The hidden terminal problem is unique to wireless networks and as of now, there is very limited understanding about it's effects on network performance. Results are presented from a simulation study of the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol when operating in the presence of hidden terminals. We also propose a framework for modeling hidden terminals which can handle(More)
This paper investigates the performance of IEEE 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) protocol's Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) in the presence of mobile and hidden terminals. In order to study the joint effect of hidden terminals and user mobility on the performance of IEEE 802.11 DCF, we extend To-bagi and Kleinrock's [14] hearing graph(More)
Mobile computing environments are characterized by slow wireless links and relatively underprivileged hosts with limited battery powers, predisposed to frequent disconnections. Caching data at the mobile hosts (MHs) in a wireless network helps alleviate problems associated with slow, limited bandwidth wireless links, by reducing latency and conserving(More)
ÐModern distributed systems involving large number of nonstationary clients (mobile hosts, MH) connected via unreliable low-bandwidth communication channels are very prone to frequent disconnections. This disconnection may occur because of different reasons: The clients may voluntarily switch off (to save battery power), or a client may be involuntarily(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this prospective randomized controlled trial was to assess the efficacy and safety of simultaneous application of tranexamic acid and indirect factor Xa inhibitor following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS Seventy-two primary osteoarthritis patients undergoing unilateral TKA using fondaparinux as a basic thromboprophylaxis(More)
Channel allocation schemes in a mobile computing (wireless) environment can be either static or dynamic. Static allocation offers negligible channel acquisition time and zero message complexity and works well at a low system load; the performance steadily decreases as system load increases since many calls are dropped; in case of even temporary hot spots(More)
Tracking antigen specific T cells with major histocompatibility complex (MHC) tetramers has provided us with insights into the dynamics of the adaptive immune system and holds great promise to aid in patient management and drug and vaccine development. Progress has been made primarily using MHC class I tetramers to monitor CD8(+) T cells, whereas(More)
BACKGROUND Standard thromboprophylaxis guidelines have not been applied universally in regions with low incidence of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) considering risks of chemoprophylaxis and low incidence itself. We evaluated the prevalence of DVT, efficacy and safety of chemoprophylaxis, and necessity of pharmacological prevention in a low DVT incidence(More)
This prospective study was performed on 311 consecutive knees in 227 patients for total knee arthroplasty. The aim was to assess the recent incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after total knee arthroplasty without chemoprophylaxis in Koreans, the efficacy of plasma d-dimer levels as a screening test, and the associated risk factors. Deep vein thrombosis(More)
