A multiplex PCR with four primer-pairs was designed to identify the five main known SCCmec types. A clear and easily discriminated band pattern was obtained for all five types. The SCCmec type was identified for 98% of 312 clinical isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). SCCmec type IV was by far the most common SCCmec type among(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study of the pig was to investigate the responses of smooth muscle of the bladder and the urethral sphincter to preganglionic parasympathetic stimulation, and to assess the effect on the lower urinary tract of IV administration of alpha,beta-methylene-ATP. MATERIALS AND METHODS In seven anaesthetised female pigs, the responses to(More)
UNLABELLED We investigated the effect of efferent stimulation of the pelvic (PN), hypogastric (HGN) and pudendal (PuN) nerves on ano-rectal motility in Göttingen minipigs using an impedance planimetry probe. Changes in the rectal cross-sectional area (CSA) at five axial positions and pressures in the rectum and anal canal were investigated simultaneously.(More)
BACKGROUND Control of defaecation and continence may be lost in patients with spinal cord injury. Electrical stimulation of sacral nerve roots to promote defaecation simultaneously activates both the rectum and the external anal sphincter (EAS), and may actually obstruct defaecation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the EAS could be blocked(More)
PURPOSE Manometry and pressure-volume measurements are commonly used to study anorectal physiology. However, the methods are limited by several sources of error. Recently, a new impedance planimetric system has been introduced in a porcine model. It allows simultaneous determination of anorectal pressures and multiple rectal luminal cross-sectional areas.(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of electrical pelvic nerve stimulation (PNS) on recto-anal motility. The response to PNS was investigated in 8 alpha-1-chloralose anaesthetized pigs. Anal and rectal pressure and rectal cross sectional area (CSA) were recorded by manometry and impedance planimetry, respectively. A new probe design allows(More)
Conventional mano-volumetric techniques cannot measure changes in circumferential dimensions at several axial positions within a bowel segment. Our aims were to validate a new impedance planimetry probe for simultaneously measuring the cross-sectional area (CSA) at five axial positions in vitro and in vivo in 10 anesthetized pigs. The day-to-day coefficient(More)
