The cochlear part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The cochlear nerve fibers originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project peripherally to cochlear hair cells and centrally to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS) of the BRAIN STEM. They mediate the sense of hearing.
The profession of writing. Also the identity of the writer as the creator of a literary production.
Pathological processes of the VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE, including the branches of COCHLEAR NERVE and VESTIBULAR NERVE. Common examples are VESTIBULAR NEURITIS, cochlear neuritis, and ACOUSTIC NEUROMA. Clinical signs are varying degree of HEARING LOSS; VERTIGO; and TINNITUS.
Collections of facts, assumptions, beliefs, and heuristics that are used in combination with databases to achieve desired results, such as a diagnosis, an interpretation, or a solution to a problem (From McGraw Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed).
The vestibular part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The vestibular nerve fibers arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project peripherally to vestibular hair cells and centrally to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM. These fibers mediate the sense of balance and head position.
The essential part of the hearing organ consists of two labyrinthine compartments: the bony labyrinthine and the membranous labyrinth. The bony labyrinth is a complex of three interconnecting cavities or spaces (COCHLEA; VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH; and SEMICIRCULAR CANALS) in the TEMPORAL BONE. Within the bony labyrinth lies the membranous labyrinth which is a complex of sacs and tubules (COCHLEAR DUCT; SACCULE AND UTRICLE; and SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS) forming a continuous space enclosed by EPITHELIUM and connective tissue. These spaces are filled with LABYRINTHINE FLUIDS of various compositions.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
A general term for the complete or partial loss of the ability to hear from one or both ears.

Hearing loss resulting from damage to the COCHLEA and the sensorineural elements which lie internally beyond the oval and round windows. These elements include the AUDITORY NERVE and its connections in the BRAINSTEM.
Sensorineural hearing loss which develops suddenly over a period of hours or a few days. It varies in severity from mild to total deafness. Sudden deafness can be due to head trauma, vascular diseases, infections, or can appear without obvious cause or warning.
A temporary or persistent opening in the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE). Clinical signs depend on the size, location, and associated pathological condition.
The ability or act of sensing and transducing ACOUSTIC STIMULATION to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It is also called audition.
Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.
The lower chamber of the COCHLEA, extending from the round window to the helicotrema (the opening at the apex that connects the PERILYMPH-filled spaces of scala tympani and SCALA VESTIBULI).
The upper chamber of the COCHLEA that is filled with PERILYMPH. It is connected to SCALA TYMPANI via helicotrema at the apex of the cochlea.
Electric conductors through which electric currents enter or leave a medium, whether it be an electrolytic solution, solid, molten mass, gas, or vacuum.
Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (COCHLEAR IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers.
The fluid separating the membranous labyrinth from the osseous labyrinth of the ear. It is entirely separate from the ENDOLYMPH which is contained in the membranous labyrinth. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed, p1396, 642)
The part of the inner ear (LABYRINTH) that is concerned with hearing. It forms the anterior part of the labyrinth, as a snail-like structure that is situated almost horizontally anterior to the VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH.
Fenestra of the cochlea, an opening in the basal wall between the MIDDLE EAR and the INNER EAR, leading to the cochlea. It is closed by a secondary tympanic membrane.

A subnormal level of BLOOD PLATELETS.
Disorders caused by abnormalities in platelet count or function.
A characteristic symptom complex.
A nonmuscle isoform of myosin type II found predominantly in platelets, lymphocytes, neutrophils and brush border enterocytes.
The hearing and equilibrium system of the body. It consists of three parts: the EXTERNAL EAR, the MIDDLE EAR, and the INNER EAR. Sound waves are transmitted through this organ where vibration is transduced to nerve signals that pass through the ACOUSTIC NERVE to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The inner ear also contains the vestibular organ that maintains equilibrium by transducing signals to the VESTIBULAR NERVE.

