Re: 4th Annual ISNVD conference announced

See link below for additional information on ASL (arterial spin labeling)...cerebrovascular imaging modality used to evaluate perfusion that does not require the injection of a contrast agent. A drawback potentially is that ASL imaging of venous return becomes more problematic as the velocity of the...

Re: Sun exposure promotes nitric oxide release

Dr. Weller mentions leafy green vegetables in his presentation. Here is some additional information from another source..... The amount of Nitric Oxide activity that can be gained from food sources is dependent upon the amount of nitrite, nitrate and antioxidants contained in the foods as well as th...

Re: Sun exposure promotes nitric oxide release

Thanks Cheer...research continues to support the vascular connection and the importance of blood flow.
Here is a presentation by Dr. Richard Weller discussing the link between sun exposure and nitric oxide release.

Re: Sun exposure promotes nitric oxide release

Very interesting. Previous studies have found that while increased vitamin D levels link to lower cardiovascular disease, oral supplements do not have an effect on this. Human skin contains large stores of nitrite (NO2) and nitrate (NO3). The researchers note that while nitrate is "biologically iner...

Sun exposure promotes nitric oxide release

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/260247.php In the landmark study, the researchers found that when sunlight touches our skin, a compound called nitric oxide that helps lower blood pressure, is released into our blood vessels. The researchers note that rates of high blood pressure and cardiov...

Good stuff huh....I also noticed these sections of the article. Sutures are troublesome in other ways, too. They can lead to complications, such as intimal hyperplasia, in which cells respond to the trauma of the needle and thread by proliferating on the inside wall of the blood vessel, causing it t...

Sutureless Method for Joining Blood Vessels Invented

Much testing remains....not ready for prime time just yet. Reconnecting severed blood vessels is mostly done the same way today -- with sutures -- as it was 100 years ago, when the French surgeon Alexis Carrel won a Nobel Prize for advancing the technique. Now, a team of researchers at the Stanford ...
