The aim of the present work was to study the morphological implications between the elastin and the phenotypic expression of the vascular smooth muscle cells. For this purpose, sixty human tortuous arteries from different territories have been studied. We have measured the morphometric indexes Intimal Thickening Index and Elastolyse Index and they have been(More)
There is a paucity of studies in the literature concerning the structural characteristics of the arterial wall in the abdominal region using human material and specialized morphometric techniques. In the present study we carry out the morphometric study, describing a series of structural peculiarities in 12 segments of the human splenic artery. Among these(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of vasectomy by different fulguration methods on the rat testicular structure. METHODS Experimental vasectomy was performed in Wistar rats by means of the Shapiro and Silber, and the Schmidt cauterization techniques. The animals were orchidectomized between 7 days and 9 months following vasectomy. A morphological and(More)
Study of the effect on testis structure in the dog caused by a vasectomy. Emphasis is made on how in animals undergoing ligature of both ends of the ductus deferens, existence of structural changes, which are consistently present, are proportional to the time elapsed from performance of vasectomy. Such changes are revealed by: degeneration of germinal(More)
The AZTI's marine biotic index (AMBI), an ecological indicator for managing estuarine and coastal waters worldwide, was tested in two fjords in Chilean Patagonia. The Aysen Fjord (42° Lat. S) supports intensive salmon farming in coastal ecosystems, while the Baker Fjord (48° Lat. S) is currently just beyond the limit of the southern expansion of salmon(More)
We have performed experimental vasectomies in dog in order to study different repercussions of various surgical techniques on the testicular structure. The closed technique, with ligature of both cut ends of the sectioned vas deferens caused a severe tubular atrophy, which finally destroyed the architecture of the testis with compensating hypertrophy of the(More)
