Fibrocartilage in tendons and ligaments--an adaptation to compressive load. (1/740)

Where tendons and ligaments are subject to compression, they are frequently fibrocartilaginous. This occurs at 2 principal sites: where tendons (and sometimes ligaments) wrap around bony or fibrous pulleys, and in the region where they attach to bone, i.e. at their entheses. Wrap-around tendons are most characteristic of the limbs and are commonly wider at their point of bony contact so that the pressure is reduced. The most fibrocartilaginous tendons are heavily loaded and permanently bent around their pulleys. There is often pronounced interweaving of collagen fibres that prevents the tendons from splaying apart under compression. The fibrocartilage can be located within fascicles, or in endo- or epitenon (where it may protect blood vessels from compression or allow fascicles to slide). Fibrocartilage cells are commonly packed with intermediate filaments which could be involved in transducing mechanical load. The ECM often contains aggrecan which allows the tendon to imbibe water and withstand compression. Type II collagen may also be present, particularly in tendons that are heavily loaded. Fibrocartilage is a dynamic tissue that disappears when the tendons are rerouted surgically and can be maintained in vitro when discs of tendon are compressed. Finite element analyses provide a good correlation between its distribution and levels of compressive stress, but at some locations fibrocartilage is a sign of pathology. Enthesis fibrocartilage is most typical of tendons or ligaments that attach to the epiphyses of long bones where it may also be accompanied by sesamoid and periosteal fibrocartilages. It is characteristic of sites where the angle of attachment changes throughout the range of joint movement and it reduces wear and tear by dissipating stress concentration at the bony interface. There is a good correlation between the distribution of fibrocartilage within an enthesis and the levels of compressive stress. The complex interlocking between calcified fibrocartilage and bone contributes to the mechanical strength of the enthesis and cartilage-like molecules (e.g. aggrecan and type II collagen) in the ECM contribute to its ability to withstand compression. Pathological changes are common and are known as enthesopathies.  (+info)

This study examined vasomotor responses and dynamic compliance in isolated abdominal aortae after chronic constriction of the ascending aorta. Guinea pigs underwent constriction of the ascending aorta or sham operation. Sections of descending aorta were removed for studies of contractile performance and compliance. Dynamic compliance was measured using a feedback-controlled pulsatile pressure system at frequencies of 0.5, 1.5 and 2.5 Hz and mean pressures from 40 to 100 mmHg. Chronic (149+/-6 days) aortic constriction resulted in significant increases in organ weight/body weight ratios for left ventricle (58%), right ventricle (100%) and lung (61%). The presence of heart failure was indicated by increased lung weights, left ventricular end-diastolic pressure and systemic vascular resistance, reduced cardiac output and increased levels of plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (166%), adrenaline (x20), noradrenaline (106%) and dopamine (x3). Aortic rings showed similar constrictor responses to phenylephrine and angiotensin II, but maximal vasodilator responses to acetylcholine and isoprenaline were significantly increased (144% and 48% respectively). Dilator responses to sodium nitroprusside, forskolin and cromokalim were unchanged. Compliance of all vessels decreased with increasing pulsatile frequency and to a lesser extent with increased mean pressure, but were similar in aortic-constricted and control groups. Chronic constriction of the ascending aorta resulted in heart failure and increased vasodilator responses to acetylcholine and isoprenaline in the distal aorta while dynamic compliance was unchanged. We hypothesize that increased endothelium-mediated vasodilatation may contribute to hypotension and syncope in patients with left ventricular outflow obstruction.  (+info)

Balloon-artery interactions during stent placement: a finite element analysis approach to pressure, compliance, and stent design as contributors to vascular injury. (3/740)

Endovascular stents expand the arterial lumen more than balloon angioplasty and reduce rates of restenosis after coronary angioplasty in selected patients. Understanding the factors involved in vascular injury imposed during stent deployment may allow optimization of stent design and stent-placement protocols so as to limit vascular injury and perhaps reduce restenosis. Addressing the hypothesis that a previously undescribed mechanism of vascular injury during stent deployment is balloon-artery interaction, we have used finite element analysis to model how balloon-artery contact stress and area depend on stent-strut geometry, balloon compliance, and inflation pressure. We also examined superficial injury during deployment of stents of varied design in vivo and in a phantom model ex vivo to show that balloon-induced damage can be modulated by altering stent design. Our results show that higher inflation pressures, wider stent-strut openings, and more compliant balloon materials cause markedly larger surface-contact areas and contact stresses between stent struts. Appreciating that the contact stress and contact area are functions of placement pressure, stent geometry, and balloon compliance may help direct development of novel stent designs and stent-deployment protocols so as to minimize vascular injury during stenting and perhaps to optimize long-term outcomes.  (+info)

