Osseous fixation techniques have been widely used to provide rigid stabilization in the craniofacial skeleton. Reported sequelae of its usage has been limited to palpation of the screw-plate system and radiological imaging artifacts. Over the past 3 years we have identified miniplates, microplates, and wire sutures on the inner cranial table of the growing(More)
The problems in cryopreserving complex tissues remain poorly understood. In the present study, the viability of cryopreserved complex tissue, including skin and muscle flaps, and tail, was compared to simple artery and vein grafts in a rat model. Forty-four grafts, including the femoral artery (n = 15), femoral vein (n = 9), gracilis muscle flap (n = 8),(More)
Functional vasodilation in arterioles is impaired with chronic ischemia. We sought to examine the impact of chronic ischemia and age on skeletal muscle resistance artery function. To examine the impact of chronic ischemia, the femoral artery was resected from young (2-3mo) and adult (6-7mo) mice and the profunda femoris artery diameter was measured at rest(More)
A review of the literature on the use of transcutaneous Doppler to detect circulating venous bubbles occurring after hyperbaric exposure, with emphasis on the detection of bubbles occurring after relatively small decrements in pressure, is presented. The correlation between circulating bubbles and the occurrence of decompression illness is examined.
