Amr A. Rezq,Mohamed Y. Mahmoud
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2011,
Abstract: Wheat germ is one of the most potential and excellent sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber and proteins. The aim of the present study was to investigate the preventive effect of wheat germ on hypercholesteremic and atherosclerosis in rats fed cholesterol-containing diet. Five groups of rats were used; group (1) fed cholesterol free-diet (negative group); group (2) fed cholesterol-diet (positive group); groups (3), (4) and (5) were fed cholesterol-diets with adding 5, 10 and 15% wheat germ, respectively. Results revealed that positive control rats had significantly increased in serum levels of Total Lipids (TL), Triglycerides (TG), Total Cholesterol (TC), LDL-C, VLDL-C, GOT, GPT and ALP and significant decrease in serum level HDL-C which represented by increased atherogenic index as compared to the negative control groups. Histopathological examination showed that positive control rats had vaculations of tunica media, narrowing in the lumen, focal necrosis of tunica intima and tunica media associated with leucocytic cells infiltration of aorta. In addition to vaculations of cardiac myocytes associated with intramuscular edema as well as cytoplasmic vacuolization and fatty changes of hepatocytes. Feeding different levels of wheat germ caused significantly decreased in serum levels of TL, TG, TC, LDL-C, VLDL-C, GOT, GPT and ALP and significantly increased in serum level of HDL-C which represented with significantly decreased in atherogenic index as compared to the positive control group. Histopathological examination revealed that aorta, heart and liver sections of rats feeding 10 and 15% wheat germ had normal histological structure, except, some sections of group treated with 10 % wheat germ had small vacuoles in the cytoplasm of hepatocytes.

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2010,
Abstract: Amount and type of fats in the diet have an important effect on bone health and lipid profile. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of different types of dietary oils and fats on lipid profile, calcium absorption and bone mineralization in male mice. Mice weighing 25±5 g were divided into nine groups and fed on diets without oils or fats (control group) and containing soybean oil, corn oil, olive oil, palm oil, sunflower oil, butter, animal fat or margarine. Mice fed on diet containing soybean oil or olive oil had the lowest levels of TG, TC, LDL-c and HDL-c as compared to the other groups. Diets with palm oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, butter, animal fat or margarine caused significant decreases in the serum level of calcium as compared to the effect of diet without oils or fats. Mice fed diet containing olive oil, butter or animal fat had significant increase in bone density, while those fed diet containing soybean oil, corn oil, sunflower oil or margarine had significant decreases in femur bone density, compared to the control group. The apparent calcium absorption was significantly increased by feeding diets containing soybean oil, corn oil, palm oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, butter or animal fat. Dietary intake of vegetable oils improved lipid profile while butter, animal fat and margarine had the opposite effect. Butter and animal fats increased calcium and phosphorus deposition in femur bone more than vegetable oils.
Extensions to the Finite Element Technique for the Magneto-Thermal Analysis of Aged Oil Cooled-Insulated Power Transformers  [PDF]
Jehan Shazly, Amr A. Adly
Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jemaa.2012.44022
Abstract: It is well known that the hot spot temperature represents the most critical parameter identifying the power rating of a transformer. This paper investigates the effect of the degradation of core magnetic properties on temperature variation of aged oil-cooled transformers. Within this work, 2D accurate assessment of time average flux density distribution in an oil insulated-cooled 25 MVA transformer has been computed using finite-element analysis taking into account ageing and stress-induced non-uniform core permeability values. Knowing the core material specific loss and winding details, local core and winding losses are converted into heat. Based upon the ambient temperature outside the transformer tank and thermal heat transfer related factors, the detailed thermal modeling and analysis have then been carried out to determine temperature distribution everywhere. Analytical details and simulation results demonstrating effects of core magnetic properties degradation on hot spot temperatures of the transformer’s components are given in the paper.

Amr Soleiman, Amira A. Ishan
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2013.47132

The main aim of the present paper is to establish an intrinsic investigation of the energy β-conformal change of the most important special Finsler spaces, namely, Ch-recurrent, Cv-recurrent, C0-recurrent, Sv-recurrent, quasi-C-reducible, semi-C-reducible, C-reducible, P-reducible, C2-like, S3-like, P2-like and h-isotropic, ···, etc. Necessary and sufficient conditions for such special Finsler manifolds to be invariant under an energy β-conformal change are obtained. It should be pointed out that the present work is formulated in a prospective modern coordinate-free form.