Physiological changes in blood glucose do not affect gastric compliance and perception in normal subjects. (4/740)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 14 mmol/l) slows gastric emptying and affects the perception of sensations arising from the gut. Elevation of blood glucose within the physiological range also slows gastric emptying. This study aimed to determine whether physiological changes in blood glucose affect proximal gastric compliance and/or the perception of gastric distension in the fasting state. Paired studies were conducted in 10 fasting healthy volunteers. On a single day, isovolumetric and isobaric distensions of the proximal stomach were performed using an electronic barostat while the blood glucose concentration was maintained at 4 and 9 mmol/l in random order. Sensations were quantified using visual analog scales. The blood glucose concentration had no effect on the pressure-volume relationship during either isovolumetric or isobaric distensions or the perception of gastric distension. At both blood glucose concentrations, the perceptions of fullness, nausea, bloating, and abdominal discomfort, but not hunger or desire to eat, were related to intrabag volume (P +info)

Aortic pressure-diameter relationship assessed by intravascular ultrasound: experimental validation in dogs. (5/740)

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) has emerged as an important diagnostic method for evaluating vessel diameter and vessel wall motion. To evaluate the validity of IVUS in assessing changes in the pressure-diameter relationship we compared measurements of abdominal aortic diameters derived from IVUS with those simultaneously obtained at the same site using implanted sonomicrometers in five chronically instrumented conscious dogs and in seven acutely instrumented anesthetized dogs. Five hundred eighty beats were analyzed to obtain peak systolic and end-diastolic diameters and to calculate aortic compliance at different blood pressure levels induced either by an aortic pneumatic cuff or by intravenous injections of nitroglycerin or norepinephrine. IVUS agreed closely with sonomicrometer measurements at different blood pressure levels. However, IVUS slightly but significantly underestimated aortic diameters by 0.6 +/- 0.7 mm for systolic diameters (P < 0.001) and by 0.7 +/- 0.6 mm for diastolic diameters (P < 0.001) compared with the sonomicrometer measurements. We conclude that IVUS is a feasible and reliable method to measure dynamic changes in aortic dimensions and has the potential to provide ready access to assess aortic compliance in humans.  (+info)

The compliance of collagen gels regulates transforming growth factor-beta induction of alpha-smooth muscle actin in fibroblasts. (6/740)

Wound contraction is mediated by myofibroblasts, specialized fibroblasts that appear in large numbers as the wound matures and when resistance to contractile forces increases. We considered that the regulation of myofibroblast differentiation by wound-healing cytokines may be dependent on the resistance of the connective tissue matrix to deformation. We examined transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) induction of the putative fibroblast contractile marker, alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA), and the regulation of this process by the compliance of collagen substrates. Cells were cultured in three different types of collagen gels with wide variations of mechanical compliance as assessed by deformation testing. The resistance to collagen gel deformation determined the levels of intracellular tension as shown by staining for actin stress fibers. For cells plated on thin films of collagen-coated plastic (ie, minimal compliance and maximal intracellular tension), TGF-beta1 (10 ng/ml; 6 days) increased alpha-SMA protein content by ninefold as detected by Western blots but did not affect beta-actin content. Western blots of cells in anchored collagen gels (moderate compliance and tension) also showed a TGF-beta1-induced increase of alpha-SMA content, but the effect was greatly reduced compared with collagen-coated plastic (<3-fold increase). In floating collagen gels (high compliance and low tension), there were only minimal differences of alpha-SMA protein. Northern analyses for alpha-SMA and beta-actin indicated that TGF-beta1 selectively increased mRNA for alpha-SMA similar to the reported protein levels. In pulse-chase experiments, [35S]methionine-labeled intracellular alpha-SMA decayed most rapidly in floating gels, less rapidly in anchored gels, and not at all in collagen plates after TGF-beta1 treatment. TGF-beta1 increased alpha2 and beta1 integrin content by 50% in cells on collagen plates, but the increase was less marked on anchored gels and was undetectable in floating gels. When intracellular tension on collagen substrates was reduced by preincubating cells with blocking antibodies to the alpha2 and beta1 integrin subunits, TGF-beta1 failed to increase alpha-SMA protein content in all three types of collagen matrices. These data indicate that TGF-beta1-induced increases of alpha-SMA content are dependent on the resistance of the substrate to deformation and that the generation of intracellular tension is a central determinant of contractile cytoskeletal gene expression.  (+info)

