PURPOSE The purpose of this project was to study the effect of chitosan bead encapsulating calcium sulfate, which provides a sustained release of chitosan and calcium sulfate after implantation, on early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis of a dog model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five dogs were used for this study. An external distraction(More)
PURPOSE This study was aimed to describe a vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) outbreak across three intensive care units (ICUs) of a Korean hospital from September 2006 to January 2007 and the subsequent control strategies. MATERIALS AND METHODS We simultaneously implemented multifaceted interventions to control the outbreak, including establishing a(More)
The purpose of this project was to study the effect of chitosan microsphere-encapsulated human growth hormone, which causes sustained release of chitosan and human growth hormone after implantation on early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis of a canine model. Forty-eight dogs were used for this study. An external distraction device was applied(More)
The purpose of this experiment was to study the effects of chitosan, calcium sulfate, and calcium sulfate-chitosan composite pellet on the osteogenesis of defective tibia in rabbits. Eighty New Zealand white rabbits, each weighing approximately 3 to 3.5 kg, were used for this study. A 1-cm ostectomy was made on the middle of the tibia of each rabbit with(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of hyaluronidase (HAase) on lymphedema using an acute mouse tail lymphedema model. Six-week-old mice served to produce acute lymphedema and were then either treated with HAase injection or used as operative controls. An additional group of unmanipulated normal mice was used for comparison. Tail volumes(More)
BACKGROUND Extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii are a threat to hospitalized patients. We evaluated the effects of antimicrobial combinations on XDR P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii isolates. METHODS P. aeruginosa and A. baumannii isolates, which were resistant to all antibiotics except colistin (CL), were(More)
