Long-term potentiation (LTP) is typically studied using either continuous high-frequency stimulation or theta burst stimulation. Previous studies emphasized the physiological relevance of theta frequency; however, synchronized hippocampal activity occurs over a broader frequency range. We therefore tested burst stimulation at intervals from 100 msec to 20(More)
Good postoperative and excellent cosmetic results have been achieved with bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA) robotic thyroidectomy (RoT). This study was performed to analyze the surgical outcomes and evaluate the surgical completeness and safety of BABA RoT. Between February 2008 and February 2012, a total of 1026 cases of BABA RoT were performed. The(More)
Long-term potentiation (LTP) is often induced experimentally by continuous high-frequency afferent stimulation (HFS), typically at 100 Hz for 1 s. Induction of LTP requires postsynaptic depolarization and voltage-dependent calcium influx. Induction is more effective if the same number of stimuli are given as a series of short bursts rather than as(More)
Sleep is required for, and sleep loss impairs, normal hippocampal synaptic N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptor function and expression, hippocampal NMDA receptor-dependent synaptic plasticity, and hippocampal-dependent memory function. Although sleep is essential, the signals linking sleep to hippocampal function are not known. One potential(More)
Multiple signaling pathways involving protein kinase C (PKC) have been implicated in the development of cardiac hypertrophy. We observed that a putative PKC inhibitor, PICOT (PKC-Interacting Cousin Of Thioredoxin) was upregulated in response to hypertrophic stimuli both in vitro and in vivo. This suggested that PICOT may act as an endogenous negative(More)
BACKGROUND Uric acid (UA) is known to play a pathogenic role in chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, its effect in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has not yet been elucidated. We explored the prevalence of hyperuricaemia and the relationship between UA and residual renal function (RRF) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS The subjects of this(More)
Patterns of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in the medical intensive care unit (MICU) were analysed, and signals for detecting ADRs were developed from the analysis. A retrospective study was conducted in MICU wards at a tertiary care teaching hospital in Seoul, Korea. The areas included one general MICU and one cancer centre MICU. Two pharmacists evaluated(More)
OBJECTIVE This study is to investigate time course of symptom disappearance in patients whose spasm relieved completely after microvascular decompression (MVD). METHODS Of 115 patients with hemifacial spasm (HFS) who underwent MVD from April 2003 to December 2006, 89 patients who had no facial paralysis after operation and showed no spasm at last(More)
Bilateral axillo-breast approach (BABA) robotic thyroidectomy has shown excellent cosmetic and surgical outcomes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and initial outcome of this procedure in patients with Graves’ disease. From June 2008 to July 2001, a total of 30 patients with Graves’ disease were reviewed retrospectively.(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in the general population, but the corresponding effects in patients on dialysis have not been clearly defined. In this study, we prospectively investigated the effect of metabolic syndrome and its individual components on outcome in non-diabetic peritoneal dialysis (PD)(More)
