Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a complex disorder with an unclear etiology and pathogenesis. In previous studies, genome-wide linkage and genetic association analyses have been carried out to find genetic factors linked with AIS. In this study, we examined whether the susceptibility to AIS is associated with MATN1 gene polymorphisms in a Korean(More)
Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) is a multifunctional protein kinase crucial for neuronal apoptosis as well as neurite growth. We have previously shown that JNK activity is correlated with spiral ganglion neuron (SGN) apoptosis following hair cell loss in rats (Alam et al., 2007) implying that JNK inhibition may have therapeutic potential to protect SGNs in deaf(More)
STUDY DESIGN We performed a prospective study to evaluate the reliability of using triggered electromyography (EMG) for predicting pedicle wall breakthrough during the placement of pedicle screw in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery. PURPOSE We wanted to correlate pedicle wall breakthrough with the triggered EMG threshold of stimulation and the(More)
