Many decentralized and peer-to-peer applications require some sort of data management. Besides P2P file-sharing, there are already scenarios (e.g. BRICKS project) that need management of finer-grained objects including updates and, keeping them highly available in very dynamic communities of peers. In order to achieve project goals and fulfill the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the influence of the angiogenesis parameter CD34 microvascular density (MVD) on overall survival of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. METHODS Thirty-one CRC patients were followed-up for 72 months after curative colorectal operation. Blood vessels measurement was done using the CD34-MVD immunochemistry method, and light microscopy.(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively evaluate the incidence of change in light-touch sensation in the innervated area of the lower alveolar nerve after bilateral sagittal-split osteotomy (BSSO) with attention on the time it takes to rebuild the function of the inferior alveolar nerve. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sample consisted of 30 women and 20 men with a mean age(More)
Current developments on Service-oriented Architectures, Peer-to-Peer and Grid computing promise more open and flexible architectures for digital libraries. They will open DL technology to a wider clientele, allow faster adaptability and enable the usage of federative models on content and service provision. These technologies rise new challenges for the(More)
The introduction of Service Oriented Architectures enables the transition from integrated, centrally controlled systems to federated and dynamic configurable systems. Scalability and reliability are key requirements for such infrastructures. Due to the size and dynamic only decentralized and self-organizing systems are able to accomplish the previously(More)
BACKGROUND Midface reconstruction is one of the most challenging tasks for the reconstructive surgeon. We present a technique for the reconstruction of the midface after total maxillectomy with preservation of orbital contents. METHODS Skeletal reconstruction is achieved with a preoperatively bent titanium sheet mesh on a universal skeletal model. The(More)
The authors present their experience of 27 cases with repairs of defects following radical maxillectomies with free flaps. A total of 28 flaps were used (five latissimus dorsi, six scapula, 16 combination flaps of scapula and latissimus dorsi and one combination of scapula, latissimus dorsi and serratus anterior flap). Only one scapula flap was completely(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and discuss the free flap reconstructive options for patients with partial and total maxillectomy defects. DESIGN Retrospective review of cases. SETTING Two tertiary referral centers. PATIENTS Fifty-one patients had partial or total maxillectomy defects resulting from oncologic surgical resection, and 7 had partial maxillectomy(More)
Madelung syndrome is a rare disease found predominantly in the Mediterranean area. It has a distinctive clinical appearance. Staged surgery is the treatment of choice, which produces substantial improvement in both functional and aesthetic appearance. Recurrences usually occur when it is impossible to resect the disease completely.
The three-dimensional optoelectronic locomotion analysis system SELSPOT II was used for kinematic studies of hind limb locomotion patterns. Two groups, 11 sound horses and 15 horses suffering from hind limb lameness, were examined at the trot. Both graphical and quantitative analyses were compared in sound and lame horses. The parameter hip acceleration(More)
