This paper examines load balancing issues relating to a distributed CORBA-based Service Control Point. Two types of load balancing strategies are explored through simulation studies: (i) a novel ant-based load balancing algorithm , which has been devised specifically for this type of system. This algorithm is compared to more traditional algorithms, (ii) a(More)
Reliability and normal values for the relaxed calcaneal stance position were determined in a nonclinic population of healthy adults and children (88 adults and 124 children) ranging in age from 5 to 36 years. The mean relaxed calcaneal stance position for adults was 6.07 degrees valgus (SD 2.71 degrees) (range, 1 degree varus to 14 degrees valgus). The mean(More)
Tricortical calcaneal autogenous bone graft (TCA) harvesting has been performed at our institution since 2005, for revision first metatarsal phalangeal joint arthrodesis (RMA) with bone defect or in primary medial column distraction arthrodesis (MCA). There is a paucity of publications on TCA. We present a retrospective analysis of complications with TCA.(More)
Obesity increases the risk for several diseases, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), coronary heart disease (CHD), hypertension, osteoarthritis and certain cancers. In addition, obese individuals often have elevated blood pressure, increased levels of serum triglycerides (TG), free fatty acids (FFA) and insulin, as well as decreased serum high density(More)
