Background: The experience of short term results of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair using 3D mesh in a developing country is reviewed. Methods: From January 2012 to February 2014, 53 patients underwent laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty. A retrospective case series of 53 consecutive patients undergoing TEP/TAPP by a single surgical team was followed prospectively with a focused physical examination and interview. 4 out of 53 patients had recurrent hernia following open repairs and 49 had primary hernias. Data collected included operative time, intraoperative bleeding, intraoperative difficulties, immediate postoperative pain, chronic groin pain, recurrence, sensory disturbance, activity or occupational limitation and personal satisfaction. Results: All the patients were male aged 32 to 75 years with a mean age of 53.5 years. Mean operative time was 37.4 minutes; intraoperative dissection, blood loss were less; and immediate postoperative pain was negligible as assessed by VAS. There was no mortality or major morbidity. Mean follow-up was 12 months (2 to 18 months). Follow-up was completed by interview and physical examination. Hernia was not found to recur during the follow up period. Chronic pain occurred in 2 patients (3.7%), which was mild in nature. Ninety-seven percent of patients were satisfied with their repair and would or had recommended TEP/TAPP to others using 3D Mesh. Conclusions: Short-term results of TEP/TAPP hernia repair using 3D mesh demonstrated to be an effective and safe procedure with low prevalence of chronic pain that is generally of a mild, infrequent nature. It was also concurred that there is decrease in operative time. Manipulation of mesh was significantly reduced. Intraoperative bleeding and use of post operative analgesia was reduced considerably. There was no recurrence, however the cost of the mesh increased the overall cost of the procedure acting as a limiting factor in a developing country.

Charge screening and carrier transport in AA-stacked bilayer graphene: tuning via a perpendicular electric field
Yawar Mohammadi
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1016/j.ssc.2014.10.032
Abstract: The static dielectric function in AA-stacked bilayer graphene (BLG), subjected to an electric field applied perpendicular to layers, is calculated analytically within the random phase approximation (RPA). This result is used to calculate the screened Coulomb interaction and the electrical conductivity. The screened Coulomb interaction, which here can be tuned by the perpendicular electric field, shows a power-law decay as $1/(\gamma^{2}+V^2)$ at long-distance limit where $V$ and $\gamma$ are the electrical potential and the inter-layer hopping energy respectively, indicating that the Coulomb interaction is suppressed at high perpendicular electric fields. Furthermore, Our results for the effect of the short-range and the long-range (Coulomb) scattering on the electrical conductivity show that the shot-range scattering yields a constant electrical conductivity which is not affected by the perpendicular electric filed. While the electrical conductivity limited by the Coulomb scattering is enhanced by the perpendicular electric field and increases linearly in $V^2$ at small $V$ with a finite value at $V=0$, indicating that we can tune the electrical conductivity in AA-stacked BLG by applying a perpendicular electric field.

Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1016/j.jmmm.2015.07.094
Abstract: We study the RKKY interaction between two magnetic impurities located on same layer (intralayer case) or on different layers (interlayer case) in undoped bilayer graphene in the four-bands model, by directly calculating the Green functions in the eigenvalues and eigenvectors representation. Our results show that both intra- and interlayer RKKY interactions between two magnetic impurities located on same (opposite) sublattice are always ferromagnetic (antiferromagnetic). Furthermore we find unusual long-distance decay of the RKKY interaction in BLG. The intralyer RKKY interactions between two magnetic impurities located on same sublattice, $J^{A_{n}A_{n}}(\mathbf{R})$ and $J^{B_{n}B_{n}}(\mathbf{R)}$, decay closely as $1/R^{6}$ and $1/R^{2}$ at large impurity distances respectively, but when they are located on opposite sublattices the RKKY interactions exhibit $1/R^{4}$ decays approximately. In the interlayer case, the RKKY interactions between two magnetic impurities located on same sublattice show a decay close to $1/R^{4}$ at large impurity distances, but if two magnetic impurities be on opposite sublattices the RKKY interactions, $J^{A_{1}B_{2}}(\mathbf{R})$ and $J^{B_{1}A_{2}}(\mathbf{R)}$, decay closely as $1/R^{6}$ and $1/R^{2}$ respectively. Both intra- and interlayer RKKY interactions have anisotropic oscillatory factors which for intralayer case is equal to that for single layer graphene. Our results at weak and strong interlayer coupling limits reduce to the RKKY interaction of SLG and that of BLG in the two-bands approximation respectively.
Magnetism of an adatom on biased AA-stacked bilayer graphene
Yawar Mohammadi,Rostam Moradian
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1016/j.physb.2014.02.010
Abstract: We study magnetism of an adatom adsorbed on AA-stacked bilayer graphene (BLG) in both unbiased and biased cases, using the Anderson impurity model. We find different magnetic phase diagrams for the adatom, depending on the energy level of the adatom, which varies from the magnetic phase diagram of adatom in normal metals to that in graphene. This is due to the individual energy dependence of the density of states (DOS) of AA-stacked BLG and anomalous broadening of the adatom energy level. Furthermore we investigate the effect of a bias voltage on DOS of AA-stacked and show that the magnetization of the adatom can be controlled by applying the bias voltage. This allows for possibility of using AA-stacked BLG in spintronic devices.
Local moment formation in bilayer graphene
Yawar Mohammadi,Rostam Moradian
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1016/j.ssc.2013.10.021
Abstract: The local properties of bilayer graphene (BLG) due to the spatial inhomogeneity of its sublattices are of interest. We apply Anderson impurity model to consider the local moment formation on a magnetic impurity which could be adsorbed on different sublattices of BLG. We find different features for the impurity magnetization when it is adsorbed A and B sublattices. The impurity adsorbed on A sublattice can magnetize even when the impurity level is above the Fermi level and the on-site coulomb energy is very small. But when the impurity is adsorbed on B sublattice the magnetization is possible for limited values of the impurity level and the on-site coulomb energy. This is due to different local density of the low energy states at A and B sublattices which originates from their spatial inhomogeneity. Also we show that electrical controlling the magnetization of adatoms besides it's inhomogeneity in BLG allow for possibility of using BLG in spintronic devices with higher potential than graphene.

