit dem Haarwachstum assoziiert ist. Dieser scheint den Haarzyklus unabhängig von seinen Liganden zu kontrollieren. Auch zur Rolle des Eisenhaushaltes bzw. des Ferritinspiegels existieren widersprüchliche Daten. Ein Ferritinwert 40 μg/l könnte mit verstärktem Haarausfall assoziiert sein. Unklar bleibt, ob eine Eisensubstitution in diesen Fällen zum Nachwachsen der Haare führt. Verschiedene Hormone können endokrin, autokrin oder parakrin vermittelt das Haarwachstum beeinflussen. Neue Studien können Aufschluss über das komplexe Zusammenspiel diverser Regelkreisläufe geben und mögliche zukünftige Therapiemöglichkeiten aufzeigen.

CliSO is implemented in their core curricula with the intention to foster students’ medical examination skills at the preclinical and clinical level. Methods: Both partners contributed their special competencies in the fields of case-based learning (Munich: CASUS e-learning platform and systematic learning (Kiel: Nickels e-learning platform. The didactic concept comprises the integration of theory and practice. It combines the standardized teaching of the following three components: Clinical skills are trained and reviewed in face-to-face courses. In the e-learning environment, the well-directed combination of case-based and systematic learning together with the chosen diversity of media (video, audio, animation facilitates situated learning as well as the intelligible presentation of clinical skills and their biomedical background. Both faculties agreed on joint learning objectives and standards. Results and prospects: It was possible to apply the concept to the different target groups at both faculties (first and second study phases and the differently designed face-to-face courses (Kiel: students examine each other; Munich: patients are examined in addition. Evaluations and studies confirmed the success of this approach, so that a transfer of the concept to other faculties is intended.

    In this study, input variables for chemical transport models were compared from different meteorological drivers each with other and with the measured friction velocities in one place. Friction velocities are used as a measure of the mechanical turbulence, but are made available neither by numerical weather models nor routinely available observations: so they must either recalculate or estimated. In this study, friction velocities (u{sup *}), which is measured for years by the DWD in Lindenberg near Berlin, averaged over 30 minutes and have been made available to FU Berlin, compared with modeled values. The considered models are firstly the diagnostic interpolation model TRAMPER, on the other the prognostic models of the DWD COSMO-EU and the EZMWF. The boundary layer relevant parameters from the NWM were recalculated from the involved groups, which has been made for the COSMO-EU the one from the FU Berlin, the other from IfT in Leipzig. The boundary layer variables in the EZMWF model, however, were determined by TNO Netherlands. The measurements have shown that u{sup *} in the forest twice as high as above the meadow.

    Aim: Retrospective evaluation of Tc-99m ciprofloxacin (infecton) scintigraphy consecutively performed in a series of patients clinically suspected for peripheral osteomyelitis (OM), spondylodiscitis (SD) and fever of unknown origin (FUO). Methods: A total of 20 patients clinically suspected for OM (n = 12), SD (n = 3) and FUO (n = 5) were included in our retrospective analysis. The additional criterion was a positive 3-phase bone scan for OM, or a 2-phase bone scan in case of SD. Planar whole body scans and static acquisitions were performed 1 and 4 h after application of 370 MBq Tc-99m ciprofloxacin. In 10 patients with suspected OM, additional immunoscintigraphy using Tc-99m labelled monoclonal antibodies (Mab BW 250/183) was performed and the correlation of infecton to bloodpool and antigranulocyte scintigraphy was analysed. Results: OM: Bacterial infection was confirmed in 8 of 15 lesions. Infecton demonstrated true positive (TP) results in 7 of 8, true negative (TN) results in 2 of 7, false positive (FP) results in 5 of 7 patients and one false negative (FN) result. A strong correlation could be demonstrated between T/NT ratios of infecton and bloodpool Tc-99m medronate imaging (r = 0.84, 0.88) and between infecton and BW 250/183 (r = 0.92, 0.90). Using a threshold of 2.0 for T/NT ratio, only TP results could be observed whereas a T/NT in the range of 1.0-2.0 could not discriminate between septic and aseptic inflammation. Concordant results with Mab BW 250/183 could only be observed in 5 of 10 patients (4 TP, 1 TN) by showing 4 FP and 1 FN lesions with IF. Conclusion: Non-specific uptake of infecton can be observed in a variety of clinical situations with moderate uptake, by showing a strong correlation with blood-pool imaging. Nevertheless, intense uptake may be specific for septic inflammation. (orig.)

    Full Text Available [english] Aims: Despite many efforts by support groups, mental health professionals and health care policy-makers, a stigmatization of psychiatry as a specialty and of mentally ill people is still prevalent in the general population. Earlier studies have shown that the stigma is prevalent even among psychiatric professionals and students of medicine and psychology. However, past studies on this issue often used questionnaires with a limited validity. Also questionnaires do not necessarily allow a neutral assessment of the underlying concepts of the student. Methods: In this study 133 students were asked to create mind maps on psychiatry. Results: In a systematic evaluation (based on a consensus of psychiatric concepts of 1353 concepts we found non-specific associations (N = 431 and five main categories: (i illness scirpts (n = 487; (ii therapeutic concepts (n = 241, (iii and (iv stigma and forensic psychiatry (81 mentions each; and (v psychopathology (n = 32.

    Full Text Available Objective. To assess safety of nimesulid in rheumatic pts with history of ulcer or multiple erosions (ME of stomach and/or duodenal mucosa. Methods. 42 pts with rheumatic diseases aged 22-73 years were included. AH had gastric or duodenal ulcers or ME (n>10 connected with NSAID treatment and confirmed by endoscopy no more than 6 months before the beginning of the study. Pts were included after healing of ulcers and erosions. The pts were randomized to receive Nimesulid 200 mg/day (group 1 or Diclofenac suppositoria 100 mg/day + ranitidine 150 mg/day (group 2. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy was performed before and 12 weeks after the beginning of treatment. Results. Relapse of stomach ulcer was observed in I pts of group 1 (5,6%. Relapse of NSAID-induced ulcers and ME was noted in 6 pts of group 2 (33,3%: in 4 cases stomach ulcers, in 1 case stomach ME, in 1 case duodenal ulcer (p=0,0424. Presence of gastralgias and dyspepsia was noted in 36,8% pts of group 1 and in 20% pts of group 2 (p=0,0539. In 1 pts of group 2 gastralgias were the reason for premature endoscopy. Conclusion. Nimesil (Nimesulid can be considered as a more safe drug than classical NSAIDs with smaller risk of serious gastroduodenal complications development in rheumatic pts with ulcer history. The results of the study allow to recommend Nimesulid as a drug of choice for treatment of pts with history of NSAID-induced gastropathy.

    In this contribution, a significant catalyst based on spinel ZnMn2O4 composite nanoparticles has been developed for electro-catalysis of nitrophenol and photo-catalysis of brilliant cresyl blue. ZnMn2O4 composite (hetaerolite) nanoparticles were prepared by easy low temperature hydrothermal procedure and structurally characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and UV-visible spectroscopy which illustrate that the prepared material is optical active and composed of well crystalline body-centered tetragonal nanoparticles with average size of ∼ 38 ± 10 nm. Hetaerolite nanoparticles were applied for the advancement of a nitrophenol sensor which exhibited high sensitivity (1.500 µAcm(-2) mM(-1)), stability, repeatability and lower limit of detection (20.0 µM) in short response time (10 sec). Moreover, hetaerolite nanoparticles executed high solar photo-catalytic degradation when applied to brilliant cresyl blue under visible light.

    This thesis addresses an important problem of biomedical acid-base theory, where there are two apparently contradictory ways of describing the acid-base status of blood plasma, while the underlying physiology and chemistry obviously has to be only one. The two descriptions are called the traditional approach, based mainly on the work of Ole Siggaard-Andersen and the modern approach, based on the work of Peter Stewart and his followers. This work has three starting points. First are generally ...

    Violence against children has many faces. Child physical abuse, neglect, sexual abuse and interparental violence can cause acute and permanent damage and affect children's development and their life plans in the long term. In industrialized nations almost 1 child in 10 is affected. Up to 10% of child physical abuse cases involve the central nervous system with 80% of these cases occurring during the first year of life. Worldwide more than 50,000 children die as a result of violence, abuse and neglect every year, according to the United Nations Children's Fund UNICEF. In Germany, there are about 120 cases of non-accidental head injury per year. In addition to the officially known cases there is a large grey area for all forms of violence. Recognition of these cases and the provision of help for the victims require an appropriate suspicion and understanding of the pertinent pathophysiology. Suspicion must be based on a well-documented medical history and multidisciplinary diagnostic assessment. Medical confidentiality prevents the disclosure of such information making early detection networks and guidelines for collaboration absolutely indispensable. (orig.) [German] Gewalt gegen Kinder hat viele Gesichter: Kindesmisshandlung, Vernachlaessigung, sexueller Missbrauch und elterliche Partnerschaftsgewalt koennen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen zu akuten und bleibenden Schaeden fuehren und ihre Entwicklung und Lebensentwuerfe nachhaltig beeinflussen. Betroffen ist in Industrienationen fast jedes zehnte Kind. Bis zu 10% der Kindesmisshandlungen betreffen das zentrale Nervensystem. Von diesen ereignen sich ca. 80% im ersten Lebensjahr. Weltweit sterben nach Angaben der Kinderhilfsorganisation UNICEF jaehrlich ueber 50.000 Kinder an den Folgen von Gewalt, Missbrauch und Vernachlaessigung. In Deutschland ereignen sich pro Jahr ca. 120 Faelle an nichtakzidentellen Kopfverletzungen. Den oeffentlich bekannten Faellen steht eine hohe Dunkelziffer aller Formen von Gewalt gegenueber. Sie zu erkennen und den Betroffenen zu helfen, setzt einen entsprechenden Verdacht voraus sowie die Kenntnis der Pathophysiologie. Der Verdacht erfordert eine gut dokumentierte Anamnese und interdisziplinaere Diagnostik. Aufgrund der aerztlichen Schweigepflicht ist die Informationsweitergabe erschwert, weshalb Netzwerke zur Frueherkennung und Leitlinien zur Kooperation unverzichtbar sind. (orig.)

