A G2 inferior vena cava filter migrated completely into the right ventricle, resulting in chest pain, ventricular tachycardia, and hypotension in a 63-year-old man. Due to the filter's position, the patient was at high risk for further life-threatening cardiopulmonary complications. Percutaneous filter retrieval was successfully performed as a less-invasive alternative to open cardiothoracic surgery.

    Conference Paper: Some new EC/AUED codes
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
    ABSTRACT: A novel construction that differs from the traditional way of constructing systematic EC/AUED/(error-correcting/all unidirectional error-detecting) codes is presented. The usual method is to take a systematic t -error-correcting code and then append a tail so that the code can detect more than t errors when they are unidirectional. In the authors' construction, the t -error-correcting code is modified in such a way that the weight distribution of the original code is reduced. The authors then have to add a smaller tail. Frequently they have less redundancy than the best available systematic t -EC/AUED codes

    ABSTRACT: A novel algorithm for compacting a VLSI chip on the macrocell level is presented. Compared to previous algorithms, the technique can handle larger designs, produces higher-quality output, and reduces designer intervention as much as possible. Jogs are automatically introduced in the connecting wires to achieve the needed flexibility for placing cells into optimal positions

    ABSTRACT: The temporal and spectral response of bulk GaAs Fabry-Perot microcavities have been investigated in the subpicosecond regime at room temperature. Time resolved reflectivity measurements show a strong reshaping of a Gaussian fs-pulse after reflection from a microcavity caused by group velocity dispersion. The pulse distortion agrees fairly well with model calculations using Fourier transform analysis. Time integrated degenerate four-wave mixing experiments show that response times of the cavity as short as 300 fs were achieved
