Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) are core components of the Internet infrastructure where Internet Service Providers (ISPs) meet and exchange traffic. During the last few years, the number and size of IXPs have increased rapidly, driving the flattening and shortening of Internet paths. However, understanding the present status of the IXP ecosystem and its(More)
INTRODUCTION In patients who have undergone a total joint replacement, any mass occurring in or adjacent to the joint needs thorough investigation and a wear debris-induced cyst should be suspected. CASE PRESENTATION An 81-year-old man presented with a painful and enlarging mass at the popliteal fossa and calf of his right knee. He had had a total right(More)
Opportunistic networks use human mobility and consequent wireless contacts between mobile devices to disseminate data in a peer-to-peer manner. Designing appropriate algorithms and protocols for such networks is challenging as it requires understanding patterns of (1) mobility (who meets whom), (2) social relations (who knows whom) and (3), communication(More)
We report a rare case of double fractures of the odontoid process combined with a fracture of the anterior arch of the atlas. Combined fractures of the odontoid process and the upper cervical spine are not unusual. The presence of two different patterns of odontoid process fractures combined with a fracture of the anterior arch of the atlas is not reported(More)
UNLABELLED We retrospectively studied nine children and adolescents with congenital malformations, large reconstruction after tumor excision, fractures and osteotomies of the upper extremity, and hand trauma with bone and soft tissue defects treated by internal synthesis using a biocopolymer of L- and DL-stereoisomers of lactic acid polymers and(More)
An 18-year-old woman presented with a gradually increasing distal leg mass 8 years after wide resection for an osteosarcoma and reconstruction of the proximal left tibia with a rotating hinged knee megaprosthesis. Open biopsy of the distal leg mass showed necrobiotic tissue, metallosis, fibroblasts, osteoblasts, histiocytes, and multinucleated giant cells.(More)
The position of the nodes within a network topology largely determines the level of their involvement in various networking functions. Yet numerous node centrality indices, proposed to quantify how central individual nodes are in this respect, yield very different views of their relative significance. Our first contribution is then an exhaustive survey and(More)
