Statistische Modelle in der Gefäßchirurgie

Hintergrund Die statistische Modellwahl mit dazugehörender Analysestrategie bestimmt in einem Forschungsprojekt dessen quantitatives Ergebnis. Es existiert in der Regel kein Goldstandard zur Wahl der relevanten Modellierungsstrategie. Der Statistiker kann in Abstimmung mit den weiteren Teammitgliedern im Projekt zwischen einer Vielzahl alternativer Modelle wählen. Folglich kämen ...

Quality of life in patients with intermittent claudication

Background Intermittent claudication (IC) is a common condition that causes pain in the lower limbs when walking and has been shown to severely impact the quality of life (QoL) of patients. The QoL is therefore often regarded as an important measure in clinical trials investigating intermittent claudication. To date, no consensus exits on the type of life questionnaire to be used. ...

I-SWOT as instrument to individually optimize therapy of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms

Background Guidelines summarize medical evidence, they identify the most efficient therapy under study conditions and recommend this therapy for use. The physician now has the challenge to translate a therapy that is efficient under laboratory conditions to a patient who is an individual person.

Endovascular treatment of genetically linked aortic diseases

Background The most important structural proteins of the vascular wall are collagen and elastin. Genetically linked connective tissue diseases lead to degeneration, aneurysm formation and spontaneous dissection or rupture of arteries. The most well-known are Marfan syndrome, vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (type IV), Loeys-Dietz syndrome and familial aortic aneurysms and ...

Mouse models of deep vein thrombosis

The pathogenesis of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is still not completely understood. Experimental animals in which human deep vein thrombosis can be modeled are useful tools to investigate the pathogenesis of VTE. Besides the availability of transgenic and genetically modified mice, the use of high frequency ultrasound and intravital microscopy plays an important role in ...
