Changes in magnitude and timing of rearfoot eversion and tibial internal rotation by foot orthoses and their contributions to vertical ground reaction force and knee joint moments are not well understood. The objectives of this study were to test if orthoses modify the magnitude and time to peak rearfoot eversion, tibial internal rotation, active ground(More)
The results of a detailed morphological and morphometrical chromosome analysis of Rana camerani (2n = 26) are described. It was established that the karyotype of this species consisted of three homologous pairs of large metacentrics, two homologous pairs of large submetacentrics, three homologous pairs of small metacentrics, two homologous pairs of small(More)
It has been thought that the spleen is an organ without important functions, until recently. That is, why splenectomy has been the procedure of choice in a treatment of splenic diseases. Even now, when we know the functional [figure: see text] importance of the spleen, splenectomy is performed frequently, regardless of its complications. The need of spleen(More)
Some of serious hepatic diseases with cirrhosis may be complicated by portal hypertension, splenomegaly and hypersplenism. Splenomegaly inhibits regenerative processes of the liver, and also intensifies sequestration of the cellular components of blood up to hypersplenism. Cytopenia caused by hypersplenism is aggravated by negative hepatic influence on bone(More)
The efficacy of cisapride, as compared with cimetidine, in the treatment of erosive esophagitis was studied in a double-blind trial. One hundred and twenty-nine patients were assigned to one of four dosage schedules: cisapride 10 mg b.i.d. (20 mg group) or q.i.d. (40 mg group), or cimetidine 400 mg b.i.d. (800 mg group) or q.i.d. (1600 mg group). Treatment(More)
