In order to enhance the knowledge of the internal thoracic arteries of pig, sheep, and man, allowing to constitute a fundamental basis as for the current and later applications in the interventions in surgery of revascularization of the arteries of less than four millimetre of diameter, a biometric and histological comparative study of these arteries was(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to compare the standard protocol of anticoagulation to the Hepcon/HMS. METHOD This study included forty-four patients who underwent coronary bypass grafting surgery (CABG), or biological aortic valve replacement (AVR). Unfractionated heparin (UH) was used for patients who underwent operations in the control group(More)
A 62-year-old woman presented with crystalline keratopathy, crystal-storing histiocytosis, Fanconi syndrome, and a serum monoclonal IgG-κ and urinary κ light chain. Histology and electron microscopy studies revealed the presence of crystals within macrophages in multiple eye sites, in the kidney and in the bone marrow. The variable domain of the pathogenic(More)
