Despite improvements in healing rates venous ulcer disease still carries significant morbidity and cost. Any therapy that further improves healing rates is worthy of consideration. The recognised effects of intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) on both arterial and venous circulation suggest that its use may confer significant benefits to venous ulcer(More)
Hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) has widened the range of laparoscopic surgery. An appropriate port allowing the passage of the hand while maintaining pneumoperitoneum is mandatory for HALS to be performed. Commercially available ports are expensive and may not be universally available. An inexpensive 2-component port using the flange of a stoma(More)
Here we report a case of adenomatoid odontogenic tumor (AOT) in the maxilla in a young girl aged 14 years and its surgical management. We also review the literature and variations in the nomenclature and classifications of this interesting tumor. The review of literature gives an interesting picture regarding terminologies in the past and dilemma in(More)
Breakage of K-wires and stainless steel wires which are used for fracture fixation is not uncommon, but migration is rare. We report a case of migration of broken K-wire used for patella tension band wiring to the popliteal fossa. The broken hardware was removed surgically. We would like to suggest that K-wire and wire fixation used for treatment of(More)
This study combines the notion of both steganography [1] and visual cryptography [2]. Recently, a number of innovative algorithms have been proposed in the fields of steganography and visual cryptography with the goals of improving security, reliability, and efficiency; because there will be always new kinds of threats in the field of information hiding.(More)
Fixture design is a complex process and largely relies on a designer's experience to solve current problem. Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) provides a promising methodology for solving design problems in this complex domain based on the idea that past problem-solving experiences can be reused and learned from in solving new problems. In order to realize a CBR(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM A thorough donor evaluation in the living donation process is mandatory to ensure a safe outcome in an otherwise healthy individual. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the reasons for not proceeding to donation and the outcome of live liver donors. METHODS A prospective study of potential donors who underwent evaluation and(More)
The presence of kyphoscoliosis can adversely affect gas exchange because of restriction to gas flow and reduction of lung volume. The effects become more exaggerated during positive-pressure ventilation due to the uneven distribution of ventilation. The use of a double-lumen tube helps to reduce the ventilation perfusion mismatch that occurs because of(More)
