Inheritance is one of the key concepts of the object-oriented paradigm. In this article, we briefly review a very commonly known model of inheritance---Smalltalk 80---and the different steps that are taken in the inheritance process. We then analyze the Ada concept of derived types in order to simulate the inheritance mechanism that has been presented. By… (More)
Air management process in a turbocharged diesel engine is a multivariable, highly coupled nonlinear system with fast dynamics. Because of this, control algorithms with reasonably low computation times (enabling real time application) must be used. Furthermore, testing of new algorithms on a real engine is expensive. Therefore, a detailed non-linear engine… (More)
VIP is a peptide synthesised in the pituitary gland and is involved in the stimulation of prolactin secretion. However, to date it has not been determined whether VIP is able to regulate the proliferation of pituitary prolactin-producing cells, like other factors involved in the regulation of prolactin such as estradiol or dopamine. The aim of the present… (More)
Gastric volvulus is a rare entity that was first described by Berti in 1866 while performing a necropsy. In 1896, Berg first established the diagnosis during the operation. In 1904, Borchardt described the classic triad of epigastric distension with pain, difficulty for the nasogastric tube to pass and nausea without vomiting. A case of a female patient… (More)
Left ventricular free wall rupture after a myocardial infarction is a complication which is unusually seen during ventriculography. We present the case of a patient who developed a cardiac rupture and tamponade captured on ventriculography.
INTRODUCTION For many years, the benefits of reperfusion treatment in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have been attributed to the re-establishment of coronary flow in the artery responsible for the infarction (ARI). Introduction and objectives. A variable percentage of patients with myocardial infarction treated with successful primary angioplasty and… (More)
