Head Injuries, Penetrating: Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.Brain Injuries: Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Head Injuries, Closed: Traumatic injuries to the cranium where the integrity of the skull is not compromised and no bone fragments or other objects penetrate the skull and dura mater. This frequently results in mechanical injury being transmitted to intracranial structures which may produce traumatic brain injuries, hemorrhage, or cranial nerve injury. (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p417)Wounds and Injuries: Damage inflicted on the body as the direct or indirect result of an external force, with or without disruption of structural continuity.Craniocerebral Trauma: Traumatic injuries involving the cranium and intracranial structures (i.e., BRAIN; CRANIAL NERVES; MENINGES; and other structures). Injuries may be classified by whether or not the skull is penetrated (i.e., penetrating vs. nonpenetrating) or whether there is an associated hemorrhage.Behavioral Symptoms: Observable manifestations of impaired psychological functioning.Cerebral Hemorrhage: Bleeding into one or both CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES including the BASAL GANGLIA and the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is often associated with HYPERTENSION and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.Dura Mater: The outermost of the three MENINGES, a fibrous membrane of connective tissue that covers the brain and the spinal cord.Intracranial Hemorrhages: Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.Pia Mater: The innermost layer of the three meninges covering the brain and spinal cord. It is the fine vascular membrane that lies under the ARACHNOID and the DURA MATER.Hematoma, Subdural: Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE between the DURA MATER and the arachnoidal layer of the MENINGES. This condition primarily occurs over the surface of a CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, but may develop in the spinal canal (HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL, SPINAL). Subdural hematoma can be classified as the acute or the chronic form, with immediate or delayed symptom onset, respectively. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.Lawyers: Persons whose profession is to give legal advice and assistance to clients and represent them in legal matters. (American Heritage Dictionary, 3d ed)Malingering: Simulation of symptoms of illness or injury with intent to deceive in order to obtain a goal, e.g., a claim of physical illness to avoid jury duty.ColoradoJudicial Role: The kind of action or activity proper to the judiciary, particularly its responsibility for decision making.Living Wills: Written, witnessed declarations in which persons request that if they become disabled beyond reasonable expectation of recovery, they be allowed to die rather than be kept alive by extraordinary means. (Bioethics Thesaurus)Trauma Centers: Specialized hospital facilities which provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for trauma patients.Trauma Severity Indices: Systems for assessing, classifying, and coding injuries. These systems are used in medical records, surveillance systems, and state and national registries to aid in the collection and reporting of trauma.Injury Severity Score: An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.Public Opinion: The attitude of a significant portion of a population toward any given proposition, based upon a measurable amount of factual evidence, and involving some degree of reflection, analysis, and reasoning.AccidentsDiffuse Axonal Injury: A relatively common sequela of blunt head injury, characterized by a global disruption of axons throughout the brain. Associated clinical features may include NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; DEMENTIA; and other disorders.Brain Injury, Chronic: Conditions characterized by persistent brain damage or dysfunction as sequelae of cranial trauma. This disorder may result from DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; BRAIN EDEMA; and other conditions. Clinical features may include DEMENTIA; focal neurologic deficits; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; AKINETIC MUTISM; or COMA.Glasgow Coma Scale: A scale that assesses the response to stimuli in patients with craniocerebral injuries. The parameters are eye opening, motor response, and verbal response.Blast Injuries: Injuries resulting when a person is struck by particles impelled with violent force from an explosion. Blast causes pulmonary concussion and hemorrhage, laceration of other thoracic and abdominal viscera, ruptured ear drums, and minor effects in the central nervous system. (From Dorland, 27th ed)Glasgow Outcome Scale: A scale that assesses the outcome of serious craniocerebral injuries, based on the level of regained social functioning.Brain Concussion: A nonspecific term used to describe transient alterations or loss of consciousness following closed head injuries. The duration of UNCONSCIOUSNESS generally lasts a few seconds, but may persist for several hours. Concussions may be classified as mild, intermediate, and severe. Prolonged periods of unconsciousness (often defined as greater than 6 hours in duration) may be referred to as post-traumatic coma (COMA, POST-HEAD INJURY). (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p418)Subdural Space: Potential cavity which separates the ARACHNOID MATER from the DURA MATER.Battered Child Syndrome: A clinical condition resulting from repeated physical and psychological injuries inflicted on a child by the parents or caregivers.Hematoma, Subdural, Chronic: Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE with delayed onset of neurological symptoms. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.Retinal Hemorrhage: Bleeding from the vessels of the retina.Empyema, Subdural: An intracranial or rarely intraspinal suppurative process invading the space between the inner surface of the DURA MATER and the outer surface of the ARACHNOID.Shaken Baby Syndrome: Brain injuries resulted from vigorous shaking of an infant or young child held by the chest, shoulders, or extremities causing extreme cranial acceleration. It is characterized by the intracranial and intraocular hemorrhages with no evident external trauma. Serious cases may result in death.Pituitary Function Tests: Examinations that evaluate functions of the pituitary gland.Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Pituitary Gland, Anterior: The anterior glandular lobe of the pituitary gland, also known as the adenohypophysis. It secretes the ADENOHYPOPHYSEAL HORMONES that regulate vital functions such as GROWTH; METABOLISM; and REPRODUCTION.Pituitary Diseases: Disorders involving either the ADENOHYPOPHYSIS or the NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. These diseases usually manifest as hypersecretion or hyposecretion of PITUITARY HORMONES. Neoplastic pituitary masses can also cause compression of the OPTIC CHIASM and other adjacent structures.Pituitary Neoplasms: Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.Vertebral Artery Dissection: Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.Vertebral Artery: The first branch of the SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY with distribution to muscles of the NECK; VERTEBRAE; SPINAL CORD; CEREBELLUM; and interior of the CEREBRUM.Aneurysm, Dissecting: Aneurysm caused by a tear in the TUNICA INTIMA of a blood vessel leading to interstitial HEMORRHAGE, and splitting (dissecting) of the vessel wall, often involving the AORTA. Dissection between the intima and media causes luminal occlusion. Dissection at the media, or between the media and the outer adventitia causes aneurismal dilation.Carotid Artery, Internal, Dissection: The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.Lateral Medullary Syndrome: INFARCTION of the dorsolateral aspect of MEDULLA OBLONGATA in the BRAIN STEM. It is caused by occlusion of the VERTEBRAL ARTERY and/or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Clinical manifestations vary with the size of infarction, but may include loss of pain and temperature sensation in the ipsilateral face and contralateral body below the chin; ipsilateral HORNER SYNDROME; ipsilateral ATAXIA; DYSARTHRIA; VERTIGO; nausea, hiccup; dysphagia; and VOCAL CORD PARALYSIS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p801)Vertebrobasilar Insufficiency: Localized or diffuse reduction in blood flow through the vertebrobasilar arterial system, which supplies the BRAIN STEM; CEREBELLUM; OCCIPITAL LOBE; medial TEMPORAL LOBE; and THALAMUS. Characteristic clinical features include SYNCOPE; lightheadedness; visual disturbances; and VERTIGO. BRAIN STEM INFARCTIONS or other BRAIN INFARCTION may be associated.Eye Injuries: Damage or trauma inflicted to the eye by external means. The concept includes both surface injuries and intraocular injuries.Child Abuse: Abuse of children in a family, institutional, or other setting. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Sinus Thrombosis, Intracranial: Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CRANIAL SINUSES, large endothelium-lined venous channels situated within the SKULL. Intracranial sinuses, also called cranial venous sinuses, include the superior sagittal, cavernous, lateral, petrous sinuses, and many others. Cranial sinus thrombosis can lead to severe HEADACHE; SEIZURE; and other neurological defects.Cranial Sinuses: Large endothelium-lined venous channels situated between the two layers of DURA MATER, the endosteal and the meningeal layers. They are devoid of valves and are parts of the venous system of dura mater. Major cranial sinuses include a postero-superior group (such as superior sagittal, inferior sagittal, straight, transverse, and occipital) and an antero-inferior group (such as cavernous, petrosal, and basilar plexus).Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis: Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.Cerebral Veins: Veins draining the cerebrum.Superior Sagittal Sinus: The long large endothelium-lined venous channel on the top outer surface of the brain. It receives blood from a vein in the nasal cavity, runs backwards, and gradually increases in size as blood drains from veins of the brain and the DURA MATER. Near the lower back of the CRANIUM, the superior sagittal sinus deviates to one side (usually the right) and continues on as one of the TRANSVERSE SINUSES.Neuroradiography: Radiography of the central nervous system.Cavernous Sinus: An irregularly shaped venous space in the dura mater at either side of the sphenoid bone.

