Refractory ascites and graft dysfunction in early renal transplantation.

Discussion: Incomplete septal cirrhosis is an uncommon cause of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension. Its definition is not well known, morphological and pathophysiological. We have not found published cases of post-RT ascites secondary to this pathology, described as possibly associated with drugs, immune alterations, infections, hypercoagulability and genetic predisposition.

These green synthesized ZnO Nps were characterized using Fourier transform Infrared (FT-IR), powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), Field Emission Scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and UV–visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS-UV). FE-SEM and PXRD results revealed that these synthesi...

This study aimed to value all the possible variables related to the successful of laparoscopic procedures; in fact, we investigated not only the uterine weight, but in our multivariate analysis, the position of the fibroids, the trocar's setting, etc. were analysed. What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? This study reported novel data about the feasibility of laparoscopic hysterectomy for enlarged uteri. In opposition to the literature, the uterine weight is not a predictive value for laparotomic conversion. Moreover, we discussed the possible reasons of our novel finding...

In this paper, we describe a silk fibroin (SF)/heparin-functionalized bifurcated stent graft (BSG) using textile forming technology. The BSGs were prototyped based on seamless weaving technology, and the surface was modified with SF-loaded heparin under steam/air treat...

In this research, acidic leaching coupled with microwave and ultrasonic heating is integrated with oxidative precipitation and solvent extraction to reclaim and purify the metals in the cathode material of batteries. To optimize the l...
