In the present study, linkages were examined between parental behaviors (maternal practices) at bedtime, emotional availability of mothering at bedtime, and infant sleep quality in a cross-sectional sample of families with infants between 1 and 24 months of age. Observations of maternal behaviors and maternal emotional availability were conducted(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relation between postvoid residual (PVR) and the occurrence of urinary tract infection (UTI) in stroke patients. METHOD One hundred and eighty-eight stroke patients who were admitted to an inpatient rehabilitation unit and who did not have UTI on admission (105 males, 83 females, mean age 67.1 years) were included in this study.(More)
Since the finite time stabilization is very important in many actual applications, finite time control systems have been studied a lot. Terminal sliding mode control system is a robust control scheme which guarantees that the error gets to zero in a finite time. The terminal sliding mode controller uses terminal sliding surface utilizes a power function(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective case control study. OBJECTIVES To investigate the risk of a fall by using functional mobility tests in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) via a comparison with patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA LSS is a degenerative arthritic disease in the spine that results in decreasing function,(More)
The present longitudinal study addressed the ongoing debate regarding the benefits and risks of infant-parent cosleeping by examining associations between sleep arrangement patterns across the first year of life and infant and parent sleep, marital and family functioning, and quality of mothers' behavior with infants at bedtime. Patterns of infant sleep(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate head posture and the pharyngeal airway volume changes using 3D imaging after bimaxillary surgery in mandibular prognathism patients by null hypothesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans were obtained for 25 mandibular prognathism patients before bimaxillary surgery (T1) and 6(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the usefulness of the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA) in ataxic stroke patients. METHOD This was a retrospective study of 54 patients following their first ataxic stroke. The data used in the analysis comprised ambulation status on admission and scores on the SARA, the Korean version of the Modified Barthel Index(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate renal function measurements are important in the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases. In contrast to creatinine, the production of serum cystatin C has been extensively reported to be unaffected by body muscle mass, age, gender, and nutritional status. METHODS Our study included 37 samples from diabetic chronic kidney disease(More)
We report the complete genome sequence of the Mycobacterium massiliense clinical strain Asan 50594, which was grouped into the M. massiliense type II genotype, isolated from a Korean patient. This genome sequence will serve as a valuable reference for understanding the disparity in virulence and epidemiological traits between strains belonging to the(More)
Recently, we introduced the complete genome sequence of Mycobacterium massiliense clinical isolates, Asan 50594 belonging to Type II genotype with rough colony morphology. Here, to address the issue of whether the rough colony morphotype of M. massiliense Type II genotype is genetically determined or not, we compared polymorphisms of the glycopeptidolipid(More)
