This paper presents outcomes after 13, 4, and 3½ years in three digital amputees treated with osseointegrated prostheses. One had prosthetic replacement of the index and middle fingers at the PIP level. The second had four fingers replaced at the PIP level, but only three prostheses were retained. The third had a thumb replacement at the MCP level.(More)
Colour shift in tattoo pigment is a recognised complication of laser tattoo treatment. We report our experience over the past 4 years in treating 275 patients, with a total of 323 professional tattoos. Of these, 184 tattoos contained a pigment other than black with 33 displaying a colour shift as a consequence of laser treatment. This adverse effect was(More)
We show, for the first time, dense WDM (8×20  Gbit/s) transmission at 2 μm enabled by advanced modulation formats (4-ASK Fast-OFDM) and the development of key components, including a new arrayed waveguide grating (AWGr) at 2 μm. The AWGr shows -12.8±1.78  dB of excess loss with an 18-dB extinction ratio and a thermal tunability of 0.108 nm/°C.
We report on the first InP-based Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) employing quantum-confined Stark effect (QCSE) for operation around 2000 nm. The polarization sensitive device is based on 15 compressively strained quantum wells and achieves an electro-optic (EO) bandwidth of at least 9 GHz, with a DC extinction ratio of ~9 dB, and a V(π)L ~9.6 V.mm. We(More)
Traditional silicone prostheses have been found to be inflexible, heavy, and of poor color match when used on the limbs. Ten patients distressed by contour deformities on their limbs after the wide excision of malignancies or following trauma were fitted with a light-weight prosthesis whose special features include a flexible foam backing, an outer tinted(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Resection of the ulnar head (Darrach procedure) is still frequently performed in patients suffering from posttraumatic osteoarthritis of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ). Ulnar impingement syndrome is sometimes observed with subsequent poor functional outcome. Here, we present a long-term follow-up study after Darrach procedure to(More)
