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)
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)
The role of a vectorising compiler for an imperative language is to transform the for-loops of a program into the vector instructions of a data-parallel machine. In a functional language, constant complexity map is the essence of data-parallelism, where a function is applied to every element of a data-structure all at the same time. As map can be considered(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)
