BACKGROUND The role of multiorgan damage in the mortality caused by ischemic limb injury is still not clarified. The objective of this study was to examine the potential protective effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) and iloprost (IL) therapy on lung damage induced by limb ischemia/reperfusion injury in a rabbit model, using both biochemical and(More)
OBJECTIVE Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a subgroup of functional somatic disorders, may be associated with autonomic dysfunction (AD). Heart rate variability (HRV), a measure of autonomic dysfunction, may predict survival.

Mycotic aneurysms occur due to destruction of the vessel wall, either by infection of a previously healthy artery wall, or through secondary infection of a preexisting aneurysm. Although mycotic aneurysms are frequent in femoral artery, mycotic pseudoaneurysms of femoral artery are rare (1, 2). Tianeptine is a tricyclic antidepressant with a unique(More)
OBJECTIVES Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) has been shown to be effective in preventing neurological injuries in animal models of ischaemia, whereas iloprost (IL) prevents ischaemia-related mitochondrial dysfunction and reduces infarction size after focal cerebral ischaemia in animal models. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of combined HBO(More)
