Open-wedge high tibial osteotomy is considered to be an effective treatment for medial compartmental osteoarthritis. It is generally admitted that tibial slope increases after open-wedge high tibial osteotomy and decreases after closing-wedge high tibial osteotomy. Young patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency along with medial compartment(More)
An improved and efficient adaptive median filter is proposed for salt & pepper impulse noise removal from digital images. The more perfect and computationally efficient filtering scheme takes care to restore only the impulse corrupted pixels by a perfect mid-ranking image statistic from an appropriate local neighborhood while keeping the signal content(More)
The paper presents an improved median filter for salt & pepper impulse noise removal. This computationally efficient filtering technique is implemented as a two pass algorithm: in the first pass, identification of corrupted pixels that are to be filtered are perfectly detected into a flag image using an iterative fixed sized smaller window approach; in(More)
Certain wood quality parameters of about 9-year-old Melia dubia Cav. trees grown in a seedling seed orchard at Yeshwanthpura Research Station of Kolar research range, Karnataka India were studied. Trees were categorized into three classes depending upon their girth at the breast height––small (<40 cm), medium (40–60 cm) and big (>60 cm). Different(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the usefulness of multiplex polymerase chain reaction (m-PCR) in detecting uterine tuberculosis in women with infertility. In a prospective study, endometrial curetting from 620 females with infertility were investigated using laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, histopathology, smear microscopy, mycobacterial culture(More)
BACKGROUND The pilot phase IIb VIKING study suggested that dolutegravir (DTG), a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) integrase inhibitor (INI), would be efficacious in INI-resistant patients at the 50 mg twice daily (BID) dose. METHODS VIKING-3 is a single-arm, open-label phase III study in which therapy-experienced adults with INI-resistant virus received(More)
The diagnostic and prognostic relevance of desmin expression in 80 rhabdomyosarcomas (RMS) and 5 embryonal sarcomas (ES) was examined using a peroxidase anti-peroxidase staining procedure. Fifty-nine RMS but only one ES stained for desmin (P less than 0.05). The maximum percentage of desmin containing cells was 49 in RMS compared with only 1% in ES. Desmin(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare stress distribution in a tooth restored with metal and fiber posts of varying diameters (1.2 and 1.4 mm) by means of three-dimensional finite element analysis (3D-FEA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Four 3D-FEA models were constructed: (1) fiber post (1.2 and 1.4 mm) and (2) metal post (1.2 and 1.4 mm). The material properties were assigned(More)
A formal method for checking equivalence between a given behavioral specification prior to scheduling and the one produced by the scheduler is described. Finite state machine with data path (FSMD) models have been used to represent both the behaviors. The method consists of introducing cutpoints in one FSMD, visualizing its computations as concatenation of(More)
