PURPOSE Previous studies have demonstrated successful use of small intestinal submucosa (SIS) as a tube for replacing short segment (11 mm) proximal ureteral defects. However, such small segment ureteral defects could be managed by resection re-anastomosis. We evaluated the use of 1-layer SIS as a tube for the replacement of long segment ureteral defects.(More)
Metabolic acidosis can occur as a result of either the accumulation of endogenous acids or loss of bicarbonate from the gastrointestinal tract or the kidney, which represent common causes of metabolic acidosis. The appropriate treatment of acute metabolic acidosis has been very controversial. Ionized alkaline water was not evaluated in such groups of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has emerged as the major pathogen of liver disease worldwide. The aim of this study was to quantitate and evaluate the performance of HCV-NS4 antigen as an alternative approach for confirmation of viremia.

Purpose: The antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 200 isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, recovered from patients with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in the Sudan, was determined against the first-line antituberculosis drugs. Methods: Isolates were recovered from smear-positive sputum samples and confirmed biochemically and by PCR. Drug resistance of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of oxidized cellulose, Surgicel(TM) (Johnson & Johnson Medical, New Brunswick, NJ, USA) for patching defects in the tunica albuginea in a rabbit model, with a future application to correct chordee. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study comprised nine New Zealand white male rabbits; a rectangular 15 x 5-mm defect was created in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate and compare the relative contribution of different therapeutic agents for renoprotection against complete unilateral ureteric obstruction (UUO), using a rabbit model sampled at different times. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-four male New Zealand White rabbits were divided into seven groups of 12 rabbits; a sham group, a control (left(More)
Castration is one of the most common procedure. It is a potential source of mild to moderate pain which is enough to induce inflammatory process, necessitate the incorporation of analgesics. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of epidural bupivacaine alone or in association with fentanyl, ketamine or dexmedetomidine on analgesia for the first 24(More)
