BACKGROUND Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a form of endogenous neuroprotection induced by transient, subcritical ischemia in a distant tissue. RIPC effects on cerebral hemodynamics and metabolism have not been explored in humans. This study evaluates hemodynamic and metabolic changes induced by RIPC in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid(More)
STUDY DESIGN A biomechanical study of the compressive creep behavior of the porcine intervertebral disc before and after frozen storage. OBJECTIVE To determine whether frozen storage alters the creep response, hydration, and nuclear swelling pressure of the intact intervertebral disc. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The mechanical response of the disc is(More)
