BACKGROUND Titanium cranioplasty (TC) has been associated with high complication rates, but abundant data are lacking. We aimed to determine the incidence and type of complications following TC and risk factors for complications. METHODS A retrospective review was performed on 174 patients who underwent TC at two London units over a seven year period.(More)
Keywords: Fruiting body Fungal biotechnology Fungal enzymes Bioprocessing of food Fermentation Mushroom Termitomyces clypeatus Secondary metabolites a b s t r a c t Fungi are of excellent value nutritionally, and of great importance to vegetarians. Edible mushrooms are excellent sources of protein, have low-fat content and are free of cholesterol. They are(More)
In this paper, the authors have presented a robust watermarking scheme which employs both the Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). The proposed scheme starts with transformation of an original grayscale cover image into a transformed image using block based DCT. From each transformed block, the middle band DCT(More)
During cell division, a mitotic spindle is built by the cell and acts to align and stretch duplicated sister chromosomes before their ultimate segregation into daughter cells. Stretching of the pericentromeric chromatin during metaphase is thought to generate a tension-based signal that promotes proper chromosome segregation. However, it is not known(More)
During cell division, a microtubule-based mitotic spindle mediates the faithful segregation of duplicated chromosomes into daughter cells. Proper length control of the metaphase mitotic spindle is critical to this process and is thought to be achieved through a mechanism in which spindle pole separation forces from plus-end-directed motors are balanced by(More)
Studies on knockout mutants and conditional mutants are invaluable to biological research and have been used extensively to probe the intricacies of biological systems through loss of function associated with attenuation of a particular protein. Besides, RNAi technology has been developed in recent years to further aid the process of scientific inquiry.(More)
Chemical separation has great importance in industrial applications. Separation of xylene isomers still prevails to be one of the most important challenges in chemical industry, due to the large amount of commercial use of p-xylene in the production of beverage bottles, fibers and films. A novel Zn(II)-based dynamic coordination framework based on flexible(More)
OBJECT The authors assess the utility of routine biopsy at vertebroplasty for vertebral compression fracture (VCF) as a tool in the early detection of malignancy in presumed benign VCF. METHODS A prospective observational study was conducted on a cohort of consecutive patients undergoing vertebroplasty over a 5-year period between April 2006 and March(More)
INTRODUCTION High complication rates have been cited following olfactory groove meningioma (OGM) resection but data are lacking on attendant risk factors. We aimed to review the complications following OGM resection and identify prognostic factors. METHODS A retrospective review was performed on 34 consecutive patients who underwent primary OGM resection(More)
— Digital color image segmentation of noisy images is nowadays an important area of research in the field of computer vision. This paper advocates an effective image segmentation approach for noisy images. The approach can broadly be divided into application of two strategies namely noise removal from noisy images using median filtering on initial digital(More)
