Objective: There is functional and morphological evidence that interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) may play a role in nitric oxide (NO) dependent signal transduction. However, little is known about the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) containing ICC during inflammation.¶Materials and Methods: Immunocytochemical methods were used for the ultrastructural(More)
With its abundance of neurons and immunocytes, the gut is a potentially important site for the study of the interaction between the nervous and immune systems. In this electron microscopic study we have investigated the distribution of substance P (SP)- and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-immunoreactive (IR) nerve terminals and the immunocytes(More)
This study evaluates the durability of a novel tissue engineered blood vessel (TEBV) created by seeding a natural vascular tissue scaffold (decellularized human saphenous vein allograft) with autologous adipose-derived stem cells (ASC) differentiated into endothelial-like cells. Previous work with this model revealed the graft to be thrombogenic, likely due(More)
Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters have been reported to have complication rates up to 35%. Penetration of surrounding retroperitoneal structures is an uncommon, but potentially serious, complication, with several reports in the literature. We present a unique case of a 34-year-old intravenous drug user with infected IVC filter struts penetrating multiple(More)
