Tree-structured neural networks exploit valuable syntactic parse information as they interpret the meanings of sentences. However, they suffer from two key technical problems that make them slow and unwieldy for large-scale NLP tasks: they usually operate on parsed sentences and they do not directly support batched computation. We address these issues by(More)
TB involving the CNS and its coverings is a complex and potentially devastating disease. The increasing incidence of this disease in both immunologically normal as well as immunologically incompetent populations makes the subject of TB one of universal concern. Although its appearance on MR is not specific, it is important in the proper clinical setting to(More)
BACKGROUND Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) presenting with diffuse skeletal muscular inflammation and cardiac involvement is one of the major causes of clinical deterioration. Our purpose was to observe the frequency of various reported clinical cardiac afflictions, cardiovascular mortality and its most important contributors in the IIM population.(More)
Parkinson disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the presence of Lewy bodies and a reduction in the number of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra of the basal ganglia. Common symptoms of PD include a reduction in control of voluntary movements, rigidity, and tremors. Such symptoms are marked by a severe deterioration(More)
There are very few cases of primary pericardial sarcomas reported in the English literature. Pericardial tumors, like other cardiac tumors, are most likely to be metastatic in nature and are an extension of primary tumors from the surrounding structures. Sarcomas are the most common primary pericardial tumors. Surgical eradication of the tumor is considered(More)
OBJECT The Internet has become a widespread source for disseminating health information to large numbers of people. Such is the case for spine surgery as well. Given the complexity of spinal surgeries, an important point to consider is whether these resources are easily read and understood by most Americans. The average national reading grade level has been(More)
PURPOSE Recent structural and histochemical data from our laboratory indicate that human drusen often possess distinct, structural core domains. A similar, corelike structure is frequently noted clinically in some drusen-related conditions. To assess the nature of the corelike structures observed clinically, we evaluated color photographs and fluorescein(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the efficacy of isolated pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis-thrombectomy (IPMT) by Trellis device (Covidien, Mansfield, MA) in managing acute limb ischemic (ALI). BACKGROUND ALI is both life and limb threatening disease with a reported 9-15% mortality and 15-25% limb loss in the first month after presentation. Pitfalls of current(More)
Acute aortofemoral graft occlusion is often effectively treated with endovascular therapy but a substantial proportion of patients experience failure or complications of this therapy, and most of them require definitive surgery for the underlying inflow, outflow, or graft disease. We describe a case of an aortofemoral graft occlusion that was successfully(More)
