Aloe has been widely used in phytomedicine. Phytomedicine describes aloe as a herb which has anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anti-aging effects. In recent years several cases of aloe-induced hepatotoxicity were reported. But its pharmacokinetics and toxicity are poorly described in the literature. Here we report three cases with aloe-induced toxic(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC Colonoscopy is a common procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal disease. Traditionally, sedation and monitoring during colonoscopy have been performed by gastroenterologists.

However, many studies on mandible reduction procedures are based on a two-dimensional concept, with a particular focus on one dimension: the width of the lower face. Many Korean individuals have class I occlusion with a skeletal class III pattern. When a conventional mandible reduction procedure is used on(More)
We report a rare case of a 72-year-old female who developed extensive subcutaneous emphysema, bilateral pneumothoraces, pneumomediastinum, pneumoperitoneum, and pneumoretroperitoneum after a percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy. The patient's T-cannula was accidentally connected to the oxygen line with a non-perforated connector. The patient rapidly(More)
Neural networks have been applied in various new ways to the problem of short-term load forecasting for power systems. Virtually all of these methods are based on using statistical patterns, which are perceived between the yearly load histories of the system to predict the forecasted year's demand. The proposed method also uses a neural network approach,(More)
The goal of cancer treatment is generally pain reduction and function recovery. However, drug therapy does not treat pain adequately in approximately 43% of patients, and the latter may have to undergo a nerve block or neurolysis. In the case reported here, a 42-year-old female patient with lung cancer (adenocarcinoma) developed paraplegia after receiving(More)
