Haematopoietic stem cells do not transdifferentiate into cardiac myocytes in myocardial infarcts
The mammalian heart has a very limited regenerative capacity and, hence, heals by scar formation. Recent reports suggest that haematopoietic stem cells can transdifferentiate into unexpectedExpand

Myocyte and myogenic stem cell transplantation in the heart.
Cellular transplantation is emerging as a potential mechanism with which to augment myocyte number in diseased hearts. To date a number of cell types have been shown to successfully engraft into theExpand

A Systematic Review of Acquired Uterine Arteriovenous Malformations: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Transcatheter Treatment
Objective An acquired uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare cause of vaginal bleeding and, although hysterectomy is the definitive therapy, transcatheter embolization (TCE) provides anExpand

Expression of a mutant p193/CUL7 molecule confers resistance to MG132- and etoposide-induced apoptosis independent of p53 or Parc binding.
p193/CUL7 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase initially identified as an SV40 Large T Antigen binding protein. Expression of a dominant interfering variant of mouse p193/CUL7 (designated 1152stop) conferredExpand

Stem cell therapy for ischemic heart disease.
Recent experimental and clinical observations have suggested that cell transplantation could be of therapeutic value for the treatment of heart disease. This approach was based on the idea thatExpand

Transarterial Chemoembolization for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors With Massive Hepatic Tumor Burden: Is the Benefit Worth the Risk?
BackgroundNeuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have a propensity to metastasize to the liver, often resulting in massive tumor burden and hepatic dysfunction. While transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) isExpand

Symptomatic Perforation of a Günther Tulip Inferior Vena Cava Filter With Subsequent Strut Fracture and Pulmonary Embolization
Long-dwelling retrievable inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) are associated with adverse events, including migration, thrombosis, penetration, fracture, and embolization. Despite the safety andExpand

Elevated Alkaline Phosphatase Prior to Transarterial Chemoembolization for Neuroendocrine Tumors Predicts Worse Outcomes
IntroductionWe hypothesized that an elevated preoperative alkaline phosphatase (AP) predicted worse outcomes for patients undergoing transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) for neuroendocrine tumorExpand
