BACKGROUND: Shoulder impingement is one of the most common orthopaedic arthropathies. A minimally invasive surgery is indicated in cases of persistent symptoms or non-responders to conservative pain therapy. Normally, strong postoperative pain of the shoulder requires an effective pain therapy. PATIENTS/MATERIAL AND METHODS: 100 patients suffering from shoulder impingement with involvement of the acromioclavicular joint (55 male, 45 female, mean age 56, age range 37-78 years) were operated in 2007 and 2008 in the department of orthopaedics of the LVR-hospital...

HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS: A 58-year-old man was admitted for elucidation of a microcytic anemia diagnosed by his general practitioner (hemoglobin of 5,5 g/dl). He felt dizzy and unwell. The patient had for some time been regularly taking 1-2 tablets of diclofenac, a nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), for joint and gouty pain. He had occasionally noted small amounts of blood on his stool. The physical examination was unremarkable except for obesity, several swollen and painful joints, and a gouty right big toe with a tophus and small ulcer...

BACKGROUND: Outpatient surgeons were surveyed about the quality of postoperative pain therapy after outpatient interventions. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Of 2,317 outpatient surgeons who received a questionnaire by mail, 419 responded. The return rate was 18.1%. The questionnaire collected data on the operative procedures and methods of anesthesia from 2004 and the analgesics, which were applied in the immediate postoperative period and at home. Methods and contents of quality control were registered...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Early recovery after anaesthesia is gaining importance in fast track management. The aim of this study was to quantify psychomotor recovery within the first 24 h after propofol/remifentanil anaesthesia using the Short Performance Test (Syndrom Kurztest (SKT)), consisting of nine subtests. The hypothesis was that psychomotor performance remains reduced 24 h after anaesthesia. METHODS: Thirty-seven patients scheduled for elective surgery took part in the study...

A fall in systolic blood pressure without other symptoms of anaphylactic shock has been described following the administration of drugs containing dipyrone. This adverse reaction was first observed in 4 patients by the same team in 1972-1973. Ten further cases with a fall in systolic blood pressure by at least 20 mm Hg occurring within minutes to 6 hours after intravenous administration of dipyrone are presented in this paper. In each of them this adverse reaction was considered to be probable or even definite...

A fall in systolic blood pressure which was not accompanied by any other symptoms of anaphylactic shock was first observed in 1972 and 1973 by our team in four patients after they had received metamizol-containing drugs parenterally. Of the 17,407 patients monitored from 1974-1981, ten further cases exhibited a fall in systolic blood pressure within minutes up to six hours after intravenous administration of metamizol. In all of these cases, a causal relationship between drug administration (0.5-2.5 g) and the reaction described was considered 'likely' or even 'definite'...

Liposomes are effective carrier systems for prolonged drug release. As all other drug formulations for parenteral use, the safety of liposomal formulations should be established before clinical application. In this study, some safety aspects of intramuscularly injected (single dose) "gel-state" type liposomes and the ability of liposome encapsulation to diminish irritating effects of intramuscularly applied drugs were studied by histopathological analysis over a period of 14 days in mice. Injection of saline solution showed no tissue reaction at the injection site...

The enzymatic determination of the uric acie concentration in urine and serum according to Kageyama ((1971), Clin. Chim. Acta 31, 421--426), which excludes the deproteinization of samples, was adapted to the C4 automatic analyzer (Perkin-Elmer). The reliability of this procedure and its correlation with an UV-method were investigated. The interaction from-sample-to-sample was considerable, but this could be reduced by the addition of Brij-35. The recovery of uric acid added to protein-containing samples (about 96%) was better than with the UV-method...
