Band gap engineering based on MgxZn1−xO and CdyZn1−yO ternary alloy films
We describe the structural and optical properties of II–VI oxide alloys, MgxZn1−xO and CdyZn1−yO, grown by pulsed-laser deposition. Single-phase alloyed films of (Mg,Zn)O and (Cd,Zn)O with c-axisExpand

Genomewide Expression Profiles of Rat Model Renal Isografts From Brain Dead Donors
Background. It has been well documented that two factors, brain death (BD) and ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, have distinct but overlapping adverse influences on the clinical outcome of renalExpand

Increased urinary neutrophil gelatinase associated lipocalin levels in a rat model of upper urinary tract infection.
PURPOSE Recurrent upper urinary tract infection is a common complication of vesicoureteral reflux that often leads to irreversible renal scarring. In our previous study of a rat model of renalExpand

Initial experience with a tailor-made simulation and navigation program using a 3-D printer model of kidney transplantation surgery.
INTRODUCTION Three-dimensional (3-D) printing systems allow for the creation of surgical models mimicking real tissue. We developed a kidney graft and pelvic cavity replica as a patient-specific 3-DExpand

Thermal stability of supersaturated MgxZn1−xO alloy films and MgxZn1−xO/ZnO heterointerfaces
We have examined the thermal stability of wurtzite-phase MgxZn1−xO alloy films and ZnO/MgxZn1−xO bilayer films with x exceeding the reported solubility limit of 0.04. When a Mg0.23Zn0.78O film wasExpand

Serum Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin as a Predictor of Organ Recovery from Delayed Graft Function after Kidney Transplantation from Donors after Cardiac Death
Because of a worldwide shortage of renal grafts, kidneys procured from donors after cardiac death (DCD) have recently become an important source of renal transplants. However, DCD kidneys often haveExpand

Urinary neutrophil-gelatinase associated lipocalin is a potential noninvasive marker for renal scarring in patients with vesicoureteral reflux.
PURPOSE Renal scarring is a serious complication that often occurs with chronic pyelonephritis in the presence of vesicoureteral reflux. In a previous study we established a rat model of renalExpand

Tyrosine kinase inhibitor‐induced vasculopathy in clear cell renal cell carcinoma: an unrecognized antitumour mechanism
To evaluate the pathological features of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), and to elucidate the mechanism of action of TKIs.

Robot‐assisted partial nephrectomy: Superiority over laparoscopic partial nephrectomy
Nephron‐sparing surgery has been proven to positively impact the postoperative quality of life for the treatment of small renal tumors, possibly leading to functional improvements. LaparoscopicExpand
