Domes, 5 and 8 mm in diameter, were made of expanded polytetrafluorethylene membrane with different degrees of stiffness and internodal distance. The domes were placed on denuded calvarial bones of rats and covered by the skin and periosteal flaps. Histologic evaluation 9 to 16 weeks after surgery showed the formation of various amounts of new bone on the(More)
Fibre type composition and fibre areas in skeletal muscle of anorexia patients were studied on biopsies from the m. quadriceps femoris in five male and five females, whose body weight was 2-3.5 SDs less than expected from the normal weight/height relationship. In two of the males, the muscles studies were also made after rehabilitation. A higher than normal(More)
The functional and dimensional components of the oxygen transporting system was studied in 17 female and 11 male patients suffering from anorexia nervosa. Both groups were 14.9 years old, on average, and had lost about 25% of their weight. Measurements at rest included blood and heart volume, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen uptake (VO2), RQ, blood(More)
