Leading international institutions are designing and developing various types of ventricular assist devices (VAD) and total artificial hearts (TAH). Some of the commercially available pulsatile VADs are not readily implantable into the thoracic cavity of smaller size patients because of size limitation. The majority of the TAH dimensions requires the(More)
Nuclear fragmentation measurements are necessary when using heavy-ion beams in hadrontherapy to predict the effects of the ion nuclear interactions within the human body. Moreover, they are also fundamental to validate and improve the Monte Carlo codes for their use in planning tumor treatments. Nowadays, a very limited set of carbon fragmentation cross(More)
PURPOSE Pressure flow technique on males is considered a standard diagnostic procedure to investigate the voiding process, while on female this is still under investigation. Many studies have been conducted in order to establish a female bladder outlet obstruction nomograms using a 7 Fr catheter, but recently a report showed that 7 Fr catheter may adversely(More)
OBJECTIVES Secondary ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction after failure of open and laparoscopic repair may be challenging to resolve due to possible extensive fibrosis and the increased invasiveness of this procedure. Alternatively, ureteroscopic laser endopyelotomy may be a more acceptable procedure for patients and surgeons. We report our preliminary(More)
A cheap and efficient diagnostic system for beam monitoring has been recently developed at INFN-LNS in Catania. It consists of a high sensitivity CCD camera detecting the light produced by an ion beam hitting the surface of a scintillating screen and a frame grabber for image acquisition. A scintillating screen, developed at INFN-LNS and consisting of a 2(More)

A characterization of wave-to-plasma interaction in a quasi-flat magnetostatic field at 3.75 GHz has been carried out by using a small-wire movable RF antenna, connected to a spectrum analyzer. The coupling between electromagnetic and electrostatic waves leads to a characteristic spectral emission in low frequency range and around the pumping wave(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the incidence of prostate cancer (PCa) in Sicily in patients who entered an early detection protocol. METHODS From February 2002 to February 2004, 16,298 subjects aged 40-75 entered the protocol. Patients with suspicious DRE, PSA>10 ng/ml, PSA<or=2.5 ng/ml, from 2.6 to 4 ng/ml or from 4.1 to 10 ng/ml with F/T PSA of <or=15%, <or=20%(More)
BACKGROUND Reduced glutathione (GSH) an antioxidant used for i.v. or i.m. administrations, prepared as powder to be diluted in distilled water just before injection (Tationil 600), could lose its antioxidant properties when added to various infusions currently utilized in anesthesia and reanimation. AIM OF THE WORK Evaluate in vitro the compatibility of(More)
