AIM To determine the distance between the branching point of the left colic artery (LCA) and the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) by computed tomography (CT) scanning, for preoperative evaluation before laparoscopic colorectal operation. METHODS From February 2004 to May 2005, 100 patients (63 men, 37 women) underwent angiography performed with a(More)
Conjugated polymers, such as polyfluorene and poly(phenylene vinylene), have been used to selectively disperse semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (sc-SWNTs), but these polymers have limited applications in transistors and solar cells. Regioregular poly(3-alkylthiophene)s (rr-P3ATs) are the most widely used materials for organic electronics and(More)
Tuning the threshold voltage of a transistor is crucial for realizing robust digital circuits. For silicon transistors, the threshold voltage can be accurately controlled by doping. However, it remains challenging to tune the threshold voltage of single-wall nanotube (SWNT) thin-film transistors. Here, we report a facile method to controllably n-dope SWNTs(More)
We propose a method to search for illustrative sentences for English multiword expressions (MWEs) from a research paper database. We focus on syntactically flexible expressions such as “regard – as.” Traditionally, illustrative sentences that contain such expressions have been searched for by limiting the maximum number of words between the component words(More)
The endotracheal tube (ETT) constitutes a significant component of total airway resistance. However, a discrepancy between measured and theoretical values has been reported in airway resistance through ETTs. The causes of the discrepancy were estimated by physical and rheological simulations. The pressure losses through total lengths of ETTs and slip joints(More)
The blood supply of the stomach is well characterized. Although the posterior gastric artery (PGA) is the second most important artery supplying the upper third of the stomach, the main features and clinical importance of the PGA have not been established. The aim of this study was to use multi-detector row computed tomography (MD-CT) to investigate the(More)
A semi-formal verification technique, which performs a brute-force compiled simulation with a sophisticated search space pruning, has been proposed and shown to be competitive with the state-of-the-art SAT-based verification techniques [1]. This paper presents a novel approach for accelerating the semi-formal verification by utilizing hardware/software(More)
BACKGROUND Small nasotracheal tubes (NTTs) and intranasal compression of the NTT in the nasal cavity may contribute to increasing airway resistance. Since the effects of size, shape, and partial compression of the NTT on airway resistance have not been investigated, values of airway resistance with partial compression of preformed NTTs of various sizes were(More)
