    • Cumulative pregnancy rate after ICSI with cryopreserved testicular tissue in non-obstructive azoospermia 

      Dafopoulos, K.; Griesinger, G.; Schultze-Mosgau, A.; Orief, Y.; Schöpper, B.; Nikolettos, N.; Diedrich, K.; Al-Hasani, S. (2005)
      The aim of the present study was to describe a simplified and inexpensive method of testicular tissue freezing to assess the cumulative clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) by this technique, and to provide useful information for ...
    • Factors affecting outcome after ICSI with spermatozoa retrieved from cryopreserved testicular tissue in non-obstructive azoospermia 

      Dafopoulos, K.; Griesinger, G.; Schultze-Mosgau, A.; Orief, Y.; Schöpper, B.; Nikolettos, N.; Diedrich, K.; Al-Hasani, S. (2005)
      There is a lack of data regarding variables affecting the treatment outcome for non-obsructive azoospermia when spermatozoa from cryopreserved testicular specimens are utilized for ICSI. The objective of the present ...
    • Health management of ewes during pregnancy 

      Fthenakis, G. C.; Arsenos, G.; Brozos, C.; Fragkou, I. A.; Giadinis, N. D.; Giannenas, I.; Mavrogianni, V. S.; Papadopoulos, E.; Valasi, I. (2012)
      The objectives of health management of ewes during pregnancy are as follows: (i) successful completion of pregnancy at term, (ii) birth of healthy and viable lambs, with optimal birth and potential weaning bodyweight, (iii) ...
    • Leptin in pregnancy 

      Domali, E.; Messinis, I. E. (2002)
      Leptin is a 16-kDa polypeptide, encoded in humans by the LEP gene. This protein is probably involved in the regulation of ovarian function, oocyte maturation and embryo development, and in the implantation process. During ...

    • Maxillary sinus inflammatory disease: Ultrasound compared to computed tomography 

      Karantanas, A. H.; Sandris, V. (1997)
      Fifty-six patients (age range, 15-79 yr, average, 37.0±18.5 yr), with a clinical and/or radiological diagnosis of acute maxillary sinusitis, were prospectively studied with ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT). The ...
