This study shows the expression pattern of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in the anterior and posterior horns of the spinal cord after brachial plexus injury. The animals were divided into three injury groups: group 1, right C(7) anterior root avulsion; group 2, right C(7) anterior root avulsion and cut right C(5)-T(1) posterior roots; and group 3,(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to obtain the biomechanical properties of ascending aorta and pulmonary trunk between healthy humans and pigs of different months, so as to provide necessary biomechanical experimental basis for anastomosing blood vessel in pig-to-human heart xenotransplantation. METHODS Ascending aorta and pulmonary trunks of the six deceased(More)
