Nonoperatively treated infraglenoid tubercle avulsion.
Chin. J. Traumatol.
PUBLISHED: 10-09-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Infraglenoid tubercle avulsion fractures are extremely rare injuries. We report a 38-year-old male with glenoid cavity fracture and infraglenoid tubercle avulsion of the left shoulder following a fall from bike. He refused surgery and was treated nonoperatively. Follow-up radiography and CT at 18 months revealed a malunited infraglenoid tubercle with signs of early glenohumeral osteoarthritis. He did not have shoulder instability or pain and had a fair-good functional outcome. There are no previously published data on the anatomic outcome of nonoperatively treated displaced infraglenoid tubercle avulsion fractures based on CT.

Gastrogastric fistulae following gastric bypass surgery-clinical recognition and treatment.
Curr Gastroenterol Rep
PUBLISHED: 08-13-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Gastrogastric fistula (GGF) formation is an uncommon but well-recognized complication following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity. Patients with GGF may be asymptomatic or have nonspecific problems of abdominal pain, weight regain, or ulcer formation at the gastrojejunal anastomosis. Maintaining a high index of suspicion is the key to diagnosis. Flexible upper endoscopy and upper gastrointestinal fluoroscopy are complementary imaging modalities for securing the diagnosis of GGF. Surgical repair of GGF is generally the most definitive management but is invasive and has the potential for morbidity. Endoscopic methods of closure have gained favor in recent years due to their noninvasive nature despite the lack of long-term data regarding their success. Novel methods of endoscopic closure, including endoscopic suturing, more closely resemble the surgical paradigm and will likely supplant traditional surgical methods for the management of GGF.

Performance evaluation of a dual-flow recharge filter for improving groundwater quality.
Water Environ. Res.
PUBLISHED: 08-13-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A dual-flow multimedia stormwater filter integrated with a groundwater recharge system was developed and tested for hydraulic efficiency and pollutant removal efficiency. The influent stormwater first flows horizontally through the circular layers of planted grass and biofibers. Subsequently, the flow direction changes to a vertical direction so that water moves through layers of pebbles and sand and finally gets recharged to the deep aquifers. The media in the sequence of vegetative medium:biofiber to pebble:sand were filled in nine proportions and tested for the best performing combination. Three grass species, viz., Typha (Typha angustifolia), Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides), and St. Augustine grass (Stenotaphrum secundatum), were tested as the best performing vegetative medium. The adsorption behavior of Coconut (Cocos nucifera) fiber, which was filled in the middle layer, was determined by a series of column and batch studies.The dual-flow filter showed an increasing trend in hydraulic efficiency with an increase in flowrate. The chemical removal efficiency of the recharge dual-flow filter was found to be very high in case of K+ (81.6%) and Na+ (77.55%). The pH normalizing efficiency and electrical conductivity reduction efficiency were also recorded as high. The average removal percentage of Ca2+ was moderate, while that of Mg2+ was very low. The filter proportions of 1:1 to 1:2 (plant:fiber to pebble:sand) showed a superior performance compared to all other proportions. Based on the estimated annual costs and returns, all the financial viability criteria (internal rate of return, net present value, and benefit-cost ratio) were found to be favorable and affordable to farmers in terms of investing in the developed filtration system.

Input coding for neuro-electronic hybrid systems.
BioSystems
PUBLISHED: 08-07-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Liquid State Machines have been proposed as a framework to explore the computational properties of neuro-electronic hybrid systems (Maass et al., 2002). Here the neuronal culture implements a recurrent network and is followed by an array of linear discriminants implemented using perceptrons in electronics/software. Thus in this framework, it is desired that the outputs of the neuronal network, corresponding to different inputs, be linearly separable. Previous studies have demonstrated this by either using only a small set of input stimulus patterns to the culture (Hafizovic et al., 2007), large number of input electrodes (Dockendorf et al., 2009) or by using complex schemes to post-process the outputs of the neuronal culture prior to linear discriminance (Ortman et al., 2011). In this study we explore ways to temporally encode inputs into stimulus patterns using a small set of electrodes such that the neuronal culture's output can be directly decoded by simple linear discriminants based on perceptrons. We demonstrate that network can detect the timing and order of firing of inputs on multiple electrodes. Based on this, we demonstrate that the neuronal culture can be used as a kernel to transform inputs which are not linearly separable in a low dimensional space, into outputs in a high dimension where they are linearly separable. Thus simple linear discriminants can now be directly connected to outputs of the neuronal culture and allow for implementation of any function for such a hybrid system.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a common and important life-saving diagnostic tool in recent times, for diseases of the head and neck region. Dentists should be aware of the interactions of various restorative dental materials and different technical factors put to use by an MRI scanning machine. Specific knowledge about these impacts, at the dentist level and at the level of the personnel at the MRI centers can save valuable time for the patient and prevent errors in MRI images. Artifacts from metal restorations are a major hindrance at such times, as they result in disappearance or distortion of the image and loss of important information.

