This study aims to investigate clinical effects of protruding after percutaneous vertebral plasty (PKP holds) for treatment of chronic painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (CPOVCFs), and assess its safety and effectiveness. One hundred and eighteen CPOVCFs patients were included, and analyzed and followed up therapeutic effects of PKP holds.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate carotid artery hemodynamics and blood flow involving external carotid artery (ECA) and internal carotid artery (ICA) patency in patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA). METHODS The common carotid artery (CCA), ECA, ICA, and vertebral artery (VA) were examined in 19 patients with TA involving ECA and ICA(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to analyze factors related to display of the twinkling artifact by a phantom. METHODS An in vitro phantom made of sandpaper was designed to mimic rough physiologic surfaces prone to generating the twinkling artifact. Sandpaper strips embedded in a plastic box were scanned through a water path under different(More)
This study is to investigate the role of three-dimensional image navigation system for surgical treatment of odontoid fracture. A total of 21 patients were enrolled in this study. The anterior cervical hollow screw fixation was performed for treatment of acute odontoid fracture under monitoring of isocentric C-arm three-dimensional navigation system (Iso-C(More)
OBJECTIVE This study is to investigate the complications and preventive measures of bone cement in percutaneous kyphoplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 134 cases of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture patients treated with percutaneous kyphoplasty, which involved 182(More)
A 58-year-old female and an 18-year-old male patient had progressive spastic quadriparesis of 10 years and 6 months duration, respectively. Proatlas segmentation malformation (PSM) was confirmed using three-dimensional (3D) reconstructive CT scans and MRI. Surgical procedures in one patient involved anterior decompression via a transoropharyngeal approach,(More)
This study is to investigate the frequencies of T-helper (Th)22, Th17 and Th1 cells and the levels of related cytokines in subchondral bone marrow in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Bone marrow and peripheral blood samples were collected from RA, osteoarthritis (OA) patients and healthy controls. The frequencies of Th22, Th17, and Th1 cells were(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study is to investigate the profiles of Th17, Th1 and Treg cells in bone marrow of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Flow cytometry was used to analyze the frequencies of Th17, Th1 and Treg cells in paired peripheral blood and bone marrow of 26 RA patients and 11 osteoarthritis (OA) patients, as well as 10 healthy(More)
This study is to investigate the clinical application of percutaneous vertebral puncture biopsy and MRI in diagnosis of malignant vertebral fractures. A total of 46 patients were enrolled in this study. Percutaneous kyphoplasty was performed for each patient. The coaxial puncture biopsies in broken spines were conducted. The pathological results were(More)
The effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at APE1 have been investigated in several types of cancer. However, no reports of the association of APE1 polymorphisms with osteosarcoma (OS) have been published. The present study was designed to determine whether APE1 polymorphisms (rs1130409, rs1760944, rs1760941, rs2275008, rs17111750) are(More)
