This paper proposes a novel contribution in Web caching area, especially in Web cache replacement, so-called intelligent client-side Web caching scheme (ICWCS). This approach is developed by splitting the client-side cache into two caches: short-term cache that receives the Web objects from the Internet directly, and long-term cache that receives the Web… (More)
Web caching is one of the most successful solutions for improving the performance of Web-based systems. In Web proxy caching, the popular Web objects that are likely to be revisited in the near future are stored on the proxy server, which plays the key roles between users and Web sites in reducing the response time of user requests and saving the network… (More)
We report an unusual case of thrombocytopenia associated with neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). A 31-year-old Black male with a history of hypertension, partial seizures, and schizophrenia developed acute rigidity closely followed by severe hyperpyrexia (temperature 102 degree F), tachypnea, and tachycardia. His home medications at the time of… (More)
Epidemiologic evidence suggests a link between psychosocial risk factors such as marital status and coronary artery disease (CAD). Polygamy (multiple concurrent wives) is a distinct marital status practiced in many countries in Asia and the Middle East, but its association with CAD is not well defined. We conducted a multicenter, observational study of… (More)
INTRODUCTION Sinus arrest, atrio-ventricular block, supraventricular, and ventricular arrhythmias have been reported in patients with sleep apnea syndrome. The arrhythmias usually occur during sleep and contribute to the cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and the treatment of sleep apnea usually results in the resolution of the brady- arrhythmias.… (More)
Objective To determine the prevalence and severity of RV fatty infiltration, stratified by age, in patients referred to cardiac MRI (cMRI) for suspected Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD).
Purpose To evaluate the utility and prognostic value of delayed enhancement and T2 weighted cardiovascular MRI in patients at high risk for cardiac sarcoidosis.
Objective To evaluate the prognostic utility of different cardiac MRI (CMR) parameters utilized for the diagnosis of myocarditis.
