BACKGROUND Renal insufficiency is an established risk factor in patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery. We sought to evaluate the relationship between renal function and outcomes after orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT). METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of 622 adults who underwent 628 consecutive OHTs between 1994 and 2001 at our(More)
In this paper, we propose a numerical scheme which is almost second-order spatial accurate for a one-dimensional singularly perturbed parabolic convection-diffusion problem exhibiting a regular boundary layer. The proposed numerical scheme consists of classical backward-Euler method for the time discretization and a hybrid finite difference scheme for the(More)
This paper deals with the study of a post-processing technique for one-dimensional singularly perturbed parabolic convection–diffusion problems exhibiting a regular boundary layer. For discretizing the time derivative, we use the classical backward-Euler method and for the spatial discretization the simple upwind scheme is used on a piecewise-uniform(More)
Stress shielding-induced bone resorption around cementless acetabular components has been indicated as a potential failure mechanism that may threaten long-term fixation. Using a bone remodelling algorithm in combination with three-dimensional finite element models of intact and implanted pelvises and musculoskeletal loading during normal walking, the(More)
Fixation of uncemented implant is influenced by peri-prosthetic bone ingrowth, which is dependent on the mechanical environment of the implant-bone structure. The objective of the study is to gain an insight into the tissue differentiation around an acetabular component. A mapping framework has been developed to simulate appropriate mechanical environment(More)
Acquired left ventricular-to-right atrial communication is encountered periodically. This condition is chiefly attributable to surgical mishaps, trauma, endocarditis, or endomyocardial biopsy. In a few instances, a Gerbode-like defect develops after the repair of an atrioventricular septal defect. Our search of the worldwide medical literature revealed just(More)
Angiography in a 14-year-old boy with cyanosis since birth confirmed the diagnosis of tetralogy of Fallot with a subaortic ventricular septal defect, large overriding aorta, severe pulmonary stenosis, and a large collateral arising from the left circumflex artery. The collateral was isolated and ligated at its origin, and the patient underwent an uneventful(More)
OBJECTIVE We tested the hypothesis that duration of donor brain injury and death would have an adverse effect on recipient rejection and mortality in pediatric heart transplantation. METHODS Ninety-three cardiac transplants were performed at our center from July 1, 1997, through June 30, 2003. The primary study end points were the number of rejection(More)
Primary chest wall tumours are very rare. Chondrosarcoma is the most common tumour arising from the chest wall. We describe the occurrence of a slow-growing chondrosarcoma arising from the anterior chest wall in a 35-year-old male patient. The tumour was resected successfully and chest wall was reconstucted with prolene mesh and muscle flap. The patient was(More)
Hydatid disease in human beings, as in all intermediate hosts, manifest as hydatid cyst (HC). It is an important cyclozoonotic disease, endemic in various sheep and cattle raising areas of the world, including India. The tapeworm commonly involved is Echinococcus granulosus. HC can occur almost anywhere in the body, most common organs being liver and lungs,(More)
