The superiority between posterior-stabilized mobile-bearing and fixed-bearing designs still remains controversial. Fifty-six consecutive patients undergoing primary, unilateral knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis were randomly assigned to receive either a mobile-bearing (29 patients) or fixed-bearing (27 patients) prosthesis. We report the results at 4 to(More)
Storage traffic. The test-bed is based on the recently proposed Strongly connected Light-trail (SLiT) technology that enables the triple features of dynamic provisioning, spatial sub-wavelength grooming and optical multicasting – that are quintessential for provisioning of the aforementioned emerging services. SLiT technology entails the use of a(More)
Optical Switching and Networking xx (xxxx) xxx–xxx Abstract Contemporary deployments of optical access networks are based on the principles of Passive Optical Networks (PONs). PONs deploy a star topology and dual wavelength for communication between the center and ends of a star. The star topology requires that each end-user be connected to the star(More)
Light-mesh – an alternate solution for access networks is presented. Two heuristic topology algorithms are discussed and simulated showing cost and performance benefits. The growth of broadband services like Video-on-Demand (VoD), online-gaming, IPTV and Triple Play have propelled the need for high-speed broadband access using fiber technology. Passive(More)
BACKGROUND Complex AO type C3 fractures of the distal femur are challenging injuries, fraught with complications such as malunion and stiffness. We prospectively evaluated a consecutive series of patients with complex AO type C3 distal femur fractures to determine the clinicoradiological outcome after fixation with a single locked plate using modified(More)
—Optical backbone networks carry a huge amount of bandwidth and serve as a key enabling technology to provide telecommunication connectivity across the world. Currently, fiber-optic cables carry about 99% of global Internet traffic. Hence, in events of network component (node/link) failures, communication networks may suffer from huge amount of bandwidth(More)
Eponyms and colloquialisms are commonly used in orthopaedic literature and convey a great deal of information in a concise fashion. Several orthopaedic conditions have characteristic clinical or radiologic appearances, mimicking the appearance of certain arms or weapons. Most of these are easy to memorise and recognise, provided the orthopaedic surgeon is(More)
