MVZ provide community-based health care services improving integrated primary care and specialist care and allow hospital to outsource outpatient activities. They also provide patient-centered care and promote internal and external multidisciplinary coordination.</ce:para> <ce:para>MVZ can provide an example for possible changes to private specialist organisation and structuring of hospital services in France, while MSP mainly focus on primary care and only a few specialist CS have been created...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to investigate the prevalence of abnormal thinning of the inferior macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL) in glaucoma and to understand its relationship to abnormal regions of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL), including the macular vulnerability zone (MVZ). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We evaluated 186 eyes (186 patients) with glaucoma. An integrated deviation map was merged by superimposition of mGCIPL and pRNFL deviation maps (from a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography) onto RNFL photography as aligned by Photoshop software based on vascular landmarks...

Radiology is among the medical disciplines which require the highest investment costs in the healthcare system. The need to design efficient workflows to ensure maximum utilization of the equipment has long been known. In order to be able to establish a sound financial plan prior to a project or equipment purchase, the costs of an examination have to be broken down by modality and compared with the reimbursement rates. Obviously, the same holds true for operative decisions when scarce human resources have to be allocated...

We investigated protein expression in the medullary visceral zone (MVZ) of rats with multiple-organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) to discuss the possible regulatory mechanism of the MVZ in the course of SAH-induced MODS. A SAH-induced MODS model was established in rats by injecting arterial blood into the Willis' circle. Protein expression in the MVZ was analyzed by immunohistochemistry assay. Protein expression in the MVZ peaked 24-36 h after SAH, and was significantly higher than in the control and sham operation groups...

BACKGROUND: Testosterone deficiency represents a significant health risk factor for men but the importance has so far been underestimated. Besides physiological and age-related reduction, acquired testosterone deficiency may also occur. Testosterone deficiency is a possible result of commonly occurring diseases or is itself the basis for development of different diseases. The scope of the present investigation was measurement of serum testosterone levels in different age groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Serum testosterone levels were determined in samples from 5,735 healthy men at the LADR laboratory MVZ Dr...

Computers are ubiquitous in the life sciences and are associated with many of the practical and conceptual changes that characterize biology's twentieth-century transformation. Yet comparatively little has been written about how scientists use computers. Despite this relative lack of scholarly attention, the claim that computers revolutionized the life sciences by making the impossible possible is widespread, and relatively unchallenged. How did the introduction of computers into research programs shape scientific practice? The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (MVZ) at the University of California, Berkeley provides a tractable way into this under-examined question because it is possible to follow the computerization of data in the context of long-term research programs...

This study was designed to observe the role of FOS protein expression in the rat medullary visceral zone (MVZ) in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), with and without severing the vagus nerve. We also investigated the regulatory and control mechanisms of the MVZ and the vagus nerve in MODS following SAH. A model of MODS following SAH was established by injecting arterial blood into the Willis' circle. The vagus nerve was cut off and blocked. The FOS protein expression in the MVZ was detected by immunohistochemistry...

There is a growing body of evidence that early glaucomatous damage involves the macula. The anatomical basis of this damage can be studied using frequency domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT), by which the local thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and local retinal ganglion cell plus inner plexiform (RGC+) layer can be measured. Based upon averaged fdOCT results from healthy controls and patients, we show that: 1. For healthy controls, the average RGC+ layer thickness closely matches human histological data; 2...

Throughout the twentieth century calls to modernize natural history motivated a range of responses. It was unclear how research in natural history museums would participate in the significant technological and conceptual changes that were occurring in the life sciences. By the 1960s, the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at the University of California, Berkeley, was among the few university-based natural history museums that were able to maintain their specimen collections and support active research. The MVZ therefore provides a window to the modernization of natural history...

BACKGROUND: Since January 2004 hospitals have the opportunity to establish an ambulatory health-care centre (Medizinisches Versorgungszentrum - MVZ) as a result of the introduction of the Health-care Modernisation Act (Gesetz zur Modernisierung der gesetzlichen Krankenversicherung - GMG). After about a half-year preparatory phase, the UKE, in September 2004, began operation of the "Ambulanzzentrum des UKE GmbH" (a limited liability company) as the first MVZ at a university hospital in Germany...

The activity of catecholaminergic neurons in the hypothalamus and the medullary visceral zone (MVZ) in rats in response to restraint water-immersion stress (RWIS) was measured by use of dual Fos and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) immunohistochemistry. In RWIS rats Fos immunoreactive (Fos-IR) nuclei dramatically increased in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN), the supraoptic nucleus (SON), the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV), the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS), the area postrema (AP), and the ventrolateral medulla (VLM)...

OBJECTIVE: The measurement of patient preferences on the basis of perceived quality of care in a comparison of two ambulatory health-care centres (medizinisches Versorgungszentrum, MVZ) with traditional ambulatory care consisting of single ambulatory practices was undertaken. The influence of the patients' perceived quality of care on patients' preference for an MVZ or traditional ambulatory care setting was analysed. Determinants of the patients' preference were identified. METHODS: 310 questionnaires were distributed to patients in 2 MVZ...

Our healthcare service system which used to have a strictly sectoral structure experiences a radical change. Office-based specialists cannot any longer rely on the fact that they have exclusive responsibility for the ambulatory treatment of patients. In the past years the legislator has melted the strict separation between hospital treatment and ambulatory care. Finally the establishment of medical service centres (MVZ) and the opening of hospitals for highly specialized services and the treatment of special diseases relating to the Fifth Book of Social Code, Para...

Before December 31, 2002 hospital options were limited to demand-oriented individual authorisations and ambulatory emergency care, so there was no competition against private practice physicians. For the first time the Healthcare Reform Act (GSG) provided hospitals with the opportunity to offer ambulatory services from January 1, 2003 in individual areas of care (pre- and post inpatient treatments according to Sect. 116a SGB and ambulatory surgical interventions according to Sect. 115b SGB V). Following numerous reform acts the spectrum for hospitals has been considerably extended today, particularly by establishing medical service centres (MVZ) and the authorisation to provide certain ambulatory services according to Sect...
