The objective of this study was to examine the characteristics of hidden blood loss and assess the effects of using a tourniquet on postoperative hidden loss in patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty. Eighty patients were randomised into two groups: one group underwent operation with a tourniquet and one without. Operating time, perioperative(More)
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo, parallel and controlled study, 80 patients with osteoarthritis who underwent unilateral TKA were randomly assigned to two groups: Trial Group, where patients received intra-articular intraoperative injection containing morphine, bupivacaine and betamethasone, and Control Group, where patients received normal saline as(More)
AIM Growing evidence suggest that the microRNA (miR)-23a/24-2/27a cluster may play a crucial role in mammary tumorigenesis and act as a novel class of oncogenes. Among these members, miR-27a has been reported to promote proliferation, migration and invasion in human osteosarcoma cells. The aim of this study was to detect the serum levels of miR-27a in(More)
Our objective was to compare the results of reconstruction of isolated chronic posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury using a four-strand hamstring graft (4SHG) and a LARS artificial ligament. Thirty-six patients were divided into a 4SHG group (n = 15) and a LARS group (n = 21). The minimum follow-up time was two years. The outcome measures used were(More)
Image Analysis, a complicated field still in the early stages of application to Pathology, has the capability of rendering major contributions to the diagnosis, prognosis, and management of malignancies of the breast. The present review summarizes the main problems and the general approach to the use of this technique for quantitating immunohistochemical(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the effects of patellar resurfacing on patellofemoral joint contact pressure and contact area in total knee arthroplasty. We tested seven fresh-frozen cadaveric knees using a custom knee jig which permits the simulation of physiologic quadriceps loading. Before patellar resurfacing, the mean peak contact pressure(More)
To evaluate a new fixation technique for patellar fracture using patella rings. A total of 75 patients (average age of 51.3 years) with comminuted or transverse patellar fractures were treated by fixation with patella rings. The Böstman scores at the time of bone union and at 12 months postoperatively were recorded, as was the degree of pain on a visual(More)
To assess the efficacy of postoperative pain management and the concentration change of PGE-2 and IL-6 of joint fluid with parecoxib after postoperative total knee arthroplasty. In the study, 100 patients experiencing primary TKA were randomly divided into study group, receiving parecoxib sodium (40 mg) intravenously (IV) at the completion of surgery and(More)
Due to a blood supply shortage, articular cartilage has a limited capacity for self-healing once damaged. Articular chondrocytes, cartilage progenitor cells, embryonic stem cells, and mesenchymal stem cells are candidate cells for cartilage regeneration. Significant current attention is paid to improving chondrogenic differentiation capacity; unfortunately,(More)
Here we aimed to determine the therapeutic effect of allicin on ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and explore the mechanism(s) of action. AS mouse model was constructed by transferring the HLA-B2704 gene into Kunming mice and verified by RT-PCR and CT imaging. Verified AS mice were randomly divided into model group (n = 6) and allicin-treated groups (50, 100, and(More)
