Pneumopericardium is a rare cause of cardiac tamponade. It is an exceptional complication of lung transplantation. We have presented a case of a patient with cystic fibrosis who experienced cardiac tamponade secondary to a tension pneumopericardium during the postoperative course after lung transplantation. Dehiscence of the bronchial suture line was(More)
Run-time reconfigurable (RTR) FPGAs combine the flexibility of software with the high efficiency of hardware. Still, their potential cannot be fully exploited due to increased complexity of the design process. Consequently, to enable an efficient design flow, we devise a set of prerequisites to increase the flexibility and reusability of current FPGA-based(More)
Adoption of reconfigurable computing is limited in part by the lack of simplified, economic, and reusable solutions. The significant speedup and energy saving can increase performance but also design complexity; in particular for heterogeneous SoCs blending several CPUs, GPUs, and FPGA-Accelerator Cores. On the other hand, implementing complex algorithms in(More)
The dependability of heterogeneous many-core FPGA based systems are threatened by higher failure rates caused by disruptive scales of integration, increased design complexity, and radiation sensitivity. Triple-modular redundancy (TMR) and run-time reconfiguration (RTR) are traditional fault-tolerant (FT) techniques used to increase dependability. However,(More)
Traditional embedded systems are evolving into power-and-performance-domain self-aware intelligent systems in order to overcome complexity and uncertainty. Without human control, they need to keep operative states in applications such as drone-based delivery or robotic space landing. Nowadays, the partial and run-time reconfiguration (RTR) of FPGA-based(More)
We present a descriptive study of patients referred as candidates for lung transplantation in the last 14 years. The 837 requests were evaluated stepwise in three phases: phase I, derivation report; phase II, outpatient evaluation; and phase III, inpatient evaluation. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was the most common reason for referral (31%).(More)
