Regarding the histological findings, we observed that, in healthy pregnancy, the spiral arteries of the myometrium and the decidua that perfuse the placenta undergo severe remodeling, presenting, at the end of process, diameters at least four times larger than those found in the arteries which are not involved in the pregnancy.
In the experimental group, 20ml 40ug/ml ozone water was prepared using the ozone medical apparatus (Fumener, Jiangmen, China) to perfuse the uterine cavity and bilateral fallopian tubes.
Regular physical activity maintains optimal function within the circulatory system, which adequately perfuse the kidneys (Glass & Mackey, 1988a).
Practical relevance to UAE: The presence of aberrant branches not embolized, continuing to perfuse the fibroids or uterus, is a likely cause for treatment failure and MRA could be helpful in detecting this aberrant fibroid arterial supply.
This could have been due to the presence of collateral vessels to perfuse her upper extremities.
As in the first experiments by Langendorff, the retrograde perfusion induces the closure of the aortic valve and no fluid can perfuse the left ventricular chamber.
The left descending artery was then again ligated, and 1% Evans blue was used to perfuse the nonischemic parts of the heart.
Finally, we used hyperglycemic perfusion fluid (HG group) to perfuse placental lobules isolated from women who experienced a normal, nondiabetic pregnancy.
We first unsuccessfully attempted to perfuse the line with sodium heparin (1,000 UI) because fibrin clots are a well-known cause of catheter malfunctioning (Singh, Common, & Perl, 2012) that is mainly caused by peritoneal inflammation during infective peritonitis.
Ten mins were allowed to perfuse the heart in Langendorff's mode; meanwhile pulmonary vein was cannulated to allow the perfusion in working heart mode according to Neely [24].
Developing marine invertebrates in particular have 1) rapid uptake from the experimental medium of the radioactively labeled substrates used to measure biosynthesis (Stephens and Schinske, 1961; Manahan, 1990); 2) less morphological complexity than larger animals, which facilitates uniform distribution of tracer molecules (tRNA loading; Regier and Kafatos, 1977); 3) tractability to perfuse cells with metabolic inhibitors; and 4) sufficiently small size for whole-organism level in vivo measurements.
