Transportation is rapidly evolving all around the world to meet the mandatory emission regulations and to find alternative solutions for high fossil fuel prices. Electrically propelled vehicles are one of the most promising solutions among all alternatives offered in terms of reliability, availability, feasibility, and safety. . Transportation(More)
OBJECTIVE This study tests whether sialic acid is a mediator of the lung injury following lower extremity ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). Design. Prospective randomised study. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one Sprague-Dawley rats were randomised into four groups: group 1, aorta was exposed but not clamped; group 2, aorta clamped for 3 h, followed by 1 h of(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary collaterals may be insufficient for restoring blood flow to normal levels in patients with chronic total occlusions (CTO), leading to myocardial ischemia and electrical inhomogeneity in the ventricles. We evaluated the effect of percutaneous CTO revascularization on parameters of ventricular repolarization, including the T wave(More)
Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) approach was used to optimize the size of the vehicle powertrain components (e.g. engine power, electric motor power, battery energy capacity) while meeting the critical performance requirements, improving fuel efficiency, and obtaining cost effectiveness for a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Compared with(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the estrogen dermatitis of women who have chronic skin disorders with exacerbations or premenstrual dermatitis in a cyclic pattern. Twenty-three women exhibiting skin disorders of pruritus, urticaria, eczema, papulovesicular eruption, hirsutism-acne with hyperpigmentation (hirsutism and/or its related disorders(More)
Behcet's disease (BD) is a multisystemic inflammatory disorder of unknown origin, presenting with mucocutaneous, ocular, articular, vascular, gastrointestinal and central nervous system manifestations. Coronary involvement is very rare in patients with BD. Sildenafil, an oral drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, was shown to cause significant(More)
Preprocedural high-thrombus burden (HTB) of infarct-related artery (IRA) is a harbinger of procedural complications following primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The HTB of IRA can lead to poor outcomes by various mechanisms, including no-reflow phenomenon, increased myocardial(More)
Pedunculated lipofibroma is a relatively rare form of nevus lipomatosus superficialis. The lesions are large, slow growing, pedunculated tumors. Histologically, groups and strands of fat cells are found embedded among the collagen bundles of the dermis. We presented a woman diagnosed with a pedunculated lipofibroma clinically and histopathologically.
Adult T cell leukemia/lymphomas are aggressive disorders, which infiltrate not only the bone marrow but extensively the visceral organs as well. A case with left ventricular systolic dysfunction with myocardial infiltration and massive pericardial effusion which was demonstrated with echocardiography is discussed. The patient responded well to pericardial(More)