Transorbital penetration accounts for one-quarter of the penetrating head injuries (PHIs) in adults and half of those in children. Injuries that traverse (with complete penetration of) the brainstem are often fatal, with survivors rarely seen in clinical practice. Here, the authors describe the case of a 16-year-old male who suffered and recovered from an accidental transorbital PHI traversing the brainstem-the first case of complete neurological recovery following such injury. Neuroimaging captured the trajectory of the initial injury. A delayed-onset carotid cavernous fistula and the subsequent development of internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysms were managed by endovascular embolization.. The authors also review the relevant literature. Sixteen cases of imaging-confirmed PHI traversing the brainstem have been reported, 14 involving the pons and 12 penetrating via the transorbital route. Management and outcome of PHI are informed by object velocity, material, entry point, trajectory, ...

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, head traumas in young children are common. Children suffering from trauma-induced head injuries present with headaches, cognitive impairments, changes in personality, and sleep disturbances. Dizziness/vertigo is also a common diagnosis for a significant portion of children presenting with trauma (Faul et al., 2010). Head traumas are frequently subdivided into blunt head traumas and penetrating head traumas. Blunt head injuries, including whiplash injuries, can result in dizziness from fracture of the temporal bone or labyrinthine concussion. In cases of a fracture or concussion in which the labyrinth or vestibular nerve is affected, children can experience severe vertigo with nystagmus and nausea, indicating unilateral impairment in the peripheral vestibular system (i.e., end-organ or vestibular nerve). Penetrating head injuries have been reported to cause vertigo secondary to perilymphatic fistula. As in adults, pediatric benign ...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of nondegenerative acquired brain injury resulting from a bump, blow, or jolt to the head (or body) or a penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain function (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2015). TBI can cause brain damage that is focal (e.g., gunshot wound), diffuse (e.g., shaken baby syndrome), or both. Symptoms can vary depending on site of lesion, extent of damage to the brain, and the childs age or stage of development. The functional impact of TBI in children can be different than in adults-deficits may not be immediately apparent because the pediatric brain is still developing. TBI in children is a chronic disease process rather than a one-time event, because symptoms may change and unfold over time (DePompei & Tyler, in press; Masel & DeWitt, 2010). TBI can result from a primary injury or a secondary injury (see common classifications of TBI for more details). Severity of TBI may be categorized as mild, moderate, or ...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as intracranial injury, occurs when an external force injures the brain. TBI can be classified based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features (e.g., occurring in a specific location or over a widespread area). Head injury is a broader category that may involve damage to other structures such as the scalp and skull. TBI can result in physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral symptoms, and outcome can range from complete recovery to permanent disability or death. Causes include falls, vehicle collisions, and violence. Brain trauma occurs as a consequence of a sudden acceleration or deceleration within the cranium or by a complex combination of both movement and sudden impact. In addition to the damage caused at the moment of injury, a variety of events in the minutes to days following the injury may result in secondary injury. These processes include alterations in ...
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), also referred to as intracranial injury, occurs when an external force traumatically injures the brain. TBI might be classified primarily based on severity, mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features (e.g., occurring in a specific place or more than a widespread region). Head injury typically...
By Richard H. Adler, Attorney at Law. Over 1.4 million individuals sustain traumatic brain injuries each year in the United States. Between 400,000 and 500,000 of these head injuries are severe enough to require hospitalization annually. The financial cost of the diagnostic and rehabilitative/medical programs for traumatic head injury is estimated to be 3.9 billion dollars per year. The cost to society is far greater when one considers how traumatic head injuries may prevent individuals from achieving their full potential and contributing to society, while disrupting the lives of their family and friends.. Head injuries are generally classified as "open" or "closed." An open head injury is one in which damage to the brain is caused by a fracture or penetrating wound. In a penetrating head injury, the dural covering of the brain has been breached by an object, such as a bullet or a piece of fractured skull. In such cases, ...
While post-traumatic epilepsy is yet another psychosocial burden for the severely injured patient, very few have epilepsy sufficiently severe to require complex anticonvulsant regimens or referral for residential investigation and treatment. Nevertheless, its presence precludes driving and may rekindle carer concerns at a time when readjustment to the other consequences of injury is just beginning.. Just as the brain damage resulting from penetrating head injury may increase the risk of epilepsy nearly 600 fold during the first year, so after blunt injury is the risk significantly increased by markers of brain damage; particularly to the cortex, indicated by a (depressed) skull fracture, an intracranial clot requiring surgery, and altered awareness for more than 24 hours associated with radiological evidence of brain contusion.11,12 As imaging improves it is easy to see how even minor injury followed by only an hour or two of PTA can occasionally be followed by ...
Pain, especially headache, is a common complication following a TBI.[1] Being unconscious and lying still for long periods can cause blood clots to form (deep venous thrombosis), which can cause pulmonary embolism.[21] Other serious complications for patients who are unconscious, in a coma, or in a vegetative state include pressure sores, pneumonia or other infections, and progressive multiple organ failure.[1]. The risk of post-traumatic seizures increases with severity of trauma (image at right) and is particularly elevated with certain types of brain trauma such as cerebral contusions or hematomas.[22] As many as 50% of people with penetrating head injuries will develop seizures.[20] People with early seizures, those occurring within a week of injury, have an increased risk of post-traumatic epilepsy (recurrent seizures occurring more than a week after the initial trauma)[23] though seizures can appear a decade or more after the initial injury and the ...
Title:18FDG-PET/CT in Traumatic Brain Injury Patients: The Relative Hypermetabolism of Vermis Cerebelli as a Medium and Long Term Predictor of Outcome. VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 1.

