Clearly, more clinical experience must be amassed to define in detail the possibilities of this surgical approach in disabling neuropsychiatric disorders. We propose, however, that the evidence for benign and efficient surgical intervention against the neuropsychiatric TCD syndrome is already compelling. The potential appearance of strong postoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, its risk factors and resource utilization in a large South American population of very low birth weight infants. METHODS Prospectively collected data in infants weighing 500 to 1,500 g born at 16 NEOCOSUR Network centers from 10/2000 through 12/2003. Multivariate relative risk and 95%(More)
A stable marriage framework for distributed virtual MIMO coalition formation. HAL is a multidisciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or private research centers.(More)
In this paper, we aim to reduce the power expenditure in the reverse link during low network load periods, by allocating extra resource blocks (RBs) to the mobile users. Thereby, the user's rate demands are split among its allocated RBs in order to transmit in each of them by using a low level modulation order. We model the bandwidth expansion (BE) process(More)
The handoff decision among heterogeneous wireless networks is a very important issue for integrating WLANs and cellular networks. Such networks exhibit different characteristics with respect to bandwidth, latency, power, and their charge model as well. In this paper, we present extensive numerical simulations of a novel vertical handover mechanism, which we(More)
This is the first part of a series of studies related to mosquito ecological and biogeographic aspects. A total of 69 mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) was collected in 16 localities sampled in the Gran Sabana Municipality, Canaima National Park, and Venezuela. Twenty-seven mosquito species are recorded for the first time from Bolívar State, Venezuela.(More)
