Our previous experiments indicated an age- and sex-dependent functional lateralization of a high-affinity choline uptake system in hippocampi of Wistar rats. The system is connected with acetylcholine synthesis and also plays a role in spatial navigation. The current study demonstrates that a single in vivo exposure of 7- or 14-day-old males to a static(More)
A 66-year-old female underwent elective coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Massive pulmonary embolism developed intraoperatively shortly after weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass. A 25-cm large venous embolus was extracted from pulmonary artery by consequently performed open pulmonary embolectomy on the beating heart. Source of extracted embolus was(More)
With continuous perfusion at defined intraluminal pressures isolated right atria from rabbits were examined. Age groups of 3-6, 9-12 and 15-18 days of life were used to measure the chronotropic response to change of atrial pressure over a range of 0.1 to 0.9 kPa (10-90 mm H2O). At transmural pressure of 0.1 kPa (control) the rate of spontaneously beating(More)
INTRODUCTION Prostate cancer is the most common malignant disease in men. The number of cases of prostate cancer has increased dramatically in recent 20 years. Radical prostatectomy is a surgical method for the first-line treatment of localised prostate cancer. We performed the first robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy on December 16th, 2005, achieved(More)
The authors present the case report of a Marfan syndrome patient with aneurysm of ascending, dissecting aneurysm of descending and abdominal aorta. Ascending aorta replacement with aortic valve sparing procedure was performed at first surgery. Later on descending and abdominal aorta were replaced. The patient was reoperated because of a chylus collection in(More)