Abstract:Purpose: Both, the constant presence of apparent hypermetabolism of the vermis cerebelli compared to the cerebellar hemispheres in traumatic brain injury, and the presence of a good relationship between the intensity of this sign and the severity of the clinical conditions have been addressed in previous studies. Aim of the present paper is to evaluate the possible correlation between the intensity of the finding and the medium and long term outcome in a group of patients. Materials and Methods: ...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with Rep Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) and Sen Robert Menendez (D-NJ), recently announced that CDC will form an expert panel to establish national guidelines for pediatric traumatic brain injury and concussion. This initiative was a major component of the Concussion Treatment and Care Tools (ConTACT) Act, legislation that was not passed into law but was supported by APTA in past congressional sessions. This announcement marks a positive step forward by the federal government through a united commitment by Congress and the Department of Health and Human Services to address the important issue of concussion management. The expert panel will define the need, scope, and expectations of federal guidelines for pediatric mild traumatic brain injury, including those for student athletes. The national guidelines will take into account advice from experts across the country, laying the foundation for all 50 states to implement a ...
The Brain Trauma Foundation is presenting a free webinar on Assessment & Prognosis in Severe Traumatic Brain Injury on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 12-1 Eastern Time. This webinar is open to all. Survivors of severe traumatic brain injury face a wide range of possible prognoses, from nearly complete recovery to permanent unconsciousness. The ability to predict prognosis at an early point is limited, but the time until return of consciousness (e.g., command following) and orientation (e.g., duration of post-traumatic amnesia) are useful predictors in the early days and weeks. More specialized assessment techniques exist of those with persistent disorders of...
A carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) results from an abnormal communication between the arterial and venous systems within the cavernous sinus in the skull. It is a type of arteriovenous fistula. As arterial blood under high pressure enters the cavernous sinus, the normal venous return to the cavernous sinus is impeded and this causes engorgement of the draining veins, manifesting most dramatically as a sudden engorgement and redness of the eye of the same side. Carotid cavernous fistulae may form following closed or penetrating head trauma, surgical damage, rupture of an intracavernous aneurysm, or in association with connective tissue disorders, vascular diseases and dural fistulas. Various classifications have been proposed for CCF. They may be divided into low-flow or high-flow, traumatic or spontaneous and direct or indirect. The traumatic CCF typically occurs after a basal skull fracture. The spontaneous ...
Techniques disclosed herein include systems and methods for a bone screw and self-retaining driver. The system includes a mechanism that enables a bone screw to be rigidly attached to a screwdriver for manipulation and transfer of bone fragments and grafts to a fixation site, such as during surgery. The system includes a cannulated bone screw that has a drive connection that engages with a drive structures of a screwdriver. The bone screw also includes a structural connector that securely attaches to or receives an internal shaft or rod of the screwdriver. The internal shaft or rod of the screwdriver can rotate and slide independent of an outer shaft of screwdriver. Accordingly, the internal shaft of the screwdriver can rigidly connect with the bone screw enabling applied torque to the screwdriver to be transferred to the bone screw, without the bone screw falling off of the drive connection.

The study was a partnership between scientists at UM SOM and researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Womens Hospital, Harvard Medical School and Yale University. Besides Dr. Scalea, the other UM SOM researcher was Deborah M. Stein, MD, MPH, FACS, FCCM, R Adams Cowley Professor in Shock & Trauma, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Chief of Trauma and Director of Neurotrauma Critical Care.. The researchers looked at 413 patients, most whom were treated at the Shock Trauma Center. All of the patients had penetrating brain injuries, 93 percent of them from gunshot wounds. Of the overall group, 42 percent, 175 in total, survived. The researchers looked at a range of variables to see which seemed to correlate with survival.. One key variable appears to be the level of consciousness upon arrival. The researchers used a measure known as the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), which tracks patient awareness after injury. The higher the ...

Background: mental practice with motor imagery has been shown to promote motor skill acquisition in healthy subjects and patients. Although lesions of the common motor imagery and motor execution neural network are expected to impair motor imagery ability, functional equivalence appears to be at least partially preserved in stroke patients.Aim: to identify brain regions that are mandatory for preserved motor imagery ability after stroke.Method: thirty-seven patients with hemiplegia after a first time stroke participated. Motor imagery ability was measured using a Motor Imagery questionnaire and temporal congruence test. A voxelwise lesion symptom mapping approach was used to identify neural correlates of motor imagery in this cohort within the first year post-stroke.Results: poor motor imagery vividness was associated with lesions in the left putamen, left ventral premotor cortex and long association fibres linking parieto-occipital regions with the dorsolateral premotor and prefrontal areas. Poor
Background: Researchers have investigated the performance of face mask removal tools for spine injury management in football but not the effects of football equipment design. Hypotheses: Various styles or designs of football helmet equipment (helmets, face masks, loop straps) affect face mask removal efficiency. A cordless screwdriver performs more efficiently than do cutting tools. Study Design: Controlled laboratory study. Methods: Nineteen certified athletic trainers were randomly assigned to group 1 (cordless screwdriver and the FM Extractor) or group 2 (cordless screwdriver and the Trainers Angel). Subjects randomly performed face mask removal for 6 conditions composed of helmet (3), face mask (3), and loop strap (5) combinations. Time, head movement, perceived difficulty, and success rates were measured. Results: Multiple significant differences were found in time, movement, and perceived difficulty between the 6 helmet equipment conditions. The Shockblocker loop strap was consistently superior
Nail guns have replaced hammers in wood frame construction. They are powerful, easy to operate and boost productivity for nailing tasks. Nail guns are a leading cause of injury among residential carpenters and responsible for an estimated 37,000 emergency room visits each year, of which 60% are occupationally-related. Puncture wounds to the hands and fingers are most common, but more serious injuries and deaths occur using nail guns.. All nail guns have the potential to cause serious injury. Using a nail gun with a bump or automatic trigger (also known as contact trip trigger) can result in unintended nail discharge. Other risks include lack of training, working fast and keeping the trigger squeezed when not nailing. Using a nail gun with a single shot or full sequential trigger reduces the risk of injury.. ...
During the Cold War, Washington state became an important military defensive and deterrence location. Military basing included radars, fighter-interceptors, long-range bombers, submarines, Nike missiles, and intercontinental ballistic missiles. The intercontinental ballistic missiles were located in the central and eastern areas of the state. This basing was close to the Soviet Union while also being inland of the more vulnerable coast. Available for the missile sites were large open areas in the vicinity of existing air force bases. Two types of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles were installed in Washington state. The Atlas E, named for the Atlas of Greek mythology, was placed at nine sites around Fairchild Air Force Base, located near Spokane. Each site had one missile. The Titan I, named for its power (in Greek mythology Titan was the father of Zeus), was placed at three bases in the vicinity of Larson Air Force Base at Moses Lake. Both the Atlas and the Titan I missiles had been rushed ...
Introduction: Thymic malignancies represent a wide range of clinical, histological and molecular entities, with considerable heterogeneity even among tumors of the same histotype. Thymomas are rare neoplasms arising from tissue elements of the thymus and developing in the anterior mediastinum, with an annual incidence of only 0.15 cases per 100, 000 person-years. They can be associated with a variety of systemic and autoimmune disorders, such as pure red cell aplasia, pancytopenia, hypogammaglobulinemia, collagen-vascular disease, and most commonly with myasthenia gravis. Surgical resection remains the cornerstone of therapy for early-stage disease, while in advanced or recurrent forms, a multimodality approach incorporating radiation and chemotherapy is required. Platinum with anthracycline-based chemotherapy is an optimal combination for advanced thymoma. Case Report: We hereby present an interesting case of thymoma which was detected on imaging for routine health check-up and was managed successfully

