OBJECTIVE: A meta-analysis of all randomised controlled studies that compare outcomes of transradial versus the transfemoral route to better define best practice in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). DESIGN: A Medline and Embase search was conducted using the search terms 'transradial,' 'radial', 'STEMI', 'myocardial' and 'infarction'. SETTING: Randomised controlled studies that compare outcomes of transradial versus the transfemoral route. PATIENTS: A total of nine studies were identified that consisted of 2977 patients with STEMI. Interventions Studies that compare outcomes of transradial versus the transfemoral route. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary clinical outcomes of interest were (1) mortality; (2) major adverse cardiac events (MACE); (3) major bleeding and (4) access site complications. RESULTS: Transradial PCI was associated with a reduction in mortality (OR 0.53, 95% CI 0.33 to 0.84; p=0.008), MACE (OR 0.62, 95% CI 0.43 to 0.90; p=0.012), major bleeding events (OR 0.63, 95% CI 0.35-1.12; p=0.12) and access site complications (OR 0.30, 95% CI 0.19 to 0.48; p<0.0001) compared with procedures performed through the femoral route. CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis demonstrates a significant reduction in mortality, MACE and major access site complications associated with the transradial access site in STEMI. The meta-analysis supports the preferential use of radial access for STEMI PCI. [less ▲]

Between the 2001 and the 2011 censuses, the part of the persons in employment in the total population decreased slightly from 43.9 % to 43.2 %. For men this recoil was more important. The percentage of the men in employment passed from 52.2 % to 48.3 % of the total of the male population. The part of the women in employment on the other hand, increased from 35.7 % of the female population in 2001 to 38.2 % in 2011. However, in all the age groups, the men remain more numerous to be in employment than the women. The age of the beginning of the professional life increased, but the active life is also longer and this especially for women. The foreigners are relatively more numerous to be in employment (48.5 % of the foreign population) than the Luxembourgers (39.5 % of the Luxembourgish population). In medium age groups, the employment rates of the Luxembourgers are however higher than those of the foreigners. On the other hand, the foreigners are proportionally more numerous to be in employment at more advanced ages than the Luxembourgers. [less ▲]

Modeling approaches are based on various paradigms, e.g., aspect-oriented, feature-oriented, object-oriented, and logic-based. Modeling approaches may cover requirements models to low level design models, are developed for various purposes, use various means of composition, and thus are difficult to compare. However, such comparisons are critical to help practitioners know under which conditions approaches are most applicable, and how they might be successfully generalized and combined to achieve end-to-end methods. This paper reports on work done at the 2nd International Comparing Modeling Approaches (CMA) workshop towards the goal of identifying potential comprehensive modeling methodologies with a particular emphasis on composition: (i) an improved set of comparison criteria; (ii) 19 assessments of modeling approaches based on the comparison criteria and a common, focused case study.

An existing office building with an active double skin façade in Luxembourg has been analyzed. In the first step in-situ measurements have been performed. For this purpose outside, inside and cavity conditions have been measured for representative summer and winter conditions. In a second step, a thermal simulation using TRNSYS was performed. The simulation model has been compared to the time limited series of measurements and thus has been validated for some of the annual meteorological conditions. Then the model has been extrapolated to a whole year in order to assess the energy performance of the given façade. Further a parametric study of alternative façades has been carried out based on the validated simulation model to assess their own performances. For the given case study building, the double skin concept energetically performs well compared to other concepts with non outside (non weather exposed) solar protection, but worse than an external solar protection. The thermal comfort level in the rooms has also been determined by simulation - the calculated room averaged comfort level is quite optimal, but further investigations regarding the local comfort close to the glazed façades still have to be achieved.

In network level forensics, Domain Name Service (DNS) is a rich source of information. This paper describes a new approach to mine DNS data for forensic purposes. We propose a new technique that leverages semantic and natural language processing tools in order to analyze large volumes of DNS data. The main research novelty consists in detecting malicious and dangerous domain names by evaluating the semantic similarity with already known names. This process can provide valuable information for reconstructing network and user activities. We show the efficiency of the method on experimental real datasets gathered from a national passive DNS system. [less ▲]

Next generation networks are moving towards the convergence of mobile, fixed and broadcasting services in one standard platform, which requires the co-existence of satellite and terrestrial networks in the same spectrum. This framework has motivated the concept of cognitive Satellite Communication (SatComs). In this aspect, the problem of exploiting Spectrum Sensing (SS) techniques for a dual polarized fading channel is considered. In this paper, the performance of Energy Detection (ED) technique is evaluated in the context of a co-existence scenario of a satellite and a terrestrial link. Diversity combining techniques such as Equal Gain Combining (EGC) and Selection Combining (SC) are considered to enhance the SS efficiency. Furthermore, analytical expressions for probability of detection (Pd) and probability of false alarm (Pf ) are presented for these techniques in the considered fading channel and the sensing performance is studied through analytical and simulation results. Moreover, the effect of Cross Polar Discrimination (XPD) on the sensing performance is presented and it is shown that SS efficiency improves for low XPD. [less ▲]

This paper examines the home market effect in the framework of heterogeneous firms. The paper finds that not only trade costs but also fixed trade costs cause the home market effect and the reverse home market effect can occur as the fixed trade costs are very low. In addition, the agnitude of the home market effect varies with industry characteristics. Industries with low trade costs, high fixed production costs, low fixed export costs, and high productivity dispersion tend to be more concentrated in large countries. Finally, the negative impact of trade barriers on the home market effect is dampened by the elasticity of substitution which is contrary with the result of the homogeneous firm model. An empirical model is built to test these predictions for developed countries. The empirical results are consistent with the predictions of the theoretical model. [less ▲]
