Conclusion: Silent type 1 CNV is an established complication of chronic CSCR. SS-OCTA is indispensable in excluding CNV especially in high-risk patients and whenever FFA and SS-OCT are inconclusive. PMID: 29348931 [PubMed]

We report a case of a 51-year-old man with NPC. PET-CT scan revealed a space-occupying lesion in the left lung, and the pathologic result confirmed the occupying lesion originated from NPC. Meanwhile, both immunohistochemistry and PCR revealed that the occupying lesion belonged to pMMR NPC. The lung lesions largely shrunk after chemoradiotherapy. One year later, MRI showed brain occupancy, and brain lesion resection surgery was performed subsequently. The resected tissue was also validated to be the metastatic lesion from NPC. After one month, the patient was examined again by PET-CT, which showed multiple metastases in th...

Publication date: May 2018 Source:Materials Research Bulletin, Volume 101 Author(s): Khadija Elatmani, Najwa Ben oujji, Gaël Plantara, Vincent Goetz, Ihya Ait ichou This work focuses on the development of innovative photocatalytic material, for decontamination of water from pollutants, by functionalization of reticulated metallic foam with TiO2. The composition and texture of the prepared photocatalyst support were characterized using scanning electron microscope. The results showed a good deposition of the catalyst on the surface of the tested media with a recovery rate of 40 ± 3% which was interesting co...

Publication date: May 2018 Source:Materials Research Bulletin, Volume 101 Author(s): Song Chen, Wen Li, De-Gui Zhu Influences of TeO2 on phase evolutions and sintering behaviors of MO-TeO2-V2O5 (M = Ca, Sr, Ba) ultralow temperature ceramics were investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Dielectric properties of MO-TeO2-V2O5 (M = Ca, Sr, Ba) ceramics and their chemical compatibility with an aluminum electrode were also studied. Introducing TeO2 to MO-V2O5 (M = Ca, Sr, Ba) ceramics obviously decreased the sintering temperature and promoted formation of M2V2O7 (M = Ca,...

Publication date: 10 March 2018 Source:Thermochimica Acta, Volume 661 Author(s): Amir Jangizehi, S. Reza Ghaffarian, Goolia Nikravan, Seifollah Jamalpour Thermal and viscoelastic properties of entangled supramolecular polymer networks, SPNs, depend strongly on binary and collective assembly of associative groups. The collective assemblies can phase separate from polymer matrix chains and form domains with different sizes and shapes, which have different melting point transitions. By increasing content of associative groups along the polymer chains, their high-order association leads to formation of domains, which have hig...

Publication date: 10 March 2018 Source:Thermochimica Acta, Volume 661 Author(s): Haibo Wang, Huiming Chen, Yue Ma, Hang Wang Rare earth elements are recently attracting more and more interests due to their dramatic effect as alloying elements. However the study regarding the phase equilibria between rare earth elements are still rare. The thermodynamically stable phases within the ∼50 at.%Y region have been investigated for the La-Y binary system using differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy in the present work. The samarium-type δ-LaY has been found...

Sekar This paper reports the fabrication of non-enzymatic acetylcholine (ACh) electrochemical sensor based on low energy nitrogen ion (100 keV) implanted tungsten trioxide (WO3) thin films modified indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode. The WO3 thin films deposited on ITO by spin coating technique was subjected to nitrogen ion implantation with the optimum fluence of 1 × 1015 ions/cm2. The implanted electrode was characterized by X-ray diffraction, field emission sca...

Sulaiman Basahel Layers of high silica zeolites, synthesized with an organic structure directing agent (OSDA) and grown onto porous support structures, frequently suffer from the thermal stress during the removal of OSDA via the calcination process. The different thermal expansion coefficients of the zeolite and the support material, especially when stainless steel is used as a support, causes enormous tension resulting in defect formation in the zeolite layer. However, the calcination is an easy procedure to decompose the OSDA in the pore system of the zeolite. Recently, methods to synthesize zeolite beta without the ...

CONCLUSIONS Where a serious, extensive fragment of patellar cartilage is found, the fixation of cartilage with the use of transosseous PDS sutures brings very good and good results, without the necessity of another surgery, while the simultaneous treatment of medial patellar retinacula considerably decreases the risk of patellar re-dislocation, thus reducing the risk of further damage to cartilage of patelofemoral joint. The use of transosseous suture fixation is considered by the authors to be more appropriate than the use of screws, mostly because no further surgery to remove fixation screws is necessary. Key words: acut...
