Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a relatively rare, benign proliferation lesion of the synovium of large joints, but there is not much information available about the disease’s aetiology, clinical history, differential diagnosis, treatment, and long-term effects. We conducted a study to analyse these aspects of PVNS. We reviewed all clinical data(More)
In the present study, we examined the mechanisms of hydrogen-rich saline, a reported therapeutic antioxidant, in the treatment of acute spinal cord contusion injury. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were used to produce a standardized model of contuses spinal cord injury (125 kdyn force). Hydrogen-rich saline was injected intraperitoneally (5 ml/kg) immediately,(More)
Golgi phosphoprotein-3 (GOLPH3), an important protein in mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling, is overexpressed in and correlates with the pathological grade of glioma. However, the potential correlation between GOLPH3 and clinical outcome in patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) remains unknown. In this study, we examined GOLPH3 expression(More)
Angiocentric gliomas (AG) have only recently been described. We encountered a 25-year-old woman with AG who had a history of epilepsy for two years. MRI revealed that there was a solid tumor in the hippocampus. The tumor was totally removed. Histologically, the spindle tumor cells proliferated around small parenchymal vessels with perivascular(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the clinical data, MRI, pathological diagnosis, treatment and long-term effects of benign notochordal cell tumor (BNCT), a newly described novel spine tumor. METHODS We retrospectively studied 11 patients' clinical data of the above. RESULTS The ratio of males to females was 4:7, and the average age was 49.2 years (range, 18-74(More)
Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a rare benign proliferation lesion of the synovium of the joint, bursa, and the tendon sheath. We report here a case of PVNS in a 78-year-old woman 14 years after she underwent total arthroplasty of her right hip. Diffuse PVNS was detected in her right hip during surgery to replace her prosthesis, which had(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression and prognostic value of bone sialoprotein (BSP) in glioma patients. METHODS We determined the expression of BSP using real-time RT-PCR and immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays containing 15 normal brain and 270 glioma samples. Cumulative survival was calculated by the Kaplan-Meier method and analyzed by the(More)
BACKGROUND The T-helper (Th)1/Th2 imbalance has been demonstrated to be involved in chronic heart failure (CHF). We sought to determine whether atorvastatin exhibited any effect on CHF through modulating the Th1/Th2 response. METHODS AND RESULTS We measured serum concentrations of interleukin (IL)-12, -18, interferon (IFN)-gamma, IL-4, and IL-10 from 20(More)
