  • Harvest of Iliac Crest Autograft Not Associated With Localized Pain. [Journal Article]
    Int J Spine Surg. 2019 Jun; 13(3):275-282.Snavely JE, Mercer RW, Stewart G
  • CONCLUSIONS: Iliac crest harvest and reconstruction utilizing this technique does not result in increased pain on the side of the harvest. This study supports a low morbidity rate for iliac crest autograft harvest as no complications were seen in this series.
  • Sports activity after soft tissue sarcoma of the lower extremity. [Journal Article]
    Disabil Rehabil. 2020 Jan; 42(1):14-19.Hobusch GM, Cernakova M, … Windhager R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Healthy long-term survivors can achieve high levels of sports activity following limb salvage after soft-tissue sarcomas. The concerned muscle groups may influence the functional and sports outcome and draw attention to this topic in future rehabilitation. This knowledge may be of high value for patients counseling, physicians and orthopedists treating patients, as well as for patients inquiring information regarding post-treatment activity levels.Implication for rehabilitationSport is possible after soft tissue sarcoma treatment and longer-term rehabilitation which is usually three yearsRehabilitation is best undertaken in specialized centersIt is important to maintain contact with surgeons in order to optimize mobilizationHigh impact sports may be affected by deep muscle resections.
  • Are we bound to our scores? a 74-year-old patient with an abbreviated burn severity index of 14. [Journal Article]
    Ann Burns Fire Disasters. 2018 Jun 30; 31(2):94-96.Vorstandlechner V, Pauzenberger R, … Fochtmann-Frana A
  • We report a case of a 74-year-old female patient who was involved in a car accident. The patient suffered deep dermal and full thickness burns and the probability of survival calculated with the Abbreviated Burn Severity Index (ABSI) was extremely low. The patient showed sufficient cardiorespiratory and renal function for the entire treatment period. An epifascial necrosectomy of all four limbs w…
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Based Assessment of Breast Cancer-Related Lymphoedema Tissue Composition. [Journal Article]
    Invest Radiol. 2017 09; 52(9):554-561.Borri M, Gordon KD, … Schmidt MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our measurements indicate that excess of fat within the epifascial layer was the main contributor to the swelling, even when a substantial accumulation of fluid was present. The proposed approach could be used to monitor how the internal components of BCRL evolve after presentation, to stratify patients for treatment, and to objectively assess treatment response. This methodology provides quantitative metrics not currently available during the standard clinical assessment of BCRL and shows potential for implementation in clinical practice.
  • Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Human Dermal Lymphatic Collectors. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2016; 11(10):e0164964.Hasselhof V, Sperling A, … Wilting J
  • Millions of patients suffer from lymphedema worldwide. Supporting the contractility of lymphatic collectors is an attractive target for pharmacological therapy of lymphedema. However, lymphatics have mostly been studied in animals, while the cellular and molecular characteristics of human lymphatic collectors are largely unknown. We studied epifascial lymphatic collectors of the thigh, which were…
  • A Severely Burned Hemophiliac. [Case Reports]
    J Burn Care Res. 2017 Jan/Feb; 38(1):e456-e459.Boliglowa DK, Pierson T, … Menke H
  • Patients suffering from moderate or severe hemophilia A are particularly vulnerable to trauma injury, being on high risk of immediate exsanguination. Due to a rareness of this disease, there are very few reports about the management of severe injuries of the affected patients. No guidelines for the management of burn trauma of hemophiliac patients have been yet established. Since, to our knowledg…
  • [Fatal hyperpyrexia in an adolescent patient with severe burns after a traffic accident]. [Case Reports]
    Unfallchirurg. 2016 Jul; 119(7):609-12.Jaehn T, Sievers R, … Reichert B
  • After a motorcycle accident a 16-year-old patient suffered severe burns to 40.5 % of the total body surface area (TBSA) of which 37 % were deep subdermal burns. After tangential and partly epifascial necrosectomy, Integra® was used as a temporary dermis replacement material for the lower extremities, combined with extensive negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). In the further course of the trea…
  • Marking wire placement for improved accuracy in thoracic spinal surgery. [Journal Article]
    Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2014 Apr; 119:100-5.Ahmadi SA, Slotty PJ, … Eicker SO
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is a safe and practical approach to identify the level of interest in thoracic spinal surgery employing a marking wire. Its application merits consideration in any spinal case where X-ray localization could prove unsafe, particularly in cases lacking bony pathologies such as intradural tumors.
  • [Superficial venous thrombosis. A review]. [Review]
    Hautarzt. 2012 Aug; 63(8):609-15.Jeanneret C, Brunner S
  • This review summarizes the epidemiology, clinical aspects, diagnosis and new therapeutic options of the superficial venous thrombosis. An important new finding is, that the thrombophlebitis is actually a thrombosis, which occurs in an intra- or epifascial vein. It can be associated with deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, thus carrying considerable risk. Other underlying diseases such a…
  • Age, body mass index and severity of primary chronic venous disease. [Journal Article]
    Biomed Pap Med Fac Univ Palacky Olomouc Czech Repub. 2011 Dec; 155(4):367-71.Musil D, Kaletova M, Herman J
  • CONCLUSIONS: The study confirmed the relationship between age, clinical (CEAP clinical class) and pathophysiological (extent of the venous reflux) severity of CVD Older age means an increased number of insufficient venous segments and increased risk of the clinical progression of CVD from varicose veins to chronic venous insufficiency (C(3)-C(6), trophic skin changes and venous ulcers). Our results support the BMI, in term of frequency of venous reflux, as a risk factor in the whole group of patients but only in women but not in men. Multiple linear regression showed BMI together with age as significant predictors of clinical grade of CVD (p<0.05) according to the CEAP classification. As regards the influence of BMI on clinical severity/grade of CVD (CEAP), the results of our study support BMI as an important risk factor.
