OBJECTIVES Various models of spinal cord injury in rodents have been established, and also techniques for lesion quantification. Measurement of the extent of the underlying injury is essential for monitoring the reproducibility of the experimental injury and assessment of therapeutic effects. In this study, we tested manganese-enhanced magnetic resonance(More)
BACKGROUND Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common operations in general surgery. The Lichtenstein tension-free operation has become the gold standard in open inguinal hernia repair. Despite the low recurrence rates, pain and discomfort remain a problem for a large number of patients. The aim of this study was to compare suture fixation vs. fibrin(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroprotective effects of recombinant human activated Protein C (rhAPC) in models of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and ischemic stroke have been reported in rodents. To rule out immunogenicity of rhAPC and to possibly maintain the physiological PC/thrombin balance the use of zymogen PC in SCI might be preferable. Although activation of Protein C (PC)(More)
