—It is unrealistic to assume that all nodes in an ad hoc wireless network would be willing to participate in cooperative communication, especially if their desired Quality-of-Service (QoS) is achievable via direct transmission. An incentive-based auction mechanism is presented to induce cooperative behavior in wireless networks with emphasis on users with(More)
The Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) is a standardized, validated, and reliable tool to assess neuropsychiatric derangements in dementia patients. The aim of this study is to develop the Korean version of the NPI (K-NPI) and to test its reliability and usefulness in dementia patients. The subjects were 49 normal controls and 92 patients with Alzheimer's(More)
Advanced atherosclerosis is often associated with dystrophic calcification and remodeling of extracellular matrix of vascular wall. Recently many studies have documented a general relationship between calcification and severity of coronary disease, and discussed the feasibility of electron beam computed tomography for detecting and quantifying the coronary(More)
Sulodexide, a glycosaminoglycan-containing compound, is known to have an antiproliferative effect on vascular smooth-muscle cells, in vitro, as well as antithrombotic and fibrinolytic effects. But there are few reports about the effect of neointimal proliferation in vivo. In this study, we examined whether Sulodexide was effective in the inhibition of(More)
The purpose of this study was to visualize the spatial patterns and connection of channels created after percutaneous transmyocardial revascularization (PTMR) in normal porcine hearts, and to estimate the relative contributions of transmyocardial and coronary perfusion. Six pigs underwent PTMR creating channels using radiofrequency ablative energy.(More)
The internal elastic lamina (IEL) serves as a barrier for cells and macromolecules between the intima and media in the vascular wall. We evaluated the morphological changes and quantitative assessments of the IEL architecture in the coronary circulation of pigs fed with a high cholesterol diet. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis of the IEL from(More)
The objectives of this investigation are to evaluate the rheologic properties in atherosclerotic disease treated with the various coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) models by numerical analysis, we used four different CABG models for the assessment of spatial fluctuation in wall shear stress, pressure variation and mass flow rate with Carreau model and(More)
The deletion polymorphism of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) genotype has been reported as an independent risk factor for the development of myocardial infarction (MI). However there are conflicting data showing no relationship between the ACE genotype and coronary artery disease. The present study was performed to investigate the correlation between(More)
