Based on a linear ordering of vertices in a directed graph, a linear-time partitioning algorithm for parallel logic simulation is presented. Unlike most other partitioning algorithms, the proposed algorithm preserves circuit concurrency by assigning to processors circuit gates that can be evaluated at about the same time. As a result, the concurrency(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of unstable thoracolumbar fractures is controversial regarding short or long segment pedicle screw fixation. Although long level fixation is better, it can decrease one motion segment distally, thus increasing load to lower discs. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 31 unstable thoracolumbar fractures with partial or intact neurology.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) eye drops in the treatment of recurrent corneal erosions (RCE). METHODS A total of 47 eyes were included in this retrospective study. Clinical records of 20 consecutive patients with RCE who had been treated with conventional lubricant eye drops (conventional treatment group) from June 2006 to(More)
Purpose. To evaluate surgical efficacy of in situ refixation technique for dislocated posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL). Methods. This was a single-center retrospective case series. 34 patients (34 eyes) who underwent sclera fixation for dislocated IOLs combined with vitrectomy were studied. Of 34 eyes, 17 eyes underwent IOL exchange and the other(More)
Inhibition of osteoclast differentiation and bone resorption is a therapeutic strategy for the management of postmenopausal bone loss. This study investigated the effects of Rhus javanica (R. javanica) extracts on bone marrow cultures to develop agents from natural sources that may prevent osteoclastogenesis. Extracts of R. javanica (eGr) cocoons spun by(More)
The aim of this article is to evaluate and classify pathogenetic origins based on morphologic reproliferative patterns in patients who underwent pterygium excision with a conjunctival autograft. In this retrospective, observational case series, a total of 116 eyes of 116 patients with pterygium who underwent pterygium excision with a conjunctival autograft(More)
Dear Editor, Although wasp stings are common environmental injuries , those regarding the eye are rare. Symptoms vary from mild hyperemia to sight-threatening complications [1-4]. Wasp stings to the eye lead to a mechanical insult caused by stinger penetration, resultant toxicity, and an immune response [1]. A few reports have documented ocular inflammation(More)
Purpose. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of dried human amniotic membrane (AM) in reducing the postoperative inflammatory response and scarring after strabismus surgery. Methods. The inflammatory response at the extraocular muscle reattachment site was analyzed after superior rectus (SR) resection in 12 rabbits. Dried human AM(More)
