BACKGROUND Many reconstructions of acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations have focused on the coracoclavicular (CC) ligaments and neglected the functional contribution of the AC ligaments and the deltotrapezial fascia. PURPOSE To compare the modifications of previously published methods for direct AC reconstruction in addition to a CC reconstruction.(More)
In a double-blind placebo, controlled clinical study, lasting 12 weeks, 48 male and 48 female ambulatory schizophrenic patients were randomly assigned to one of four treatments: placebo; amitriptyline hydrochloride, 125 mg/day; perphenazine, 20 mg/day; or amitriptyline-perphenazine, 20 mg/day. Treatment groups contained an equal number of male and female(More)
Background: Proximal hamstring repair for complete ruptures has become a common treatment. There is no consensus in the literature about postoperative rehabilitation protocols following proximal hamstring repair. Some protocols describe bracing to prevent hip flexion or knee extension while others describe no immobilization. There are currently no(More)
In a double-blind controlled study lasting 6 weeks, 32 schizophrenic patients were randomly assigned to one of two treatments: chlorpromazine or benserazide, a dopa decarboxylase inhibitor. Results on each measure were subject to multifactorial analysis of covariance. Benserazide did not appear to be as effective an antipsychotic medicaiton as(More)
It is proposed that just as the stethoscope and thermometer are fundamental tools for individual medicine, production and health recording systems are fundamental tools for effective population medicine. Treatment and control of clinical diseases as the primary objective is no longer considered appropriate for livestock population. Disease in populations(More)
Clustering problem is one of the hottest research fields in microarrays data analysis. In Clustering, a set of observations are assigned into subsets (called clusters) such that observations in the same cluster are similar in some sense. One of the clustering approaches is based on the minimum spanning tree (MST). The MST-based clustering techniques consist(More)
