Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Composites Science and TechnologyAuthor(s): Jinxin Meng, Yong Wang, Haiyang Yang, Panding Wang, Qin Lei, Hanqiao Shi, Hongshuai Lei, Daining FangAbstractCarbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites with remarkable mechanical properties are widely used in aerospace crafts as load-bearing components. However, harsh environmental conditions challenge the security design of lightweight composite structures. In this work, the effects of cryogenic temperature from 77 K to 298 K and cryogenic stability after 50, 100 and 150 cycles on the mechanical properties and...

This study aimed to assess the role of MRI for predicting postoperative renal function by preoperative estimation of renal parenchymal volume and correlation with glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Materials and Methods A prospective observational study was conducted from February 2015 to October 2016 at a tertiary care hospital in northern India. MR imaging was done on 3 Tesla MR scanner (Signa Hdxt General Electrics, Milwaukee, USA). MR volumetry was used to estimate the renal parenchymal volume. GFR was measured in all patients using Tc99m Diethyl-triamine-penta-acetic acid using Russell ’ s algorithm. Such measure...

We report an elderly male who presented with cough and fever and had pulmonary infiltrates suspicious of tuberculosis. Bronchoalveolar lavage microbiology including XpertMTB/Rif assay was non-contributory. Contrast enhanced computed tomography scan of abdomen revealed multiple non-enhancing lesions in the spleen. Ultrasound guided splenic aspirate revealed pus that was positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in XpertMTB/Rif assay confirming the diagnosis of tuberculosis. PMID: 32072799 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts.

A 57-year-old female visited our hospital regarding an abnormal shadow in her mediastinum on a chest X-ray. Upon closer examinations, which included three-dimensional computed tomography, we diagnosed it as a SVC aneurysm. Since her SVC aneurysm was regarded as fusiform type at low risk of...

CONCLUSIONS: This is consistent with our premise that WLI results in abnormal lung function and reflects small airways dysfunction and suggests that we may be able to provide a more sensitive tool for evaluation of WLI suspected cases. PMID: 32074359 [PubMed - in process]
