OBJECTIVEThe aim of this study was to compare the radiological and clinical results of bilateral interlaminar canal decompression and classic laminectomy in lumbar canal stenosis (LCS).METHODSTwo hundred eighteen patients with LCS were randomized to surgical treatment with classic laminectomy (group 1) or bilateral interlaminar canal decompression (group 2). Low-back and leg pain were evaluated according to the visual analog scale (VAS) both preoperatively and postoperatively. Disability was evaluated according to the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) preoperatively and at 1 month, 1 year, and 3 years postoperatively. Neurogenic claudication was evaluated using the Zurich Claudication Questionnaire (ZCQ) preoperatively and 1 year postoperatively. The two treatment groups were compared in terms of neurogenic claudication, estimated blood loss (EBL), and intra- and postoperative complications.RESULTSPostoperative low-back and leg pain declined as compared to the preoperative pain. Both groups had significant improvement in VAS, ODI, and ZCQ scores, and the improvements in ODI and back pain VAS scores were significantly better in group 2. The average EBL was 140 ml in group 2 compared to 260 ml in group 1. Nine patients in the laminectomy group developed postoperative instability requiring fusion compared to only 4 cases in the interlaminar group (p = 0.15). Complications frequency did not show any statistical significance between the two groups.CONCLUSIONSBilateral interlaminar decompression is an effective method that provides sufficient canal decompression with decreased instability in cases of LCS and increases patient comfort in the postoperative period.

Among the most challenging problems in the field of damage detection and condition assessment in large structures is the ability to reliably detect, locate, and quantify relatively small changes in their dynamic response, based on vibration signal analysis. In this study, a substructuring approach, which uses a nonparametric identification method, was applied to simulated damage data from a high-fidelity and validated three-dimensional (3D) finite element model of a 52-story high-rise office building, located in downtown Los Angeles. Results of this study indicate that the approach not only yields identification results that match well-known global (linear) system identification methods, such as NExT/ERA, but it also provides additional benefits that global identification approaches suffer from. These benefits include: (1) enhanced sensitivity to small structural parameter changes, (2) ability to provide location information about the region in the large structure in which damage has occurred, and (3) not assuming that the underlying structure is linear. Thus, the approach is capable of detecting, quantifying, and classifying changes, when they do occur, if the actual building is subjected to strong earthquake ground motion.

Congo Red (CR) is one of the azo dyes which is widely used in textile industries and has carcinogenic properties. Large amount of wastewater containing these dyes is discharged from the printing units causing an environmental pollution. So, it is very important to degrade these dyes before discharging it. Several bacterial strains isolated from textile wastewater were tested to study its potential to decolorize CR dye. The decolorization of Congo Red dye by the bacterial strains was observed in various concentrations (25 to 400 mg/L) of CR dye. The most potent bacterial strains were B. cereus MAM-B22, Ochrobactrum sp. MAM-C9, Achromobacter xylosoxidans MAM-29 and B. cereus MAM-B11. The maximum decolorization was observed by B. cereus MAM-B22 which removed 96.92%, 93.34%, 89.28%, 82.51%, 75.57%, 69.18% and 66.73% of 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 300 and 400 mg/L respectively after 3 days of incubation at 37°C. When different pH values were used, the maximum decolorization was observed at pH 7.0 which was 90.21%, 90.03%, 89.62% and 85.84% by Ochrobacterum sp. MAM-C9, B. cereus MAM-B22, A. xylosoxidans MAM-29 and B. cereus MAM-B11 respectively. The effect of temperature was studied at a range of 25-60°C and the optimum temperature was 37°C. The percentage of decolorization of CR was 92.56%, 91.37%, 89.29% and 88.69% by B. cereus MAM-B22, Ochrobacterum sp. MAM-C9, A. xylosoxidans MAM-29 and B. cereus MAM-B11 respectively. The decolorization percentage was bacterial strain, concentration and time dependent.

INTRODUCTION: Across all specialties, economic pressure is driving increased utilization of outpatient surgery when feasible.

AIMS: Our aims were to analyze national trends of penile prosthesis (PP) surgery and to examine patient and hospital characteristics, and perioperative complications in the inpatient setting.

METHODS: We analyzed data from National Inpatient Sample. Patients in NIS who underwent PP insertion between 2000 and 2010 were included.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Our main outcomes were the number of inpatient PP procedures, type of prosthesis, patient demographics, comorbidities, hospital characteristics, and immediate perioperative complications.

RESULTS: There was a progressive and dramatic decline by nearly half in the number of both inflatable (IPP) and noninflatable (NIPP) inpatient insertions performed from 2000 to 2010 (P = 0.0001). The overall rate of inpatient complications for PP insertion was 13.5%. Patients with three or more comorbidities were found to have a higher risk of complications than patients with no comorbidities (OR = 1.45, 95% CI = 1.18-1.78) (P = 0.0001). Surgeries performed in high-volume hospitals (10 or more PP cases per year) were associated with reduced risk of complications (OR = 0.6) (P < 0.0001). There was a dramatic decrease in inpatient setting for PP placement in high-volume hospitals (32% in 2000 compared with 6% in 2010; P < 0.0001), and when compared with lower volume hospitals. NIPP was more likely performed in younger patients and in community hospitals, and less likely in white patients. Medicaid health insurance was associated with much higher rate of NIPP insertion than other types of insurance.

CONCLUSIONS: The number of PP procedures performed in the inpatient setting declined between 2000 and 2010, likely reflecting a shift toward increasing outpatient procedures. Our data also suggest a better outcome for patients having the procedure done at a high-volume center in terms of inpatient complications.
