#1
Yusuf Sahillioglu, Metin Sezgin
Sketch-based queries are a suitable and superior alternative to traditional text- and example-based queries for 3D shape retrieval. The authors developed an articulated 3D shape retrieval method that uses easy-to-obtain 2D sketches. In contrast to existing sketch-based retrieval systems that lower the 3D database models to 2D, their algorithm implicitly lifts the 2D query to 2.5D by inferring depth information from possibly self-intersecting sketches using a good continuation rule. It does not require 3D example models to initiate queries, but results show that it achieves accuracy comparable to a state-of-the-art example-based 3D shape retrieval method...

Dennis Flanagan
Implant-supported dental prostheses can be retained by a screw or cement. Implant-supported fixed partial dentures have a passive fit. A passive fit means there is an internal gap between the abutment surface and the intaglio of the retainer to insure that there is no lateral pressure on the supporting implants or friction upon seating of the prosthesis. This gap is filled with cement for retention of the prosthesis. Any lateral pressure may cause marginal bone loss or periimplantitis. Also, there is usually a microscopic gap at the margin of a crown retainer that exposes the cement to oral fluids...

BACKGROUND: Manual positive pressure ventilation is an essential skill in a variety of clinical situations. The C&E technique is commonly used with standard facemasks to provide effective ventilation. The Tao mask is a novel design that allows a more ergonomic grip. A seal between the mask and face is made with downward pressure of the palm, centered on the mask, and jaw lift is achieved with 4 fingers centered under the mandible. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Tao mask compared to a standard mask before and after the administration of neuromuscular blockade (NMB) using 2 previously established ventilation scales...

Suraj Chavda, Liran Levin
Alveolar ridge augmentation can be completed with various types of bone augmentation materials (autogenous, allograft, xenograft & alloplast). Currently autogenous bone is labelled as the "gold standard" due to faster healing times and integration between native and foreign bone. No systematic review has currently determined whether there is a difference of implant success between various bone augmentation materials. The purpose of this paper was to systematically review comparative human studies of vertical and horizontal alveolar ridge augmentation comparing different types of bone graft materials (autogenous, allograft, xenograft & alloplast)...

We study the conventional electron--phonon mediated superconducting properties of hole-doped Black Phosphorus by density functional calculations and get a quite large electron--phonon coupling (EPC) constant λ ~ 1.0 with transition temperature TC ~ 10 K, which is comparable to MgB2 when holes are doped into degenerate and nearly flat energy bands around the Fermi level. We predict that the softening of low-frequency B3g1 optical mode and its phonon displacement which breaks the lattice nonsymmorphic symmetry of gliding plane and lifts the band double degeneracy, lead to a large EPC...

In this work, a Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC) platform is used to electromagnetically actuate magnetic bead chains for an enhanced immunoassay. Custom-made electromagnets generate a magnetic field to form, rotate, lift and lower the magnetic bead chains (MBCs). The cost-effective, disposable LOC platform was made with a polymer substrate and an on-chip electrochemical sensor patterned via the screen-printing process. The movement of the MBCs is controlled to improve the electrochemical signal up to 230% when detecting beta-type human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG)...

This study aimed to evaluate the within- and between-session reliability of force, velocity and power performances and to assess the force-velocity relationship during the deadlift high pull (DHP). Nine participants performed two identical sessions of DHP with loads ranging from 30 to 70% of body mass. The force was measured by a force plate under the participants' feet. The velocity of the 'body + lifted mass' system was calculated by integrating the acceleration and the power was calculated as the product of force and velocity...

Jian Zhou, Puru Jena
Two-dimensional group VI transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) provide a promising platform to encode and manipulate quantum information in the valleytronics. However, the two valleys are energetically degenerate, protected by time-reversal symmetry (TRS). To lift this degeneracy, one needs to break the TRS by either applying an external magnetic field or using a magnetic rare-earth oxide substrate. Here, we predict a different strategy to achieve this goal. We propose that the ferromagnetic group V TMD monolayer, in which the TRS is intrinsically broken, can produce a larger valley and spin splitting...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Elevated heel construction offloads the forefoot after surgery. However, side-to-side height difference alters limb kinetics, whereas leg-length equalizing-sole at non-operated side may have beneficial effects on foot loading. The purpose of this study was to characterize leg-length equalizing sole effect on bilateral plantar pressures when using heel-lift forefoot-offloading shoe. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty men were tested walking. Plantar peak pressures (PP) and pressure-time integrals (PTI) in the forefoot-offloading shoe and in contralateral running shoe were compared between two conditions: one with- and the other without leg-length equalizing sole elevation at the running shoe...

An innovative analytical strategy has been applied to identify signature peptides able to distinguish among processed animal proteins (PAPs) derived from bovine, pig, fish and milk products. Proteomics was first used to elucidate the proteome of each source. Starting from the identified proteins and using a funnel based approach, a set of abundant and well characterized peptides with suitable physical-chemical properties (signature peptides) and specific for each source were selected. An on-target LC-ESI-MS/MS method (MRM mode) was set-up using standard peptides and was then applied to selectively identify the PAP source and also to distinguish proteins from bovine carcass and milk proteins...

BACKGROUND: Many mastopexy techniques have been described in the literature focusing on the new nipple areolar complex position and the breast deflation treatment, but only few of them detailed the glandular volume redistribution to avoid the use of implants. We describe a mastopexy procedure that brings the maximum of the volume to the central part of the breast. We compare the procedure to a "chignon" hair style way to vulgarize the technique and simplify its comprehension. METHODS: Breast volume is reshaped by the use of a vertical mastopexy and two deepithelized glandular flaps sutured for the first one to the pectoralis major fascia and for the second one to the contralateral flap...
