Autologous microvascular submandibular gland (SMG) transfer is an effective treatment for severe keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS). However, epiphora (excessive tear secretion) may occur after the successful transfer of whole submandibular gland because tear secretion level is closely related to the size of the transferred gland. The aim of this study was ...

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm is associated with changes of several components of arterial wall. Vascular glycosaminoglycans contribute to the non-thrombogenic activity of blood vessels. We investigated whether modifications of glycosaminoglycans in human abdominal aortic aneurysm affect their anticoagulant properties. METHODS: Glycosaminoglycans were extracted from abdominal aortic aneurysm ...

Thrombosis occurs at sites of injury to the vessel wall, by inflammatory processes leading to activation of platelets, platelet adherence to the vessel wall and the formation of a fibrin network. A thrombus that goes on to occlude a blood vessel is known as a thromboembolism. Venous thromboembolism begins with ...
