ABSTRACT
1. A comparison of smooth muscle thresholds of arterioles and venules, venous fragility, bleeding times (rhexis) and thrombus thresholds in the cheek pouch and mesocaecum of the hamster were made using unipolar stimulation with a microelectrode applied to the wall of the blood vessel. 2. No significant differences were found between the cheek pouch and the mesocaecum with respect to these parameters.

    The article focuses on a patient with homocysteinuria who developed subhyaloid hemorrhages during pars plana vitrectomy/lensectomy for a sub-luxated lens in the right eye. She had also developed preretinal and intraretinal hemorrhages in her fellow eye 6 months earlier, after phacoemulsification...

    Advanced age is associated with decreased stem cell activity. However, the effect of aging on the differentiation capacity of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into cardiovascular cells has not been fully clarified. We investigated whether iPS cells derived from young and old mice are equally...

    Spontaneous renal haemorrhage secondary to renal angiomyolipoma, or Wunderlich syndrome, is rare. Renal angiomyolipomata are composed of abnormal vasculature, smooth muscle and adipose tissue. They are more likely to be symptomatic if they are larger than 4 cm, presenting with a history of flank...
