Long-term potentiation was studied in vivo in the rat barrel cortex. It was found that LTP lasting several hours could be induced in layer II/III by tetanic stimuli applied in layer IV. The probability of inducing LTP at a given site was high (86%) provided that the electrodes were not displaced too far horizontally. LTP was not observed if the stimulating(More)
Transit-time flowmetry enables immediate intraoperative assessment of blood flow parameters in coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG). The present study assesses the predictive value of measured graft flows on early and medium-term outcomes. All cardiac surgery patients with measured graft flows were included. The last intraoperative flow measurements(More)

Chicken erythrocytes, which contain less DNA than mammalian diploid cells, were used as an internal standard to control instrumental and staining variables during flow microfluorometric analysis. With the DNA stain, mithramycin, and with an EPICS II flow microfluorometer, ratios between the modal G1 fluorescence of experimental cells and that of chicken(More)
BACKGROUND Quality improvement initiatives in cardiac surgery largely rely on risk prediction models. Most often, these models include isolated populations and describe isolated end-points. However, with the changing clinical profile of the cardiac surgical patients, mixed populations models are required to accurately represent the majority of the surgical(More)
Approval of Ledipasvir/Sofosbuvir for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (HCV) includes the truncation of therapy from 12 to 8 weeks in treatment naïve, non-cirrhotic patients with baseline HCV RNA levels <6 million IU/mL (6.8 log10 IU/mL). The aim of this study was to evaluate this clinical cutoff with a different widely used commercially available HCV(More)
