PURPOSE We report on our personal technique and the results of US-guided percutaneous treatment of chronic calcific tendinitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS January 1997 to March 1999, seventy patients with known chronic calcific supraspinatus tendinitis were submitted to the US-guided treatment. All patients had undergone plain radiography, US, and physical and(More)
BACKGROUND The physiology of body organs can be affected by gender. Skin and skin appendages are influenced by sex hormones. OBJECTIVE This review work has been undertaken to point out the most conspicuous physiological differences observed between men's and women's skin. METHODS The literature has been searched and relevant results have been gathered.(More)
The physical, chemical, and biochemical factors that accelerate skin aging have been proposed to activate a self-maintained microinflammatory process, one of the expected end results of which is an imbalance in the turnover of macromolecules in the dermis. Surface peroxides are recognized as controllable factors of skin aging, and their accumulation is(More)
Four RNA-polymerizing activities having different subunit composition can be purified from uninfected and from SPO1-infected Bacillus subtilis. Lysozyme and sodium deoxycholate are used for lysing the cells. Polymin P is used for precipitating nucleic acids and DEAE-cellulose chromatography allows separation of enzymatic activity from the residual Polymin(More)
Ageing has been defined as the accumulation of molecular modificationswhich manifest as macroscopic clinical changes. Human skin, unique amongmammalians insofar as it is deprived of fur, is particularly sensitiveto environmental stress. Major environmental factors have beenrecognized to induce modifications of the morphological and biophysicalproperties of(More)
