Model test vs virtual simulation of a VLCC FPSO hookup  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper describes the model test and the virtual simulation respectively for the VLCC class FPSO hookup, as well as addresses their different applications to the mating operation between the FPSO and the soft yoke mooring system (SYMS) in extremely shallow water. The scope of the model test and the virtual simulation covers various installation stages including a series of positioning trials, positioning keeping and temporary mooring to the pre-installed SYMS mooring tower, pendulum mating, and yoke ballasting to storm-safe. The model test is to accurately verify bollard pull capacity to keep the FPSO in position and assess motion responses and mooring loads for the FPSO and installation vessels during various installation stages. The virtual simulation is to provide a virtual-reality environment, thus realistically replicating the hookup operation at the Simulation Test Center (STC) facility and identifying any deficiencies in key installation personnel, execution plan, or operation procedures. The methodologies of the model test and the virtual simulation addressed here can be easily extended to the deepwater applications such as positioning and installation operations of various floating systems.

Optimal structural design of the midship of a VLCC based on the strategy integrating SVM and GA  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper a hybrid process of modeling and optimization, which integrates a support vector machine (SVM) and genetic algorithm (GA), was introduced to reduce the high time cost in structural optimization of ships. SVM, which is rooted in statistical learning theory and an approximate implementation of the method of structural risk minimization, can provide a good generalization performance in metamodeling the input-output relationship of real problems and consequently cuts down on high time cost in the analysis of real problems, such as FEM analysis. The GA, as a powerful optimization technique, possesses remarkable advantages for the problems that can hardly be optimized with common gradient-based optimization methods, which makes it suitable for optimizing models built by SVM. Based on the SVM-GA strategy, optimization of structural scantlings in the midship of a very large crude carrier (VLCC) ship was carried out according to the direct strength assessment method in common structural rules (CSR), which eventually demonstrates the high efficiency of SVM-GA in optimizing the ship structural scantlings under heavy computational complexity. The time cost of this optimization with SVM-GA has been sharply reduced, many more loops have been processed within a small amount of time and the design has been improved remarkably.

Earth Port-Moon Port design  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A pair of compatible transfer stations or Space Ports and associated transfer vehicles was designed in order to support permanent manned lunar facilities. One of the Space Ports was placed in earth orbit (not necessarily Low Earth Orbit - LEO), and the other in lunar orbit. The primary purposes of the Space Ports was to support the lunar surface facility, the return of lunar manufactured items to the earth, and the transfer of lunar manufactured items to space vehicles and earth orbital space stations. The design was constrained by the following: (1) The orbital altitudes and inclinations of the Earth Port and Moon Port were chosen to minimize the overall cost of transporting materials to and from the moon. The ETO (Earth-to-Orbit) costs were considered separately to allow consideration of initiating planetary missions, etc., from the Earth Port. (2) A new earth launch point was chosen to facilitate the support of the lunar facility. This launch point was chosen to minimize overall costs, maximize overall safety, and to avoid political problems. To this end, it was mandatory the launch site be owned by the United States or one of its close allies. In addition, the launch would take place over water and expendable stages would drop into the ocean. Space shuttle type vehicles could be used if appropriate provisions were made for aborts, SRB and ET impact, etc. The ground track and impact point studies included space shuttle type vehicles, current ELV's (expendable launch vehicles, and HLLV's (heavy lift launch vehicles). (3) The Earth Port and Moon Port orbits were selected so that transfer trajectories between the two facilities could be initiated often without major plane change penalties. The amount of these penalties was calculated. Families of Earth Port to Moon Port and Moon Port to Earth Port trajectories were calculated to document the energy requirements and penalties. (4) Space Port module designs included module systems definitions, module masses, system masses, module and system volumes, module and system power requirements, etc. (5) The Space Port designs included specifications and justification for: Permanent crew size; Warehousing capacity; Assembly, assembly support, and repair; Unsupported operational capability; Nominal resupply intervals; Contingency resupply options; Transient personnel support capability; Costing, based on the Space Station Cost Model.

Robotics for port security  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The capacity through the use of robots with on board visual, NBC and HAZMAT sensors to rapidly and continuously screen convoys and staged exposed assets would be a force multiplier and measurably improve base and force protection at both inbound and outbound DOD and commercial facilities. This paper chronicles our experiment with the ODIS robot at the Ports of Los Angeles (POLA) and Long Beach (POLB) in July of 2003. POLA & POLB are responsible for moving over 30% of the United States trade goods. Queues of 54" container trucks routinely exceed 100 trucks, extending for over a mile from the port entrances. Spotted equipment and convoys at staging areas are a high visibility and value assets to a terrorist incident. The POLA/POLB scenario is also representative of TRANSCOM operations at the port of Basra during current operation in Iraq. The California Highway Patrol is responsible for physically inspecting these vehicles for roadworthiness and contraband, a dangerous and dirty job. We will also discuss the use of ODIS robots for this task.

Laparoscopic port closure.  

PubMed

Formation of a post-operative trocar site hernia (TSH) is a serious complication of laparoscopic surgery with an incidence of 1.5%-1.8%, and may necessitate emergent surgical correction in the case of bowel strangulation. Many contributing factors increase the risk of this complication, and various surgical devices have been developed to help prevent post-operative TSH formation. Bladeless trocars with radially expanding technology have been shown to decrease the incidence of post-operative TSH. Various port site closure devices are also available on the market, which assist in closing the fascia, thus decreasing the risk of this complication. In this article, we will review the use of these devices and their potential to reduce post-operative TSH formation. PMID:24700212

Two-port total laparoscopic hysterectomy with a multichannel port.  

PubMed

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) is often performed in many countries. TLH has been shown to involve shorter hospital stays, as well as less bleeding and postoperative pain, than conventional abdominal hysterectomy. The skin incision for the laparoscopy is smaller than that of the laparotomy, but multiple incisions may decrease the cosmetic satisfaction of patients. The multiple puncture sites also increase the cost of trocars and trocar-associated complications, such as bleeding, hernias, and wound infection. Therefore, in this paper we introduce a two-port TLH technique with a multichannel port employing the transumbilical one-port technique performed by Ryu et al. To perform a two-port TLH, the ancillary 5-mm trocar was inserted at the left iliac fossa under laparoscopic view. The inserted umbilical trocar was removed and the skin incision was extended about 1.5 cm. An Alexis wound retractor XS (Applied Medical) was inserted through the extended umbilical wound. The wrist portion of a 6 (1/2) rubber glove covered the wound retractor, and two trocars were inserted into the fingers of the glove and ligated with rubber bands. A 5- or 10-mm laparoscope and atraumatic forceps were inserted through the umbilical port. TLH was performed in the usual manner. This two-port method would be cost-effective considering the conventional laparoscopic instruments. The development of multichannel trocars and minimized laparoscopic devices may confer less invasive operative techniques that also cause less scarring. PMID:19243267

Generalized scattering matrix of generalized two-port discontinuities - Application to four-port and nonsymmetric six-port couplers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A field theory analysis of multiport, multidiscontinuity structures based on the generalized scattering matrix (GSM) of a generalized two-port discontinuity concept is presented. The analysis can be used in any structure equipped with any number of input and output ports, and results in substantial simplifications over previous analyses. The GSMs of generalized two-port discontinuities can also be cascaded with the same procedure as the two-port discontinuities and can be used to determine the electromagnetic field and the Poynting vector at every point of the structure. The GSM of the generalized two-port technique is used to analyze four-port and nonsymmetric six-port branch-waveguide directional couplers, and good agreement between the theoretical results and experimental data is obtained.

Port Operational Marine Observing System  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Port Operational Marine Observing System (POMOS) is a network of distributed sensors and centralized data collecting, processing and distributing unit. The system is designed to allow for the real-time assessment of weather and marine conditions throughout the major Bulgarian ports: Varna, Burgas and Balchik, supporting thereby Maritime administration to secure safety navigation in bays, canals and ports. Real-time information within harbors is obtained using various sensors placed at thirteen strategic locations to monitor the current state of the environment. The most important for navigation weather and sea-state parameters are measured: wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, visibility, solar radiation, water temperature and salinity, sea level, currents speed and direction, mean wave's parameters. The system consist of: 11 weather stations (3 with extra solar radiation and 4 with extra visibility measurement), 9 water temperature and salinity sensors, 9 sea-level stations, two sea currents and waves stations and two canal currents stations. All sensors are connected to communication system which provides direct intranet access to the instruments. Every 15 minutes measured data is transmitted in real-time to the central collecting system, where data is collected, processed and stored in database. Database is triple secured to prevent data losses. Data collection system is double secured. Measuring system is secured against short power failure and instability. Special software is designed to collect, store, process and present environmental data and information on different user-friendly screens. Access to data and information is through internet/intranet with the help of browsers. Actual data from all measurements or from separate measuring place can be displayed on the computer screens as well as data for the last 24 hours. Historical data are available using report server for extracting data for selectable place and period from database. The POMOS is developed in the frame of academic-government partnerships and represents an important resource to the Bulgarian ports. In addition to providing operations and safety-critical information to the Maritime administration, PORTS will serve as a scientific tool and a platform for further developments.

