Abstract Injection medialization laryngoplasty is a procedure that has many advantages in treating vocal fold paralysis; however, undesired complications can occur. We experienced a case of a pulmonary embolism, suspected in a patient who had undergone an injection laryngoplasty with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). The patient suffered dyspnea after undergoing the injection laryngoplasty. Chest embolism computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a new lesion of enhancing materials at the pulmonary vasculature in the right upper lobe. The CaHA embolism was suspected, and the patient was treated with warfarin for 12 mon...

Abstract PURPOSE: We aimed to establish the propofol effect-site concentration (Ce) for appropriate sedation by pharmacodynamic analysis and to determine the propofol Ce during occurrence of sedation-related side effects in pediatric patients undergoing brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 50 pediatric patients scheduled for brain MRI, sedation was induced with 2.0 mg/kg propofol; additional propofol doses were 0.5-1 mg/kg. Propofol Ce was simulated by inputting the propofol administration profiles of patients into a pediatric compartmental model (Choi model). The relationship bet...

Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of three-dimensional fast spin-echo (3D FSE-Cube) without fat suppression (NFS) for detecting knee lesions, using comparison to 3D FSE-Cube with fat suppression (FS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred twenty-four patients who underwent 1.5T knee magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and 25 subsequent arthroscopic surgeries were retrospectively reviewed. Using arthroscopic results and two-dimensional images as reference standards, diagnostic performances of 3D FSE-Cube-NFS and FS imaging about lesions of ligament, meniscus, subchondral bone marrow edem...

Adipose tissue, along with arteries, veins, and peripheral nerves, is a normal constituent of mesenchymal tissues encasing the corpora cavernosa at the level of the penile shaft, variously designated as penile fascia or Bucks fascia. To our knowledge, the presence of fat has not been previously reported within the corpora cavernosa. One or 2 transversal histologic sections at the level of the surgical margin at the shaft of 63 consecutive partial penectomy specimens for squamous cell carcinoma were evaluated. From outer to inner tissues, 3 anatomic levels were identified: (1) outer fascia composed of a loose fibrovascular ...

Ivleva, Banupriya Arumugam, Reinhard Niessner, Frank Trixler Organic Solid-Solid Wetting Deposition (OSWD) enables the fabrication of supramolecular architectures without the need for solubility or vacuum conditions. The technique is based on a process which directly generates two-dimensional monolayers from three-dimensional solid organic powders. Consequently, insoluble organic pigments and semiconductors can be made to induce monolayer self-assembly on substrate surfaces, such as graphene and carbon nanotub...

Spinelli, Noé Cheung, Amauri Garcia Over the last years, magnesium and its alloys have deserved special attention due to their good mechanical properties and promising biomedical applications. In the present investigation the Mg-12 wt.%Zn alloy has been directionally solidified (DS) under an extensive range of cooling rates. Based on the scarceness of characterization works related to both the morphology of the eutectic mixture and the...

Bhunia Thin films of ZnSnP2 were successfully grown on p-type silicon (001), sapphire and glass substrate by e-beam evaporation method. The as-deposited films were characterized using scanning and high resolution transmission electron microscopes, reflectance and transmittance spectroscopy and photoluminescence measurement at low temperature. Polycrystalline nature of the films was verified by high resolution transmission electron mic...

Authors: Olivot JM Abstract The ischemic penumbra is a transient and potentially reversible condition. Therefore, infarct progression and its counterpart penumbral salvage are highly variable and result from the interaction of 3 major factors: collateral flow, revascularization delay and success. Multimodal brain imaging now offers in clinical practice an exhaustive characterization of the acute ischemic injury: vessel site occlusion, infarction/critical hypoperfusion volume, and collateral flow. From 1995 to 2015, IV alteplase administered within 4.5hours after the onset of acute BI diagnosed by the absence of hem...

Authors: Somek M, Hercigonja-Szekeres M Abstract The amount of stored data in health information systems can reach tera- and petabytes and application of specific algorithms in the field of data mining makes finding useful information suitable for making quality business decisions. A frequently used method for determining the rules of the relationship between attributes is the Association rule by applying Apriori algorithm. Lack of basic Apriori algorithm is derived from the slow work due to multiple scanned data sets. By examining the speed of generating the basic rules in relation to the improved Apriori algorith...
