We compared, histologically and biochemically, the effects of blood pretreatment vs. no pretreatment on the ingrowth of scar into subcutaneously implanted blocks of Proplast in rats. No significant differences were found.
Striae proceed through stages quite similar to those in the evolution of scars. Most of the collagen bundles in the striae are highly stressed. Striae bear a striking resemblance to other human scar models in which newly synthesized connective tissue has been reorganized by tension. Unlike these other models, however, striae provide a readily available,… (More)
Correction of anomalous infradiaphragmatic inferior vena caval drainage of the right pulmonary veins can be repaired under conventional cardiopulmonary bypass by placing a circumferential tape below the diaphragm between the hepatic veins and the scimitar vein entrance. During repair, creation of an atrial septal defect in the distorted septal-left atrial… (More)
The effects of Proplast implants on the soft tissues of rats were studied. The effects from Proplast implants which had been impregnated with blood, plasma, or saline were compared to the effects from implants which had received no pretreatment. No significant differences were found.
