Functional dependencies (FDs) typically represent associations over facts stored by a database, such as "patients with the same symptom get the same therapy." In more recent years, some extensions have been introduced to represent both temporal constraints (temporal functional dependencies - TFDs), as "for any given month, patients with the same symptom(More)
The fermentation of different sugars by Bacillus stearothermophilus ATCC 2027 to obtain 2,3-butanediol is described. Fermentation tests in shake flasks show the complete conversion of sucrose to butanediol (91% yield) and acetoin (3-hydroxy-2-butanone) using a starting sugar concentration of 30 g/L. A similar result is obtained with sugar cane molasses,(More)
Approximate functional dependencies, even with suitable temporal extensions, have been recently proposed as a methodological tool for mining clinical data. It allows healthcare stakeholders to derive new knowledge from overwhelming amount of healthcare and clinical data. Some examples of the kind of knowledge derivable from data through dependencies may be(More)
All-arthroscopic anchorless transosseous suture techniques combine the advantages of the open transosseous repair with the benefits of arthroscopic technique. However, all the techniques described until now are very complex, difficult to reproduce and associated with an increased surgical time. The authors developed a novel all-arthroscopic anchorless(More)
Mapping landslide activity in a highly anthropized area entails specific problems. The integration of different monitoring techniques in order to measure the displacements rate within the slope is mandatory. We describe our activity for the Mortisa landslide which is located on the western flank of the Cortina d’Ampezzo valley (northeastern Italy) in a(More)
An advanced SAR interferometric analysis has been combined with a methodology for the automatic classification of radar reflectors phase histories to interpret slope-failure kinematics and trend of displacements of slow-moving landslides. To accomplish this goal, the large dataset of radar images, acquired in more than 20 years by the two European Space(More)
BACKGROUND Contact pressure and contact area are among the most important mechanical factors studied to predict the effectiveness of a rotator cuff repair. The suture configurations can strongly affect these factors but are rarely correlated with each other. For example, there is a significant difference between the single-row technique and the transosseous(More)
