This paper presents a general ring oscillator circuit to-pology for high speed operation, multiphase output and wide range tuning. The topology use sub-feedback inverters to construct fast loop for long chain ring oscillator to achieve high speed. The operating frequency of the ring oscillator is directly proportional to the transconductance (G,) of(More)
This paper presents the design consideration of high order digital AZ modulators used as modulus controller for fractional-N frequency synthesizer. A third-order MASH structure (MASH 1-2) is designed and implemented which allows for the input to operate over 75% of the input adder capacity. The number of the output levels is reduced to two bits. The circuit(More)
Excessive activation of the transforming growth factor beta signaling pathway and disorganized cellular skeleton caused by genetic mutations are known to be responsible for the inherited thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD), a life-threatening vascular disease. To investigate the genotype–phenotype correlation, we screened genetic mutations of(More)
Severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB) are often associated with a higher mortality. The efficacy and safety of the preoperative prophylactic intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) insertion is not well established. 416 consecutive patients with severe LV dysfunction (ejection fraction ≤35%)(More)
Power supply for medical implantable devices (i.e. pacemaker) always challenges not only the surgery but also the battery technology. Here, we report a strategy for energy harvesting from the heart motion by using ultra-flexible piezoelectric device based on lead zirconate titanate (PZT) ceramics that has most excellent piezoelectricity in commercial(More)
BACKGROUND Hypoxemia is a severe perioperative complication that can substantially increase intensive care unit and hospital stay and mortality. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of non-invasive positive-pressure ventilation (NIPPV) in patients with hypoxemia after surgery for Stanford type A aortic dissection, and to compare the effects of(More)
OBJECTIVE Many studies have addressed the diagnostic performance of echocardiography to evaluate acute cardiac allograft rejection compared with endomyocardial biopsy. But the existence of heterogeneity limited its clinical application. Thus, we conducted a comprehensive, systematic literature review and meta-analysis for the purpose. METHODS Studies(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the present study was to evaluate short- and mid-term outcomes of the left subclavian artery (LSA) chimney stent implantation (LSACSI) during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), and to summarize our experience with this technique. METHODS From June 2010 to September 2012, 59 patients (49 men; mean age of 57.4 ± 13.3(More)
