PURPOSE To determine the 1-year survival rate, 1-year amputation-free survival rate and the risk factors of amputation for patients with diabetic foot ulcers. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred seventy-three patients with diabetic foot ulcers were included in our study. Mean patient age was 67.5 (range, 29 to 87, SD ±11.4) years. 74% of the patients were(More)
—In this letter, we propose a novel residual echo suppression (RES) algorithm based on a statistical model constructed in the acoustic echo cancellation framework. In the proposed approach , all the possible near-end and far-end signal conditions are classified into four distinct hypotheses, and the power spectral density estimation is carried out according(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the site-specific effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on freezing of gait (FOG) in patients with parkinsonism. METHODS Twenty patients with parkinsonism and FOG were included. A single session of 10 Hz rTMS was applied over three different cortical regions of the dominant(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate any additional effect of dual transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) compared with single tDCS in chronic stroke patients with aphasia. METHODS Eleven chronic stroke patients (aged 52.6±13.4 years, nine men) with aphasia were enrolled. Single anodal tDCS was applied over the left inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and a cathodal(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the long-term effects of complex decongestive therapy (CDT) on edema reduction in breast cancer-related lymphedema patients after axillary dissection, according to the initial volume of edema. METHODS A retrospective review of 57 patients with unilateral arm after an axillary dissection for breast cancer was performed. The(More)
BACKGROUND Fractures which need urgent or emergency treatment are common in children and adolescents. This study investigated the incidence patterns of pediatric and adolescent orthopaedic fractures according to age groups and seasons in South Korea based on population data. METHODS Data on the number of pediatric and adolescent patients under the age of(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel residual echo suppression (RES) algorithm constructed in the acoustic echo canceller. In the proposed approach, we introduce a statistical model to detect the signal components of the output signal and the state of signal is classified into four distinct hypothesis depending on the activity of near-end signal and residual(More)