    About 10% of breast cancers are ''hereditary'', i.e. caused by a pathogenic mutation in one of the ''breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility genes'' (BRCA). The BRCA genes 1 and 2 identified to date follow an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. A clustering of breast cancer in a family without a documented mutation and without a recognizable inheritance pattern is usually referred to as ''familial cancer''. A distinction between hereditary and familial is difficult in the individual case because not all of the genetic mutations that cause breast cancer susceptibility are known and thus amenable to genetic testing. Women who are suspected of or documented as carrying a breast cancer susceptibility gene face a substantially increased lifetime risk of breast (and ovarian) cancer ranging from 60-80% for breast and up to 40% for ovarian cancer. In addition, the disease develops at a young age (the personal risk starts increasing at age 25; average age of diagnosis is 40). BRCA-associated breast cancers tend to exhibit histologic and histochemical evidence of aggressive biologic behavior (usually grade 3, receptor negative) with very fast growth rates. In particular BRCA1-associated breast cancer may be indistinguishable from fibroadenomas: They appear as well-defined, roundish, hypoechoic masses with smooth borders, without posterior acoustic shadowing on ultrasound, without associated microcalcifications on mammography, and with strong wash-out phenomenon on breast MRI. This article reviews the different options that exist for the prevention of familial or hereditary breast cancer and the specific difficulties that are associated with the radiological diagnosis of these cancers. Lastly, an overview is given of the current evidence regarding the effectiveness of the different imaging modalities for early diagnosis of familial and hereditary breast cancer. (orig.)

    The increasing use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in clinical diagnostics means that patients and physicians are confronted more often with incidental findings. In the literature there are fluctuating data on the incidence of such findings and guidelines concerning the further procedure exist in only very few cases, such as incidental aneurysms and pituitary adenomas. The diagnostic and therapeutic implications which can be derived from incidental findings depend on multiple factors, such as anatomical location, patient age, comorbidity and patient wishes. For this reason it often makes sense to refer patients with incidental findings to an interdisciplinary neurological center at an early stage. In this review frequent incidental cerebral findings, epidemiological data, imaging criteria and, where possible, recommendations for the further procedure are shown. (orig.) [German] Durch den gehaeuften Einsatz der MRT in der zerebralen Diagnostik werden Arzt und Patienten in zunehmendem Masse mit Zufallsbefunden, auch Nebenbefunde genannt, konfrontiert. In der Literatur existieren sehr schwankende Angaben zur Haeufigkeit solcher Zufallsbefunde. Nur fuer einzelne dieser Befunde, wie z. B. das inzidentelle Aneurysma oder das Hypophysenadenom, existieren Leitlinien fuer das weitere Prozedere. Die aus einem Zufallsbefund abzuleitenden diagnostischen und therapeutischen Konsequenzen sind von vielen Faktoren, wie z. B. der anatomischen Lage, dem Patientenalter, den Komorbiditaeten und dem Patientenwunsch abhaengig. Daher ist es oft sinnvoll, den Patienten mit einem Zufallsbefund fruehzeitig in einem interdisziplinaeren Neurozentrum vorzustellen. In der vorliegenden Arbeit werden haeufige zerebrale Zufallsbefunde mit epidemiologischen Daten, bildgebenden Kriterien und - wenn moeglich - Empfehlungen bzgl. des weiteren Vorgehens gezeigt.

  11. f(R Theories

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Antonio De Felice

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Over the past decade, f(R theories have been extensively studied as one of the simplest modifications to General Relativity. In this article we review various applications of f(R theories to cosmology and gravity – such as inflation, dark energy, local gravity constraints, cosmological perturbations, and spherically symmetric solutions in weak and strong gravitational backgrounds. We present a number of ways to distinguish those theories from General Relativity observationally and experimentally. We also discuss the extension to other modified gravity theories such as Brans–Dicke theory and Gauss–Bonnet gravity, and address models that can satisfy both cosmological and local gravity constraints.

    2015-01-01

    We introduce the discrete Fr\\'echet gap and its variants as an alternative measure of similarity between polygonal curves. We believe that for some applications the new measure (and its variants) may better reflect our intuitive notion of similarity than the discrete Fr\\'echet distance (and its variants), since the latter measure is indifferent to (matched) pairs of points that are relatively close to each other. Referring to the frogs analogy by which the discrete Fr\\'echet distance is often...

    2001-07-01

    The book starts by presenting the fundamentals of indoor air hygiene with all relevant chemical, physical and physiological data, standards, criteria of comfort and tolerance levels. Indoor air pollutants are combustion products, volatile organic substances, dust, fibres, radon and bio-aerosols. They are analyzed toxicologically in consideration of the dose/time effect principle and of NOEL, ADI, immission MIC and MPC levels. The somatic and psychosomatic reactions that can be defined in medical terms are described, and the complex symptoms of SBS are derived from them. SBS is a phenomenon with serious consequences: Either the building must be modified to ensure more wholesome living and working conditions, or else the inhabitants need psychological consulting. [German] Das Buch behandelt zunaechst die Grundlagen der Luft- und Wohnungshygiene mit ihren relevanten chemischen, physikalischen und physiologischen Kenndaten, Normwerten, Behaglichkeitskriterien und Toleranzschwellen. Schadstoffe in Innenraeumen sind Verbrennungsprodukte, fluechtige organische Verbindungen sowie Staeube, Fasern, Radon und Bioaerosole. Sie werden toxikologisch unter Beruecksichtigung des Dosis-Zeit-Wirkungsprinzips sowie von NOEL, ADI-, Immissions-, MIK- und MAK-Werten beurteilt. Die medizinisch fassbaren somatischen und psychosomatischen Reaktionen werden beschrieben und daraus die komplexe Symptomatik des SBS abgeleitet. Es macht entweder eine Gebaeudesanierung notwendig oder die psychologische Betreuung der Betroffenen. (orig.)

  20. Wirken sich unterschiedliche medizinische Curricula auf das selbst eingeschätzte klinische Denken von Studierenden aus?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gehlhar, Kirsten

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available [english] Objectives: As a fundamental element of medical practice, clinical reasoning should be cultivated in courses of study in human medicine. To date, however, no conclusive evidence has been offered as to what forms of teaching and learning are most effective in achieving this goal. The Diagnostic Thinking Inventory (DTI was developed as a means of measuring knowledge-unrelated components of clinical reasoning. The present pilot study examines the adequacy of this instrument in measuring differences in the clinical reasoning of students in varying stages of education in three curricula of medical studies. Methods: The Diagnostic Thinking Inventory (DTI comprises 41 items in two subscales (“Flexibility in Thinking” and “Structure of Knowledge in Memory”. Each item contains a statement or finding concerning clinical reasoning in the form of a stem under which a 6-point scale presents opposing conclusions. The subjects are asked to assess their clinical thinking within this range. The German-language version of the DTI was completed by 247 student volunteers from three schools and varying clinical semesters. In a quasi-experimental design, 219 subjects from traditional and model courses of study in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia took part. Specifically, these were 5, 6 and 8 semester students from the model course of study at Witten/Herdecke University (W/HU, from the model (7 and 9 semester and traditional (7 semester courses of study at the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB and from the model course of study (9 semester at the University of Cologne (UoC. The data retrieved were quantitatively assessed.Results: The reliability of the questionnaire in its entirety was good (Cronbach’s alpha between 0.71 and 0.83; the reliability of the subscales ranged between 0.49 and 0.75. The different groups were compared using the Mann-Whitney test, revealing significant differences among semester cohorts within a school as well as between students from similar academic years in different schools. Among the participants from the model course of study at the W/HU, scores increased from the 5 to the 6 semester and from the 5 to the 9 semester. Among individual cohorts at RUB, no differences could be established between model and traditional courses of study or between 7 and 9 semester students in model courses of study. Comparing all participating highest semester students, the 8 semester participants from the W/HU achieved the highest scores – significantly higher than those of 9 semester RUB students or 9 semester UoC students. Scores from the RUB 9 semester participants were significantly higher than those of the 9 semester UoC participants.Discussion: The German-language version of the DTI measures self-assessed differences in diagnostic reasoning among students from various semesters and different model and traditional courses of study with satisfactory reliability. The results can be used for discussion in the context of diverse curricula. The DTI is therefore appropriate for further research that can then be correlated with the different teaching method characteristics and outcomes of various curricula.

    Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) includes 1 H magnetic resonance spectroscopy, diffusion-weighted imaging, and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. These new MRI techniques are increasingly being used to supplement conventional T 2 and T 1-weighted MR sequences in prostate imaging. The first part of this review outlines each of these techniques, the most important diagnostic parameters, and the pathophysiological background. The characteristic features of prostate cancer and noncancerous prostate tissue as depicted with each of the three techniques are presented. The second, clinical part outlines the diagnostic applications of the three MRI techniques for the early detection and localization of prostate cancer, staging, and the identification of recurrent cancer and discusses the most recent publications in this field. The review concludes with a look at emerging clinical applications such as the evaluation of biological aggressiveness and tumor volume. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Trotz bislang unbefriedigender Enttabuisierung des Themas "erektile Dysfunktion" (ED erlangt Sexualität zunehmende Bedeutung in unserer Gesellschaft. Der Kontrast besteht im entsexualisierten Beziehungsalltag und der mit Sexualreizen vollgestopften Außen- und Medienwelt. Die Tatsache, daß die ED einerseits organisch und/oder psychisch begründet sein kann, aber die Fokussierung des Problems meist nicht im Zusammenhang gesehen wird, veranlaßt zu einer intensiven Kooperation von Schulmedizin und Psychotherapie. Es handelt sich dabei um ein Konzept, dessen Grundgedanke ein Faktum ist, nämlich, daß sich organische Funktionsstörungen von kognitiven Prozessen nicht trennen lassen. Schulmedizinische Diagnostik und Therapie wird nur dann von bleibendem Erfolg besetzt sein, wenn die ED in ihrer ganzen Komplexität wahrgenommen wird, indem die Beziehung und die Sexualität des Betroffenen miteinbezogen werden. Symptome - welcher Art auch immer - können aus psychotherapeutischer Sicht als zwischenmenschliches Kommunikationsverhalten betrachtet und behandelt werden. Das Konzept einer gleichwertigen Kooperation zwischen Schulmedizin und Psychotherapie wird im folgenden vorgestellt und diskutiert.