Nonlinear Control of Chaotic Forced Duffing and Van der Pol Oscillators  [PDF]
Mohammed Alghassab, Amr Mahmoud, Mohamed A. Zohdy
International Journal of Modern Nonlinear Theory and Application (IJMNTA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijmnta.2017.61003
Abstract: This paper discusses a novel technique and implementation to perform nonlinear control for two different forced model state oscillators and actuators. The paper starts by discussing the Duffing oscillator which features a second order non-linear differential equation describing complex motion whereas the second model is the Van der Pol oscillator with non-linear damping. A first order actuator is added to both models to expand on the chaotic behavior of the oscillators. In order to control the system without comprising linearization, Lyapunov non-linear control was used. A control Lyapunov function was tailored to the system. This led to improved maneuverability of the controller and the performance of the overall system. The controller was found to be highly efficient in system tracking and had swift response time. Simulations were performed on both the uncontrolled and controlled cases. Both simulation results ultimately confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
Combined distal tibial rotational osteotomy and proximal growth plate modulation for treatment of infantile Blount’s disease
Amr A Abdelgawad
World Journal of Orthopedics , 2013, DOI: 10.5312/wjo.v4.i2.90
Abstract: Infantile Blount’s disease is a condition that causes genu varum and internal tibial torsion. Treatment options include observation, orthotics, corrective osteotomy, elevation of the medial tibial plateau, resection of a physeal bar, lateral hemi-epiphysiodesis, and guided growth of the proximal tibial physis. Each of these treatment options has its disadvantages. Treating the coronal deformity alone (genu varum) will result in persistence of the internal tibial torsion (the axial deformity). In this report, we describe the combination of lateral growth modulation and distal tibial external rotation osteotomy to correct all the elements of the disease. This has not been described before for treatment of Blount’s disease. Both coronal and axial deformities were corrected in this patient. We propose this combination (rather than the lateral growth modulation alone) as the method of treatment for early stages of Blount’s disease as it corrects both elements of the disease and in the same time avoids the complications of proximal tibial osteotomy.

Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2016.72011
Abstract: Purpose: To highlight the role of multi-detector computed tomography in evaluation of small intestinal neoplastic lesions. Patient and Methods: Thirty patients suspected to have small bowel neaoplasms were examined with 64 MDCT and underwent surgical exploration. Result: Contrast enhanced MDCT enterography easily diagnosed twenty patients with small intestinal neoplasms which were confirmed with surgical exploration and histopathological results. Conclusions: Our study has been proved that MDCT can be used as a front-line imaging modality for detection of small bowel neoplasms, regarding its ability to show intraluminal, mural and extraintestinal lesions with their characteristic density and features to successfully differentiate between the different neoplasms and sometimes stage them. However, operative exploration with curative resection or biopsy is still the confirmatory diagnostic method.

Case Reports in Orthopedics , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/461703
Abstract: Nonunion of long bones fixed with nails may result in implant failure. Removal of a broken intramedullary nail may be a real challenge. Many methods have been described to allow for removal of the broken piece of the nail. In this paper, we are reviewing the different techniques to extract a broken nail, classifying them into different subsets, and describing a new technique that we used to remove a broken tibial nail with narrow canal. Eight different categories of implant removal methods were described, with different methods within each category. This classification is very comprehensive and was never described before. We described a new technique (hook captured in the medulla by flexible nail introduced from the locking hole) which is a valuable technique in cases of nail of a small diameter where other methods cannot be used because of the narrow canal of the nail. Our eight categories for broken nail removal methods simplify the concepts of nail removal and allow the surgeon to better plan for the removal procedure. 1. Introduction In cases of nonunion of a fracture stabilized with intramedullary nails, fatigue failure of the nail can occur due to cyclic loading. Extraction of the broken nail will be needed in the revision surgery. Closed exchange nailing is becoming now one of the preferred methods to treat nonunion of fracture tibia and femur [1]. Closed removal of the broken distal nail can be a very hard task to achieve. Multiple techniques had been described to extract a broken distal piece of the nail, yet the procedure still can be very challenging and the commonly used methods and tools can fail to extract the broken part. In this paper, we are reviewing the different techniques to extract a broken nail, classifying them into different subsets, and describing a new technique that we used to remove a broken tibial nail with narrow canal. Pubmed and Google scholar search for words (broken nail, extraction, and removal) and cross-referencing were used to review the methods of nail extraction. 2. Case Report and Surgical Technique Twenty-eight-year-old male had open tibial fracture. Patient was treated with vascularized flap for soft tissue coverage and intramedullary nailing (Stryker, Mahwah, NJ, USA). The nail was 9?mm in diameter. Six months later, patient had bone grafting for delayed union. One year after injury, patient presented with increased pain and deformity. Radiographs showed broken nail at the junction of the distal one-fourth with the proximal 3/4. Patient was taken to surgery for the removal of the nail, bone grafting, and
