Plant salt tolerance can be improved by grafting onto salt-tolerant rootstocks. However, the underlying signaling mechanisms behind this phenomenon remain largely unknown. To address this issue, we used a range of physiological and molecular techniques to study responses of self-grafted and pumpkin-grafted cucumber plants exposed to 75 mM NaCl stress. Pumpkin grafting significantly increased the salt tolerance of cucumber plants, as revealed by higher plant dry weight, chlorophyll content and photochemical efficiency (Fv/Fm), and lower leaf Na+ content...

Purpose: Pathologic corneal (lymph) angiogenesis is a known risk factor for immune-mediated allograft rejections after corneal transplantation. However, there is no established treatment to regress pre-existing pathological corneal blood and lymphatic vessels. This study assessed the possibility to regress both vessel types by photodynamic therapy (PDT) after intravenous (i.v.) verteporfin injection, the influence of timing of PDT after verteporfin injection, and the effect on graft survival in high-risk keratoplasty...

Interbody fusion with posterior instrumentation is a common method for treating lumbar degenerative disc diseases. However, the high rigidity of the fusion construct may produce abnormal stresses at the adjacent segment and lead to adjacent segment degeneration (ASD). As such, biodegradable implants are becoming more popular for use in orthopaedic surgery. These implants offer sufficient stability for fusion but at a reduced stiffness. Tailored to degrade over a specific timeframe, biodegradable implants could potentially mitigate the drawbacks of conventional stiff constructs and reduce the loading on adjacent segments...

Injuries to flexor tendons in zone I has always been challenging during repair. Over the time several techniques were developed and modified to achieve the highest repair strength and thus the best functional outcome. These techniques vary from pull-out sutures with internal and external fixation to the use of bone anchors. All techniques were accompanied with advantages and disadvantages as well as postoperative morbidities related to certain techniques. In the present technique we introduce a subperiosteal pull-out suturing technique...

Impaction bone grafting is a method of restoring bone stock to patients suffering significant bone loss due to revision total hip surgery. The procedure requires morselised bone (MB) to be impacted into the site of bone loss in order to stabilise the prosthesis with the aim of the long term resorption and reintegration of the impacted bone graft. Currently, the method for producing MB requires the use of expensive surgical bone mills or manually-intensive rongeurs that can produce a limited variety of particle sizes and may have a low throughput...

Impaction bone grafting is a method of restoring bone stock to patients who have suffered significant bone loss due to revision total hip surgery. The procedure requires morsellised cancellous bone (MCB) to be impacted into the site of bone loss in order to stabilise the prosthesis with the aim of long term resorption and reintegration of the impacted bone graft. Due to financial cost and the potential to transmit disease, the use of supplementary material, known as an extender, is frequently used to increase the graft material volume...

Reconstruction of the anophthalmic socket allows the use of an ocular prosthesis and rehabilitation of facial appearance. Dermis-fat grafting is one option in volume augmentation of the anophthalmic socket and presents unique benefits, including increased surface area within the socket and the ability to grow with pediatric patients. Postoperative complications of this procedure are relatively common. Minor complications, such as graft hirsutism, keratinization, and conjunctival cysts or granulomas, are managed easily by observation or simple intervention...

The dendrimer polyamidoamine (PAMAM) has been widely applied in environmental applications as adsorbents for wastewater treatment. In this work, molecular dynamics simulations are conducted to understand the effect of dendrimer grafted graphene and graphene oxide on the structural and dynamical properties of Pb2+ ion. The adsorption capacity of the metal ion is improved significantly, over 60%, using carboxyl terminal groups of dendrimer molecule grafted on graphene oxide surface. We examine the self-diffusion coefficient and residence time of Pb2+ ion near graphene and graphene oxide surfaces grafted with PAMAM dendrimers using terminal groups, -COO- and -OH...

INTRODUCTION: For dorsal onlay graft placement, unilateral urethral mobilization is less invasive than standard circumferential urethral mobilization. Apart from success in terms of patency of urethra, other issues like sexual function, overall quality of life and patient satisfaction remain important issues while comparing outcomes of urethroplasty. AIM: To prospectively compare the objective as well as subjective outcomes of two approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between July 2011 and January 2015, 136 adult males having anterior urethral stricture with urethral lumen ≥ 6 Fr...

Split liver transplantation (SLT) has been perceived as an important strategy to increase the supply of liver grafts by creating 2 transplants from 1 allograft. The Eurotransplant allocation system (ELAS) envisages that the ERLs after splitting (usually in the pediatric center) are almost exclusively shipped to a second center. Whether the ELAS policy impacts the graft and patient survival of ERLT in comparison to WLT recipients remains unclear. Data on all LTs performed between 2007 and 2013 were retrieved from the ET Liver follow-up Registry (n=5351)...

The enzyme type 1 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17β-HSD-1), responsible for generating active 17β-estradiol (E2) from low-active estrone (E1), is over-expressed in endometrial cancer (EC) thus implicating an increased intra-tissue generation of E2 in this estrogen-dependent condition. In this study we explored the possibility of inhibiting 17β-HSD-1 and impairing the generation of E2 from E1 in EC using in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo models. We generated EC cell lines derived from the well-differentiated endometrial adenocarcinoma Ishikawa cell line and expressing levels of 17β-HSD-1 similar to human tissues...
