  • A new device for sutureless vascular anastomosis

    Sessa and colleagues report on the new vascular connector (NVC), a hypothetical design of a vascular device, for creation and maintenance of sutureless vascular anastomosis. The authors claim that introduction of the safe and reliable NVC would shorten operation times and prevent operative and post-operative complications.

    Promiscuity pays

    Monogamous female Drosophila suffer decreased fertility compared to multiply mated females, apparently due to differing transcriptional changes in response to mating; monogamous females have a more virgin-like expression profile than promiscuous females.
