Prognostic factors studied(More)
As the Internet grows in scale and complexity, the need for accurate traffic measurement increases. Among the different parameters relevant to traffic measurement, the paper pays attention to the available bandwidth of a path. In particular , a performance comparison of three different techniques, devoted to available bandwidth measurement, is attained(More)
Spinal Myoclonus (SM) is characterized by brief and sudden movements caused by the activation of muscles belonging to adjacent spinal myotomes.

BACKGROUND The site of dystonia onset is known to affect the risk of spread in primary adult-onset focal dystonia, but other factors possibly influencing spread are unknown. This study explored the relationship between age and spread of dystonia in primary adult-onset focal dystonia. METHODS Two survival models analyzed spread of dystonia in a large(More)
