BACKGROUND Hepatocyte apoptosis is a severe form of cell death after hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury (HIRI), and its relief is an important issue in liver transplantation. Hypoxic preconditioning (HP) is considered to have protective effects on HIRI. This study was designed to explore the impact of HP on apoptosis and its possible mechanism during(More)
BACKGROUND miR-20b has been shown to be aberrantly expressed in several tumor types. However, the clinical significance of miR-20b in the prognosis of patients with gastric cancer (GC) is poorly understood, and the exact role of miR-20b in GC remains unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS The expression of miR-20b was detected in 102 patients with GC by a SYBR(More)

The aim of the current study was to investigate whether intestinal ischemic preconditioning (IP) reduces damage to the liver during hepatic ischemia reperfusion (IR). Sprague Dawley rats were used to model liver IR injury, and were divided into the sham operation group (SO), IR group and IP group. The results indicated that IR significantly increased Bax,(More)
Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) and total extraperitoneal (TEP) are the two types of laparoscopic repair of the inguinal hernia. The main advantages of laparoscopic repair, as compared to open repair, are a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery to normal activities. However, we cannot be overlooked or neglected the complication of laparoscopic(More)
