AIMS To elucidate the risk factors for lower extremity amputation (LEA) in patients of diabetic foot disease with different Wagner gradings. METHODS This study was conducted in a multidisciplinary diabetic foot care center. Demographic characteristics, laboratory data, disease history, ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) and Wagner classification were(More)
Papillary and follicular thyroid cancer is a common malignancy in young patients, and the incidence of this cancer has been increasing. The aims of this study are to assess the clinical characteristics of papillary and follicular thyroid cancer in young patients and evaluate the long-term therapeutic outcomes and prognostic factors for cancer mortality and(More)
Voice over IP (VoIP) over WLAN (VoWLAN) is an important application for public and private WLANs. However, VoWLAN systems suffer from several technical challenges such as power consumption of a WLAN station (STA) and service capacity of an access point (AP), making the commercial deployment of a large-scale VoWLAN service problematic. This study presents a(More)
AIMS This study examined the predictors for lower extremity amputation (LEA) in patients with diabetic foot ulcers according to kidney function and, in the case of dialysis patients, specifically evaluated the vasculature with the ankle-brachial index (ABI) and Doppler waveforms. METHODS Among 658 diabetic patients admitted to the Diabetic Foot Care(More)
Patients with diabetes are at a higher risk of having diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) or necrotizing fasciitis (NF). The present study aims to examine the clinical characteristics and associated risk factors for lower-extremity amputation (LEA) in patients with DFU complicated by NF.We retrospectively reviewed patients treated at a major diabetic foot center in(More)
BACKGROUND There are few reports of Pseudomonas aeruginosa liver abscess (PALA) in the literature, and clinical information regarding its risk factors, route of transmission, and clinical course remains limited. METHODS The medical records of 1076 patients with pyogenic liver abscess treated at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital were reviewed. RESULTS Twenty(More)
BACKGROUND Antithyroid drug (ATD)-induced agranulocytosis is rare but may cause fatal complications in patients with thyrotoxicosis during treatment with thionamide-derived drugs. From our previous experience, we note that 2 of 11 such patients died in a 10-year retrospective study. METHODS We reviewed thirteen patients who developed agranulocytosis from(More)
The design of packet transmission mechanisms of video and voice over wireless networks generally utilizes the characteristics of real-time data to improve the network performance, the energy efficiency of mobile devices, and etc. Unfortunately, WLAN medium access control (MAC) layer does not distinguish real-time and data packets during MAC frame(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of blood sugar control by a short-course reinforcement program, consisting of using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for young adult type 1 diabetic patients. Twenty-six pump-naïve type 1 diabetic patients were successively enrolled in two years. (More)
