A modified and updated description of the author's method for the assay of intestinal disaccharidases. The principle of the method is the following: an intestinal homogenate is incubated with the appropriate disaccharide. The disaccharidase activity is then interrupted by the addition of TRIS, and the glucose liberated is measured with a glucose oxidase(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to examine the level of unconsciousness measured with bispectral index (BIS) at different minimal alveolar concentration (MAC) levels of sevoflurane, and to study the hemodynamic and BIS reactions during noxious stimulation with transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and an ice water pain test (IWP).(More)
A quantitative study by light and electron microscopy of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) of the rat has been performed. The diameter of the myelinated fibers displayed a bimodal pattern, with a pronounced peak at 2-3 microns, and with a second peak at 4.5-7 microns. The number of small fibers was reduced at the termination of the nerve, indicating that(More)
A quantitative and qualitative study of the superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) and its branches was performed on the intact nerve and after experimental denervation procedures. The distribution patterns of the myelinated fibers of the intact internal (SLNI) and external (SLNE) branches in the rat were unimodal with a fiber diameter range of 0.5-12 microns and(More)
An endoneurial paraganglion located in the recurrent laryngeal nerve of the rat was found in 17 of 20 nerves studied. The median size of the paraganglia was estimated to be 0.8 X 10(6) micron 3. The number of type I like cells within a paraganglion ranged between 8 and 24. Altogether, 120 endoneurial dense-cored vesicle cells from 8 paraganglia were(More)
