Pulsed light (PL) is a non-thermal preservation method in which foods are subjected to one or several intense pulses of wide-spectrum light. Peroxidase (POD) is an enzyme that needs to be inactivated or inhibited because of its deleterious effects on the quality of fruits and vegetables. The feasibility of using PL to inactivate POD was tested and results explained based on measurements of UV-vis spectrum, far-UV circular dichroism and tryptophan fluorescence, and the phase-diagram method. PL reduced the activity of POD by more than 95% after applying 128Jcm(-2)...

AIM: Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) guided prostete biopsy is accepted as a standard procedure in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Many different protocoles are applied to reduce the pain during the process. In this study we aimed to the comparison of two procedure with intrarectal lidocaine gel and periprostatice nerve blockade respective- ly in addition to perianal intrarectal lidocaine gel on the pain control in prostate biop- sy by TRUS. METHODS: 473 patients who underwent prostate biopsy guided TRUS between 2008-2012 were included in the study...

Aortic dissection (AD) in patient with prostetic aortic valve is a rare but potentially fatal complication. Predictors of the occurrence of AD after aortic valve replacement (AVR) include fragility and thinning of the ascending aorta, aortic dilatation, aortic regurgitation (AR) and high blood pressure before AVR operation. AD is usually symptomatic, but rarely asymptomatic.We presented a case of asymptomatic AD seen in routine echocardiographic examination at 15 years after the AVR surgery.

BACKGROUND: Along the past few years the number of papers on heterotopic cardiac transplant has been very scarce in the medical literature, including at the international level; this is particularly true in reference to the long term follow-up of these patients and the reason which led to the presentation of our report. OBJECTIVE: To report the initial clinical experience and late evolution of 4 patients undergoing heterotopic heart transplantation, indications for this procedure and its major complications...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the dental plaque formed on natural teeth surfaces by optic and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), to quantify the microbial density by viable cell counts, to identify the recovered microbial strains, the antibiotic susceptibility testing and their pathogenicity features (i.e. adherence and invasion capacity on HeLa cells, adherence on prostetic substrata used in oral medicine by original experimental models, production of extracellular enzymes and exotoxins)...

The aim of this paper is to present the post mortem dental evidence and dental health of the victims interred during 1999 in five grave pits at Batajnica near Belgrade. The investigated sample comprised 32 individuals with only maxillae preserved, 80 with mandible, and 260 individuals with both jaws. We have found high degree of enamel hypoplasia (25.89%), frequent signs of the severe forms of periodontal disease (18.55%), very high percent of antemortem tooth loss (31.48%), and evidence of edentate jaws in an early age of individuals...

Autotransplantation of premolars to the anterior region subsequent to tooth loss represent a unique treatment method that has a number of advantages in comparison with other tooth substitution methods. A tooth transplant has a bone inducing capacity implying that lost labial bone is regenerated. Secondly the tooth precipitates growth of the alveolar procces and allows treatment to be performed at an early age (10-12 years) where the trauma incidence is at its maximum. Finally transplanted teeth can be moved orthodontically...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Nocturia often occures in patients with benign prostata hyperplasia (BPH). The aim of the study was to investigate the frequency of nocturia in patients with BPH. Nocturia and other factors associated with it were also investigated. METHODS: Forty patients with the confirmed diagnosis of BPH were studied. Transurethral and transvesical prostatectomy were performed in all the patients. Simptoms were evaluated with the International Prostete Sypmtom Score before, as well as three and six months after the surgery...

A late inflammatory reaction and the formation of fistula after prostetic implant for primitive hernia of the abdominal wall are recent clinical events. The Authors describe a case of inguinal cutaneous fistula verified after 6 years from the execution of an prostetic hernioplasty with polypropylene. The possible etiology and the therapeutic options are discussed.

OBJECTIVES: To determine the accuracy of two main radiologic tools currently employed in the clinical management of anorectal malformations, the invertogram and the distal colostogram. The data will be useful as a basis for quality assurance as well as for future comparisons in case there are innovations to be considered. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Radiological materials and clinical records of infants with anorectal malformations operated on in Songklanagarind Hospital from 1995 to 2001 were retrieved...

Lipoic acid is a prostetic group of H-protein of the glycine cleavage system and the dihydrolipoamide acyltransferases (E2) of the pyruvate, alpha-ketoglutarate and branched-chain alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase complexes. Lipoic acid and its reduced form, dihydrolipoic acid, reacts with oxygen reactive species. This paper reviews the beneficial effects in oxidative stress models or clinical conditions.

Activity of the enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) and polyphenol oxidase (PPO) as well as Cu-Zn content have been monitored during the thirteen weeks growth of both Gordal and Manzanilla olive variety fruits. These metalloenzymes, with Cu and Zn in the prostetic group, are involved in controlling the redox balance in the chloroplast environment. The results indicated that, under similar phenological and environmental conditions, there are periodic peaks of SOD activity in both varieties, followed by fluctuations in the copper content of the fruit...

OBJECTIVE: To describe RMI aspects of leg stump neuroma and to evaluate RMI scan interest for neuroma diagnosis and management. POPULATION AND METHOD: During a 2 years period, 224 amputated patients consulting for pain or prostetics problems were studied. In 10 cases, a characteristic pain leads to neurona diagnosis. This is described as a sensation of ascending or descending electric shock induced by the stimulation of an identified point with a reproducible topography...

An aortic arch graft replacement was successfully performed for a true aneurysm on the distal aortic arch. However, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) mediastinitis occurred after surgery. Following reoperation for debridement and irrigation of the mediastinal space, antibiotics were administered and continuous irrigation of mediastinal space with saline containing appropriate antibiotics and intermittently short duration irrigation with a large quantity of saline containing popidone-iodine were carried out with good results...

The mechanism by which phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL, EC catalyzes the reversible elimination of ammonia from phenylalanine yielding (E)-cinnamic acid has gained much attention in the recent years. Dehydroalanine is essential for the catalysis. It was assumed that this prostetic group acts as the electrophile, leading to a covalently bonded enzyme-intermediate complex with quarternary nitrogen of phenylalanine. Recently, an alternative mechanism has been suggested in which the enzyme-intermediate complex is formed in a Friedel-Crafts reaction between dehydroalanine and orthocarbon of the aromatic ring...

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a disorder in which the retroperitoneal fat is the site of a subacute and chronic inflammatory reaction and is subsequently replaced by dense fibrotic tissue. Rheumatoid nodules are chronic granulomata occurring at sites of pressure and movement, both near the body surface and internally. A 55-year-old sales-manager was admitted to radiation synovectomy after a 5 year history of excessive right and left knee effusions. There were no other clinical or laboratory abnormalities. The patient did not respond to either radioisotope synoviorthesis using radioactive Yttrium (90 Y), or to open synovectomy and prostetic surgery of the right knee...

Van Nes rotation plasty was done in 5 children with congenital proximal femoral focal deficiency. Mean age at the operation was 8.7 years (range 38 months-16 years), mean follow-up was 16 months (6-30 months). In 3 children full rotation at the level of knee joint was done; in 2 cases additional rotation at the level of tibial shaft was necessary. No neural and vascular complications were observed. In all children the ankle is at the level of the knee of normal extremity. The range of flexion of the prostetic knee is between 70 degrees and 90 degrees...
