We describe a complete hardware/software system, dubbed Universal Real-Time Navigational Assistance (URNA), which enables communication of relevant location-aware information to a blind person carrying a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. Although URNA can be used for a number of different applications (e.g., an information kiosk at a shopping mall or public(More)

BACKGROUND Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is biologically an aggressive tumor for which the treatment of choice is the surgery. We reviewed the clinical profile, diagnostic methods, treatment patterns, and outcome of twenty-four MPNST patients in this study. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of 24 MPNST patients, treated from(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a biologically distinct neoplasm of intermediate grade, which can affect every possible tissue of the human body. It is a 'masquerading tumor' as the presenting complaints vary with the affected site. Occurrence of this tumor as an orbital mass is rare and is challenging for both the clinician as well as the(More)
This paper deals with two warehouse inventory model of determining the optimal replenishment policy for non-instantaneous deteriorating items partial backlogging and stock-dependent demand. In the model, shortages are allowed and the backlogging rate is variable and dependent on the waiting time for the next replenishment. The necessary and sufficient(More)
A 50-year-old man was admitted with complaints of difficulty in walking, urinary incontinence, and a lump over the lumbosacral region. X-ray examination of the lumbosacral spine revealed bizarre vertebral anomalies, including a hole in the L-5 vertebral body. At operation an enterogenous cyst in association with diastematomyelia, cutaneous fistula, and a(More)
Enteric protozoan parasites remain the most commonly encountered parasitic diseases in HIV infected patients. Opportunistic protozoal infections that infect GIT most commonly and cause diarrhea in HIV-infected patients are cryptosporidium parvum, microsporidia and Isospora belli. Developing an infection with enteric protozoan parasites is dependent on(More)
Annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma initially described by O'Brien in 1975 is a disorder of uncertain etiopathogenesis presenting with annular erythematous plaques predominantly on the sun-exposed areas. Hisptopathologically, it is characterized by elastin degenration, multinucleate giant cells, and elastophagocytosis. The authors came across 10 such(More)
This paper deals with an inflation induced stock dependent demand inventory model with permissible delay in payments. In real life situations, some products maintain freshness and quality for some time. This inventory model is developed for non-instantaneous deteriorating items. The purpose of this paper is to obtain the optimal policies for maximizing the(More)
