OBJECTIVE To discuss the experience of combining extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) with intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) for the treatment of acute heart failure in critically ill adults. METHODS The clinical data of 54 patients who received ECMO combined with IABP due to acute heart failure between January 2008 and July 2012 were(More)
There has been a growing trend among shoe manufacturers to introduce customized shoes to satisfy varying customer style, fit, and comfort needs, thus to increase the product’s added value. This study presents a computer-aided design (CAD) system for designing a customized shoe last based on the chosen shoe style and customer’s foot features. The CAD system(More)
A novel approach is proposed in this paper for automatic forest fire detection from video. Based on 3D point cloud of the collected sample fire pixels, Gaussian mixture model is built and helps segment some possible flame regions in single image. Then the new specific flame pattern is defined for forest, and three types of fire colors are labeled(More)
In this paper, we propose a real-time forest fire detection algorithm using artificial neural networks based on dynamic characteristics of fire regions segmented from video images. Fire region is obtained from image with the help of threshold values in HSV color space. Area, roundness and contour are computed for fire regions from each 5 continuous frames.(More)
A novel and effective approach is proposed in this paper to detect smoke using transmission from image or video frame. Inspired by the airlightalbedo ambiguity model, we introduce the concept of transmission as a new essential feature of smoke, which is employed to detect the smoke and also determine its corresponding thickness distribution. First, we(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous fat transplantation has become a prevalent option for soft-tissue augmentation throughout the body. However, there is still much controversy over whether the fat grafts have survived or have been replaced in the recipient sites and over how the vessels grow. METHODS After C57BL/6-gfp mice and C57BL/6 mice were paired randomly, the(More)
BACKGROUND Adipose-derived stem cells can improve fat graft survival, but there is no literature reporting whether bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells enhance fat graft survival. The authors explored the feasibility of enhancing fat graft survival using bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. METHODS Third-passage expanded rabbit bone(More)
