In this study a three-month follow-up of a previous investigation of videotape preparation before hip replacement surgery is reported. 100 patients who previously participated in a randomized controlled study(More)
Hypoxia-inducible transcription factors (HIFs) control cellular adaptation to low oxygen. In the kidney, activation of HIF is beneficial during injury; however, the specific contribution of HIF-1α in renal endothelial cells (EC) remains elusive. Since EC display tissue-specific heterogeneity, we investigated how HIF-1α affects key functions of glomerular EC(More)
