Objective: Our study aimed to evaluate the success rate of ESWL and identify relevant treatment-specific factors affecting treatment outcomes, as well as to assess the accuracy of the updated Triple D scoring system and compare it with older systems. Material and Methods: A prospective study of 71 patients who received ESWL treatment for renal ston...

Significance: Pancreatic surgery is a highly demanding and routinely applied procedure for the treatment of several pancreatic lesions. The outcome of patients with malignant entities crucially depends on the margin resection status of the tumor. Frozen section analysis for intraoperative evaluation of tissue is still time consuming and laborious....

Surgical treatment is widely applied curative approach for bladder cancer. White light cystoscopy (WLC) is currently used for intraoperative diagnostics of malignant lesions but has relatively high false-negative rate. Here we represent an application of label free fiber-based attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy (ATR IR) for freshly r...

Background The introduction of the holmium laser for lithotripsy and minimally invasive techniques in endoscopy increased the popularity of stone dusting techniques. Retrieving stone pieces for an analysis increases the economic burden of surgery and operative time. Novel methods are needed for the analysis of convenient urolithiasis composition....

β-glucans are known as biological response modifiers. However, different sources can result in structural differences and as a result differences in their biological activity. The hot water extraction method allows to obtain, high molecular weight β-glucans without altering their structure by using strong chemicals, such as alkalis or acids. Analys...
Article
Objectives The aim of this study was to construct an experimental model replicating blood flow within human superior vena cava and to determine the degree of the immediate aspiration of the drug introduced via central venous catheter through the distally positioned dialysis catheter. Methods A model replicating superior vena cava was built, cathet...
Article
We present the infrared spectroscopy study of three types of human healthy and cancerous tissues using standard ATR and fiber optics based ATR techniques. The use of fiber based ATR probes eliminates the need to bring the sample under the study to the spectroscopic instrument and opens the path for the application of infrared spectroscopy for the s...

More than 90% of solid kidney tumors are cancerous and have to be treated by surgical resection where surgical outcomes and patient prognosis are dependent on the tumor discrimination. The development of alternative approaches based on a new generation of fiber attenuated total reflection (ATR) probes could aid tumor identification even under intra...
Article
Herein, a technique to analyze air-dried kidney tissue impression smears by means of Attenuated Total Reflection Infrared (ATR-IR) spectroscopy is presented. Spectral tumor markers - absorption bands of glycogen - are identified in the ATR-IR spectra of the kidney tissue smear samples. Thin kidney tissue cryo-sections currently used for IR spectros...
