Argon-enhanced coagulation (AEC) is a method for operative coagulation of tissues that utilizes a jet of argon gas encompassing an electrofulgaration arc. Concern has been raised that the argon jet may produce harmful venous gas embolization. Two questions were addressed by this study. First,...
Calcium channel blockade has been found to attenuate nephrotoxicity of cyclosporine. However, it is not known whether intrarenal vasoconstriction caused by cyclosporine is totally mediated by vascular smooth muscle calcium influx. To study the protective effects of two calcium blockers on...
A model was developed for evaluation of cardiovascular parameters in conscious baboons exposed to altered gravitational environments. Baboons were trained to sit quietly in a confinement chair of unique design which allowed a range of normal physical activity. They were then instrumented with...
Silastic catheters were fabricated and aseptically implanted through the skin into the jugular vein of 64 dogs with the intravascular tip located in the right atrium. Solutions were infused through the catheter at 2 to 2.5 mL/h by a portable pump worn by the dog. Following 9.2 Gy total body...
A model of orthotopic liver transplantation in pigs was developed to investigate reperfusion injury of the liver. To have direct access to the liver for organ monitoring a relaparotomy was performed 6 h after revascularization. The details of modification in anesthesia and surgical technique are...
A bilateral cochleotomized surgical rat model, needed for a study involving microwave effects, was developed, standardized, and assessed for reproducibility. After a review of the literature concerning attempts and approaches with various species, a technique involving an approach through the...
Fourteen mature New Zealand white female rabbits had a right, cemented, tibial hemiarthroplasty using a stemmed, fluted, titanium alloy, condylar-type prosthesis. In one group (seven rabbits), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) was used to cement the prosthesis firmly. In a second group (seven...
The left latissimus dorsi skeletal muscle of seven male goats was prepared and applied circumferentially to the descending aorta just below the subclavian artery. Stimulation of the neural pedicle of the latissimus dorsi was performed in an attempt to convert it to a fatigue-resistant...
