Continuous monitoring of renal cortical blood flow (RCBF) in the perioperative setting of aortic or renal vascular surgery could facilitate the early detection of vascular complications, possibly resulting in a reduction of postoperative renal failure. A new prototype system for measurement of parenchymous organ perfusion based on the principle of thermal(More)
Endothelin (ET) and its precursor big-ET were synchronously analyzed by RIA in liver biopsies and systemic plasma during porcine orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) before graft harvesting (phase A), after cold storage (phase B), and early (phase C) and late reperfusion (phase D). Tissue and plasma concentrations were correlated with length of survival(More)
Minimally processed refrigerated ready-to-eat fishes may offer health risk of severe infection to susceptible individuals due to contamination by the psychrotolerant bacterium L. monocytogenes. In this work, inhibition of L. monocytogenes by a plant extract and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) was studied in model fish systems kept at 5 °C for 35 days. For that,(More)
AIM Usually, in-situ preparation of the hepatic hilar structures is performed prior to the perfusion with preservation solution. Aim of this study was to investigate mechanical effects of liver preparation on the hepatic microcirculation. METHODS 16 pigs (German landrace) were randomized in two groups. In both groups, laparotomy was performed after(More)
BACKGROUND The value of stress harmonic power Doppler imaging (HPDI) for the evaluation of myocardial perfusion has never been assessed in patients after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the agreement between stress HPDI and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging for the assessment of myocardial perfusion after(More)
