Continuing investigations of abdominal body wall reconstruction materials suggest that unacceptable implant complications continue and that the ideal material has not yet been found. This pilot study compared xenogeneic (porcine) small intestine submucosa (SIS) with polypropylene mesh (PPM) for repair of created partial-thickness (six dogs) and(More)
In an experimental study in dogs of the anterior tibial compartment syndrome, three measurements were taken before, during, and following raising pressure in the compartment: blood flow, muscle function, and peroneal nerve conduction. If fasciotomy was performed within 4 hours, peroneal nerve conduction velocity always returned to normal regardless of(More)
A microcomputer system was developed which allows the user to draw the contour of a burn on a diagram on the computer screen. The per cent body surface area is then determined by direct area measurement by the computer. A total of 148 weekly burn diagrams ranging from 1% to 71% (mean, 23.7%) body surface area burn in 59 patients were analyzed using this(More)
Traditionally a vectorising compiler matches the iterative constructs of a program against a set of predeened templates. If a loop contains no dependency cycles then a map template can be used; other simple dependencies can often be expressed in terms of fold or scan templates. This paper addresses the template matching problem within the context of(More)
Incorporating imperative features into a purely functional language has become an active area of research within the functional programming community 10, 7, 12]. One of the techniques gaining widespread acceptance as a model for imperative functional programming is monads 13, 9]. The purpose of this technical report is to give a category theoretic(More)
An extensive, laryngeal tumor was identified in a nine-year-old, spayed female, mixed-breed dog. Clinical staging of the tumor included computed tomography. Six days prior to surgery, a percutaneous gastrostomy tube was placed under endoscopic guidance. Surgical treatment included total laryngectomy and permanent tracheostomy. The histologic diagnosis of(More)