An autosomal recessive familial disorder that usually presents in childhood with POLYNEUROPATHY; SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS; ICHTHYOSIS; ATAXIA; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; and CARDIOMYOPATHIES. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1991, Ch37, p58-9; Rev Med Interne 1996;17(5):391-8) This condition can be caused by mutation in the genes encoding peroxisomal phytanoyl-CoA hydroxylase or proteins associated peroxisomal membrane, leading to impaired catabolism of PHYTANIC ACID in PEROXISOMES.
A 20-carbon branched chain fatty acid. In phytanic acid storage disease (REFSUM DISEASE) this lipid may comprise as much as 30% of the total fatty acids of the plasma. This is due to a phytanic acid alpha-hydroxylase deficiency.
A heterogeneous group of inherited metabolic disorders marked by absent or dysfunctional PEROXISOMES. Peroxisomal enzymatic abnormalities may be single or multiple. Biosynthetic peroxisomal pathways are compromised, including the ability to synthesize ether lipids and to oxidize long-chain fatty acid precursors. Diseases in this category include ZELLWEGER SYNDROME; INFANTILE REFSUM DISEASE; rhizomelic chondrodysplasia (CHONDRODYSPLASIA PUNCTATA, RHIZOMELIC); hyperpipecolic acidemia; neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy; and ADRENOLEUKODYSTROPHY (X-linked). Neurologic dysfunction is a prominent feature of most peroxisomal disorders.
An early onset form of phytanic acid storage disease with clinical and biochemical signs different from those of REFSUM DISEASE. Features include MENTAL RETARDATION; SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS; OSTEOPOROSIS; and severe liver damage. It can be caused by mutation in a number of genes encoding proteins involving in the biogenesis or assembly of PEROXISOMES.
An autosomal recessive disorder due to defects in PEROXISOME biogenesis which involves more than 13 genes encoding peroxin proteins of the peroxisomal membrane and matrix. Zellweger syndrome is typically seen in the neonatal period with features such as dysmorphic skull; MUSCLE HYPOTONIA; SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS; visual compromise; SEIZURES; progressive degeneration of the KIDNEYS and the LIVER. Zellweger-like syndrome refers to phenotypes resembling the neonatal Zellweger syndrome but seen in children or adults with apparently intact peroxisome biogenesis.
Electron-dense cytoplasmic particles bounded by a single membrane, such as PEROXISOMES; GLYOXYSOMES; and glycosomes.

3D MRI of the membranous labyrinth. An age related comparison of MR findings in patients with labyrinthine fibrosis and in persons without inner ear symptoms. (1/37)

PURPOSE: We compared MRI of the membranous labyrinth in patients with chronic non-neoplastic inner ear disease and MR signs of labyrinthine fibrosis and controls depending on their age, in order to establish whether there were any MR differences regarding patient age groups, control age groups and between the patients and controls themselves. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical ENT examinations as well as a T2* weighted 3D CISS (Constructive Interference in Steady State) sequence with a slice thickness of 0.7 mm were performed. Our collective was subdivided as follows: 0-19 years (10 controls, 3 patients with chronic non-neoplastic inner ear disease), 20-49 years (55 controls, 8 patients), 50 years and older (40 controls, 22 patients). Detectability of labyrinthine structures (e.g. cochlea, vestibule, semicircular canals) and filling defects were evaluated. RESULTS: In the 3 age-groups of the control collective no significant differences were observed in the membranous labyrinth. However differences concerning labyrinthine detectability emerged between controls and patients in both the 20-49 years and 50 years and older age groups. In the patient collective the 3 age groups showed no significant discrepancy in the mean number of lesions. CONCLUSION: Filling defects of the membranous labyrinth on 3D CISS MR images are pathological even in older persons. We would therefore recommend high resolution T2* weighted MRI in the case of suspected labyrinthine fibrosis.  (+info)

Ototoxicity: an argument for evaluation of the cochlea in safety testing in animals. (2/37)

The cochlea is one of the more common targets for toxic effects, yet current toxicologic screening in animals does not routinely evaluate the cochlea as a potential target organ. Although histopathologic sections are routinely taken from the eye and the optic nerve and tract and most studies include at least 1 section through the nasal cavity and olfactory mucosa, the cochlea is not histopathologically examined in routine toxicity studies. Unfortunately, routine clinical examinations frequently miss ototoxicity because rodents and other species can lose most of their high-frequency hearing and still respond to most ambient noises. Ototoxicity as a deficiency in toxicologic screening can be remedied by using well-established histopathologic and behavioral methods or electrophysiologic methods, such as brain stem auditory evoked responses (BAERs). Once the equipment is in place, BAERs can be obtained quickly and easily for ototoxicity screening (approximately 15 minutes for paired testing of 2 rats and 30 minutes each for dogs). BAERs also can be used in virtually all mammalian species. Three or 4 probe frequencies (eg, 4, 8, 16, and 32 kHz), representing different areas of the cochlea, can be tested in a few minutes with subcutaneous electrodes under short-acting chemorestraint. Given the availability of several approaches to screening for ototoxicity and the importance of the auditory function in human health, safety tests of chemicals and drugs should include an effective screening test for ototoxicity.  (+info)

