AIM Patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) may have bleeding episodes due to the loss of high-molecular-weight (HMW) von Willebrand factor multimers (VWFMs). The absence of HMW-VWFMs and bleeding tendency are usually corrected after aortic valve replacement (AVR). To investigate the process of VWFM recovery and symptoms in patients with severe AS, we(More)
We hypothesized that there are no differences in left ventricular (LV) mechanoenergetics between after hyperpolarized cardioplegic arrest by nicorandil (nicorandil arrest) and after depolarized one by high potassium chloride (KCl arrest). The aim of the present study was to test this hypothesis using LV curved end-systolic pressure-volume relation (ESPVR)(More)
An abnormality in the wing vibration pattern in males of the E(Nc) homeotic mutant of Bombyx mori was investigated. The wild-type (+/+) males show a switching of the rhythmic wing vibrations from a sequential pattern to an intermittent pattern during mating, whereas the E(Nc) mutants show a sequential pattern both before and during mating. Wing motions in(More)
