Pterins, heterocyclic compounds widespread in biological systems, are able to photoinduce oxidation of DNA and its components. In the present study, we have investigated the photosensitizing properties of pterin (Ptr), the parent compound of oxidized pterins, using bovine serum albumin (BSA) as target. Aqueous solutions of BSA were exposed to UV-A(More)
Many anaesthetics effect the latency and amplitude of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP). We present a patient who underwent two anterior/posterior spine fusions (A/PSF) at age 11 and 12 years old after resection of a spinal astrocytoma. She did have residual neurologic deficits of her lower extremities. SSEPs were unobtainable during the first surgery(More)
To understand how the parietal pleurae affect the mechanical behavior of the human respiratory system after the chest wall is opened by median sternotomy, we studied 18 anesthetized/paralyzed patients immediately before coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. Elastances and resistances of the total respiratory system (ETr, Rrs) were calculated from(More)
