PURPOSE The aim of this multicenter study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction by use of the Ligament Advanced Reinforcement System (LARS) artificial ligament (Surgical Implants and Devices, Arc-sur-Tille, France) with 3- to 5-year follow-up. METHODS From August 2004 to July 2006, 159 patients with ACL(More)
Plant root hairs are believed to be very important for phosphorus (P) uptake from the soil by expanding the absorptive surface area of the root and increasing the soil volume explored by the roots, but genetic information about root hair traits in soybean is relatively scarce. In the present study, two contrasting genotypes of soybean (Glycine max and(More)
The optimized graft for use in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is still in controversy. The bone–patellar tendon–bone (BPTB) autograft has been accepted as the gold standard for ACL reconstruction. However, donor site morbidities cannot be avoided after this treatment. The artificial ligament of ligament advanced reinforcement system (LARS)(More)
The classification accuracy of the least squares support vector machine (LSSVM) models strongly depends on proper setting of its parameters. An optimal selection approach of LSSVM parameters is put forward based on multi-swarm cooperative chaos particle swarm optimization (MCCPSO) algorithm. Chaos particle swarm optimization (CPSO) can improve the ability(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical effect of minimally invasive internal fixation percutaneous plate osteosynthesis (MIPPO) assisted by arthroscopy on tibial plateau fractures. METHODS From September 2005 to December 2007, 29 patients with tibial plateau fracture underwent arthroscopy-assisted MIPPO, including 18 males and 11 females aged 18-59 years(More)
The paper presents a novel WTB controller design method using SOPC (system on programmable chip) technology. The WTB Access IP (intellectual property), which is designed in Verilog HDL (hardware description language), achieves the function of encoding, decoding, FCS (frame check sequence) and bit stuffing. Finally the CPU and WTB controller are combined(More)
A MVB (multifunction vehicle bus) controller using SOPC (system-on-a-programmable-chip) technology is presented in this paper. The SOPC technology, developed by Altera Corporation, consists of a FPGA (field programmable gate array) and a Nios embedded processor. The MVB access IP (intellectual property), which is designed in Verilog HDL (hardware(More)
