In dieser Studie untersuchten wir den prädiktiven Wert des APACHE II, APACHE III, Elebute-Stoner, SOFA und SAPS II im Rahmen der Mortalitätsabschätzung bei Patienten im kardiogenen Schock (CS) infolge eines akuten Myokardinfarkts (AMI).Material und...

Enteral nutrition is associated with improved outcome in patients with severe sepsis

Introduction The optimal nutritional strategy remains controversial, particularly in severely septic patients. Our aim was to analyze the effect of three nutritional strategies—enteral (EN), parenteral (PN), and combined nutrition (EN+PN)—on the outcome of patients with severe sepsis or septic shock. Patients and methods This secondary analysis of the prospective, randomized...

Spontaneous intramural small-bowel hematoma secondary to anticoagulant therapy: a case series

Spontaneous small-bowel hematomas most commonly involve the jejunum, followed by the ileum and duodenum, and occur in patients who receive excessive anticoagulation with phenprocoumon/warfarin or who have additional risk factors for bleeding. We report three cases of intramural small-bowel hematoma, all complications of treatment with phenprocoumon, which nowadays is used...
