Our study evaluated the results of surgical repair of acute carpal scaphoid fractures in athletes and the time required for the athletes to return to play. Although playing casts are a nonsurgical option, they reduce the effectiveness of the athlete in sports that require maximal manual dexterity; thus, the management of scaphoid fractures is challenging(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a patient with lymphoma who developed Aspergillus tracheobronchitis resulting in airway obstruction and acute respiratory failure. DESIGN Case report. SETTING Intensive care unit of a tertiary care hospital. PATIENT A 22-yr-old female with lymphoma who developed a respiratory infection 3 months after completing immunosuppressive(More)
PURPOSE Rechallenge with temozolomide (TMZ) at first progression of glioblastoma after temozolomide chemoradiotherapy (TMZ/RT→TMZ) has been studied in retrospective and single-arm prospective studies, applying temozolomide continuously or using 7/14 or 21/28 days schedules. The DIRECTOR trial sought to show superiority of the 7/14 regimen. EXPERIMENTAL(More)
Conditions with chronically elevated glucocorticoid levels are usually associated with declarative memory deficits. Considerable evidence suggests that long-term glucocorticoid exposure may cause cognitive impairment via cumulative and long-lasting influences on hippocampal function and morphology. However, because elevated glucocorticoid levels at the time(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMT) represent a spectrum of neoplasms that occur in the mesentery and retroperitoneum and less frequently in the mediastinum of children and young adults. Transformation into inflammatory fibrosarcoma and metastases are rare. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 16-year-old patient with an inflammatory(More)
A haptic interface compatible with the Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging technique allows tracking of the neural correlates of specific haptic interactions and investigations of reparative plasticity in the sensorimotor cortex, with the aid of functional MR imaging (fMRI). In this paper, we present an fMRI compatible haptic interface with pneumatic actuation(More)
A prospective study was designed to provide 5-year followup of the treatment of isolated grade III sprains of the medial collateral ligament with early functional rehabilitation in 35 athletes. After injury, patients were placed in lateral hinged braces to provide valgus support without restricting flexion or extension of the knee. Treatment was initiated(More)
This paper presents an application of higher order statistics and spectra to the problem of laser-Doppler Flowmetry (LDF) for microcirculation monitoring. The proposed signal processing technique computes the bispectra of LDF signals after appropriate pre-processing and extracts features which can be used for classification of the signals to a normal or(More)
In this work, we studied human head motions during upper extremity motor task, conducted in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies. The experiments were performed on a mock up of the MRI bench. Three kinds of linear movements in the caudal-cranial, left-right and anterior-posterior directions, a reaching movement as well as single joint(More)
Reduced hindbrain herniation observed after intrauterine myelomeningocoele repair suggests that posterior fossa changes in myelomeningocoele are secondary results of prolonged prenatal spinal cerebrospinal fluid leak. Exceptionally, this transforaminal herniation results in 'degeneration' of cerebellar tissue, presumably due to mechanically induced(More)
