Decreased perfusion and trauma during laparoscopic harvesting are proposed causative factors for DGF and rejection in children following renal transplantation with laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN) allograft. We performed a retrospective review of 11 children who underwent LDN transplant and 11 preceding patients who underwent ODN transplant.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the utility of routine follow-up computed tomography (CT) and/or ultrasound (US) scans in children with blunt hepatic trauma initially managed non-operatively. MATERIALS AND METHODS Review of the records of 66 children with proven blunt liver injury on initial CT scan, who were initially managed non-operatively during the period(More)
PURPOSE Nonoperative management of blunt hepatic injury (BHI) has become widely accepted in hemodynamically stable children without ongoing transfusion requirements. However, late hemorrhage, especially after discharge from the hospital can be devastating. The authors report the occurrence of serious late hemorrhage and the sentinel signs and symptoms in(More)
This study ranked the cost-effectiveness of health interventions in the metal working industry in a developing country. Data were based on 82 034 workers of the Northern region of Mexico. Effectiveness was measured through 'healthy life years' (HeaLYs) gained. Costs were estimated per worker according to type and appropriate inputs from selected health(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the calculation and application of confidence intervals in pharmacoeconomic studies. DATA SYNTHESIS The increasing frequency with which pharmacoeconomic evaluations are made within clinical trials makes it possible to obtain information on the outputs and costs of an intervention in each patient of a sample under study. This allows(More)
Today ubiquitous computing is steadily growing in daily life, leading to an increasing need of resource awareness especially for devices with limited energy source. The running applications may differ significantly in their requirements and priority and these variations can occur during a single running application as well. Apart from the applications'(More)
Industry 4.0 is a reality through the use of intelligent networks capable of gathering and analyzing data and acting on it autonomously. However, important advancements can be made when reconfigurable hardware comes into play. This work presents current trends used in the development of digital circuits, then enumerates a series of challenges faced in the(More)
