OBJECTIVE To evaluate the anatomic features of a modified temporal-occipital transtentorial transpetrosal-ridge approach versus the conventional approach for surgery of petroclival tumors. METHODS The conventional transpetrosal presigmoid approach or the modified temporal-occipital transtentorial transpetrosal-ridge approach was performed on different(More)
In Rechargeable Wireless Sensor Networks (R-WSNs), in order to achieve the maximum data collection rate it is critical that sensors operate in very low duty cycles because of the sporadic availability of energy. A sensor has to stay in a dormant state in most of the time in order to recharge the battery and use the energy prudently. In addition, a sensor(More)
OBJECTIVES Chinese county hospitals have been excessively enlarging their scale during the healthcare reform since 2009. The purpose of this paper is to examine the technical efficiency and productivity of county hospitals during the reform process, and to determine whether, and how, efficiency is affected by various factors. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS 114(More)
OBJECTIVE Township hospitals (THs) are important components of the three-tier rural healthcare system of China. However, the efficiency and productivity of THs have been questioned since the healthcare reform was implemented in 2009. The objective of this study is to analyse the efficiency and productivity changes in THs before and after the reform process.(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o In this paper, a routing protocol for k-anycast communication based upon the anycast tree scheme is proposed for wireless sensor networks. Multiple-metrics are utilized for instructing the route discovery. A source initiates to create a spanning tree reaching any one sink with source node as the root. Subsequently, we introduce three(More)
The accumulator can store the energy in high capacity, and the super capacitor can charge and discharge in high power. The mixed power source composed by the accumulator and super capacitor not only has the characteristics for both of them but also meets the high-power requirement of high capacity and peak value. How to perform the equalizing charging for(More)
A novel heterostructure was first synthesized by directly depositing photocatalytic inert ZnO2 onto facet {201} of brookite nanorods. The heterostructure thus obtained was found to show a superior photocatalytic activity under UV-light irradiation. The exceptional photocatalytic performance was due to the band-structure match between ZnO2 and brookite as(More)
