It has been demonstrated that immunization of transgenic mouse models of Alzheimer's disease (AD) with amyloid-beta(1-42) peptide (Abeta(1-42)) results in prevention of Abeta plaque formation and amelioration of established plaques in the brain. As the response of the T lymphocyte helper (Th) arm of the immune response had not yet been investigated after… (More)
In this video presentation, we introduce an immersive multimodal virtual environment which supports real-time interactions with 3D deformable model through a haptic device. We include a system called "FakeSpace" to imitate 3D environment, and a PHAMTOM device to simulate touching forces. Movements of 3D deformable models are simulated based on a spectral… (More)
Endoscopic vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) is increasingly being used as a means of managing perforations or anastomotic leaks of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Published outcomes are favourable, with few mentions of complications or morbidity. We present a case in which the management of a gastric perforation with endoscopic vacuum therapy was… (More)
Spontaneous flexor intratendinous ruptures are rare and incompletely understood. They occur within the substance of the tendon, and in the absence of underlying pathological processes or direct trauma. We present an unusual case of spontaneous flexor digitorum profundus tendon rupture in the palm.