The vast majority of Irans heavy artillery rockets and ballistic missiles are short-range of less than about 500 kilometers. Most of Irans ballistic missiles in fact are Scud-B and Scud-Cs, with a majority likely being Scud Cs, which are 500 km range capable. Iran views its short-range ballistic missiles (SRBM) capability as necessary for battlefield and tactical military purposes. These missiles could not strike U.S. or allied bases in the region unless they were moved far from their operating base and launched from vulnerable positions along Irans Persian Gulf coastline. This is not likely because of logistical and operational security reasons. Although these SRBMs are not very accurate, they could be fired against economic or civilian targets. Also, any such missile attacks against U.S. bases, while not militarily decisive, could disrupt or complicate (but not halt) base operations ...
Tokyo, Japan. Having been bombed twice with atomic weapons, residents of Japan are inclined to take the North Korean threat more seriously than others. Now late word comes a North Korean missile was launched and has landed in Japanese territorial waters.. The ballistic missile forces of the DPRK have carried out a missile test yesterday, firing a short-range nuclear capable missile almost 300 miles into the waters of Japans economic zone raising the public panic level in Japan.. North Koreas missile was launched from the coastal town of Wonsan, landing about 200 nautical miles off the Japanese coast, said Tokyos Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Sugga.. The Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in response to the test: "North Koreas provocation by ignoring repeated warnings from international society is absolutely unacceptable.". Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Sugga added that officials would discuss North Korea with Chinese President Xi Jinpings senior foreign policy adviser ...
As for your second question, I do reglue tires a lot - for changing tread patterns, swapping out to road tires, or due to punctures - and I find it to be super easy with the Belgian Tape, once I manage to get the tire off, which is not easy. The tape usually comes off with the tire, although some hunks tend to stay on the rim. (This is as opposed to the Tufo or Jantex tapes, with which the tire always came off of the tape easily, leaving me to simply peel the tape off of the rim). I dig off the chunks of tape left on the rim with a screwdriver, scrub at the rim with a wire brush until there is only a thin layer of hardened glue left, dig off any remaining large glue lumps with a screwdriver, blow off the glue dust with compressed air, and scrub the rim with rubbing alcohol. Then, if its a road tire, I put two layers of glue on the rim and glue on a tire that has had two layers of glue on it as well. If its a cross tire, I glue new Belgian Tape on, followed by the tire. Works great.. To get ...
The Darth Vader Mood Light* is perfect for any Star Wars fan and a great gift for a brother or boyfriend(who may I add is incredibly jealous and has stolen it for his own bedside table), the product itself coming in two different sizes to fit with your personal space. I think both are a great value for money, this larger mood light only being £32.99 which I think for official Star Wars merch is an absolute bargain. All you need is batteries which easily fit into the bottom. Within the product box is a screwdriver to help you with taking the bottom off to fit in the batteries, which I thought was good because if youre no DIY girl like myself, you wont have a screwdriver in your house. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Orbitocranial wooden foreign body diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging. Dry wood can be isodense with air and orbital fat by computed tomography. AU - Specht, Charles S.. AU - Varga, John H.. AU - Jalali, Michael M.. AU - Edelstein, Jeffrey P.. PY - 1992/1/1. Y1 - 1992/1/1. N2 - In computed tomographic (CT) scans, a wooden foreign body can appear as a lucency with nearly the same density as air or fat, and it can be indistinguishable from orbital adipose tissue. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can localize these wooden foreign bodies in the orbit. We studied a case in which a wooden golf tee lodged in the right optic canal of a nine-year-old boy. The head portion lodged in the orbital apex and the tip entered the interpeduncular fossa. Clinical examination revealed a right paranasal laceration; the right eye had no light perception and a peripapillary hemorrhage, but was otherwise normal. Surgical exploration and evaluation by CT failed to locate the foreign body. ...
For decades, clinicians have realized that neck problems can cause headaches. For example, early whiplash expert and orthopedic surgeon, Ruth Jackson, MD (1902-1994), published a study in 1947 in the Journal of the American Medical Womens Association titled (1):. The Cervical Syndrome As a Cause of Migraine. In this article, Dr. Jackson notes that at least half of patients suffering from cervical spine problems will also complain of headaches as one of their principle symptoms. Dr. Jackson noted that irritation of the upper cervical spine nerve roots, C1-C2-C3, are most likely to cause headache, and that it is these upper cervical spine nerve roots that are most vulnerable to whiplash trauma. She noted that these cervical spinal post-traumatic headaches may still be present decades later.. •••••. In 1957, Beverly Hills, CA, neurosurgeon Emil Seletz, MD (1907-1999), published a study in the Journal of the International College of Surgeons, titled (2):. Craniocerebral Injuries ...
The crazy Kim dynasty of North Korea has become the scourge of the world now that it has nuclear weapons, and its been busy conducting missile tests aimed at scaring both its neighbors and the United States.. The latest tests came Monday. According to the BBC, four missiles were fired by North Korea into the Sea of Japan. Three ended up falling in waters where Japan holds economic rights, leading Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to call it a "new stage of threat.". The North Koreans are banned from having any kind of missile test by the United Nations, a group which has sure managed to keep the Kim regime under control.. According to The Washington Post, the North Koreans were practicing to hit American bases in Japan with the missile. However, that might not end so well for them: If the Pentagon is right, America has the perfect remedy if the North Koreans try such an action - and the American Navy is ready to put it into effect.. The Washington Examiner reported that after a similar test last month, ...
The U.S.-made Patriot batteries arent the only pieces of high-tech American military gear in Japan that will have its ears perked up. The U.S. Army also operates two TPY-2 radar facilities used for monitoring North Korean missile tests at the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force bases at Kyogamisaki and Shariki in northern Japan. The U.S. bases another TPY-2 at Andersen Air base in Guam.. The Japanese dont have any other land-based missile defense systems, but have been looking into purchasing the THAAD missile interceptor, which the United States deployed to South Korea earlier this year. Another option is Aegis Ashore, a naval tracking and missile defense system that has been converted to a land defense battery. It is currently operational in Romania, with another opening in Poland in 2018. Several Japanese warships also have the Aegis system.. There are also two large American naval bases in Japan - Saseba and Yokosuka - that harbor over 20 U.S. Navy ships from the U.S. Seventh Fleet. Most of ...
How stupid do you have to be to think that China is a friend of the United States? South Korea and the U.S. were carrying out their usual joint military exercises in the region and so North Korea violated international law and launched four ballistic missiles on Monday in response.. North Korea just figured out how to launch a ballistic missile within the last year or so, something the US figured out how to do in May of 1957. North Korea thinks its a big tough guy on the block now and so they are going to launch ballistic missiles every chance they get.. Being the technologically superior country on the entire plant we have deployed the first elements of our advanced Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea. This missile defense system will protect both South Korea and Japan.. So what does China do? Chinese authorities have closed nearly two dozen retail stores of South Koreas Lotte Group, which approved a land swap with the military last week to allow it ...
Cronkite guessed that the object was about 50-60 feet in diameter, a dull grey color and had no visible means of propulsion. Because the noise of activity around him and the missile engine was so loud, he couldnt tell whether the disc made any noise. He did not notice any coming directly from the object. As Air Force guards ran toward the UFO with their dogs, the disc hovered about 30 feet off of the ground. It suddenly sent out a blue beam of light which struck the missile, a guard and a dog all at the same time. The missile was frozen in mid-air about 70 feet from the launcher as it had taken off. A guard was frozen in mid-step and a dog frozen in mid-air as it had jumped at the disc. Cronkite reminded me that this all happened within the space of about five minutes or less. Suddenly, the missile exploded! After that, the disc vanished. The guard and dog looked alright, but were quickly taken away by medical personnel always present at tests in case anyone became injured. At the same time, ...
A new lesion study from Myrna Schwartz group has recently appeared in the advance access section of the journal Brain. The study examines semantic word retrieval in aphasia using a picture naming task. For years this group has been doing fantastic psycholinguistically informed modeling work (with Gary Dell) on naming errors in aphasia and now adds lesion correlation to their arsenal. Using voxel-based lesion symptom mapping (VLSM) in a sample of 64 aphasics, the authors correlated semantic error rate in naming (misnaming elephant as zebra) with the presence or absence of lesion on a voxel-by-voxel basis. They also administered control tasks, one set that sought to identify non-verbal semantic comprehension deficits (Pyramid and Palms & Camel and Catus Tests) and another that sought to identify verbal comprehension (a word-to-picture matching test & a synonym judgment test). The non-verbal control is the most important because it rules out deficits caused by visual analysis of pictured stimuli ...
Israel is interested in integrating its into its missile defense program with deployable U.S.missile defenses, such as the ground based THAAD and naval AEGIS SM-3 systems. Such integration will enable full interoperability between Israeli made Arrow, and U.S. Patriot missiles and the new missile interceptors developed for the US Missile Defense Agency, to enhance defenses against potential nuclear attack from Iran, if and when this country acquires nuclear capability for its long range missiles. Israeli Patriot and Arrow missile interceptors are already linked with U.S. missile defense systems, such as the AEGIS cruisers and other early warning assets. Israel is seeking to extend these links to full interoperability with the new systems developed in the U.S., to support future deployments of such systems in the region. Israel and the USA are also cooperating on the development of smaller interceptors, to be used against short range missiles and medium to lng range rockets ...
Abstract BACKGROUND: Craniocerebral invasive Aspergillosis of sino-nasal origin has been reported with a very high mortality due to a peculiarly fulminant clinical course. Early diagnosis based on clinical radiological imaging may have an impact on final clinical outcome. This retrospective study focuses on characteristic MR imaging features of Aspergillosis (of sinonasal origin) in immunocompetent patients. METHODS: Medical records of patients were reviewed retrospectively during the period from 1991 to 2003 in the two tertiary care hospitals. All the patients had radiological evidence of disease in the paranasal sinuses with or without intracranial extension. Immunocompetence of patients was assessed on clinical and radiological data. MRI scans (n=20) were reviewed by both clinical neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists separately. MRI was done on 1.5 tesla scanners and both T2-weighted and T1 weighted sequences were obtained followed gadolinium enhanced images. Patients were categorized ...

