    Rail residual stress distributions can be complex and variable in nature, as different manufacturing techniques produce varying stress magnitudes and distributions. To evaluate the effect of residual stresses on rail integrity, an analysis technique was sought that could quantify the effect of these stresses on web crack propagation.

    The computer program LS-DYNA3D was used to simulate the behavior of a specific, though representative, heavy truck cab-over tractor-trailer vehicle during a full 180° rollover event. These simulations provide a key component in the development of a physical testing procedure for evaluating structural integrity and occupant crash protection system designs in heavy trucks.

    7/12/2017 · Failure Analysis
    Plaintiff was admitted to a health care facility with ventricular tachycardia (VT). He had a normal coronary angiography with moderate left ventricular (LV) function and was referred for an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implant procedure. A diagnosis of right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia was made. He was then admitted for an ablation procedure in March 2005, which was successful. In April 2005, he was readmitted with a further occurrence of tachycardia which required emergency cardio version due to hemodynamic compromise and a temporary pacing wire was placed. There was a further attempt at ablation that was again successful and the LV function noted now to have deteriorated and was noted as having poor functioning. On this basis he was considered a candidate for an ICD implant. There was a further reoccurrence of an episode of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in March and April 2006 which was treated medically and he was discharged.

    Protocols for producing experimental heart failure by rapid ventricular pacing are well established [1]; however, for safety reasons, commonly used clinical pacemakers do not allow pacing rates that are sufficient to induce either heart failure (HF) or atrial fibrillation (AF).

    6/27/2012 · Medical
    Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been shown to improve symptoms and survival in patients with systolic dysfunction and prolonged ventricular depolarization (wide QRS).1-8 However, atrial fibrillation (AF) may cause significant problems in these patients, particularly when the ventricular rate exceeds the device programmable rate.

    4/23/2012 · Medical
    Recent studies have demonstrated that ventricular rate control is a viable treatment strategy for patients in atrial fibrillation (AF). The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not the benefits of coupled pacing (ie, a proposed rate control therapy) could be used during persistent AF.

    The primary management of hydatidiform moles remains surgical evacuation followed by human chorionic gonadotropin level monitoring. Although suction dilatation and evacuation is the most frequent technique for molar evacuation, hysterectomy is a viable option in older patients who do not wish to preserve fertility. Despite advances in chemotherapy regimens for treating malignant gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, hysterectomy and other extirpative procedures continue to play a role in the management of patients with both lowrisk and high-risk gestational trophoblastic neoplasia.

    Abstract Aim: To evaluate clinical outcomes and identify factors predictive for recurrence in patients with 1988 (FIGO) stage IA uterine endometrioid carcinoma. Patients and Methods: Patients who underwent hysterectomy for stage IA carcinoma were identified in our database. Fisher's exact and ?2 tests were used to identify factors that influenced outcome. Survival plots were generated according to Kaplan-Meier product-limit method and the log-rank test was used to determine significance. Results: A total of 121 patients were identified.

    Purpose Uterine clear-cell carcinoma (UCCC) is a rare subset of type II endometrial carcinoma with a poor prognosis relative to the most common type of endometrioid carcinoma. Due to its rarity, there has been limited direct evidence of the efficacy of specific adjuvant therapy posthysterectomy in women with UCCC. We present a review of current literature regarding adjuvant therapy of uterine clear cell carcinoma.

    OBJECTIVE: To report on the perioperative outcomes after robotically assisted total hysterectomy for benign indications in a large patient population with predominantly complex pathology.
