Extracellular fluid was topically sampled with a dialysis probe during electrocorticography from the exposed cerebral cortex in 23 patients undergoing epilepsy surgery. Sampling was done in parallel from epileptiform regions and from non-epileptic areas. The former were classified according to the histopathology, into neoplastic, non-tumoral or 'special(More)
Early axial dynamization and its effect on experimental tibial bone healing was compared with healing under rigid fixation in a time-sequenced manner using dogs. An external fixator that could be rigidly locked or set to allow free axial movement while preventing bending and shear was used. Both tibias were osteotomized and externally fixed, leaving a gap(More)

However, whether these anti-inflammatory properties affect acute inflammation is not known. The aim of the present study was therefore to(More)
