Magnesium reduces vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) calcification in vitro but the mechanism has not been revealed so far. This work used only slightly increased magnesium levels and aimed at determining: a) whether inhibition of magnesium transport into the cell influences VSMC calcification, b) whether Wnt/β-catenin signaling, a key mediator of(More)
The relation between BT-EMG activity and variations of VD (1 to 41 mm of interocclusal distance) was studied in the masseter, anterior temporal, and posterior temporal muscles of eight normal experimental subjects. EMG activity was recorded with surface electrodes, and the VD was measured with a specially designed device. Recordings were performed with(More)
Hip hemiarthroplasty (HHA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) infections are usually considered as one entity; however, they may show important differences. We analyze these differences, as well as predictors of treatment failure (TF) and poor functional status among patients with prosthetic hip infections (PHIs). A multicenter cohort study of consecutive(More)
