The neuromuscular effects of three new nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking drugs, atracurium, vecuronium and Duador, were investigated in surgical patients under balanced anaesthesia. (The numbers of patients in each study are given in the tables.) There were no significant differences in the neuromuscular effects of the three agents. None showed any(More)
The significance of the reperfusion period in the pathophysiology of complete occlusion of the intestinal circulation is controversial. Our study was designed to evaluate the exact magnitude of reperfusion-induced intestinal mucosal damage in a standardized rat model of complete segmental arterial ischemia as a function of the occlusion time. Intestinal(More)
The goals of this study were to investigate the in vivo effects of intestinal ischemia-reperfusion on mucosal mast cells, and to evaluate the morphological changes induced by standardized arterial occlusion in anesthetized rats. Complete segmental ileal ischemia was maintained for 15, 30, or 60 min, and was followed by a 30 min reperfusion period.(More)
In vitro experiments on the rat phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm preparation, stimulated directly or indirectly with supramaximal impulses at 0.1 Hz revealed that pethidine in concentrations greater than 5 micrograms ml-1 caused a rapid increase of the twitch. This was maximal (60% increase during direct and 70% increase during indirect stimulation) with(More)
Fast effortless reading has been associated with the Visual Word Form Area (VWFA), a region in the ventral visual stream that specializes in the recognition of letter strings. Several neuroimaging studies of dyslexia revealed an underactivation of this region. However, most of these studies used reading tasks and/or were carried out on adults. Given that(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the opinions of vascular surgery trainees on the new Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) guidelines. METHODS A questionnaire was developed and electronically distributed to trainee members of the Society for Vascular Surgery. RESULTS Of 238 eligible vascular trainees, 38 (16%) participated. Respondents were(More)