    Despite the progress, which has been made in diagnosis and therapy of encephalitis and bacterial meningitis, these acute inflammatory diseases of the brain still display a certain amount of morbidity and mortality. History, physical examination, analysis of serum and cerebrospinal fluid and radiological examination are the mainstay for the diagnosis of these diseases. With respect to the acute inflammatory diseases of the brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging fulfil three purposes: 1. They can be used to clarify the diagnosis and to rule out other diseases. 2. They can identify the focus from which a bacterial meningitis can evolve. 3. Complications like edema, cerebral vasculitis, septic sinus thrombosis, hydrocephalus or abscess can be visualized. If the diagnosis is made early, the possible complications are recognized in good time and the appropriate therapy is started immediately, then morbidity and mortality can be kept at a minimum.

[German] Die bakterielle Meningitis und die Enzephalitis sind akut-entzuendliche Hirnerkrankungen, die trotz aller Fortschritte in der Diagnostik und Therapie mit einer nicht unerheblichen Morbiditaet und Mortalitaet behaftet sind. Die Anamnese, die koerperliche Untersuchung, die laborchemische Diagnostik von Blut und Liquor und die Bildgebung sind die wesentlichen Saeulen in der Diagnostik akut-entzuendlicher Hirnerkrankungen. Die Bildgebung, die mittels Computertomographie bzw. Kernspintomographie erfolgt, hat in diesem Zusammenhang 3 Aufgaben: 1. Sie kann dazu beitragen, die Diagnose zu sichern bzw. differentialdiagnostisch in Erwaegung zu ziehende Erkrankungen auszuschliessen oder nachzuweisen. 2. Sie kann bei der bakteriellen Meningitis entzuendliche Foci im Bereich der Nasennebenhoehlen, des Mastoids oder des Mittelohrs erkennen, die sofort operativ saniert werden muessen. 3. Komplikationen akut-entzuendlicher Hirnerkrankungen koennen bei entsprechendem klinischem Verdacht mittels Bildgebung nachgewiesen werden. Hirnoedem, vaskulitische Infarkte, septische Sinusthrombose, Hydrozephalus oder Abszess stellen die wesentlichen Komplikationen dar, die zur Morbiditaet und Mortalitaet akut-entzuendlicher Hirnerkrankungen beitragen und die umgehend mit einer spezifischen Therapie angegangen werden muessen.

    Background: morbus ledderhose (ML) is a rare hyperproliferative disorder of the plantar aponeurosis which is similar in its clinical course to morbus dupuytren (MD). We examined whether radiotherapy (RT) can effect symptoms and prevent disease progression. Patients and methods: from June 1996 to December 2001, 25 patients (12 female/13 male) aged 9-76 (median: 56) years had radiotherapy (RT) for symptomatic ML. Follow-up (FU) was at least 1 year. 36 feet (16 right/20 left) were treated, as eleven patients had bilateral disease. Twelve (48%) patients had MD. There were 63 nodules (with 0,5-6,5 cm diameter) on all feet and 20 cords (with 1-4 cm length) on 13 (52%) feet prior to RT. 21 (84%) patients had one or more signs: 14 (56%) severe local pain, eight (32%) walking difficulties, twelve (48%) other symptoms, pressure or tension sensation. The RT field involved all nodules and cords plus safety margin. Two RT-series were applied (each 5 x 3 gy in 1 week) separated by 8-12 weeks up to a total dose of 30 gy. Evaluation was performed at the end of RT, after 3 and 12 months FU and in December 2002. The primary endpoint was prevention of disease progression and avoidance of surgery. Secondary endpoints were objective changes of morphological and functional parameters and patient's satisfaction measured on a visual analogue scale (VAS). Results: with a median FU of 38 (12-67) months no patient experienced progression or underwent surgery: 11 of 36 (44%) feet had a reduced number (overall: - 16) or size of nodules, 7 of 13 (54%) feet had a reduced number (overall: -9) or length of cords; gait was improved in six of twelve (50%) feet; pain was reduced or had completely disappeared in 9 of 15 (60%) feet, and other symptoms disappeared in 8 of 18 (44%) symptomatic feet. 20 (80%) patients regarded 28 of 36 (78%) treated feet as improved and 8 (22%) in stable condition. The median relative improvement stated by patients on the VAS was 50% (0-100%). Treatment side effects were minimal: during and within 3 months of the RT course only a slight erythema (CTC 1 ) was seen in five treated lesions, while dry skin changes within the RT portal were observed in three cases (11%) in long term FU (> 12 months). Conclusions: radiotherapy is effective in treating ML and may prevent otherwise necessary surgical interventions. Nodules, cords and symptoms regress, but long-term outcome of at least 5 years has to be awaited. Prospective phase III studies should confirm these results. (orig.) [German] Hintergrund: Der morbus ledderhose (ML) ist eine hyperproliferative Erkrankung der Plantaraponeurose, die dem morbus dupuytren (MD) sehr aehnlich ist. Wir prueften, ob eine Bestrahlung die Symptome lindern und die Progression der Erkrankung aufhalten kann. Patienten und Methoden: Von Juni 1996 bis Dezember 2002 wurden zwoelf Frauen und 13 Maenner im Alter von 9-76 (median 56) Jahren mit symptomatischem ML bestrahlt und mindestens 1 Jahr kontrolliert. Insgesamt wurden 36 Fuesse (16 rechts, 20 links) bestrahlt, da elf Patienten beidseits einen Befall hatten. Zwoelf (48%) Patienten hatten auch einen MD. An 36 Fuessen lagen 63 Knoten (mit 0,5-6,5 cm Groesse) und an 13 (52%) Fuessen 20 Straenge (mit 1-4 cm Laenge) vor. Zusaetzlich bestanden 14-mai (56%) starke Fussschmerzen, achtmal (32%) Probleme beim Laufen, zwoelfmal (48%) andere Symptome (Druck, Schwellung, Spannung). Die Orthovolt-Radiotherapie erfasste alle tastbaren Knoten und Straenge. Es wurden zwei Serien zu je 5 x 3 Gy pro Woche (gesamt: 30 Gy) im Abstand von 8-12 Wochen gegeben. Die Auswertung erfolgte am Ende der RT, nach 3 und 12 Monaten und zuletzt im Dezember 2002. Primaerer Endpunkt war die Vermeidung einer Progression bzw. Operation; sekundaere Endpunkte waren mehrere objektive morphologisch-funktionelle sowie subjektive Parameter (visuelle analogskala (VAS)). Ergebnisse: Nach 38 (12-67) Monaten medianem FU war kein Fuss progredient oder musste operiert werden. Bei 11 von 36 (44%) Fuessen nahm die Zahl (minus 16) oder die Groesse der Knoten und bei 7 von 13 (54%) Fuessen die Zahl (-9) oder die Laenge der Straenge ab; normale Gehfunktion erreichten sechs von zwoelf (50%) Fuessen; die Schmerzen verschwanden ganz oder teilweise bei 9 von 15 (60%) Fuessen, die uebrigen Symptome verschwanden bei 8 von 18 (44%) Fuessen. Fuer 28 von 36 (78%) Fuessen gaben 20 (80%) Patienten eine Besserung an, die uebrigen blieben stabil. Die Verbesserung erreichte im Median 50% (0-100%) auf der VAS. Die Nebenwirkungen waren insgesamt gering: Waehrend und bis zu 3 Monaten nach der RT hatten fuenf (14%) Fuesse eine leichte Hautroetung (CTC 1 ) im RT-Feld; bei drei (8%) Fuessen blieb die Haut langfristig (> 12 Monate) trocken. Schlussfolgerungen: Die Bestrahlung ist bei ML wirksam und sollte noch vor einer Operation eingesetzt werden. Knoten, Straenge und Symptome koennen sich zurueckbilden. Langzeitstudien und prospektive multizentrische Studien muessen diese Resultate noch bestaetigen. (orig.)

    2016-07-01

    We propose the unimodular-mimetic F(R) gravity theory, to resolve cosmological constant problem and dark matter problem in a unified geometric manner. We demonstrate that such a theory naturally admits accelerating universe evolution. Furthermore, we construct unimodular-mimetic F(R) inflationary cosmological scenarios compatible with the Planck and BICEP2/Keck-Array observational data. We also address the graceful exit issue, which is guaranteed by the existence of unstable de Sitter vacua.

    2016-10-01

    Without reference to exotic sources construction of viable wormholes in Einstein’s general relativity remained ever a myth. With the advent of modified theories, however, specifically the f(R) theory, new hopes arose for the possibility of such objects. From this token, we construct traversable wormholes in f(R) theory supported by a fluid source which respects at least the weak energy conditions. We provide an example (Example 1) of asymptotically flat wormhole in f(R) gravity without ghosts.

    2017-08-15

    The scalar-tensor f(R) theory of gravity is considered in the framework of a simple inhomogeneous space-time model. In this research we use the reconstruction technique to look for possible evolving wormhole solutions within viable f(R) gravity formalism. These f(R) models are then constrained so that they are consistent with existing experimental data. Energy conditions related to the matter threading the wormhole are analyzed graphically and are in general found to obey the null energy conditions (NEC) in regions around the throat, while in the limit f(R) = R, NEC can be violated at large in regions around the throat.