Morgagni hernia treated by reduced port surgery  

PubMed Central

INTRODUCTION The laparoscopic repair of a rare diaphragmatic Morgagni hernia using the reduced port approach is described. PRESENTATION OF CASE An 85-year-old female presented with a 2 days history of upper abdominal discomfort and loss of appetite. We diagnosed her condition as a Morgagni hernia by morphological studies and performed laparoscopic mesh placement with a multi-channel port and 12-mm port. This elderly patient had a rapid postoperative recovery. A 2-year follow-up CT showed no recurrence of the hernia. DISCUSSION Recent trends in laparoscopic procedures have been toward minimizing the number of incisions to reduce invasiveness. This case indicated that the reduced port approach can be considered a suitable and safe procedure for treatment of Morgagni hernia. CONCLUSION The reduced port approach is a good indication for Morgagni hernia. PMID:25437681

Two-port access versus four-port access laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy  

PubMed Central

Objective This study was conducted to compare the surgical outcomes between two-port access and four-port access laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy. Methods Four hundred and eighty nine patients who had received two-port access laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy (n=175) and four-port access laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy (n=314) in Chungnam National University Hospital from January 2009 to August 2012 were analyzed retrospectively. The data were compared between the bilaterality of the cysts and cyst diameter of less than 6 cm and 6 cm or more. Results There were no significant differences in patient's age, parity, body weight, body mass index and history of previous surgery between the two-port and four-port access laparoscopy group. Bilaterality of ovarian cysts was more in fourport access laparoscopy group (13.7% vs. 32.5%, P=0.000). There were no significant differences in operation time, hemoglobin change, hospital stay, adhesiolysis, transfusion, and insertion of hemo-vac between the two-port and four-port access laparoscopy group for size matched compare. However additional analgesics were more in four-port access laparoscopy group for unilateral ovarian cystectomy. Conclusion Two-port access laparoscopic surgery was feasible and safe for unilateral and bilateral ovarian cystectomy compare with four-port access laparoscopic surgery. PMID:25264528

Multi-port valve assembly  

DOEpatents

A multi-port fluid valve apparatus is used to control the flow of fluids through a plurality of valves and includes a web, which preferably is a stainless steel endless belt. The belt has an aperture therethrough and is progressed, under motor drive and control, so that its aperture is moved from one valve mechanism to another. Each of the valve mechanisms comprises a pair of valve blocks which are held in fluid-tight relationship against the belt. Each valve block consists of a block having a bore through which the fluid flows, a first seal surrounding the bore and a second seal surrounding the first seal, with the distance between the first and second seals being greater than the size of the belt aperture. In order to open a valve, the motor progresses the belt aperture to where it is aligned with the two bores of a pair of valve blocks, such alignment permitting a flow of the fluid through the valve. The valve is closed by movement of the belt aperture and its replacement, within the pair of valve blocks, by a solid portion of the belt.

Ovarian remnant syndrome at the port site.  

PubMed

Ovarian remnant syndrome is a rare gynecologic complication, mostly induced by difficult salpingo-oophorectomy with the residual ovarian tissue on the pelvic side wall. This is a report of a rare case of ovarian remnant syndrome at a port site after laparoscopic oophorectomy and a review of the related literature. A 22-year-old virgin had a laparoscopic oophorectomy for an endometrioma 5 years earlier. Postoperatively, she visited gynecologic clinics for a frequent painful sensation at the left port site. After sonographic examination and under the impression of a recurrent endometrioma, laparotomy and cyst excision were performed. Surprisingly, ectopic ovary was diagnosed by the pathologist. Review of the literature revealed ovarian remnant implantation at a port site as a very rare type of ovarian remnant syndrome. During laparoscopic oophorectomy in a woman without sexual exposure who is not a good candidate for culdotomy, the removal of the excised ovary through the port site is sometimes difficult and residual ovarian tissue implantation may occur. There are many methods to reduce the risk of port-site seeding, which we must keep in mind and execute to prevent such a complication. PMID:18602053

Robotic Single-Port Hernia Surgery  

PubMed Central

Background and Objectives: Since the introduction of single-incision laparoscopic surgery in 2009, an increasing number of surgical procedures including hernia repair are being performed using this technique. However, its large-scale adoption awaits results of prospective randomized controlled studies confirming its potential benefits. Parallel with single-port surgery development, the issue of the chronic lack of good camera assistants is being addressed by the robotic Freehand® camera controller, which has the potential to replace camera assistants in a large percentage of routine laparoscopic surgery. Although the robotic Freehand has been used in certain operations in urology and gynecology, there have been no published reports in robotic (single-port) hernia surgery. Methods: This study reports the first case and a series of 16 patients who underwent robotic single-port total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair compared to 16 consecutive cases of conventional single-port inguinal hernia repair. Patients were matched for age, sex, body mass index, American Society of Anesthesiologists classification, and types of hernia. Results: Although operation time was comparable in both, the time wasted for scope cleaning was 8.5 minutes for conventional compared to 1.5 minutes for robotic surgery. Conclusion: Robotic single-port inguinal hernia repair is feasible and efficient. This represents a further milestone in laparoscopic surgery. PMID:21985715

Porting salinas to the windows platform.  

SciTech Connect

The ASC program has enabled significant development of high end engineering applications on massively parallel machines. There is a great benefit in providing these applications on the desktop of the analysts and designers, at least insofar as the small models may be run on these platforms, thus providing a tool set that spans the application needs. This effort documents the work of porting Salinas to the WINDOWS{trademark} platform. Selection of the tools required to compile, link, test and run Salinas in this environment is discussed. Significant problems encountered along the way are listed along with an estimation of the overall cost of the port. This report may serve as a baseline for streamlining further porting activities with other ASC codes.

Laser treatment of port-wine stains  

PubMed Central

Port-wine stains are a type of capillary malformation affecting 0.3% to 0.5% of the population. Port-wine stains present at birth as pink to erythematous patches on the skin and/or mucosa. Without treatment, the patches typically darken with age and may eventually develop nodular thickening or associated pyogenic granuloma. Laser and light treatments provide improvement through selective destruction of vasculature. A variety of vascular-selective lasers may be employed, with the pulsed dye laser being the most common and well studied. Early treatment produces more optimal results. Advances in imaging and laser treatment technologies demonstrate potential to further improve clinical outcomes. PMID:25624768

PORTSIM: An object-oriented port simulation  

SciTech Connect

The development of an object-oriented port simulation (PORTSIM) that addresses military mobility issues will be described, with a brief description of the tool selection process. This system provides users with (1) a graphical user interface, (2) the ability to simulate military units through a specified port, with each individual cargo item (i.e. piece of equipment) represented, (3) utilization statistics for all port resources e.g. gates, staging areas, berths, inspectors, and material handling equipments, (4) utilization statistics for ships that arrive at the port, and (5) a graphical dynamic animation that allows for identification of bottlenecks and facilitates the playing of what-if scenarios to maximize throughput. Cargo is simulated from the time it arrives at a gate or end ramp to the time it is loaded onto a ship. Animation is directly integrated with the simulation to allow for modifications to the scenario while the simulation is running and to have the new parameters used from that point forward in time. The simulation is flexible and allows for multiple cargo types (breakbulk, container, and roll-on/roll-off) and multiple ship types.

Three ports laparoscopic resection for colorectal cancer: a step on refining of reduced port surgery.  

PubMed

Background. Reduced port surgery (RPS) is becoming increasingly popular for some surgeries. However, the application of RPS to the field of colectomy is still underdeveloped. Patients and Methods. In this series, we evaluated the outcome of laparoscopic colorectal resection using 3 ports technique (10?mm umbilical port plus another two ports of either 5 or 10?mm) for twenty-four cases of colorectal cancer as a step for refining of RPS. Results. The mean estimated blood loss was 70?mL (40-90?mL). No major intraoperative complications have been encountered. The mean time for passing flatus after surgery was 36 hours (12-48?hrs). The mean time for oral fluid intake was 36 hours and for semisolid food was 48 hours. The mean hospital stay was 5 days (4-7 days). The perioperative period passed without events. All cases had free surgical margins. The mean number of retrieved lymph nodes was 14 lymph nodes (5-23). Conclusion. Three ports laparoscopy assisted colorectal surgeries looks to be safe, effective and has cosmetic advantages. The procedure could maintain the oncologic principles of cancer surgery. It's a step on the way of refining of reduced port surgery. PMID:25006515

Low Back Pain in Port Machinery Operators  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The occurrence of several types of low back pain (LBP) was investigated by a standardized questionnaire in a group of 219 port machinery operators exposed to whole-body vibration (WBV) and postural load and in a control group of 85 maintenance workers employed at the same transport company. The group of port machinery operators included 85 straddle carrier drivers, 88 fork-lift truck drivers, and 46 crane operators. The vector sum of the frequency-weighted r.m.s. acceleration of vibration measured on the seatpan of port vehicles and machines averaged 0·90 m/s2 for fork-lift trucks, 0·48 m/s2 for straddle carriers, 0·53 m/s2 for mobile cranes, and 0·22 m/s2 for overhead cranes. The 12-month prevalence of low back symptoms (LBP, sciatic pain, treated LBP, sick leave due to LBP) was significantly greater in the fork-lift truck drivers than in the controls and the other two groups of port machinery operators. After adjusting for potential confounders, the prevalence of low back symptoms was found to increase with the increase of WBV exposure expressed as duration of exposure (driving years), equivalent vibration magnitude (m/s2), or cumulative vibration exposure (yr m2/s4). An excess risk for lumbar disc herniation was observed in the port machinery operators with prolonged driving experience. In both the controls and the port machinery operators, low back complaints were strongly associated with perceived postural load assessed in terms of frequency and/or duration of awkward postures at work. Multivariate analysis showed that vibration exposure and postural load were independent predictors of LBP. Even though the cross-sectional design of the present study does not permit firm conclusions on the relationship between WBV exposure and low back disorders, the findings of this investigation provide additional epidemiological evidence that seated WBV exposure combined with non-neutral trunk postures, as while driving, is associated with an increased risk of long-term adverse health effects on the lower back.

