Oxycodone is a μ-opioid receptor agonist and is generally indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain. The aim of this study was to compare the analgesic efficacy of patient-controlled oxycodone and fentanyl for postoperative pain in patients undergoing colorectal surgery. Patients scheduled to undergo elective colorectal surgery (n=82) were(More)
Oocyte quality is a key factor affecting success of in vitro embryo production in cattle. Improving the microenvironment of oocytes during in vitro maturation (IVM) can increase developmental rate and embryo quality. Therefore, the objective was to determine whether denuded oocytes (DO) affect embryo development and ultrastructure of the zona pellucida (ZP)(More)
The production of embryos with a preselected sex sperm is important in the livestock industry. In this study, we examined the efficiency of producing female embryos by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with flow cytometry sorted (ssICSI) and unsorted (usICSI) bovine sperm, and their developmental competence in vitro. For comparison, bovine embryos(More)
Various amounts of Nb(2)O(5) in the (Na(0.5)K(0.5)) NbO(3) (NKN) ceramic were replaced by V(2)O(5) to decrease its sintering temperature to below 950 degrees C. A small V(2)O(5) content resulted in a dense microstructure with an increased grain size for the specimen sintered at 900 degrees C due to the presence of a liquid phase. When V(2)O(5) was added to(More)
This study investigated the ability of charcoal:dextran stripped fetal bovine serum (CDS FBS) and heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum (HI FBS) to support in vitro development of bovine embryos. The developmental ability and quality of bovine embryos were determined by assessing their cell number, lipid content, mitochondrial activity, gene expression, and(More)
This study sought to modulate factors that reduce embryo quality in in vitro culture (IVC) systems. Over eight replicates, 3075 oocytes were cultured in in vitro maturation media containing various concentrations of lycopene, followed by in vitro fertilization and culture. The percentages of MII-stage oocytes, the presumptive zygotes that underwent cleavage(More)
