SUMMARY A new acrylic glue, Glubran 2, is now available on the European market. It bears the CE mark with several surgical indications and the specific indication for neuroradiological endovascular use. Despite this approval, to our knowledge its use is still limited to surgery and no injections have been made in human patients. This study was designed to(More)
The prevention of oxidant-induced damage following reperfusion was experimentally evaluated. Two pharmacological regimens containing different combinations of antioxidant factors and membrane-stabilizing compounds, such as alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), methionine, dexamethasone, mannitol and cysteine, were administered. The reduced/oxidized glutathione(More)
The Data Acquisition system of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at CERN assembles events at a rate of 100 kHz, transporting event data at an aggregate throughput of 100 GByte/s. We are presenting the design of the 2nd generation DAQ system, including studies of the event builder based on advanced networking technologies such as 10 and 40 Gbit/s Ethernet(More)
Infections caused by synthetic prostheses are relatively rare (1.5-6%) but serious complication in vascular surgery. There is no doubt that during and immediately after surgery bacterial contamination may occur. An in vitro study was carried out in the Vascutek laboratories, which revealed a high affinity between prostheses in Dacron gel and Rifampicin.(More)
The DAQ system of the CMS experiment at CERN collects data from more than 600 custom detector Front-End Drivers (FEDs). During 2013 and 2014 the CMS DAQ system will undergo a major upgrade to address the obsolescence of current hardware and the requirements posed by the upgrade of the LHC accelerator and various detector components. For a loss-less data(More)
OBJECTIVE To design an alternative experimental model of ischemia-reperfusion syndrome. Our model mimics the clinical pattern of the syndrome and also assesses the efficacy of therapeutical protocols. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Ischemia was induced under general anaesthesia in the posterior limbs of 10 sheep by occluding the aorta and vena cava by means of(More)
Many treatments have been proposed for the prevention of the revascularisation syndrome following embolectomy or thrombectomy in patients with severe ischaemia. These include the administration of diuretics, bicarbonate, buffer solutions, free radical scavengers, washing out the venous blood from the ischaemic leg, or systemic dialysis. The aim of our study(More)