Endoscopic repair of small symptomatic gastrogastric fistulas after gastric bypass surgery: a single center experience.
Obes Surg

Hide Abstract
Gastrogastric fistula (GGF) is a known complication of gastric bypass surgery. Revisional surgery for GGF repair can be technically challenging. We describe our experience with endoscopic repair of small GGFs. A retrospective review was performed to identify patients in whom symptomatic GGF was repaired endoscopically at our institution between September 2004 and September 2008. At endoscopy, the fistulous margins were debrided using cold biopsy forceps or ablated using Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC). The fistula was then repaired with endoclips. Status of GGF repair was assessed intra-operatively, at 2 weeks by upper gastrointestinal (UGI) series, and at regular follow-up thereafter. GGF repair was attempted in eight female patients (mean age = 47 years). The average time interval between gastric bypass surgery and GGF presentation was 81 months. The presenting symptoms included nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and weight regain. The average duration of endoscopic procedure was 55 min. All GGFs were small (<20 mm). Endoscopic repair of GGF was successful intra-operatively in all patients. Two patients had failure of GGF repair at 2 weeks. Other two patients experienced recurrent symptoms after several weeks and had a delayed failure of GGF repair diagnosed by UGI series. Endoscopic repair has remained successful in four patients at 8-46 months follow-up. Endoscopic repair of small GGFs using endoclips is feasible. It must be considered as an option for management of small GGFs, given its safety, and ease of performance compared to revisional surgery.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Reliable detection of arrhythmias based on digital processing of Electrocardiogram (ECG) signals is vital in providing suitable and timely treatment to a cardiac patient. Due to corruption of ECG signals with multiple frequency noise and presence of multiple arrhythmic events in a cardiac rhythm, computerized interpretation of abnormal ECG rhythms is a challenging task. This paper focuses a Fuzzy C- Mean (FCM) clustered Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) and Multi Layered Feed Forward Network (MLFFN) for the discrimination of eight types of ECG beats. Parameters such as fourth order Auto Regressive (AR) coefficients along with Spectral Entropy (SE) are extracted from each ECG beat and feature reduction has been carried out using FCM clustering. The cluster centers form the input of neural network classifiers. The extensive analysis of Massachusetts Institute of Technology- Beth Israel Hospital (MIT-BIH) arrhythmia database shows that FCM clustered PNNs is superior in cardiac arrhythmia classification than FCM clustered MLFFN with an overall accuracy of 99.05%, 97.14%, respectively.

Hide Abstract
Aspergillus strain SA 58, showing considerable beta glucosidase production was selected as the potential strain. The fungus showed enzyme production in both acidic and alkaline pH. A temperature of 35 degrees C was found to be optimum for enzyme production. Maximum enzyme production was seen when pectin was used as the carbon source (80 U/ml). In solid-state fermentation, an enzyme production of 6200 U/g Initial Dry Substrate was noted. The strain produced two extra cellular enzymes and two intra cellular enzymes. For both the extra cellular enzymes (BGL A and BGL B), 60 degrees C was found to be optimum temperature for activity. BGL A showed an optimum pH of 4.0 while BGL B showed an optimum pH of 3.0 for activity. Both the enzymes showed a second peak of activity at pH 9.0. Both BGL A and BGL B showed high thermal stabilities with residual activities of 86% and 85% even after 6h of incubation at 50 degrees C.

Hide Abstract
The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure (RYGBP) is an effective treatment for morbid obesity. Anastomotic strictures are a common complication after RYGBP. This study examines the frequency of post-RYGBP gastrojejunal strictures (GJS), methods of evaluation, and the outcome of endoscopic intervention. Medical records of patients who had RYGBP for morbid obesity at our institution during four consecutive years were reviewed for patient demographics, medical comorbidities, surgical technique, and outcomes. Radiographic and endoscopic findings of those patients suspected to have GJS were noted. The impact of patient-related variables and surgical technique on risk of GJS, time to diagnosis of GJS, and treatment outcomes for GJS was determined. Of 888 patients, 503 had open RYGBP (57%) and 385 laparoscopic RYGBP (43%). Ninety-four patients (10.6%) underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) for possible GJS and 58 (6.5%) were found to have anastomotic stricture. Laparoscopic RYGBP was associated with increased incidence of GJS (43/385, 11.1%) compared with open RYGBP (15/503 or 2.9%, P = 0.0003). A total of 125 dilations were performed with an average of 2.2 dilations per patient. None of the strictures needed surgical revision. There were four perforations (3.2%) related to EGD. Mean time to diagnosis of GJS was 66.2 days. Eighty-seven of 94 patients underwent radiologic upper gastrointestinal (UGI) evaluation prior to EGD. UGI evaluation demonstrated a positive predictive value (PPV) of only 66% [95% confidence interval (CI) 52-77], and negative predictive value (NPV) of 83% (95% CI 65-93). Laparoscopic GBP is associated with increased risk of GJS. Endoscopic dilation of GJS is an effective treatment with minimal risk. Radiographic studies appear to have poor specificity for diagnosis of GJS and have a low positive predictive value. EGD should be performed in all suspected cases of GJS.

The role of electrocardiogram (ECG) as a noninvasive technique for detecting and diagnosing cardiac problems cannot be overemphasized. This paper introduces a fuzzy C-mean (FCM) clustered probabilistic neural network (PNN) for the discrimination of eight types of ECG beats. The performance has been compared with FCM clustered multi layered feed forward network (MLFFN) trained with back propagation algorithm. Important parameters are extracted from each ECG beat and feature reduction has been carried out using FCM clustering. The cluster centers form the input of neural network classifiers. The extensive analysis using the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database has shown an average classification accuracy of 97.54% with FCM clustered MLFFN and 99.58% with FCM clustered PNN. Fuzzy clustering improves the classification speed as well. The result reveals the capability of the FCM clustered PNN in the computer-aided diagnosis of ECG abnormalities.

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract.
