Hyaluronate-hydroxyethyl acrylate blend hydrogels which have a wide range of composition and characteristics were investigated. Glycidyl methacrylate derivatized hyaluronate (GMA-HA) were synthesized by coupling GMA to hyaluronate (HA) in the presence of a photoinduced initiator for polymerization. By copolymerizing radically GMA-HA and hydroxyethyl(More)

Three patients with thoracic myelopathy were operated on using a modified surgical approach, anterior decompression of the thoracic cord through the posterior approach. The usefulness of and indication for this approach were discussed. Operative technique is as follows. In the prone position, laminae are removed widely enough to include the medial half of(More)
The protective effect of a large decompressive craniectomy against delayed ischemic neurological deficits (DIND) was evaluated in patients operated on after subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm. In 54 cases, a large decompressive craniectomy was performed (Group D), and 41 patients underwent conventional craniotomy (Group ND). Transient DIND(More)
