BACKGROUND There are few data describing successful institutional "conversion" from open colectomy/standard care techniques to laparoscopic colectomy/fast-track care. PURPOSE To assess the benefits of transitioning an institution from open to laparoscopic colectomy with fast-track care while avoiding a learning curve. METHOD Twenty consecutive(More)
This tutorial review--which should particularly appeal to chemists, biochemists, and molecular biologists interested in catalysis, redox processes, and enzymology--summarizes the recent progress toward developing catalysts capable of destroying one or more of the classical chemical warfare agents under ambient conditions. Specifically, we explore the(More)
This paper proposes design criteria for the crosstalk interference between digital line systems operating in multipair cable, with plesiochronous and synchronous network configurations. Existing solutions are shown to be appropriate in some cases, in some other cases to be based on imperfect design criteria, and in other cases, such as the plesiochronous(More)
