There is a wide variety of congenital anomalies that may affect the gastrointestinal tract. Most symptomatic congenital anomalies are found in newborns and infants. Such anomalies are relatively rare in adolescents and adults, and they may be difficult to identify because clinical symptoms often are nonspecific and insidious, causing them to be mistaken for(More)
Although the vast majority of gastrointestinal (GI) masses are epithelial neoplasms, a variety of subepithelial masses are infrequently encountered during endoscopic or radiologic examination. A subepithelial mass, which was previously called a submucosal mass, is defined as a mass covered with normal-appearing mucosa, whether the underlying process is(More)
Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) is a well established method for the evaluation of intracranial diseases, such as acute stroke. DWI for extracranial application is more difficult due to physiological motion artifacts and the heterogeneous composition of the organs. However, thanks to the newer technical development of DWI, DWI has become(More)
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a potentially life threatening condition, and it remains the leading cause of maternal morbidity. Uterine atony, lower genital tract lacerations, uterine rupture or inversion, retained products of conception and underlying coagulopathy are some of the common causes of PPH. Most conditions can be diagnosed based on clinical and(More)
PURPOSE Accumulating evidence has shown a close connection between hematopoiesis and bone formation. Our aim was to evaluate the association between peripheral blood cell counts and bone mineral density (BMD) in a sample of postmenopausal women. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three hundreds thirty eight healthy postmenopausal women who underwent BMD measurement(More)
We consider a control volume(covolume) method for second order elliptic PDEs with the rotated-Q1 nonconforming finite element on rectangular grids. The coefficient κ may a variable, diagonal tensor, or discontinuous. We prove first order convergence in H1 norm and second order convergence in L2 norm when the partition is square. Our numerical experiments(More)
