BACKGROUND Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HIBI) after cardiopulmonary resuscitation is one of the most devastating neurological conditions that causing the impaired consciousness. However, there were few studies investigated the changes of brain metabolism in patients with vegetative state (VS) after post-resuscitated HIBI. This study aimed to analyze the(More)
PURPOSE This study was aimed to evaluate the brain metabolism in patients with subcortical aphasia after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and the relationship between the severity of aphasia and regional brain metabolism, by using statistical mapping analysis of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (F-18 FDG PET) images. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcomes of medial branch block in facet joint pain for osteoporotic compression fracture and utilize multiple regression, the relationship between their impact on treatment outcome and other factor, such as the radiologic finding, clinical parameters was analyze. METHODS Fifty-three patients with axial back pain from(More)
BACKGROUND Permanent vegetative state is defined as the impaired level of consciousness longer than 12 months after traumatic causes and 3 months after non-traumatic causes of brain injury. Although many studies assessed the cerebral metabolism in patients with acute and persistent vegetative state after brain injury, few studies investigated the cerebral(More)
The isolated idiopathic finger flexor tenosynovitis is a rare condition, related to diversed etiologies. The traditional treatment of flexor tenosynovitis includes medications and injection of steroids. If the conservative treatment is not effective, surgical management is usually recommended. And alcohol installations have been rarely performed. We are(More)
The mechanical stability of austenite in steels which rely on transformation–induced plasticity is usually attributed to its chemical composition, size and shape. We demonstrate here that another factor, the partitioning of strain between phases with different mechanical properties, can dramatically influence the stability. Many modern steels rely on a(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between a number of clinically relevant variables and sonographic imaging data in respect to the level of impairment experienced in the affected and unaffected shoulders of hemiplegic stroke patients. METHOD Fifty-one hemiplegic stroke patients (32 males, 19 females; 29 right-sided hemiplegics, 22 left-sided(More)
Bruxism is a diurnal or nocturnal parafunctional activity that includes tooth clenching, bracing, gnashing, and grinding. The dopaminergic system seems to be the key pathophysiology of bruxism and diminution of dopaminergic transmission at the prefrontal cortex seems to induce it. We report two patients with diurnal bruxism in whom a bilateral frontal lobe(More)
The mechanical properties of engineering materials are key for ensuring safety and reliability. However, the plastic deformation of BMGs is confined to narrow regions in shear bands, which usually result in limited ductilities and catastrophic failures at low homologous temperatures. The quasi-brittle failure and lack of tensile ductility undercut the(More)
We report the mechanistic explanation of the variation in Lüders strain in fine-grained transformation-induced plasticity assisted steel. The austenite stability is demonstrated to have a profound influence on the Lüders strain. Furthermore, it is shown unambiguously using a thermodynamic analysis that the transformation of austenite is strain-induced. The(More)
