BACKGROUND This study was conducted to determine whether replacement of fibrinogen is useful in reversing dilutional coagulopathy following severe haemorrhage and administration of colloids. METHODS In 14 anaesthetized pigs, approximately 65% of the estimated blood volume was withdrawn and replaced with the same amount of gelatin solution to achieve(More)
The striated sphincter of the male urethra and its innervation are still a subject of controversy. Essentially, two concepts of its anatomy can be found in the literature. Some authors describe the rhabdosphincter as part of the urogenital diaphragm caudal to the prostate, others as a striated muscle which extends from the base of the bladder to the(More)
UNLABELLED We sought to determine the effects of a combination of vasopressin and epinephrine on neurologic recovery in comparison with epinephrine alone and saline placebo alone in an established porcine model of prolonged cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). After 4 min of cardiac arrest, followed by 3 min of basic life support CPR, 17 animals were(More)
Irradiation impacts on the viability and differentiation capacity of tissue-borne mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), which play a pivotal role in bone regeneration. As a consequence of radiotherapy, bones may develop osteoradionecrosis. When irradiating human bone-derived MSC in vitro with increasing doses, the cells' self-renewal capabilities were greatly(More)
The interface between bone and ionomer cement has been studied in twelve young adult pigs 1-6 months after anterior cervical discectomy, removal of adjacent end plates and grafting of the bone defect with ionomer cement. Methods used to study the interface were fluorescence microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, electron microprobe analysis and(More)
The collagen microfibrils of the amniotic connective tissue are irregularly textured. In all a preference for a meridional orientation perpendicular to the placental-rim can be observed. There are randomly dispersed weak spots between dense bundles of collagen fibres. The chorion connective tissue consists also of fibril bundles in a meridional main(More)
