A sufficient patency of the central vein ipsilateral to atriovenous fistula is the lifeline for hemodialysis patients. We describe a case with left dialysis fistula who underwent left-sided pectoral implantation of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator via right subclavicular venous access in order to avoid the possibility of development of left subclavian stenosis or occlusion and to achieve lower defibrillation thresholds. This approach may serve as an alternative choice in patients unsuitable for left-sided venous access and with higher defibrillation thresholds on right-positioned implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
Mean time since implantation was 71±18months. An intracardiac inside-out abrasion was confirmed by fluoroscopy in 6 patients (11.5%). Mean time from lead implantation to detection of intracardiac inside-out abrasion was 79±14months. In all patients with an intracardiac inside-out abrasion, ICD int...
We measure the information leakage of the resulting timing
Side channel in schedulers serving a legitimate user and a malicious attacker,
Using a privacy metric defined as the Shannon equivocation of the user's job
Density. We show that the commonly used first-come-first-serve (FCFS) scheduler
We consider several finite-horizon Bayesian multi-armed bandit
Problems with side constraints which are computationally intractable (NP-Hard)
And for which no optimal (or near optimal) algorithms are known to exist with
Sub-exponential running time. All of these problems violate the "idling bandit