  9. FR Cnc revisited: photometry, polarimetry and spectroscopy

    This paper is part of a multiwavelength study aimed at using complementary photometric, polarimetric and spectroscopic data to achieve an understanding of the activity process in late-type stars. Here, we present the study of FR Cnc, a young, active and spotted star. We performed analysis of All Sky Automated Survey 3 (ASAS-3) data for the years 2002-08 and amended the value of the rotational period to be 0.826518 d. The amplitude of photometric variations decreased abruptly in the year 2005, while the mean brightness remained the same, which was interpreted as a quick redistribution of spots. BVRC and IC broad-band photometric calibration was performed for 166 stars in FR Cnc vicinity. The photometry at Terskol Observatory shows two brightening episodes, one of which occurred at the same phase as the flare of 2006 November 23. Polarimetric BVR observations indicate the probable presence of a supplementary source of polarization. We monitored FR Cnc spectroscopically during the years 2004-08. We concluded that the radial velocity changes cannot be explained by the binary nature of FR Cnc. We determined the spectral type of FR Cnc as K7V. Calculated galactic space-velocity components (U, V, W) indicate that FR Cnc belongs to the young disc population and might also belong to the IC 2391 moving group. Based on Li Iλ6707.8 measurement, we estimated the age of FR Cnc to be between 10 and 120 Myr. Doppler tomography was applied to create a starspot image of FR Cnc. We optimized the goodness of fit to the deconvolved profiles for axial inclination, equivalent width and v sin i, finding v sin i=46.2 km s-1 and i= 55°. We also generated a synthetic V-band light curve based on Doppler imaging that makes simultaneous use of spectroscopic and photometric data. This synthetic light curve displays the same morphology and amplitude as the observed one. The starspot distribution of FR Cnc is also of interest since it is one of the latest spectral types to have been imaged. No

  6. f(R) gravity and chameleon theories

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Brax, Philippe; Bruck, Carsten van de; Davis, Anne-Christine; Shaw, Douglas J.

    2008-01-01

    We analyze f(R) modifications of Einstein's gravity as dark energy models in the light of their connection with chameleon theories. Formulated as scalar-tensor theories, the f(R) theories imply the existence of a strong coupling of the scalar field to matter. This would violate all experimental gravitational tests on deviations from Newton's law. Fortunately, the existence of a matter dependent mass and a thin-shell effect allows one to alleviate these constraints. The thin-shell condition also implies strong restrictions on the cosmological dynamics of the f(R) theories. As a consequence, we find that the equation of state of dark energy is constrained to be extremely close to -1 in the recent past. We also examine the potential effects of f(R) theories in the context of the Eoet-wash experiments. We show that the requirement of a thin shell for the test bodies is not enough to guarantee a null result on deviations from Newton's law. As long as dark energy accounts for a sizeable fraction of the total energy density of the Universe, the constraints that we deduce also forbid any measurable deviation of the dark energy equation of state from -1. All in all, we find that both cosmological and laboratory tests imply that f(R) models are almost coincident with a ΛCDM model at the background level.

    The level structures of 211 Fr, 212 Fr and 213 Fr have been observed to high spins, approx. 28(h/2π) (and excitation energies approx. 8 MeV) using a variety of gamma-ray spectroscopic techniques. The structure of these nuclides is discussed in terms of couplings of single particle states through empirical shell model calculations. Good agreement with experiment is obtained. In 212 Fr and 213 Fr core-excited configurations are required to explain the properties of the highest states. A number of long lived states were observed in each nucleus some of which decay by by enhanced E3 transitions. The E3 transition strengths are discussed

    1997-01-01

    The $\\gamma$-rays following the $\\beta^{-}$-decay of $^{227}$Rn have been investigated by means of $\\gamma$-ray singles and $\\gamma\\gamma$-coincidence measurements using an array of 12 Compton-suppressed Ge detectors. The fast timing $\\beta\\gamma\\gamma$(t) method has been used to measure six level lifetimes. Multipolarities of 32 transitions in $^{227}$Fr have been established by measuring conversion electrons with a mini--orange electron spectrometer. Most of the observed transitions have been placed in a level scheme comprising 38 excited states of $^{227}$Fr. The low-lying levels are interpreted in terms of seven rotational bands. The observed E1 strengths for two transitions connecting the K$^{\\pi}$=3/2 bands are consistent with the transitional character of $^{227}$Fr, and confirm the presence of octupole correlations in this nucleus.

    This report explains some results of the multidimensional evaluation on various fast reactor cycle system concepts from an interim report of the 2nd phase of ''Feasibility Study on Commercialized FR Cycle System''. This method is designed to give more objective and more quantitative evaluations to clarify commercialized system candidate concepts. Here we brief current evaluation method from the five viewpoints of safety, economy, environment, resource and non-proliferation, with some trial evaluation results for some cycles consist of promising technologies in reactor, core and fuel, reprocessing and fuel manufacture. Moreover, we describe FR cycle deployment scenarios which describe advantages and disadvantages of the cycles from the viewpoints of uranium resource and radioactive waste based on long-term nuclear material mass flow analyses and advantages of the deployment of FR cycle itself from the viewpoints of the comparison with alternative power supplies as well as cost and benefit.

  12. FRIICAT: A FIRST catalog of FR II radio galaxies

    Science.gov (United States)

    Capetti, A.; Massaro, F.; Baldi, R. D.

    2017-05-01

    Aims: We built a catalog of 122 FR II radio galaxies, called FRIICAT, selected from a published sample obtained by combining observations from the NVSS, FIRST, and SDSS surveys. The catalog includes sources with redshift ≤ 0.15, an edge-brightened radio morphology, and those with at least one of the emission peaks located at radius r larger than 30 kpc from the center of the host. Methods: The radio luminosity at 1.4 GHz of the FRIICAT sources covers the range L1.4 1039.5-1042.5erg s-1. The FRIICAT catalog has 90% of low and 10% of high excitation galaxies (LEGs and HEGs), respectively. The properties of these two classes are significantly different. The FRIICAT LEGs are mostly luminous (-20 ≳ Mr ≳ -24), red early-type galaxies with black hole masses in the range 108 ≲ MBH ≲ 109M⊙; they are essentially indistinguishable from the FR Is belonging to the FRICAT. The HEG FR IIs are associated with optically bluer and mid-IR redder hosts than the LEG FR IIs and to galaxies and black holes that are smaller, on average, by a factor 2. Results: FR IIs have a factor 3 higher average radio luminosity than FR Is. Nonetheless, most ( 90%) of the selected FR IIs have a radio power that is lower, by as much as a factor of 100, than the transition value between FR Is and FR IIs found in the 3C sample. The correspondence between the morphological classification of FR I and FR II and the separation in radio power disappears when including sources selected at low radio flux thresholds, which is in line with previous results. In conclusion, a radio source produced by a low power jet can be edge brightened or edge darkened, and the outcome is not related to differences in the optical properties of the host galaxy.

As a polygonal curve is a complex, this generalizes the regular notion of weak Fr\\'echet distance between curves. We also generalize the algorithm to handle an input of k simplicial complexes. Using this new algorithm we can solve a slew of new problems, from computing a me...

    2011-12-01

    Results obtained from measuring optical and physical properties of handsheets showed that in all treatments at the same peroxide charge, non-simultaneous addition of chemicalswithpretreatment (process 3 caused better improvement in brightness and density of the paper. Also opacity، yellowness and caliper were lower in this process than the others. To reach a given brightness, hydrogen peroxide can be decreased. Therefore, by using the modified bleaching process we can economize on consumption of chemicals, by decreasing peroxide and alkali consumption at 1% and 23.8% to reach a given brightness. Also, COD load in this process at both levels of peroxide was lower than the other processes and therefore, it may decrease environmental contamination and effluent treatment requirement.

    2015-01-01

    Results are presented from experimental studies of the initiation of combustion in a stoichiometric methane–oxygen mixture by a freely localized laser spark and by a high-current multispark discharge in a closed chamber. It is shown that, preceding the stage of ‘explosive’ inflammation of a gas mixture, there appear two luminous objects moving away from the initiator along an axis: a relatively fast and uniform wave of ‘incomplete combustion’ under laser spark ignition and a wave with a brightly glowing plasmoid behind under ignition from high-current slipping surface discharge. The gas mixtures in both the ‘preflame’ and developed-flame states are characterized by a high degree of ionization as the result of chemical ionization (plasma density ne≈1012 cm−3) and a high frequency of electron–neutral collisions (νen≈1012 s−1). The role of chemical ionization in constructing an adequate theory for the ignition of a gas mixture is discussed. The feasibility of the microwave heating of both the preflame and developed-flame plasma, supplementary to a chemical energy source, is also discussed. PMID:26170426

    The models of f(R) gravity belong to an important class of modified gravity models where the late time cosmic accelerated expansion is considered as the manifestation of the large scale modification of the force of gravity. f(R) gravity models can be expressed in terms of a scalar degree of freedom by explicit redefinition of model's variable. Here we report about the study of the features of cosmological parameters and hence the cosmological evolution using the scalar degree of freedom of the f(R) = ξR n gravity model in the Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) background

  13. Effective Dark Matter Halo Catalog in f(R) Gravity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    He, Jian-Hua; Hawken, Adam J; Li, Baojiu; Guzzo, Luigi

    2015-08-14

    We introduce the idea of an effective dark matter halo catalog in f(R) gravity, which is built using the effective density field. Using a suite of high resolution N-body simulations, we find that the dynamical properties of halos, such as the distribution of density, velocity dispersion, specific angular momentum and spin, in the effective catalog of f(R) gravity closely mimic those in the cold dark matter model with a cosmological constant (ΛCDM). Thus, when using effective halos, an f(R) model can be viewed as a ΛCDM model. This effective catalog therefore provides a convenient way for studying the baryonic physics, the galaxy halo occupation distribution and even semianalytical galaxy formation in f(R) cosmologies.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Capozziello, Salvatore; Faizal, Mir; Hameeda, Mir; Pourhassan, Behnam; Salzano, Vincenzo; Upadhyay, Sudhaker

    2018-02-01

    Based on thermodynamics, we discuss the galactic clustering of expanding Universe by assuming the gravitational interaction through the modified Newton's potential given by f(R) gravity. We compute the corrected N-particle partition function analytically. The corrected partition function leads to more exact equations of state of the system. By assuming that the system follows quasi-equilibrium, we derive the exact distribution function that exhibits the f(R) correction. Moreover, we evaluate the critical temperature and discuss the stability of the system. We observe the effects of correction of f(R) gravity on the power-law behaviour of particle-particle correlation function also. In order to check the feasibility of an f(R) gravity approach to the clustering of galaxies, we compare our results with an observational galaxy cluster catalogue.

