The purpose of this research was to evaluate the role of hippocampal N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in acquisition and consolidation of memory during shuttle avoidance conditioning in rats. Adult male Wistar rats were surgically implanted with cannulae aimed at the CA1 area of the dorsal hippocampus. After recovery from surgery, animals were trained(More)
PURPOSE The exact distances from the cutaneous dorsal branches of the digital artery to the proximal interphalangeal joint have been established in a previous anatomic study. The aim of this report is to incorporate these anatomic data into the current way of designing the homodigital adipofascial turn-over flap for cutaneous coverage of the dorsum of the(More)
Wistar rats with cannulae bilaterally implanted in the CA1 region of the dorsal hippocampus were trained in a step-down inhibitory avoidance task. Through these cannulae they received an infusion of 28 or 280 ng per side of the L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel antagonist nifedipine, or of its vehicle (20% dimethyl sulfoxide in saline). The two doses(More)
The purpose of the present research was to further evaluate the role of hippocampal N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in inhibitory avoidance task consolidation. Adult male Wistar rats were trained and tested in a step-down inhibitory avoidance task (0.4 mA footshock, 24 h training-test interval). Immediately after training, animals received a(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aims to evaluate an early mobilization regimen after 136 flexor tendon repairs in zone two in 82 patients. METHOD Postoperatively patients were managed by an early mobilization program, which incorporated immediate active flexion and extension. Results are based on both the International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the(More)
This study describes the anatomy of the dorsal digital arteries in the 144 fingers of 18 pairs of fresh human cadaver hands. Previous studies have shown two constant branches in the proximal and middle pulp spaces from each proper digital artery. We have shown that these branches have consistent sites of origin at predictable distances from the proximal(More)
