This study evaluated the shear bond strength between amalgam and amalgam, amalgam and composite resin, and amalgam and dentin using a 4-META adhesive. Eighty samples were divided into four groups of 20 and were then divided into subgroups of 10 samples for thermocycling procedures. This study indicated that amalgam bonded to amalgam with a 4-META adhesive(More)
Obesity is associated with structural alterations in subcutaneous small resistance arteries. The aim of the present work is to study modifications of perforators vessels of abdominal wall and subcutaneous tissue characteristics in obese patients after massive weight loss. An anatomo-radiologic study was carried out on 15 patients (5M, 10F, mean age 54.9 y),(More)
In spite of recent progress in revascularization and anesthesiology procedures, in vascular centers today there are still patients with Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) who are not considered suitable for revascularization. Most of these patients are elderly, with high co-morbidity factors, poor run off arterial limb vessels, and often with a salvageable limb.(More)
The haemodynamics of skin microcirculation can be quantitatively evaluated by Laser Doppler Fluxmetry (LDF). LDF signal in human skin shows periodic oscillations. Spectral analysis by wavelet transform displays six characteristic frequency intervals (FI) from 0.005 to 2 Hz, related to distinct vascular structures activities: heart (0.6-2 Hz), sympathetic(More)
3-Chloro-Abu and 4-chloro-Nva are biosynthetically incorporated into E. coli peptidyl-Pro cis-trans isomerase B, as substitutes for Val and Leu, respectively. The extent of incorporation is up to ~90%, and substituted protein is catalytically active. By contrast, 4-chloro-Val is not an effective replacement for Ile.
Specimens of the newt, Triturus cristatus carnifex (Laurenti), rendered totally anemic, restore erythron by cyclic waves of erythropoietic activity that alternate with intervals of stasis. Hemolysis is obtained by administering 25 mg/liter of acetylphenylhydrazine in the breeding water for 36 h. The first cycle of erythropoietic activity produces(More)
The hemodynamics of skin microcirculation can be clinically assessed by means of Laser Doppler Fluxmetry. Laser Doppler signals show periodic oscillations because of fluctuations of microvascular perfusion (flowmotion), which are sustained by contractions and relaxations of arteriolar walls rhythmically changing vessels diameter (vasomotion). The wavelet(More)
Laser Doppler Fluxmetry is used to evaluate the hemodynamics of skin microcirculation. Laser Doppler signals contain oscillations due to fluctuations of microvascular perfusion. By performing spectral analysis, six frequency intervals from 0.005 to 2 Hz have been identified and assigned to distinct cardiovascular structures: heart, respiration, vascular(More)
The skin flowmotion of 13 patients suffering from critical limb ischemia (CLI) was studied with wavelet analysis (WA) of the laser Doppler signals (LDS). The WA selects six different frequency components (FCs), each relating to a specific cardiovascular system structures activities; FC I 1-2 Hz heart, FC II 0.2 Hz respiratory, FC III 0.1 Hz myogenic, FC IV(More)
This work elucidates the mechanisms of skin microcirculation response to local heating at 44°C in vasculopathic patients. Laser Doppler and tcpO2 were simultaneously acquired. Patients were selected on the basis of tcpO2: Group A <30 mmHg; Group B 30-50 mmHg; Group C >50 mmHg. The wavelet analysis of signal oscillations displays six frequency intervals.(More)
