Early effects of ionizing radiation were investigated in an experimental in vitro system using the ciliary cells of the tracheal mucous membrane of the rabbit, irradiated at 30° C and at more than 90% humidity. The changes in physiological activities of the ciliary cells caused by irradiation were continuously registered during the irradiation. The(More)
This study examined tumour vessel injury resulting from laser-induced hyperthermia alone and in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of rat liver tumours by means of scanning electron microscopy. A total of 18 Wistar rats were divided into three groups. Group I (six animals) underwent hyperthermia for 15 min (15-min hyperthermia).(More)
BACKGROUND It has been reported that patients undergoing major hepatectomy tolerated 90 and 127 minutes of continuous hepatic inflow interruption with no evidence of permanent damage to the liver. We questioned the safety and feasibility of the interruption beyond 90 minutes in normothermic human beings. We also postulated that, besides injury to the liver(More)