American Journal of Analytical Chemistry (AJAC) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajac.2011.228123
Abstract: A market based survey was carried out to evaluate the level of 26 pesticides in some commonly used fruits in Hyderabad region, Pakistan. Gas chromatography coupled with micro electron capture detector was used to assess the levels of pesticide residues. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) was also applied for the confirmation of results. Out of total 131 analyzed samples, 53 (40%) were found contaminated with pesticide residues while only 3 (2%) samples were exceeded the MRLs of some pesticides. Chlorpyrifos and dieldrin were detected in almost all analyzed samples. Residues of chlorpyrifos (1256 µg/kg) and endosulfan sulfate (1236 µg/kg) were found higher in orange and apple samples, respectively. The findings of this study provided important data about contamination of pesticide residue in some fruits sold in Hyderabad, Pakistan, and recommended that monitoring studies should be expanded to other fruits grown in different agro climatic regions, which may serve as basis for future policy about the standards and quality control of pesticides.

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.43015
Abstract: Polio vaccination in Pakistan has received strong reaction from the society. Many reasons have been documented in literature to explain the causes of this issue. The present study is focused on the analysis of anatomy of genesis of Polio Vaccination Hindrance Syndrome (PVHS) in the light of Quranic Verses, Hadiths (saying of Prophet) and their interpretations done by the Muslim clerics at weekly sermons (Khotbat). Along with religious explanation, the medical aspects of vaccination are also taken under consideration. It is concluded from this analysis that Islam does not resist from Polio Vaccination and related medication. The real problem lies in the perception of vaccination as an attempt to genocide Muslims, coupled with lack of interests in international agencies.
Controllable photo-induced spin and valley filtering in silicene
Yawar Mohammadi,Borhan Arghavani Nia
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: We study ballistic transport of Dirac electrons through a strip in silicene, when the strip is exposed to off-resonant circularly polarized light and an electric field applied perpendicular to the silicene plane. We show that the conductance through the strip is spin- or/and valley-polarized. This can be explained by spin-valley coupling in silicene, and modification of its band structure through virtual absorption/emission processes and also by the perpendicular electric field. The spin- (valley-) polarization can be enhanced by tuning the light intensity and the value of the perpendicular electric field, leading to perfect spin (valley) filtering for certain of their values. Further, the spin (valley) polarization can be inverted by reversing the perpendicular electric field (by reversing the perpendicular electric field or reversing the circular polarization of the light irradiation). The conditions necessary for the fully valley polarization is determined.
Electronic properties of armchair AA-stacked bilayer graphene nanoribbons
Yawar Mohammadi,Borhan Arghavani Nia
Physics , 2014,
Abstract: We study analytically, based on the tight-binding model, the electronic band structure of armchair AA-stacked bilayer graphene nanoribbons (BLGNRs) in several regimes. We apply hard-wall boundary conditions to determine the discretion dominating on the Bloch wavefunctions in the confined direction. First we consider an ideal case, perfect nanoribbons without any edge deformation, and show that their electronic properties are strongly size-dependent. We find that the narrow armchair AA-stacked BLGNRs (similar to single-layer graphene nanoribbons) may be metallic or semiconducting depending on their width determined by the number of dimer lines across the ribbon width, while the wide ribbons are metallic. Then we show that, when the edge deformation effects are taken into account, all narrow armchair AA-stacked BLGNRs become semiconducting while the wide ribbons remain metallic. We also investigate effects of an electric filed applied perpendicular to the nanoribbon layers and show it can be used to tune the electronic properties of these nanoribbons leading to a semiconducting-to-metallic phase transition at a critical value of the electric field which depends on the nanoribbon width. Furthermore, in all regimes, we calculate the corresponding wavefunctions which can be used to investigate and predict various properties in these nanoribbons.
