BACKGROUND Pretreatment is not the most common strategy practiced for clopidogrel administration in elective coronary stenting. Moreover, limited information is available on the antiplatelet pharmacodynamics of a 300-mg versus a 600-mg clopidogrel loading dose, and the comparative effect of eptifibatide with these regimens is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the relation of high ex vivo platelet reactivity, rapid fibrin generation, and high thrombin-induced clot strength to postdischarge ischemic events in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND High platelet reactivity and rapid fibrin generation may affect the incidence of ischemic events after(More)
Datacube queries compute aggregates over database relations at a variety of granularities. Often one wants only datacube output tuples whose aggregate value satisfies a certain condition, such as exceeding a given threshold. We develop algorithms for processing a datacube query using the selection condition internally during the computation. Thus, we can(More)
In this paper we describe an ongoing research project called the Columbia Digital News System. The goal of this project is to develop a suite of eeective interoperable tools with which people can nd relevant information (text, images, video, and structured documents) from distributed sources and track it over a period of time. Our initial focus is on the(More)
Existing datacube precomputation schemes materialize selected datacube tuples on disk, choosing the most beneficial cuboids (i.e., combinations of dimensions) to materialize given a space limit. However, in the context of a data-warehouse receiving frequent " append " updates to the database, the cost of keeping these disk-resident cuboids up-to-date can be(More)
Large organizations have a multitude of data sources across the enterprise and want to obtain business value from all of them. While the majority of these data sources may be consolidated in an enterprise data warehouse, many business units have their own data marts where analysis is carried out against data stored in multidimensional data structures. It is(More)
Video game crash events are characterized primarily by large media payloads and by highly bursty traffic patterns, with hundreds of thousands or millions of reports being issued in only a few minutes. These events are invaluable in quickly responding to game breaking issues that directly impact user experience. Even the slightest delay in capturing,(More)
