The most widely used techniques for graft preservation after localized graft infections are muscle flap closure or antibacterial dressings and irrigations after débridement. Vacuum assisted closure (VAC) has been increasingly used for complex wounds in vascular surgery, including groin infections, but not directly on exposed bypass grafts as a stand-alone(More)
UNLABELLED A strong association between interatrial septal aneurysm (IASA) and stroke has recently led many authors to consider IASA as a potential cardiac source of embolism. We studied the morphological characteristics and main associations of IASA in a large cooperative study based on transoesophageal echocardiographic examinations; 259 IASA were studied(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to prospectively estimate the safety of thrombolytic therapy in elderly patients with massive pulmonary embolism in comparison with that in nonelderly patients. BACKGROUND In massive pulmonary embolism, lysis of thrombi can be achieved faster with thrombolytic therapy than with conventional heparin therapy, but it is(More)
Recently, it has become possible to use laser Doppler techniques to separately quantitate the two components of blood flow, microvascular volume and red blood cell velocity. We used these techniques in 21 normal volunteers to quantitate the effect of postural changes in skin blood flow and its components at 35 degrees C and at 44 degrees C. Postural skin(More)
Early reperfusion of ischemic myocardium is the mean to improve prognosis of acute myocardial infarction. Nevertheless, reperfusion injury due to immediate acidosis correction and subsequent Ca(2+) overload results in formation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore. The consequence is the death of viable myocardium due to onconecrosis and(More)
The authors report a prospective study of correlation between histopathological alterations of the placenta, risk factors and early-onset bacterial infections in 224 premature newborns. They used a mathematical model for evaluation and prediction of neonatal bacterial infection according to the localization in chorioamniotic tissues (chorioamniotic plate,(More)
The authors report a prospective study of the correlation between histopathological alterations in the placenta and the umbilical cord and neonatal infection in 223 newborns. The pathological studies were specifically concerned with the presence of infection as shown by a polymorphonuclear infiltrate at these sites. Inflammatory lesions were demonstrated in(More)
