Xmas is an extensible main-memory storage system for high-performance embedded database applications. Xmas not only provides the core functionality of DBMS, such as data persistence, crash recovery, and concurrency control, but also pursues an extensible architecture to meet the requirements from various application areas. One crucial aspect of such… (More)
Clival chordoma is a rare intracranial neoplasm located in the clivus with bony extension and destruction. It is difficult to resect completely and generally has a poor prognosis. However, intradural clival chordomas have been reported with good surgical outcomes. We present a rare case of intradural chordoma and a review of the literature.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES It is unclear which plaque component is related with long-term clinical outcomes in patients with coronary artery occlusive disease (CAOD). We assessed the relationship between plaque compositions and long-term clinical outcomes in those patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study subjects consisted of 339 consecutive patients (mean… (More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES We evaluated which plaque components are associated with long-term clinical events in patients who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study subjects consisted of 57 consecutive patients (mean age, 58.5±14.5 years; 45 males) who underwent primary PCI and a virtual… (More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The relationship between the positive remodeling (PR) of a coronary artery and plaque composition has been studied only in a relatively small number of study population or non-culprit lesion. We evaluated the association between coronary plaque composition and coronary artery remodeling in a relatively large number of culprit… (More)
A long double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-producing vector driven by fugu double U6 promotors, in which the two promoters were arranged in a head-to-head fashion, was newly constructed. To determine whether the DNA-vector-based long dsRNAs can induce sequence-specific RNA interference (RNAi), Epithelioma papulosum cyprini (EPC) cells and chinook salmon embryonic… (More)
Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum (SCACP) is a rare form of adenocarcinoma of the skin. This is the malignant counterpart of syringocystadenoma papilliferum (SCAP) and usually develops on the scalp in a long-standing lesion identified clinically as SCAP. We describe a 65-yr-old Korean man with a nodule on the right supra-pubic area with a 2-yr… (More)
The bladder is involved in less than 4% of inguinal hernias. Inguinoscrotal bladder hernias are difficult to diagnose, and less than 7% are diagnosed preoperatively. Inguinoscrotal bladder hernias are usually asymptomatic. However, they can result in significant complications, such as bladder necrosis or acute renal failure. Accurate diagnosis is crucial to… (More)
