BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the technical and clinical outcomes, overall survival and prognostic factors for prolonged survival after yttrium-90 ((90)Y) radioembolization as a salvage therapy for patients with chemorefractory liver-only or liver-dominant colorectal metastases. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From January 2005 to January 2014, all the patients selected for (90)Y radioembolization to treat chemorefractory colorectal liver metastases were identified...

Tuberculosis (TB) continues to be one of the infectious diseases with the world's highest rates of avoidable morbidity and mortality. A continuing downward trend has only been observed in highly industrialized countries, including Germany with 4,400 cases in the year 2009 representing an incidence of 5.5 per 100,000 persons. At the same time, the exposure to this patient group and the clinical experience are decreasing. Tuberculosis may affect any organ. The lung was the manifestation site in 80% of cases, and extrapulmonary manifestations were recorded in 20% of cases in Germany in the year 2008...

Endotipsitis or primary infection of a TIPS-stent, is an uncommon but possible life- threatening condition by its potential evolution to sepsis and death. Diagnosis should be suspected in patients with a TIPS-stent presenting with stent-dysfunction associated with fever or relapsing episodes of bacteremia/sepsis without any other alternative focus. A certain diagnosis is made by post-factum histopathological and/or microbiological examination of the TIPS-stent which is only possible after liver transplantation or at autopsy, whereas it can be highly suspected in case of repetitive positive blood-cultures without any other focus in a patient with a TIPS-stent...

A 75-year-old woman with a history of coronary artery bypass surgery complicated by mediastinitis presented with hemoptysis and fever. An enlarging pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta was found on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging. After a bypass graft procedure for cerebral and cardiac protection, two endoprosthetic cuffs, which are normally used for proximal abdominal aortic stent-graft extension, were positioned over the pseudoaneurysm neck via right carotid artery access. Blood cultures revealed methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus, and antibiotic therapy was continued for 6 weeks...

It has been suggested that recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) may cause pyschological and psychiatric problems, although the effects of rIL-2 on its own have not been well documented. To evaluate these effects, 17 patients with advanced colorectal cancer took part in a randomised, parallel group study of rIL-2 with chemotherapy (5-fluorouracil and leucovorin) versus chemotherapy alone. Patients were assessed regularly by means of various psychometric tests including the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, the Mood Rating Scale, the Mini-Mental State Examination, the Digit Symbol Substitution Test, the Trail-Making Test and the Benton Revised Visual Retention Test...

The human being is a homeotherm. Homeothermy is a result of thermoregulation which includes many physiological processes. Thermoregulation maintains an equilibrium between heat production (thermogenesis) and heat loss (thermolysis). There are three principal modes of heat production: 1. Voluntary muscle activity. 2. Involuntary tonic or rhythmic muscle activity known as "shivering". 3. Non-shivering thermogenesis (NST) essential for newborns. Heat loss occurs in two stages: 1. The flow of heat from the center of the body to its surface...