Since the early 1960s, Israel has developed the regions most advanced missile manufacturing base, and now deploys the regions most advanced ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and missile defense systems. [18] Israels early missile program developments benefited from French and later South African collaboration. [19] Israel also possesses a civil national space program that has previously shared technology with its military missile program. The wide variety of aerial threats posed by numerous adversaries, both state and non-state, has motivated Israel to develop a layered and multi-faceted approach to both offensive and defensive missile technology acquisition.. The Israeli Military likely deployed the short-range Jericho-1 in 1973, followed by the more sophisticated medium-range Jericho-2 in the 1990s. [20] While Israel apparently tested the intermediate-range Jericho-3 in 2008, reportedly displaying a three-stage missile with MIRV (multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles) ...
One fisherman has died and three others have been injured after Taiwan launched a missile by mistake on Friday. The Taiwan authority said the missile was launched from a corvette in Zuoying Harbor in Kaohsiung due to human error. The missile fell into the waters off Penghu Island after hitting a fishing boat. The captain was killed. Three of his crew were injured. Taiwan apologized for the incident.
Fleming ME, Heiner JD, Summers S, April MD, Chin EJ 17(4). 72 - 75 (Journal Article). Background: Soft-tissue occult foreign bodies are a concerning cause of morbidity in the emergency department. The identification of wooden foreign bodies is a unique challenge because they are often not detectable by plain radiography. The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of emergency physician-performed ultrasonography to detect wooden foreign bodies of varying sizes. We hypothesized that sonographic sensitivity would improve with increasing foreign body size. Methods: We conducted a blinded, prospective evaluation using a previously validated, chicken, soft-tissue model to simulate human tissue. We inserted wooden toothpicks of varying lengths (1mm, 2.5mm, 5mm, 7.5mm, 10mm) to a depth of 1cm in five tissue models. Five additional models were left without a foreign body to serve as controls. Fifty emergency physicians with prior ultrasonography training performed sonographic ...
Evidence-based analgosedation in severe pediatric traumatic brain injury (pTBI) management is lacking, and improved pharmacological understanding is needed. This starts with increased knowledge of factors controlling the pharmacokinetics (PK) of unbound drug at the target site (brain) and related drug effect(s). This prospective, descriptive study tested a pediatric physiology-based pharmacokinetic software model by comparing actual plasma and brain extracellular fluid (brainECF) morphine concentrations with predicted concentration-time profiles in severe pTBI patients (Glasgow Coma Scale [GCS], ≤8). Plasma and brainECF samples were obtained after legal guardian written consent and were collected from 8 pTBI patients (75% male; median age, 96 months [34.0-155.5]; median weight, 24 kg [14.5-55.0]) with a need for intracranial pressure monitoring (GCS, ≤8) and receiving continuous morphine infusion (10-40 μg/kg/h). BrainECF samples were obtained by microdialysis. BrainECF samples were taken ...
A 27-year-old woman, gravida 3, para 1, at 9 weeks gestation, initially presented with clinical and ultrasonographic features suggestive of a missed spontaneous abortion for which surgical evacuation was performed. A diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy was made as on histological review no fetal or chorionic tissue was seen. Medical management for an ectopic pregnancy was initiated. Following methotrexate administration she was readmitted with severe abdominal pain. Findings on diagnostic laparoscopy revealed an asymmetrically enlarged swollen fundus. Hysteroscopy was performed concurrently demonstrating an empty uterine cavity. A diagnosis of intramyometrial pregnancy was made based on these findings. An MRI scan was performed postprocedure which supported the diagnosis. In view of her parity and future fertility medical management was adopted with methotrexate. She was followed up until hormone levels returned to baseline and serial scans showed a healed solid collection. ...

