AIMS At specific time periods following ischemic stroke (IS), acute coronary syndrome as ischemic heart disease (IHD) represents a higher risk of death than IS. Not all IS patients can undergo specific examination for IHD detection. The aim of this study was to assess exclusive risk factors (RFs) associated with IHD occurrence in IS patients.

This paper elaborates on a possibility to detect the spoofing in a large network peering with other networks. A proposed detection scheme is based on an analysis of(More)
