Prevention of Intra-abdominal Adhesions by Electrical Stimulation. The study investigated the ability of transdermal electric stimulation to prevent the formation of intra-abdominal adhesions in the combination with Seprafilm® (anti-adhesive agent). One hundred and twenty-eight (128) rabbits were subjected to a surgical procedure to simulate the adhesion processes. After the simulation, the animals were divided into 4 groups (32 animals each), depending on the application of the methods (...) of prevention: (1) control group (no anti-adhesives or electro-stimulation) (CG); (2) comparison group (applications of Seprafilm®) (SF); (3) comparison group 2 (transdermal electric stimulation of the abdominal muscles) TES; (4) group (transdermal electric stimulation + Seprafilm®) (TES + SF). We observed that the application of the Seprafilm® alone led to a significant decrease in the adhesive process compared to the control group (CG) (p < 0.01).

91. High-frequency electrical stimulation of the anterior thalamic nuclei increases vigilance in epilepsy patients during relaxed and drowsy wakefulness. (Abstract)

High-frequency electrical stimulation of the anterior thalamic nuclei increases vigilance in epilepsy patients during relaxed and drowsy wakefulness. High-frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS) of anterior thalamic nuclei (ANT) reduces the frequency and intensity of focal and focal to bilateral tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. We investigated the impact of high-frequency ANT-DBS on vigilance in epilepsy patients during relaxed and drowsy wakefulness, to better understand the effects (...) and the mechanisms of action of this intervention in humans.Four patients with different structural epileptic pathologies were included in this retrospective case-cohort study. Short- and long-term electroencephalography (EEG) was used to determine states of relaxed or drowsy wakefulness and the vigilance changes during stimulation-on and stimulation-off intervals.In relaxed, wakeful patients with eyes closed, the eyelid artifact rate increased acutely and reproducibly during stimulation-on intervals, suggesting

Realistic Electric Field Mapping of Anisotropic Muscle During Electrical Stimulation Using a Combination of Water Diffusion Tensor and Electrical Conductivity To realistically map the electric fields of biological tissues using a diffusion tensor magnetic resonance electrical impedance tomography (DT-MREIT) method to estimate tissue response during electrical stimulation.Imaging experiments were performed using chunks of bovine muscle. Two silver wire electrodes were positioned inside (...) the muscle tissue for electrical stimulation. Electric pulses were applied with a 100-V amplitude and 100-μs width using a voltage stimulator. During electrical stimulation, we collected DT-MREIT data from a 3T magnetic resonance imaging scanner. We adopted the projected current density method to calculate the electric field. Based on the relation between the water diffusion tensor and the conductivity tensor, we computed the position-dependent scale factor using the measured magnetic flux density data
