A series of ten patients is presented to demonstrate the use of the distally based posterior tibial island flap with or without a muscle component for reconstruction of the foot. Six patients had defects due to a road traffic accident, two had defects due to a work accident, one had extensive scar contractures after a deep burn and advanced Buerger’s(More)
Instituto de Radioproteção e Dosimetria, a Brazilian government research institute, provides individual monitoring services since 1972. Its dosemeters are: film-based thorax for whole body photons, thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD) albedo for whole body neutrons and TLD ring for extremity photons. About 6000 radiation workers are currently being monitored(More)
Neutron individual monitoring is considerably less established than photon individual monitoring. The main difficulty is the impossibility to find a detector that covers the large occupational neutron energy range. All commercial individual monitors have strong energy dependence. Another difficulty is to calibrate an individual neutron monitor in the ISO(More)
Inspired by dengue and yellow fever epidemics, we investigated the contact process (CP) in a multiscale network constituted by one-dimensional chains connected through a Barabási-Albert scale-free network. In addition to the CP dynamics inside the chains, the exchange of individuals between connected chains (travels) occurs at a constant rate. A finite(More)
Congenital abnormalities not related to the fusion site are observed in 10% to 20% of cases of conjoined twins. Diaphragmatic hernia such as the one observed in the present case is one of the described findings. Upper eyelid coloboma that was also identified in the present case is considered to be a rare abnormality. Thus, the correct determination of the(More)
