OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate, from a histological point of view, the effect of photobiomodulation (PBM) with combined low-level laser therapy (LLLT)/light- emitting diode (LED) on porcine skin wound healing. BACKGROUND DATA Most LLLT/LED wound healing studies have been performed on various types of rat models, with their inherent(More)
Cartilage tissue engineering can provide substantial relief to people suffering from degenerative cartilage disease, such as osteoarthritis. The autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application appears to improve cartilage healing due to its ability to positively influence cellular mechanisms, mainly in cells from synovium and cartilage. Primary cultures(More)
Objective This study aimed to compare microfracture and application of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) by local adherent technique enhanced by platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to provide a new approach for the repair of cartilage defect. Design Full-thickness cylindrical defects were created in the medial femoral condyle in 9 New Zealand White rabbits (5(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the sedative and immobilization effect of intranasal administration (INS) of midazolam (MID) without or with INS dexmedetomidine (DXM), and some physiological changes induced by the drugs. The ability of INS atipamezole to reverse the DXM component was also assessed. STUDY DESIGN Prospective 'blinded' experimental study. ANIMALS In(More)
Sheep were used as a model for the examination of radiological and histological changes in bone tissue Sheep were used as a model for the examination of radiological and histological changes in bone tissue following total hip replacement. A unilateral total hip replacement procedure was carried out in sheep with following total hip replacement. A unilateral(More)
Avian osteoblasts have been isolated particularly from chicken embryo, but data about other functional tissue sources of adult avian osteoblast precursors are missing. The method of preparation of pigeon osteoblasts is described in this study. We demonstrate that pigeon cancellous bone derived osteoblasts have particular proliferative capacity in vitro in(More)