Spiral ligament pathology: a major aspect of age-related cochlear degeneration in C57BL/6 mice. (3/37)

Data from systematic, light microscopic examination of cochlear histopathology in an age-graded series of C57BL/6 mice (1.5-15 months) were compared with threshold elevations (measured by auditory brain stem response) to elucidate the functionally important structural changes underlying age-related hearing loss in this inbred strain. In addition to quantifying the degree and extent of hair cell and neuronal loss, all structures of the cochlear duct were qualitatively evaluated and any degenerative changes were quantified. Hair cell and neuronal loss patterns suggested two degenerative processes. In the basal half of the cochlea, inner and outer hair cell loss proceeded from base to apex with increasing age, and loss of cochlear neurons was consistent with degeneration occurring secondary to inner hair cell loss. In the apical half of the cochlea with advancing age, there was selective loss of outer hair cells which increased from the middle to the extreme apex. A similar gradient of ganglion cell loss was noted, characterized by widespread somatic aggregation and demyelination. In addition to these changes in hair cells and their innervation, there was widespread degeneration of fibrocytes in the spiral ligament, especially among the type IV cell class. The cell loss in the ligament preceded the loss of hair cells and/or neurons in both space and time suggesting that fibrocyte pathology may be a primary cause of the hearing loss and ultimate sensory cell degeneration in this mouse strain.  (+info)

Delayed inner ear maturation and neuronal loss in postnatal Igf-1-deficient mice. (4/37)

Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) has been shown to play a key role during embryonic and postnatal development of the CNS, but its effect on a sensory organ has not been studied in vivo. Therefore, we examined cochlear growth, differentiation, and maturation in Igf-1 gene knock-out mice at postnatal days 5 (P5), P8, and P20 by using stereological methods and immunohistochemistry. Mutant mice showed reduction in size of the cochlea and cochlear ganglion. An immature tectorial membrane and a significant decrease in the number and size of auditory neurons were also evident at P20. IGF-1-deficient cochlear neurons showed increased caspase-3-mediated apoptosis, along with aberrant expression of the early neural markers nestin and Islet 1/2. Cochlear ganglion and fibers innervating the sensory cells of the organ of Corti presented decreased levels of neurofilament and myelin P(0) in P20 mouse mutants. In addition, an abnormal synaptophysin expression in the somata of cochlear ganglion neurons and sensory hair cells suggested the persistence of an immature pattern of synapses distribution in the organ of Corti of these animals. These results demonstrate that lack of IGF-1 in mice severely affects postnatal survival, differentiation, and maturation of the cochlear ganglion cells and causes abnormal innervation of the sensory cells in the organ of Corti.  (+info)

Dynamics of noise-induced cellular injury and repair in the mouse cochlea. (5/37)

To assess the dynamics of noise-induced tissue injury and repair, groups of CBA/CaJ mice were exposed to an octave-band noise for 2 hours at levels of 94, 100, 106, 112, or 116 dB SPL and evaluated at survival times of 0, 12, 24 hours or 1, 2, or 8 weeks. Functional change, assessed via auditory brainstem response (ABR), ranged from a reversible threshold shift (at 94 dB) to a profound permanent loss (at 116 dB). Light microscopic histopathology was assessed in serial thick plastic sections and involved quantitative evaluation of most major cell types within the cochlear duct, including hair cells (and their stereocilia), supporting cells, ganglion cells, spiral ligament fibrocytes, spiral limbus fibrocytes, and the stria vascularis. Morphometry allowed patterns of damage to be systematically assessed as functions of (1) cochlear location, (2) exposure level, and (3) postexposure survival. Insights into mechanisms of acute and chronic noise-induced cellular damage are discussed.  (+info)

Acrylonitrile produces transient cochlear function loss and potentiates permanent noise-induced hearing loss. (6/37)

