The intraganglionic laminar endings in the esophagus of the cat and the rhesus monkey show absolute equivalence between the results in both species from the morphological standpoint. The different types of apparatus found are described, with their location in the esophagus and their percentage distribution in relation to the different portions of its wall.(More)
Intraepithelial fibers do occur in the mucosa of the esophagus, as demonstrated by the osmium tetroxide-zinc iodide method in cats and rhesus monkeys. The esophagus is divided into three parts, in order to study the penetration incidence, and the uppermost and the lowest show the greatest density of penetration, while in the middle portion only occasional(More)
Conventional approaches to bone regeneration rarely use multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) but instead use polymeric matrices filled with hydroxyapatite, calcium phosphates and bioactive glasses. In this study, we prepared composites of MWCNTs/polycaprolactone (PCL) for bone regeneration as follows: (a) MWCNTs randomly dispersed on PCL, (b) MWCNTs aligned(More)
The osmium tetroxide-zinc iodide technique has been applied to the study of the tela submucosa and tunica muscularis in the esophagus of the cat and the rhesus monkey. Other than the classical terminal vegetative formation, three types of endings were found, classified as perifascicular, free and intramuscular. The comparative results between cat and rhesus(More)
The comparative study of neuron distribution in the myenteric and submucous plexuses has granted an appraisal of the various neuron types in the oesophagus ganglia of cat and rhesus monkey. Neurons are classified in Dogiel types I and II, plus an intermediate one, the so-called "type III". From the functional point of view, the hypothesis is established(More)
A content-based retrieval system needs feature vectors for database indexation. We adopt the surface segmentation approach to obtain several features for a 3D object which can be used to retrieve objects in a database from a partial request composed from a set of regions. To achieve the segmentation of the surface into several regions we apply the watershed(More)
