BACKGROUND The importance of variant anatomy is only mentioned generally in most articles in this era of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We report a series of 14 patients in whom a seemingly low insertion of hepatic segmental duct VII-VIII was clinically important. METHODS The patients were managed at Duke University Medical Center. Two intraoperative(More)
Previous studies have documented decreases in serum-free triiodothyronine (T3) after brain death and improved hemodynamics with its replacement, suggesting its controversial, but promising, clinical utility for managing potential organ donors. Vasopressin is also commonly used clinically as a pressor agent after brain death. A load-independent analysis of(More)
UNLABELLED The mouse has become the animal of choice for genetic manipulations resulting in altered myocardial function, but assessment of cardiac function is extremely difficult due to the animal's size. This study was designed to establish a work-performing isolated mouse heart preparation to objectively investigate myocardial performance in murine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to optimize selection criteria of biologic versus mechanical valve prostheses for aortic valve replacement. METHODS Retrospective analysis was performed for 841 patients undergoing isolated, first-time aortic valve replacement with Carpentier-Edwards (n = 429) or St Jude Medical (n = 412) prostheses. RESULTS(More)
This paper reviews standard oversampling strategies as performed in the multiscale finite element method (MsFEM). Common to those approaches is that the oversampling is performed in the full space restricted to a patch including coarse finite element functions. We suggest, by contrast, performing local computations with the additional constraint that trial(More)
In this paper we propose and analyze a localized orthogonal decomposition (LOD) method for solving semi-linear elliptic problems with heterogeneous and highly variable coefficient functions. This Galerkin-type method is based on a generalized finite element basis that spans a low dimensional multiscale space. The basis is assembled by performing localized(More)
This paper presents an optimal nonconforming adaptive finite element algorithm and proves its quasi-optimal complexity for the Stokes equations with respect to natural approximation classes. The proof does not explicitly involve the pressure variable and follows from a novel discrete Helmholtz decomposition of deviatoric functions. Mathematics Subject(More)
