Ultrasonic-assisted fabrication of thin-film electrochemical detector of H2O2 based on ferrocene-functionalized silver cluster.

Ultrasonic-assisted fabrication of thin-film electrochemical detector of H2O2 based on ferrocene-functionalized silver cluster. Ultrason Sonochem. 2019 Sep;56:305-312 Authors: Liu KG, Rouhani F, Shan QD, Wang R, Li J, Hu ML, Cheng X, Morsali A Abstract A novel ferrocene-functionalized silver cluster (FcAgCs) has been designed and synthesized with the assistant of ultrasound treatment and fully characterized by single crystal spectroscopy, IR, UV-Vis, XRD, TGA, NMR, CV and elemental analyses. Ultrasound synthesis method facilitates and accelerates synthesis of this amazing structure and plays a vital role in the synthesis of this special cluster. Single-crystal X-ray analysis reveal that the cluster can be described as a cationic [(dppf)2Ag4(CCtBu)2(CH3OH)2]2+ (dppf = 1,1'-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene) species consisted of four rhombic silver atom and two isolated BF4- counter anions. Thermal stability greater than 200 °C and solution CV results show that the title cluster is sufficiently stable and suitable for the fabricating of FcAgCs/ITO thin-films and exploring as electrochemical responding materials. Based on its properties, we use it to prepare thin-films on ITO substrate by spin coating method. Verification of synthesis, thickness, uniformity and stability of the fabricated FcAgCs/ITO thin-films were characterized and confirmed by UV, XRD, SEM and the scotch tape adhesion peel test. Moreover, we use this FcAgCs/ITO thin-film electrode...

This study was designed to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients with nutcracker syndrome (NCS) who were treated with three-dimensional printing (3DP) extravascular titanium stents (EVTSs). The 3DP EVTS was expected to release the hypertension of the left renal vein (LRV) produced by its compression between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta without causing any complications. METHOD: The pre-operative kidney model of each patient was printed out to enable surgical planning. After that, the EVTS was designed based on the LRV's primitive physiologic structure using computer-aided de...

We describe a 63-year-old woman with signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension. Brain MRI revealed hydrocephalus. Venous Doppler ultrasound showed external compression of the omohyoid muscles on the internal jugular veins. During jugular vein decompression, intracranial pressure dropped from 18 to 6  mmHg. Patient is asymptomatic at 2-year follow-up, with decreased brain ventricles. These findings could represent a novel form of high-pressure hydrocephalus that can be successfully treated without a CSF shunt. We called this syndrome JEDI (jugular entrapment dilated ventricles intracranial hype rtension).

This study aimed to evaluate the antimicrobial activities of EOs of cinnamon (CEO), rosemary (REO), and oregano (OEO) EOs encapsulated in oil-in-water nanoemulsions prepared using high-frequency ultrasound and applied onto fresh celery inoculated with Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes. The characteristics of CEO, REO, and OEO nanoemulsions were: pH, 4.69–5.84; viscosity, 1.844–1993 mPa s; density, 1.004–1.018 g/cm3; color parameters, Lh > 80 (ah: negative and bh: positive); particle size (D50) 226–546 nm; phase separation, 80%. Compared with the nonencapsulated EOs, EOs nano...

CONCLUSIONS: CPET may greatly facilitate the diagnosis of unexplained dyspnoea. More than 50% of the dyspnoea cases examined here were due to deconditioning or hyperventilation syndrome and would benefit from a simple pulmonary rehabilitation program.

ConclusionOur findings suggest that there is a need of multidisciplinary discussion and genetic testing after unexpected cardiac death in the young. We have to be more flexible in our evaluation of diseases and to consider even uncommon diseases including rare recessive inherited disorders. Our findings also suggest that the autosomal recessive PGM1-CDG might be highly associated with life-threatening cardiomyopathy with arrhythmia or sudden cardiac death as the first symptom presenting from childhood and adolescence.

Authors: Mander A, Venosi S, Menegatti E, Lee BB, Neuhardt D, Maietti E, Gianesini S Abstract BACKGROUND: Ultrasound investigation potentials in lymphedema are still to be fully used in everyday practice. Aim of the present study is to report the sonographic characterization of the dermo-epidermal complex (DEC) and of the subcutaneous (SUBC) tissue, assessing the feasibility of a related mapping, in upper limb secondary lymphedema,. METHODS: In this retrospective study 287 patients affected by monolateral upper limb post- mastectomy lymphedema (M5/F282; mean age 64±4.24) were enrolled and scanned by ultr...
