Commercial sugarbeet yields range between 50 and 100 t clean beets/ha, with sugar concentrations of 17 to 18% on fresh weight (8 to 18 t sugar/ha; Milford, 2006). For 2010, beet yields in the U.S. averaged 62.2 t/ha. However, in the Imperial Valley (predominant cattle feeding region for the state of California), clean beet yields averaged 98.8 t/ha (USDA,(More)
BACKGROUND Deep-venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are major causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with acute ischemic stroke. This study is the first to examine the risk of venous thromboembolism in patients with large hemispheric infarction undergoing decompressive hemicraniectomy. METHODS The study population included 95(More)
