BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Fluoroquinolone has a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity, and is widely used for gonorrhoea treatment. However, its efficacy can be compromised by the drug-resistance property of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates. Most resistant cases of N. gonorrhoeae are associated with mutations in the quinolone-resistance-determining-region(More)
So far, studies of topical tranexamic acid (TXA) in total hip arthroplasty (THA) were still lacking and controversial. We conducted this randomized double-blind controlled trial which included 101 patients to assess the effect of a high-dose 3g topical TXA in THA. The results showed that 3g topical TXA could significantly reduce transfusions from 22.4% to(More)
The direct anterior approach (DAA) to total hip arthroplasty has been promoted as a minimally invasive alternative to the lateral approach, which we sought to verify by systematically reviewing and meta-analyzing the literature comparing clinical, radiographic, and surgical outcomes. Two reviewers independently searched PubMed, OVID, and Web of Science(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal dosage and timing of tranexamic acid (TXA) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are undetermined. The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of multiple boluses of intravenous TXA on hidden blood loss (HBL), inflammatory response, and knee function after primary TKA without tourniquet. METHODS A total of 151 patients were(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to compare the efficacy and safety of the combined use of tranexamic acid (TXA) with the intravenous (IV) or local use alone in total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS 210 patients were randomised to a IV group, a local group or a combined group. Participants received 1.5 g IV-TXA in the IV group, 3 g local TXA in the local(More)
OBJECTIVES The number of medical universities and their faculty members has significantly increased in Iran during the last 30 years. This development has led to the training of a large number of healthcare professionals. But, its effect on medical sciences productivity has not yet been fully analyzed. Here, we use a bibliometric analysis to assess the(More)
Size effect of multiferroics is important for its potential applications in new type miniaturized multifunctional devices and thus has been widely studied. However, is there special size effect in the materials with spiral modulated spin structure (such as BiFeO3)? It is still an issue to be investigated. In this report, structural, magnetic and(More)
Intravenous tranexamic acid (TXA) has been identified to be effective in total knee arthroplasty (TKA), but the effect of topical application is still unclear. Therefore, the authors conducted a meta-analysis to assess the effect of topical TXA in TKA. Twelve trials with a total of 1179 knees were included. The results revealed that the application of(More)
Micro-blogging is becoming increasingly prevalent in global world, so is it in China. Researches concerning self-presentational behavior on micro-blog, and how micro-blogging influences social interaction on-line, have found some interesting results. However, existing findings are limited to an unsystematic theoretical background and plain understanding of(More)
In order to figure out the logistics cost of joint distribution correctly and reasonably, firstly the meaning of joint distribution has been introduced, then the construction and characteristics of logistics cost of the joint distribution have been discussed deeply and we conclude the costs of joint distribution are composed of the design cost, coordinate(More)
