INTRODUCTION: Some guidelines recommend an early voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) after endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), but there's no consensus if it's necessary a long-term follow-up in these patients. The aim of our study is analyze if it's necessary a delayed VCUG after initial successful treatment with Dx/HA. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We have reviewed all medical charts of patients that underwent Dx/HA treatment from 2006 to 2010. We have selected patients with initial successful treatment and more than 3 years of radiological and clinical follow-up...

There are multiple dynamic changes associated with the metabolism of the extracellular matrix (ECM) which occur in the course of liver fibrosis. Therefore, the evaluation of parameters reflecting the deposition of ECM, the activity of myofibroblasts and the synthesis and degradation of collagen may aid in the diagnosis of liver fibrosis. Hyaluronic acid is considered to be a marker of ECM deposition. It is a glycosaminoglycan synthesized by hepatic stellate cells and degraded by hepatic sinusoidal endothelial cells...

PURPOSE: Evaluate the time of post-abrasion corneal re-epithelialization using commercially available eye drops, one of which containing 0.4% sodium hialuronate, and the other containing 1% carboxymethylcellulose, and compare them to the re-epithelialization without the drops. METHODS: 24 rabbits were used, which had the mechanical abrasion of the central 8 mm of their corneas done. These animals were divided in 3 groups. The first one received the drops containing 0...

OBJECTIVE: In the year 2006 the Hospital Complex of Jaén began a new model of attention for consultation of knee osteoarthritis (CMAR), to offer quality treatment to the patient based on clinical practice guidelines. The objective of this study was to analyse the efficiency of the unit, in terms of delaying the time until a knee prostheses is needed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: An analysis of a retrospective cohort of patients seen at the CMAR was made, with a minimum available data set, and a Kaplan Meier analysis carried out in order to evaluate the time until the referral of the patient to surgery, as well as a Cox regression analysis in order to study the factors related with the time until the referral...

UNLABELLED: Hyaluronic acid is an important component of the extracellular matrix and has a crucial role in wound healing by stimulation of neutrophil migration, fibroblast proliferation and neoangiogenesis. OBJECTIVE: To study the efficacy of topical application of Bionect (Hialuronic Acid Sodium Sal 0.2%t) in wound treatment after cesarean section. RESULTS: The incidence of edema, infiltration, exudation and superficial blood collections was significantly lower in cases of Bionect application...

Lyme disease is a multisystem disease that can affect skin, nervous system, heart and joints. Lyme arthritis can develope in about 60% of "not treated" Lyme disease patients, 10% of patients may develope chronic arthritis. Lyme arhritis symptoms (especially chronic arthritis) is similar to rheumatoid arthritis. The purpose of this study was to establish the usefulness of examinations of serum levels of matrix metalloproteinases MMP-3, MMP-9, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP-1), hialuronic acid (HA) and antibodies against cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) in Lyme arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and patients with arthritic complaints...

Adhesiones occur after almost all gynecological procedures. Presence of adhesions may cause many complications and time consuming surgical procedures. It is also very important to include adhesions prevention procedures in order to preserve fertility in young women. That why adoption of effective adhesion prevention strategies should be introduced in gynecological surgery. This should include good surgical practice together with use of anti-adhesion adjuvants. Among them hialuronic acid has the best proven in literature effectiveness in adhesion formation reduction...

UNLABELLED: Hyaluronic acid is an important component of extracellular matrix and plays crucial role in wound healing by stimulation of neutrophil migration, fibroblasts proliferation and neoangiogenesis. OBJECTIVE: To study the efficacy of topical application of of Bionect (Hialuronic Acid Sodium Salt) in wound care in cases of episiotomy and cesarean section surgical wounds. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 27 patients, delivered by cesarean section and 20 patients with vaginal delivery with episiotomy were included in a prospective study...

Ultrasound dopplerography (UD) was used to examine 50 patients with idiopathic varicocele (IV) and 20 healthy subjects. Such parameters were assessed as age, severity of IV, its duration, scrotal vessels UD data, vein diameter of the pampiniform plexus on the left, reflux at the height of the Valsalva test, uronic acids (UA), glycosaminoglycanes (GAG) and their fractions (hialuronic acid--HA, chondroitin sulphates--CS, heparansulphates--HS). UA and GAG fraction composition was studied with ion exchange chromatography...

INTRODUCTION: The authors present the layer structure of the vocal fold (by Hirano) indicating at the same time its clinical usefulness in laser chordectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors describe the structure of the basement membrane sphere, i.e. the connection between the epithelium and the superficial layer of lamina propria, and the molecular structure of the extracellular matrix of mucosa. RESULTS: The biomechanical significance of fibre proteins and the extracellular matrix is emphasized with special attention paid to hialuronic acid and fibronectin...

PURPOSE: Trabeculectomy, a very well known procedure giving mainly good result, may sometimes produce many serious postoperative complications, connected with opening of anterior chamber. Another operating technique prepared by Fyodorov, Zimmerman and Kozlov, seems to be useful in all cases with open-angle glaucoma and does not produce complications like the once caused by trabeculectomy. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Non-perforating sclerectomy was performed on 7 children aged 8 to 15 with juvenile glaucoma /in 4 cases as the first procedure and in 3 cases as a secondary technique after trabeculectomy done more than 10 years before/...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate whether L-arginine reduces liver and biliary tract damage after transplantation from non heart-beating donor pigs. METHODS: Twenty-five animals received an allograft from non-heart-beating donors. After 40 min of cardiac arrest, normothermic recirculation was run for 30 min. The animals were randomly treated with L-arginine (400 mg x kg(-1) during normothermic recirculation) or saline (control group). Then, the animals were cooled and their livers were transplanted after 6 hr of cold ischemia...

The content of acid mucopolysaccharides of the interstitial matrix of various structural variants of chondrosarcoma was studied in the operation material of 28 chondrosarcomas. The chondrosarcoma tissue contained a large amount of sulphated mucopolysacharides and a low amount of hialuronic acid. The quantity and quality of mucopolysaccharides directly depended on the degree of maturity of the tumour tissue which was reflected morphologically in the scarcity of intercellular substance in the tissue.
