Moyamoya syndrome is the secondary form of intracranial arterial occlusive diseases that produces collateral vessels from the base of brain. We report a case of Moyamoya syndrome developing in association with Graves thyrotoxicosis; as a result of its rapid progression and severe global ischemia, it was ultimately fatal. Because of the rarity of this(More)
BACKGROUND There has been no longitudinal study in Taiwan to identify the nature and the scale of medical care utilization of people with intellectual disabilities (IDs) up to the present. The aim of this study is to describe inpatient utilization among people under ID care in institutions in order to identify the pattern of medical care needs and the(More)
For better understanding of relevant morphology and mechanics, direct visualization of a Neuroform microstent (NFM) within an actual human intracranial artery is essential. Twelve NFM were deployed into 8 various segments of formaldehyde-fixed cadaver intracranial arteries. The arteries were then dehydrated and cleared in methyl salicylate to create(More)
A pollen-specific gene from lily (Lilium longiflorum Thunb. cv. Snow Queen), designated LLP-PG, was characterized. Southern blots of lily genomic DNA indicated that LLP-PG is a member of a small gene family. A thorough sequence analysis revealed that the LLP-PG gene is interrupted by two introns and encodes a protein of 413 amino acids, with a calculated(More)
This paper presents a route navigation system with a new revised shortest path routing algorithm for solving road traffic problems. The system can avoid selecting no left (right) turns, one-way roads, and congested roads when it determines the shortest paths from source to destination. Also, the new revised routing algorithm is compared numerically with(More)
