OBJECTIVES To investigate whether the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) from diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) could help improve the prediction of insignificant prostate cancer in candidates for active surveillance (AS). METHODS Enrolled in this retrospective study were 287 AS candidates who underwent DW-MRI before radical(More)
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS We evaluated the efficacy of transurethral injection (TUI) for the treatment of recurrent or persistent stress urinary incontinence after mid-urethral sling (MUS) procedures. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted among 23 women who had undergone TUI for failed MUS using bulking agents, Macroplastique® and Durasphere®. The(More)
Currently there is no neuroprotective or neurorestorative therapy for Parkinson's disease. Here we report that transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) on astrocytes mediates endogenous production of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), which prevents the active degeneration of dopamine neurons and leads to behavioural recovery through CNTF receptor(More)
Calpains are a family of calcium-dependent cysteine proteases that are ubiquitously expressed in mammals and play critical roles in neuronal death by catalyzing substrate proteolysis. Here, we developed two-dimensional gel electrophoresis-based protease proteomics to identify putative calpain substrates. To accomplish this, cellular lysates from neuronal(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of endoscopic subureteral injection (ESI) in adults with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) associated with decreased bladder compliance (D-BC). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 46 consecutive patients who underwent ESI for VUR at a single tertiary academic center. Fourteen patients (17 ureter units)(More)
A hyperactivated depressor septi nasi is an important factor contributing to nasal tip drooping. Although many studies have examined this, its treatment remains controversial. This study presents a surgical intervention based on an anatomic study.Ten fresh cadavers with large noses were used for the anatomic study. Between April 2008 and September 2010, 20(More)
SUMMARY Performing secondary rhinoplasty in patients who underwent primary rhinoplasty using a silicone implant is difficult due to thinning of nasal skin and formation of a capsule. Excess capsule formation can cause capsular contracture, resulting in short nose deformity or implant deviation, migration, or implant demarcation. Revision rhinoplasty using a(More)
Recently, in Korea, the septal extension graft from the septum or rib has become a common method of correcting a small or short nose. The success rate of this method has led to the blind faith that it provides superior tip projection and definition, and to the failure to notice its weaknesses. Even if there is a sufficient amount of cartilage, improper(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship characteristics of women in interracial same-sex relationships with respect to their current level of stress, internalized homophobia, perceived relationship equality, relationship satisfaction, and social support. Four groups were compared according to their current type of race relationship (ethnic(More)
