We investigate the peaking phenomenon in the control of large-scale vehicular platoons. These systems are of considerable practical importance as they represent an example of systems on lattices in which different subsystems are dynamically coupled only through feedback controls. We demonstrate that imposing a uniform rate of convergence for all vehicles… (More)
•Ureteroarterial fistula (UAF) is a rare cause of massive hematuria.•Percutaneous retrograde ureteral stents via DBWC can be done safely in the compliant patient for improved comfort.•Understanding the anatomy, risks, and minimally invasive treatment options for UAF is important for prompt patient care.
•We describe bilateral groin reconstruction with a single anterolateral thigh flap.•Anatomy and surgical technique of the anterolateral thigh flap are discussed.
The potential applications of operative laparoscopy have expanded with improvements in technology and instrumentation. With newly developed techniques to complete both pelvic and paraaortic lymph node dissection, the use of the laparoscope has increased in patients with pelvic malignancies. Gynecologic oncologists are currently incorporating the techniques… (More)
