Adrenomedullin induces pulmonary vasodilation but does not attenuate pulmonary hypertension in a sheep model of acute pulmonary embolism
(Life Sciences, 2015-10-15) [Artigo]
The pulmonary vasodilation induced by adrenomedullin may be beneficial in the acute pulmonary embolism (APE) setting. This study examined effects of adrenomedullin in sheep with microsphere-induced APE. Twenty four ...
Ischemic postconditioning and subanesthetic S(+)-Ketamine infusion: effects on renal function and histology in rats
(BioMed Research International, 2015) [Artigo]
Background. Ischemic postconditioning (IP) in renal Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) models improves renal function after IRI. Ketamine affords significant benefits against IRI-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). The present ...
Analgesic and antihyperalgesic effects of dipyrone, meloxicam or a dipyrone-meloxicam combination in bitches undergoing ovariohysterectomy
(Veterinary Journal, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
The analgesic and antihyperalgesic effects of dipyrone, meloxicam or a dipyrone-meloxicam combination were compared in dogs undergoing elective ovariohysterectomy. In a double-blinded, prospective, randomised design, 40 ...
Effects of different inspired oxygen fractions on sildenafil-induced pulmonary anti-hypertensive effects in a sheep model of acute pulmonary embolism
(Life Sciences, 2015-04-15) [Artigo]
Aims: Sildenafil is a pulmonary anti-hypertensive agent whose action could be modified by different fractions of inspired oxygen (FiO(2)). We compared the effects of pure oxygen (FiO(2) > 90%) or room air (21% FiO(2)) ...
A randomised controlled trial of periconal eye blockade with or without ultrasound guidance
(Anaesthesia, 2015-05-01) [Artigo]
We randomly allocated 129 participants with normal eyes to periconal blockade with (n=69) or without (n=60) ultrasound guidance before cataract surgery. There was no difference in the rates of complication, 1/69 and 0/60, ...
Sevoflurane induces DNA damage whereas isoflurane leads to higher antioxidative status in anesthetized rats
(Biomed Research International, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Taking into account that there are controversial antioxidative effects of inhalational anesthetics isoflurane and sevoflurane and absence of comparison of genotoxicity of both anesthetics in animal model, the aim of this ...
