Anchoring the mesh in laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal groin hernia repair (TEP) with human fibrin glue has theoretical advantages. However, these have been supported and reported previously only in animal studies. Before the initiation of large patient trials, the authors wanted to confirm the feasibility, assess the costs, and rule out any flagrant(More)
Overdosing of several drugs, such as tricyclic antidepressants, salicylates, and opiates, is known to induce effects like those seen in patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome. By exposing isolated perfused and ventilated rat lungs via the perfusate to six different tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, nortriptyline, imipramine, desipramine,(More)
Tricyclic antidepressants can, when taken in overdose, cause serious pulmonary failure such as the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). In this study we have examined the effects of some tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, imipramine, nortriptyline and desipramine) on the viability and morphology of human endothelial and smooth muscle cells(More)
We have previously shown that tricyclic antidepressants can induce vaso- and bronchoconstriction as well as oedema formation in isolated perfused lungs. This is an effect similar to that seen clinically in adult respiratory distress syndrome. In order to investigate whether endothelin can be a mediator of this reaction, isolated perfused rat lungs were(More)