She flushed with normal saline. I wanted the cat to go home as the owner mentioned about loose stools in both cases, since the two cats was given Clavulox for the past 9 days and I am worried that the cat would develop full diarrhoea in the Surgery. But Dr Vanessa advised keeping the cat in for observation and I was OK with it. From my experience, this wound would close after removal of debris inside. But it is wise to listen to other vets ...

A displaced fracture may require the broken bones to be realigned, prior to splinting or casting. Patients with severe fractures may be referred to an orthopedic specialist in a hospital setting for treatment. Severe or multiple fractures may require external fixation, which uses an outer metal rod and pins to hold the bone or bones in place until they heal. Internal fixation devices, including plates, rods or screws, may also be used to maintain proper position of the bone during healing. Fractures may take several weeks to several months to heal, depending on the extent of the injury. During the healing phase, physical therapy is often recommended to restore normal muscle strength, range of motion, and flexibility. ...
Our snapping turtle had previous been fitted with a thick metal rod supported with Play-Doh and Epoxy across his lower jaw to fix it in place and allow the bones to heal correctly. This is a strategy that tends to work very well with jaw fractures, as the Play-Doh supports the rod in the exact desired position, easily customizable, while the Epoxy holds the entire contraption firmly in place. Unfortunately, in this case, it has not been working well. The brace worked very effectively for the
This day is different because I am going to go shopping with Rick and Sierra and Ty. I wont need my scooter, so I am going to teach Sierra how to use it. On the same day I had my surgery done, Sierra was in a different hospital having hers. She was born with Multiple epiphyseal displacia. She is one of the youngest patients to show this devastating disorder to the degree that has caused her to have eight surgeries. She suffers so much. This last surgery was to have her left knee totally reconstructed. Two months earlier she had a metal rod screwed to her spine from just below her neck to her waist. She is 12 years old and stands four feet tall, the tallest she will ever be. ...
A water heater can provide an ideal environment for the conversion of sulfate to hydrogen sulfide gas. The water heater can produce hydrogen sulfide gas in two ways - creating a warm environment where sulfur bacteria can live, and sustaining a reaction between sulfate in the water and the water heater anode. A water heater usually contains a metal rod called an anode, which is installed to reduce corrosion of the water heater tank. The anode is usually made of magnesium metal, which can supply electrons that aid in the conversion of sulfate to hydrogen sulfide gas. The anode is 1/2 to 3/4 inches in diameter and 30 to 40 inches long. ...
Yes, dental implants and bridges are both viable methods for replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are metal posts that are integrated into your jawbone and gum structure to replicate tooth roots. A dental crown is placed atop the metal rod to provide a natural-looking appearance and give the functionality of a natural tooth. The way dental implants are applied means they help maintain the integrity of your jawbone and gums in the absence of natural teeth. Dental bridges are a minimally invasive replacement for natural teeth. Anchored by crowns on either side, the dental prosthetic bridges gaps between teeth.. ...

According to police, Garcia assaulted his wife and one of his roommates with a screwdriver and a knife. His roommate left the North Madeira Avenue home just after 10 p.m. and called police reporting Garcia was acting violent and was threatening to kill someone.. "We got there and there was screaming heard inside the house. He was obviously doing something to his wife," he said.. When officers entered the home they met Garcia who was acting "incoherently" and "violent." Garcia then grabbed an officer by the waist and tried to tackle him, which is when officers used a Taser to subdue him.. "The Taser had little to no effect on him, he continued to fight," Maiorama said.. Officers then tied his ankles together. A short time later Garcia began vomiting and went into medical distress. Paramedics took him to a hospital where he later died. ...
The threat posed by shoulder-held antiaircraft missiles to civil aviation will be the topic of a first-of-its-kind seminar to be held Wednesday at the Foreign Ministry. The conference will bring together experts from some 25 countries, including the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, Brazil and India - countries that regularly get together to talk about weapons issues. According to Foreign Ministry officials, Israel - which already faced this threat when two missiles narrowly missed an Arkia airliner carrying 261 passengers in Kenya in 2002 - views this as a real and immediate danger and is interested in mobilizing other countries to reduce the risks. The officials said international interest in the issue stemmed from a desire to keep terrorists from acquiring these weapons and that the efforts had become an integral part of global efforts to fight terrorism.

