OBJECTIVE Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) recurs after surgical evacuation in 5-30% of patients. Inserting subdural drain might reduce the recurrence rate, but is not commonly practiced. There are few prospective studies to evaluate the effect of subdural drains. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective randomized study to investigate the effect of subdural(More)
Organic matter (OM) is a ubiquitous constituent of natural waters quantifiable at very low levels using fluorescence spectroscopy. This technique has recognized potential in a range of applications where the ability to monitor water quality in real time is desirable, such as in water treatment systems. This study used PARAFAC to characterize a large(More)
Previous studies on mitochondrial DNA analysis of sheep from different regions of the world have revealed the presence of two major- A and B, and three minor- C, D and E maternal lineages. Lineage A is more frequent in Asia and lineage B is more abundant in regions other than Asia. We have analyzed mitochondrial DNA sequences of 330 sheep from 12 different(More)
Data mining, which aims at extracting interesting information from large collections of data, has been widely used as an effective decision making tool. Mining the datasets in the presence of context factors may improve performance and efficacy of data mining by identifying the unknown factors, which are not easily detectable in the process of generating an(More)
The ability of fluorescent Pseudomonas strain EKi, in production of biocontrol and plant growth promotory (PGP) metabolites under saline stress was evaluated. Strain EKi could tolerate NaCl up to 1,550 mM and showed biocontrol of Macrophomina phaseolina (76.19%) in the presence of up to 400 mM NaCl. Strain EKi was able to produce IAA, siderophore and(More)
Starting as a model for developmental genetics, embryology, and organogenesis, the zebrafish has become increasingly popular as a model organism for numerous areas of biology and biomedicine over the last decades. Within haematology, this includes studies on blood cell development and function and the intricate regulatory mechanisms within vertebrate(More)
Ubiquitous computing refers to building a global computing environment where seamless and invisible access to computing resources is provided to the user. Pervasive computing deals with acquiring context knowledge from the environment and providing dynamic, proactive and context-aware services to the user. A Ubiquitous computing environment is created by(More)
— One of the main problem in biomedical data processing like electrocardiography is the separation of the wanted signal from noises caused by power line interference, external electromagnetic fields and random body movements and respiration. Different types of digital filters are used to remove signal components from unwanted frequency ranges. It is(More)
