Structure and biomechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba: evidence for evolutionary adaptations to diving.
This study analyzes the structure and mechanical properties of the trachea of the striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba, one of the most common cetacean species. The cetacean trachea is made up ofExpand

Comparative analysis of calf and cow oocytes during in vitro maturation
To determine possible causes of reported differences between developmental competence of oocytes isolated from prepubertal (10‐ to 14‐week‐old calves) and adult cows, three parameters were analysed,Expand

Branched-chain amino acids.
Our study is focused on evaluation and use of the most effective and correct nutrients. In particular, our attention is directed to the role of certain amino acids in cachectic patients. DuringExpand

A numerical and experimental study of compliance and collapsibility of preterm lamb tracheae.
Knowledge of the mechanical behaviour of immature tracheae is crucial in order to understand the effects exerted on central airways by ventilatory treatments, particularly of Total LiquidExpand

Do cardiac stabilizers really stabilize? Experimental quantitative analysis of mechanical stabilization.
In order to assess the three-dimensional movement of the coronary arteries both during normal cardiac activity and after mechanical stabilization, a polypropylene black marker was placed in 10 pigsExpand

Experimental and computational biomechanical characterisation of the tracheo-bronchial tree of the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) during diving.
Dolphins have adapted their anatomic structures to survive in the water environment and so far, the behaviour of their respiratory system during diving has not been fully understood, since they beingExpand

Finite element analysis of the mechanical behavior of preterm lamb tracheal bifurcation during total liquid ventilation.
Knowledge of the mechanical behavior of immature airways is crucial to understand the effects exerted by ventilation treatments, namely by Total Liquid Ventilation (TLV). A computational approach wasExpand
