Diabetes is characterized by poor circulation and impaired angiogenesis, which appear to contribute to the frequent skin lesions and poor wound healing common in diabetic patients. Therapies to improve circulation commonly improve wound healing in diabetic patients. Administration of circulating CD34+ cells, cells that can function as endothelial cell(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Aspirin-sensitivity, asthma, and nasal polyposis (NP) comprise the clinical entity of Samter's triad. The aim of this study is to report the sinonasal outcomes of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) in treating NP in asthmatic patients, comparing aspirin-induced asthmatic (AIA) patients with aspirin-tolerant asthmatics (ATA). STUDY DESIGN(More)
An analysis of cases of hanging in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia over a period of five years is presented. Of 61 victims investigated there was a high incidence of suicidal hanging among expatriate males of lower socio-economic classes especially Asians, and in particular, Indians. Two distinct patterns of suicidal hanging were observed in this(More)
BACKGROUND Certain diseases affect both upper and lower airways. Aspirin-induced asthma (AIA) is a clinical entity characterized by asthma, nasal polyposis, and aspirin intolerance. To understand the response of the lower airway to surgical treatment of the sinuses, we examined asthma outcomes in AIA compared with a second group of aspirin-tolerant(More)
BACKGROUND Rhinoscleroma is a chronic granuloma that is endemic in Egypt and is caused by gram-negative bacilli (Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis). The nasal mucosa is affected in almost all cases, which causes nasal obstruction, anosmia, and epistaxis. The disease usually passes through an atrophic stage (atrophic rhinitis) and a granulomatous stage before(More)
IMPORTANCE The main objective in the treatment of chronic otitis media is to relieve drainage and to rehabilitate hearing. Various materials can be used to repair the tympanic membrane (TM) through different tympanoplasty techniques. OBJECTIVE To assess the results of endoscopic type I tympanoplasty in pediatric patients using tragal cartilage as a(More)
A study of all firearm fatalities in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia during the 10-year period from 1985 to 1994 is presented.

Most victims were young male Saudis; most were shot in the chest (41%) or the head(More)
To describe hypercholesterolemia in an urban community in Saudi Arabia, total serum cholesterol (TSC) was measured in 966 apparently healthy males (475 Saudi Arabs, 351 other Arabs and 140 non-Arabs) using a portable analyzer (Boehringer Model[R]). Mean age was 35.9 years (SD+/-9.1) and mean body mass index (BMI) was 26.2 kg/m(2) (SD+/-3.4) with a mean TSC(More)

They were randomly divided into(More)
Networked Control System (NCS) has recently been a hotspot in the research fields of control theory and control engineering application, where control system components (controller and controlled system or plant) are connected via a shared network. Taking a third-order DC motor as the plant and using the TrueTime toolbox in MATLAB, a NCS model is designed(More)
