Highly cross-linked polyethylene (HXLPE) hip liners grafted with 2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) on their bearing surfaces have recently been commercialized as components of a new generation of artificial hip joints, while improvements in wear resistance and biocompatibility were reported based on in vitro studies. The present study aimed at evaluating the surface modification and oxidative degradation in short-term retrieved MPC-grafted liners by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) with attenuated total reflection (ATR) equipment and Raman spectroscopy...

A highly porous metal-organic framework (MOF), MIL-101, was modified for the first time with the nucleobase adenine (Ade) by grafting onto the MOF. The Ade-grafted MOF, Ade-MIL-101, was further protonated to obtain P-Ade-MIL-101, and these MOFs were utilized to remove nitrogen-containing compounds (NCCs) (such as indole (IND) and quinoline (QUI)) from a model fuel by adsorption. These functionalized MOFs exhibited remarkable adsorption performance for NCCs compared with that shown by commercial activated carbon (AC) and pristine MIL-101, even though the porosities of the functionalized-MOFs were lower than that of pristine MIL-101...

We present our surgical strategy in a patient with a bicuspid aortic valve Type I (R/N), aortic root aneurysm and papillary fibroelastoma on the aortic valve's cusp. He underwent valve-sparing aortic root replacement (David V Procedure); we also removed the papillary fibroelastoma from the fused right- and non-coronary cusp. In this case, we used a 34-mm straight Dacron graft for root replacement and an aortic annulus downsized to 30 mm. We use Hegar dilatators for the intraoperative measurement of the aortic annulus...

Modification of the lower lateral cartilage complex is the sine qua non of modern rhinoplasty, and the open approach to rhinoplasty has expanded the number of techniques available to help achieve an aesthetically pleasing tip. The ideal tip has been described as having a diamond-shaped configuration, with the lateral points formed by the tip-defining points, the superior point by the supratip, and the inferior point by the columellar break point. Over the years, various techniques have been described to minimize isolation of the tip and to help achieve the ideal tip configuration: lateral crural strut grafts, alar contour grafts (i...

BACKGROUND: Anterior glenohumeral instability is frequently associated with anteroinferior glenoid bone defects. One original technique has been described in the literature that incorporates a J-shaped graft from the iliac crest into the anterior glenoid rim. The main goal of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility of harvesting a J-shaped graft from the acromion that corresponds to previously described dimensions. The secondary goal was to determine the ideal harvesting site...

INTRODUCTION: The unilateral cleft lip nose is characterized by numerous complex and interdependent deformities. Secondary rhinoplasty techniques aim to correct cleft lip nose deformities by using multiple maneuvers combining septum and nasal spine medialization and alar cartilage, as well as soft tissue mobilization and repositioning. Moreover, cartilage grafting is frequently used to restore adequate tip projection and nasal symmetry. We present a technique of cartilage grafting commonly used in noncleft rhinoplasties that we modified for cases of moderate cleft lip nose deformities...

Labile ligands such as thiols and carboxylates are commonly used to functionalize AuNPs, though little control over the composition is possible when mixtures of ligands are used. It was shown recently that robustly functionalized AuNPs can be obtained through the reductive grafting of calix[4]arenes bearing diazonium groups on the large rim. Here, we report a calix[4]arene-tetradiazonium decorated by four oligo(ethylene glycol) chains on the small rim, which upon grafting gave AuNPs with excellent stability thanks to the C-Au bonds...

This article describes our surgical technique for subperiosteal midface elevation in patients with paralytic lower eyelid malposition or cicatricial inferior eyelid retraction. Nineteen patients with paralytic lower eyelid malposition and 15 patients with cicatricial inferior eyelid retraction underwent a subperiosteal midface lift (n = 34). The procedure was performed under local anesthesia through three nonvisible incisions. A transconjunctival incision allows preseptal dissection to the orbital rim, followed by a subperiosteal dissection of the midface...

Liver ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury is inevitable in surgical procedures such as hepatic resection and liver transplantation. It represents a leading cause of liver graft dysfunction and primary non function after transplantation. Phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors are emerging as effective drugs able to reduce IR damage. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of selective PDE-3 inhibitor olprinone (Olp) against liver IR injury. Male Wistar rats were subjected to one hour of partial warm ischemia (70%) followed by six hours of reperfusion...
