Signaling by mTOR is a well-recognized component of the pathway through which mechanical signals regulate protein synthesis and muscle mass. However, the mechanisms involved in the mechanical regulation of mTOR signaling have not been defined. Nevertheless, recent studies suggest that a mechanically-induced increase in phosphatidic acid (PA) may be(More)

We present two patients diagnosed with MALS, the first treated with an open laparotomy by a vascular surgeon and the second using a(More)
In the 1980's science and technology have pushed towards miniaturization. In order to interface to the microscopic world, miniaturized structures are necessary to bridge the gap to the macroscopic world. Well established and developed methods of micro fabrication applications such as the fabrication of micro structures and circuits can used to micromachine(More)
Complications of synthetic mesh have been described in various hernia procedures including migration and erosion, but no previous report mentions this complication after liver resection. This case describes a patient who had undergone a left hepatic resection with mesh pledgets sutured along the cut edge of the liver. He remained complication-free until(More)
