OBJECTIVE For patients with giant or dissecting aneurysm, multimodal treatment consisting extracranial-intracranial bypass surgery plus clip or coil for parent artery occlusion may be necessary. In this study, the safety and efficacy of multimodal treatment in 15 patients with complex aneurysms were evaluated retrospectively. METHODS From January 1995 to(More)
BACKGROUND Prone positioning for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has no impact on mortality despite significant improvements in oxygenation. However, a recent trial demonstrated reduced mortality rates in the prone position for severe ARDS. We evaluated effects of prone position duration and protective lung strategies on mortality rates in ARDS.(More)
The detection of hemodynamically significant stenosis is important because ischemia-guided revascularization improves overall patient outcomes. Fractional flow reserve (FFR), which is measured during invasive coronary angiography, is regarded as the gold standard for determining hemodynamically significant coronary stenosis. Although coronary computed(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD) causes multisystemic vasculitis but infrequently manifests with deep neck infections, such as a peritonsillar abscess, peritonsillar or deep neck cellulitis, suppurative parapharyngeal infection, or retropharyngeal abscess. As its etiology is still unknown, the diagnosis is usually made based on typical symptoms. The differential(More)
Pemetrexed is widely used for the treatment of advanced non-squamous non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, factors that can predict the benefits of pemetrexed therapy have not yet been defined. We compared the clinical and molecule pathological characteristics of good and poor responders among a cohort of 1,848 non-squamous NSCLC patients who had(More)
In this study, we investigate power generation by reverse electrodialysis in a dense silica membrane that is between two NaCl solutions with various combinations of concentrations. Each silica membrane is fabricated by depositing a silica layer on a porous alumina substrate via chemical vapor deposition. The measured potential-current (V-I) characteristics(More)
Anti-leukotriene (anti-LT) agents have been not yet established for effectiveness in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess whether anti-LT agents have the responsiveness for COPD patients. MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register, and Korea Med were searched for relevant(More)
Vertical tubes with inverted triangular fins under natural convection are investigated experimentally. The thermal resistances of tubes with inverted triangular fins are measured for various fin numbers, fin heights, and heat inputs. A Nusselt number correlation that best predicts the measured thermal resistances is proposed. The proposed correlation is(More)
To describe the incidence and CT features of a rare branching pattern of the pulmonary artery, the Arteria praebronchialis (AP): According to the initial description, the AP originates as the first branch of the left pulmonary artery, crosses the front of the left mainstem bronchus and then runs along the mediastinal margin as it gives off branches to one(More)