According to the bill, half of the surplus budget will be spent for expanding the countrys missile activities and the rest will be allocated to the Quds Force to increase its efforts in the fight against terrorist groups, Kazzem Jalali, a senior MP and also head of the Iranian Parliaments Research Center, said.. He added that the bill also requires the defense ministry to prepare an operational plan to increase the countrys defense and deterrence power in the missile sector and present it to the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) in less than one month.. In relevant remarks earlier this week, Chairman of the Iranian Parliaments National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi underlined that a bill to confront US adventurous and terrorist acts in the region is being prepared by the lawmakers.. "This bill is finalized in Parliaments National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, setting some obligations for the government to implement," Boroujerdi said.. The senior ...
Your fingernails are not impervious surfaces. You are not Lady Deathstrike and they are not made of adamantium, though Im sure that we all often pretend like they are when attempting to perform tasks such as trying to use a fingernail as a screwdriver because despite having purchased an entire set none are anywhere to be found at times of need. (or is that just me?) Fingernails are porous and can absorb chemicals that are put on them. You also inhale the vapors during application - that characteristic smell is the aroma of nervous system damage. OSHA even has a special mention on the health hazards that nail techs experience as part of their jobs being exposed to glues, polishes, removers and more. "Workers exposed to chemicals found in glues, polishes, removers, emollients and other salon products may experience negative health effects such as asthma and other respiratory illnesses, skin disorders (e.g. allergic contact dermatitis), liver disease, reproductive loss, and cancer." ...
Tennis elbow is inflammation, soreness, or pain on the outer (lateral) side of the upper arm near the elbow. There may be a partial tear of the tendon fibres, which connect muscle to bone. The tear may be at or near where these fibres begin, on the outside of the elbow.. The part of the muscle that attaches to the bone is called a tendon. Muscles in your forearm attach to the bone on the outside of your elbow. When you use these muscles over and over again, small tears develop in the tendon. Over time, this leads to irritation and pain where the tendon is attached to the bone.. This injury is common in people who play a lot of tennis or other racquet sports, hence the name tennis elbow. Backhand is the most common stroke to cause symptoms. However, any activity that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist (like using a screwdriver) can lead to this condition. Therefore, painters, plumbers, construction workers, cooks, and butchers are also more likely to develop tennis elbow. This condition ...
Celine Dion gave a heartwrenching performance of her hit song My Heart Will Go On at this years Billboard Music Awards . In her music , the belief in the redeeming power of love, be it romantic or quasi-spiritual, is unassailable. Guam is 3,400 km from North Korea.. That is a slap in the face for South Koreas new president, Moon Jae-in, who has promised greater engagement with the North, and suggests that the missile launch was an attempt to improve Pyongyangs negotiating position with a more hardline USA under President Donald Trump.. Leader Kim Jong-Uns ambition is to develop a nuclear weapon capable of striking the United States.. "We call upon the DPRK not to disregard existing opportunities for dialogue and to cease its behaviour which serves only to harm peace and security in the region", it said.. Pictures that have emerged online show the leader of the rogue nation happily watching over as North Korea launched the missile reportedly capable of carrying a "large scale heavy nuclear ...
If Henry Ford were still around for his 150th birthday (July 30), hed probably be exhausted of people talking about the Model T or his development of the assembly line. So, in honor of the inventor hitting the century-and-a-half mark, here are some lesser-known facts about one of the most recognizable names in the automobile industry. 1. When he a young man, Ford repaired watches for his friends and family-and he made his own tools to do it. He used a filed shingle nail as a screwdriver and a corset stay as tweezers.. 2. Ford became Chief Engineer of the Edision Illuminating Companys main plant in 1893, and was on-call 24 hours a day to keep Detroits electricity running. He left the position 6 years later-with Edisons encouragement to work on his plans for a gasoline automobile.. 3. In 1918, President Woodrow Wilson convinced Ford to run for a seat on the Senate as a Democrat. Ford obliged, sending a letter to the President saying, "If they want to elect me let them do so, but I wont make a ...

And no heres something you wont read in major American newspapers or see on American television.. The USG Open Source Center translated remarks to Iranian television of General Hoseyn Salami, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force concerning Irans Monday missile tests (Islamic Republic of Iran News Network Television (IRINN), Monday, September 28, 2009):. Gen. Salami said, "as long as our enemies act within a political domain, our behavior will be completely political. However, if they want to leave the domain of political action and enter the domain of military threat, then our action will be exactly and completely military." . . .. Many Western media reports implied that the missile tests were launched along with threats to wipe out Israel. But note that the commanding officer overseeing them explicitly restated Irans "no first strike" pledge. To my knowledge, no current high official in the Iranian executive has threatened war against Israel, which in any case would be ...

Fourteen dogs located on the lee side of planted gravel, of a concrete- block wall, and of glass mounted in the open and in houses were exposed to the environmental variations associated with full-scale nuclear detonations. Aluminum foil was used to protect the animals from thermal effects. The missile environment was monitored through the use of quantitutive missile-trapping techniques. Pressure-time variations in the environment were also recorded. Biologic damage from overpressure and missiles was determined, and the associations between physical envtronmental factors and biologic response were noted and analyzed. The feasibility of utilizing ninssile data, along with other available information from the literature, as a means of quantitutively assesing biologic hazard was estublished by the close correspondence between observed and predicted dangerous wounds. This test provided full-scale validation of procedures and experimsnts worked out chiefly in the laboratory. (auth)
TY - JOUR. T1 - Myeloid-derived suppressor cells. T2 - Cellular missiles to target tumors. AU - Chandra, Dinesh. AU - Gravekamp, Claudia. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - While conventional anticancer therapies, including surgical resection, radiotherapy, and/or chemotherapy, are relatively efficient at eliminating primary tumors, these treatment modalities are largely ineffective against metastases. At least in part, this reflects the rather inefficient delivery of conventional anticancer agents to metastatic lesions. We have recently demonstrated that myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) can be used as cellular missiles to selectively deliver a radioisotope-coupled attenuated variant of Listeria monocytogenes to both primary and metastatic neoplastic lesions in mice with pancreatic cancer. This novel immunotherapeutic intervention robustly inhibited tumor growth while promoting a dramatic decrease in the number of metastases.. AB - While conventional anticancer therapies, including surgical ...
The adaptability of the Adjustable Protraction Face Mask allows for controlled directional force application by adjusting the elastics engagement bar to deliver protractive force in the desired plane. Fully adjustable forehead and chin rests allow for adaptation to most patients anatomical structure. The angle of traction is then determined by adjusting the elastics engagement bar to deliver horizontal, upward or downward forces as desired.. All face mask adjustments can be accomplished using a flat head screwdriver (not included). The padded forehead and chin rests offer comfort for extended wear and may be cleaned. Traction force application recommends 1/2" elastics with 16 oz. pull ratings, alternatively 1/2" 8 oz. elastics may be used if lighter forces are desired. ...
PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) North Korea launched a ballistic missile Friday night which flew longer than any of its previous missiles and landed in the ocean off Japan, according to officials from Japan, South Korea and the United States.Japanese governme
North Koreas Longest Missile Test Yet After more than two months without a missile launch, North Korea did a middle-of-the-night test (3:17 am local time) today that appears to be its longest yet. Reports are saying that the missile test was highly lofted and landed in the Sea of Japan some 960 km (600 miles) from the launch site. They are also saying the missile reached a maximum altitude of 4,500 km. This would mean that it flew for about 54 minutes, which is consistent with reports from Japan. If these numbers are correct, then if flown on a standard trajectory rather than this lofted trajectory, this missile would have a range of more than 13,000 km (8,100 miles). This is significantly longer than North Koreas previous long range tests, which flew on lofted trajectories for 37 minutes (July 4) and 47 minutes (July 28). Such a missile would have more than enough range to reach Washington, DC, and in fact any part of the continental United States. We do not know how heavy a payload this ...

0005] Generally, a polymeric material is injection molded onto a semi-finished article made from a material other than the polymeric material (e.g., carbon fiber prepreg) so as to form a molded product, such as a screwdriver, safety scissors, and a portable electrical device. However, the connection between the polymeric material and the semi-finished article is weak, thereby resulting in separation of the polymeric material from the semi-finished article. To improve the connection therebetween, a surface of the semi-finished article to be in contact with the polymeric material is treated by abrading, sandblasting, etching and other methods to improve the roughness of the semi-finished article, thereby increasing the contact area between the semi-finished article and the polymeric material. Since the connection between the semi-finished article and the polymeric material ...

