The purpose of this study was to determine the intrarater and interrater reliability of a clinical evaluation system for scapular dysfunction. No commonly accepted terminology presently exists for describing the abnormal dynamic scapular movement patterns that are commonly associated with shoulder injury. A method of observation was devised for clinical(More)
We present a method to tune software parameters using ideas from software testing and machine learning. The method is based on the key observation that for many classes of instances, the software shows improved performance if a few critical parameters have " good " values, although which parameters are critical depends on the class of instances. Our method(More)
− DeviceNet and ControlNet are two well-known idus-trial networks based on the CIP protocol (CIP = Control an Information Protocol). Both networks have been developed by Rockwell Automation, but are now owned and maintained by the two manufacturers organizations ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendors Association, see http://www.odva.org) and ControlNet International(More)
OBJECTIVE Management of pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PAIVS) can be directed to either biventricular repair or univentricular palliation. The optimal management strategy has yet to be defined. METHODS All patients operated at the Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne for PAIVS between 1990 and 2006 (n = 81) were reviewed. Patients were(More)
Rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICH) are the commonest variety of congenital hemangioma, often diagnosed antenatally as high-flow arteriovenous shunts causing hemodynamic compromise to the fetus. The postnatal management of such patients is often challenging. We present the case of an infant boy who was delivered prematurely at 29 weeks of(More)

Complete heart block (CHB) is a potentially fatal condition occurring in approximately 1:10000 fetuses. Whilst it is well recognised that maternal anti-Ro and La antibodies are associated with fetal CHB, there are multiple other manifestations of fetal exposure to these autoantibodies which are not widely appreciated and rarely diagnosed. The importance of(More)