Assessment of arterial compliance by carotid midwall strain-stress relation in normotensive adults. (7/740)

Examining left ventricular midwall as opposed to endocardial mechanics enhances understanding of left ventricular function in individuals with abnormal cardiac geometry. Accordingly, we used carotid ultrasound and applanation tonometry of arterial pressure to derive carotid midwall strain and its relation to carotid peak-systolic and end-diastolic stresses in 82 apparently normal, employed subjects (56 men, 26 women; median age, 47 years; 70% white; 21% overweight) with no evidence of coronary or valvular heart disease. Regression equations relating carotid luminal and midwall strain to the increment in carotid stress during systole (Deltacarotid stress) were used to predict strain for the observed Deltastress. Observed/predicted carotid luminal or midwall strain was calculated as a measure of carotid luminal or midwall strain for imposed stress, termed stress-corrected strain. Midwall carotid strain was similar in women and men but was negatively related to older age (r=-0.35, P=0.001) and higher body mass index (r=-0.31, P=0.005) and brachial and carotid blood pressure (r=-0.30 to -0.45, all P<0.01). The pulsatile change in arterial load, measured by Deltacarotid stress, was positively related to midwall strain (r=0. 44, P<0.001) more closely than was carotid luminal strain. Regression analyses revealed that carotid midwall strain was positively related to Deltastress, with additional negative relations to age and carotid diastolic diameter (all P<0.001). Stress-corrected carotid midwall strain was strongly and negatively correlated with midwall elastic modulus and Young's modulus (both r=-0.77, P<0.001), followed by elastic modulus (r=-0.74, P<0.001), midwall Young's modulus (r=-0.73, P<0.001), midwall stiffness index (r=-0.70, P<0.001), and stiffness index (r=-0.66, P<0.001). Thus, in normal adults, carotid midwall strain is unrelated to gender, is positively related to pulsatile carotid load as measured by Deltacarotid stress, and is negatively related to age, overweight, and standard measures of arterial stiffness.  (+info)

Assessment of arterial compliance by carotid midwall strain-stress relation in hypertension. (8/740)

To elucidate the relations between arterial hypertrophy and compliance in hypertension, we studied 205 unmedicated hypertensive patients (129 men and 76 women) and 82 normotensive adults (56 men and 26 women) from an employed population by carotid ultrasound, noninvasive applanation tonometry, and echocardiography. Carotid midwall strain and circumferential stress were calculated at end diastole and peak systole. The relations of luminal and midwall strain to the increment in circumferential stress from end diastole to peak systole (Deltacarotid stress in normal subjects) were used to calculate ratios of observed/predicted carotid luminal and midwall strain. Mean stress-corrected luminal strain (82+/-26%) and midwall strain (78+/-23%) were lower (both P<0.001) in hypertensive patients than in normal adults. Stress-corrected luminal strain identified 14% of hypertensive patients with low arterial compliance, while stress-corrected midwall strain was low in 18% of patients. Patients with subnormal carotid midwall strain were older (61+/-12 versus 54+/-12 years, P<0.01) and had larger carotid diameters (6. 6+/-0.8 versus 5.7+/-0.8 mm, P=0.002) and higher brachial pulse pressures (71+/-25 versus 63+/-17 mm Hg, P<0.05) than other patients. Patients with arterial hypertrophy had lower stress-corrected midwall strain than those without hypertrophy (70+/-24% versus 79+/-23%, P=0.05), whereas no difference was observed in stress-corrected luminal strain (P=0.40). Stress-corrected midwall strain tended to be lower in patients with discrete atherosclerotic plaques than in those without (74+/-20% versus 79+/-24%, P=0.15). Compared with patients with normal left ventricular geometry, those with concentric hypertrophy had larger carotid diameters (6.6+/-0.7 versus 5.8+/-0.9 mm, P<0.05) and lower stress-corrected luminal strain (62+/-11% versus 85+/-25%, P<0.05) and midwall strain (59+/-10% versus 81+/-22%, P<0.05). Therefore, stress-corrected midwall strain identifies patients with reduced arterial compliance, increased arterial wall thickness, and abnormal left ventricular geometry better than conventional measures based on arterial lumen diameters.  (+info)

