Calcite (CaCO3) is a geologically abundant material, which can be used as a starting material in producing biomedical scaffolds for clinical dental and orthopedic applications. Bone-filling applications require porous, biocompatible, and resorbable materials. Commercially available CaCO3 powders were physically mixed, for 80-90 s, with an orthophosphoric acid (H3PO4) solution, which was partially neutralized to pH 3.2 by adding NaOH, to form biphasic, micro-, and macroporous calcite-apatitic calcium phosphate (Ap-CaP) cement scaffolds of low strength. The resultant carbonated and Na-doped Ap-CaP phase in these scaffolds crystallogra . . .phically and spectroscopically resembled calcium hydroxyapatite. Upon mixing CaCO3 powders and the setting solution, carbon dioxide gas was in situ generated and formed the pores. Thus formed scaffolds contained pores over the range of 20-750 µm. Scaffolds were also converted to single-phase Ap-CaP, without altering their porosity, by soaking them in 0.5 M phosphate buffer solutions at 80°C for 36 h in glass bottles. Soerensen's buffer solution was also shown to be able to convert the calcite powders into single-phase Ap-CaP powders upon soaking at 60-80°C. This robust procedure of synthesizing Ap-CaP bioceramics is simple and economical. © 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be seen in almost all races and age groups. Although many of the risk factors have been identified and several agents are currently used in its management and prevention, still it is not possible to predict accurately its development, symptoms, and progression to pulmonary embolism (PE) in a particular setting. Every year, at least 100,000 individuals die of DVT and PE in the USA. DVT is a complication usually occurring after hip fractures of the elderly or surgery for total joint replacement or spinal stenosis and mostly affecting elderly and bedridden patients. But, the frequency of DVT is quite high . . . among athletes and professional sport players. In general, DVT risk is 85% greater among athletes when compared to normal population due to the specific risk factors of sports. DVT and PE may be seen in athletes actively taking part in sportive activities, traveling, exposing to sportive trauma, or undergoing surgery for any reason, even at a relatively young age. In this chapter, the risk factors, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of DVT and PE in athletes are discussed. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012 Daha fazlası Daha az

High quality suppliers are necessary for the success of any organization. To guarantee good quality products from suppliers, it is necessary to optimize the process parameters immediately when deviations of the part quality, that is required by the customer, have been observed. Optimization of process parameters are only possible when an experienced process operator adjusts the parameters of the process manually. Although statistical process control (SPC) enable the quality of conformance to be monitored and special causes of process variability to be identified, it is not well applied in some enterprises due to fact that operators . . .cannot determine the 'out-of-control' position of the process, and the root causes of the quality problems with the limited knowledge they have. Therefore, the presented approach develops a system which combines dynamic control chart with the expert knowledge library. The system is carried out in two steps: the first step, a quality controller checks the product quality according to the reference values, when the process is going to be out of control, the system will give a warning to remind operators to take action exactly and keep the process in normal; in the second step, the system will give the related information and valuable suggestions to operator and help them to take correct action to keep the process in control.

Aim. Three incisional ventral abdominal wall hernias were repaired by placing a 20 30cm composite mesh via single incision of 2cm. Methods. All three cases had previous operations and presented with giant incisional defects clinically. The defects were repaired laparoscopically via single incision with the placement of a composite mesh of 20 30cm. Nonabsorbable sutures were needed to hang and fix the mesh only in the first case. Double-crown technique was used in all of the cases to secure the mesh to the anterior abdominal wall. Results. The mean operation time was 120 minutes. The patients were mobilized and led for oral intake at . . . the first postoperative day. No morbidity occurred. Conclusion. Abdominal incisional hernias can be repaired via single incision with a mesh application in experienced centers. © 2011 Umut Barbaros et al Daha fazlası Daha az

Priapism is defined as having prolonged (more than 6 h), and usually painful penile erection that occurs without a sexual desire or arousal. Only a very few priapism cases caused by ziprasidone are reported in the literature. In this case report we aimed to present a prolonged penile erection due to use of ziprasidone. © 2013 Korean Neuropsychiatric Association.

Many hypertensive patients require ?2 drugs to achieve blood pressure targets. This study aims to review and analyze the clinical studies conducted with dual or triple combination of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), calcium channel blockers (CCBs), and diuretics. Medical literature between January 1990 and April 2012 was reviewed systematically and data from eligible studies were abstracted. Data were analyzed using random-effects models. Of the 224 studies screened, 7563 eligible patients from 11 studies were included. Triple combinations of ARBs (olmesartan or valsartan), CCBs (amlodipine), and diuretics (hydrochlorothiazi . . .de) at any dose provided more blood pressure reduction in office and 24-hour ambulatory measurements than any dual combination of these molecules ( Daha fazlası Daha az

A Gram-positive-staining, rod-shaped, facultatively oligotrophic bacterial strain, designated MB18T, was isolated from a water sample collected from the River Mahananda at Siliguri (26° 44' 23.20' N, 88° 25' 22.89' E), West-Bengal, India. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, the closest relative of this strain was Brevibacterium epidermidis NCDO 2286T (96% similarity). The DNA G+C content of strain MB18T was 64.6 mol%. Chemotaxonomic data [MK-8(H2) as the major menaquinone, galactose as the sole cell-wall sugar, meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid, phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylgl . . .ycerol as constituents of the polar lipids, anteiso-C15: 0, anteiso-C17: 0 and iso-C15: 0 as the major fatty acids] supported the affiliation of strain MB18T to the genus Brevibacterium. The results of DNA G+C content, 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and biochemical and physiological analyses allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain MB18T from its nearest neighbour B. epidermidis. The isolate therefore represents a novel species, for which the name Brevibacterium siliguriense sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is MB18T (=DSM 23676T=LMG 25772T). © 2013 IUMS Daha fazlası Daha az

Although European Union already plays a significant role in shaping international society, it may still influence international society more effectively. In this study, this claim will be demonstrated with reference to the success of European countries in transforming the concept of sovereignty and to three other characteristics of the union which have emerged in the process of integration: (1) implicit formation, (2) passive defense, and (3) will-power and concert. Moreover, it will be argued that arrangements, which remove structural inconsistencies of the union, and policies, which facilitate inclusion of Turkey to the union, wil . . .l play a significant role in enhancing the European Union's capacity to mould the international society. As a result, in spite of its inability to affect international order, this paper will describe the Union's potential to influence international society and discuss the strategies to increase this potential Daha fazlası Daha az

The aim of this paper is to analyse the different behaviors of ISE 100 Price Index, ISE Food&Beverages Sector Index, ISE Bank Sector Index and Ülker Bisküvi stock focusing on the outperformance of ISE Food&Beverages Sector Index and Ülker Bisküvi against the markets after 2008 global financial crisis. We used GARCH models to understand the bahvior of the indices and Ülker Bisküvi stock returns before and after the global financial crisis which we concluded that the outperformance of Ülker is related with its business restructuring events and dividend payment announces rater than global indicator while indices, especially Bank Sector . . . Index, are much more related with global financial market developments. © EuroJournals, Inc. 2012 Daha fazlası Daha az
