BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Ropivacaine used for axillary plexus block provides effective motor and sensory blockade. Varying clinical dosage recommendations exist. Increasing the dosage by increasing the concentration showed no improvement in onset. We compared the behaviour of a constant dose of ropivacaine 150 mg diluted in a 30, 40 or 60 mL injection(More)
The role of agitation as a prognostic indicator of outcome in 26 patients with severe traumatic closed head injury was studied to explore haloperidol effects on the outcome of rehabilitation treatment. The incidence and degree of agitation and post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) in brain-injured patients undergoing comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation were also(More)
BACKGROUND Mechanical ventilation resulted in increased, decreased or unchanged end-diastolic volumes together with either profoundly decreased or unchanged right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF). The goal of our study was, therefore, to evaluate the effects of positive end-expiratory pressure on measurements of RVEF performed during apneic periods with(More)
Type V collagen (TVC), fibronectin (FN), and laminin (LAM) were detected on the endothelial surface of mechanically injured rat aortas with the help of monospecific antisera and protein A - gold conjugates, carbon film surface replicas, and conventional embedding techniques. Deendothelialized tracks were produced in the thoracic aorta, and the presence of(More)
The effects of lymph stasis on the histological and biochemical properties of the coronary arterial wall and on the coronary circulation were studied in 72 dogs. Cardiac lymph stasis was produced in 52 dogs by cardiac lymphatic blockade whereas in 20 dogs only a sham operation was performed. Blockade of cardiac lymph drainage promoted characteristic injury(More)
