Experiments were performed in anaesthetized dogs to find out whether the response of decreases in vagus nerve activity to distension of the urinary bladder is affected by changes in carotid sinus pressure. The carotid sinuses were vascularly isolated and perfused with blood at constant flow. Both ureters were cannulated and the urinary bladder was distended(More)
1. To test whether distension of the urinary bladder causes a consistent change in activity in efferent renal nerve fibres, bladder distension was performed in anaesthetized dogs. The carotid sinuses were vascularly isolated and perfused with blood at constant flow. Both ureters were cannulated and the urinary bladder was distended with warm Ringer solution(More)
During last decade, increased knowledge of the pathophysiology of portal hypertension (PHT) has resulted in the use of new pharmacological targets; most importantly for the reduction of intrahepatic resistance, which is now recognized to be due in part to activated stellate cell contraction. Orally active angiotensin II receptor antagonists represent a(More)
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) means accumulation of fat mainly triglyceride exceeding 5 % of liver weight, affecting approximately 20% of population in developed countries. Thyroid dysfunction have been frequently associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The aim of this study is to determine any association between nonalcoholic fatty(More)
Objective: We evaluate the role of the different imaging modalities in postoperative assessment of recipients of living donor liver graft. Methods: 30 patients were included. They underwent routine laboratory and radiological investigations. Ultrasound and Doppler are the corner stone tools. CT scan was performed for suspected vascular abnormalities. MRCP,(More)
