In contrast to consistent epidemiologic evidence of the role of sexual transmission of human papillomavirus (HPV) in adults, various routes may be related to HPV infection in infants. We have assessed the extent of HPV infection during the perinatal period, and the relationship between mode of delivery and vertical transmission. A total of 291 pregnant(More)
In this study, we assessed the antioxidant efficacy and nutritional value of 10 leafy edible plants and evaluated their potential as natural antioxidants for meat preservation. We measured total phenolic content, 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazil (DPPH) radical scavenging activity, and vitamin C, chlorophyll, and carotenoid contents of 70% ethanol and water(More)
We present a case of combined general anesthesia with muscle relaxant and epidural analgesia for hemicolectomy in a 56-year-old woman with Pompe disease. Progressive pulmonary function loss predisposes Pompe disease patients to an increased risk of aspiration pneumonia, atelectasis, and all pulmonary infections. Given the impaired cough resulting from(More)
Recently, the techniques that utilize the result from the analysis based on big data in the decision making process are more frequently used in all areas of the society. The number of the cases where the transportation big data (e.g., Transportation card data, ATMS data, etc.) that are generated in the transportation sector are used in transportation(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is a life-threatening condition, despite advances in diagnostic technology and strategies for treatment. A strong predictor of mortality in this condition is septic shock. This study describes clinical, biochemical, and radiologic features in patients with PLA with or without septic shock, with the intent of(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of 5% lidocaine patch in reducing propofol-induced pain and cannula-induced pain. METHODS In a randomized, double-blind study, 126 patients were divided into one of three groups: pretreatment with a 5% lidocaine patch (Lidotop®) and premixed 2 ml of normal saline with 1.5 mg/kg of 1%(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous studies have investigated the best method of selecting the appropriate size of endotracheal tube (ETT) for children. However, none of the methods or formulae for selection of ETT size have shown better prediction over another, and they have required complex formulae calculation or even use of cumbersome equipment. Recursive partitioning(More)
