Pleural electrophysiology variations according to location in pleural cavity
The aim of the study was to compare the electrophysiology profile of sheep pleura originated from different locations of the pleural cavity with the respective profile in humans. Sheep specimens obtained from upper and ...
Enhancement of the transmesothelial resistance of the parietal sheep peritoneum by epinephrine in vitro: Ussing-type chamber experiments
The peritoneal mesothelium constitutes an ion transport barrier that is taken advantage of in peritoneal dialysis. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of epinephrine on the electrical transmesothelial ...
Rapid effects of 17β-estradiol and progesterone on sheep visceral and parietal pleurae via a nitric oxide pathway
We investigated the effects of 17β-estradiol and progesterone on transepithelial electrical resistance (R TE) in sheep visceral and parietal pleurae. Specimens of intact pleurae from adult female sheep were used. The samples ...
Permeability of the arachnoid and pia mater. The role of ion channels in the leptomeningeal physiology
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to study the ionic permeability of the leptomeninges related to the effect of ouabain (sodium-potassium-ATPase inhibitor) and amiloride (epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) inhibitor) on ...
Human parietal pleura present electrophysiology variations according to location in pleural cavity
The aim of the study was to investigate if human pleura from different anatomical locations presents electrophysiology differences. Specimens were stripped over the 2nd-5th rib (cranial), 8th-10th rib (caudal), and mediastinum ...