This page contains the article Effect of Long-term Treatment with Antioxidants (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10 and Selenium) on Arterial Compliance, Humoral Factors and Inflammatory Markers in Patients with Multiple Cardiovascular Risk Factors http://www.chiro.org/nutrition/ABSTRACTS/Effect_of_Long-term_Treatment.shtml
The key new findings from the present study include the following. (1) Healthy but sedentary seniors exhibited substantially greater LV stiffness compared with healthy, sedentary young control subjects, providing evidence that cardiac compliance decreases with aging. (2) Ventricles of Masters endurance athletes were much more compliant than those of the age-matched sedentary subjects and virtually identical to those of the young control subjects. Thus, prolonged and sustained endurance training seems to be an effective means of preserving cardiac compliance with aging.. Aging is associated with numerous changes and adaptations in the cardiovascular system. Vascular and ventricular wall thickness increase, whereas arterial compliance, endothelial function, and ventricular contractility decline.6,8,9 Each of these changes is related to an increase in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. There is controversy, however, about to what extent these adaptations are of intrinsic nature, ie, part of a ...
Objective: To investigate the association between peripherally measured arterial compliance and cardiovascular and total mortality in an elderly cohort.. Background: There is limited evidence that systemic indices of elasticity and stiffness in the carotid and femoral arteries can predict incident cardiovascular disease (CVD) events. Little is known about the associations between systemic arterial compliance and CVD events.. Methods: Between 1997 and 1999, 849 community dwelling participants in the Rancho Bernardo Study (mean age 74, 39% male, 4.2% with type 2 diabetes) underwent noninvasive pulse wave measurements. Systemic and brachial artery compliance were estimated using the PulseMetric device applying an algorithm previously validated by angiography. Data on cardiovascular risk factors and fasting blood samples were obtained at the same visit as the compliance measurements, as well as at a follow-up visit conducted within one year. CVD and overall mortality were recorded through January ...
Healthy seniors (n = 102, ,64 years of age) were recruited from pre-identified populations, screened for lifelong patterns of exercise training, and stratified into 1 of 4 groups based on their lifelong histories of endurance exercise training. Sedentary subjects (n = 27) exercised no more than once per week during the previous 25 years; casual exercisers (n = 25) engaged in 2 to 3 sessions per week during the previous 25 years; committed exercisers (n = 25) performed 4 to 5 sessions per week during the previous 25 years; and competitive Masters level athletes (n = 25) trained 6 to 7 times per week and participated in regular competitions sponsored by U.S. Masters organizations during the previous 25 years. Exercise sessions were defined as periods of dynamic activity lasting at least 30 minutes.. Subjects were recruited primarily from the CCLS (Cooper Center Longitudinal Study) (5), a cohort of more than 80,000 individuals in whom physical activity and CV risk factors have been ...
The classic definition by MP Spencer and AB Denison of compliance (C) is the change in arterial blood volume (ΔV) due to a given change in arterial blood pressure (ΔP). They wrote this in the Handbook of Physiology in 1963 in work entitled Pulsatile Flow in the Vascular System. So, C = ΔV/ΔP.[4] Arterial compliance is an index of the elasticity of large arteries such as the thoracic aorta. Arterial compliance is an important cardiovascular risk factor. Compliance diminishes with age and menopause. Arterial compliance is measured by ultrasound as a pressure (carotid artery) and volume (outflow into aorta) relationship.[5] Compliance, in simple terms, is the degree to which a container experiences pressure or force without disruption. It is used as an indication of arterial stiffness. An increase in the age and also in the systolic blood pressure (SBP) is accompanied with decrease on arterial compliance.[6] Endothelial dysfunction results in reduced compliance (increased arterial ...

