Arterial erectile dysfunction: Different severities of endothelial apoptosis between diabetic patients "responders" and "non responders" to sildenafil
Background: The low pharmacological response to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors represents an expression of higher endothelial damage in certain categories of patients with erectile dysfunction and high cardiovascular ...
Effects of short- and long-duration hypothyroidism on function of the rat hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
The effects of hypothyroidism on the functional integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis were investigated in adult male rats. HPA axis function was examined in vivo in sham-thyroidectomized male ...
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 ...
Vascularized bone grafts for the management of skeletal defects in orthopaedic trauma and reconstructive surgery
Bone loss from trauma, neoplasia, reconstructive surgery and congenital defects remains a major health problem. The long-term clinical goal is to reconstruct bony tissue in an anatomically functional three-dimensional ...
Effects of experimentally induced hyperthyroidism on central hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function in rats: In vitro and in situ studies
Hyperthyroidism is associated with hypercorticosteronemia, although the locus that is principally responsible for the hypercorticosteronism remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of hyperthyroidism ...
