PURPOSE We compared MRI of the membranous labyrinth in patients with chronic non-neoplastic inner ear disease and MR signs of labyrinthine fibrosis and controls depending on their age, in order to establish whether there were any MR differences regarding patient age groups, control age groups and between the patients and controls themselves.

The aim of this study was to evaluate 3D CISS, unenhanced 3D MP-RAGE and contrast enhanced 3D MP-RAGE for the diagnosis of neoplastic, vascular and inflammatory lesions of the cerebellopontine angle, the inner auditory canal, the labyrinth and the facial nerve 42 MR examinations were performed on a total of 38 patients (25 males, 13 females; aged 1-77(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and insulin interact with related receptors to lower plasma glucose and to exert mitogenic effects. Recombinant human IGF-I (rhIGF-I) was recently shown to decrease serum levels of insulin and C-peptide in fasted normal subjects without affecting plasma glucose levels. In this study we have investigated in six healthy(More)
The aims of this study were to 1) determine if hypergravity (HG) squats can produce foot forces similar to those measured during 10-repetition maximum (10RM) squats using weights under normal 1-G(z) condition, and 2) compare the kinematics (duration and goniometry) and EMG activities of selected joints and muscles between 10RM and HG squats of similar total(More)
The role of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), its enteric locus of action, and receptor subtypes involved in the regulation of jejunal contractions were investigated by close intra-arterial infusions in conscious dogs. Close intra-arterial infusions of 5-HT in short segments of the jejunum stimulated phasic contractions that were blocked completely by atropine,(More)
