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)
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)
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)
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)
