BACKGROUND This study was designed to investigate the effect of nesiritide, a recombinant B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), on plasma aldosterone and vascular remodelling following balloon-induced endothelial injuries to the iliac arteries. METHODS Twenty-four male New Zealand rabbits were divided into nesiritide (0.1mg/kg/day, sc, for 4 weeks, n=12) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the approach and efficacy of microsurgery for tuberculum sellae meningiomas. METHODS The clinical data of 56 patients with tuberculum sellae meningiomas treated at our department from 1991 - 2009 were analyzed retrospectively. There were 20 males and 36 females with an age range of 32 - 65 years old (mean: 46). All patients underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the utility of neuronavigation in the microsurgery for cerebral cavernous malformations. METHODS In a retrospective study, 47 patients with cavernous malformations were involved from January 1995 to December 2010. Fourteen cases admitted into hospital from January 1995 to December 2002 were treated without neuronavigation(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the method and efficacy of microsurgery for anterior clinoidal meningiomas. METHODS The clinical data of 53 patients with anterior clinoidal meningiomas treated from 1991-2009 were analyzed retrospectively. There were 15 males and 38 females. The age range was 33 - 65.5 years old (mean: 45.5). All patients underwent microsurgery(More)
OBJECTIVE To find a way to discriminate operative reason from anaesthesia reason for the changes of intraoperative transcranial magnetic motor evoked potentials (MEPs). METHODS In 26 patients under Etomidate/Fentanyl anesthesia from February 2001 to June 2004, MEPs elicited by transcranial magnetic stimulation were recorded from tibialis anterior muscles,(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the possibility of microneurosurgery techniques in the treatment of multisegmental intramedullary cervical spinal cord ependymomas. METHODS The clinical data of 26 cases of multisegmental intramedullary cervical spinal cord ependymomas patients was reviewed and analyzed. RESULTS There were 14 cases of cervical spinal cord(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the validity of intraoperative magnetic MEP (motor evoked potentials) monitoring in a spinal-cord-menaced surgery. METHODS 32 rabbits were employed in weight-drop spinal cord contusion model. After anesthetized with a combination of Ketamine and Droperidol the spinal cords were surgically exposed with the dura intact, and the(More)
Re-stenosis or remodeling of coronary and peripheral arteries remains a major complication following balloon-angioplasty or stenting. This study was designed to investigate the effect of nesiritide, a recombinant B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), on vascular remodeling following balloon-induced endothelial injuries. Twenty-eight male New Zealand rabbits(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the practicability and validity of transcranial magnetic motor evoked potential monitoring (TMS-MEP) during spinal surgery. METHODS From February 2001 to June 2004, 37 patients undergoing spinal surgery were involved, anaesthesia was maintained with volatile anesthetics in 11 operations and etomidate in 26. Analgesia was provided(More)
