Long-term results of orthotopic heart transplantation vary among different institutions. The purpose of the present study was to assess the factors, which might affect long-term survival and complications. Between November 1992 and July 2003, 112 heart transplantations (M/F=89:23) were performed. The standard technique was used in the first 57 patients and(More)
Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia occurs in a diverse group of disorders, including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, hemolytic uremic syndrome, and prosthetic cardiac valves. Hemolytic anemia also occurs as a rare complication after mitral valve repair. In this report, we describe a case of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia following myxoma excision and(More)
Dijkstra's algorithm proposed by Edsger Dijkstra in 1959 is mainly used to find the shortest path. However, Dijkstra's algorithm is not suitable on raster data because it developed based on network data and has high computational complexity. In this study, genetic algorithms are proposed to find the shortest path on raster data. In particular, the 2D array(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Telomeres are simple repeat elements located at each chromosome end of eukaryotic cells. The main function of telomeres is to cap the chromosome end and protect it from enzymatic attack. Telomerase that facilitates the synthesis of telomere has been detected in not only cancer but also precancerous lesion. In this study, we compared the(More)
