Industrial organizations use Energy Management Systems (EMS) to monitor, control, and optimize their energy consumption. Industrial EMS are complex and expensive systems due to the unique requirements of performance, reliability, and interoperability. Moreover, industry is facing challenges with current EMS implementations such as cross-site monitoring of(More)
INTRODUCTION The main purpose of this article is to highlight free tissue transfers as the first-choice method for three-dimensional (3D) maxillary reconstruction, particularly in providing enough bone for palate and maxillary arch reconstruction and consequently an implant-retained prosthesis. To achieve this, the myosseous free iliac crest was selected(More)
The defect complexity and reconstructive options make the maxillary reconstruction a controversial theme and in a constant debate. The maxilla is a fundamental aesthetic and functional structure of the face. Microsurgical vascularized flaps replaced the usage of prosthetic material and pedicled flaps as a “gold standard” for the reconstruction of complex(More)
Bone structure is fundamental for the function of the lower limbs—orthostatism and locomotion. Before the technical evolution observed in the last two decades, many extremities that are saved now were amputated in the past. Lower limb bone defects are generally associated with complex traumatic lesions and constitute a permanent reconstructive challenge.(More)
A BSS patient, 20 years old, male, presented at the E.R. after an accident at work with traumatic slough of the left hand (crushing injury by hydraulic splitter of firewood). During physical examination, the patient presented hemodynamic stability with injury of the palmar region of the left hand with signs of devascularization of the second and third(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignant neoplasm, arising from glandular tissues, found mainly in the head and neck. Generally, it presents insidiously but can behave aggressively making its course unpredictable. Surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy continue to be the cornerstone for its treatment. ACC remains extremely difficult to treat. The(More)
