Despite interest in using cross-lingual knowledge to learn word embeddings for various tasks, a systematic comparison of the possible approaches is lacking in the literature. We perform an extensive evaluation of four popular approaches of inducing cross-lingual embeddings, each requiring a different form of supervision, on four typologically different(More)
Out of a total of 91 patients with traumatic posterior dislocation of the hip treated between 1936 and 1974 in the Mansfield area, 81 patients were reviewed. The average follow-up period was 12.5 years, although there was a large number of cases with a follow-up of more than 15 years and a smaller number with a follow-up of 30 years. The overall results(More)
The purpose of this study was to search for constant and reliable reference points on the computed tomographic scans of scoliotic spines to measure vertebral rotation. Several methods using different sets of reference points on computed tomographic scans were tested for reliability. Two methods that gave minimum variation between the readings are presented(More)
We have used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry to measure bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with ankylosing spondylitis comparing 41 healthy control subjects and 33 patients with either mild or advanced ankylosing spondylitis. A Norland XR-28 bone densitometer was used to measure the BMD of the lumbar spine and that of the head, trunk, arms, femoral(More)
STUDY DESIGN Eighty-five patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis treated with Milwaukee or thoracolumbosacral orthoses at The Duchess of Kent Children's Hospital were studied longitudinally at 4-6-month intervals until maturity for spinal curvature and vertebral rotation, or until termination of brace treatment for persons who experienced brace(More)
In this paper, we describe the University of Illinois (UI CCG) submission to the 2013 TAC KBP Event Argument Extraction (EAE), English Entity Discovery and Linking (EDL), and Slot Filler Validation (SFV) tasks. We developed three separate systems. Our Event Argument Recognition system infers world knowledge from event argument overlaps to improve(More)
We evaluated pulmonary functions before correction and again after a mean follow-up of three years in thirty-five patients who had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The mean age (and standard deviation) at the time of correction was 13.7 +/- 1.8 years, and at the time of follow-up it was 17.1 +/- 2.5 years. The findings in the patients were compared with(More)
Of 112 patients who were subjects of the Medical Research Council's prospective study, 105 (94%) were involved in a longitudinal study follow-up for a mean of 15.3 years postoperatively. Seventy-one patients had radical resection of the tuberculous lesion and bone grafting, and the remaining 34 were treated with debridement surgery at a mean age of 36.7 and(More)
There is no generally accepted scientific theory for the etiology of idiopathic scoliosis. Hence, current treatment is pragmatic and not based on knowledge of causation of the deformity. In Nottingham, we have evaluated data from studies of the hips, pelvis, spine, rib cage and trunk muscles in scoliotic (pre- and post operative) and control patients,(More)
STUDY DESIGN The effectiveness of duration of antituberculous chemotherapy in conjunction with radical surgery for tuberculosis of the spine is reported. One hundred fourteen patients were followed prospectively for a mean period of 14.6 years after radical resection of the tuberculous lesion and reconstruction of the resultant gap with bone graft.
