 Background. Clinical and experimental data on cerebral blood flow (CBF) changes during spinal cord stimulation (SCS) were published since 1986. The aims of the present work are: 1. To find an experimental model of reliable, simple and in vivo monitoring of “early” basilar artery spasm after subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and 2. To investigate the effects(More)
The incidence of opportunistic infections by filamentous fungi is increasing partly due to the widespread use of central venous catheters (CVC), indwelling medical devices, and antineoplastic/immunosuppressive drugs. The case of a 13-year-old boy under treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia is presented. The boy was readmitted to the Pediatric Ward for(More)
Transverse and longitudinal sectioning of undecalcified cortical bone is a commonly employed technique for investigating the lamellar structure of the osteons. Since a flat surface is required, the specimen has to be grinded and then polished. Whereas the smear of debris and inorganic/organic deposits left by these treatments cannot be removed by(More)
PURPOSE To identify the ultramicroscopic structure of idiopathic epiretinal macular membranes (iEMMs) by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). METHODS We examined 28 iEMMs surgically removed from 28 eyes of 28 patients. All specimens, previously observed at stereomicroscope, were treated with an osmium maceration technique. Fine resolution of iEMMs' 3D(More)
Observation of heat-deproteinized cortical bone specimens in incident light enabled the high definition documentation of the osteonal pattern of diaphyseal Haversian bone. This prompted a study to compare these images with those revealed by polarized light microscopy, carried out either on decalcified or thin, undecalcified, resin-embedded sections.(More)
Among the potential hazards of working in a mortuary and handling corpses, the risk of infectious disease acquisition is well-documented, and warrants attention. The main biological risk in this environment is due to infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, blood-borne hepatitis, and agents responsible for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies,(More)
