OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to review and analyze ureteral injuries incidental to gynecologic surgery in a community hospital. STUDY DESIGN During the study period from Jan. 1, 1983, through Dec. 31, 1992, all patient records in which ureteral injury resulted from gynecologic surgery were reviewed. The operative procedure, pathologic result, location of(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression through degradation and/or translational repression of target mRNAs. Dysregulations in the miRNA machinery may be involved in carcinogenesis of colorectal cancer (CRC). The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the DiGeorge syndrome critical region gene 8 (DGCR8) and argonaute 2 (AGO2) mRNA expression in(More)
OBJECTIVES Hypertension is commonly associated with an endothelial dysfunction that may contribute to the rise in blood pressure. Little information has been available so far on the role of endothelium-derived nitric oxide(EDNO) in renin-dependent, 2-kidney, 1 clip(2KIC) hypertension. The present study was aimed to determine a role for EDNO in the(More)
This paper presents an error resilient decoding technique based on the error detection and DCT coeecients recovery for the randomly impaired MPEG-2 bit stream. First, to simulate a more realistic and severe environment, we do not rely on the network support of the packet transport/adaptation protocol for error detection. Therefore, the macroblocks corrupted(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) is emerging as an alternative to laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) for the treatment of small renal tumors. We compare the results of LPN and RAPN performed by a single surgeon. METHODS Data from 100 consecutive patients who underwent LPN (n=52) or RAPN (n=48) performed by a single(More)
