The regulatory action of the contralateral brain side on nigrostriatal dopaminergic (NSDA) neurons was examined in anesthetized rats using extracellular single-unit recording techniques. The spontaneous activity of NSDA cells was recorded from split-brain, sham-lesioned or intact-brain rats. The three groups of cells did not differ in antidromic latency and(More)
We describe the treatment of a patient presenting with very-late stent thrombosis with the use of a drug-coated balloon. In this patient, optical coherence tomography disclosed that ruptured and complicated neoatherosclerosis was the underlying substrate responsible for the episode of very-late stent thrombosis. The potential use of drug-coated balloons in(More)
A patient presenting with 'edge' in-stent restenosis 12 years after the implantation of a bare-metal stent in the mid-left anterior descending coronary artery is described. Optical coherence tomography disclosed the presence of ruptured neoatherosclerosis at the stent edge. The value of this imaging technique to unravel this unique underlying anatomic(More)
