  • Relationships between plasma lipids, proteins, surface tension and post-dive bubblesPeer reviewedOpen access 

    13 février 2015, Schellaert, Nicolas; Rolzoznik, Miroslav; Balestra, Costantino, HE Bruxelles Brabant
    Article scientifique
    Decompression sickness (DCS) in divers is caused by bubbles of inert gas. When DCS occurs, most bubbles can be found in the venous circulation: venous gas emboli (VGE). Bubbles are thought to be stabilized by low molecular weight surfactant reducing the plasma-air surface tension (γ). Proteins may play a role as well. We studied the interrelations between these substances, γ and VGE, measured before ...

    18 janvier 2017, Germonpré, Peter; Balestra, Costantino, HE Bruxelles Brabant
    Article scientifique
    BACKGROUND: Using ultrasound imaging, vascular gas emboli (VGE) are observed after asymptomatic scuba dives and are considered a key element in the potential development of decompression sickness (DCS). Diving is also accompanied with vascular dysfunction, as measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD). Previous studies showed significant intersubject variability to VGE for the same diving exposure and ...
  • Correlation between Patent Foramen Ovale, cerebral “lesions” and neuropsychometric testing in experienced sports divers: does diving damage the brain?Peer reviewedOpen access 

    01 juin 2016, Balestra, Costantino; Germonpré, Peter, HE Bruxelles Brabant
    Article scientifique
    SCUBA diving exposes divers to decompression sickness (DCS). There has been considerable debate whether divers with a Patent Foramen Ovale of the heart have a higher risk of DCS because of the possible right-to-left shunt of venous decompression bubbles into the arterial circulation. Symptomatic neurological DCS has been shown to cause permanent damage to brain and spinal cord tissue; it has been ...