F. E. Warren Air Force Base operates 50 Peacekeeper Missiles and 150 Minuteman III Missiles as part of the United States strategic defense. Nearly 4,000 military personnel and 600 civilians operate and maintain the base which covers 5,866 acres at the main base near Cheyenne, Wyoming, and 220 remote missile facilities spread over 12,600 square miles in Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado. Francis E. Warren AFB near Cheyenne Wyoming is one of four strategic missile bases in the United States. The base has the distinction of evolving from a noteworthy frontier infantry and cavalry post into the largest, most modern strategic missile facility in the United States. The history of the base dates back to the Railroad Act of 1862, when President Lincoln and Congress set plans for the transcontinental railroad, including a military installation on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains in the Wyoming Territory, to protect Union Pacific workers from hostile Indians. On July 4, 1876, the railroad ...

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.". ...

If we notice any sign of assault on our sovereignty, our army will launch merciless military strikes against the USA aggressors, wherever they may exist, from the remote USA lands to the American military bases on the Korean Peninsula, such as those of Japan and elsewhere".. Graham said he recommended Trump tell China that if Beijing doesnt stop Pyongyang from building a missile capable of striking America, the U.S.. North Korea said in February that it had successfully tested a new type of medium- to long-range ballistic missile, the Pukkuksong-2, propelled by a solid-fuel engine.. But reports since have indicated that Washingtons new policy towards the DPRK will focus on maximum pressure and engagement.. In the upcoming test, a missile will be launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and attempt to intercept a simulated missile over the Pacific Ocean.. He said Trump is certain that negotiating trade deals with individual countries was the best way to ensure they yield ...
On 17 March 1987, Iraqi F1 fighter-bombers armed with French-built AM39 "Exocet" missiles attacked USS STARK (FFG-31). Two AM39 missiles hit forward of the bridge portside; one did not explode and spewed burning propellant inside the ship while the other penetrated the crew quarters. Thirty-seven American sailors were killed and 21 were wounded. The Mk 15 Phalanx was in STANDBY mode and did not engage. Mk 36 Super Rapid Bloom Off-board Chaff (SRBOC) countermeasures were not armed. The SM-1 Standard missile could not engage because the Iraqi F1 was in the blind spot of the ships STIR (Separate Target Illumination Radar). Phalanx failed because it was not turned ON.. During the first Gulf War, USS JARRETT (FFG-33) was operating several miles from USS MISSOURI (BB-63) and the British destroyer HMS GLOUCESTER (D96) on 25 February 1991. On that day, the ships were attacked by an Iraqi Silkworm missile (a Chinese copy of the Soviet SS-N-2 Styx). MISSOURI fired its Mk 36 SRBOC decoys. JARRETTs ...
The shape and size of this cavity also depend on variables other than kinetic energy, such as yaw-the wobbling motion of a bullet-and the effect of secondary missiles that form when the bullets kinetic energy is transferred to bone, which fragments and itself becomes projectiles. When the bullet enters tissue, it chisels out a cavity much larger than its own diameter. A ball cannot produce yaw because it has no longitudinal axis to wobble on, and no secondary missiles were formed in Lincolns injury because, other than entering the occipital bone, the ball encountered only soft brain matter. The occipital bone that was hit was driven like a plug and found in the autopsy about two and a half inches down the missile track. The hole made in the bone, wrote a witness to the autopsy, "was as cleanly cut as if done with a punch." The absence of yaw and secondary missiles combined with the balls low velocity should have rendered the effect of cavitation in Lincolns wound minimal, and indeed, the ...

EMP is a high-tech means of killing millions of people the old fashioned way-through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.. An EMP can be generated by a terrorist or rogue state nuclear missile, perhaps launched off a freighter near our shores to preserve anonymity, and burst at high-altitude over the United States. In this manner, a single crude nuclear weapon, lofted by a primitive short-range missile, could generate an EMP that would destroy electronics and electric power everywhere, stopping the operation of the critical infrastructures-power, transportation, communications, banking and finance, food and water-that are vital to the existence of modern society and the survival of the American people.. Iran, the worlds chief sponsor of international terrorism, openly writes about eliminating the United States with an EMP attack, has conducted live missile launches simulating EMP attacks, and has practiced missile launching from a vessel in the Caspian Sea.

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a leading cause of disability among adults. Within the affected population, there exists a group of patients who have exhausted conservative treatment options and yet are not ideal candidates for current surgical treatments due to young age, early disease severity, or neutral mechanical knee alignment. For these patients, a new potential treatment option may be considered. We present an interesting case report of a young, ex-professional athlete treated with a minimally invasive load-altering implant (Atlas System) whose young age (26 years), disease status (tibiofemoral kissing lesions), and neutral mechanical limb alignment eliminated all traditional surgical treatment options such as high tibial osteotomy or arthroplasty ...
The recent Southern California flash floods have produced many water inhalation end drowning victims among the tortoise population. Many of these have been brought in for treatment. Occasionally I get frantic calls from tortoise keepers who find, to their horror, that a tortoise has fallen into a swimming pool. This perplexing problem has produced many interesting cases and has prompted this article.. Drowning has been defined as "asphyxiation due. to submersion in water or other liquid". Prolonged submersion leads to: (1) Anoxia (lack of oxygen) from severe reflex laryngospasm or flooding of the lungs or (2) Ventricular fibrillation (the so called "can of worms" effect on the heart when the individual muscles beat out of order and wildly resulting in lack of blood flow). Immediately after submersion, there frequently is a severe protective laryngospasm which acts to exclude water (or other liquid) from the deeper portions of the airway, but when this relaxes, the liquid is aspirated into the ...
Rhubarb is an interesting case. In the First World War because of the lack of access to fresh vegetables, the British government recommended that families supplement their diets with rhubarb leaves which were not traditionally eaten. It turns out that this was very bad advice. Rhubarb leaves contain considerably more oxalate than the stalks and there was a flurry of case reports towards the end of the war detailing cases of oxalate poisoning from rhubarb leaf consumption (see also and this). The toxicity of the leaves was probably increased by advice to cool the leaves with soda which increases the solubility of oxalate. Although the MD50 of oxalate would require the ingestion of about 5kg of rhubarb leaves, one could imagine that much lower doses would be toxic in patients with chronic kidney disease ...

The most interesting case is physics, Weinberg said. In physics, there was an especially notable increase in the early 20th century in the frequency of young scientists producing prize-winning work. The proportion of physicists who did their prize-winning work by age 30 peaked in 1923 at 31 percent. Those that did their best work by age 40 peaked in 1934 at 78 percent. The proportion of physicists under age 30 or 40 producing Nobel Prize-winning work then declined throughout the rest of the century.. The shift in physics stands out from chemistry, where young achievement declined more consistently through the 20th century, and medicine, which shows a decline in achievement before age 30, but otherwise no substantial trends.. The trend toward youthful achievement in early 20th century physics occurred during the same time as the development of quantum mechanics, Weinberg noted. That may help explain why young scientists were more successful then.. "Young physicists at the time were part of a ...
