He suffered leg pain and weakness since childhood and reportedly grew until his late 20s, reaching(More)
A new computer method has been developed that allows the reprocessing of standard CT scans to produce three dimensional surface images. The process requires only standard CT scanner hardware, and reconstruction time is comparable to that of sagittal and coronal reconstruction. Case reports illustrate the uniqueness of the perspective provided by this(More)
BACKGROUND Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome (BOS), an autosomal dominant disorder, features small, acquired, asymptomatic, symmetrical foci of osteosclerosis detected radiographically in epimetaphyseal bone (osteopoikilosis) (OPK) together with connective tissue nevi or juvenile elastomas. Heterozygous, loss-of-function, germline mutation in the LEMD3 gene(More)
The synthesis of a series of tridentate ligands based on a homochiral 1,2-diamine structure attached to a triazole group and their subsequent applications to the asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of ketones are described. In the best cases, alcohols of up to 93% ee were obtained. Although base is not required, the use of Ru(3)(CO)(12) as metal source is(More)