Detecting and Characterizing Semantic Inconsistencies in Ported Code  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Adding similar features and bug fixes often requires porting program patches from reference implementations and adapting them to target implementations. Porting errors may result from faulty adaptations or inconsistent updates. This paper investigates (1) the types of porting errors found in practice, and (2) how to detect and characterize potential porting errors. Analyzing version histories, we define five categories of porting errors, including incorrect control- and data-flow, code redundancy, inconsistent identifier renamings, etc. Leveraging this categorization, we design a static control- and data-dependence analysis technique, SPA, to detect and characterize porting inconsistencies. Our evaluation on code from four open-source projects shows that SPA can detect porting inconsistencies with 65% to 73% precision and 90% recall, and identify inconsistency types with 58% to 63% precision and 92% to 100% recall. In a comparison with two existing error detection tools, SPA improves precision by 14 to 17 percentage points.

Reduced port laparoscopic gastrectomy: A review, techniques, and perspective.  

PubMed

Reduced port laparoscopic surgery has been used increasingly. It is a concept that has grown out of the various efforts aimed at minimally invasive surgery, with SILS being the ultimate reduced port technique. Reduced port laparoscopic surgery has been used to perform sleeve gastrectomy in bariatric surgery and excision of benign gastric submucosal tumor, applications that generally do not require lymph node dissection or complicated reconstruction. It can be done safely, result in a permanent cure, and offer good cosmetic outcomes. Reduced port laparoscopic surgery for gastric cancer has a short history, and its usefulness has not yet been fully established. This review describes the present situation and challenges faced as well as standardized procedures and the future prospects of reduced port laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer, which my team performs almost daily. These aspects of reduced port laparoscopic surgery are presented in light of the literature. PMID:25496345

Compressor ported shroud for foil bearing cooling  

DOEpatents

A compressor ported shroud takes compressed air from the shroud of the compressor before it is completely compressed and delivers it to foil bearings. The compressed air has a lower pressure and temperature than compressed outlet air. The lower temperature of the air means that less air needs to be bled off from the compressor to cool the foil bearings. This increases the overall system efficiency due to the reduced mass flow requirements of the lower temperature air. By taking the air at a lower pressure, less work is lost compressing the bearing cooling air.

One, two, or three ports in laparoscopic cholecystectomy?  

PubMed

Abstract Single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has been compared with 3- or 4-port LC. To our knowledge, there are no studies comparing the 3-, 2-, and 1-port techniques. Patients were randomized into 3 groups: LC 1-port using SILS, LC 2-port using a laparoscope with a working channel, and LC 3-port using the standard ports. Pain was evaluated at recovery, 4 hours, 24 hours, day 5, and day 8, using an analog visual scale. Homogenous groups in their demographic characteristics; all confirmed gallbladder lithiasis. At recovery, there was less pain in group 1 (P = 0.002); at 4 hours pain was similar in all groups (P = 0.899); at 24 hours there was less pain in groups 2 and 3 (P = 0.031); and at days 5 and 8 there was marginal (P = 0.053) and significant (P = 0.003) relevance. In terms of pain perception, LC performed through 1 port does not offer advantages when compared with 2 or 3 ports. More clinical trials are needed to confirm these data. PMID:25437581

Reinforcement Learning for Port-Hamiltonian Systems.  

PubMed

Passivity-based control (PBC) for port-Hamiltonian systems provides an intuitive way of achieving stabilization by rendering a system passive with respect to a desired storage function. However, in most instances the control law is obtained without any performance considerations and it has to be calculated by solving a complex partial differential equation (PDE). In order to address these issues we introduce a reinforcement learning (RL) approach into the energy-balancing passivity-based control (EB-PBC) method, which is a form of PBC in which the closed-loop energy is equal to the difference between the stored and supplied energies. We propose a technique to parameterize EB-PBC that preserves the systems's PDE matching conditions, does not require the specification of a global desired Hamiltonian, includes performance criteria, and is robust. The parameters of the control law are found by using actor-critic (AC) RL, enabling the search for near-optimal control policies satisfying a desired closed-loop energy landscape. The advantage is that the solutions learned can be interpreted in terms of energy shaping and damping injection, which makes it possible to numerically assess stability using passivity theory. From the RL perspective, our proposal allows for the class of port-Hamiltonian systems to be incorporated in the AC framework, speeding up the learning thanks to the resulting parameterization of the policy. The method has been successfully applied to the pendulum swing-up problem in simulations and real-life experiments. PMID:25167564

Own experience improving port implantation in laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding  

PubMed Central

Introduction Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a method frequently used for treating obesity. It requires periodic band regulation associated with the need for port puncture. However, there is always a substantial risk of port rotation. Aim This publication presents a solution of the problem for a MiniMizer Extra band. Material and methods One thousand one hundred and twenty-four individuals were operated on for obesity in the Department of Gastroenterological, Oncological and General Surgery of the Medical University of Lodz between 2005 and 2009. In 637 patients LAGB was performed. These LAGB patients were divided into three groups. In group I (20 patients) MiniMizer Extra bands were placed without port stabilization. In the second group (292 patients) MiniMizer Extra band placement with port stabilization was commenced. In the third group (325 patients) bands of other manufacturers (AMI, Inamed, Midband, Obtech) were used without port stabilization. The port was implanted into the subcutaneous tissue in the left subcostal region, medial to the left working tool trocar position. Results Port rotation was observed on the very first band adjustment in 3 (0.92%) and 11 (55%) patients with a band other than MiniMizer Extra (n = 325) and the first 20 patients with a MiniMizer Extra band. A different technique of port stabilization was applied in a further 292 patients on MiniMizer Extra band placement and no port rotation was noted. Conclusions We believe that MiniMizer additional port stabilization is necessary for its frequent rotation. Simultaneously, application of our method is easy, does not prolong the procedure significantly and secures comfortable access to the port. PMID:23256007

Climate variability and Port wine quality  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recent warming trends for Portugal have been found to be steepest in winter and spring and more pronounced for minimum than for maximum values of temperature (Miranda et al, 2002). These trends and associated changes in temperature and precipitation regimes may exert strong influences on agriculture systems. For instance, high values of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index have been shown to significantly reduce precipitation over Iberia and therefore induce low yield wheat crops in Portugal (Gouveia and Trigo, 2006). Port wine is produced from grapes grown in selected areas of the Douro valley, the so-called Região Demarcada do Douro, the first wine-producing region of the world (dating from 1758). A vintage wine is made from grapes that were grown and harvested in a single specified year and is classified as such because of the above average quality, a status that is attributed by Port houses in their best years. The Douro region presents distinctive climatic, topographic and soil characteristics. While the latest factors are fixed in time, the former may considerably change from year to year, exposing the Port wine productions to a large risk associated to interannual and intra-seasonal climatic variations. It is therefore to be expected that high quality wines are generally associated to optimum climatic conditions. In this work we have performed an analysis of the distinct behaviour of several meteorological fields in vintage versus non-vintage years. The relative importance of maximum and minimum temperature, precipitation and frost days is assessed for each individual month of the vegetative cycle and their importance to a high quality wine year is evaluated. Composites of 500 hPa geopotential height and sea level pressure fields over the Euro Atlantic region are also compared for vintage and non-vintage years. Results reveal a strong dependence of vintage production on maximum temperature and precipitation during spring and summer (the growing season), suggesting that this type of analysis may be used in developing a tool that may help anticipating a vintage year, based on already available seasonal climate outlooks.

