This was secondary to gastric mucosa prolapse with obstruction of the ampulla of Vater. A literature review revealed no previous reports of similar complication.
Dynamic Optical Arbitrary Waveform Generation (O-AWG) in a Continuous Fiber 2008 We present a low-loss dynamic waveform shaping technique for high-repetition-rate signals by independent phase and amplitude control of spectral lines in a continuous fiber. Our system employs uniform FBGs to separate the spectral lines of a modulated CW signal, and provides… (More)
