We studied the hepato-splanchnic vascular response and changes in O2 extraction capabilities to a reduction in blood flow following endotoxemia. Fourteen anesthetized and mechanically ventilated dogs were divided into two groups of seven each. Group 1 received 2 mg/kg of E. coli endotoxin, and group 2 served as a control. After initial fluid resuscitation(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of adrenergic stimulation on hepatosplanchnic perfusion, oxygen extraction, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha production during endotoxic shock. DESIGN In vivo, prospective, randomized, controlled, repeated-measures, experimental study. SETTING Experimental physiology laboratory in a university teaching hospital. (More)
We explored the effects of the nucleoside transport inhibitor draflazine on regional blood flow, O2 extraction capabilities, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) release in acute endotoxic shock. Fourteen anesthetized and mechanically ventilated dogs received 2 mg/kg of Escherichia coli endotoxin and were divided into two groups. Seven dogs received 0.1 mg/kg of(More)
Willebrand's disease is the most frequent inborn coagulopathy and type 3 is its most severe form. Pregnancy and delivery are critical events in women with Willebrand's disease of type 3. Prophylactic treatment for delivery and early postpartum period is recommended. We report the management of pregnancy and successful delivery of a 32-year-old woman with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the aesthetic and functional results of the Köllner-Hughes tarsoconjonctival flap technique for large defects of over three-quarter of the lower eyelid. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective descriptive study of a series of 15 patients treated between January 2013 and December 2015. We included all patients who underwent reconstructive(More)
Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukemia (AMKL) is a rare subtype of acute myeloid leukemia classified as AML M7 by the French–American–British (FAB) Leukemia Cooperative Study Group. We reviewed the records of children aged less than 18 years with AMKL during the period from January 2003 to December 2010. The diagnosis of AMKL was established on the basis of the(More)
INTRODUCTION The goal of this study is to assess functional and aesthetic results of anterior lamellar resection with lid margin splitting of the upper lid in the treatment of cicatricial trachomatous entropion. PATIENTS AND METHODS Descriptive cross-sectional study of a series of 26 consecutive patients treated between January 2014 and December 2015. All(More)
INTRODUCTION The prevalence of pseudoexfoliation syndrome is estimated at 8 % of all cataracts operated within our institution. The goal of our study was to describe the frequency of intraoperative and postoperative complications and long-term anatomical and functional results of phacoemulsification in pseudoexfoliation syndrome. PATIENTS AND METHODS A(More)
A xenogeneic collagen matrix recently has been suggested as an alternative to connective tissue graft for the treatment of gingival recession. The matrix avoids the second surgical site, and as a consequence could decrease surgical morbidity. This new matrix was used in various clinical situations and compared to connective tissue graft (CTG) in a(More)
