We present two cases of persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA) associated with a giant aneurysm originating at the opening of the PPTA on the internal carotid artery (ICA). In one case, opening of the PPTA occurred 4 months after balloon occlusion of the ICA, when a giant aneurysm located at the cavernous segment of the ICA was being treated. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The management of intracranial pseudoaneurysms is controversial. The purpose of this study was to provide a preliminary evaluation of the clinical efficacy of a Willis covered stent specially designed for the intracranial vasculature in the management of a pseudoaneurysm of the cranial internal carotid artery (CICA). MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The endovascular approach, with the use of Guglielmi detachable coils (GDC), has been increasingly used to treat ruptured and unruptured cerebral aneurysms in recent years. Our objective was to assess the mid- to long-term radiologic outcome of cerebral aneurysms treated with GDC embolization. METHODS One hundred and sixty-two(More)
The first elemental cluster with hexacapped trigonal bipyramidal geometry is revealed in the luminescent undecanuclear silver complex which is stabilized by nine dithiocarbamate ligands and has an interstitial hydride. The hydride position within the Ag(11) cage is confirmed by a DFT investigation.
OBJECTIVE To report our experiences in the treatment of recurrent intracranial aneurysms with re-coiling or covered stents. METHODS A total of 291 patients with 305 intracranial aneurysms were treated with detachable coils, and 41 (28.9%) of 142 patients with aneurysms in the internal carotid artery had a recurrent aneurysm during the follow-up period.(More)
BACKGROUND Unlike other IL-17 family members, the Th2-derived cytokine IL-25 (IL-17E) induces (promotes) Th2 responses. One or both of the two receptors for IL-25 (IL-17RA, IL-17RB) is expressed on inflammatory cells and tissue structural cells, suggesting that in addition to promoting Th2-type inflammation IL-25 may also act on structural cells at sites of(More)
The study was conducted to investigate the effects of dietary inclusion of fermented cottonseed meal (FCM) on the ileal and cecal bacterial microbiota of broiler chickens. A total of 300 newborn yellow-feathered broiler chickens were randomly divided into 2 treatments with 3 replicates each (50 birds per replicate): control and 80 g/kg of FCM group. The(More)
The experiment was conducted to study the effects of sodium butyrate (SB) on growth, haematological and immunological characteristics in weanling pigs. A total of 100 male piglets (Duroc×Landrace×Yorkshire) with a body weight of 8.0 ± 0.2 kg weaned at the age of 28 days were randomly assigned to two treatments with five replicates and 10 pigs per replicate.(More)
BACKGROUND RELM-β has been implicated in airways inflammation and remodelling in murine models. Its possible functions in human airways are largely unknown. The aim was to address the hypothesis that RELM-β plays a role in extracellular matrix deposition in asthmatic airways. METHODS The effects of RELM-β gene deficiency were studied in a model of(More)
The hydrido copper(I) and silver(I) clusters incorporating 1,1-dicyanoethylene-2,2-dithiolate (i-MNT) ligands are presented in this paper. Reactions of M(I) (M = Cu, Ag) salts, [Bu(4)N](2)[S(2)CC(CN)(2)], with the anion sources ([Bu(4)N][BH(4)] for H(-), [Bu(4)N][BD(4)] for D(-)) in an 8:6:1 molar ratio in THF produce octanuclear penta-anionic Cu(I)/Ag(I)(More)