    We investigate the corresponding relation between f(R) gravity and holographic dark energy. We introduce a type of energy density from f(R) that has the same role as holographic dark energy. We obtain the differential equation that specifies the evolution of the introduced energy density parameter based on a varying gravitational constant. We discover the relation for the equation of state parameter for low redshifts that contains varying G correction.

We investigate whether such F(R) gravity can have the antigravity regions where the Weyl curvature invariant does not diverge at the Big Bang and Big Crunch singularities. It is revealed that the divergence cannot be evaded completely but can be much milder than that in the original Weyl invariant two scalar field theory.

    We study the shortcut Fr\\'{e}chet distance, a natural variant of the Fr\\'{e}chet distance, that allows us to take shortcuts from and to any point along one of the curves. The classic Fr\\'echet distance is a bottle-neck distance measure and hence quite sensitive to outliers. The shortcut Fr\\'{e}chet distance allows us to cut across outliers and hence produces significantly more meaningful results when dealing with real world data.

  16. Dirac Quasinormal Modes of Static f(R) de Sitter Black Holes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ma, Hong

    2018-02-01

    Quasinormal modes (QNMs) for Dirac perturbations of f(R) black holes (BHs) are described in this paper, involving two types of f(R) solution: f(R) (Schwarzschild) BHs and f(R) (Maxwell) BHs. With the finite difference method, the stability of the f(R) black holes (BHs) is analysed and the threshold range of f(R) (Schwarzschild) BHs and f(R) (Maxwell) BHs is defined respectively. The results show that due to the presence of the correction factor R0, the damping rate of Dirac field decreases. Meanwhile, the influence of angular quantum number values |k| on the f(R) BHs is investigated. The results indicate that the QNMs oscillation becomes tenser and damping speed slowly decreases with |k| increasing. Furthermore, under the Dirac perturbation, the stability of f(R) solutions can be reflected in the manner of Dirac QNMs. The relationships between the QNMs and the parameters (|k|, charge Q and mass m) are discussed in massless, and massive cases, by contrast to the classical BHs.

    Obwohl subklinische Enthesiopathie ein gut etabliertes diagnostisches Merkmal der Psoriasisarthritis (PsA) ist, wird sie häufig übersehen, da viele Patienten asymptomatisch sind. Gäbe es klinische Hinweise auf das Vorliegen einer Enthesiopathie, würde dies den Klinikern die Möglichkeit eröffnen, eine PsA frühzeitig zu diagnostizieren. Es wurde eine monozentrische prospektive Studie mit insgesamt 90 Psoriasis-Patienten durchgeführt, um mittels Ultraschall das Vorliegen von Enthesenanomalien zu untersuchen und eine Korrelation mit dem Befall der Nägel festzustellen. Enthesenanomalien wurden bei 23 Patienten (25,5 %) gefunden, von denen 19 (82,6 %) Nagelbefall aufwiesen. Bei 4 Patienten waren die Nägel nicht betroffen. Enthesiopathie lag bei 31,1 % (19/61) der Patienten mit Onychopathie vor, von den Patienten ohne Nagelbefall litten nur 13,8 % (4/29) an Enthesiopathie (p = 0,07). Zwischen dem Target-NAPSI-Score und dem Vorliegen einer Enthesiopathie bestand eine signifikante Korrelation. Eine signifikante Korrelation bestand darüber hinaus auch zwischen dem Vorliegen einer Enthesiopathie und der Anzahl der betroffenen Nägel (p = 0,035). Klinische Belege für eine Onychopathie können der Schlüssel für die frühe Diagnose einer Enthesiopathie bei Psoriasis-Patienten sein. © 2016 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG).

It examines how far the forecasts of regional air quality in Europe are affected by the choice of boundary conditions. The focus of this report is to analyze the influence of different boundary conditions on the calculated soil concentrations of ozone and PM10. A model evaluation, however, was not the aim of this study. [German] In diesem Bericht wird die Koppelung eines Globalmodells mit einem kontinentalen Modell vorgestellt.

Voraussetzung ist die rechtzeitige Übernahme der Betreuung gefährdeter Patienten durch einen in der speziellen rheumatologischen Diagnostik und Therapie bewanderten Arzt. Dieser muß das gesamte Repertoire der Arthritistherapie (Medikamente, ergotherapeutische und physiotherapeutische Maßnahmen, Patientenaufklärung etc. entsprechend dem „State of the Art“ beherrschen. In den letzten Jahren erfolgte in vielen Ländern die Etablierung von Spezialeinrichtungen für Patienten mit früher Arthritis.

    The previously introduced class of two-parametric phenomenological inflationary models in general relativity in which the slow-roll assumption is replaced by the more general, constant-roll condition is generalized to the case of f(R) gravity. A simple constant-roll condition is defined in the original Jordan frame, and exact expressions for a scalaron potential in the Einstein frame, for a function f(R) (in the parametric form) and for inflationary dynamics are obtained. The region of the model parameters permitted by the latest observational constraints on the scalar spectral index and the tensor-to-scalar ratio of primordial metric perturbations generated during inflation is determined.

  5. Development of Streptomyces sp. FR-008 as an emerging chassis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available Microbial-derived natural products are important in both the pharmaceutical industry and academic research. As the metabolic potential of original producer especially Streptomyces is often limited by slow growth rate, complicated cultivation profile, and unfeasible genetic manipulation, so exploring a Streptomyces as a super industrial chassis is valuable and urgent. Streptomyces sp. FR-008 is a fast-growing microorganism and can also produce a considerable amount of macrolide candicidin via modular polyketide synthase. In this study, we evaluated Streptomyces sp. FR-008 as a potential industrial-production chassis. First, PacBio sequencing and transcriptome analyses indicated that the Streptomyces sp. FR-008 genome size is 7.26 Mb, which represents one of the smallest of currently sequenced Streptomyces genomes. In addition, we simplified the conjugation procedure without heat-shock and pre-germination treatments but with high conjugation efficiency, suggesting it is inherently capable of accepting heterologous DNA. In addition, a series of promoters selected from literatures was assessed based on GusA activity in Streptomyces sp. FR-008. Compared with the common used promoter ermE*-p, the strength of these promoters comprise a library with a constitutive range of 60–860%, thus providing the useful regulatory elements for future genetic engineering purpose. In order to minimum the genome, we also target deleted three endogenous polyketide synthase (PKS gene clusters to generate a mutant LQ3. LQ3 is thus an “updated” version of Streptomyces sp. FR-008, producing fewer secondary metabolites profiles than Streptomyces sp. FR-008. We believe this work could facilitate further development of Streptomyces sp. FR-008 for use in biotechnological applications.

Materials and Methods: Six patients with suspicious focal lesions in various anatomic regions underwent percutanous biopsy in a high-field MR system (1.5 T, Magnetom Espree, Siemens) using a new MR-compatible assistance system (Innomotion). The procedures were planned and guided using T1-weighted FLASH and TrueFISP sequences. A servopneumatic drive then moved the guiding arm automatically to the insertion point. An MRI compatible 15G biopsy system (Somatex) was introduced by a physician guided by the needle holder and multiple biopsies were performed using the coaxial technique. The feasibility, duration of the intervention and biopsy findings were analyzed. Results: The proposed new system allows accurate punctures in a high-field MR system. The assistance device did not interfere with the image quality, and guided the needle virtually exactly as planned. Histological examination could be conducted on every patient. The lesion was malignant in four cases, and an infectious etiology was diagnosed for the two remaining lesions. Regarding the differentiation of anatomical and pathological structures and position monitoring of the insertion needle, TrueFISP images are to be given preference. The average intervention time was 41 minutes. Lesions up to 15.4 cm beneath the skin surface were punctured. Conclusion: The proposed MR-guided assistance system can be successfully utilized in a high-field MR system for accurate punctures of even deep lesions in various anatomic regions. (orig.)

    Purpose: to evaluate the technical and clinical success rates of percutaneous stent revascularization in the treatment of chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI). Patients and methods: 17 patients (12 female) with typical symptoms of CMI were treated by percutaneous stent placement for stenoses of the splanchnic arteries (celiac trunk; superior mesenteric artery, SMA; inferior mesenteric artery, IMA). The primary and secondary technical success, primary and secondary clinical success, and the long-term clinical outcome were determined. Results: a total of 24 stents were implanted in 21 splanchnic arteries (12 stents in the celiac trunk, 11 in the SMA and 1 in the IMA). The primary technical success rate was 91% (19/21 arteries), the secondary technical success rate was 95% (21/22 arteries). Clinical follow-up was available for 16 patients. The primary clinical success rate was 81% (13/16 patients). Following two secondary interventions, the secondary clinical success rate was 94% (15/16 patients). Long-term clinical success was achieved in 15 of 16 patients (94%) with a mean follow-up of 26 months. One patient died within 30 days of the intervention and two patients demonstrated major complications (1 dissection, 1 stent dislocation). None of the patients required surgical revascularization and none of the patients died due to recurrent mesenteric ischemia. (orig.)

