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)
PURPOSE 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. METHODS We reviewed(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)
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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND We describe a case of renal carcinoid tumor with liver metastasis followed up postoperatively for 9 years. CASE PRESENTATION A 33-year-old man presented with left flank dull ache. On the abdominal computed tomography, a solid renal mass in the upper portion of the left kidney was detected. The patient had no other abnormal findings, such as(More)
Establishment of index system plays a crucial role in the course of uncertain information system evaluation. However, there is not a quantitative means on the problem of constructing the index system for uncertain information system. In order to solve these problems, a novel synthetic algorithm is put forward based on fuzzy set theory and grey relation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate clinical characteristics and pathological changes of tissue surrounding prosthesis after hip and knee arthroplasty. METHODS A total of 67 patients receiving hip and knee arthroplasty were included in the study and pathological changes of the revision specimens were evaluated by microscopic examination. RESULTS Of 67 patients,(More)
