The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility, accuracy and diagnostic potential of combined static-excretory MR Urography in children with sonographically detected hydronephrosis. We prospectively evaluated 28 children (11 girls and 17 boys), mean age 8.3 years (range 2 months-16 years). Static-excretory MR Urography was performed in all cases.(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of portal vein thrombosis and arterioportal shunts on local tumor response in advanced cases of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma treated by transarterial chemoembolization. METHODS A retrospective study included 39 patients (mean age: 66.4 years, range: 45-79 years, SD: 7) with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)(More)
To study the feasibility of endovascular management of early hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) after living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and to clarify its role as a less invasive alternative to open surgery. A retrospective review of 360 recipients who underwent LDLT. Early HAT developed in 13 cases (3.6%). Diagnosis was performed using Doppler, CT(More)
Lignin is a major component of lignocellulosic biomass and as such, it is processed in enormous amounts in the pulp and paper industry worldwide. In such industry it mainly serves the purpose of a fuel to provide process steam and electricity, and to a minor extent to provide low grade heat for external purposes. Also from other biorefinery concepts,(More)
The objective of this paper is to evaluate and optimize the performance of 1 kW integrated heat exchanger module for new generations of air cooled heat exchangers. The first objective is to minimize the ratio of the header frontal area to the entire heat exchanger frontal which will help to reduce the header size. The second objective is to minimize the(More)
Commercial refrigeration systems are known to be prone to high leak rates and to consume large amounts of electricity. As such, both the direct emissions related to refrigerant leakage and the indirect emissions resulting from primary energy consumption contribute greatly to their Life Cycle Climate Performance (LCCP). In this paper, an LCCP design tool is(More)
The solubilities, densities and viscosities of lithium bromide (LiBr) + 1, 2-propanediol (HO-CH2-CHOH-CH3) aqueous solution (mass ratio of LiBr/HO-CH2-CHOH-CH3 = 3.5, 4.5 and 5.5) were measured in the mass fraction range from 0.30 to 0.75. Solubility measurements were performed by the visual method in the temperature range of (271.15 to 345.15) K. The(More)
Lignocellulosic biomass has emerged as a potentially attractive renewable energy source. Processing technologies of such biomass, particularly its primary separation, still lack economic justification due to intense energy requirements. Establishing an economically viable and energy efficient biorefinery scheme is a significant challenge. In this work, a(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim was to investigate the early changes that occur after graft perfusion in living-donor liver transplant by Doppler ultrasonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS We prospectively evaluated liver grafts of 30 patients who underwent living-donor liver transplant during an 18-month period and who were followed for 1 year postoperatively. The(More)
