Superficial venography was used in nine lower limbs of eight patients with recurrent varicose veins occurring after high ligation or stripping. This technique demonstrated four different types of recurrence and identified the cause in individual patients. The most common type of recurrence was not a missed tributary of the long saphenous or a missed(More)
The relationships between glycolytic potential and growth performance, carcass traits, and pork quality were investigated in a group of 72 pigs from the same genetic line. Glycolytic potential (GP) was determined on live-animal biopsy samples and postmortem samples taken from the longissimus muscle, and free glucose concentration was measured on the exudate(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of live weight on the plasma acid-base response of pigs subjected to various handling intensities. Eighty pigs (equal numbers of barrows and gilts) were used in a completely randomized block design with a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of the following treatments: 1) live weight (light [104 kg] vs.(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the effects of longissimus glycolytic potential (GP) and of time of feeding of supplemental magnesium sulfate heptahydrate on carcass and pork quality traits. The study was carried out in a 2 x 2 x 4 factorial arrangement; the treatments were sex (castrate vs gilt), GP (Low [normal] vs High), and time of feeding of(More)
1. Extraneuronal uptake of noradrenaline (NA) was examined in the cat spleen first by perfusing with NA for 10 min, followed by a 2-min wash to clear the extracellular fluid, then measuring the amount retained, its subcellular distribution and the tissue components involved as revealed by the development of the characteristic fluorescence. Secondly, thin(More)
Effects of ractopamine hydrochloride (RAC) on carcass parameters in heavy weight (133.24±8.07kg) finishing pigs (n=278) given amino acid fortified (AA) or 16% crude protein (CP) diets were evaluated. A total of seven experimental diets were formulated; RAC was added at 0, 5 and 20ppm to the 16% CP diets (CP0, CP5 and CP20, respectively) and at 0, 5, 10 and(More)
A total of 736 pigs was used in a study with a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial arrangement to investigate the effects of and interactions between sire line (Line A vs. B), floor space (unrestricted vs. restricted), and gender (barrow vs. gilt) on growth performance, BW, and protein and estimated lipid accretion curves from 40 to 120 kg of BW. Pigs were by eight Line-A(More)
