In the normogonadic group, an increase in the percentage of sclerosed glomeruli was observed when comparing the experimental group to the control group.
The difference in the values of glomerular diameter in the current study was statistically significant (p value = 0.001); in CsA treated group diameter of the glomerulus was significantly reduced when compared to groups A and D, this is in agreement with previous studies on CsA induced nephropathy which reported sclerosed and shrunken glomeruli with widening of Bowman's space.11 These glomerular changes are possibly due to altered renal hemodynamics caused by CsA36 which decreased glomerular filtration rate by causing increased afferent arteriolar resistance due to vasoconstriction.37 High levels of reactive oxygen species in endothelial and mesangial cells were also demonstrated.38 Moreover, vascular necrosis and glomerular thrombosis by CsA has also been reported.39
The poorer results in diabetics might be explained by increased arterial disease or even impaired venous endothelial function.28 It could also be due to infectious complication because of immuno-suppression in addition sclerosed arteries also make anastomotic techniques difficult.
Although it has been generally accepted that inserting a needle into the SIJ space can be done safely and reliably under fluoroscopic guidance without special manual skills, (27), (32) for general orthopedic or even spinal surgeons, the intraarticular injection may be difficult as many are not familiar with this procedure, and the SIJ of elderly patients is mostly sclerosed. (11) In addition, the risk for anatomic variations and complex integrity also make it difficult to establish a complete view of the SIJ under fluoroscopic guidance.

One place where we will find discussion of soap opera is in textbooks and this hidden but important work indicates how debate about soap opera has sclerosed. (6) It is indeed the purpose of textbooks to simplify and make comprehensible a body of knowledge in order to provide students with what are deemed to be suitable stepping-stones at appropriate levels.
The darker and more sclerosed part on the back of the cephalothorax includes a central anterior region in form of a violin, the "neck" pointing towards the abdomen [17] from where the name "violin spider" or "fiddle back spiders" derives [8,45,71] (Figure 1).
Yet unlike fast food chains, which are generally characterized as sterile hegemons that force-feed us like foie gras geese, these independently owned and operated greasy spoons are touted as the very (sclerosed) heart of whatever town they're situated in, the key to the region's unique flavor, and, ultimately, the essence of that great, multicultural melting pot that puts every homogenizing fast food fryolator to shame: America!
