A number of theories that describe the behavior of liquid-liquid interfaces have been developed and applied to various dispersed systems, e.g., Stokes, Reiner-Rivelin, Ericksen, Einstein, Smoluchowski, and Kinch. A new theory of electroviscoelasticity describes the behavior of electrified liquid-liquid interfaces in fine dispersed systems and is based on a(More)
Theoretical model describing the mechanism of droplet formation and structure of hollow TiO2 spheres prepared by the process of ultrasonic spray pyrolysis, using colloidal solution consisting of the 2.5-nm TiO2 nanoparticles as a precursor, is developed. The proposed model quantitatively defines each line in the size distribution spectrum. The mechanism of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Staging of bladder cancer is crucial for optimal management of the disease. However, clinical staging is not perfectly accurate. The aim of this study was to derive a simple scoring system in prediction of pathological advanced muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). METHODS Logistic regression and bootstrap methods were used to create an(More)
This research focuses on the modeling of the liquid-liquid dispersed system, including particular insight on the electrocoalescence (EC) process that occurs during the breaking of double emulsions. The representative system, used in this work, was taken from the pilot plant for solvent extraction of uranium from wet phosphoric acid. The chosen framework(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Radical cystectomy is the method of choice for the treatment of muscle invasive bladder cancer. This major surgery is associated with many complications, especially in older patients. The aim of this study was to analyze preoperative comorbidity, and intraoperative and postoperative complicatons in patients older than 75 years. METHODS This(More)
A new idea has been applied for the elucidation of the electron and momentum transfer phenomena, at both rigid and deformable interfaces, in finely (micro-, nano-, atto-) dispersed systems. The electroviscoelastic behavior of, e.g., liquid/liquid interfaces (emulsions and double emulsions), is based on three forms of "instabilities"; these are rigid,(More)
INTRODUCTION Aggressive fibromatosis (AF) is a heterogeneous group of mesenchymal tumors that have locally infiltrative growth and a tendency to relapse. The clinical picture is often conditioned by the obstruction of the ureter or small intestine. Diagnosis is based on clinical, radiological and histological parameters. A CASE REPORT We report a case of(More)
The recent development in basic and applied science and engineering of finely dispersed systems is presented in general, but more attention has been paid to the liquid-liquid finely dispersed systems or to the particular emulsions and double emulsions. The selected systems for theoretical and experimental research were emulsions and double emulsions that(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The therapy with intravesical instillation of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) after transurethral resection (ITJR) of the tumor is the gold standard of treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The aim of this study was to compare the frequencies of reccurence between a group of patients submitted to TUR + BCG therapy (group I)(More)
