OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between IVF-ET pregnancy outcomes and measures of embryo placement. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING Tertiary care center. PATIENT(S) Twenty-three patients who underwent two ultrasonography-guided ETs, of which one resulted in a clinical pregnancy and the other did not. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Point of embryo(More)
The Global Positioning System, or GPS, is a key technology for both the civilian and scientific research markets. GPS provides users with precise geodetic positioning and time determination. Most GPS receivers require specialized hardware and complex software to operate. One receiver, originally designed to run in DOS, will be the focus of a code migration(More)
Decision trees have been successfully applied to many areas for tasks such as classi cation, regression, and feature subset selection. Decision trees are popular models in machine learning due to the fact that they produce graphical models, as well as text rules, that end users can easily understand. Moreover, their induction process is usually fast,(More)
To evaluate the therapeutic activity of low-power laser (InGaAlP: 670 nm/30 mW), at doses of 90 J/cm(2), on the process of acute and chronic-phase repair of bone lesions of Wistar rats. Sixty-three adult males were divided into nine groups subjected to bone injury, in order to form the following treatments: T1 (control); T2 (acute-phase); T3 (chronic-phase)(More)
The sophistication of a string measures how much structural information it contains. We introduce naive sophistication, a variant of sophistication based on randomness deficiency. Naive sophistication measures the minimum number of bits needed to specify a set in which the string is a typical element. Thanks to Vereshchagin and Vitányi, we know that(More)
This paper presents a pattern language for the perception, design and implementation of distributed application partitioning. The pattern language describes a stepwise development which offers the following qualities: expressiveness and support of a wide range of user models; smooth transformation of an object-oriented model onto a client-server model;(More)
Kolmogorov complexity (K) is an incomputable function. It can be approximated from above but not to arbitrary given precision and it cannot be approximated from below. By restricting the source of the data to a specific model class, we can construct a computable function κ to approximate K in a probabilistic sense: the probability that the error is greater(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the cicatricial repair of perforating cornea in rabbits, by using the N-butyl cyanoacrylate adhesive compared to the 910-polyglactine thread suture through macroscopic and histological assays. Corneas from 18 adult rabbits were perforated and subsequently occluded with N-butyl cyanoacrylate synthetic adhesive (right(More)
We assessed the repair of transverse, 3-mm wide bone gaps created at the distal radius in 28 dogs that were randomly divided into two 14-animal groups; one was the control group and the other received a daily, 20-min application of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound for 100 days. Sequential radiographs, histomorphometrics, bone fluorescent histology and bone(More)
