The diagnosis is challenging due to the nonspecific signs and symptoms as well as the rarity of the disease. We present an unusual case of a young girl presenting with an enlarging pulmonary mass(More)
This paper is concerned with the performance optimization of the multi-pump Distributed Raman Amplifier (DRA) for S-band in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) systems. A special fiber with minimum loss at the water peak is used as medium gain in different pumping schemes. Comparing the results of multi optimization methods for gain ripple decrement(More)
INTRODUCTION Benign inflammatory fibroid polyps (IFP) are rare submucosal tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Rarely, they can develop in the esophagus, usually in the lower third. There are only 12 cases of giant IFP of the esophagus reported in literature and little is known about their origin, biological behavior and operative management. We(More)

Historically, surgical approaches have been dictated by the location of the tumor and its relation to the contiguous structures such as the vertebral bodies, subclavian vessels, and chest wall. Resection is hampered by difficulties with visualization and access within a(More)
BACKGROUND A complete Cox maze IV procedure is difficult to accomplish using current endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques. These techniques are hampered by inability to adequately dissect the posterior structures of the heart and place all necessary lesions. We present a novel approach, using robotic technology, that achieves placement of all the(More)
