In the orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA) communication system, resource allocation plays an important role in improving the transmission performance. The maximum spectral efficiency can be achieved through channel quality measurement, resource allocation, adaptive modulation, and so on. In this brief, we design a partial cached fast(More)
In this paper, we propose a VLSI design of a 4×4 MIMO-OFDMA down-link baseband receiver for the mobile communications. The receiver consists of synchronization, channel estimation/compensation, precode codebook search, and MIMO detection. To realize the closed-loop MIMO system in the mobile environment, we utilize the MMSE-OSIC algorithm for MIMO detector(More)
Mucoceles are quite common in the oral cavity, but reports on pediatric patients are very rare. The aims of this study were to present our data and experience in the treatment of mucoceles of the oral cavity in pediatric patients, to compare them with those of other countries, and to remind the pediatric physician to devote much attention to lesions of the(More)
Septic arthritis is the most rapidly destructive joint disease, but its early diagnosis remains challenging; delayed or inadequate treatment, even by expert physicians, can lead to irreversible joint destruction. Between 25% and 50% of patients develop irreversible loss of joint function, which is especially concerning in elderly patients. To understand the(More)
Stretchable microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) possess higher mechanical deformability and adaptability than devices based on conventional solid and flexible substrates, hence they are particularly desirable for biomedical, optoelectronic, textile and other innovative applications. The stretchability performance can be evaluated by the failure strain of(More)
Patients with coronoid process hyperplasia of the mandibular area are rare. The treatment of this disease is to increase the patient's mouth opening by surgery. There are various, but controversial, methods to treat it. We present a modified (gap) coronoidotomy procedure in detail and compare it with other conventional methods to treat coronoid process(More)
Surgical removal of the mandibular third molar is a regular surgical procedure in dental clinics, and like all operations, it may have some complications, such as infection, bleeding, nerve injuries, trismus and so on. An accidentally displaced lower third molar is a relatively rare complication, but may cause severe tissue injury and medicolegal problems.(More)
The aims of this preliminary study were to present a modified mandibular splint together with a treatment regimen and to evaluate their effects on the treatment of reciprocal joint sounds of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The study participants were recruited from 312 consecutive patients in the temporomandibular disorder clinic of a medical center in(More)
