The innovative design and synthesis of membranes with silver incorporated surfaces open up new avenues for applied basic functions.
Background. We analyzed radical TUR-PCa against localized prostate cancer. Patients and Methods. Seventy-nine out of 209 patients with prostate cancer in one lobe were studied. Patients' age ranged from 58 to 91 years and preoperative PSA, 0.70 to 17.30 ng/mL. In other 16 additional patients we performed focal TUR-PCa. Patients' age ranged from 51 to 87… (More)
Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the lateral femoral condyle sometimes occurs with a discoid lateral meniscus. Recently, it was reported that OCD of the lateral femoral condyle occurred after total removal of the lateral meniscus. We report the case of a 12-year-old boy with bilateral OCD of the lateral femoral condyle following bilateral total removal… (More)

Hollow fiber membranes using Polyethersulfone (PES) were fabricated in-house using phase inversion technique by modification with synthesized charged-surface modifying macromolecules (cSMM). The cSMM comprise with end-group component of Hydroxybenzene sulfonate or Hydroxybenzene carboxylate. The electrical properties of the membranes were modeled by… (More)
OBJECTIVES Appropriate management of renal trauma is still controversial. Many of the patients have minor injuries and conservative treatment can achieve excellent outcomes without any complications. For major injuries of deep lacerations or ruptures, we have been performing early surgical treatment to salvage the kidney in the selected cases after the… (More)