    This paper discusses the diagnostic yield of multislice computed tomography (MSCT) in inflammatory bowel disease. Contrast media are administered intraluminally (colon, small intestine) and intravenously (triple contrast CT).Filling of small bowel is achieved by means of jejunal tube (''Sellink CT'') or via the oral route. Pharmacological relaxation of the intestine decreases motion artifact. Intraluminal contrast media consist of either hyperdense, ''positive'' or hypodense, ''negative'' liquids. Thin-slice MSCT of the entire abdomen allows high-quality post processing (MPR, thin-slice MIP). Due to superior distension, Sellink CT improves estimation of stenosis or changes in thickness and contrast of bowel wall.Positive contrast is superior in the detection and preoperative localization of abscess, fistula or conglomerate tumour, because it accurately differentiates between intra- and extraluminal structures.However, negative contrast facilitates quantitative evaluation of bowel wall thickening or enhancement and demonstrates gastrointestinal bleeding. MSCT of the small intestine is superior to conventional enteroclysis, especially in the diagnosis of mesenterial or other extraintestinal disease. As a side effect, the colon is assessed in the same examination. Radiation dose is less in MSCT (7.8-13.3 mSv) than in conventional fluoroscopy (13.99{+-}7.57 mSv). MSCT can be performed as an alternative or adjunct to colonoscopy, if endoscopic access is restricted. It is already the imaging modality of choice in acute diverticulitis. (orig.) [German] Zielsetzung Die vorliegende Arbeit betrachtet die Aussagekraft der Mehrschichtspiral-CT (MSCT) fuer die Diagnostik entzuendlicher Darmerkrankungen.Methodik Die Kontrastierung erfolgt an Duenn- und Dickdarm kombiniert mit intravenoesem Kontrast (Tripel-Kontrast-CT). Die Duenndarmfuellung kann mittels Jejunalsonde (Sellink-CT) oder oral erfolgen, zusaetzlich erfolgt eine medikamentoese Relaxation. Die Darmkontrastierung kann mit positivem hyperdensem oder negativem hypodensem Kontrastmittel (KM) erfolgen.Ergebnisse Die MSCT gestattet die Duennschichtuntersuchung des gesamten Abdomens, MPR- und MIP-Duennschichtrekonstruktionen hoher Qualitaet werden ermoeglicht. Das Sellink-CT ermoeglicht aufgrund ueberlegener Darmdistension die bessere Beurteilbarkeit von Stenosierungen oder Darmwandveraenderungen.Aufgrund sicherer Differenzierung zwischen Intra- und Extraluminalraum eignet sich positives KM zum Nachweis von Abszessen, Fisteln,Konglomerattumoren und zur OP-Vorbereitung. Negatives KM erleichtert die quantitative Auswertung von Darmwandverdickung und -enhancement sowie den Nachweis einer gastrointestinalen Blutung.Diskussion In der Duenndarmdiagnostik zeigt die CT deutliche Vorteile gegenueber dem konventionellen Enteroklysma bei der Diagnostik mesenterialer und extraintestinaler Komplikationen, zusaetzlich wird der Kolonrahmen mit erfasst.Die Strahlendosis liegt bei der CT niedriger (7,8-13,3 mSv) als beim Enteroklysma (13,99{+-}7,57 mSv). Die CT bietet sich als Alternative bei undurchfuehrbarer Koloskopie an, in der Notfalldiagnostik (Divertikulitis) hat sie sich bereits etabliert. (orig.)

    Purpose: To evaluate the clinical value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the uterus and the pelvis in infertile female with symptomatic endometriosis for the assessment of uterine morphology and function. Materials and Methods: Forty-one infertile women (mean age: 33.2 years) with symptomatic endometriosis documented by laparoscopy were evaluated with highfield MRI (Sonata, Siemens) using T2- and T1-weighted sequences. In addition, the patients underwent hysterosalpingoscintigraphy (HSSG) for evaluation of the uterotubal transport capacity. Pathologic findings of the uterine junction zone were correlated with the laparoscopic results, clinical symptoms and uterotubal transport capacity. Results: Adenomyosis was diagnosed on T2-weighted MR-images in 35 (85.4%) patients (focal adenomatosis in 26 patients and diffuse adenomatosis in 9). Patients showing signs of adenomyosis tended to be older than patients without adenomyosis (mean age 34.1 years vs. 30.1 years) and showed a longer history of symptomatic endometriosis. A positive transport capacity in HSSG was observed in 73.1% (19/26) of the patients with focal adenomyosis and only 22.2% (2/9) of patients with diffuse adenomyosis. In 83.3% (5/6) of the patients without signs of adenomyosis, a positive uterotubal transport was documented. Conclusion: MRI of the uterus is a helpful diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of adenomyosis and for planning further therapies. Patients with the diagnosis of adenomyosis showed a reduced uterotubal transport capacity that depended on the severity of adenomyotic changes and might be a possible cause of infertility. (orig.)

    A radioimmunoassay for immune reactive PTH in human blood serum has been developed and optimized. The method described is capable of largely safely discriminating increased PTH concentrations from normal values. For the group of patients suffering from hypoparathyroidism, the PTH values in the blood serum have been found to be generally lower, but quite an overlapping of lower values and values at the lower normal limit has been stated at the same time. Subsequent to an oral administration of phosphate in an acute experiment, so following a calcium-deficient diet taken over 24 hours, an increase in immune reactive PTH in the serum could be detected. The part of this thesis dealing with the method of treatment thoroughly discussed the various steps of optimization of the assay on the basis of extensive experimental data collected by the author. It presents a detailed assessment of current knowledge on, efficiency of and problems involved in PTH determination by radioimmunoassay.

    From 1984 to 1994, 85 patients with painful osteoarthritis were treated. The mean follow-up was 4 (1 to 10) years. Seventy-three patients (103 joints) were available for long-term analysis: 17 patients (27 joints) with omarthrosis, 19 (20 joints) with rhizarthrosis, 31 (49 joints) with osteoarthritis of the knee and 6 patients (7 joints) with osteoarthritis of the hip. All patients were intensively pretreated over long time. Mean symptom duration prior to radiotherapy was 4 (1 to 10) years. Orthovoltage or linac photons were applied using some technical modifications depending upon the joint. Two radiotherapy series (6 x 1 Gy, total dose: 12 Gy, 3 weekly fractions) were prescribed. The interval between the 2 series was 6 weeks. The subjective pain profil was assessed prior to and 6 months after radiotherapy and at last follow-up. Forty-six (63%) patients (64 joints) achieved a reduction of pain symptoms; 16 of those had a `major pain relief` and 14 `complete pain relief`. Large joints - knee and hip - responded better (64% each) than the rhizarthrosis (53%). All pain categories and grades and their combined pain score were significantly reduced. The pain reduction was mostly pronounced for the symptom `pain at rest`. The orthopedic score correlated well with the subjective response of the patients. The thumb score improved in 11 (57%) joints, the shoulder score of Constant and Murley in 16 (59%), the Japonese knee score of Sasaki et al. in 33 (67%), the hip score of Harris in 5 (71%) joints. Only 9 of 19 patients which were treated to avoid surgery, had to be operated, and 3 of those received a total arthroplasty of the hip or knee. In multivariate analysis for the endpoint `complete` or `major pain relief` only the criterion `symptom duration {>=}2 years prior to radiotherapy` was an independent negative prognostic parameter. (orig./MG) [Deutsch] Von 1984 bis 1994 wurden 85 Patienten wegen schmerzhaft arthrotischer Gelenkerkrankungen bestrahlt. 73 Patienten (103 Gelenke) konnten langfristig untersucht werden, 17 Patienten mit Omarthrose (27 Gelenke), 19 mit Rhizarthrose (20 Gelenke), 31 mit Gonarthrose (49 Gelenke) und sechs Patienten mit Koxarthrose (sieben Gelenke). Die Patienten waren lange und intensiv vorbehandelt mit einer mittleren Symptomdauer von vier Jahren. Die Strahlentherapie erfolgte je nach Gelenk mit geringen technischen Unterschieden in zwei Serien (6 x 0,5 bzw. 1 Gy pro Serie in drei Fraktionen pro Woche). Die zweite Serie erfolgte sechs Wochen nach der ersten. Die mittlere Nachbeobachtungszeit betrug vier (ein bis zehn) Jahre. Vor Radiotherapie, sechs Monate danach und zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt wurde das Schmerzprofil beurteilt. 46 (63%) Patienten (64 Gelenke) sprachen auf die Therapie an; 16 dieser Patienten waren `wesentlich gebessert`, 14 `beschwerdefrei`, Knie und Schulter sprachen besser an (je 64%) als die Rhizarthrose (53%). Alle Schmerzkategorien und -grade und deren Summenscore waren ruecklaeufig. Der staerkste Rueckgang trat bei `Ruheschmerzen` ein. Alle orthopaedischen Scores korrelierten gut mit den subjektiven Angaben der Patienten. Der Daumenscore besserte sich bei elf Faellen (57%), der Schulter-Score nach Constant et al. bei 16 (59%), der Knie-Score nach Sasaki et al. bei 33 (67%), der Hueft-Score nach Harris bei fuenf (71%). 9/19 Faelle, die zur Vermeidung der Operation bestrahlt wurden, mussten operiert werden, drei davon mit Totalendoprothese. In multivariater Analyse fuer das Zielkriterium `komplette Beschwerdefreiheit` bzw. `wesentliche Besserung` der Beschwerden war die lange Symtomdauer einziger Parameter mit negativer prognostischer Bedeutung.

    Intracranial arterial aneurysms (IAAs) are rare in children. Nevertheless, IAAs account for at least 10 % - 15 % of hemorrhagic strokes during the first two decades of life. Traditional vascular risk factors, which are common in the adult population, are generally absent in the pediatric population, engendering distinct modes of IAA pathogenesis. Classification of pediatric IAAs according to the pathogenetic mechanism shows eight distinct categories: idiopathic, traumatic, those due to excessive hemodynamic stress, vasculopathic, infectious, noninfectious inflammatory, oncotic, and familial. Pathogenetic mechanism is the best predictor of the clinical course of the disease, response to treatment, and long-term prognosis. The pathogenetic subtypes of pediatric IAA show characteristic and variably overlapping features. In most cases, IAAs manifesting during the first two decades of life are idiopathic. IAAs that are idiopathic, traumatic (second most common type), or due to excessive hemodynamic stresses (third most common type) account for more than 80 % of IAAs in the pediatric age group. Most of the remaining pediatric IAAs are the result of congenital cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathies or infection. Multiple IAAs are unusual in young children except in those with acquired (secondary to immune deficiency states) or congenital cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathies or infectious IAAs. (orig.)

