Large networks, having thousands of vertices and lines, can be found in many different areas, e. g: genealogies, flow graphs of programs, molecule, computer networks, transportation networks, social networks, intra/inter organisational networks ... Many standard network algorithms are very time and space consuming and therefore unsuitable for analysis of(More)
We report the case of a profoundly deaf 4-year-old boy with congenital deafness as a result of Mondini's dysplasia. The Mondini inner ear malformation is the result of arrested labyrinthine development during embryogenesis and is characterized by both bony and membranous anomalies of the inner ear. The dysplastic cochlear anatomy does not preclude(More)
Postnatal administration of alpha-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO), an irreversible inhibitor of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), is known to curtail replication of granule cells in the cerebellum of the rat, but its effects on post-proliferative neurons is unknown. This Golgi study assessed the influence of daily postnatal injections of DFMO on dendritic(More)
During replacement to the abdomen of the exteriorized uterus at cesarean section under epidural block, a previously healthy woman developed cardiorespiratory arrest. Tracheal intubation revealed low end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration suggesting embolization. Resuscitative efforts were successful. Uterine exteriorization - as well as the Trendelenburg(More)
A speech perception hierarchy has been developed and applied to assess the influence of cochlear implants and tactile aids on the acquisition of auditory, speech, and language skills in deaf children. Encouraging improvements were noted with both types of sensory aids at the detection level. The House 3M and Nucleus cochlear implant designs appear to offer(More)
The first case of the use of a tissue expander in revision total knee surgery is reported. A 76-year-old woman presented with extremely adherent scare tissue on the anterior proximal tibia that was the result of multiple debridements and skin grafting for an infected primary total knee arthroplasty. The tissue expander was placed prior to subsequent(More)
