A plastic (Plexiglas) chamber for evaluating platelet deposition under controlled hemodynamic conditions has been developed. The perfusion chamber has been designed to retain the cylindrical shape typical of the vasculature, to be flexible enough to accept a variety of biologic and prosthetic materials, and to simulate a broad range of physiologic flow(More)
Platelets have been labeled with a new neutral, lipid-soluble metal complex of indium 111 (111In) and tropolone. Unlike oxine, which is soluble in ethyl alcohol, tropolone is soluble in isotonic saline. Platelet labeling with 111In tropolone can be performed in both acid-citrate-dextrose (ACD) plasma and ACD saline within two hours. Labeling efficiency has(More)
BACKGROUND Tumescent liposuction has proven to be an extremely safe and effective method of liposuction. However, the infusion of tumescent anesthesia can take 1 hour or more to complete. OBJECTIVE To document the types, dosages, and routes of administration of premedication utilized by four experienced tumescent liposuction surgeons. To determine if(More)
We have observed that pigs with Impaired platelet function in the form of severe von Wlllebrand's disease (vWd) are resistant to spontaneous and to diet-Induced aortic atherosclerosis. However, it has been reported that vWd pigs are susceptible to coronary atherosclerosis produced by balloon-Induced injury of coronary arteries combined with an atherogenlc(More)