    Purpose: To evaluate CT-guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation of osteoid osteoma using internally cooled monopolar RF electrodes for technical success, complications and clinical long-term success. Materials and Methods: Between April 1999 and July 2009, 23 patients were treated under general anesthesia with CT-guided RF ablation using an internally cooled monopolar single RF electrode (Cool-tip, Valleylab, TycoHealthcare, Boulder, USA; active tip: 10 mm). For the removal of the nidus, we used either a manual or an automated drill. The technical success was evaluated by a CT scan (MSCT, Siemens Medical Solutions, Forchheim). The clinical long-term success was investigated by questioning patients prior to discharge, and after 6, 12 and 18 months. After 18 months, patients were interviewed on an annual basis. Results: The technical success rate was 100 %. The nidus was located in n = 19 cases at the lower extremity and in n = 4 cases at the upper extremity. Minor complications were observed for n = 2 patients. The mean hospitalization time was 1.5 d (1-2 d). The mean follow-up was 75.9 months (18-120 months) for n = 23 patients. No local recurrence was observed. One patient had intermediate pain one week after RF ablation without recurrent symptoms. Conclusion: CT-guided RF ablation using an internally cooled monopolar single RF electrode is an effective and safe minimally invasive method for the treatment of osteoid osteoma with excellent clinical long-term success.

    Full Text Available [english] Actinic keratosis is one of the most commonly treated skin conditions. A number of studies have recently been published on the treatment of this ailment using photodynamic therapy. The authors of this letter are concerned about the interpretation of some of these studies and would like to outline possible misinterpretations which may arise due to an incomplete analysis of the study reports available. Clearly, the “ideal” therapy for actinic keratosis should be a carefully chosen compromise between undesired side-effects and therapeutic efficacy and needs to be based on a consideration of all of the relevant clinical studies.[german] Aktinische Keratosen gehören zu den meistbehandelten Hautschäden. Eine Reihe der in den letzten Jahren veröffentlichten Studien beschäftigte sich mit ihrer Behandlung durch photodynamische Therapie. Die Bewertungen einiger dieser Studien veranlassten die Autoren dieses Briefes, mögliche Missinterpretationen der Daten herauszustellen, die infolge unvollständiger Analyse der einbezogenen Studienberichte und unvollständiger Berücksichtigung ihrer Randbedingungen auftreten können. Unbestritten ist dabei, dass die „ideale“ Therapie der aktinischen Keratose ein sorgfältig abgewogener Kompromiss zwischen therapeutischer Wirkung und unerwünschter Nebenwirkung sein muss, der auf der Berücksichtigung aller relevanten klinischen Studien und ihrer Randbedingungen basiert.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical relevance of HAMA following IS regarding allergic complications and in vivo effects on IS after repeated applications of Murine monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Out of over 800 immunoscintigraphic examinations performed during the last 5 years in our department 289 studies (in 190 patients) with up to 10 applications (13 different MAbs all together) were considered. Only 1 patient with a high HAMA titer developed a mild allergic reaction (local urticaria) after the 3rd application of an anti-CEA MAb. In 171 intensively documented serum courses following IS, 50 (29%) showed elevated HAMA (1st application: 25/108 (23%); 2nd application: 20/41 (49%); 3rd application: 5/11 (45%); 4th-10th application: no HAMA/11 (2 anti-CEA, 9 Antimyosin)). Only with strongly increased HAMA values (five times the value before 1st application) there was an altered biodistribution of the MAbs in IS with partially inhibited (8/25 studies with repeated applications) tumor localization. Some patients still demonstrated positive tumor localization despite a HAMA reaction. The problem of HAMA in the diagnostic work-up using MAbs is not the allergic reaction but the potential effects on IS in repeated studies. HAMA should be measured prior to repeated immunoscintigraphic studies. (orig./MG).

    Purpose: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of cranial CT under emergency conditions. Material and Methods: Four hundred cranial CT examinations (cerebrum, petrosal bone, fascial bone, sinuses, orbita) were evaluated retrospectively and correlated with the initial neurologic examination, the discharge and surgical diagnoses, and the results of other imaging modalities (conventional X-ray, MRI, angiography). The average age was 49 (2 to 89) years, with 42% male and 58% female patients. The discharge diagnosis was defined as the gold standard, assuming that clinical examinations and laboratory and imaging studies were maximized to establish the diagnosis, together with any possible surgery. Results: Overall sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic accuracy was 85%, 70% and 82% for cranial CT, 66%, 45% and 61% for the initial neurologic examination, 79% and 29% for acute cerebral infarction, and 65% and 13% for intracranial bleeding. Correlation of the CT diagnoses to the discharge and surgical diagnoses was high (82% and 80%, respectively; p < 0.01), to the diagnosis of conventional X-ray moderate and to the diagnoses of angiography and MRI unsatisfactory (74% and 68% and 60%, respectively; p > 0.05). Craniotomy was performed in 47 of 40 (12%) patients after cranial CT, within 12 hours in 29, in 12 to 2 hours in 8, and after 24 hours in 10 patients. The risk for intracranial bleeding in patients with a skull fracture was increased by factor of 3.3. Conclusion: The high diagnostic accuracy of cranial CT in establishing a precise, timely and reproducible diagnosis confirms the important role of CT as primary diagnostic method under emergency conditions. (orig.) [German] Ziel: Diagnostische Treffsicherheit der kranialen Computertomographie unter Notdienstbedingungen eines Krankenhauses der Maximalversorgung. Material und Methoden: Innerhalb des definierten Studienzeitraums (2 Jahre) wurden 400 kraniale Computertomographien (Neurokranium, Felsenbein, Gesichtsschaedel, Nasennebenhoehlen, Orbita) retrospektiv ausgewertet und zu neurologischer Initialuntersuchung, Operations-, und Entlassungsdiagnosen sowie begleitenden diagnostischen Verfahren (Konventionelle Roentgendiagnostik, MRT, Angiographie der hirnversorgenden Gefaesse) korreliert. Das durchschnittliche Alter betrug 49 Jahre (2-89), 42% der Patienten waren weiblichen, 58% maennlichen Geschlechts. Als Goldstandard wurde die Entlassungsdiagnose unter der Vorgabe definiert, dass zu diesem Zeitpunkt die notwendigen klinischen, laborchemischen und diagnostischen sowie ggf. operativen Verfahren durchgefuehrt wurden, um eine Diagnose hinreichend zu belegen. Ergebnisse: Sensitivitaet, Spezifitaet und diagnostische Treffsicherheit der kranialen Computertomographie in der Notdienstdiagnostik betrugen 85 bzw. 70 bzw. 82%, der neurologischen Initialuntersuchung bei der Diagnostik insgesamt 66 bzw. 45 bzw. 61%, bei einem frischen Hirninfarkt 79 bzw. 29% und einer intrazerebralen Blutung 65 bzw. 13%. Die Uebereinstimmung zu Entlassungs- und Operationsdiagnose war hoch (82 bzw. 80% p < 0,01). Die Uebereinstimmung der CT zur konventionellen Roentgendiagnostik war maessig, zur Angiographie und MRT unbefriedigend (74 bzw. 68 bzw. 60%; p > 0,05). 47/400 (12%) Patienten wurden im Anschluss an die kraniale Computertomographie operativ versorgr 29/47 in einem Zeitfenster < 12 h, 8/47 in einem Zeitfenster 12 - 24 h, 10/47 in einem Zeitfenster > 24 h. Das Risiko einer intrakraniellen Blutungskomplikation bei Patienten mit einer Schaedelkalotten- bzw. Schaedelbasis- bzw. Gesichtsschaedelfraktur zeigte sich um den Faktor 3,3 erhoeht. Schlussfolgerung: Die hohe diagnostische Praezision bestaetigt den Stellwert der kranialen Computertomographie als schnelles, praezises und reproduzierbares diagnostisches Verfahren der ersten Wahl in der Notdienstdiagnostik.

Materials and methods: this is a prospective single-center case study of 80 consecutively treated patients, followed for 3-6 months (group I), 7-12 months, (group II), and 13-25 months (group III). MRI was used to determine the uterine volume and size of the dominant leiomyoma. Symptoms and causes requiring repeat interventions were analyzed. Results: significant (p < 0.01) volume reduction of the uterus (median: 34.95% confidence interval [CI]: 30.41 - 41.76%) and dominant leiomyoma (median: 52.07%, CI: 47.71 - 61.57%) was found. The decrease in uterine volume (I-III: 22.68%, 33.56%, 47.93%) and dominant leiomyoma volume (I-III: 41.86%, 62.16%, 73.96%) progressed with the follow-up time. Bleeding resolved significantly (p < 0.0001) in all three follow-up groups (groups I-III: 92.86%, 95.23%, 96.67%). Furthermore, urinary frequency (groups I-III: 70%, 75%, 82.35%) and sensation of pelvic pressure (groups I-III: 42.86%, 60%, 93.75%) improved, which was statistically significant in group III (p < 0.01). The number of leiomyomas correlated (p < 0.05) with improvement of the bleeding and the pelvic pressure. Repeat therapy was necessary for complications in four patients (5%) and for therapeutic failure in three patients (3.8%). Permanent amenorrhea was observed in four patients (5%) of age 45 years or older. Conclusion: uterine artery embolization of uterine leiomyomas has a high clinical success rate with an acceptable incidence of complications and repeat interventions. (orig.)

  5. Evidence-based radiology: a new approach to evaluate the clinical practice of radiology; Evidenzbasierte Radiologie: Ein neuer Ansatz zur Bewertung von klinisch angewandter radiologischer Diagnostik und Therapie

    Over the last several years, the concept and methodology of evidence-based medicine (EBM) have received significant attention in the scientific community. However, compared to therapeutic medical disciplines, EBM-based radiological publications are still underrepresented. This article summarizes the principles of EBM and discusses the possibilities of their application in radiology. The presented topics include the critical appraisal of studies on the basis on EBM principles, the explanation of EBM-relevant statistical outcome parameters (e.g., ''likelihood ratio'' for diagnostic and ''number needed to treat'' for interventional procedures), as well as the problems facing evidence-based radiology. Evidence-based evaluation of radiological procedures does not only address aspects of cost-effectiveness, but is also particularly helpful in identifying patient-specific usefulness. Therefore it should become an integral part of radiologist training. (orig.)

