With increase of multi-drug resistant Escherichia coli in community-acquired urinary tract infections (CA-UTI), other treatment option with a therapeutic efficacy and a low antibiotic selective pressure is necessary. In this study, we evaluated in vitro susceptibility of E. coli isolates from CA-UTI to fosfomycin (FM), nitrofurantoin (NI), temocillin (TMO)(More)
In this study, we replaced the expensive blade material with an aluminum-bronze alloy that has excellent corrosion resistance and cavitation characteristics and developed the corrosion protection method to improve durability using an electrochemical method. The objective of this study was to identify the electrochemical corrosion protection conditions to(More)
Al alloy is a highly active metal but forms a protective oxide film having high corrosion resistance in atmosphere environment. However, the oxide film is not suitable for practical use, since the thickness of the film is not uniform and it is severly altered with formation conditions. This study focused on developing an aluminum anodizing layer having(More)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of multiple mechanical forces in hemolysis for usage as intravascular lung assist device. Specific attention was focused on the effect of membrane vibration. The results of experimental, PZT materials were used as an exciting system to improve efficiency of blood suitability of hollow fiber membrane(More)
An artificial implantable lung would be a useful device to support ARDS patients awaiting lung transplantation. In this study, the characteristic of fluid flow in the new type lung assist devices has been established using CFD. According to the modeling, it is believed that the tangential type module would be more beneficial to the fluid flow, and 2 ports(More)
This study was performed to make comparative analysis of the clinical findings between the two different types of the implant-assisted removable partial dentures: removable partial dentures using implant surveyed bridge as an abutment (ISBRPD) and overdenture type of removable partial denture using implant attachment (IARPD). Implant cumulative survival(More)
In this study, we have used computational fluid dynamics to investigate the blood flow in the stenosed blood vessels. The numerical simulation using commercial software ADINA 8.6 were solved about the stenosed blood vessel according to the percent of stenosis and Reynolds number. The blood flow in the normal and stenosed blood vessel was grasped for the(More)
In this study, aluminum titanium nitride (AlTiN) coating was deposited by arc ion plating onto mirror finish STS 304 plate. The surface and cross-section of the coating was characterized by SEM and EDX analysis. Several electrochemical corrosion experiments were performed including rest potential measurement, potentiodynamic polarization experiment and(More)
