OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence(More)
Consecutive patients undergoing knee arthroplasty or tibial osteotomy at four participating hospitals received either enoxaparin, 30 mg subcutaneously every 12 h (n = 66) or an identical-appearing placebo (n = 65). All study medications started the morning after the operation and were continued up to a maximum of 14 days. Patients underwent surveillance(More)

Symphysitis of the pubis due to Streptococcus occurred after endoscopic resection of the prostate in a 69-year-old man. Despite a well conducted antibiotic regimen, signs persisted one year later and required arthrography that showed a prostato-symphysis fistula.

BACKGROUND There is an inverse relationship between changes in the concentration of sodium in plasma (PNa) and intracellular fluid (ICF) volume. Intakes and losses of sodium (Na), potassium (K) and water can be divided into two volumes: isotonic and electrolyte-free water (EFW). Calculations of these volumes assess a tonicity balance, a tonicity imbalance(More)
Knowledge management is one of the critical issues for the improvement of enterprise performances. Different methods exist for extracting and formalizing knowledge in order to create knowledge-based applications. Most of integrated design and manufacturing technological processes are more or less based on knowledge that has been translated into models and(More)