Y1 - 2016/2. N2 - The normal pulmonary circulation is a low-pressure, highcompliance system. Pulmonary arterial compliance decreases in the presence of pulmonary hypertension because of increased extracellular matrix/collagen deposition in the pulmonary arteries. Loss of pulmonary arterial compliance has been consistently shown to be a predictor of increased mortality in patients with pulmonary hypertension, even more so than pulmonary vascular resistance in some studies. Decreased pulmonary arterial compliance causes premature reflection of waves from the distal pulmonary ...
title: Differential Impact of Net Atrioventricular Compliance on Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Mitral Stenosis According to Cardiac Rhythm, doi: 10.1016/j.echo.2017.01.014, category: Article
Recent epidemiological studies have shown that pulse pressure is a stronger predictor of the risks of cardiovascular disease compared with diastolic or mean blood pressure in those over 50 yr of age (16-18). Pulse pressure arises as a consequence of blood flow ejected by the left ventricle and a buffering or cushioning function of the entire arterial tree, that is, systemic arterial compliance. Thus systemic arterial compliance or its reciprocal, arterial stiffness, is, in essence, characterized by the relationship between pulse pressure and stroke volume. In the present study, we used the ratio of pulse pressure to stroke volume as an index of static systemic arterial stiffness, according to previous reports (9, 12, 43). Since animal studies have shown that the proximal aorta accounts for 60-80% of static systemic arterial compliance (27, 43), this index is considered to reflect primarily central aortic stiffening. Indeed, several recent studies have shown that the ratio of pulse pressure to ...
To the editor: In the March 1999 issue of The American Journal of Physiology, Hardt et al. (1) presented an elegant experimental study on the validation of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in assessing changes in the pressure-diameter relationship in the aorta of dogs. They compared measurements of abdominal aortic diameters derived from IVUS with those obtained at the same site using implanted sonomicrometers. They then calculated the arterial compliance as the ratio of systolic to diastolic amplitude of the diameter to the amplitude of the pressure (1). The unit used to express compliance is micrometers per millimeter of mercury (μm/mmHg).. The classic definition by Spencer and Denison (3) of compliance (C) is the change in arterial blood volume (ΔV) due to a given change in arterial blood pressure (ΔP), i.e., C = ΔV/ΔP. This definition is still accepted (and therefore, C is expressed in μm3/mmHg or m3/kPa).. In clinical practice, cross-sectional compliance (CC) is utilized, assuming ...
Degenerative aortic stenosis (AS), a disease of the elderly, frequently coexists with concomitant diseases, including type 2 diabetes (T2DM) which amplifies the cardiovascular (CV) risk. T2DM affects left ventricular (LV) structure and function via hemodynamic and metabolic factors. In concentric LV geometry, typical for AS, indices of LV midwall mechanics are better estimates of LV function than ejection fraction (EF). Effects of T2DM coexisting with AS on circumferential LV midwall systolic function and large artery properties have not been reported so far. Our aim was to compare characteristics of AS patients with and without T2DM, with a focus on LV midwall systolic function and arterial compliance. Medical records of 130 electively hospitalized patients with moderate or severe isolated degenerative AS were retrospectively analyzed. Exclusion criteria included clinical instability, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and relevant non-cardiac diseases. From in-hospital echocardiography and
Background & Objectives: In 2004, our study group introduced a method to indicate arterial mechanical properties by use of a mechanical impedance model, which we termed arterial stiffness K, which is derived from blood pressure and photo-plethysmogram amplitude. Later, we showed that arterial stiffness K can be used as a sensitive stress response monitor during general anesthesia. However, it is unclear whether differences in K actually indicate changes in the intensity of a noxious stimulus. Thus, we compared K between two groups exposed to 2 and 6 ng/ml remifentanil concentration at the stimulation of laryngoscopy.. Materials & Methods: Following approval from our institutional ethical review board, 30 patients were enrolled and randomly divided into two remifentanil concentration groups (2 and 6 ng/ml). In all, anesthesia was induced by propofol, after which desflurane and the predefined concentration of remifentanil were used. Prior to induction of anesthesia, a photo-plethysmogram probe was ...
Chest wall compliance is the opposite of elasticity, and elasticity is the tendency of lung tissue to return to its original (or relaxed) position after an applied force has been removed. Compliance is essentially the ability of the lung tissue to absorb the same applied force, which generally results from a change in intrathoracic pressure.. Chest wall compliance can be calculated by this formula:. Compliance = Δ V / Δ P. Where change in volume is in liters and change in pressure is in cm H20.. There are two different types of compliance: static and dynamic. Static compliance is a measured during plateau (rather than peak inspiratory) pressure. PEEP should be subtracted from plateau inspiratory pressure in making this calculation. Because the pressure-volume curve (see below) is not linear during inspiration and expiration due to changes in the lung tissue, Dynamic compliance varies and is a calculated with a measurement of tidal volume at a given intrathoracic pressure during which there ...
Title: Possible Links of Age Related Hypertension and Evolution Imposed Features of Heart and Aorta. VOLUME: 1 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Sven Kurbel. Affiliation:Osijek Medical Faculty, J Huttlera 4, 31000 Osijek, Croatia.. Keywords:Hypertension, diastolic aortic pressure, subendocardial muscle, Ageing, Heart and Aorta. Abstract: The left ventricle thickness is a limiting factor of optimal heart size and strength. Due to disappearance of all the features compromising left ventricular compliance, mammalian heart has decreased vascular density and coronary vessel diameter and it requires sufficient diastolic aortic pressure for the left ventricle perfusion. Atrial muscle and the right ventricle are perfused during the entire heart cycle. The systolic pressure in the left ventricle forces blood vessels in the muscle wall to collapse, particularly in the subendocardial muscle layer. This makes the most active part of the heart prone to hypoxia. Optimal perfusion of the left ventricle wall requires ...
Results: CHU significantly increased body mass (P , 0.001) compared with age-matched control rats but was without effect on relative cardiac mass. For incremental increases in left ventricular balloon volume, diastolic pressure was preserved. However, systolic pressure was significantly greater following CHU for balloon volume = 50 μl (P , 0.01) and up to 200 μl (P , 0.05). For higher balloon volumes systolic pressure was not significantly different from control. Developed pressures were correspondingly increased relative to controls for balloon volumes up to 250 μl (P , 0.05).Left ventricular free wall capillary density was significantly decreased in both epicardium (18%; P ,0.05) and endocardium (11%; P , 0.05) despite preserved coronary flow. Western blot analysis revealed no change to the expression of SERCA2a or nNOS but immuno-detectable eNOS protein was significantly decreased (P , 0.001) in cardiac tissue following chronic hypoxia in utero ...
We developed a method to measure the compliance, defined as ΔVΔP, of the total systemic vascular bed (Ct) without stopping systemic flow. In 10 open-chest dogs, venous return (and cardiac output) was maintained at a constant level by inserting a perfusion pump (with no reservoir) between the caval veins and the right atrium. About 5% of the estimated total blood volume was withdrawn from the dog within 45 seconds. Resultant changes in central venous pressure were measured 10, 30, 60, 120, and 180 seconds after the volume change. The bled volume was then reinfused to repeat similar venous pressure measurements for another 180 seconds. The measurements were repeated after slightly increasing the blood volume or sectioning the vagi. The mean value of Ct measured 10 seconds after hemorrhage or reinfusion was 1.96 ± 0.10 (SE) ml/mm Hg/kg body weight before vagotomy. Paired t-tests indicated no significant difference between measurements of bleeding and reinfusion, measurements with different ...

