OBJECTIVES The transfusion-related acute lung injury frequency was for a long time underestimated since it lacked both a widely accepted clinical definition and a comprehensive etiologic description. Recent clinical and biological data have underlined its frequency and have allowed a better understanding of its mechanisms. CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND KEY POINTS… (More)
A novel technique for inserting basestations on an ad-hoc basis is investigated in this paper. Sector retraction and extension is used to reshape the network coverage area. Basestations are generally added to the network whenever there is a need to meet an increasing capacity demand. The replanning exercise can be both costly and time consuming. Situation… (More)
OBJECTIVES This study was planned to define the clinical profile of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients having renal amyloidosis, to identify the factors responsible for development of amyloidosis, to detect the time period between onset of amyloidosis and PTB, and analyze clinical features of amyloidosis in PTB patients for early diagnosis and timely… (More)

This is done through flooding their server with the unnecessary traffic. These attacks are performed on some prestigious web sites like Yahoo, Amazon and on various cloud service providers. The severity of the attack… (More)
Current deployment of wireless community networks and wireless municipal services utilizes multi-hop backbone mesh network technology to provide ubiquitous Internet connectivity to the end users. IEEE 802.11s Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising technology to increase spatial reuse in a mesh backbone using high gain directional antennas. Uses of… (More)
The simultaneous occurrence of pulmonary carcinoid tumor and tuberculosis is very rare. A case of pulmonary carcinoid tumor is described in a 35-year-old male patient who had concomitant ipsilateral pulmonary tuberculosis. The importance of dual pathological diagnosis in clinical practice is also emphasized.