  3. Curing singularities in cosmological evolution of F(R) gravity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Appleby, Stephen A.; Battye, Richard A.; Starobinsky, Alexei A.

    2010-01-01

    We study F(R) modified gravity models which are capable of driving the accelerating epoch of the Universe at the present time whilst not destroying the standard Big Bang and inflationary cosmology. Recent studies have shown that a weak curvature singularity with |R| → ∞ can arise generically in viable F(R) models of present dark energy (DE) signaling an internal incompleteness of these models. In this work we study how this problem is cured by adding a quadratic correction with a sufficiently small coefficient to the F(R) function at large curvatures. At the same time, this correction eliminates two more serious problems of previously constructed viable F(R) DE models: unboundedness of the mass of a scalar particle (scalaron) arising in F(R) gravity and the scalaron overabundance problem. Such carefully constructed models can also yield both an early time inflationary epoch and a late time de Sitter phase with vastly different values of R. The reheating epoch in these combined models of primordial and present dark energy is completely different from that of the old R+R 2 /6M 2 inflationary model, mainly due to the fact that values of the effective gravitational constant at low and intermediate curvatures are different for positive and negative R. This changes the number of e-folds during the observable part of inflation that results in a different value of the primordial power spectrum index

    2015-01-01

    GAMMA-FR code to code validation is conducted and it shows reasonable agreement, however, near wall effect on the effective thermal conductivity needs to be investigated for better results. The GAMMA-FR code was scheduled for validation during the next two years under UCLA-NFRI collaboration. Through this research, GAMMA-FR will be validated with representative fusion experiments and reference accident cases. The GAMMA-FR (Gas Multicomponent Mixture Transient Analysis for Fusion Reactors) code is an in-house system analysis code to predict the thermal hydraulic and chemical reaction phenomena expected to occur during the thermo-fluid transients in a nuclear fusion system. A safety analysis of the Korea TBS (Test Blanket System) for ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is underway using this code. This paper describes validation strategy of GAMMA-FR and current status of the validation study with respect to 'TES pipe rupture accident of ITER TBM'

  5. Wormhole geometry and Noether symmetry in f(R) gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sharif, M.; Nawazish, Iqra

    2018-02-01

    This paper investigates the geometry of static traversable wormhole through Noether symmetry approach in f(R) gravity. We take perfect fluid distribution and formulate symmetry generators with associated conserved quantities corresponding to general form, power-law and exponential f(R) models. In each case, we evaluate wormhole solutions using constant and variable red-shift functions. We analyze the behavior of shape function, viability of constructed f(R) model and stability of wormhole solutions graphically. The physical existence of wormhole solutions can be examined through null/weak energy conditions of perfect fluid and null energy condition of the effective energy-momentum tensor. The graphical interpretation of constructed wormhole solutions ensures the existence of physically viable and traversable wormholes for all models. It is concluded that the constructed wormholes are found to be stable in most of the cases.

  6. A viable logarithmic f(R) model for inflation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Amin, M.; Khalil, S.; Salah, M.

    2016-01-01

    Inflation in the framework of f(R) modified gravity is revisited. We study the conditions that f(R) should satisfy in order to lead to a viable inflationary model in the original form and in the Einstein frame. Based on these criteria we propose a new logarithmic model as a potential candidate for f(R) theories aiming to describe inflation consistent with observations from Planck satellite (2015). The model predicts scalar spectral index 0.9615

    Inflation in the framework of f(R) modified gravity is revisited. We study the conditions that f(R) should satisfy in order to lead to a viable inflationary model in the original form and in the Einstein frame. Based on these criteria we propose a new logarithmic model as a potential candidate for f(R) theories aiming to describe inflation consistent with observations from Planck satellite (2015). The model predicts scalar spectral index 0.9615

    A simple and rapid screen was performed for microorganisms producing cyclic lipopeptide acylase, an enzyme that deacylates the acyl side chain of FR901379 to yield a cyclic peptide, FR179642, which is an important intermediate in producing micafungin. Among approximately 3800 newly isolated strains from soil samples, 5 microorganisms expressing high acylase activity were selected and classified, 3 as Streptomyces spp. and 2 as filamentous fungi. This is the first time that these strains have been identified as cyclic lipopeptide acylase producers. Both fungi and streptomycetes showed differing optimum pH and temperature profiles for acylase activity.

  10. Necessary conditions for having wormholes in f(R) gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mazharimousavi, S. Habib; Halilsoy, M.

    2016-11-01

    For a generic f(R) which admits a polynomial expansion, we find the near-throat wormhole solution. Necessary conditions for the existence of wormholes in such f(R) theories are derived for both zero and nonzero matter sources. For vanishing external sources, we show that the energy conditions are violated. A particular choice of energy-momentum reveals that the wormhole geometry satisfies the weak energy condition (WEC). For a range of parameters, even the strong energy condition (SEC) is shown to be satisfied.

    2013-01-01

    All known algorithms for the Fréchet distance between curves proceed in two steps: first, they construct an efficient oracle for the decision version; second, they use this oracle to find the optimum from a finite set of critical values. We present a novel approach that avoids the detour through the decision version. This gives the first quadratic time algorithm for the Fréchet distance between polygonal curves in (Formula presented.) under polyhedral distance functions (e.g., (Formula presen...

  13. Spacetime entanglement with f(R) gravity

    We study the entanglement entropy of a general region in a theory of induced gravity using holographic calculations. In particular we use holographic entanglement entropy prescription of Ryu-Takayanagi in the context of the Randall-Sundrum 2 model while considering general f(R) gravity in the bulk. Showing the leading term is given by the usual Bekenstein-Hawking formula, we confirm the conjecture by Bianchi and Myers for this theory. Moreover, we calculate the first subleading term to entanglement entropy and show they agree with the Wald entropy up to extrinsic curvature terms.

  14. Renal artery intervention using a virtual 4.5-Fr guiding catheter.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Takeshita, Satoshi; Matsumi, Junya; Saito, Shigeru

    2013-05-01

    A 6.5-Fr guiding catheter (Parent Plus 45, Medikit, Tokyo, Japan), composed of a hydrophilic sheathless guiding catheter and a dilator, has recently been developed for the treatment of renal artery stenosis. Because of its unique sheathless configuration, its outer diameter is comparable to that of a conventional 4.5-Fr introducer sheath, with the inner diameter being close in size to a 6.5-Fr guiding catheter. These features allow this sheathless system to be used as the sole guiding catheter while the arterial damage at the puncture site remains equivalent to that of a 4.5-Fr introducer sheath. We thus call this novel sheathless guiding catheter a virtual 4.5-Fr system. To demonstrate the potential of this virtual 4.5-Fr system, we report a case of renal artery stenosis successfully treated via the transradial route. This virtual 4.5-Fr system may become a viable alternative to conventional guiding catheters, and provide a favorable impact upon vascular access complications and patient morbidity.

    1976-01-01

    Brief history of the earthquakes in F.R. Germany for the period from 1000 to 1969 is reviewed, and comparison of the aseismatic design of nuclear power stations between F.R. Germany and Japan is made. Earthquakes of intensity 7 (maximum acceleration value of 70 to 220 gal) and 8 (that of 150 to 300 gal) could be expected to occur in F.R. Germany, according to European seismic committee. The definitions of safety earthquake (Sicherheitserdbeben) and design earthquake (Auslegungserdbeben) are compared with the Japanese terms, S-2 (maximum possible earthquake giving the strongest vibration to site base) and S-1 (maximum probable earthquake giving the strongest vibration to site base). The total area of F.R. Germany is classified into four zones according to dangerousness. Aseismatic design in F.R. Germany is classified into two classes, whereas that in Japan into three or four classes. In F.R. Germany, either dynamic analysis, simple analysis, or omission of analysis is employed. F.R. Germany employs the waves of E1-centro, Taft, etc. of USA as standard, referring to U.S.N.R.C. 1.60 and Housner's equation. The attenuation coefficient and the allowable stress are also compared. A power plant to be exported to Iran is designed at SE of 500 gal and AE of 250 gal, which are approximately equal to the maximum earthquake acceleration for design in Japan. (Iwakiri, K.)

    2011-01-01

    The similarity of two polygonal curves can be measured using the Fr\\'echet distance. We introduce the notion of a more robust Fr\\'echet distance, where one is allowed to shortcut between vertices of one of the curves. This is a natural approach for handling noise, in particular batched outliers. We compute a (3+\\eps)-approximation to the minimum Fr\\'echet distance over all possible such shortcuts, in near linear time, if the curve is c-packed and the number of shortcuts is either small or unb...

  18. Successful Intravascular Ultrasound-Guided Transradial Coronary Intervention with a 4Fr Guiding Catheter.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nakano, Yasuhiro; Sadamatsu, Kenji

    2016-01-01

    Minimizing the catheter size can reduce vascular access complications and contrast dye usage in coronary angiography. The small diameter of the 4Fr guiding catheter has limited the use of several angioplasty devices such as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in the past. However, the combination of a novel IVUS catheter and a 0.010 guidewire makes it possible to perform IVUS-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with a 4Fr guiding catheter. We herein report the case of a 51-year-old man with silent myocardial ischemia who underwent IVUS-guided transradial PCI with a 4Fr guiding catheter.

  20. Reconstructing an f(R) model from holographic dark energy: using the observational evidence

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Saaidi, Kh; Aghamohammadi, A

    2012-01-01

    We investigate the correspondence relation between f(R) gravity and an interacting holographic dark energy (HDE). By obtaining the conditions needed for some observational evidence such as positive acceleration expansion of the Universe, crossing the phantom divide line and validity of the thermodynamics second law in an interacting HDE model and corresponding it with the f(R) model of gravity, we find a viable f(R) model that can explain the present Universe. We also obtain the explicit evolutionary forms of the corresponding scalar field, potential and scale factor of the Universe. (paper)