Here, we reveal a novel mechanism whereby loss of wall distensibility blunts endothelial cell protection to oxidant stress-induced apoptosis. Bovine aortic endothelial cells cultured in compliant or stiff silastic tubes were pulse perfused by arterial pressure/flow waveforms generated by a servo-pump. Pulse perfusion induced time-dependent Akt activation peaking ,6-fold after 2 hours in compliant tubes and a similar time course but half the magnitude in stiff tubes. This was accompanied by quantitatively similar disparities in phosphoinositide-3 kinase activation and in Akt-stimulated suppressors of apoptosis: glycogen ...

In some ways the kill-cam shot is not very different from a normal horror movie experience - the first person perspective may bring us closer to the killer, but the third person view still relies on voyeuristic compliance on the audiences part.

Michael the child eventually becomes a figure in black wearing a modified William Shatner mask. The masks blankness, its grim unchanging face on which no definitive emotion can be shown, becomes a space on which the audience can project their fears.

This study evaluated the effects of a single dose of pregabalin on colonic sensation and motor function in healthy adults and demonstrated that 200 mg of pregabalin reduces mean gas and pain sensation ratings in response to four random-order phasic distensions over the range of pressures, with the highest pressures reaching around 50 mmHg. These significant reductions in sensation ratings of gas and pain were observed in the absence of any significant effects on relaxation and only small effects on energy and drowsiness, the latter being significant on unadjusted comparison. These data suggest that the effect of pregabalin is mediated by a decrease in peripheral or spinal afferent functions. In our study, the two doses of pregabalin tested did not significantly affect sensation thresholds, colonic compliance, colonic fasting tone, or phasic MI.. A reduction in rectal pain sensation in response to distension was also reported by Houghton et al. (16) in patients with IBS. Human and rodent studies ...

