BACKGROUND Glomerular hyperfiltration commonly associated with obesity is expected to improve postbariatric surgery. However, formula-based glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimation in these patients is limited by body size confounders necessitating use of modified equations, the reliability of which remains uncertain. METHODS In this study, various(More)
PURPOSE Maintaining target hemoglobin (Hb) with minimal variability is a challenge in hemodialysis (HD) patients. The aim of this study is to compare the long- and short-acting erythropoietin-stimulating agents such as Aranesp and Eprex in achieving these targets. METHODS Randomized, prospective, open-labeled study of 24 weeks includes stable patients on(More)
The next generation of digital subscriber line (DSL) standard will require the development of enabling technologies to exploit currently unused higher frequencies in the very and ultra high frequency bands over a shorter copper drop. At these higher frequencies, the indirect channels produced by the electromagnetic coupling (EMC) between pairs in a binder(More)
Raised levels of the cardiac biomarker, Troponin I, are frequently encountered in hemodialysis patients and appear to be prognostic indicators for cardiovascular risk. Though evidence suggests that control of secondary hyperparathyroidism may reduce cardiac endpoints, the effect of the calcimimetic agent, cinacalcet, remains controversial. This(More)
In this paper, the performance analysis of a full-duplex maximum ratio combining multiple-input multiple-output (FD-MRC-MIMO) system based on equalize-and-forward (EF) relaying with self-interference-cancellation (SIC) is derived under imperfect channels state information (CSI). The performance of the system is investigated in the presence of additive white(More)
In this paper, we propose and analyse the performance of the full-duplex multiple-input multiple-output singular value decomposition (FD-MIMO-SVD) based relay with self-interference-cancellation (SIC). The effects of channel estimation errors for the source-to-relay and self-interference channels are considered. The performance of the system is investigated(More)
