STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study using a cross-sectional design. OBJECTIVES To characterize ankle and hip muscle performance in women with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) and compare them to matched controls. We hypothesized that ankle plantar flexor strength, and hip extensor and abductor strength and endurance, would be diminished in(More)
We report a case of methimazole-induced acute hepatic failure, which occurred 17 weeks after initiation of the drug in a 43-year-old man with hyperthyroidism and hepatitis B surface antigenemia. Postmortem needle autopsy of the liver revealed an established micronodular cirrhosis secondary to hepatitis B with moderate septal/portal inflammation, marked(More)
SUMMARY We propose a Solid-State Disk (SSD) with a Double Data Rate (DDR) DRAM interface for high-performance PCs. Traditional SSDs simply inherit the interface protocol of Hard Disk Drives (HDD) such as Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment (PATA) or Serial-ATA (SATA) for maintaining the compatibility. However, SSD itself provides much higher performance(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of tendon thickness on the needle penetration ability of four different designs of antegrade suture passers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four antegrade suture passers were tested: (a) ExpresSew II (Depuy Mitek Inc., Raynham, MA), (b) Arthrex Scorpion (Arthrex, Naples, FL), (c) Concept (Linvatec Corp, Largo, FL), and (d) ElitePass(More)
—We propose a novel solid-state disk (SSD) architecture that utilizes a double-data-rate synchronous NAND flash interface for improving read and write performance. Unlike the conventional design, the data transfer rate in the proposed design is doubled in harmony with synchronous signaling. The new architecture does not require any extra pins with respect(More)
