Plasmid-mediated 16S rRNA methylases conferring high-level aminoglycoside resistance in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from two Taiwanese hospitals.
OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to investigate the occurrence of 16S rRNA methylases that confer high-level aminoglycoside resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli isolates fromExpand
Clinical significance and distribution of putative virulence markers of 116 consecutive clinical Aeromonas isolates in southern Taiwan.
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to elucidate the clinical manifestations of Aeromonas infections and the association of putative virulence genes with clinical invasiveness. METHODS 116Expand
Gamma Knife radiosurgery for facial nerve schwannomas: a multicenter study.
OBJECT Facial nerve schwannomas (FNSs) are rare intracranial tumors, and the optimal management of these tumors remains unclear. Resection can be undertaken, but the tumor's intimate association withExpand
Patients with head and neck cancers and associated postirradiated carotid blowout syndrome: endovascular therapeutic methods and outcomes.
PURPOSE This study retrospectively evaluated the technical and hemostatic outcomes of reconstructive and deconstructive endovascular management in patients with head and neck cancers associated withExpand
Fractal dimension analysis for quantifying cerebellar morphological change of multiple system atrophy of the cerebellar type (MSA-C)
This study aims to demonstrate that the morphological changes of cerebellar structure, specifically, the cerebellum white matter (CBGM and CBWM) from T1-weighted magnetic resonance images, can be quantified by three-dimensional fractal dimension (FD) analysis, which is a measure of complexity. Expand
Use of diffusion tensor imaging to identify similarities and differences between cerebellar and Parkinsonism forms of multiple system atrophy
IntroductionWe performed diffusion tensor imaging to determine if multiple system atrophy (MSA)-cerebellar (C) and MSA-Parkinsonism (P) show similar changes, as shown in pathologicalExpand
Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamases and Plasmid-Mediated AmpC Enzymes among Clinical Isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae from Seven Medical Centers in Taiwan
ABSTRACT Production of extended-spectrum β-lactamases and plasmid-mediated AmpC enzymes was investigated among 291 Escherichia coli and 282 Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates that showed decreasedExpand
Stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas involving the transverse-sigmoid sinus.
OBJECT The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of radiosurgery for the treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) located in the region of the transverse-sigmoid sinus. Expand
Gamma Knife surgery for cerebral arteriovenous malformations in children: a 13-year experience.
OBJECT Studies on the efficacy of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) radiosurgery have largely been conducted in the adult population. Clinically, the results may not always be applicable to pediatricExpand
Brainstem cavernous malformations: the role of Gamma Knife surgery.
OBJECT The authors retrospectively reviewed the efficacy and safety of Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in patients with brainstem cavernous malformations (CMs). The CMs had bled repeatedly and placed theExpand
