Pharmacology of the Human Saphenous Vein
(BENTHAM SCIENCE PUBL LTD, 2011)
Nowadays, the great saphenous vein is the vascular conduit that is most frequently employed in coronary and peripheral revascularization surgery. It is known that saphenous vein bypass grafts have shorter patency than ...
Inside-out vs. standard vein graft to repair a sensory nerve in rats
Nerve regeneration in a sensory nerve was obtained by the application of different techniques: inside-out vein graft (IOVG group) and standard vein graft (SVG group). These techniques provide a good microenvironment for ...
Human saphenous vein organ culture under controlled hemodynamic conditions
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2008)
INTRODUCTION: Saphenous vein grafting is still widely used to revascularize ischemic myocardium. The effectiveness of this procedure is limited by neointima formation and accelerated atherosclerosis, which frequently leads ...
Saphenous vein graft bypass in the treatment of giant cavernous sinus aneurysms - Report of two cases
(Assoc Arquivos De Neuro- PsiquiatriaSao Paulo SpBrasil, 2000)
Induction of CRP3/MLP expression during vein arterialization is dependent on stretch rather than shear stress
(OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2009)
Aims Cysteine- and glycine-rich protein 3/muscle LIM-domain protein (CRP3/MLP) mediates protein-protein interaction with actin filaments in the heart and is involved in muscle differentiation and vascular remodelling. Here, ...
Expression of apoptosis in human saphenous vein grafts in restoration of blood flow through coronary bypass surgery
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cirurgia Cardiovascular, 2009)
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible role of apoptosis on brief distensions of human saphenous veins at different pressures. METHODS: Fresh isolated grafts of human saphenous vein were assigned as control or distended ...
Oxidative stress in hypertensive patients induces an increased contractility in vein grafts independent of endothelial function
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2011-08)
Objective. To evaluate the impact of oxidative stress on vascular reactivity to vasoconstrictors and on nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability in saphenous vein (SV) graft with endothelial dysfunction from hypertensive patients ...
