Mechanical Control of Human Osteoblast Apoptosis and Proliferation in Relation to Differentiation
It is shown that differentiation of human osteoblasts affects their responses to stretch in vitro, and this is the first study reporting on differentiation-dependent mechanical control of osteoblast proliferation and apoptosis and is fundamental in understanding mechanotransduction processes in bone.

Patient-specific image-based computer simulation for theprediction of valve morphology and calcium displacement after TAVI with the Medtronic CoreValve and the Edwards SAPIEN valve.
Dedicated software allows accurate prediction of frame morphology and calcium displacement after valve implantation, which may help to improve outcome. Expand
Phoracantha recurva (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) found in a cluster of bananas
A dead specimen of Phoracantha recurva Newman, 1840 was found in a cluster of bananas, bought in a shop at Itegem (Belgium, Brabant). The origin of the bananas is unknown. Samenvatting. PhoracanthaExpand
Patient-Specific Computer Modeling to Predict Aortic Regurgitation After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
Outcome of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) depends on a combination of patient-, procedure-, and operator-related variables. Specific device–host-related interactions may also beExpand
A validated methodology for patient specific computational modeling of self-expandable transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
The developed tools have the potential to reduce the occurrence and severity of leakage by providing the clinician with additional information prior to the intervention and can help decide on the best implant type, size and position before treatment. Expand
Palladium-Catalyzed Aerobic Oxidative Coupling of o-Xylene in Flow: A Safe and Scalable Protocol for Cross-Dehydrogenative Coupling
Herein, the first continuous cross-dehydrogenative homocoupling of an unactivated arene using oxygen as sole oxidant is reported. Employing microreactor technology which enables the use of elevatedExpand
Statistical Shape Modeling and Population Analysis of the Aortic Root of TAVI Patients
The new transcatheter technique to implant synthetic aortic valves offers a treatment to patients previously considered untreatable. However, the majority of patients suffer from leakage alongsideExpand
Aortic root sizing for transcatheter aortic valve implantation using a shape model parameterisation
This initial study showed that this semi-automatic method has the potential to correctly assign an implant size and further research is required to assess whether the different size implants would improve the outcome of those patients. Expand
Morphological Characteristics and Calcification of the Native Aortic Valve and the Relation to Significant Aortic Regurgitation after CoreValve TAVI.
A larger volume of calcification is most related to the development of significant AR (grade II-IV) following implantation, when quantified by both angiography and echocardiography. Expand
