A new shape for an old function: lasting effect of a physiologic surgical restoration of the left ventricle

submitted by: makyr
Background Long-term morphofunctional outcome may vary widely in surgical anterior left ventricular wall restoration, suggesting variability in post-surgical remodeling similar to that observed following acute myocardial infarction. The aim of this pilot study was to demonstrate that surgical restoration obtained with a particular shape of endoventricular patch leads to steady morphofunctional ventricular improvement when geometry, volume and residual akinesia can be restored as...

ES4FUN 2.2 - Feedback and structural symmetries

submitted by: es4fun
ES4FUN is a Physics-driven educational project with the aim of spreading universal scientific concepts in a game context, with research high-tech and audio+video clip support Interactive video games have been implemented with LabVIEW to highlight the concepts feedback and structural symmetries. The clip has been made with the graphic material recorded during the III Workshop on Teaching Innovation in Chemistry (University of Cadiz, 23-25 June 2008), in collaboration with the UCADanza...

It’s easy to get lost on the biological superhighway. Thankfully, we brought a map.

Biological annotations and terms have gotten a makeover with RGD’s interactive pathway diagrams. The Rat Genome Database makes biological pathways and their components easy to navigate and analyze through this newly added diagrams feature at http://rgd.mcw.edu/wg/pathway?100 . This video will show you how to easily access, view, and gather information from these diagrams and all the great tools they offer. See our RGD website at http://rgd.mcw.edu for more information and tools for...
