Hypercholesterolemia is a primary risk factor for atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction. We subjected low density lipoprotein receptor-deficient (LDLr -/-) and control (wild-type) mice to 30 minutes of myocardial ischemia and 120 minutes of reperfusion. Myocardial infarction per area at risk (AAR) was noted under baseline(More)
We report on highly resolved core-level and valence-band photoemission spectroscopies of hydrogenated, unreconstructed 6H-SiC(0001) and (0001̄) using synchrotron radiation. In the C 1s core level spectra of 6H-SiC(0001̄) a chemically shifted surface component due to C-H bonds is observed at a binding energy (0.4760.02) eV higher than that of the bulk line.(More)
Rotation errors of the femoral component are held responsible for occurrences such as instability in flexion and midflexion, patellar maltracking, and arthrofibrosis following total knee arthroplasty. However, in many cases, the epicondylar axis cannot be reliably identified due to bone defects or metal artifacts on computed tomography, so alternative(More)
The projection of the fibular head is recommended as a quality indicator of a correct radiographic projection. However, this landmark has yet to be sufficiently validated. The MRIs of 334 knee joints were included. On the MRIs, the distance between the FH and lateral tibial cortical bone was simulated in projections parallel to surgically relevant axes.(More)
Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion is associated with the generation of reactive oxygen metabolites as well as remote, oxidant-mediated lung injury. Oxidants elicit endothelial redox imbalance and loss of vascular integrity by disorganizing several junctional proteins that contribute to the maintenance and regulation of the endothelial barrier. To determine(More)
The rate of self-fertilization (that is, selfing) is a key evolutionary parameter in hermaphroditic species, yet obtaining accurate estimates of selfing rates in natural populations can be technically challenging. Most published estimates are derived from population-level heterozygote deficiency (that is, FIS) or identity disequilibria (for example, the(More)
