Article
The availability of natural calcium derived from biowaste materials is an inexpensive alternative to commercial calcium reagents used to produce calcium phosphate bioceramics. This approach is more ecofriendly, cost effective and sustainable owing to its abundant availability. In this study, zinc-substituted hydroxyapatite (ZnHA-Es) was synthesised...

Background & Objectives: Healthcare-associated Meningitis and/or Ventriculitis (HCAMV) is a serious yet frequent complication following neurosurgery. In this study, the clinical outcomes of HCAMV, risk factors associated with the clinical outcome, etiological agents and their corresponding antibiogram were investigated. Methods: All HCAMV patients...

In the present work, the eggshell-derived hydroxyapatite (HA) powder was successfully synthesized by a simple wet chemical method assisted by microwave irradiation. Different pH values (8, 9, 10, 11 and 12) has been investigated in order to determine their effect on the HA properties. The derived powders were characterized by XRD, FTIR, FESEM and E...

Ionic substituted calcium phosphates have received much attention for their use as implant materials because of their ability to mimic natural hard tissues. In this work, the properties of hydroxyapatite ceramic doped with small amounts of zinc ions (5, 10, and 15 mol%) by using a wet chemical precipitation route were studied. XRD spectra revealed...

Exophytic lesions involving the face present with an undesirable esthetic deformity and usually necessitate surgical excision. Conventional open excision techniques may lead to scar formation or pigmentation issues postoperatively. Minimally invasive endoscope-assisted surgery will be able to overcome these problems. However, this technique is not...

Although acupuncture has existed for over 2000 years, its application as an anesthetic aid began in the 1950’s in China [Bonica, JAMA 1974; 229(10): 1317-25]. The first surgical procedure performed under acupuncture anesthesia was a tonsillectomy. Soon thereafter, major and minor surgical procedures took place with electroacupuncture alone providin...
