To solve a problem, needed information and problem-solving capabilities must be brought together. Often the information used in technical problem solving is costly to acquire, transfer, and use in a new location-is, in our terms, "sticky." In this paper we explore the impact of information stickiness on the locus of innovation-related problem solving. We(More)
The technology life cycle literature provides strong theoretical foundations that explain how an era of technological ferment culminates in a dominant design, as well as how technology progresses during the resulting era of incremental change. But the processes by which subsequent technological discontinuities occur, particularly their timing, remains(More)
Peripheral nerve injury was associated with fracture or fracture-dislocation of the pelvis in 23 dogs and 11 cats. In most cases, peripheral nerve injury resulted from ilial fracture with craniomedial displacement of bone fragments, or from sacroiliac fracture-dislocation with cranial displacement of the ilium. Sciatic nerve injury was associated with(More)
Partial rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament was diagnosed in 25 dogs. In all dogs, the primary problem at the time of physical examination was hind limb lameness. The mean time from initial onset of lameness to diagnosis at exploratory surgery was 17 weeks. A cranial drawer sign was detected in 13 of the 25 dogs; in 9, the cranial drawer sign was(More)
Fractures of the mandible and maxilla occur frequently in the dog and cat. Appropriate preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management of jaw fractures is imperative for successful results. Various techniques of jaw fracture management, including tape muzzles, circumferential wiring, interarcade wiring, interosseous wiring, interdental wiring,(More)
Osteosarcoma was diagnosed in 22 cats. Diagnosis was based on results of physical, radiographic, and histologic findings. Fifteen tumors arose from the appendicular skeleton, 4 from the skull, 2 from the pelvis, and 1 from a rib. Radiography revealed that in 14 of 15 cats (93%) with appendicular tumors, the lesion was metaphyseal, primarily lytic, with a(More)
Three patients (1 dog, 2 horses) are described where myelography was complicated, purportedly by injection of contrast medium into the meninges superficial to the subarachnoid space. Contrast medium injected in this location in a cadaver tended to accumulate dorsally within the vertebral canal, deep to the dura mater but superficial to the subarachnoid(More)
