  • The accumulation of pleural fluid during labour - Postpartum pleural effusion 

    Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Karantanas, A. H.; Karvelas, S. N.; Molyvdas, P. A. (1998)
    Objectives: Labour appears to promote the development of pleural effusion. The presence of pleural fluid at the end of normal pregnancy and after an uncomplicated labour was investigated using thoracic ultrasonography. ...
  • BENIGN POSTPARTUM PLEURAL EFFUSION 

    Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Karantanas, A. H.; Diminikou, G.; Molyvdas, P. A. (1995)
    The conditions of labour appear to favour the development of pleural effusion, The frequency of postpartum pleural effusion was investigated in this study using thoracic ultrasonography. Thirty one postpartum and 22 healthy ...
  • Dexamethasone decreases the transmesothelial electrical resistance of the parietal and visceral pleura 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Deligiorgi, T.; Stefanidis, I.; Liakopoulos, V.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Hatzoglou, C. (2009)
    The effect of dexamethasone on the transmesothelial electrical resistance (R (TM)) of sheep pleura was investigated by Ussing chamber experiments. Our results show that dexamethasone decreases the R (TM) of sheep pleurae, ...
  • Effect of amiloride in human and sheep parietal pleura 

    Sarkos, S.; Hatzoglou, C.; Dahabre, J.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Molyvdas, P. A. (2002)
    The fluid and solute transport properties of human parietal pleura were studied and compared with sheep parietal pleura in vitro. The pleura was mounted as a planar sheet between Ussing-type chambers. The results presented ...
  • Effects of SNP, ouabain, and amiloride on electrical potential profile of isolated sheep pleura 

    Hatzoglou, C. H.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Molyvdas, P. A. (2001)
    The fluid and solute transport properties of pleural tissue were studied by using specimens of intact visceral and parietal pleura from adult sheep lungs. The samples were transferred to the laboratory in a Krebs-Ringer ...
  • Fluid Flow at the Nanoscale: How Fluid Properties Deviate from the Bulk 

    Sofos, F.; Karakasidis, T. E.; Liakopoulos, A. (2013)
    The studies of fluid flows have been lately transferred to a significant extend at the micro- and the nano-scale, since there is increasing interest in applications that could make possible the construction of systems from ...
  • Salbutamol Modulation of Ion Transport in Sheep Parietal Pleura Is Protein Dependent 

    Zarogiannis, S. G.; Filippidis, A. S.; Hatzoglou, C.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Gourgoulianis, K. (2011)
    The formation of pleural effusion during pulmonary edema is an important physiological mechanism of resolution of alveolar flooding. In cases of pulmonary edema resulting from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) ...
  • Software upgrading in a CT scanner - Influence on quantitative CT 

    KalefEzra, J. A.; Karantanas, A. H. (1996)
    Purpose: In an attempt to improve field uniformity and CT number stability, the software in a CT scanner was replaced with a new version. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the influence of the software ...
  • Surface wettability effects on flow in rough wall nanochannels 

    Sofos, F.; Karakasidis, T. E.; Liakopoulos, A. (2012)
    The effect of rough-wall/fluid interaction on flow in nanochannels is investigated by NEMD. Hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces are studied for walls with nearly atomic-size rectangular protrusions and cavities. Our NEMD ...
  • Transient flow and heat transfer phenomena in inclined wavy films 

    Serifi, K.; Malamataris, N. A.; Bontozoglou, V. (2004)
    A finite-element numerical scheme is used to study rigorously the flow of an inclined liquid film and the heat transfer from the constant-temperature wall. Regular inlet disturbances are predicted to evolve into periodic ...
  • Two-regime dynamical behaviour in Lennard-Jones systems: Spectral and rescaled range analysis 

    Karakasidis, T. E.; Liakopoulos, A. B. (2004)
    In this work we present an analysis of temperature and pressure time series obtained by microcanonical (constant energy) molecular dynamics simulations. Simulations in the solid and fluid states were performed using a ...
