Fifteen cases of central hemangioma of the jaws in 14 patients are reported, and considerations in diagnosis and treatment are discussed. In the management of these tumors, diagnostic considerations are of paramount importance if associated risks are to be minimized while maximizing the chances for a successful outcome. A search of the literature suggests(More)
BACKGROUND To understand the influence of myocardial bridging (MB) on left ventricular (LV) function, myocardial function was studied in patients with MB of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) using three-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE). METHODS Left anterior descending coronary artery MB was diagnosed by coronary(More)
His354 and His358, two highly conserved histidines in Xenopus laevis (6-4) photolyase [equivalent to His401 and His405, in Dunaliella salina (6-4) photolyase], are critical for photoreactivation. They act as a base and an acid, respectively. However, the remaining high repair activity when the pH value is higher than the pKa of histidine suggests the(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may develop left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction. We aimed to study whether OSA patients have LV regional systolic dysfunction with myocardial deformation changes, despite a normal LV ejection fraction, using real-time 3D speckle-tracking echocardiography (Rt3D-STE).(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence and risk factors of postoperative delirium in patients post permanent pacemaker implantation. METHODS Patients underwent permanent pacemaker implantation in our department from September 2013 to February 2015 were included in this study. Delirium was measured by the confusion assessment method on the first three(More)
