  • [Lesions of the anterior chest wall-significance of additional fractures of the spine]. [Review]
    Unfallchirurg 2018; 121(8):624-633Krinner S, Langenbach A, … Schulz-Drost S
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the case of injuries of the thoracic trunk, this must always be regarded as a unit and must therefore be clarified in the context of the clinical examination and diagnostic apparatus. The possible accident mechanism can allow conclusions to be drawn about possible injury patterns, e.g. in the sense of SVIs.
  • [Frequency and age distribution of combined sternovertebral injuries : Analysis of routine data from German hospitals 2005-2012]. [Journal Article]
    Unfallchirurg 2018; 121(8):642-648Krinner S, Schmitt S, … Schulz-Drost S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Of all patients with a SF 30.96% also suffered from a vertebral fracture. Of these 3.11% were SF as the main diagnosis and 60.89% the secondary diagnosis. While vertebral fractures generally occurred most frequently in the region of the thoracolumbar transition and the second cervical vertebral body, the SVI showed a further frequency peak in the range from the lower cervical spine to the middle thoracic spine. The present study was able to show a frequency distribution of accompanying vertebral body injuries in a large and representative collective in the case of SF for the first time.
  • [The sterno-vertebral instability - a new classification and therapeutic options]. [Journal Article]
    Z Orthop Unfall 2014; 152(4):343-50Homagk L, Siekmann H, … Schmidt J
  • CONCLUSIONS: The literature on sternal injuries and their treatment is low. Combinations of sternum and spine injuries have not yet been processed systematically in literature. Thus, there is no concerted standard of therapeutic options. The very rare occurrence of this injury combination often leads to this injury type being forgotten in the primary evaluation of casualties.
  • Usefulness of chest images for the assessment of pectus excavatum before and after a Nuss repair in adults. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 2013; 43(2):283-7Wu TH, Huang TW, … Cheng YL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Haller indices measured using chest radiographs and CT showed a strong correlation. Therefore, chest radiographs can be used as an alternative tool for the preoperative evaluation of PE. The Nuss operation significantly improved SV distances detected on lateral chest radiographs. Lateral chest radiographs can be used as a simple modality for the objective quantitative assessment of the anatomic results and follow-up of the Nuss operation in adults.
  • Positive end-expiratory pressure increases strain in patients with ALI/ARDS. [Journal Article]
    Rev Bras Ter Intensiva 2012; 24(1):43-51Bugedo G, Bruhn A, … Hernández G
  • CONCLUSIONS: While strain is an adverse effect of positive end-expiratory pressure, the decision use positive end-expiratory pressure with any patient should be balanced against the potential benefits of recruitment. Due to the small number of patients in this study, the present data should be treated as hypothesis generating and is not intended to limit the clinical application of a high level of positive end-expiratory pressure in patients with severe hypoxemia.
  • Radiological changes after Nuss operation for pectus excavatum. [Journal Article]
    Medicina (Kaunas) 2009; 45(9):699-705Kilda A, Lukosevicius S, … Basevicius A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The sternovertebral distance was significantly increased after Nuss operation. Restoration of deformation proceeds during all the first year after operation. The dynamics of deformation is better depicted by means of vertebral index rather than Haller index.
