Low-friction surfaces are critical for efficient joint articulation. The tribological properties of articular cartilage have been studied extensively in native tissue and joints. Despite their importance, very few studies have examined the frictional properties of tissue-engineered cartilage. We have therefore reviewed the relationship between composition,(More)
During storage and transportation of collected cord blood units (CBUs) to the bank prior to their processing and cryopreservation, it is imperative to preserve the functional capacities of a relatively small amount of cells of interest (stem and progenitor cells) which are critical for graft potency. To improve CBU storage efficiency, we conceived an(More)
Echocardiographic dimensions and hemodynamic indexes were determined in 42 patients with borderline hypertension and in 22 with sustained hypertension and the results were compared with findings in 33 normal subjects. In patients with borderline hypertension the thickness of the interventricular septum (IVS) was significantly increased (P less than 0.001),(More)
Systolic time intervals, echocardiographic dimensions and hemodynamic parameters were determined in 42 borderline hypertensive patients with high cardiac output and 33 normal subjects. In borderline hypertensive patients, the preejection period was significantly reduced (P less than 0.001) and was negatively correlated to cardiac index (P less than 0.001).(More)
