The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of antioxidants on angiogenesis in uterine transplantation. We used 24 female rats equally divided into four groups: Group 1 had the uterus stored in HTK (Histidine-Tryptophan-Ketoglutarate) solution at 4 °C cold storage for 4 h. Group 2 had the uterine tissue stored in HTK solution combined with acetyl L-carnitine (10-8  M) for 4 h at +4 °C. The same procedures with Group 1 and 2 were repeated for 24 h for Groups 3 and 4, respectively. Histological investigation and immunohistochemical analysis were performed...

OBJECTIVE: Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injuries result in damage to endothelial and parenchymal cells. Oxytocin (OXY) stimulates uterine contraction during parturition and myoepithelial cells during suckling. OXY has been used as a protective antioxidant. Kisspeptin plays a key role in the central control of reproductive functions and onset of puberty. Recent studies show that these reproductive hormones have protective potential as antioxidant. The aim of this study is to investigate the potential protective effects of Kisspeptin and OXY as antioxidants on I/R injured ovary and uterus of female rats...

A broad definition of preconditioning is "the preparation for a subsequent action." Mounting evidence demonstrates that novel remote preconditioning paradigms, in which protective stimuli experienced locally can capacitate systemic tolerance and enhanced cell viability upon exposure to ensuing cellular insults, have been largely successful in the field of cardiovascular ischemia/reperfusion injury. To ensure successful protective preconditioning, some models (including the uterus) have been demonstrated to activate the unfolded protein response (UPR), which is a cellular stress response controlled at the level of the endoplasmic reticulum...

BACKGROUND: Renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is one of the most important causes of kidney injury, which is possibly gender-related. This study was designed to investigate the role of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) against IRI in ovariectomized estradiol-treated rats. METHODS: Thirty-five ovariectomized Wistar rats were used in six experimental groups. The first three groups did not subject to estradiol treatment and assigned as sham-operated, control, and GABA-treated groups...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of remifentanil as an antioxidant and analyze the histopathologic, biochemical changes in experimental ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) exposed rat uteri. METHODS: Wistar albino rats were assigned to three groups (n = 7). 2h period of ischemia was followed by 1h of reperfusion in the I/R and the I/R-remifentanil groups. After ischemia, no drug was administered in the sham and I/R groups. In the I/R-remifentanil group, remifentanil infusion (2 μg/kg/min) was started in the ischemia period, and continued until the end of reperfusion...

BACKGROUND: Renal ischemia-reperfusion (RIR) is the main cause of renal failure. The incidence of RIR injury seems to be gender-related due to female sex hormone; estrogen. This study was designed to investigate the protective role of estrogen against RIR injury in male and ovariectomized female rats. METHODS: Thirty-nine Wistar rats were used in this study as male and ovariectomized female rats in the sham-operated, RIR, and estradiol-treated plus RIR groups. The RIR was induced by clamping the renal vessels for 45 min and then 24 h of reperfusion...

Asherman's Syndrome is characterized by intrauterine adhesions or fibrosis resulting as a consequence of damage to the basal layer of endometrium and is associated with infertility due to loss of normal endometrium. We have previously shown that bone marrow derived stem cells (BMDSCs) engraft the endometrium in mice and humans and Ischemia/reperfusion injury of uterus promoted BMDSCs migration to the endometrium; however, the role of BMDSCs in Asherman's syndrome has not been characterized. Here a murine model of Asherman's syndrome was created by traumatizing the uterus...

The endometrium is a dynamic tissue that undergoes repeated rounds of regeneration in each reproductive (estrous or menstrual) cycle. We have previously shown that bone marrow (BM)-derived stem cells engraft the endometrium in rodents and humans; however, it is not known if these cells contribute physiologically to uterine cyclic regeneration or alternatively are primarily involved in uterine repair in response to injury. Here we performed male-to-female BM transplant and tested the ability of uterine injury to recruit BM-derived cells to endometrium in the presence and absence of sex steroids...

The role of complement in ischemia/reperfusion-induced fetal growth restriction and fetal loss is unknown. C5-deficient or wild type timed-pregnant mice were subjected to unilateral uterine ischemia/reperfusion on gestation day 13, either by (1) partial flow restriction by right ovarian artery clamping for 30 min, or (2) total flow restriction by clamping both ovarian and uterine arteries for 5 min. Ischemia/reperfusion-challenged pregnancy outcomes were compared to sham-operated controls 5 days later. Ischemia/reperfusion-treated wild type mice exhibited significantly increased bilateral fetal loss, which was greater in total flow restriction than in partial flow restriction, and decreased fetal weights, which were the same in total flow restriction and partial flow restriction for the surviving fetuses...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the coronary endothelial protective effects of 17β-estradiol (E2) and the role of estrogen receptor (ER) α in ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). METHODS AND RESULTS: E2 exerts protective effects in cardiac I/R. However, the implication in vivo of the endothelium and the cellular targets of the anti-ischemic effects of E2 are unknown. Mice were subjected to I/R (30 minutes of I and 1 hour of R) in vivo, after which acetylcholine-induced relaxation of isolated coronary segments was assessed ex vivo...

Pyometra in an inguinal hernia was diagnosed in a 10-year-old intact cross-bred bitch which had had dysorexia, depression and inguinal distension. The hernia contained caudal portions of the two uterine horns, uterine cervix and cranial part of the vagina. As the organs were enlarged and full of pus, manual attempt to push back the uterine horns and the vagina in the abdominal cavity through the inguinal canal was unsuccessful. Herniated uterine horns were ligated and cut in their median portion, so it became possible to remove the cervix and the caudal portion of the horns through the hernial orifice, and the ovaries and the cranial part of the horns through a peritoneal midline incision...

Menstruation is widely viewed as serving no purpose other than to reinitiate the endometrial cycle in the absence of pregnancy. Yet, it is striking that cyclic endometrial decidualization followed by menstrual shedding is confined to the few species, including human beings, where placenta formation entails deep trophoblast invasion of maternal tissues and its vasculature. Both menstruation and pregnancy are inflammatory conditions that cause a degree of physiological ischemia-reperfusion tissue injury, albeit much more so in pregnancy...

In the dual ex vivo perfusion of an isolated human placental cotyledon it takes on average 20-30 min to set up stable perfusion circuits for the maternal and fetal vascular compartments. In vivo placental tissue of all species maintains a highly active metabolism and it continues to puzzle investigators how this tissue can survive 30 min of ischemia with more or less complete anoxia following expulsion of the organ from the uterus and do so without severe damage. There seem to be parallels between "depressed metabolism" seen in the fetus and the immature neonate in the peripartum period and survival strategies described in mammals with increased tolerance of severe hypoxia like hibernators in the state of torpor or deep sea diving turtles...
