The repair processes that follow surgical injury constitute the physiopathological basis of peritoneal adhesion phenomena. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of the peritoneal adhesion process on the resistance of colonic anastomoses during the early postoperative period. Sixty Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups (n(More)
Very few data exist on the management of adult patients diagnosed with primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). The objectives of this study were to describe the diagnostic and treatment patterns for ITP and to compare the findings to recent ITP guidelines. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of adult ITP patients diagnosed with primary ITP(More)
Introduction: The aim of the study was to determine the effects of pharmacological manipulation of postoperative intestinal motility on the resistance of colonic anastomoses. Materials and methods: Seventy-one Spraque-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: Group 1 (n = 20; colonic anastomosis + 1 cc of saline solution subcutaneously, daily); Group 2 (n(More)
This paper shows a rigorous approach based on algebraic speci cations and rewriting logic which makes up for the lack of current transformation languages and o ers a balanced rigour-versus-intuition framework for model transformation, focusing on the MDA-QVT standards. To illustrate this approach, an example and some formal applications of these speci(More)
PURPOSE Aim of the present study was to determine effect of a latex drain on colonic resistance and its relation to adhesion phenomena. METHODS Forty Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into two groups (n = 20): Group 1, simple colonic anastomosis; and Group 2, colonic anastomosis with drain "ad latum." Rats were sacrificed four days after surgery, and(More)
La propuesta MDA del OMG está teniendo un gran auge en los últimos años. A pesar de la numerosa documentación existente sobre ella, todavía existen aspectos no de nidos, de nidos de forma imprecisa o a los que todavía no se les ha prestado la su ciente atención. Entre estos aspectos, se ha detectado la ausencia de metodologías para el desarrollo software(More)
The objectives of the present study were: 1) to describe the modifications in motility of the small intestine in response to situations of psychic stress during fasting and postprandial periods. 2) To analyse the possible involvement of the vagal system in these modifications. For this we used a total of 40 dogs. The motility of the small intestine was(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the current scientific and/or clinical evidence supporting the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of rotator cuff pathology. METHODS After a systematic review in PubMed, studies assessing PRP efficacy in the treatment of rotator cuff pathology published since 2013 to date were identified. Data were grouped based on type(More)
INTRODUCTION We made an experimental study of the influence of the peritoneal adherence process on the strength of colic anastomosis. METHOD 60 rats, in three groups of 20. Group I, colic anastomosis; Group II, colic anastomosis with epipoplasty; Group III, colic anastomosis covered with plastic material. They were slaughtered on the fourth post-operative(More)
