OBJECT Fenestration of the floor of the third ventricle is vital to the success of endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) in treating patients with noncommunicating hydrocephalus. A generous prepontine interval (PPI) is generally accepted as one anatomical feature that may affect the safety and functionality of ETV. Whether a diminished PPI influences the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether canine tumor cell lines express functional tissue factor and shed tissue factor-containing microparticles. SAMPLE Cell lines derived from tumors of the canine mammary gland (CMT12 and CMT25), pancreas (P404), lung (BACA), prostate gland (Ace-1), bone (HMPOS, D-17, and OS2.4), and soft tissue (A72); from normal canine renal(More)
In the present study, we designed and developed a novel double-layer parallel-plate flow chamber (PPFC) to study the dynamic response of vascular endothelial cells to controlled levels of shear stress. In addition, the effects of fluid shear stress on the structure and function of endothelial cells were examined to validate whether a novel PPFC can be(More)
The reperfusion of blood flow occurred in a number of conditions such as stroke and organ transplantation immensely augments tissue injury and causes more severe damage than prolonged ischemia. In the present study, we designed a novel double-layer parallel-plate flow chamber (PPFC) to develop an in vitro ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury model and examined(More)