There is growing evidence that agents that produce oxidative stress in the cochlea have significant ototoxic potential by themselves and can potentiate noise-induced hearing loss as well. Acrylonitrile (ACN) metabolism entails conjugation with glutathione, resulting in rapid and pronounced depletion of this important antioxidant in many organs including brain, liver, and kidney. ACN metabolism also results in cyanide (CN) formation through a secondary oxidative pathway. The results of two physiological experiments are reported here. First, the acute effects of ACN (50 mg/kg sc) on auditory sensitivity are assessed using a within subject study. In the second study, persistent effects of ACN alone (50 mg/kg, sc and 2 x 50 mg/kg, sc) and ACN in combination with noise exposure (8 h, 108 dB octave-band noise) are evaluated using threshold sensitivity as the dependent measure. Auditory threshold shift and absolute thresholds were determined using the compound action potential (CAP) amplitude. Acute ACN administration produces a loss in auditory threshold sensitivity that reached a maximum 10-20 min following sc injection. Auditory thresholds returned to control levels 75-100 min following exposure. In the study of permanent auditory threshold shifts, ACN plus noise increased auditory threshold impairment relative to rats receiving noise only when thresholds were assessed 3 weeks following exposure. ACN by itself did not produce permanent threshold impairment 3 weeks following administration. Assays were undertaken in separate groups of rats to track the elevation in blood CN and the depletion of total glutathione in cochlea, brain, and liver following ACN treatment. Systemic blood CN levels were not significantly elevated until 60-120 min following injection, and cochlear glutathione levels showed significant depletion as little as 15 min after injection and remained depressed for about 4 h. The results confirm the prediction that ACN is acutely ototoxic and can enhance noise-induced hearing loss.  (+info)

Myo15 function is distinct from Myo6, Myo7a and pirouette genes in development of cochlear stereocilia. (7/37)

The unconventional myosin genes Myo15, Myo6 and Myo7a are essential for hearing in both humans and mice. Despite the expression of each gene in multiple organs, mutations result in identifiable phenotypes only in auditory or ocular sensory organs. The pirouette (pi) mouse also exhibits deafness and an inner ear pathology resembling that of Myo15 mutant mice and thus may be functionally related to Myo15. In order to investigate possible interactions between Myo15 and Myo6, Myo7a, and the gene affected in pirouette, we crossed Myo15(sh2/sh2) mice to the three other mutant mouse strains. Hearing in doubly heterozygous mice was similar to age-matched singly heterozygous animals, indicating that partial deficiency for both Myo15 and one of these other deafness genes does not reduce hearing. Viable double mutants were obtained from each cross, indicating that potential overlapping functions between these genes in other organs are not essential for viability. All critical cell types of the cochlear sensory epithelium were present in double mutant mice and cochlear stereocilia exhibited a superimposition of single mutant phenotypes. These data suggest that the function of Myo15 is distinct from that of Myo6, Myo7a or pi in development and/or maintenance of stereocilia.  (+info)

Abnormal auditory brainstem responses and cochlear pathology in rats induced by an exaggerated styrene exposure regimen. (8/37)

Groups of 12 male 42-day-old rats were exposed to 0 or 800 ppm styrene vapors for 14 hr/day, 5 days/week for 3 weeks. Tone-pip auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) at 4, 8, 16, and 30 kHz were obtained after the last exposure. ABRs were minimally affected at 4 kHz and moderately to severely affected at 8, 16, and 30 kHz as indicated by waveforms which had a decreased amplitude and increased latency as compared to the controls. Missing outer hair cell(s) were evident in the basal and lower middle turns of the organ of Corti. Outer hair cell loss was least in the first row and greatest in the second and third rows. Occasional inner hair cells were also missing in regions of severe outer hair cell loss. The distribution of hair cell loss within the cochlea was consistent with the pattern of ABR alterations. These data document mid-frequency auditory dysfunction in styrene-exposed young adult rats with significant damage to the organ of Corti following an exaggerated styrene exposure regimen.  (+info)

Salicylate (aspirin) is a widely used drug in clinics. Acute application of salicylate may cause reversible hearing loss, reduction of distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE), and loss of outer hair cell (OHC) electromotility. A long-term application may cause tinnitus. Interestingly, it has been reported that a long-term salicylate application up-regulated expression of prestin, the OHC m
Our results indicate that cochlear neurons in the basal turn degenerate in the absence of NT-3 because BDNF is not expressed in the basal turn epithelium at a critical time. As predicted by this interpretation, transgenic expression of BDNF under control of the NT-3 promoter qualitatively rescues this innervation deficit at E13.5 (Fig. 2 D). A similar rescue has been found in newborn transgenic mice (Coppola et al., 2001). However, we cannot exclude the possibility that the additional availability of excess BDNF in itself is related to the observed rescue. Nevertheless, because there is some endogenous expression ofBDNF in developing hair cells of the middle and apical turns, sensory neurons innervating these regions are partially rescued by this neurotrophin in NT-3 null mutants. BDNFexpression, though, must not be high enough to compensate completely for the loss of NT-3. The specific loss of cochlear neurons in the apical turn of BDNF homozygous mutants may reflect insufficient expression of ...

