Vertically-oriented high aspect ratio titania nanotube bundles have been grown by a potentiostatic anodization of titanium sheet in fluoride-free electrolytes. The anodization conditions like the applied voltage were optimized for the synthesis of titania nanotubes in HClO4 and NaCl electrolyte. The resulting nanotubes have a length of about 30 microm, outer diameter about 40 nm, inner pore size of about 10 nm and the aspect ratio was 750:1 by anodization in 0.1 M perchloric acid of pH approximaately 1 at applied voltage of 20 V...

A 29-year-old man was admitted with abdominal pain. Peritonitis symptoms appeared on the day after of hospitalization and emeregency surgery was performed. A Meckel diverticulum adhered to the mesenterium of the sigmoid colon which was strangulated for a length of 30cm. Additionally, a second Meckel diverticulum was present on the oral side of the first one. The length of these were 3cm and 5cm, and the longer one caused the strangulation. The letter diverticulum contained a crab shell about 2cm in size, which was considered to be the cause of adhesion...

Orbital fractures are common in midface trauma. The aim of our study was the retrospective analysis of patients with eye injuries. According to a prospective protocol we studied 82% adults and 18% children with orbital fractures. Men compared 72% of the patients. Men aged 21-35 years the most affected (mean age 29 years). These patients were divided into two groups: these who was treated in Emergency Department of our Clinic in 1990-1991 years (group I) and these who was treated in 2000-2001 (group II). Patients were analysed for age, sex, cause of injury and types of orbital fracture...
