Proximal femoral nails with a helical blade are a new generation of implants used for treating transtrochanteric fractures. The blade design provides rotational and angular stability for the fracture. Despite greater biomechanical resistance, they sometimes present complications. In the literature, there are some reports of cases of perforation of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic kidney disease (CKD), erectile dysfunction (ED), and cardiovascular disease share common vascular etiologies and risk factors. AIM Using a rat model, this is the first study to characterize the consequences of CKD in the onset and development of ED associated with differential regional vascular calcification and circulatory changes.(More)
