A probabilistic framework is introduced for reducing the inherent uncertainty of trajectory data collected for RFID-monitored objects. The framework represents the position of an object at each instant as a random variable over the set of possible locations. The probability density function of this random variable is initialized according to an a-priori(More)
We present a case of recurrent pulmonary alveolar proteinosis after heart-lung transplantation in a child with lysinuric protein intolerance. The recurrence of the pulmonary disease provides further insight regarding the possible pathogenesis of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and therapeutic options for this complication.
A retrospective chart review of patients with persistent subretinal and/or intraretinal fluid, despite previous treatment with intravitreal ranibizumab (0.5 mg), who were switched to aflibercept injections, was performed. Treatment was three monthly aflibercept (2 mg) injections followed by dosing on pro re nata basis. Main outcome measures included changes(More)
The problem of extracting consistent information from relational databases violating integrity constraints on numerical data is addressed. In particular, aggregate constraints defined as linear inequalities on aggregate-sum queries on input data are considered. The notion of repair as consistent set of updates at attributevalue level is exploited, and the(More)
Probabilistic abstract argumentation combines Dung’s abstract argumentation framework with probability theory in order to model uncertainty in argumentation. In this setting, we address the fundamental problem of computing the probability that a set of arguments is an extension according to a given semantics. We focus on the most popular semantics (i.e.,(More)
BACKGROUND The involvement of retina and its vasculature has been recently described in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, none of the previous works have yet investigated the choroid in vivo. OBJECTIVE Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and enhanced depth imaging (EDI) technique is non-invasively used to assess choroidal thickness in(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate percutaneous interventional and minimally invasive surgical closure of secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) in children. BACKGROUND Concern has surrounded abandoning conventional midline sternotomy in favor of the less invasive approaches pursuing a better cosmetic result and a more rational resource(More)
We treated two patients with partial oculomotor paresis who had pupillary mydriasis, marked inferior rectus muscle weakness, and medial rectus muscle paresis, which were attributed to an ipsilateral fascicular lesion, demonstrated on neuroimaging studies. These cases support the fascicular proximity of inferior rectus muscle and pupillary fibers and suggest(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of incremental risk factors for early mortality in children undergoing orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT) for congenital heart disease. METHODS Between 1988 and 2002, 43 patients (mean age 9.1+/-7.2 years) underwent 44 OHT for complex TGA (6), DORV (4), single ventricle (21), and other end-stage structural heart disease (11). Two(More)
