J Arthroplasty 2004 Jan;19(1):129-31

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Innsbruck, Anichstrasse 35, A-6020, Austria.

We report 2 cases of bone defects of the acetabulum. The first case was a patient who underwent a total hip arthroplasty. An intraoperative bleeding occurred because of an injury of an intrapelvic artery. Preoperative radiographs did not show this bone defect. A similar abnormality of the acetabulum was found in a series of 30 pelves that were dissected for a cadaver study. In this case, the bone defect was located in the center of the right acetabulum.

Implementation process and quality of a primary health care system improvement initiative in a decentralized context: A retrospective appraisal using the quality implementation framework.

Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Background: Effective implementation processes are essential in achieving desired outcomes of health initiatives. Whereas many approaches to implementation may seem straightforward, careful advanced planning, multiple stakeholder involvements, and addressing other contextual constraints needed for quality implementation are complex. Consequently, there have been recent calls for more theory-informed implementation science in health systems strengthening. Read More

The pesticides are used in several fields of agriculture and farms to protect crops against harmful insects and herbs. The increased and uncontrolled use of these pollutants is very hazardous for the population health. Consumption of contaminated food matrices with these pesticides could impair the cell integrity and its molecular function. Read More

Feeling the future: A meta-analysis of 90 experiments on the anomalous anticipation of random future events.

F1000Res 2015 30;4:1188. Epub 2015 Oct 30.

Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, England, NG1 4BU, UK.

In 2011, one of the authors (DJB) published a report of nine experiments in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology purporting to demonstrate that an individual's cognitive and affective responses can be influenced by randomly selected stimulus events that do not occur until after his or her responses have already been made and recorded, a generalized variant of the phenomenon traditionally denoted by the term precognition. To encourage replications, all materials needed to conduct them were made available on request. We here report a meta-analysis of 90 experiments from 33 laboratories in 14 countries which yielded an overall effect greater than 6 sigma, z = 6. Read More

Effects of open grazing and livestock exclusion on floristic composition and diversity in natural ecosystem of Western Saudi Arabia.

Saudi J Biol Sci 2015 Jul 9;22(4):430-7. Epub 2015 May 9.

Department of Plant Production, King Saud University, PO Box 2460, Riyadh 11451, Saudi Arabia.

Livestock grazing is one of the main causes of rangeland degradation in Saudi Arabia. Fencing to exclude grazers is one of the main management practices used to restore vegetation and conserve biodiversity. The main objectives of this study were to investigate the changes in plant diversity and abundance, floristic composition and plant groups of the major life forms in response to thirty-five years of grazing exclosure in western Saudi Arabia.

a Prosthodontics and Restorative Dentistry Division, Faculty of Dentistry, McGill University , Rm M65, 3640 University St., Montreal, QB H3A 0C7, Canada.

Background: All disciplines of dentistry require that clinicians assess the articulation of the teeth/prosthesis with respect to simultaneous contacts, bite force and timing.

Aims: This article intends to describe the advantages and limitations of the data acquired when using a computerized occlusal analysis as a dynamic occlusal indicator.

Methodology: A search of the literature was completed (Medline, PubMed) using the keywords occlusion, occlusal registration, computerized occlusal analysis and T-Scan for dental. Read More
