BACKGROUND A growing body of evidence has disclosed that allergic rhinitis (AR) is a systemic inflammatory disease. Inflammatory mediators and cells involved in AR have also been reported to be implicated in the process of atherosclerosis, which is relevant to the occurrence of erectile dysfunction (ED). Our objective was to explore the relationship between(More)
Laparoscopy under total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) with spontaneous respiration is a commonly encountered procedure in ambulatory gynecologic surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of TIVA using propofol and ketamine, compared with endotracheal inhalational general anesthesia (EIGA) for ambulatory gynecologic laparoscopy.(More)
We construct a microscopic hyperspectral imaging system to distinguish between normal and cancerous gastric cells. We study common transmission-spectra features that only emerge when the samples are dyed with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain. Subsequently, we classify the obtained visible-range transmission spectra of the samples into three zones. Distinct(More)
As an important wide band-gap II-VI semiconductor, ZnSe has attracted much attention for its various applications in photo-electronic devices such as blue light-emitting diodes and blue-green diode lasers. Mn-doped ZnSe is an excellent quantum dot material. The electronic structures of the sphalerite ZnSe and ZnSe:Mn were calculated using the Vienna ab(More)
This paper explores the satellite shield attitude planning for low observable satellites equipped with signature suppression shields. The on-orbit satellite's operational effectiveness and survivability are coupled with its radar cross section (RCS) and laser cross section (LCS) in threat directions, which are determined by the shield's attitude. This paper(More)
Second-degree atrioventricular (AV) block had not been reported as an early manifestation of adult systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). An 18-year-old woman of SLE presented with asymptomatic second-degree AV block with 2:1 conduction block on electrocardiogram (ECG) during admission. Serologic tests were negative for anti-Sjögren's syndrome A (anti-SS-A/Ro)(More)
OBJECTIVE: To expose the retroperitoneal presacral space during laparoscopic abdominosacrocolpopexy surgery without utilizing a separate laparoscopic port. DESCRIPTION: Several tools exist that will retract the rectosigmoid during laparoscopic abdominosacrocolpopexy (LASCP), such as the “rake” (Fan retractor, Marina Medical; Hollywood, FL), and the “snake”(More)