Central Vein Dilatation Prior to Concomitant Port Implantation  

SciTech Connect

Implantation of subcutaneous port systems is routinely performed in patients requiring repeated long-term infusion therapy. Ultrasound- and fluoroscopy-guided implantation under local anesthesia is broadly established in interventional radiology and has decreased the rate of complications compared to the surgical approach. In addition, interventional radiology offers the unique possibility of simultaneous management of venous occlusion. We present a technique for recanalization of central venous occlusion and angioplasty combined with port placement in a single intervention which we performed in two patients. Surgical port placement was impossible owing to occlusion of the superior vena cava following placement of a cardiac pacemaker and occlusion of multiple central veins due to paraneoplastic coagulopathy, respectively. In both cases the affected vessel segments were dilated with balloon catheters and the port systems were placed thereafter. After successful dilatation, the venous access was secured with a 25-cm-long, 8-Fr introducer sheath, a subcutaneous pocket prepared, and the port catheter tunneled to the venipuncture site. The port catheter was introduced through the sheath with the proximal end connected to a 5-Fr catheter. This catheter was pulled through the tunnel in order to preserve the tunnel and, at the same time, allow safe removal of the long sheath over the wire. The port system functioned well in both cases. The combination of recanalization and port placement in a single intervention is a straightforward alternative for patients with central venous occlusion that can only be offered by interventional radiology.

Port of Galveston Solar Energy Project  

SciTech Connect

This study on the performance characteristics of existing solar technologies in a maritime environment was funded by an award given to The Port of Galveston (POG) from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The study includes research performed by The Center for Advanced Materials at the University of Houston (UH). The UH researchers examined how solar cell efficiencies and life spans can be improved by examining the performance of a variety of antireflective (AR) coatings mounted on the top of one of the POG’s Cruise Terminals. Supplemental supporting research was performed at the UH laboratories. An educational Kiosk was constructed with a 55” display screen providing information about solar energy, the research work UH performed at POG and real time data from the solar panels located on the roof of the Cruise Terminal. The Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) managed the project.

The state-of-the-art port of entry workshop  

SciTech Connect

The increased demand for freight movements through international ports of entry and the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) have increased freight traffic at border ports of entry. The State-of-the-Art Port of Entry Workshop initiated a dialogue among technologists and stakeholders to explore the potential uses of technology at border crossings and to set development priorities. International ports of entry are both information and labor intensive, and there are many promising technologies that could be used to provide timely information and optimize inspection resources. Participants universally held that integration of technologies and operations is critical to improving port services. A series of Next Steps was developed to address stakeholder issues and national priorities, such as the National Transportation Policy and National Drug Policy. This report documents the views of the various stakeholders and technologists present at the workshop and outlines future directions of study.

In vivo photoacoustic imaging of model of port wine stains.  

PubMed

Port wine stains are categorized as a benign capillary vascular malformation, which is hard to cure. In this paper, a photoacoustic microscopy system, which integrated a two-dimensional scanning galvanometer, an objective lens and a focused ultrasound transducer, was designed for noninvasive imaging of blood vessels of port wine stains model in vivo. Cock comb was chosen as the port wine stains model in the experiment. The blood vessels in x-y plane and x-z plane were imaged clearly. Experimental results demonstrate that photoacoustic microscopy can image the blood vessels of port wine stains model in vivo with high contrast and high resolution. It has the potential for clinical applications in detecting the blood vessels in port wine stains skin. PMID:22635179

Agressions sexuelles à Port-Gentil  

PubMed Central

Les agressions sexuelles portent atteinte à l'intégrité physique et psychologique des personnes qui en sont victimes et entraînent des conséquences néfastes. Le viol constitue la forme la plus accomplie de ces agressions. Cette étude rétrospective visait à répertorier les cas de violences sexuelles enregistrés auprès des greffes du tribunal et de la cour criminelle de Port-Gentil, et d'en donner une approche épidémiologique et criminologique. La prévalence des agressions sexuelles judiciarisées à Port-Gentil est de 15 cas par an. Parmi ces 45 dossiers d'agression sexuelle, 23 dossiers concernaient un attentat à la pudeur (51,1%) dont 18 cas impliquaient un mineur de moins de 15 ans (78,2% des attentats à la pudeur). Six dossiers concernaient une tentative de viol (13,3%). Onze dossiers concernaient un viol sur une femme de plus de 15 ans (24,4%). Deux dossiers concernaient un outrage public à la pudeur (4,4%) et 3 un détournement de mineur (6,6%). Les victimes étaient âgées de 4 à 65 ans avec un âge moyen de 13,4 ans. La plupart des victimes provenaient d'un milieu social défavorisé, prolétaire (61,1%). Les agresseurs étaient âgés de 16 à 62 ans avec un âge moyen de 29,6. Il importe de se pencher sur ce phénomène pour comprendre les enjeux que représentent les agressions sexuelles. Il faudra prendre en considération la dénonciation de l'agression sexuelle, le traumatisme subi et la prévention de tels crimes. PMID:24396558

Optimization of wireless power transmission for two port and three port inductive link  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recent developments have shown that the use of buried electronic devices or body implants has been becoming prevalent. Such low power devices are being powered up through non-contact means utilizing inductive coupling from external powering source. Inductive coupling not only solves the issue of energy availability but helps collecting the sensed data that can be archived or used for subsequent monitoring purposes. This paper analyses the performance of two-port and three-port inductive links in terms of power sent, power received and power transfer efficiency. All the above mentioned parameters have been plotted using analytical approach and obtaining simulation where required. The effect of mutual coupling has been studied in detail for both systems and demonstrated by plotting the power transfer efficiency for different values of the coefficient of coupling (k) using MATLAB. Results show that power transfer efficiency depends highly upon the value of k.

Transumbilical single port laparoscopic appendectomy using basic equipment: a comparison with the three ports method  

PubMed Central

Purpose Single port laparoscopic surgery is a rapidly evolving laparoscopic surgical approach. We report a comparison of transumbilical single port laparoscopic appendectomy (TUSPLA) and conventional laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA) in a Korean military hospital. Methods This single-center retrospective study of 63 patients who received laparoscopic appendectomy was conducted between May 2011 and October 2011. Nineteen patients received TUSPLA and 44 patients received CLA. Clinical outcomes such as operation time, hospital stay, postoperative pain, diet, and postoperative complication were reviewed. Results There were no statistically significant differences between TUSPLA and CLA patients, respectively, in operation time (58.9 minutes vs. 52.3 minutes, P = 0.262), duration of hospitalization (10.2 days vs. 10.6 days, P = 0.782), mean visual analogue scale score (2.6 vs. 2.5, P = 0.894), and return to diet (1.6 days vs. 1.7 days, P = 0.776). There were two cases (10.5%) of short-term complications in the TUSPLA group and four cases (9.1%) of short-term complications in the CLA group. All patients were fully recovered at discharge. Conclusion TUSPLA is a feasible alternative for CLA. When a glove port is used, no special instruments are needed. Thus, it can be performed in a hospital equipped with basic laparoscopic surgical instruments. PMID:23091793

Self port scanning tool : providing a more secure computing Environment through the use of proactive port scanning  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Secure computing is a necessity in the hostile environment that the internet has become. Protection from nefarious individuals and organizations requires a solution that is more a methodology than a one time fix. One aspect of this methodology is having the knowledge of which network ports a computer has open to the world, These network ports are essentially the doorways from the internet into the computer. An assessment method which uses the nmap software to scan ports has been developed to aid System Administrators (SAs) with analysis of open ports on their system(s). Additionally, baselines for several operating systems have been developed so that SAs can compare their open ports to a baseline for a given operating system. Further, the tool is deployed on a website where SAs and Users can request a port scan of their computer. The results are then emailed to the requestor. This tool aids Users, SAs, and security professionals by providing an overall picture of what services are running, what ports are open, potential trojan programs or backdoors, and what ports can be closed.

Subcutaneous Venous Port Implantation in Patients with Bilateral Breast Surgery  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term follow-up results of subcutaneous venous ports implanted in patients with bilateral mastectomies. We retrospectively reviewed the hospital charts and the electronic database of 17 patients with bilateral mastectomies whom had venous port implantation in our interventional radiology suit. A total of 17 ports were implanted to the paramedian (n = 3) and anterolateral (standard; n = 12) chest wall, on the trapezius muscle (n = 1), and to the antecubital fossa (n = 1). The mean age was 48.29 years (range: 35-60 years). The mean time interval from time of surgery to port implantation was 34 months (range: 1-84 months). The mean follow-up time was 15 months (range: 7-39 months). Follow-up parameters and classification of the complications was defined according to the SIR guidelines. No procedure-related complication occurred. A single case of mild late infection was noted and the infection rate was 0.19/1000 catheter days. Infusion chemotherapy administration was still going on in eight patients. Two patients died during the follow-up and four patients were lost after 6 months. Port removal was performed in three patients at follow-up because of the end of treatment. One trapezius port and one paramedian port weres among the removed ports without any problem. Although we have a limited number of patients, port placement to the anterior chest wall, either paramedian or anterolateral, on the trapezius muscle or to the antecubital fossa depending on the extent of the bilateral breast surgeries that can be performed with low complication rates by a careful patient and anatomical location selection by involving the patients in the decision-making process.