Our study shows that in patients with mild CHF radial artery compliance was less than in control normotensive and hypertensive subjects. However, it also shows that in these patients 4- and 8-week administrations of benazepril at a dose that clearly interfered with the renin-angiotensin system were accompanied by an increase in arterial compliance that made its values similar to those of the two control groups, in which an observational period or ACE inhibitor treatment of similar duration had no effect. This provides the first evidence that the reduction of radial artery compliance occurring in mild CHF1 2 is not irreversible. On the contrary, this reduction is improved by ACE inhibitor treatment, and the improvement can be such as to quickly, completely, and persistently reverse the compliance alteration characterizing this condition.1 2 The mechanisms responsible for the impairment of radial artery compliance in CHF patients are not known. However, it can be suggested that the impairment may ...

Cardiac tamponade arises due to equalisation of cardiac pressures leading to impaired biventricular filling. The pericardial sack has some elasticity which is quickly reached with fluid accumulation. Cardiac volume becomes smaller during systole and venous return shifts to cardiac systole to reduce cardiac output. Normally, systemic venous return to the right side of the heart increases with inspiration and pulmonary venous return to the left heart decreases with inspiration so that systemic arterial pressure normally falls by ,10 mmHg during inspiration.. In cardiac tamponade, the rigid pericardium prevents the free wall from expanding. Thus, the distension of the right ventricle is limited to the interventricular septum and this causes the septum to bulge to the left, reducing left ventricular compliance and contributing to further decreased filling of the left ventricle during inspiration. This leads to an exaggerated drop in systolic blood pressure in inspiration called pulsus paradoxus. Our ...
Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a disorder of the heart muscle in people with diabetes. It can lead to inability of the heart to circulate blood through the body effectively, a state known as heart failure, with accumulation of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema) or legs (peripheral edema). Most heart failure in people with diabetes results from coronary artery disease, and diabetic cardiomyopathy is only said to exist if there is no coronary artery disease to explain the heart muscle disorder. One particularity of diabetic cardiomyopathy is the long latent phase, during which the disease progresses but is completely asymptomatic. In most cases, diabetic cardiomyopathy is detected with concomitant hypertension or coronary artery disease. One of the earliest signs is mild left ventricular diastolic dysfunction with little effect on ventricular filling. Also, the diabetic patient may show subtle signs of diabetic cardiomyopathy related to decreased left ventricular compliance or left ventricular ...
Several publications from a group in Dallas (5) provide useful insights regarding the mechanism by which a higher level of exercise would lessen heart failure risk, that is diastolic heart failure ( i.e heart failure with preserved resting ejection fraction frequently abbreviated as HFpEF). Dr Paul Bhella and his associates did extensive physiological studies on four groups of healthy volunteers over the age of 64. Four groups were designated on the basis of their exercise history for the preceding 25 years. (not a typo) 1) sedentary-no more than one exercise session per week 2) casual exerciser-2-3 session per week 3) committed exercisers-4-5 session per week and 4)competitive master level athletes -6-7 session per week and competed regularly. All had normal systolic function ( as defined by a normal resting ejection fraction) but groups one and two has decreased left ventricular compliance while the committed and competitive groups had left ventricular pressure volume curves and left ...
OBJECTIVES--To examine the relation between disproportionate fetal growth and adult blood pressure and to investigate whether arterial compliance in adult life is related to early development. DESIGN--A follow up study of a group of men and women whose birth weights and other measurements of body size had been recorded at birth. SETTING--Home and outpatient study. SUBJECTS--337 men and women born in the Jessop Hospital, Sheffield, between 1939 and 1940. MAIN OUTCOME--Adult systolic and diastolic blood pressures and arterial compliance as measured by pulse wave velocity in two arterial segments. RESULTS--Both systolic and diastolic blood pressures were higher in people whose birth weight was low, who were short or who had small abdominal or head circumferences at birth. Systolic blood pressure decreased by 2.7 mm Hg (95% CI 0.8 to 4.6) for each pound (454 g) gain in birth weight and by 3.4 mm Hg (95% CI 1.4 to 5.4) for each inch (2.54 cm) increase in crown-heel length. Diastolic pressure fell by ...
It is important to note that there is no certification recognized by the US HHS for HIPAA compliance and that complying with HIPAA is a shared responsibility between the customer and Google.

