Neuromuscular synapse degeneration without muscle function loss in the diaphragm of a murine model for Huntington's Disease
Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease characterized by chorea, incoordination and psychiatric and behavioral symptoms. The leading cause of death in HD patients is aspiration pneumonia, ...

Air trapping: The major factor limiting diaphragm mobility in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008)
Background and objective: Patients with COPD can have impaired diaphragm mechanics. A new method of assessing the mobility of the diaphragm, using ultrasound, has recently been validated. This study evaluated the relationship ...
Crossing the barrier: when the diaphragm is not a limit
(American Roentgen Ray Society, 2013)
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to depict the anatomic pathways along which transphrenic spread of diseases and entities can disseminate. CONCLUSION: The abdomen and thorax form a continuum on which the diaphragm ...
Down-regulation of MyoD gene expression in rat diaphragm muscle with heart failure
Diaphragm myopathy has been described in patients with heart failure (HF), with alterations in myosin heavy chains (MHC) expression. The pathways that regulate MHC expression during HF have not been described, and myogenic ...
Equivalent Circuit of Piezoelectric Diaphragms for Impedance-Based Structural Health Monitoring Applications
Piezoelectric diaphragms are low-cost acoustic components commonly used in a wide variety of electronic devices, where the typical function is to generate an audible alarm. However, scientific study concerning the use of ...
Thermal analysis of the girth weld of an elastomeric diaphragm tank
(Elsevier Science Sa, 2013-09-14)
The finite-element thermal analysis of the welding process of a titanium-alloy tank with an elastomeric diaphragm is described. The analysis takes into account the latent heat due to phase changes, the dependence of the ...