Single-port thoracoscopic rib resection: a case report  

PubMed Central

We describe a method of single-port thoracoscopic rib resection using a Gigli saw. Rib resection is typically performed with a large skin incision and soft tissue dissection. Some authors have described a thoracoscopic approach for rib resection from the inner side of the chest wall instead of the outside to decrease pain and improve quality of life. A 41-year-old Chinese male received single-port thoracoscopic rib resection with satisfactory recovery. We present the technique, which may expand the indications of single-port thoracoscopic procedures. PMID:24628945

Implantable Subcutaneous Venous Access Devices: Is Port Fixation Necessary? A Review of 534 Cases  

SciTech Connect

Conventional surgical technique of subcutaneous venous port placement describes dissection of the port pocket to the pectoralis fascia and suture fixation of the port to the fascia to prevent inversion of the device within the pocket. This investigation addresses the necessity of that step. Between October 8, 2004 and October 19, 2007, 558 subcutaneous chest ports were placed at our institution; 24 cases were excluded from this study. We performed a retrospective review of the remaining 534 ports, which were placed using standard surgical technique with the exception that none were sutured into the pocket. Mean duration of port use, total number of port days, indications for removal, and complications were recorded and compared with the literature. Mean duration of port use was 341 days (182,235 total port days, range 1-1279). One port inversion/flip occurred, which resulted in malfunction and necessitated port revision (0.2%). Other complications necessitating port removal included infection 26 (5%), thrombosis n = 2 (<1%), catheter fracture/pinch n = 1 (<1%), pain n = 2 (<1%), and skin erosion n = 3 (1%). There were two arrhythmias at the time of placement; neither required port removal. The overall complication rate was 7%. The 0.2% incidence of port inversion we report is concordant with that previously published, although many previous reports do not specify if suture fixation of the port was performed. Suture fixation of the port, in our experience, is not routinely necessary and may negatively impact port removal.

[Subcutaneous implantation type central venous port management in patients with malignant tumors effect of different antiseptic agents on central venous port-related infection].  

PubMed

Subcutaneous implantation type central venous ports(CV ports)are used in chemotherapy. Here, we prospectively examined the frequency of CV port-related infections when the disinfectant was changed from 10% povidone iodine to 1% chlorhexidine ethanol or 70% ethanol. The subjects were patients with malignant tumors, who had newly been implanted with CV ports. We examined CV port-related infections at 1 week after CV port implantation and every 2 weeks thereafter, following sterilization upon insertion of a Huber needle to the CV port. CV port evulsion due to CV port-related infection was noted in 3 patients(4.8%)in whom 15%chlorhexidine ethanol was used(n=62)and in 2 patients(3.3%)in whom 70% ethanol was used(n=60). Infection rates per 1,000 days of CV port use were 1.48% and 1.01%, respectively. Thus, the outcomes of sterilization using 1% chlorhexidine ethanol and 70% ethanol did not differ significantly from those on using 10% povidone iodine for sterilization, based on preliminary results at our institution(3 of 59 patients[5.1%]had port evulsion due to CV port-related infection and the infection rate per 1,000 days of CV port use was 1.47%, Akahane et al, 2012). Chlorhexidine ethanol and ethanol are very convenient to use because they dry quickly and do not need discoloration. Accordingly, chlorhexidine ethanol and ethanol might be useful in CV port management. PMID:25132030

Treatment of port-wine stains: analysis.  

PubMed

Port-wine stains (PWS) are bluish red skin stains that are caused by enlarged, ectatic blood vessels in the dermis. Laser treatment of PWS is analyzed from computation of the spatial distribution of heat production by direct absorption of the laser light and subsequent heat conduction. The absorption and scattering caused by oxyhemoglobin, epidermis, and dermis as a function of wavelength are utilized in this analysis. Ideal treatment is defined as coagulating the ectatic blood vessels without irreversible damage to the epidermis and dermis. The analysis shows that a millisecond pulsed, yellow dye laser at 577 nm (one of the large absorption bands in blood) is the laser of choice to treat PWS, offering as close to the "ideal treatment" as possible. The blue-green argon laser, which is currently the most frequently used laser for this purpose, is strongly recommended with irradiation times in milliseconds. Other lasers that are in clinical use, such as the red ruby and near-infrared Nd-YAG lasers, can provide selective treatment only when the epidermis is cooled concurrently. The CO2 laser, on the other hand, can coagulate the blood vessels only through heat conduction from the hot epidermis; hence, it has neither the treatment selectivity nor any other physical option to force this selectivity.

Port-O-Sim Object Simulation Application  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Port-O-Sim is a software application that supports engineering modeling and simulation of launch-range systems and subsystems, as well as the vehicles that operate on them. It is flexible, distributed, object-oriented, and realtime. A scripting language is used to configure an array of simulation objects and link them together. The script is contained in a text file, but executed and controlled using a graphical user interface. A set of modules is defined, each with input variables, output variables, and settings. These engineering models can be either linked to each other or run as standalone. The settings can be modified during execution. Since 2001, this application has been used for pre-mission failure mode training for many Range Safety Scenarios. It contains range asset link analysis, develops look-angle data, supports sky-screen site selection, drives GPS (Global Positioning System) and IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) simulators, and can support conceptual design efforts for multiple flight programs with its capacity for rapid six-degrees-of-freedom model development. Due to the assembly of various object types into one application, the application is applicable across a wide variety of launch range problem domains.

Single port laparoscopic appendectomy in children using glove port and conventional rigid instruments  

PubMed Central

Purpose To further improve the advantages of minimally invasive surgery, single port laparoscopic techniques continue to be developed. We report our initial experience with single port laparoscopic appendectomy (SPLA) in children and compare its outcomes to those of conventional laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA). Methods Clinical data were prospectively collected for SPLA cases performed at Chung-Ang University Hospital by a single surgeon between March 2011 and December 2011, including operative time, perioperative complications, conversion rate, and length of hospital stay. Each case of SPLA was performed using conventional laparoscopic instruments through Glove port placed into the single umbilical incision. To compare outcomes, a retrospective review was performed for those patients who underwent CLA between March 2010 and December 2010. Results Thirty-one patients underwent SPLA and 114 patients underwent CLA. Mean age (10.5 years vs. 11.1 years, P = 0.43), weight (48.2 kg vs. 42.9 kg, P = 0.27), and operation time (41.8 minutes vs. 37.9 minutes, P = 0.190) were comparable between both groups. Mean hospital stay was longer for CLA group (2.6 days vs. 3.7 days, P = 0.013). There was no conversion to conventional laparoscopic surgery in SPLA group. In CLA group, there were nine complications (7.9%) with 3 cases of postoperative ileuses and 6 cases wound problems. There was one complication (3.2%) of umbilical surgical site infection in SPLA group (P = 0.325). Conclusion The results of this study demonstrated that SPLA using conventional laparoscopic instruments is technically feasible and safe in children. SPLA using conventional laparoscopic instruments might be popularized by eliminating the need for specially designed instruments. PMID:24761405

Onshore ballast water treatment: a viable option for major ports.  

PubMed

Ballast water treatment consists of the elimination of exotic species. Currently, the development of alternative methods for this process is directed toward treatment onboard ships. However, we present onshore treatment as a viable alternative for ballast water treatment. We investigated onshore treatment in two iron ore ports with movement capacities of 25 and 90 million tons annually (Mta) that receive 7.5 and 25 million cubic meters annually (Mm(3)) of ballast water, respectively. Discrete event simulation was used as the method of analysis, considering the processes of arrival, berthing, ship loading and capture and treatment of ballast water. We analyzed data from 71 ships operating in these ports to validate our simulation model. We were able to demonstrate that onshore treatment does not impact the cargo capacity, occupation rate or average queuing time of ships at these ports. We concluded that implementation of onshore ballast water treatment may be practicable in ports that receive high volumes of ballast water. PMID:22920715

Self-regulating fuel staging port for turbine combustor  

DOEpatents

A port (60) for axially staging fuel and air into a combustion gas flow path 28 of a turbine combustor (10A). A port enclosure (63) forms an air path through a combustor wall (30). Fuel injectors (64) in the enclosure provide convergent fuel streams (72) that oppose each other, thus converting velocity pressure to static pressure. This forms a flow stagnation zone (74) that acts as a valve on airflow (40, 41) through the port, in which the air outflow (41) is inversely proportion to the fuel flow (25). The fuel flow rate is controlled (65) in proportion to engine load. At high loads, more fuel and less air flow through the port, making more air available to the premixing assemblies (36).

Sealing Assembly for Sealing a Port and the Like  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The sealing assembly for a port of a valve or the like is disclosed. In detail, the sealing assembly includes the port having a circular shaped end with a circular shaped knife-edge thereon. The sealing assembly further includes a hollow cap having a closed first end with an aperture therethrough and an open second end. The cap further includes internal threads adapted to mate with the external threads of the port. A gasket is mounted within the cap having flat first and second principle sides and made of a deformable metal, the first principle side of the gasket for mounting against the circular shaped knife edge of the port. A plunger having a circular shaped disc portion is adapted to fit within the hollow cap and is engagable with the first principle surface of the gasket and includes a shaft portion extending out of the aperture. The cap and shaft of the plunger include external wrenching flats. Thus when the cap is screwed onto the port and the plunger is prevented from rotating by a wrench mounted on the wrenching flats of the shaft portion of the plunger, the gasket is forced into engagement with the knife edge in pure compression and no rotation of the gasket occurs causing the knife edge to locally deform the gasket sealing of the port.

