BACKGROUND It has been reported that polymorphisms in the estrogen receptor (ER)-alpha gene (ESR1) may be associated with reproductive patterns of women. This study was performed to investigate whether the genetic polymorphisms of the ER-alpha gene are associated with idiopathic premature ovarian failure (POF) in a Korean population. METHODS The subjects(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous injection of bone cement (acrylic cement) during percutaneous kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty can cause symptomatic or asymptomatic complications due to leakage, extravasation or vascular migration of cement. PURPOSE To investigate and to compare the incidence and site of local leakage or complications of bone cement after(More)
To evaluate the association between genetic polymorphism of GSTM1, GSTT1 and development of bladder cancer, a hospital-based case-control study was conducted in South Korea. The study population consisted of 232 histologically confirmed male bladder cancer cases and 165 male controls enrolled from urology departments with no previous history of cancer or(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to compare clinical features and computed tomography (CT) findings of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in lower lobe basal segments and upper lobe apical or apicoposterior segments. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical records and chest CT scans of 986 adults who were diagnosed with active pulmonary TB. Active pulmonary TB(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate 5 years results of percutaneous needle aspiration biopsy (PCNAB) for lung lesions and usefulness of the reaspiration or rebiopsy of lung lesions (repeat PCNAB). MATERIALS AND METHODS Six hundred and fifteen cases of PCNAB (591 initial PCNAB and 24 repeat PCNAB) performed under the CT or fluoroscopy guidance in 591 patients was(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that variations in the inhibin α gene (INHA) may affect the ovarian function of women. This study was performed to investigate whether the genetic polymorphisms of the INHA gene are associated with idiopathic premature ovarian failure (POF) in a Korean population. METHODS The subjects consisted of 159 idiopathic POF(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between whole body vibration (WBV) induced helicopter flights and degenerative changes of the cervical and lumbar spine. METHODS We examined 186 helicopter pilots who were exposed to WBV and 94 military clerical workers at a military hospital. Questionnaires and interviews were completed for 164 of the 186 pilots(More)
BACKGROUND Most patients whose lung cancers are resected have a local or distant recurrence, as determined postoperatively, or show residual or local disease at the time of autopsy. There are few reports that have described a relationship between tumor recurrence and variable factors such as stage, pathology, surgical method, and mode of recurrence. (More)
BACKGROUND Swine-origin influenza A (H1N1) virus (S-OIV) infection and scrub typhus, also known as tsutsugamushi disease can manifest as acute respiratory illnesses, particularly during the late fall or early winter, with similar radiographic findings, such as a predominance of ground-glass opacity (GGO). PURPOSE To differentiate S-OIV infection from(More)