Central blood pressure (CBP) parameters will be measured and used to derive the aortic augmentation index (AIx). The AIx quantifies the contribution of back-reflected outgoing systolic pressure waves to late-systolic central blood pressure, which increases with decreasing aortic compliance. AIx is measured by pulse wave analysis using the SphygmoCor System supplied by AtCor Medical. Results with a , 5% decrease in AIx were planned for analysis; results with a , 5% decrease in AIx were not analysed ...
It is well known that the sensitivity of the reflex control of HR in response to vasoactive agents is altered independently by hypertension and by aging in both animal models (27), and in human subjects (22, 26, 49). A consequence of both hypertension and aging is a reduction in vascular distensibility, although the mechanisms are not identical. The demonstration that reduced baroreceptor sensitivity could be accounted for by reduced aortic compliance observed in both aged normotensive rats (5) and hypertensive rats (51), as discussed in the previous section, may provide an explanation for the decreased baroreflex control of HR in hypertensive subjects and aged normotensive humans.. For example, Monahan et al. (43) measured baroreflex control of HR and carotid compliance in 47 healthy sedentary men ranging from 19 to 76 years of age. Monahan and colleagues reported a progressive decline in baroreflex sensitivity with increasing age. The decline in baroreflex sensitivity correlated significantly ...
Full reference: Granier, C., The Jurisprudence of the Firms established as prosecutors and Judges of themselves by Compliance La, in Frison-Roche, M.-A. (ed.), Compliance Jurisdictionalisation, series Compliance & Regulation, Journal of Regulation & Compliance (JoRC) and Bruylant, to be published. ___. ► Article Summary: (done par the author): Because Compliance shakes up established frameworks, Compliance forces to look at certain concepts in a new light, which until then seemed to be well tamed. This is particularly the case with the notion of Jurisprudence. Recent developments in Compliance indeed raise questions about the possible existence of jurisprudence (case law) that would be produced by companies during the implementation of compliance procedures.. At first glance, the concept of business jurisprudence may appear unnatural because case law is traditionally understood as the fruit of the office of the Judge and, more particularly, of the State Judge. However, the observation ...
The contribution of medial calcification to vascular dysfunction in renal failure is unknown. Vascular function was measured ex vivo in control, noncalcified uremic, and calcified uremic aortas from rats with adenine-induced renal failure. Plasma urea was 16 + 4, 93 + 14, and 110 + 25 mg/dl, and aortic calcium was 27 + 4, 29 + 2, and 4946 + 1616 nmol/mg dry weight respectively in the three groups. Maximal contraction by phenylephrine (PE) or KCl was reduced 53 % and 63 % in uremic aortas and sensitivity, EC50 value, to KCl but not PE was increased. Maximal relaxation to acetylcholine was impaired in uremic aortas (30 % vs. 65 %) and sensitivity to nitroprusside was also reduced, indicating some impairment of endothelium-independent relaxation as well. None of these parameters differed between calcified and noncalcified uremic aortas. However, aortic compliance was reduced in calcified aortas, ranging from 17 % to 61 % depending on the severity of calcification. We conclude that uremic vascular ...
There is a strong genetic predisposition towards abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), but it is unknown whether persons without AAA but with first-degree relatives who are AAA patients have a generalized dilating diathesis, defect arterial wall mechanics, or increased cardiovascular risk. The aim of the study was to investigate arterial diameters and wall mechanics at multiple arterial sites in these subjects and compare them with controls without a family history of AAA. This study included 118 first-degree relatives of patients with AAA and 66 controls (age: 40-80years). The abdominal aorta, common carotid artery, common femoral artery, and popliteal artery were investigated by echo-tracking ultrasound. The relatives had no arterial dilatation, but they did tend to have smaller diameters than controls. Relatives had a higher heart rate, diastolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure than controls. The distensibility coefficient and the compliance coefficient were decreased in all arteries in ...

Several well-known equations for estimating the crack length in the single-edge notched bending (SE(B)) specimens from the normalized crack mouth opening displacement (CMOD) compliance are evaluated based on two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) finite element analyses (FEAs). Two-dimensional FEAs are first carried out to verify the reported accuracy and applicable ranges for each equation based on the plane strain models with six different crack lengths. Three-dimensional FEAs are then carried out to estimate the errors of prediction of equations that evaluate the crack length from the plane stress- and plane strain-based CMOD compliances. Both plane-sided and side-grooved models are included in 3D FEAs and have seven different thickness-to-width ratios. The error of prediction of a given equation is largely impacted by the thickness-to-width ratio, the crack length, the presence of side grooves, and the use of the plane stress- or plane strain-normalized CMOD compliance. Based on the ...
