The sensory neuron stimulant drug capsaicin stimulates primary afferent nerve endings in the guinea-pig small intestine, which in turn activate myenteric cholinergic neurons by an unknown mechanism. The tachykinins substance P and neurokinin A are present in primary afferent neurons. This study was performed to assess the possible involvement of endogenous(More)
The long-term results of 30 patients (31 hips) who underwent derotational femoral varus osteotomy for Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease are presented. Pain, leg-length discrepancy, Trendelenburg sign, and range of motion at the operated hip were examined clinically. Radiographic analysis included measurement of the Wiberg angle, epiphyseal index, acetabular index,(More)
The effect of morphine was examined on the circular muscle of guinea pig ileal segments in vitro, with special regard to its interaction with enteric nitric oxide (NO) releasing neurons. In the presence of atropine (10(-6) M), morphine (10(-6) M) caused tonic contraction (approximately 7% of the maximal spasm) which was reversed by naloxone (10(-6) M).(More)
OBJECT In 10 to 50% of cases with neurofibromatosis, skeletal disorders are present, mainly as various deformities of the spine. These deformities can be divided into dystrophic and nondystrophic groups depending on the absence or presence of bone dystrophy. The nondystrophic curves are highly similar to those in idiopathic scoliosis, whereas the dystrophic(More)
Morphological studies indicate that cholinergic, peptidergic and "nitrergic" (nitric oxide releasing) nerves supply the oesophageal muscle. In the present in vitro study, intramural nerves of guinea pig and human oesophagus were activated by means of the ganglion stimulating drug nicotine and electrical field stimulation (EFS) in organ bath experiments.
