This paper addresses culturally rooted factors within user interface design. The design implications of globalisation are discussed, together with the related processes of internationalisation, localisation, 'glocalisation', iconisation and culturalisation, in order to establish a basis for a new approach to HCI design. The potential for a more diverse(More)
During the past 40 years, the survival of patients with esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula has increased from zero to approximately 85 percent. With the increased survival rate, the surgeon has the opportunity to follow up the patient into adult life. By so doing, the early and late complications can be anticipated and treated appropriately.
Between January 1977 and December 1979 (three years), 642 appendectomies were performed at the Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles.

Using known incidence of appendicitis, approximately 54 cases of acute appendicitis may have been(More)
One hundred and two patients with esophageal atresia possessed 237 additional anomalies. Risk grouping of these patients was useful and showed a direct relationship between the increased incidence of anomalies, low birth weight, and nonsurvival. Fifty-seven per cent of the patients with additional anomalies possessed multiple anomalies, most frequently(More)
