AIM OF THE STUDY: Alprostadil (A) induces smooth-muscle relaxation by stimulating the increasing of intracellular cAMP. Intra-urethral administration is an alternative to its intra-cavernose injection in inducing erection. In order to understand the functional and anatomical basis for drug transfer, the possible communications of the corpus spongiosum with the corpora cavernosa were studied. MATERIAL OF STUDY: A "Spongiogram" (SP) was performed in 44patients (pt...

BACKGROUND: Intracoronary infusion of autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BMMNC), after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), has been shown to improve myocardial function. However, therapeutic efficacy is limited, possibly because cell retention rates are low, suggesting that optimization of cell retention might increase therapeutic efficacy. Since retention of injected BMMNC is observed only within infarcted, but not remote, myocardium, we hypothesized that adhesion molecules on activated endothelium following reperfusion are essential...

Phalloplasty is indicated in various conditions of penile loss or absence. There are numerous techniques for phalloplasty including the pedicle and free flaps with the ultimate goal of micturition in standing position, attaining adequate size, aesthesis and sensations for sexual intercourse. Radial forearm phalloplasty is the gold standard flap to achieve above results but gives a very bad scar on the forearm. We present a technique of using prefabricated thigh flap to reduce the morbidity of donor area. The descending branch of lateral circumflex femoral pedicle was placed in a subcutaneous plane over tissue expander...

OBJECTIVE: Theobjective of this study was to determine the indications, utility, advantages and surgical approach for the anteromedial thigh (AMT) flap. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the records of the patients in whom the AMT flap was used for head and neck reconstruction. We use an anterior approach to harvest the anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap with a non-committal straight line incision. This preserves both ALT and AMT flap territories intact, and further decision is based on the intraoperative anatomy of perforator and pedicle...

Anomalous origin of the circumflex coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery is rare, and symptoms are related to the collateralization and amount of myocardium that it supplies. A 50-year-old woman with severe bicuspid aortic valve stenosis had the diagnosis of anomalous origin of the circumflex coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery before valve replacement. Ligation and division of the circumflex coronary artery was performed. Myocardial ischemia was not observed. The patient was discharged after an uneventful recovery...

It is becoming increasingly important for clinicians to identify a safer intramuscular (IM) injection site in the deltoid muscle because of possible complications following the vaccine administration of IM injections. We herein examined four original IM sites located on the perpendicular line through the mid-acromion in order to establish a safer IM injection site. Thirty healthy volunteers participated in this study and the distances from our four IM sites to some anatomical landmarks on their left arms were measured...

Coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) is a rare anomaly. The right coronary artery is the most commonly affected, followed by the left circumflex (LCX), or the left anterior descending artery (LAD). Three-vessel disease or left main (LM) involvement is extremely rare. A giant coronary artery aneurysm (GCAA) has an extremely low incidence and refers to an aneurysm that is 20 mm or greater in size. Most CAAs occur as a consequence of atherosclerosis. Most patients with CAA are males, have three-vessel disease, and a history of myocardial infarction (MI)...

BACKGROUND: Moderate alcohol consumption is cardioprotective but the mechanism of action remains unclear. Nuclear factor κ-B regulates the expression of genes involved in inflammation, stress, and apoptosis. We used a swine model of diet-induced metabolic syndrome to investigate the effects of red wine and vodka on nuclear factor κ-B signaling and cytokine activity in chronically ischemic myocardium. METHODS: Yorkshire swine were given a high-fat diet for 4 weeks; an ameroid constrictor was then placed on the left circumflex artery...

OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (MICS CABG) via a small left thoracotomy is a novel technique for coronary revascularization that is increasingly used around the world. However, multivessel MICS CABG is difficult, and concerns about repeat revascularization (RR) have been raised. This longitudinal study describes the rates of RR among patients who have undergone MICS CABG and identifies targets for improvement. METHODS: A prospective observational study was performed on the 306 MICS CABG patients operated on by a single surgeon from 2005 to 2015...

Worldwide primary angioplasty is a recommended strategy of reperfusion in patient with acute myocardial infarction as because it ensures reperfusion of the infarct-related vessels more than 90% whereas, with thrombolytics it is only 60-70%. This retrospective observational study includes all patients treated with primary angioplasty at United Hospital from Between March 2007 to January 2011. Total 114 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction were treated with primary angioplasty included. Those presented beyond 12 hours of onset of chest pain, in cardiogenic shock, resuscitate and intubated before the procedure were excluded from the study...