PORT, a CESM tool for the diagnosis of radiative forcing  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Parallel Offline Radiative Transfer (PORT) model is a stand-alone tool, driven by model-generated datasets, that can be used for any radiation calculation that the underlying radiative transfer schemes can perform, such as diagnosing radiative forcing. In its present distribution, PORT isolates the radiation code from the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM4) in the Community Earth System Model (CESM1). The current configuration focuses on CAM4 radiation with the constituents as represented in present-day conditions in CESM1, along with their optical properties. PORT includes an implementation of stratospheric temperature adjustment under the assumption of fixed dynamical heating, which is necessary to compute radiative forcing in addition to the more straightforward instantaneous radiative forcing. PORT can be extended to use radiative constituent distributions from other models or model simulations. Ultimately, PORT can be used with various radiative transfer models. As illustrations of the use of PORT, we perform the computation of radiative forcing from doubling of carbon dioxide, from the change of tropospheric ozone concentration from the year 1850 to 2000, and from present-day aerosols. The radiative forcing from tropospheric ozone (with respect to 1850) generated by a collection of model simulations under the Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project is found to be 0.34 (with an intermodel standard deviation of 0.07) W m-2. Present-day aerosol direct forcing (relative to no aerosols) is found to be -1.3 W m-2.

Natural thorium isotopes in marine sediment core off Labuan port  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Sediment core was collected from Labuan port and analyzed to determine the radioactivity of thorium (Th) isotopes. The objectives of this study are to determine the possible sources of Th isotopes at Labuan port and estimates the sedimentation rate based on 228Th/232Th model. The results suggest the 230Th and 232Th might be originated from terrestrial sedimentary rock while 228Th originated by authigenic origin. High ratio value of 230Th/232Th detected at the top surface sediment indicates the increasing of 230Th at the recent years which might be contributed from the anthropogenic sources. The sedimentation rate of core sediment from Labuan Port was successfully estimated by using 228Th/232Th model. The result show high sedimentation rate with 4.67 cm/year indicates rapid deposition occurred at this study area due to the high physical activity at the Labuan port. By assume the constant sedimentation rate at this area; we estimated the age of 142 cm core sediment obtained from Labuan port is 32 years started from 1981 to 2012. This chronology will be used in forthcoming research to investigate the historical profile of anthropogenic activities affecting the Labuan port.

Suit Port Aft Bulkhead Mockup 2008 Test Results  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Lunar Electric Rover (LER), formerly called the Small Pressurized Rover (SPR), is currently being carried as an integral part of the current Lunar Surface Architectures under consideration in the Constellation program. One element of the LER is the suit port, the means by which the crew performs Extravehicular Activities (EVAs). Two suit port deliverables were produced in fiscal year 2008: an aft bulkhead mockup for functional integrated testing with the 1-G LER mockup and a functional and pressurizable Engineering Unit (EU). This paper focuses on the aft bulkhead mockup test results from Desert Research and Technology Studies (D-RATS) October 2008 testing at Black Point Lava Flow (BPLF), Arizona. Refer to 39th International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES) for test results of the EU. The suit port aft bulkhead mockup was integrated with the mockup of the LER cabin and chassis. It is located on the aft bulkhead of the LER cabin structure and includes hatches, a locking mechanism, seals, interior and exterior suit don/doff aids, and exterior platforms to accommodate different crewmember heights. A lightweight mockup of the Mark III suit was tested with the suit port aft bulkhead mockup. There are several limitations to the suit port and mockup suits, and results of the suit port evaluation are presented and interpreted within the context of the limitations.

Transumbilical Retrieval of Surgical Specimens Through a Multichannel Port  

PubMed Central

Background: Laparoscopic surgery is often used to excise adnexal masses; however, the retrieval of specimens such as large cystic masses through conventional 5- or 10-mm ports is difficult and time-consuming. We compared outcomes between conventional laparoscopic surgery for adnexal masses and transumbilical specimen retrieval through a multichannel port during single- or 2-port laparoscopy. Methods: A total of 341 patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery for adnexal masses from November 2006 to December 2010 were included. The patients were divided into 2 groups: group I consisted of 249 patients who underwent conventional laparoscopy, and group II consisted of 92 patients who underwent single- or 2-port laparoscopy using a multichannel port. The clinical characteristics and operative outcomes of the 2 groups were compared. Results: The mean operation time was 51.8 ± 21.5 minutes in group I and 57.2 ± 23.9 minutes in group II. The mean specimen retrieval time was longer in group I (2.9 ± 4.0 minutes) than in group II (2.2 ± 1.8 minutes). Endoscopic bag rupture during specimen retrieval occurred in 11 patients in group I and in no patients in group II. Conclusions: The transumbilical retrieval of surgical specimens through a multichannel port with a wound retractor was safe and did not result in leakage of the cystic contents. This technique reduced the specimen retrieval time, especially for large masses. However, the mean operation time was not shortened with this procedure, because of the learning period and the time required to prepare the umbilical multichannel port. PMID:25408603

Retinopathy of prematurity in port harcourt, Nigeria.  

PubMed

Purpose. With many preterm babies now surviving as a result of improvement in neonatal care in Nigeria, the incidence of visual impairment/blindness as a result of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) may rise. We describe our findings after screening starts for the first time in a 15-year-old special care baby unit so as to establish the incidence and risk factors for developing ROP. Methods. A prospective study carried out at the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and Pediatric Outpatient Clinics of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital between January 1 and October 31, 2012. Fifty-three preterm babies (of 550 neonates admitted within the study period) delivered before 32 completed weeks and weighing less than 1500?g were included in the study following informed consent and the main outcome measure was the development of any stage of ROP. Results. Mean gestational age at birth was 28.98 ± 1.38 weeks. Mean birth weight was 1411 ± 128?g. Out of 550 babies admitted at SCBU, 87 of 100 preterms survived with 53 included in study. Twenty-five (47.2%) had different degrees of ROP with prevalence found to be 47.2%. Prevalence was higher (75%) in babies weighing <1300?g and those delivered before 30-week gestation (58%). Twenty-one (84%) had stage 1 no plus disease and 3 (12%) had stage 2 no plus disease. Only 1 (4%) had threshold disease in Zone 1. None had disease at stage 4 or 5 or AP-ROP. Receiving supplemental oxygen (? (2) = 6.17; P = 0.01), presence of sepsis (? (2) = 7.47; P = 0.006), multiple blood transfusions (? (2) = 5.11; P = 0.02), and delivery by caesarian section (? (2) = 4.22; P = 0.04) were significantly associated with development of ROP. There were no significant differences with gender, apneic spells, jaundice, or phototherapy. Conclusions and Relevance. All live infants with ROP were noted to regress spontaneously in this study. Though it may not be cost effective to acquire treatment facilities at the moment (the only child with treatable disease died), facilities for screening preterm infants displaying high risk features may be essential as smaller babies are saved.

Single port/incision laparoscopic surgery compared with standard three-port laparoscopic surgery for appendicectomy - a randomised controlled trial  

PubMed Central

Background Laparoscopic surgery has become the preferred approach for many procedures because of reduced post-operative pain, better recovery, shorter hospital stay and improved cosmesis. Single incision laparoscopic surgery is one of the many recent variants where either standard ports or a specially designed single multi-channel port is introduced through a single skin incision. While the cosmetic advantage of this is obvious, the evidence base for claims of reduced morbidity and better post-operative recovery is weak. This study aims to compare the effectiveness of single port/incision laparoscopic appendicectomy with standard three-port laparoscopic appendicectomy in adult patients at six weeks post-surgery. We also wish to assess the feasibility of a multicentre randomised controlled trial comparing single port/incision laparoscopic surgery with standard three-port laparoscopic surgery for other surgical techniques. Methods and design Patients diagnosed with suspected appendicitis and requiring surgical treatment will be randomised to receive either standard three-port or single incision laparoscopic surgery. Data will be collected from clinical notes, operation notes and patient reported questionnaires. The following outcomes will be considered: 1. Effectiveness of the surgical procedure in terms of: •patient reported outcomes •clinical outcomes •resource use 2. Feasibility of conducting a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in the emergency surgical setting by quantifying: •patient eligibility •randomisation acceptability •feasibility of blinding participants to the intervention received •completion rates of case report forms and patient reported questionnaires Trial registration ISRCTN66443895 (assigned 10 March 2011, first patient randomised 09 January 2011) PMID:23111090

An ideal independent source as an equivalent 1-port  

E-print Network

We consider a 1-port, not necessarily linear, with a dependent source, appearing at the port. The control of the source is entirely internal for the 1-port. If this source is a parallel voltage source, then the equivalent circuit is an ideal independent voltage source, and if it is a series current source, then the equivalent circuit is an ideal independent current source. (As usual, "ideal" source is defined as a source whose proposed function is independent of the load.) In the simple LTI case, these results can be obtained, respectively, by either taking RTh zero in the Thevenin equivalent, or taking RN infinite in the Norton equivalent; however the very fact that the final circuits do not include any linear elements indicates the possibility of generalization to nonlinear 1-ports. Some limitations on the circuit's structure (functional dependencies in it) are required, and the clearness of these limitations, i.e. clearness of the conditions for the 1-port to be an ideal source for any load, is the aesthetical point.

