A kind of plasmonic open waveguide, which is a periodic subwavelength metallic Domino array, is investigated both theoretically and experimentally in this paper. Based on the guiding mechanism of spoof surface plasmon polaritions (spoof SPPs), the transmission properties of this waveguide are controllable by altering the geometric parameters of the periodic(More)
Bilateral simultaneous transaxillary sympathectomies (BSTS) were established in order to achieve a one-stage transaxillary sympathectomy in the treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis. The features of the BSTS were the patient's supine operative position, parapectoral incision, and bilateral simultaneous procedures. BSTS were safely performed on 60 patients(More)

Between 1986 and 1991, 16 selected patients with calculous biliary tract disease (CBTD) underwent side-to-side choledochoduodenostomy (CDS) as an adjunct to either primary (10 patients) or secondary (six patients) choledocholithotomy. Patients selected for adjunctive CDS were those with common bile duct dilatation > or = 1.5 cm in size. All operations were(More)
