A review of the literature for intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia is presented along with a case report of a geriatric patient. Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is a reactive benign lesion of vascular origin, which is caused by an excessive proliferation of endothelial cells. Only a few cases with IPEH ...

Infection of periprosthetic sites of total joint replacements has been widely reported. Although, by most accounts, the incidence of such events is low, the problem can prove to be expensive to remedy. In the case of cemented arthroplasties, a common management modality is the use of antibiotic-loaded acrylic bone cement ...

Hemolytic anemia has occasionally been described in association with insect bites. The venom of certain spiders, bees and wasps, and some snakes can rarely cause intravascular hemolysis. We report here a case of Coombs positive hemolytic anemia due to an insect bite. These bites often pose diagnostic challenges and when ...

We investigate both analytically and numerically the first passage time (FPT) problem in one dimension for anomalous diffusion processes in which Lévy flights and subdiffusion coexist. We analyze the FPT for three subclasses of Lévy stable motions: (i) symmetric Lévy motions characterized by Lévy index mu, 0<mu<2, and skewness parameter ...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: If a case has a high probability of taking longer than scheduled, then increasing the case's scheduled duration could reduce over-utilized operating room (OR) time. We studied surgeons' and schedulers' case scheduling behavior to evaluate whether such a strategy would be useful. DESIGN: Observational study. SETTING: University hospital. ...

Pleural effusions after modified Fontan operations are unpredictable and contribute significantly to the morbidity and prolonged hospitalization. Chemical pleurodesis is widely performed in adults for malignant pleural effusions, but has found less chance of usage for benign cases or the cases with unidentified etiology. Although it is a safe and ...

INTRODUCTION: Historically, U.S. Navy clinicians have used the U.S. Navy Dive Manual for guidance in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries incurred during hyper- or hypobaric operations. Based on this manual, paresthesias are considered to be central nervous system manifestations and thus are classified as Type II (severe) decompression sickness ...

We introduce the notion of distributed quantum dense coding, i.e., the generalization of quantum dense coding to more than one sender and more than one receiver. We show that global operations (as compared to local operations) of the senders do not increase the information transfer capacity, in the case of ...

In this article, we present 2 previously unreported cases of anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) that had a wide deltoid (triangular)-shaped tibial insertion in the coronal plane that caused impingement at the intercondylar notch, inferior parts of patellofemoral sulcus, and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Ligamentoplasty was used in both cases. ...

Vaginal agenesis is an uncommon, but not rare, condition. Although there are many methods for creating a neovagina, the optimal treatment is unknown. An 18-year-old woman with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome received vaginoplasty with a modified Wharton procedure using an artificial dermis (atelocollagen sponge). From 10 days after the operation, the patient ...

We investigate the limiting case of the Drude-Lorentz model for the complex electric permeability epsilon(omega)=1+chi;(omega) as the damping tends to zero. We find that epsilon(omega) becomes real except for a number of discrete frequencies. The Kramers-Kronig relations connecting the real and imaginary parts of chi;(omega) remain valid.

Foreskin complaints in childhood, if not manageable conservatively, are usually treated by circumcision. A less radical surgical option, when balanitis xerotica obliterans is absent, is preputioplasty. We sent questionnaires to the parents of 23 boys who had had this procedure and 22 replied. Mean interval since operation was 20 months ...

The authors report a case of severe primary tracheomalacia in a 3-month-old boy. The left lobe of the enlarged thymus was resected at operation to facilitate aortopexy. The authors suggest a possible role for the enlarging thymus contributing to the delayed onset of the symptoms of tracheomalacia, despite the presence ...

We report the experimental transformation of quadrature entanglement between two optical beams into continuous variable polarization entanglement. We extend the inseparability criterion proposed by Duan et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 2722 (2000)]] to polarization states and use it to quantify the entanglement. We propose an elaboration utilizing two quadrature ...

Microvascular ear replantation is a rare event, having been reported only 25 times since the first case in 1980. It requires a lengthy operative time and hospital stay, results in multiple blood transfusions, and has a significant failure rate. Nevertheless, a successful ear replantation is a dramatic demonstration of the ...

Electrosurgery in the presence of volatile anesthetic gases has been associated with operating-room fires. We report a case in which an operating-room fire occurred while an intubated patient underwent electrosurgical tracheostomy. The fire in this case was caused by a combination of an oxygen-rich environment, a polyvinyl chloride tube, and ...
