Purpose of the study : The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of 3D and 2D vision on performance of novice subjects using da Vinci robotic system. Methods : 224 nurses without any surgical experience were divided into two groups and executed a motor task with the robotic system in 2D for one group and with the robotic system in 3D for the other group. Time to perform the task was recorded. Results : Our data showed significant better time performance in 3D view (24.67 +/- 11.2) than in 2D view (40.26 +/- 17.49, P < 0.001). Conclusions : Our findings emphasized the advantage of 3D vision over 2D view in performing surgical task, encouraging the development of efficient and less expensive 3D systems in order to improve the accuracy of surgical gesture, the resident training and the operating time.

Most soniferous fishes producing sounds with their swimbladder utilize relatively simple mechanisms: contraction and relaxation of a unique pair of sonic muscles cause rapid movements of the swimbladder resulting in sound production. Here we describe the sonic mechanism for Ophidion barbatum, which includes three pairs of sonic muscles, highly transformed vertebral centra and ribs, a neural arch that pivots and a swimbladder whose anterior end is modified into a bony structure, the rocker bone. The ventral and intermediate muscles cause the rocker bone to swivel inward, compressing the swimbladder, and this action is antagonized by the dorsal muscle. Unlike other sonic systems in which the muscle contraction rate determines sound fundamental frequency, we hypothesize that slow contraction of these antagonistic muscles produces a series of cycles of swimbladder vibration.

This article studies disruption tolerant networks (DTNs) where each node knows the probabilistic distribution of contacts with other nodes. It proposes a framework that allows one to formalize the behaviour of such a network. It generalizes extreme cases that have been studied before where (a) either nodes only know their contact frequency with each other or (b) they have a perfect knowledge of who meets who and when. This paper then gives an example of how this framework can be used; it shows how one can find a packet forwarding algorithm optimized to meet the 'delay/bandwidth consumption' trade-off: packets are duplicated so as to (statistically) guarantee a given delay or delivery probability, but not too much so as to reduce the bandwidth, energy, and memory consumption.

Background: The aim of this study was to analyze the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a modern medical imaging technique in radiotherapy with special emphasis on the integration of MRI and a novel technique in brachytherapy to optimize treatment outcome in cervical cancer. Methods: In addition to the CT based shrinking volume conformal teletherapy in 31 patients with locally advanced cervical cancer, MRI examination with a special adjustable applicator at the treatment site was performed for the brachytherapy planning. To avoid excessive doses to the healthy structures during complex cervical radiotherapy isodose curves were calculated upon the information of the MR image and dose distribution was evaluated. Results: The consecutive application of CT and MRI limited the possibility for overdosage of the critical organs and undertreatment of the advanced tumor spread in all cases. The overall response rate for the complex treatment was 74.2% with complete regression in 25.8% of the cases. Based on the exact information of the three dimensional digital data radiation doses could be optimized without increasing the possibility of acute complications rate. Conclusion: The introduction of 3D treatment planning for teletherapy pelvic and boost irradiation of cervical carcinoma as well as for the brachytherapy part of the complex treatment is to be recommended.

In this paper we consider the question of parameter identifiability for biochemical reaction networks, as typically encountered in systems biology. Specifically, we are interested in deriving conditions on the biochemical reaction network and on the measured outputs that guarantee identifiability of the parameters. Taking the specific system structure of biochemical reaction networks into account, we derive sufficient conditions for local parameter identifiability based on a suitable system expansion which does not any more directly depend on the parameters. Rather, as shown, the problem of identifiability can be recast as the question of observability of the (parameter free) expanded system. The conditions derived are exemplified considering a simple example [less ▲]

Beginnings of cardiac surgery were primarily pericardiac surgery: persisting ductus ligation (Gross), coarctation repair (Crafoord) and Blalock's seminal operation of arterio-pulmonary shunt. The first really open cardiac procedure is due to Gibbon who worked up an apparatus capable to assume heart and lungs function. In the same time, Lillehei operated on congenital cardiac lesions in children with the concept of "cross-circulation". For a long time confined in Minneapolis and Rochester, cardiac surgery spread all over USA. Starr lead the valvular surgery with the use of caged ball prosthesis (Starr-Edwards); Effler and Favaloro developed coronary surgery; outside USA, the Russian Kolessov used for the first time an internal mammary artery. As far as cardiac transplantation is concerned, a debt is due to Hardy, but the merit of the-first successful cardiac transplantation goes to South-African Barnard. [less ▲]
