Aims: Pseudo-aneurysm (PA) of the femoral artery is the most frequent complication after diagnostic or therapeutic catheterisation. PA may manifest with large and painful haematoma or compression of the adja-cent nerve and vein. Among several therapeutic approaches, compression by injection of saline around the neck is a recent and promising method. To explore compression with saline as an...

Background— Arginase competes with endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) for the substrate L-arginine and decreases NO production. This study investigated regulatory mechanisms of arginase activity in endothelial cells and its role in atherosclerosis. Methods and Results— In human endothelial cells isolated from umbilical veins, thrombin concentration- and time-dependently stimulated...
