Prophylactic ureteric stenting has been shown to reduce ureteric leaks and collecting system obstruction following renal transplantation and is in widespread use. However, the optimal time for removal of ureteric stents after renal transplantation remains unclear. Aim of this study was to compare the result of early versus late removal of ureteric stents… (More)
This paper proposes a Hardware Transactional Memory (HTM) design for multi-core environments. Using a novel technique to keep track of transactional read-write entries, the design provides a holistic and scalable solution to Transactional Memory (TM) implementation issues of context switching, process migration and overflow handling. Another aspect of the… (More)
Cryoglobulinemia is an uncommon cause of renal disease and often occurs in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We report a case of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis in a patient with cryoglobulinemia, which was not associated with HCV infection or any identifiable etiology.
