Glutamine preserves gut glutathione levels during intestinal ischemia/reperfusion.
Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) causes formation of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) which lead to mucosal cell injury. Glutathione (GSH), an ROI scavenger, protects tissues fromExpand

Pentoxifylline prevents endothelial damage due to ischemia and reperfusion injury.
BACKGROUND Endothelial injury after ischemia and reperfusion is characterized by an increase in permeability, cellular edema, and loss of acetylcholine-mediated vasorelaxation. Three hours ofExpand

Limited thrombogenicity of low temperature, laser‐welded vascular anastomoses
Laser welding of vascular anastomoses has been shown to be feasible, but the clinically relevant advantages of this technique remain to be demonstrated.

Duplex morphologic features of the reconstructed carotid artery: changes occurring more than five years after endarterectomy.
PURPOSE To determine the late morphologic appearance of the carotid artery after endarterectomy and to relate the morphologic characteristics to the development of recurrent carotid stenosis andExpand

Infrared and Raman spectra of aluminum borohydride, Al(BH4)3
Abstract Gaseous, solid and matrix isolated infrared spectra and liquid and solid Raman spectra are presented for Al(BH 4 ) 3 and Al(BD 4 ) 3 and there is no evidence for any significant structuralExpand

Routine reimplantation of patent inferior mesenteric arteries limits colon infarction after aortic reconstruction.
Ischemic colitis resulting in colonic infarction after aortic reconstruction is a highly lethal complication. Reimplantation of all patent inferior mesenteric arteries should improve this problem butExpand

The use of arm vein conduits during infrageniculate arterial bypass.
To further examine the use of arm vein for bypass to the popliteal or infrapopliteal arteries, we retrospectively reviewed 43 patients undergoing infrageniculate arterial bypass by use of an arm veinExpand

Combined exposure to cigarette smoke and hypercholesterolemia decreases vasorelaxation of the aorta.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the physiologic effects of cigarette smoke exposure and dietary cholesterol on the availability of nitric oxide in aortic vascular rings. METHODSExpand

Rotational atherectomy for treatment of occluded prosthetic grafts.
Potentially, percutaneous rotational atherectomy (RA) can be used to open occluded prosthetic arterial bypass grafts with less morbidity than surgical catheter thrombectomy. However, RA could damageExpand

Cholesterol, But Not Cigarette Smoke, Decreases Rabbit Carotid Artery Relaxation
−3 molar norepinephrine (NE) while the experimental ring was contracted to 50% of maximum. Relaxation of the rings was achieved by adding incremental doses of acetylcholine. Our results showed thatExpand
