OBJECTIVE Behçet's disease (BD) is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory vascular disease with no pathognomonic test. Low sensitivity of the currently applied International Study Group (ISG) clinical diagnostic criteria led to their reassessment. METHODS An International Team for the Revision of the International Criteria for BD (from 27 countries) submitted(More)
OBJECTIVE The soleus H- reflex is usually tested clinically in patients lying prone, with the H-latency always the criterion of choice for detecting abnormality. However, stresses on the spine vary during lying, standing, loading (weight lifting) and unloading. So the objective of this study was to measure changes in the H-reflex under 4 different loading(More)
PURPOSE H-reflex has been clinically useful in the diagnosis of radiculopathies, developmental disorders, and measurement of motoneuron excitability. However, variability of the H-reflex precluded its routine application. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the test-retest and within-subject reliability of the soleus H-reflex tested in three different(More)
9 (11.4%) began HAART during follow up. Median adherence rate was 61%. Of the 79 women, 78 (98.7%) had had at least 1 previous pregnancy, which occurred after HIV diagnosis in 63 (79.7%) women. Nine (11.4%) women had 1 or more HIV-infected children. Comorbidities were present in 20 (25.3%) women (Table 1). Liver enzymes were elevated in 4 women (1 Grade 1,(More)
We propose a facial landmarks detector, in which a part-based model is incorporated with holistic face information. In the part-based model, the face is modeled by the appearance of different face parts and their geometric relation. The appearance is described by pixel normalized difference descriptor. This descriptor is the lowest computational complexity(More)
Major congenital uterine anomalies present a management dilemma in women who are symptomatic and not responsive to medical therapy. This case report discusses the role of laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy in a woman with uterine didelphys, who presented with a long-standing history of menorrhagia, which had not responded to medical treatment. This case(More)
Since 2003, when the age threshold of cervical screening in England has been raised from 20 to 25, there have been many calls to restore the previous starting age for cervical screening as there are concerns about the delaying of initiating cervical screening may result in an increase in the risk of cervical cancer. We conducted a retrospective study to(More)
