OBJECT Pyogenic vertebral infections are rare. In most papers investigators have focused on risk factors, clinical characteristics, and diagnostic findings, and discussed different management strategies. The optimal strategy for dealing with spinal infections, however, remains controversial. Additionally, outcome data regarding quality of life (QOL) after(More)
The monitoring of ecosystems alterations has become a crucial task in order to develop valuable habitats for rare and threatened species. The information extracted from hyperspectral remote sensing data enables the generation of highly spatially resolved analyses of such species' habitats. In our study we combine information from a species ordination with(More)

CASE PRESENTATION We present the case of a 20-year-old Caucasian man who experienced paradoxical cerebral fat embolism syndrome with fulminant progression after intramedullary nailing of a(More)
INTRODUCTION Physical fitness and trunk stability are essential factors for successful soccer competition. MATERIALS AND METHODS We investigated the impact of soccer exposure on the trunk muscle profile of players of different skill levels. Professional and amateur soccer players were examined for trunk flexibility and maximum isometric muscle strength in(More)
Fully-immersive applications in a distributed environment play an increasing role for training and simulation related areas. The Distributed Interactive Simulation protocols were created to ensure interoperability across participating sites. However, until recently the deployment of applications based on this set of standards was dependent on either(More)