Single port laparoscopic right hemicolectomy for ileocolic intussusception  

PubMed Central

A 36-year-old male was admitted with right lower abdominal pain and diarrhea for more than 3 mo. Colonoscopy and a barium enema study revealed a submucosal tumor over the cecum, but computed tomography showed an ileal lipoma. There was no definitive diagnosis preoperatively, but ileocolic intussusception was noted during surgery. Single port laparoscopic radical right hemicolectomy was performed because intra-operative reduction failed. The histological diagnosis of the resected tumor was lipoma. Single port laparoscopic surgery has recently been proven to be safe and feasible. There are advantages compared with conventional laparoscopic surgery, such as smaller incision wounds, fewer port site complications, and easier conversion. However, there are some drawbacks which need to be overcome, such as difficulties in triangulation and instrument clashing. If there are no contraindications to laparoscopy, single port laparoscopic surgery can be performed safely and should be considered for diagnosis and treatment of intussusception in adults. Here, we report the first case of ileocolic intussusception successfully treated by single port laparoscopic surgery. PMID:23538552

Effect of varying internal geometry on the static performance of rectangular thrust-reverser ports  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An investigation has been conducted to evaluate the effects of several geometric parameters on the internal performance of rectangular thrust-reverser ports for nonaxisymmetric nozzles. Internal geometry was varied with a test apparatus which simulated a forward-flight nozzle with a single, fully deployed reverser port. The test apparatus was designed to simulate thrust reversal (conceptually) either in the convergent section of the nozzle or in the constant-area duct just upstream of the nozzle. The main geometric parameters investigated were port angle, port corner radius, port location, and internal flow blocker angle. For all reverser port geometries, the port opening had an aspect ratio (throat width to throat height) of 6.1 and had a constant passage area from the geometric port throat to the exit. Reverser-port internal performance and thrust-vector angles computed from force-balance measurements are presented.

Single-Port Thoracic Surgery: A New Direction  

PubMed Central

Single-port video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has slowly established itself as an alternate surgical approach for the treatment of an increasingly wide range of thoracic conditions. The potential benefits of fewer surgical incisions, better cosmesis, and less postoperative pain and paraesthesia have led to the technique’s popularity worldwide. The limited single small incision through which the surgeon has to operate poses challenges that are slowly being addressed by improvements in instrument design. Of note, instruments and video-camera systems that are narrower and angulated have made single-port VATS major lung resection easier to perform and learn. In the future, we may see the development of subcostal or embryonic natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery access, evolution in anaesthesia strategies, and cross-discipline imaging-assisted lesion localization for single-port VATS procedures.

GPON system with user controlled port-ID assignment method  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Passive Optical Network (PON) system with characters of low-cost and high-efficiency has become a promising solution for access network in relieving the bandwidth bottleneck problem. PON system can provide high-speed optical subscriber networks with broad bandwidth and long distance transmission. In current telecommunication carriers' PON system, different service has its given priority which is configured by carriers based on common requirements. However, different users have their own requirement and inflexibility of the given default service priority causes users' inconvenience and frustration. In this paper, we propose a novel method of user controlled Port-IDentifier (Port-ID) assignment in a Gigabit-capable PON (GPON) system. This method provides users a more individualized priority determination mechanism for end users through assigning a multi-level Port-ID to different service. Then users can manage their own bandwidth based on their requirements for different service and carriers can provide a flexible service management mechanism.

Applications of Multi Port Amplifier to personal satellite communications  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

In personal satellite communications, satellite antenna beam becomes narrow, and number of beams will be thirty to more than one hundred. This paper shows that Multi Port Amplifier is most suitable to multiple beam transmitter for personal communications satellite. It was shown that the single beam coverage area(cell) diameter is determined by personal earth station(PES) eirp, uplink C/No and uplink frequency band. Required number of cells for European or North American regional coverage at FPLMTS uplink frequency band is shown as around 32. It was shown that 32 beams systems will be easily implemented by using 2 set of 16-port MPA. Redundancy to SSPA failure is considered by increasing number of SSPAs. Actual configuration for 16-port MPA are briefly shown. The presented configuration will be easy to implement and the most economical solution.

Two-port laparoscopic adnexal surgery with a multichannel port using a wound retractor: is it safe and minimally scarring?  

PubMed

This study aimed to explore and evaluate the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic adnexal surgery using a two-port technique with a multichannel port, using a wound retractor, as previously reported. A series of patients undergoing two-port laparoscopy for a benign pelvic mass were enrolled in this study. To perform two-port laparoscopic surgery, the ancillary 5-mm trocar was inserted at the left iliac fossa under laparoscopic view after umbilical trocar insertion. The inserted umbilical trocar was removed and the skin incision was extended about 1.5 cm with index-finger-passable width. An Alexis wound retractor XS (Applied Medical, Santa Rancha Margarita, CA) was inserted through the umbilical wound. Two trocars were inserted into two fingers of a no. 6 surgical rubber glove and ligated with rubber bands. The wrist portion of the rubber glove covered the wound retractor, and the edge of the wound retractor was clamped with three Babcock clamps to prevent carbon-dioxide gas leakage. Both a 10-mm laparoscope and atraumatic forceps were inserted through the umbilical multichannel port. Laparoscopic adnexal surgery was performed in the usual manner. A total of 19 patients were enrolled. The operative procedures were adnexectomy (n = 8), myomectomy (n = 1), and ovarian cystectomy and/or salpingectomy (n = 10). There were no operative complications, conversion to laparotomy, or additional trocar insertions. The mean operation time was 81.3 +/- 28.7 min. The pathologic diagnosis were mature cystic teratoma (n = 6), benign cyst (n = 4), endometrial cyst (n = 3), serous cystadenoma (n = 3), mucinous cystadenoma (n = 1), leiomyoma (n = 1), and tubo-ovarian abscess (n = 1). The mean postoperative hospital stay was 4.0 +/- 1.3 days. This two-port method seems to be safe and needs no additional cost from the use of the conventional laparoscopic instruments. It is also cosmetically effective and highly appreciated by patients, leaving minimal abdominal scarring. PMID:19694570

Microsecond regime optical cross connect: 32 port to 32 port scalable device  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Presented here is a 32 × 32 optical switch for telecommunications applications capable of reconfiguring at speeds of up to 12 microseconds. The free space switching mechanism in this interconnect is a digital micromirror device (DMD) consisting of a 2D array of 10.8?m mirrors optimized for implementation at 1.55?m. Hinged along one axis, each micromirror is capable of accessing one of two positions in binary fashion. In general reflection based applications this corresponds to the ability to manifest only two display states with each mirror, but by employing this binary state system to display a set of binary amplitude holograms, we are able to access hundreds of distinct locations in space. We previously demonstrated a 7 × 7 switch employing this technology, providing a proof of concept device validating our initial design principles but exhibiting high insertion and wavelength dependent losses. The current system employs 1920 × 1080 DMD, allowing us to increase the number of accessible ports to 32 × 32. Adjustments in imaging, coupling component design and wavelength control were also made in order to improve the overall loss of the switch. This optical switch performs in a bit-rate and protocol independent manner, enabling its use across various network fabrics and data rates. Additionally, by employing a diffractive switching mechanism, we are able to implement a variety of ancillary features such as dynamic beam pick-off for monitoring purposes, beam division for multicasting applications and in situ attenuation control.

Finally Underway: Implementation of the Port Hope Area Initiative - 13151  

SciTech Connect

Two distinct yet closely related waste remediation projects are finally underway in Canada under the Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) which aims to clean up 1.7 million cubic metres (m{sup 3}) of low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) arising from 60 years of uranium and radium operations. Under the PHAI, the Port Hope Project and the smaller Port Granby Project will result in the consolidation of the LLRW within two highly engineered, above-ground mounds, to be constructed within the municipalities of Port Hope and Clarington. These projects will fulfill the federal government commitment to the safe, long-term management of the LLRW, as set out in the legal agreement signed by the government and the host municipalities in 2001. The federal authorization to commence PHAI Remediation and Construction Phase 2 was received in late 2011 and several enabling infrastructure construction and radiological survey contracts were awarded in 2012. The contracts to remediate the waste sites and construct the new engineered mounds will be tendered in 2013. At the end of Phase 2, environmental risks will be substantially mitigated, land development restrictions lifted, and an honourable legacy left for future generations. (authors)

Solid Rocket Booster Hydraulic Pump Port Cap Joint Load Testing  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The solid rocket booster uses hydraulic pumps fabricated from cast C355 aluminum alloy, with 17-4 PH stainless steel pump port caps. Corrosion-resistant steel, MS51830 CA204L self-locking screw thread inserts are installed into C355 pump housings, with A286 stainless steel fasteners installed into the insert to secure the pump port cap to the housing. In the past, pump port cap fasteners were installed to a torque of 33 Nm (300 in-lb). However, the structural analyses used a significantly higher nut factor than indicated during tests conducted by Boeing Space Systems. When the torque values were reassessed using Boeing's nut factor, the fastener preload had a factor of safety of less than 1, with potential for overloading the joint. This paper describes how behavior was determined for a preloaded joint with a steel bolt threaded into steel inserts in aluminum parts. Finite element models were compared with test results. For all initial bolt preloads, bolt loads increased as external applied loads increased. For higher initial bolt preloads, less load was transferred into the bolt, due to external applied loading. Lower torque limits were established for pump port cap fasteners and additional limits were placed on insert axial deformation under operating conditions after seating the insert with an initial preload.

