OBJECTIVE To evaluate the anatomic features of a modified temporal-occipital transtentorial transpetrosal-ridge approach versus the conventional approach for surgery of petroclival tumors. METHODS The conventional transpetrosal presigmoid approach or the modified temporal-occipital transtentorial transpetrosal-ridge approach was performed on different(More)
This article represents the first attempt to perform a pooled analysis about remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) in reduction of acute kidney injury (AKI) of adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). A systematic search was performed using PubMed (1966-5 January 2016), the Cochrane Library (1996-5 January 2016), the(More)
OBJECTIVES Chinese county hospitals have been excessively enlarging their scale during the healthcare reform since 2009. The purpose of this paper is to examine the technical efficiency and productivity of county hospitals during the reform process, and to determine whether, and how, efficiency is affected by various factors. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS 114(More)
A comparative analysis of gene expression profiles between early and advanced carotid atherosclerotic plaque was performed to identify key genes and pathways involved in the progression of carotid atherosclerotic plaque. Gene expression data set GSE28829 was downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus, including 13 early and 16 advanced atherosclerotic plaque(More)
In Rechargeable Wireless Sensor Networks (R-WSNs), in order to achieve the maximum data collection rate it is critical that sensors operate in very low duty cycles because of the sporadic availability of energy. A sensor has to stay in a dormant state in most of the time in order to recharge the battery and use the energy prudently. In addition, a sensor(More)
OBJECTIVE Township hospitals (THs) are important components of the three-tier rural healthcare system of China. However, the efficiency and productivity of THs have been questioned since the healthcare reform was implemented in 2009. The objective of this study is to analyse the efficiency and productivity changes in THs before and after the reform process.(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o In this paper, a routing protocol for k-anycast communication based upon the anycast tree scheme is proposed for wireless sensor networks. Multiple-metrics are utilized for instructing the route discovery. A source initiates to create a spanning tree reaching any one sink with source node as the root. Subsequently, we introduce three(More)
