The development and fabrication of mechanical devices powered by artificial molecular machines is one of the contemporary goals of nanoscience. Before this goal can be realized, however, we must learn how to control the coupling/uncoupling to the environment of individual switchable molecules, and also how to integrate these bistable molecules into(More)
BACKGROUND Solid pseudopapillary neoplasia (SPN) of the pancreas is an extremely rare epithelial tumor of low malignant potential. SPN accounts for less than 1% to 2% of exocrine pancreatic tumors. The aim of this study is to report our experience with SPN of the pancreas. It includes a summary of the current literature to provide a reference for the(More)
We report the synthesis of two [2]catenane-containing struts that are composed of a tetracationic cyclophane (TC(4+)) encircling a 1,5-dioxynaphthalene (DNP)-based crown ether, which bears two terphenylene arms. The TC(4+) rings comprise either 1) two bipyridinium (BIPY(2+)) units or 2) a BIPY(2+) and a diazapyrenium (DAP(2+)) unit. These degenerate and(More)
The ability of the diradical dicationic cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) (CBPQT(2(•+))) ring to form inclusion complexes with 1,1'-dialkyl-4,4'-bipyridinium radical cationic (BIPY(•+)) guests has been investigated mechanistically and quantitatively. Two BIPY(•+) radical cations, methyl viologen (MV(•+)) and a dibutynyl derivative (V(•+)), were investigated as(More)
BACKGROUND Entrapped anorectal foreign bodies are being encountered more frequently in clinical practice. Although entrapped foreign bodies are most often related to sexual behavior, they can also result from ingestion or sexual assault. METHODS Between 1999 and 2009, 15 patients with foreign bodies in the rectum were diagnosed and treated, at Izmir(More)
PURPOSE Appendectomy applied from the diagnosis of acute appendicitis is one the most common operations in surgery. The rates of negative appendectomy are still high. The rates of negative appendectomy in males and females differ and are higher in females. In our study, these differences, particularly in females, were studied and possible solutions were(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypertriglyceridaemia (HT)-induced pancreatitis rarely occurs unless triglyceride levels exceed 1000 mg/dl. Hypertriglyceridaemia over 1,000 mg/dl can provoke acute pancreatitis (AP) and its persistence can worsen the clinical outcome. In contrast, a rapid decrease in triglyceride level is beneficial. Insulin-stimulated lipoprotein lipase is(More)
INTRODUCTION Although all studies have reported that laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is a safe and effective treatment for acute cholecystitis, the optimal timing for the procedure is still the subject of some debate. AIM This retrospective analysis of a prospective database was aimed at comparing early with delayed LC for acute cholecystitis. (More)
