Rabbits received ethanol p.o. (0.96 g. ml-1, 2.88 g.kg-1) for 30 days. Ischaemia was induced by abdominal aorta ligation for 40 min in animals with or without ethanol treatment. The content of total (TPL) and individual phospholipids, i.e. ethanolamine (PE), choline (PC), serine (PS), phospholipids and sphingomyelin (SM), as well as unesterified cholesterol(More)
A 40-yr-old female Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) developed cellulitis and became lame in her left front leg. A draining tract behind the lateral nail of her left front foot was discovered. This lesion was treated by aggressive irrigation using a variety of disinfectant solutions. Radiographically, there was degeneration and fragmentation of the distal(More)
Hearing thresholds were estimated in four bottlenose dolphins by measuring auditory evoked responses to single and multiple sinusoidal amplitude modulated tones. Subjects consisted of two males and two females with ages from 4 to 22 years. Testing was conducted in air using a "jawphone" transducer to couple sound into each subject's lower right jaw.

The authors examined 12 people under 40 years and 12 above 40 years, mostly healthy volunteers. They investigated the rate of blood flow in the median cerebral artery after compression of the homolateral and contralateral internal carotid. They found that in more advanced age the rate of flow in the mentioned arteries is significantly reduced. During(More)
The authors examined 32 patients with vertigo, 17 patients with focal ischaemia of the brain stem and 24 patients without signs of affections of the central nervous system by transcranial and extracranial Doppler ultrasonography. They measured the flow velocity in the basilar artery (BA), in the intracranial portion of the vertebral artery (VA) and in the(More)
