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 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)
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)
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)
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)
Headache can be attributed to cranial or cervical vascular disorders including ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack, non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage, unruptured vascular malformation, arteritis, carotid-vertebral artery pain, and cerebral venous thrombosis. Here, we present a case report of unruptured saccular aneurysm with migraine. The(More)
We report on a Ag5 coordination polymer and discrete Ag8 and Ag10 dithiophosphate clusters. The cluster formation and structures were affected by the stoichiometric control of the M : L molar ratios used. The cluster [Ag5{S2P(O(i)Pr)2}4]n(PF6)n, , is a monomeric unit within a coordination polymer formed through the reaction between [Ag(CH3CN)4]PF6 and the(More)
OBJECTIVES To observe the changes in serum antibody level after mass immunization with vaccine against hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) and to evaluate its efficacy and effectiveness in the prevalent areas. METHODS Healthy people aged 16 to 60 years in the villages were recruited as study subjects, excluding those suffered from HFRS(More)
