  1. Paulsen F, Rudert H, Tillmann B. New insights into the pathomechanism of postintubation arytenoid subluxation. Anesthesiology. 1999;91:659-66 pubmed
    ..Subsequent ankylosis may occur. ..
  2. Paulsen F, Pufe T, Schaudig U, Held Feindt J, Lehmann J, Schroder J, et al. Detection of natural peptide antibiotics in human nasolacrimal ducts. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2001;42:2157-63 pubmed
    ..However, caution is appropriate, because defensins also promote fibrin formation and cell proliferation, which are key elements in scarring processes, such as dacryostenosis. ..

    ..In conclusion, these results support the hypothesis that progressive structural changes in the mucosa caused by the trauma of snoring are a possible contributory factor to upper airway collapsibility. ..
  4. Paulsen F, Thale A. Epithelial-connective tissue boundary in the oral part of the human soft palate. J Anat. 1998;193 ( Pt 3):457-67 pubmed
    ..The function of the epithelial-connective tissue interface and the extracellular matrix arrangement in the lamina propria are discussed in order to promote the comparability of normal with pathologically altered human soft palates...
  5. Paulsen F, Jungmann K, Tillmann B. The cricoarytenoid joint capsule and its relevance to endotracheal intubation. Anesth Analg. 2000;90:180-5 pubmed
    ..We conclude that laxity of the joint capsule and the large synovial folds are predisposing factors for intubation trauma of the cricoarytenoid joint, potentially leading to hemarthros and finally to cricoarytenoid joint dysfunction...
  6. Paulsen F, Pufe T, Conradi L, Varoga D, Tsokos M, Papendieck J, et al. Antimicrobial peptides are expressed and produced in healthy and inflamed human synovial membranes. J Pathol. 2002;198:369-77 pubmed
    ..However, caution is appropriate since defensins also promote fibrin formation and cell proliferation - key elements in joint infection. Clarification of the role of antimicrobial peptides in OA and RA will require further investigation. ..

    ..Moreover, the TFF peptides may also influence epithelial healing with their motogenic properties. ..
