OBJECTIVE To evaluate and validate, in our laboratory, the essay of myocardial infarction induced by isoproterenol in rats by means of analysis of hematological, biochemical, oxidative stress markers and histopathological parameters. METHODS Thirty young, male, Wistar rats (145 to 230 g) were randomly allocated in two groups: Sham group, which underwent a(More)
Eleven cases of patients bearing basic cellular carcinoma, and one case of patient bearing Kaposi's sarcomatosis, all treated with antibiotics isolated by Goncalves de Lima and Co-workers at the Instituto de Antibióticos, are presented by the authors.

The use of a composite graft with left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and arterial or saphenous vein (SV) grafts can allow the complete revascularization of the left coronary system (LCS) without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and without ascending aorta manipulation (AAM), in order to reduce some complications in the immediate postoperative. This study(More)
BACKGROUND Oral bacteria have been detected in atherosclerotic plaques at a variable frequency; however, the connection between oral health and vascular and oral bacterial profiles of patients with vascular disease is not clearly established.

BACKGROUND The last few years have been marked by striking advances in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG), thanks mainly to developments in instrumentation and technical progress in the revascularization of the posterior arteries of the heart. In 2001, OPCABG was performed on approximately 20% of patients who underwent surgical myocardial(More)
There is a controversy about flow steal when the internal thoracic artery is used, with its remnant branches, to revascularize the coronary system. We report a case of a 64-year-old man who was submitted to revascularization using an in situ right internal thoracic artery, with persisting side branches, to supply the right coronary system. Angiography,(More)

OBJECTIVE To assess the results observed during the early postoperative period in patients who had the posterior coronary arteries revascularized without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), in regard to the following parameters: age, sex, bypass grafts types, morbidity and mortality. METHODS From January 1995 to June 1998, 673 patients underwent myocardial(More)
