BACKGROUND The axillary reverse mapping (ARM) technique has been proposed to prevent arm lymphedema. We conducted this study to assess the feasibility of the technique and the outcomes of patients with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). METHODS From July 2009 to May 2010, a prospective study was performed in 36 patients with breast cancer undergoing an ALND.(More)
Pr evious workshave presente d solutions forstability problems arising from the di erence between the sampling rate requir ements for haptic devices (about 1 KHz) and the update rates of the physic alobjects being simulated (about 10 Hz). These methods work well when the objects are convex and non-deformable but when the object is deformable these methods(More)
Soft tissue cutting is an important task in surgery simulators. We use a separation of elements approach instead of destroying [2] or subdividing [1][5] the elements. Previously we have started a new cutting approach for 2D masssprings models: separating the elements [4]. It does not increment the number of elements (as in the subdivision approach) and(More)

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in humans, and the role of the cerebellum in its physiopathology remains the subject of study. The Purkinje cells (PC), whose axons target the dentate and interpositus nuclei, form the main cerebellar output to forebrain structures involved in epilepsy. Cerebellar atrophy related to loss of PC has(More)
