Text mining is a new and exciting area of computer science that tries to solve the crisis of information overload by combining techniques from data mining, machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, and knowledge management. The Text Mining Handbook presents a comprehensive discussion of the latest techniques in text mining and(More)
There has been considerable disagreement in descriptions of the SMAS. Fresh cadaver dissection, combining anatomic dissection done with the aid of the operating microscope and histologic cross section of facial tissues, was performed in 24 facial halves. Histologic preparation was made on tissue macrosections, each 10 cm in length. Consistent findings(More)
Records were reviewed for all patients who underwent primary treatment for adenocarcinoma of the stomach at two UCLA hospitals between 1956 and 1975. Division of the data into two, ten-year time periods reveals a pattern of unchanging presentation and pathologic characteristics which probably accounts for the unaltered response to operative therapy. The(More)
The quantitative and morphological characteristics of microbial adherence of four organisms--Staphylococcus epidermidis, S. aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans--to the surfaces of different breast prostheses were observed. Semiquantitative adherence studies based on a modification of Maki's roll culture technique even after short contact times(More)
Severe, work-related hand injuries are often accompanied by a significant number of psychological symptoms that are frequently associated with posttraumatic stress disorders. These symptoms occur in the following four domains of psychological functioning: cognitive, affective, physiological, and behavioral. This study examined the incidence of a variety of(More)
This study examined on-site work evaluations as an environmental exposure strategy to promote return to work in 15 recalcitrant patients who had failed to benefit from established methods of reducing post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. Following the on-site work evaluation, 87% of these patients were able to use visualisation of the work setting to(More)
We studied the vascular relationship of the lateral arm flap to triceps tendon and muscle in 16 dissected cadaver arms. We designed composite lateral arm free flaps containing fasciocutaneous components, triceps muscle, and/or triceps tendon. Vascular communication between the lateral arm fascia and triceps tendon was negligible. In contrast, a mean of 3.6(More)
Fifty-one patients with posttraumatic stress disorder after work-related hand injuries were placed on a graded work exposure program to facilitate return to work. These patients consisted of an initial group of 25 patients and a replication group of 26 patients. The program returned 92% of the initial group and 88% of the replicated group to work with their(More)
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome is comprised of a variety of changes in vasomotor and trophic responsivity, as well as, stiffness, edema and severe pain. This study examined 20 patients with reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome who had failed to respond to a variety of techniques commonly used to treat this disorder. These patients had documented(More)
A nasal splint ideally should be sturdy, moldable, light, easy to apply, and inconspicuous. Plaster, dental compound, and aluminum are currently used but each has limitations. We have found that Aquaplast, a material softened by immersion in hot water, more closely conforms to the qualities of the ideal nasal splint. Aquaplast is sturdy, light, thin, very(More)
