The alteration of craniofacial structures has been associated with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). We hypothesised that: 1) a smaller mandible is a risk factor for OSA; and 2) the previously observed inferiorly positioned hyoid bone in apnoeics is associated with enlarged tongue volume. This is a case-control study using three-dimensional magnetic resonance(More)
7041 Background: Radiation pneumonitis is a potentially fatal complication in NSCLC patients treated with definitive radiotherapy. The ability to identify patients at risk for this complication would be of value to clinicians. The objective of this study was to identify significant predictors of grade 2 or higher radiation pneumonitis. METHODS Consecutive(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of lipid on ropivacaine-induced convulsion and LD50 in rats and compare with those of the traditional anticonvulsants midazolam and propofol. METHODS Protocol 1: A total of 120 SD rats (60 males, 60 females), weighing 200-300 g, were randomly assigned into 4 groups with equal males and females: lipid (L), midazolam (M) and(More)

6054 Background: Advanced head and neck cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (HN cSCC) carries a 30-40% risk of death by 2 years with standard therapies. Small molecular inhibitors of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) may have an impact. We evaluated gefitinib as an induction therapy in a high-risk patient (pt) group prior to definitive therapy to(More)
