Intraoperative angiography in cerebrovascular neurosurgery can drive the repositioning or addition of aneurysm clips. Our institution has switched from a strategy of intraoperative digital subtraction angiography (DSA) universally, to a strategy of indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography with DSA on an as-needed basis. We retrospectively evaluated whether(More)
Application of fertilizer N doses to rice (Oryza sativa L.) whenever leaf greenness as measured by chlorophyll meter (SPAD) and LCC falls below a fixed threshold is being extensively used for site-specific management of fertilizer N. As fixed threshold greenness varies with regions, rice cultivars and seasons, a dynamic threshold greenness concept in the(More)
OBJECT The successful treatment of an intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVF) requires complete obliteration of blood flow through the fistulous point. Surgical ligation is often used along with endovascular techniques. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) can be used to confirm fistula obliteration; however, this technique can be cumbersome(More)
An optical sensor-based fertilizer nitrogen (N) management strategy that relies on visible and near-infrared spectral response from plant canopies was evaluated for irrigated wheat in the northwestern India. GreenSeeker™ optical sensor-guided fertilizer N dose, computed from an estimate of potential yield and response index, takes into account both the(More)
BACKGROUND The preliminary results of a prospective consecutive series of 20 patients who underwent Enterprise-assisted recanalization for acute ischemic stroke were recently reported. Recanalization to thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) grade 2 (n = 6) or 3 (n = 12) flow was achieved in 18 patients (90% revascularization rate). Good outcome(More)
Blanket fertilizer nitrogen (N) recommendations for large irrigated transplanted rice tracts lead to low N use-efficiency (NUE) due to field-to-field variability in soil N supply and seasonal variability in yield. To achieve high NUE, a fertilizer N management strategy based on visible and near-infrared spectral response from plant canopies using a(More)
Bagasse ash (BA) and rice husk ash (RHA) contain significant quantities of P and many other nutrients. Application of biomass ashes has been shown to improve crop yields and soil properties. The present experiment was conducted to determine the effect of BA and RHA application in combination with different doses of P fertilizer on soil enzyme activities in(More)
OBJECT Isthmic spondylolysis can significantly decrease functional abilities, especially in adolescent athletes. Although treatment can range from observation to surgery, direct screw placement through the fractured pars, or Buck's procedure, may be a more minimally invasive procedure than the more common pedicle screw-hook construct. METHODS Review of(More)
In the Indo-Gangetic plain in South Asia, fertilizer nitrogen (N) application to irrigated wheat in two split doses at planting and at crown root initiation (CRI) stages of the crop is the general recommendation. Farmers have a tendency to apply another dose of N at maximum tillering (MT) stage to avoid the risk of N deficiency. However, appropriate(More)
