BACKGROUND Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) reduces body weight and cardiovascular mortality in morbidly obese patients. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) seems to mediate the metabolic benefits of RYGB partly in a weight loss-independent manner. The present study investigated in rats and patients whether obesity-induced endothelial and high-density(More)
Glaucoma results in an increase in the resistance of the aqueous humor outflow, which in turn leads to an increase of the intraocular pressure (IOP). Several treatments are proposed to reduce and stabilize the IOP that include medications, filtering surgery and glaucoma drainage devices (GDD). So far computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of the eye(More)
x In the second work, we analyze the mechanical properties of the thoracic aorta of the apolipoprotein E (apoE)-deficient mouse. The first goal of this study is to quantify the dysfunction of the aortic wall of the aorta. The second goal is to determine the mechanical properties, and to provide data that can be used in modeling the behavior of the arterial(More)
