OBJECTIVE To investigate the risk of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) following stress hyperglycemia after hip fracture. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS From February 2007 to February 2012, we carried out a prospective observational analysis of 1,257 consecutive patients with no history of diabetes who suffered hip fractures. Fasting blood glucose (FBG) and(More)
BACKGROUND Previous risk score is not simple for predicting existence of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS). Our study aims to develop a simple score to predict ARAS in eastern people with ischemic heart disease. METHODS There were two data sources involved in this study. From the data source of patients with acute myocardial infarction, we(More)
BACKGROUND The plasma cystatin C concentration (PcyC) has been demonstrated to have prognostic value in acute coronary syndrome, but the study of PcyC in patients with borderline coronary lesions is limited. Moreover, the effects of atorvastatin and probucol on PcyC and the severity of coronary lesions are unknown. This study was to evaluate the effects of(More)
While the super fluorescence quenching capacity of graphene and graphene oxide (GO) has been extensively employed to develop fluorescent sensors, their own unique fluorescence and its potential for chemo-/biosensing have seldom been explored. Here we report a GO-based photoinduced charge transfer (PCT) label-free near-infrared (near-IR) fluorescent(More)
BACKGROUND Randomized studies have shown beneficial effects of drug-eluting stent (DES) in reducing the risk of repeated revascularization. Other studies have shown higher proportion of death, myocardial infarction (MI) and increased cost concerning DES. However the long term safety and effectiveness of DES have been questioned recently. METHODS To(More)
BACKGROUND Given the increasing number of patients who require dual antiplatelet (DAP) therapy and electrophysiological device (EPD) placement, perioperative antiplatelet management is a current challenge. In this study, we investigated the incidence of pocket hematoma formation after EPD placement in patients undergoing DAP therapy or an alternative(More)
PURPOSE To explore the vertical and horizontal proportions of the face and difference between the Han and Uygur normal adults in Xinjiang area. METHODS According to certain standards, the adult Han and Uygur college students in Urumqi City were randomly selected for this study. These students were divided into male and female groups. Frontal photographs(More)
The driving mechanism of the control rod of the nuclear reactor is the only moving part, and the hook grippers are the key parts for the driving mechanism. Being in the trial production stage for domestic, the hook grippers' geometry size and the surface geometrical morphology need to be tested out for making sure whether it has met the requirements of the(More)
BACKGROUND Adenosine phosphate-mediated platelet aggregation is a prognostic factor for major adverse cardiac events in patients who have undergone selective percutaneous coronary interventions. This study aimed to assess whether an adjusted loading dose of clopidogrel could more effectively inhibit platelet aggregation in patients undergoing selected(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the incidence and the predictors of upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage (UGH) in patients underwent percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). METHODS UGH occurred in 21 out of 2279 PCI patients (0.92%). The clinical characteristics, procedural and prognostic status of all UGH patients were analyzed. RESULTS The incidence of UGH was(More)
