We have improved the ArtiSynth biomechanical modeling toolkit to meet new challenges in oral, pharyngeal and laryngeal modeling. Our team’s current research efforts have focused on four important developments: 1. patient specific modeling, 2. updating the ArtiSynth simulation engine to support integrated soft and hard tissue models, 3. inverse modeling(More)
A considerable number of robust vocabularies and thesauri have been developed for the healthcare and biomedical domain. No single vocabulary, however; provides complete coverage of the information needs from a public health perspective. The results of an investigation of vocabulary sources for the development of a comprehensive controlled vocabulary for the(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the technique of robot-assisted high-extended salvage retroperitoneal and pelvic lymphadenectomy (sRPLND+PLND) for 'node-only' recurrent prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS In all, 10 patients underwent robot-assisted sRPLND+PLND (09/2015-03/2016) for 'node-only' recurrent prostate cancer, as identified by 11 C-acetate positron(More)
BACKGROUND Medical records are frequently consulted to verify whether the treatment and guiding principles were correct. Determine incidence and mortality trends of in situ and invasive neoplasms of the uterine cervix, in the period 1988-2004 in Goiânia, Brazil. METHODS The incident cases were identified through the Population-Based Cancer Registry of(More)
The present phenomenon of technology convergence is blurring away the frontiers between the Internet and the TV, operating a shift on the way TV is consumed. TV viewers have now access to a huge selection of TV programming as well as online contents, either previously broadcasted or natively produced for the Internet. This reality creates new necessities(More)
Deregulation of cellular energetic metabolism was recently pointed out as a hallmark of cancer cells. This deregulation involves a metabolic reprogramming that leads to a high production of lactate. Lactate efflux, besides contributing for the glycolytic flux, also acts in the extracellular matrix, contributing for cancer malignancy, by, among other(More)
EPTD Discussion Papers contain preliminary material and research results, and are circulated prior to a full peer review in order to stimulate discussion and critical comment. It is expected that most Discussion Papers will eventually be published in some other form, and that their content may also be revised. Assessing and Attributing the Benefits from(More)
Chromomycosis is a fungal infection that affects the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue and is caused by dematiaceous fungal species that turn black on staining. We report the case of a 50-year-old male patient who was a rural worker and had been treated without success for three decades. Facial lesions progressed and caused severe cicatricial(More)
