We aim at investigating the feasibility of using the diastolic (ABI-d) instead of ABI-s to calculate the ABI in diabetic patients with calcified(More)

Steno-occlusive disease of the internal carotid arteries and/or the circle of Willis with development of collateral perforator vessels attempting to supply under-perfused parenchyma are the basis for moya-moya phenomenon with the classic "puff of smoke" appearance on cerebral angiogram. We describe two cases of moya-moya with unilateral macroangiopathy of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate if noradrenaline (NA) and 5-hydroxyptamine (5-HT) drugs induce responses of isolated control and varicose veins are altered by removal of the endothelium. SUBJECTS #ENTITYSTARTX00026; METHODS Specimens of the great saphenous vein (GSV) were obtained from 12 subjects with primary varicose veins and 12 subjects from donor vessels at(More)
