BACKGROUND Vascular prosthetic graft infection is a severe complication after open aortic aneurysm repair. Reports of infected endografts are scarce. General treatment consensus with infected graft material is that it should be removed completely. The objective of this study was to describe the incidence of endograft infection after endovascular repair of(More)
Concentration and mixed dissociation constant(s) of three drug acids, H(J)L, isocaine, physostigmine and pilocarpine, at various ionic strengths, I, in the range 0.03-0.81 and 25 degrees C have been determined with the use of regression analysis of potentiometric titration data when common parameter, pK(a), and group parameters E'(0), L(0), and H(T) are(More)
Conventional imaging modalities are unable to depict the early degeneration of articular cartilage in osteoarthritis, especially in small joints. Optical coherence tomography has previously been used successfully in high-resolution imaging of cartilage tissue. This pilot cadaver study demonstrates the use of intra-articular optical coherence tomography in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a light-based imaging technique suitable for depiction of thin tissue layers such as articular cartilage. Quantification of results and direct comparison with a reference standard is needed to confirm the role of OCT in cartilage evaluation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Goat talus articular cartilage(More)
