The aim of this study is to investigate the characteristics of surface electromyographic signals, particularly in pattern analysis. The data were collected from the wrist muscles (flexor carpi ulnaris and extensor carpi radialis) of 20 healthy participants. The study focuses on the movement of the wrist muscles at different frequencies. Participants were(More)
Autologous islet cell transplantation after near-total or total pancreatic resection can alleviate pain in patients with severe chronic pancreatitis and preserve endocrine function. From February 2000 to February 2003, a total of 22 patients, whose median age was 38 years, underwent pancreatectomy and autologous islet cell transplantation. Postoperative(More)
HYPOTHESIS The required sample size of a prospective randomized trial comparing standard pancreaticoduodenectomy with pancreaticoduodenectomy plus extended lymphadenectomy for pancreatic adenocarcinoma is prohibitively large, making such a trial infeasible. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Comprehensive cancer center. PATIENTS We identified(More)
Gastric duplication cysts are an uncommon finding, especially in the adult population. Presenting symptoms can be non-specific, but can include abdominal pain, nausea and emesis. In this report, we present a 28-year-old female diagnosed with a communicating gastric cyst with both gastric and duodenal mucosa, along with pancreatic tissue and no evidence of(More)
INTRODUCTION The advantage of minimally invasive hernia repair techniques remains controversial. One of the more established indications for this technique's use is the presence of a recurrent hernia. No prior study has compared the recovery following endoscopic repair of virgin and recurrent hernias. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between July 15, 1994 through(More)
INTRODUCTION The advantage of using minimally invasive techniques over open techniques in the repair of groin hernias is still debated. Despite its more widespread use, an apparent dichotomy exists. While some surgeons continue to believe that no advantage is gained using the laparoscopic technique, others argue laparoscopic hernia repair (LHR) offers a(More)
–– This work presents the modeling and simulation of ethyl acetate reactive distillation column using Aspen Plus TM simulation software. Reactive distillation is a process where simultaneous chemical reaction and vapour-liquid phase separation take place. This represents an exciting alternative to traditional liquid phase chemical reaction processing. In(More)
INTRODUCTION The advantage of using minimally invasive techniques over open techniques in the repair of inguinal hernias remains unclear. One of the more established indications for the performance of minimally invasive (e.g. endoscopic preperitoneal) herniorrhaphy is the presence of bilateral hernias. However, no prior study has compared the recovery(More)
