Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of linear contrast enhanced intraoperative ultrasound (CE-IOUS) to improve detection of malign liver tumors lesions before surgery or radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Materials and Methods: 50 patients were included for surgery of malignant...
In the ovary with its cyclically developing and regressing functional bodies and the associated intense neovascularisation and remodelling, alpha-smooth muscle actin (SMA) immunolocalisation has been frequently used as a marker to establish vessel hierarchy, in angiogenesis studies, or in studies...
Objective: Purpose of this study was to monitor changes of microcirculation in acute compartment syndrome using contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and to assess the modified perfusion with a special quantification software. Methods: 8 patients with trauma of the lower limb or the upper extremity...
Background: Free tissue transfer in head and neck reconstructions has a very high success rate, but thrombotic vessel occlusion is still a serious complication occurring in up to 10% of all cases. Thus, a simple, fast and reliable monitoring system for free flaps would be of advantage. Objective:...
After intra-arterial administration of several radiographic contrast media (RCM) a disorder of the downstream microcirculation with regard to blood flow velocity in microvessels and to tissue oxygen partial pressure in the myocardium of the pig heart was described. Iodixanol did not induce such a...
A major clinical problem of high relevance in the cardiovascular field is late stent thrombosis after implantation of drug eluting stents (DES). Clinical widely used DES currently utilize durable polymer coatings, which can induce persistent arterial wall inflammation and delayed vascular healing...
