Advanced forms of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis or Forestier's disease can induce dysphagia and significant respiratory symptoms such as hoarseness, dyspnea, snoring and laryngeal stridor. Severe respiratory distress is very rare. Two identical cases of chronic respiratory distress due to bilateral vocal cord adduction-fixation in conjunction(More)
Background: In our department, axillary views of the shoulder in trauma patients are not performed on a routine base, but sometimes, they are ordered by the trauma surgeon. We usually perform an anteroposterior view of the shoulder, combined with a posterior and an anterior oblique view of the shoulder in trauma patients. Because the classical described(More)
In this paper we research an FPGA based application specific instruction set processor (ASIP) tailored to the needs of a flow aware Ethernet access node. The processor has an architecture optimized to handle flow processing tasks such as parsing, classification and packet manipulation. The VLIW instruction set allows for high degree of parallelism among the(More)
In this paper we research an FPGA based Application Specific Instruction Set Processor (ASIP) tailored to the needs of a flow aware Ethernet access node using a retargetable compilation flow. The toolchain is used to develop an initial processor design, asses the performance and identify the potential bottlenecks. A second design iteration results in a(More)
Anterior gastric seromyotomy combined with posterior truncal vagotomy has been proposed as an acid-reducing operation for patients with duodenal ulcer. Section of the posterior vagal trunk could, however, be held responsible for reduced pancreatic function, seen in patients after bilateral truncal vagotomy. In this study the pancreatic function after(More)
This prospective observational study examined the adherence to published European guidelines on erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) and the pattern of use and effect of darbepoetin alfa (DA) 500 μg once every 3 weeks (Q3W) for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced anaemia (CIA). A total of 293 patients were included (263 solid tumour, 30 haematologic(More)
