BACKGROUND The biomechanical characteristics of midshaft clavicular fractures treated with titanium elastic nail (TEN) is unclear. This study aimed to present a biomechanical finite element analysis of biomechanical characteristics involved in TEN fixation and reconstruction plate fixation for midshaft clavicular fractures. METHODS Finite element models(More)
A secure mobile communication approach is proposed in this paper. The security of our approach is guaranteed by certification authority and information hiding technique. During the communication, the identity of users will be validated first. The secure speech will be transferred hidden in the public speech. When the public speech arrives at the receiving(More)
It is known that contralateral seventh cervical nerve (C7) root transfer after brachial plexus avulsion injuries (BPAI) causes interhemispheric cortical functional reorganization. However, the potential mechanisms and the role of neurotrophic factors and/or growth-associated protein expression in the process of cerebral reorganization are not well(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical advantages of medial support screws (MSSs) in the locking proximal humeral plate for treating proximal humerus fractures. METHODS Thirty synthetic left humeri were randomly divided into 3 subgroups to establish two-part surgical neck fracture models of proximal humerus. All fractures(More)
AIM To evaluate 'remind-to-move' (RTM) treatment by comparing it with constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) and conventional rehabilitation of the upper extremity in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD Seventy-three children (44 males, 29 females; mean age 11y 8mo, standard deviation [SD] 3y 1mo) - with 20, 38, and 15 in Manual(More)
The non-toxic and wide bandgap material TiO2 is explored as an n-type buffer layer on p-type Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) absorber layer for thin film solar cells. The amorphous TiO2 thin film deposited by atomic layer deposition process at low temperatures shows conformal coverage on the CIGS absorber layer. Solar cells from non-vacuum deposited CIGS absorbers with(More)
Concentrating on consuming coefficient, partition coefficient, and Leontief inverse matrix, relevant concepts and algorithms are developed for estimating the impact of meteorological services including the associated (indirect, complete) economic effect. Subsequently, quantitative estimations are particularly obtained for the meteorological services in(More)
Homeodomain leucine zipper (HD-Zip) proteins play important roles in plant development. In this study, we not only identified and characterized a new HD-Zip II gene, designated as MSHB1 (HM114227), from alfalfa (Medicago sativa L. cv. Jinnan) callus treated with thidiazuron (TDZ) which reduced the embryogenic competence of the callus, but also presented the(More)
