    Experimental studies on the mechanical behavior of 11 human common carotid arteries at different values of internal pressure and axial force were performed on a device allowing us to measure the internal pressure, axial force, and circumferential and longitudinal deformations of the vessel. The...

    Lymphocytes continuously circulate between the bloodstream and lymphoid organs, and their migration into lymphatic tissues presumably occurs through selective mechanisms. Although bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue (BALT) is known as an inductive tissue of the common mucosal immune system,...

    Purpose: Preemptive ligation of the thoracic duct (TD) is occasionally performed during cardiothoracic procedures to prevent chylothorax. Landmarks for localizing this structure are thus important to the surgeon during such procedures. One historically used area for identifying this structure in...

    Acute rupture of the thoracic aorta following blunt chest trauma is associated with an 80–85 % pre-hospital mortality rate.(1) In up to 20 % of survivors, the surrounding adventitia and mediastinal structures provide stabilization to the site of transection — creating a...

    Objectives: To prove whether different indications for valve sparing aortic root reconstruction may have an impact on the outcome and longevity of the repair. Methods: From July 1993 to March 2003, the reimplantation technique for valve sparing aortic root reconstruction was applied to 232...

    The extubation along with the intubation is one of the critical moments of the general anesthesia development. Currently, there aren't any algorithms or sequences of procedures design for extubation, that is why establishing previously an action strategy, having monitoring, appropriate material...

    An 11-month-old male child weighing 8 kg was brought to the plastic surgery out-patient department by his parents with chief complaints of sudden increase in size of a swelling over the upper lip and difficulty in feeding for the last 7 days. It was diagnosed as a case of hemangioma of the upper...
