OBJECTIVE Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is the primary regulator of free water retention through its interactions with the AVP type 2 receptor (V(2)). As opposed to the natriuresis and diuresis that occur with loop and thiazide diuretics, conivaptan is an AVP V(1A)/V(2) receptor antagonist, which enhances free water excretion while minimizing sodium loss. We(More)
In this paper we present a novel way of creating mosaics from an MPEG video sequence. Two original aspects of our work are that (1) we explicitly compute camera motion between frames and (2) we deduce the camera motion directly from the motion vectors encoded in the MPEG video stream. This enables us to create mosaics more simply and quickly than with other(More)

For a strong oriented graph D of order n and diameter d and an integer k with 1 ≤ k ≤ d, the kth power D k of D is that digraph having vertex set V (D) with the property that (u, v) is an arc of D k if the directed distance d D (u, v) from u to v in D is at most k. For every strong digraph D of order n ≥ 2 and every integer k ≥ ⌈n/2⌉, the digraph D k is(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal management strategy for neonates with Ebstein's anomaly is unknown. This analysis was undertaken to assess current trends in the management and prognosis of neonates born with Ebstein's anomaly in the United States, as reflected in an administrative database. METHODS The Pediatric Health Information System database (40 children's(More)
