Patient-specific guides can improve limb alignment and implant positioning in total knee arthroplasty, although not all studies have supported this benefit. We compared the radiographs of 100 consecutively-performed patient-specific total knees to a similar group that was implanted with conventional instruments instead. The patient-specific group showed(More)
The pharmacokinetics of ornidazole was studied in 6 patients treated by haemodialysis and in 8 subjects with a creatinine clearance between 4 and 99 ml/min × 1.73 m2. Blood and urine collections were performed for 72 h after i.v. and oral administration of 1.0 g ornidazole. Total body clearance, half-life, volume of distribution and systemic availability(More)
The pharmacokinetics of carumonam after a single 1,000-mg intravenous infusion (20 min) were evaluated in four groups of subjects who had various degrees of renal impairment: group 1, CLCR greater than 60 ml/min; group 2, CLCR = 30 to 60 ml/min; group 3, CLCR = 10 to 30 ml/min; and group 4, CLCR less than 10 ml/min). The elimination half-life of carumonam(More)
Ro 13-9904, a new parenteral cephalosporin, was found to have high in vitro activity against Enterobacteriaceae and other gram-negative bacteria, including various isolates resistant to cefuroxime, cefamandole, cefoxitin, and cefazolin. It showed promising activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Although inhibitory against Staphylococcus aureus at(More)
The development of highly scalable recommender systems, able to deliver recommendations in real time, is a challenging task. In contrast to traditional recommender systems, recommending news entails additional requirements. These requirements include tight response times, heavy load peaks, and continuously changing collections of users and items. In this(More)
The antibacterial properties of the new cephalosporin RO 13-9904 were investigated in vitro and in vivo. The compound showed good activity against Entero-bacteriaceae and gram-positive cocci, except Streptococcus faecalis. Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis were extremely susceptible to Ro 13-9904. The bactericidal(More)