Social Archaeological Approaches in Port and Harbour Studies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This introductory article to the special issue of the Journal of Maritime Archaeology offers a comparative perspective on the theme of archaeological theory and social archaeological approaches to ports and harbours. As a specialist in Roman archaeology I was keen to explore the way in which specialists in other areas of archaeology approached the archaeology of ports and harbours and whether different approaches and perspectives may be able to add nuances to the way in which material is interpreted. The volume brings together a collection of exciting new studies which explore social themes in port and harbour studies with the intention to encourage debate and the use of new interpretative perspectives. This article examines a number of interpretative themes including those relating to architectural analyse, human behaviour, action and experience and artefact analysis. These themes help us to move towards a more theoretically informed ports and harbour archaeology which focuses on meaning as well as description. The emphasis on theory within archaeology allows us to be more ambitious in our interpretative frameworks including in Roman archaeology which has not tended to embrace the theoretical aspects of the archaeological discipline with as much enthusiasm as some other areas of archaeology.

Now, as then, they influence patterns of use and settlement, and contribute to the form of

Simplified calibration strategy for an optical six-port reflectometer.  

PubMed

A simplified calibration strategy is presented to calibrate a recently proposed optical frequency domain six-port reflectometer for measuring dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) devices. The calibration technique only requires three calibration standards that can be easily obtained. Realistic simulation results of a Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) measurement show that excellent accuracy can be obtained with this technique. PMID:19498854

The 2009 Schizophrenia PORT Psychosocial Treatment Recommendations and Summary Statements  

PubMed Central

The Schizophrenia Patient Outcomes Research Team (PORT) psychosocial treatment recommendations provide a comprehensive summary of current evidence-based psychosocial treatment interventions for persons with schizophrenia. There have been 2 previous sets of psychosocial treatment recommendations (Lehman AF, Steinwachs DM. Translating research into practice: the Schizophrenia Patient Outcomes Research Team (PORT) treatment recommendations. Schizophr Bull. 1998;24:1–10 and Lehman AF, Kreyenbuhl J, Buchanan RW, et al. The Schizophrenia Patient Outcomes Research Team (PORT): updated treatment recommendations 2003. Schizophr Bull. 2004;30:193–217). This article reports the third set of PORT recommendations that includes updated reviews in 7 areas as well as adding 5 new areas of review. Members of the psychosocial Evidence Review Group conducted reviews of the literature in each intervention area and drafted the recommendation or summary statement with supporting discussion. A Psychosocial Advisory Committee was consulted in all aspects of the review, and an expert panel commented on draft recommendations and summary statements. Our review process produced 8 treatment recommendations in the following areas: assertive community treatment, supported employment, cognitive behavioral therapy, family-based services, token economy, skills training, psychosocial interventions for alcohol and substance use disorders, and psychosocial interventions for weight management. Reviews of treatments focused on medication adherence, cognitive remediation, psychosocial treatments for recent onset schizophrenia, and peer support and peer-delivered services indicated that none of these treatment areas yet have enough evidence to merit a treatment recommendation, though each is an emerging area of interest. This update of PORT psychosocial treatment recommendations underscores both the expansion of knowledge regarding psychosocial treatments for persons with schizophrenia at the same time as the limitations in their implementation in clinical practice settings.

Early Outcomes of Single-Port Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery for Primary Spontaneous Pneumothorax  

PubMed Central

Background Recently, single-port video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has been proposed as an alternative to the conventional three-port VATS for primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP). The aim of this study is to evaluate the early outcomes of the single-port VATS for PSP. Methods VATS was performed for PSP in 52 patients from March 2012 to March 2013. We reviewed the medical records of these 52 patients, retrospectively. Nineteen patients underwent the conventional three-port VATS (three-port group) and 33 patients underwent the single-port VATS (single-port group). Both groups were compared according to the operation time, number of wedge resections, amount of chest tube drainage during the first 24 hours after surgery, length of chest tube drainage, length of hospital stay, postoperative pain score, and postoperative paresthesia. Results There was no difference in patient characteristics between the two groups. There was no difference in the number of wedge resections, operation time, or amount of drainage between the two groups. The mean lengths of chest tube drainage and hospital stay were shorter in the single-port group than in the three-port group. Further, there was less postoperative pain and paresthesia in the single-port group than in the three-port group. These differences were statistically significant. The mean size of the surgical wound was 2.10 cm (range, 1.6 to 3.0 cm) in the single-port group. Conclusion Single-port VATS for PSP had many advantages in terms of the lengths of chest tube drainage and hospital stay, postoperative pain, and paresthesia. Single-port VATS is a feasible technique for PSP as an alternative to the conventional three-port VATS in well-selected patients. PMID:25207248

Economic and geographic backgrounds of land reclamation in Japanese ports.  

PubMed

Under the present legal system, environmental impacts are usually assessed on condition that reclamation plans are given clearly. Although impact magnitude depends on reclamation scales, the economic and geographic backgrounds of reclamation scales have been rarely analyzed. Hence, properties of reclamation in port districts were investigated. The long-term trend showed that the area newly reclaimed per year has decreased rapidly since the first oil crisis; while the speed of the decrease dropped after 1984. The distributions of increased reclamation area planned against its water depth had one or two peaks in 1989-1991 and 1996-1998. These peaks resulted mainly from "island-type" reclamation, and shifted from shallow to deep sites. The areas of port districts had major effects on increased area of reclamation and maximum water depth in 1989-1991, while such effects were not observed in 1996-1998. Land price had some effects for deepening water depth of reclamation in both periods. PMID:12787624

Port Development and Town Planning in North West England  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper examines the links between the development of harbour facilities and planned towns, especially in the head port area of Carlisle in North West England. Largely based on documentary research and field observation it examines the development of Whitehaven and other Atlantic ports it influenced in Cumberland, Westmorland and north Lancashire. It examines these developments in their international context and shows how they were initiated by local landowners to maximise the output of their estates and to enhance their personal prestige. Beginning in the seventeenth century the paper demonstrates how this tradition of town and harbour foundation continued on into the nineteenth century when it was adopted by corporate concerns, especially railway companies. The paper concludes by highlighting how harbour developments associated with town planning helped to urbanise and stimulate the economy of a previously under-developed area. Two maps identify the locations of the places discussed.

A product of a lab (Journalism 677) at San Francisco State, NewsPort "seeks to address a serious concern over bringing the hard-won standards of accuracy, attribution, multiple sourcing, comprehension and fairness to the growing power of journalism on the World Wide Web." It's a sober mission, belied by the often flashy front-end that each story wears. But beneath the bells and whistles there's quality content here; from Microsoft's acquisitive nature to the increasing resistance of microbes to antibiotics, the treatments in Issue 3 are deep and often fearless. Just when it seemed that Java gimmickry would mean the end of meaningful content on the Web, NewsPort provides a hopeful portent.

Port wine landscape: railroads, phylloxera, and agricultural science.  

PubMed

It is easy to understand why regions that produce very fine goods such as port wine tend to conceal technological and scientific inputs and praise the uniqueness of the terroir. This paper suggests that, during the last decades of the nineteenth century, viticulture in the Douro region of Portugal was as much a product of soil, local farming traditions, and individual entrepreneurship as it was of modern state science and national politics for agricultural improvement. the unprecedented public projects of building a railroad and fighting phylloxera permanently changed the land of port wine. Moreover, those engineering practices of rationalization, simplification, and standardization that were inscribed on Douro's landscape proved essential for the Portuguese experience of modernization and nation-building.

An analytical and experimental study of injection-locked two-port oscillators  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A Ku-band IMPATT oscillator with two distinct output power ports was injection-locked alternately at both ports. The transmission locking bandwidth was nearly the same for either port. The lower free running power port had a reflection locking bandwidth that was narrower than its transmission locking one. Just the opposite was found at the other port. A detailed analytical model for two-port injection-locked oscillators is presented, and its results agree quite well with the experiments. A critique of the literature on this topic is included to clear up misconceptions and errors. It is concluded that two-port injection-locked oscillators may prove useful in certain communication systems.

Gain-scheduling control of port-fuel-injection processes  

Microsoft Academic Search

In this paper, we first obtain an event-based sampled discrete-time linear system to represent a port-fuel-injection process based on wall-wetting dynamics, and formulate it as a linear parameter varying (LPV) system. The system parameters used in the engine fuel system model are engine speed, temperature, and load. These system parameters can be measured in real-time through physical or virtual sensors.
