BACKGROUND. Laparoscopy and laparoscopic ultrasonography may assist in the more accurate staging of digestive cancers. We assessed the diagnostic value of staging laparoscopy in patients with cancers of lower esophagus, stomach, liver, biliary tract, pancreas and colon. MATERIAL AND METHOD. Extended staging laparoscopy, laparoscopic ultrasonography and(More)
Serum hyaluronic acid (sHA) is studied as a noninvasive marker of liver fibrosis (F) in chronic B and C viral hepatitis in general population but less in end-stage renal disease patients undergoing hemodialysis. We evaluated sHA as a noninvasive biomarker of F in a multicenter prospective, transversal, and observational study which included 52 end-stage(More)
BACKGROUND Hyaluronic acid (HA), ASAT to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI), ASAT/ALAT ratio, Fibrosis 4 score (FIB4) and FibroScan were studied as non-invasive markers of liver fibrosis (F) in chronic viral hepatitis B (CHB) and C (CHC), in an attempt to avoid the complications of liver puncture biopsy, considered the gold standard in the evaluation of F. The aim(More)
For a long time, treatment of peritoneal metastases (PM) was mostly palliative and thus, this status was link with "terminal status/despair". The current multimodal treatment strategy, consisting of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), has been strenuously achieved over time, but seems to be the best treatment(More)
Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) is an abdominal cancer for which cytoreductive surgery followed by hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) proved to be a promising treatment. HIPEC requires the intraperitoneal spread of cytostatic solution at high temperatures (41-43°C) accomplished within 60-120 minutes, during surgical interventions. This(More)
— Sign language is a mean of communication among the deaf people. Indian sign language is used by deaf for communication purpose in India. Here in this paper, we have proposed a system using Euclidean distance as a classification technique for recognition of various Signs of Indian sign Language. The system comprises of four parts: Image acquisition ,pre(More)
The paper presents an original approach for the cytostatic solution temperature modeling and control. In order to determine a mathematical model with high level of validity for the heating process, an original experimental identification procedure is applied, based on fractional-order operators. The main advantages of the resulted model are highlighted in(More)
This paper presents the design of a digital temperature controller for cytostatic solution used in hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC technique, i.e. Regional chemotherapy using cytostatic drugs at high temperatures of 42-43°C, represents a treatment technique for cancer patients suffering of peritoneal(More)
This paper presents an Internet based SCADA platform for monitoring the structures of a hydropower plant. The remote monitoring system communicates through TCP/IP sockets with the embedded gateway module interfacing the sensor network, facilitating configuration of the sensors, acquisition and archiving of the measurements, visualization of the data in(More)