The MiTiHeart® LVAD has been extensively evaluated in both in vitro and in vivo animal studies. The LVAD system has been successfully subjected to more than 5,000 hours of in vitro testing and 2,000 hours of animal implant testing. The latest MiTiHeart® LVAD system is compact, efficient and capable of long-term stable operation in vitro and in vivo. A total input power of 6 W was required at a design point of 4,100 rpm while pumping 5 L/min against 100 mmHg. This is among the lowest power reported by magnetically levitated LVADs found in literature. In Vitro testing showed low hemolysis under non-pulsatile and pulsatile conditions. NIH values are among the lowest reported in literature. Long-term durability testing has been demonstrated for 63 days of continuous operation while submerged in saline. Two successful chronic implant studies were performed. In both studies, the MiTiHeart® LVAD operated as expected with no device related complications. Recent test results will allow the MiTiHeart® ...

en] Peripherin is an intermediate filament protein that is expressed in peripheral and enteric neurons. In the cochlear nervous system, peripherin expression has been extensively used as a differentiation marker by preferentially labeling the type II neuronal population at adulthood, but yet without knowing its function. Since the expression of peripherin has been associated in time with the process of axonal extension and during regeneration of nerve fibers in other systems, it was of interest to determine whether peripherin expression in cochlear neurons was a static phenotypic trait or rather prone to modifications following nerve injury. In the present study, we first compared the expression pattern of peripherin and beta III-tubulin from late embryonic stages to the adult in rat cochlea. The staining for both proteins was seen before birth within all cochlear neurons. By birth, and for 2 or 3 days, peripherin expression was gradually restricted to the type II neuronal population and their ...
Tinnitus is the phantom perception of noise in the ears that occurs in the absence of an external sound source. It is estimated that about 1 in 5 people experience tinnitus. Tinnitus by itself is not a disease but may be a symptom of another condition. In addition to a ringing sound, the noise may be perceived as buzzing, roaring, crickets, the ocean, or even music. A special variant of tinnitus, pulsatile tinnitus, is hearing ones heartbeat in one or both ears. Both pulsatile and non-pulsatile tinnitus may be constant or intermittent. The source of the tinnitus can be the ear itself; however, tinnitus is far more commonly of central origin (from the brain). The inciting event for tinnitus may be a change in inner ear function; however, the tinnitus generator is likely to be somewhere in the brains auditory circuitry (central auditory pathways). Some of the most common causes include age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noises, earwax impaction, certain medications, or a stiffening of ...
Natural News) Everyone experiences tinnitus every once in a while, but it becomes a cause for worry when it persists longer than it usually does. According to a study published in the Caspian Journal of Internal Medicine, sufferers of chronic non-pulsatile tinnitus can find relief in acupuncture, concluding that the ancient healing art can reduce the severity of this issue.. If you have ever experienced hearing a ringing sound within your ears, you have most likely experienced tinnitus. Its not a condition per se - rather, it is a symptom of what is possibly an underlying condition. These could include hearing loss, an ear injury, or even a disorder affecting your circulatory system. However, tinnitus may also be nothing serious, occurring as simply the after-effect of certain stimuli, such as very loud noises.. There are two types of tinnitus:. Pulsatile tinnitus is so-called because it sounds like either your pulse or the movement of your muscles. This is usually caused by problems in the ...
Genetic mutation found to be responsible for severe gonio Scientists have discovered a mutation in the OLFML3 gene which causes sudden blindness in border collies.. The findings have resulted in several companies developing genetic tests for the condition, called goniodysgenesis - or gonio - to avoid affected dogs being used to produce puppies.. In severe gonio, the affected dogs eyes do not develop properly, which can cause glaucoma, leading to sudden loss of sight. Sudden blindness in border collies was first seen in Australia in the late 90s, then in the UK in relatives of the original dogs. Breeders suspected there may be a genetic cause.. Researchers from the Roslin Institute collected DNA from dog saliva samples and compared those with healthy eyes, to those with symptoms of severe gonio. They found a genetic mutation in OLFML3, which is involved in the early stages of eyeball development.. All dogs who suffered blindness had two copies of the mutation gene. The research paper has been ...
Pit bulls have been bred for so long and so intensively for the pit, that their hard-wired violent tendencies dont always discriminate between dogs and people or dogs and cars or strangers and family members. Hard wired behaviors are true of many breeds of dogs, not just pit bulls and is probably best illustrated with the border collie. The border collie breed is not quite as old as the APBT, yet it is so hard wired to herd sheep, that if there are no sheep to herd, it will herd whatever is available. I have read accounts of border collies (and aussies, cattledogs, shelties) herding a variety of non-sheep animals and inanimate objects such as ants, cats, dogs, chickens, horses, rabbits, frogs, shadows, light, shoes, vacuum cleaners, tumble weed, leaves, snow, cars, carpet fuzz and HUMANS. No one is surprised when a border collie herds ants. And more importantly, no one tries to claim that it is the owners fault for not properly training or socializing their border collie!

