BACKGROUND Dyspareunia, or pain during sexual intercourse, is among the problems most frequently reported by postmenopausal women. Past literature has almost unanimously attributed dyspareunic pain occurring during or after the menopausal transition to declining estrogen levels and vaginal atrophy. OBJECTIVES To critically review the literature on the(More)
Controlled cerebral ischemia was produced in rabbits by bilateral occlusion of the common carotid arteries and restriction of collateral blood flow by a decrease of the systemic arterial pressure to a desirable level (by hemorrhage into a pressurized reservior system). The following circulatory parameters were simultaneously monitored: systemic arterial(More)
High affinity [3H]ouabain binding was examined in the hippocampal CA1 region and frontal cortex of rats subjected to 5 min complete cerebral ischemia in a clinical death model, and to subsequent resuscitation. A decrease of Bmax directly after ischemia and its further gradual decrease during 120 min of reperfusion were noted in the ischemia-vulnerable CA1(More)
Changes of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate content in the rat brain have been evaluated by means of the radioimmunologic method during 5-min clinical death and up to 2 hrs after resuscitation. Ischemia produced a decrease of IP3 content in the brain on the average to 63% of the control values. IP3 concentration in the brain increased on the average to 197% of(More)
Changes of cGMP content in the rat brain and plasma have been evaluated by means of the radioimmunologic method after 5-min clinical death and up to 2 hours after resuscitation. Ischemia produced a decrease of cGMP in the brain, however, at the 15th min after resuscitation a reversible significant rise of nucleotide concentration was noted. In plasma at the(More)
