Toxoplasmosis is considered as an important risk factor for bad obstetric history (BOH) and one of the major causes of congenitally acquired infections. The present study aimed to estimate the seropositivity of T. gondii infection and associated risk factors among the attendees of high risk pregnancy and low risk antenatal care clinic of Minia Maternity and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this trial was to compare the rates of patency achieved by cutting and conventional balloon angioplasty to treat hemodialysis access stenoses. METHODS End-stage renal failure patients (at three tertiary referral centers) with significant hemodialysis access stenoses were prospectively randomized to have percutaneous transluminal(More)
Presented in this paper is a tool that automatically migrates analog designs from one process to another while keeping circuit and layout topologies. A netlist migration engine recalculates the new device dimensions in the target technology followed by a layout migration engine that compacts the design according to the new process design rules. The overall(More)
BACKGROUND Hypotension is a common problem during spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery. Intravenous fluid loading is used to correct preoperative dehydration and reduce the incidence and severity of hypotension. Different fluid regimens have been studied but colloid preload and crystalloid co-load have not been compared. METHODS In this randomized(More)
until a few decades ago, face to face classrooms and hand-on laboratories were the common solution for teaching theory and practice. But, new e-Learning tools have emerged and learning methodologies such as blended and distance learning have taken an important space in learning initiatives. Among them are virtual and remote Labs which provide student with a(More)
Preprocedural spinal ultrasound appears to decrease the failure rate and complications of neuraxial anesthesia compared to the conventional landmark technique. It is especially beneficial in difficult cases where conventional palpation technique may fail. We recently encountered a parturient with multiple lumbar and cervical spinal metastatic lesions(More)
This paper describes the design, development and first results and impressions of a novel Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) on industrial electronics practices. This was possible by implementing a state-of–the-art remote laboratory within the MOOC to allow online delivery of such practices— which makes this MOOC a first of its kind. Thus, the core of the(More)
