The time course and specificity of the changes in dendritic morphology following deafferentation were examined in nucleus laminaris of young chickens. The dendrites of nucleus laminaris neurons are segregated into dorsal and ventral domains, which are innervated separately from the ipsilateral and contralateral nucleus magnocellularis, respectively.(More)
This study describes qualitative and quantitative changes in dendritic ultrastructure during the rapid atrophy of nucleus laminaris (NL) dendrites following deafferentation. The dendrites of n. laminaris neurons in the chick auditory system are segregated into dorsal and ventral dendritic tufts, which receive spatially separated innervation from the(More)
Ovarian artery aneurysms have rarely been reported in the literature, with almost all being unilateral and occurring in the peripartum period. We herein describe a unique case of a postmenopausal patient with a ruptured ovarian aneurysm and an intact contralateral aneurysm that were both successfully treated by endovascular techniques.
Neurons intracellularly filled with biocytin and labelled with nickel-intensified diaminobenzidine (DAB/Ni) can be imaged on the confocal scanning laser microscope in order to obtain three-dimensional and optical section images of neurons. Intensification of the DAB reaction product with nickel was found to be crucial for obtaining a workable signal level.(More)
N. laminaris dendrites begin to atrophy almost immediately after they are deafferented. Accompanying this rapid change in shape is a loss of microtubules and neurofilaments at the base of the dendrite, and a decrease in the density of the dendritic cytoplasm. However, degenerative changes in the dendritic plasma membrane were not evident until 2 days after(More)
Studies of labeled neurons at the light-microscopic level often pinpoint a substructure of particular interest, i.e., a synapse or a spine. An ultrastructural investigation would explain a lot about how these structures arose, how they function, and how they are regulated. Finding a small region in a large block can require constant checking during(More)
PURPOSE The surgical management of chronic atherosclerotic renal artery occlusion (RA-OCC) was studied. METHODS From January 1987 through December 1996, 397 consecutive patients were treated for atherosclerotic renal artery disease. Ninety-five hypertensive patients (mean blood pressure, 204 +/- 31/106 +/- 20 mm Hg; mean medications, 3.0 +/- 1.1 drugs)(More)
PURPOSE Over the past 20 years, there have been numerous advances in our ability to detect and to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). We hypothesized that these advances would lead to (1) an increase in the rate of elective repair and a decrease in the incidence of ruptured AAA (rAAA) and (2) a decrease in operative deaths for both elective AAA (eAAA)(More)
Endovascular infections after percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty with stenting (PTRAS) are rarely reported. Because strict longitudinal follow-up of patients undergoing PTRAS is lacking, the true incidence of such complications remains obscure. We report the first case of a patient with an infected renal artery pseudoaneurysm and de novo mycotic(More)
We have assessed the properties and usefulness of confocal scanning laser microscopy in the reflection mode for the study of neuronal morphology. In this mode, the confocal microscope detects the light reflected off the specimen as opposed to the light emitted by a fluorescent label. Neurons in slices of rat hippocampus were filled with biocytin and reacted(More)
