Neoclassical transport simulation code (FORTEC-3D) applicable to non-axisymmetric configurations is developed. A new hybrid simulation model in which ion transport is solved by using the δ f Monte-Carlo method including the finite-orbit-width effects, while electron transport is solved by a reduced ripple-averaged kinetic equation, is adopted. This model(More)
BACKGROUND The level of intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (I-FABP) is considered to be useful diagnostic markers of small bowel ischemia. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate whether the serum I-FABP level is a predictive marker of strangulation in patients with small bowel obstruction (SBO). METHODS A total of 37 patients(More)
