PURPOSE The gold standard for the treatment of segmental nerve defect is an autogenous nerve graft. However, donor site morbidity is an inevitable complication. We substituted an autogenous nerve graft with an inside-out vein graft for the treatment of segmental sensory nerve defect and the clinical results were evaluated retrospectively. PATIENTS AND(More)
The chlorination of surface waters is known to form trihalomethanes. Therefore, chlorine dioxide (C1O2) is being considered as an alternative disinfectant. This study was designed to determine the effect of chlorine dioxide and its metabolites, chlorite (C1O-2) and chlorate (C1O-3), on rat fetuses exposed in utero. Female rats were administered C1O2 at 0,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was aimed to demonstrate the usefulness of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of meralgia paresthetica (MP). METHODS Clinical data, sensory nerve conduction study and sonographic findings of 23 patients with unilateral MP were analyzed retrospectively. Twelve healthy subjects were recruited for the optimal cut-off value for the(More)
Total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) and ankle arthrodesis (AA) are the main surgical treatment options for end-stage ankle arthritis. Although the superiority of each modality remains debated, there remains a lack of high-quality evidence-based studies, such as randomized controlled clinical trials, and meta-analyses of comparative studies. We performed a(More)
Monochloramine (NH2Cl) is under consideration as an alternative to chlorine as a disinfectant in public water supplies, to avoid trihalomethanes formation. This study was conducted to investigate the toxicity of NH2Cl (0, 1, 10, 100 mg/l) in drinking water. Glutathione (GSH) content in rat blood was decreased significantly after 4 mo treatment, and the(More)
Accurate assessment of acetabular morphology and its relationship to the femoral head is essential for planning a periacetabular osteotomy. We observed the acetabular coverage after virtual Bernese osteotomy using computer-aided technique. Three-dimensional computed tomography of 18 normal hips and 3 symptomatic dysplastic hips were analyzed. Through the(More)
The purpose of this study was to fabricate BMP-2-immobilized porous poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microspheres (PMS) modified with heparin for bone regeneration. A fluidic device was used to fabricate PMS and the fabricated PMS was modified with heparin-dopamine (Hep-DOPA). Bone morphogenic protein-2 (BMP-2) was immobilized on the heparinized PMS(More)
INTRODUCTION The orientation of acetabular component is influenced by pelvic tilt, body position and individual variation in pelvic parameters. Most post-operative adverse events may be attributed to malposition of the component in the functional position. There is evidence that orientation of the pelvis changes from the supine to standing position. Authors(More)
The aim of this study was to develop lactoferrin (LF)-impregnated porous poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microspheres (PMs) to induce osteogenic differentiation of rabbit adipose-derived stem cells (rADSCs). Porous PLGA PMs were fabricated by a fluidic device and their surfaces were modified with heparin-dopamine (Hep-DOPA). Then, LF (100μg, 500μg, and(More)
Chlorine interacts with organic materials in surface water, leading to the formation of trihalomethanes, that may be carcinogenic. Studies were conducted to investigate the pharmacodynamics and toxicity of chlorine (0, 1, 10, 100 mg 1(-1] in drinking water in rats. Blood glutathione (GSH) was significantly decreased after 6 months of treatment and this(More)
