A complete gait analysis was performed on six children with below-knee amputations to determine the kinematics and kinetics of amputee gait in children. A relatively new method of analysis--the inverse dynamic relationship--was used to determine the joint moments in the sagittal plane of the joints in the intact limb and the remaining portion of the(More)
Swine have become the preeminent non-human animal model for testing of cardiac assistance devices. Such devices must be robust to perturbations in the EKG; therefore it is expeditious, as part of cardiac assistance device testing, to simulate arrhythmias such as atrial flutter and fibrillation in swine. Methods for producing atrial tachyarrythmias include(More)
Neoral is an improved formulation of cyclosporine which, through microemulsion technology, provides a more consistent rate of absorption and exposure. If patients are able to take less Neoral and still maintain the same cyclosporine level, there will also be a cost savings involved. A dose reduction of 30% yields pharmacoeconomic savings. With a more(More)
The crystalline and magnetic structures of the YCo3-H D system have been investigated by means of x-ray and neutron diffraction with the objective of understanding the complex magnetic changes that are observed in this system as hydrogen is added. Synchrotron x-ray diffraction XRD patterns were first refined to yield the lattice parameters and coordination(More)
Between June 1969 and August I970, 8o patients, aged 22 to 63 years, had lone aortic valve replacement with frame-mounted autologous fascia lata. The operative mortality was 3.8 per cent. Seventy-seven survivors have been followed for 3 to 4 years and 50 have had postoperative investigation. There have been 8 subsequent deaths, 3 from infective(More)

This paper reports investigations into the influence of hydrogen on the magnetic properties of the YCo3-H system. We report results on the magnetic structure and magnetic transitions of YCo3 using a combination of neutron powder diffraction measurements and first-principles full potential augmented plane wave + local orbital calculations under the(More)
