BACKGROUND The optimal treatment of chronic pilonidal sinus is a matter of debate. Although excision and suture offers faster healing, it is associated with an increased incidence of wound infection. This study compared excision and primary closure of pilonidal sinus using incorporated gentamicin impregnated collagen with conventional laying open. METHODS(More)
Samples of the toxic Brazilian plant, Baccharis coridifolia, which is responsible for numerous cases of livestock poisoning in southern Brazil and Argentina, were collected during the growing season, and the toxicities in calves of the plant materials were correlated with the levels of macrocyclic trichothecenes present. Female plants in flower were(More)

AIM   In spite of recent advances in technology and technique, laparoscopic colorectal surgery is associated with increased operating times when compared with open surgery. This increases the risk of acute lower limb compartment syndrome. The aim of this review was to gain a better understanding of postoperative lower limb compartment syndrome following(More)
Cryptographic hash functions are at the heart of many information security applications like digital signatures, message authentication codes (MACs), and other forms of authentication. In consequence of recent innovations in cryptanalysis of commonly used hash algorithms, NIST USA announced a publicly open competition for selection of new standard Secure(More)
BACKGROUND Necrotising Fasciitis is a life threatening soft tissue infection which requires aggressive, early surgical management. CASE PRESENTATION We present a rare case of a retroperitoneal perforation of a carcinoma of the caecum presenting as a necrotising fasciitis of the anterior abdominal wall. CONCLUSION This case highlights the importance of(More)
AIM In contrast to females, male faecal incontinence has received little attention. We investigate its pattern and management at a large UK teaching hospital. METHODS Men presenting with faecal incontinence between January 2006 and December 2008 were identified from a gastrointestinal physiology database and classified into faecal leakage or faecal(More)
We propose high speed architecture for Keccak using Look-Up Table (LUT) resources on FPGAs, to minimize area of Keccak data path and to reduce critical path lengths. This approach allows us to design Keccak data path with minimum resources and higher clock frequencies. We show our results in the form of chip area consumption, throughput and throughput per(More)
—Logistic functions are good models of biological population growth. They are also popular in marketing in modelling demand-supply curves and in a different context, to chart the sales of new products over time. Delays being inherent in any biological system, we seek to analyse the effect of delays on the growth of populations governed by the logistic(More)
Objective: To investigate the impact of symptom onset to first medical contact (SO-to-FMC)time on the prognosis of patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction(STEMI). Methods: The clinical data of 341 consecutive STEMI patients, who were hospitalized to our hospital and received primary percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI) from August(More)
