Despite improvements in organ preservation solutions, ischemia--reperfusion (I/R) damage during the preservation and implantation of the liver is still major problem in liver transplantation [1]. The aim of this study was to investigate role of necrosis and apoptosis during hepatic ischemia and reperfusion. Twelve wistar rats were divided into sham-operated ...

Peritendinous adhesions following tendon repair or tendon grafting resulting in restricting of movements and contracture of the finger joints are frequently seen in human being. In draught animals this may also crippled the animal following limiting movements of the joints. We evaluated the efficacy of hyaluronic acid (HA) and autogenous ...

Uncemented THR can present component fixation problem. The loosening of the prosthesis is one of the main complications leading to revision of THR surgery. Bending in prosthesis stem is a notable feature. The geometric shape of prosthesis has a major role on the stress transfer in supporting structures. The objective ...

Vascular support structures are important devices for treating valve stenosis. Large population of patients is treated for valvular disease and the principal mode of treatment is the use of Percutaneous Valvuloplasty. Stent devices are proving to be an improved technology in minimal invasive cardiac surgery. This technology now accounts for ...

Poly (a-caprolactone) microspheres containing vitamin B12 were prepared by emulsification solvent evaporation method. We compared encapsulation of vitamin B12 in poly (e-caprolactone) by three methods, oil-in-oil (o/o) melt encapsulation (melt) and water-in-oil-in-water (w/o/w). Process variables for oil-in-oil method were the polymer concentration, solvent ratio and external oil phase volume. The ...

Colonization of microorganisms in resilient liners is one of the main causes of denture stomatitis. Candida albicans is the most widely isolated organism during denture stomatitis. Use of resilient liners with antifungal activity can be of great help for such patients. Aim of the present in vitro study is to ...

Purpose: Estimate the costs of physical inactivity in West Virginia, a rural, Appalachian state of less than 2 million people. Design: Using the most recent year in which complete data were available and a previously developed algorithm, we estimated the costs of physical inactivity in the state of West Virginia. ...

Malignant mesothelioma (MME) is an aggressive tumor of serosal surfaces resistant to current treatment options. MME is typically diagnosed in middle aged males exposed to asbestos in the workplace. However, MME is occasionally diagnosed at an earlier age without an obvious source of exposure. MME typically carries an average survival ...

The role of hypothermia in the improvement of outcomes among patients suffering severe head injury remains controversial. The "National Acute Brain Injury Study: Hypothermia (NABIS:H)" is a series of prospective trials trying to determine if this therapy provides a beneficial effect. This report describes the case of a patient ejected ...

We describe a soil--landscape investigation conducted in a South Australian upland hillslope (128ha) to understand the distribution and causes of saline--sodic soil patterns using convenient, ground-based geophysical surveys of the hillslope. These surveys included: (i) EM31 for deep (~6 m) apparent electrical conductivity ([EC.sub.a]) patterns, (ii) EM38 for shallow (>1.5 ...

Medicago sativa, a perennial species of the genus Medicago, is particularly cultivated in the Tunisian oases. Three M. sativa cultivated varieties (Magali A, Gabes2355, ABT805) and 1 genotype from a local provenance (Widhref) were cultivated on 4 Tunisian soil samples exhibiting contrasting pedo-climatic characteristics. Results showed that nodulation and aerial ...

This study aimed to determine whether >80 years of fertiliser application has led to recognisable changes in the trace metal (Cd, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sr, Th, U, Zn) chemistry of topsoils (0-0.10 m) from sugarcane land, northern Queensland, Australia. The metal concentrations of commercial nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) ...
