Decreased DNA Disruption in the Porcine Neocortex with Erythromycin Preconditioning during Prolonged Hypothermic Circulatory Arrest: Evidence for Neuroprotection
We have previously reported that the neocortex is selectively vulnerable to injury in an acute porcine model of hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA) at 18°C. In view of recent evidence showing that pharmacologic preconditioning ...
Modulation of central glucocorticoid receptors in short- and long-term experimental hyperthyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is associated with a significant increase in circulating glucocorticoid levels and hyperactivity of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis. The aim of this study was to examine whether the HPA axis ...
Report of an unusual combination of arterial, venous and neural variations in a cadaveric upper limb
In this study an unusual combination of arterial, venous and neural variations discovered during dissection of cervical, axillary and brachial area of a cadaver is described. Variations are thoroughly described and literature ...
Obstetrical brachial plexus palsy: Lessons in functional neuroanatomy
Obstetrical branchial plexus paralysis is a serious and possibly disabling disorder. While thoroughly described as a clinical entity, much concerning its pathogenesis is still unknown. Basic science studies alongside with ...
Modernization of an anatomy class: From conceptualization to implementation. A case for integrated multimodal-multidisciplinary teaching
It has become increasingly apparent that no single method for teaching anatomy is able to provide supremacy over another. In an effort to consolidate and enhance learning, a modernized anatomy curriculum was devised by ...
The Pterygopalatine Ganglion and its Role in Various Pain Syndromes: From Anatomy to Clinical Practice
The postsynaptic fibers of the pterygopalatine or sphenopalatine ganglion (PPG or SPG) supply the lacrimal and nasal glands. The PPG appears to play an important role in various pain syndromes including headaches, trigeminal ...

Tissue-engineered vascularized bone grafts: Basic science and clinical relevance to trauma and reconstructive microsurgery
Bone grafts are an important part of orthopaedic surgeon's armamentarium. Despite well-established bone-grafting techniques, large bone defects still represent a challenge. Efforts have therefore been made to develop ...
