An M/MMGI/1/K queuing model is developed for the analysis of IEEE 802.11 DCF using RTS/CTS. Results are based on arbitrary contention conditions, namely, collision probabilities, transmission probabilities and contention window sizes vary arbitrarily among nodes contending for channel access. This is fundamentally different from earlier work. Results are(More)
In this paper, two Markov chain queuing models have been developed to obtain closed-form solutions for packet delay and packet throughput distributions in a real-time wireless communication environment using IEEE 802.11 DCF. An M/G/1/K queuing model is incorporated in both models. In the first model results are based on arbitrary contention conditions,(More)
Hidden nodes are a basic problem that can potentially influence any multi-hop wireless networks where nodes cannot hear each other. Even though the hidden node problem is well known, its effects have not been quantified so well in a comprehensive manner up to now. This paper presents a novel framework for the queuing analysis towards getting a quantitative(More)
A 42-year-old-man presented with generalized inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus with concomitant psoriasis vulgaris. Because of unresponsiveness of the conventional treatment, we considered treatment with adalimumab. Adalimumab was well tolerated and no side effects were observed. Adalimumab has a limited effect in treating ILVEN lesions.(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to determine the short- and long-term effects of proximal aortic anastomosis, performed during isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with dilatation of the ascending aorta who did not require surgical intervention. METHODS The study was performed on 192 (38 female and 160 male patients; mean age,(More)
BACKGROUND Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a systemic disease that can present with cutaneous lesions with or without internal involvement, mostly caused by infection with human herpesvirus-8. The treatment options include surgical excision, cryotherapy, radiotherapy, intralesional chemotherapy, laser, and elastic stockings for the prevention of lymphedema. (More)
BACKGROUND Recalcitrant facial verruca plana (FVP) may persist for years and full remission is not always achieved with conventional therapies. The clinical success rates reported for different lasers are highly variable and only one study evaluated the Er:YAG laser for the treatment of FVP. OBJECTIVE To determine whether Er:YAG is safe and effective for(More)
