The relationship between temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) finding of articular disc displacement is debated. The purpose of this study is to investigate the correlation between TMJ pain and anterior disc displacement (ADD) using pseudo-dynamic MRI. A retrospective review of MRI studies was carried out on 130 TMJs(More)
BACKGROUND The association between obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has not been fully quantified, and the magnitude of NAFLD risk associated with obesity is still unclear. A meta-analysis of cohort studies was performed to elucidate the NAFLD risk associated with obesity. METHODS Pubmed, Web of Science and Embase were searched for(More)
Acute myocardial ischemia and reperfusion in rats increased glutamic oxalacetic transaminase (GOT), non-esterified fatty acid (FFA), malondialdehyde (MDA) content. Furyl-dihydropyridines I 10 mg.kg-1 decreased the release of GOT, FFA, MDA of ischemic myocardium, and prevent ischemia-reperfusion arrhythmia. Furyl-dihydropyridines I increased Na, K-ATPase(More)
The effects of BDDM on action potentials and slow response action potentials in guinea pig papillary muscle were investigated by microelectrode technique. BDDM prolonged action potentials duration at 30, 50, 90, and 100% repolarization (APD30, APD50, APD90, APD100) and prolonged the effective refractory period (ERP), so ERP/APD value became greater. BDDM(More)
In the isolated rabbit heart of recirculating nonpulsatile perfusion circuit, furyl-dihydropyridines I 20 mumol.L-1 greatly reduced the leakage of myocardial enzymes and the concentration of malondialdehyde (MDA) in plasma, decreased the myocardial calcium and sodium contents, maintained normal coronary vascular resistance and prevented reperfusion(More)
The effects of 3,6-dimethylamino-dibenzopyriodonium edetate (IHC-72) on global ischemia reperfused rat hearts were investigated. In the isolated working rat heart, 40-min global ischemia followed by 30-min reperfusion resulted in increases of ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation (VF), increases of creatine kinase (CK) release and(More)
The effects of 3,6-dimethylamino-dibenzopyriodonium edetate (IHC-72) on action potentials (AP) and slow response action potentials of guinea pig papillary muscles were studied with intracellular microelectrodes. IHC-72 12.7, 25.4, and 50.8 mumol.L-1 decreased the maximal upstroke velocity (Vmax), amplitude of action potential (APA), over shot (OS), and(More)
This experiment used indirect calorimetry to determine the net energy (NE) content of five corn distillers dried grains with solubles (corn DDGS) containing different oil levels and to compare the NE obtained using indirect calorimetry with that calculated using previously published prediction equations. There were two samples of high-oil DDGS, one sample(More)
Effects of furyl-dihydropyridine I (FDP-1) on collateral circulation were observed in ischemic myocardium of dogs. FDP-1 (200 micrograms.kg-1) of intracoronary injection increased collateral flow, reduced systemic artery resistance, and coronary systolic pressure in infarcted region and the area of infarction decreased from 28.9 +/- 1.3% to 15.3 +/- 1.2% (P(More)
A recirculating nonpulsatile perfusion circuit was used in isolated rabbit hearts. Furyl-dihydropyridine I (2,6-dimethyl-4-furyl-1,4-dihydropyridine-3, 5-dicarboxylate) 20 mumol/L was shown to inhibit the release of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) and alpha-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (HBD) from myocardium, decrease myocardial calcium and sodium contents by(More)