HD is a condition that can affect many breeds of dog. It is caused by an ill fitting joint in the elbow or hip of the dog. Many studies have been carried out to determine the cause of the condition and how it relates genetically to breeding lines. We can however have dogs x-rayed to assess the condition of the hips and elbows. This is done typically over the age of 12 months of age and x-rays are sent to a professional for scoring. Scores can be affected by interfering factors such as the dogs age, or any injuries prior to scoring. These scores help breeders determine which dogs to breed on with to minimise the risk of puppies developing the condition. The x-ray and scoring process is not cheap but if parents and grand parents of puppies are known to have low scores the probability is that offspring will also have low scores. Scores are generally displayed as x:x and the total is simply these two numbers combined, i.e. 3:4 is a Total of 7. The breed average for Border Collies is approximately ...

Nine patients qualified for surgery for a bleeding gastric ulcer - all had a visible vessel. Three of these vessels were thrombosed including 2 in patients who had been in shock. The smallest patent vessel was 0,35 mm in diameter, and 6 of the bleeding vessels were subserosal. The features thought to predispose to further bleeding were vessel size, a lateral hole in the main trunk of the vessel and, possibly, previous recanalization or ingestion of a drug which affected haemostasis. Five of 6 patent arteries had a cap of thrombus over the breach forming a false aneurysm. It is suggested that clinically these should pulsate, enlarge, leak - with persistent fresh thrombus in the ulcer crater on repeat endoscopy - and finally rupture. Where the underlying vessel is thrombosed the stigmata of a non-pulsatile visible vessel or thrombus in the ulcer should disappear on repeat endoscopy. The sizes of the arteries in the normal antrum are tabulated.. ...

The rabies vaccine is arguably the most dangerous shot our dogs get. Because its required by law, its a difficult shot to avoid. Because the vaccine is made from a killed virus, rather than modified live virus as are the other important core vaccines, manufacturers add dangerous adjuvants to boost effectiveness. These adjuvants too often cause adverse reactions, some of which occur quickly, but many of which occur days, weeks or even months after vaccination. A killed vaccine (rather than one from a modified live virus), the rabies vaccine contains adjuvants (chemical boosters) to enhance the immunological response. In 1999, the World Health Organization classified veterinary vaccine adjuvants as Class III/IV carcinogens with Class IV being the highest risk. ...

Why is it called a Collie? It doesnt look like a Collie!. Collie is a Scottish word for dogs that herd sheep, hence the Border Collie, the Rough (Lassie-type) or Smooth Collie and the Bearded Collie. This may have come from the Coaley or black-faced sheep in Scotland.. Are they good family dogs?. Beardies are people-oriented dogs. They NEED to be with their family. If left alone for long periods, they are liable to become frustrated and provide their own entertainment - not always one that makes the owner happy.. Beardies are vigorous, bouncy dogs, and like to jump up to look you in the eyes or kiss your nose. This fits in well with many families. Others, particularly those with toddlers, non-doggy visitors, elderly or physically challenged people, prefer to train their Beardie to sit and shake instead of jumping on people to greet them. Some Beardies have a high herding instinct and nip at ankles or eye-level bottoms, trying to bunch their flock. Like kids, some are more rowdy than others. ...

AFTER Badger the border collie fractured his leg and failed to recover enough, there were fears he wouldnt see his second birthday.
Merle has never been common among working border collies: great working merles are rare as hens teeth. Im no geneticist, but its my understanding that a merle pup can only be produced if one of the parents is merle --- the last thing a breeder of good working stockdogs is going to care about. It doesnt help that breeding for merle carries a certain amount of risk, as in, you can kill some of the puppies now, or you can kill them later. Quoting from the GenMARK site: ...
