Laparoscopic splenic cyst fenestration—a viable spleen preserving option

Cystic lesions of the spleen are a rare encounter in surgical practice and are broadly split into two categories: true and false, depending upon the presence of a defined epithelial lining. True cysts can further be broken down into parasitic and non-parasitic origins while false or pseudocysts tend to develop commonly after a traumatic event. We present here a 23-year-old female...

Acidic and enzymatic saccharification of waste agricultural biomass for biotechnological production of xylitol

Background The plant biomass and agro-industrial wastes show great potential for their use as attractive low cost substrates in biotechnological processes. Wheat straw and corn cob as hemicellulosic substrates were acid hydrolyzed and enzymatically saccharified for high xylose production. The hydrolysate was concentrated and fermented by using Saccharomyces cerevisiae and...

A Component-Based Study of the Effect of Diameter on Bond and Anchorage Characteristics of Blind-Bolted Connections

Structural hollow sections are gaining worldwide importance due to their structural and architectural advantages over open steel sections. The only obstacle to their use is their connection with other structural members. To overcome the obstacle of tightening the bolt from one side has given birth to the concept of blind bolts. Blind bolts, being the practical solution to the...

Renal Type A Intercalated Cells Contain Albumin in Organelles with Aldosterone-Regulated Abundance

Albumin has been identified in preparations of renal distal tubules and collecting ducts by mass spectrometry. This study aimed to establish whether albumin was a contaminant in those studies or actually present in the tubular cells, and if so, identify the albumin containing cells and commence exploration of the origin of the intracellular albumin. In addition to the expected...

Potential of KMnO4 and H2O2 in treating semi-aerobic landfill leachate

Treatment of recalcitrant landfill leachate was carried out using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and potassium permanganate (KMnO4). The treatment performance was reported in terms of colour, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammoniacal nitrogen (NH4-N). The effect of oxidant dosages and pH was determined and optimum conditions were determined considering the removal of parameters of...

Use of Tranexamic acid is a cost effective method in preventing blood loss during and after total knee replacement

Background & Purpose Allogenic blood transfusion in elective orthopaedic surgery is best avoided owing to its associated risks. Total knee replacement often requires blood transfusion, more so when bilateral surgery is performed. Many strategies are currently being employed to reduce the amount of peri-operative allogenic transfusions. Anti-fibrinolytic compounds such as...

Matrix Metalloproteinase 1: Role in Sarcoma Biology

In carcinomas stromal cells participate in cancer progression by producing proteases such as MMPs. The expression MMP1 is a prognostic factor in human chondrosarcoma, however the role in tumor progression is unknown. Laser capture microdissection and In Situ hybridization were used to determine cellular origin of MMP1 in human sarcomas. A xenogenic model of tumor progression was...
