BACKGROUND The high recurrence rate of hepatolithiasis, together with the high operative risk of hepatectomy for specifically located stones, has not been effectively settled until now. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of using chemical biliary duct embolization (CBDE) to achieve chemical hepatectomy in a(More)
OBJECTIVE Solid-state high-resolution manometry (HRM) is fast becoming the gold standard for studying pharyngeal and esophageal motility. However, very few studies have ever evaluated the effect of bolus volume on the physiology of swallowing using HRM. We aimed to determine the effect of bolus volume on pressure, duration and velocity of the hypopharynx as(More)
GOALS The objective of the current study was to examine the correlation between high-resolution manometric and videofluoroscopic measurements of the swallowing function. BACKGROUND In such cases in which manometric analysis is not feasible, it would be ideal if information regarding pressure during swallowing could be inferred from a videofluoroscopic(More)
This paper is focused on numerical investigation of subsonic flow separation over a NACA0012 airfoil with a 6° angle of attack and flow separation control with vortex generators. The numerical simulations of three cases including an uncontrolled baseline case, a controlled case with passive vortex generator, and a controlled case with active vortex(More)
It is highly unusual for a 20-cm retroperitoneal teratoma to present as a subhepatic abscess with septic shock in a postpartum woman. We present a case of a multilocular cystic teratoma densely adherent to adjacent viscera and vessels. Because of the complexity of the case and the clinical condition of the patient, a 2-stage operation was employed for this(More)
Theta burst stimulation (TBS) has emerged as a promising tool for the treatment of swallowing disorders; however, the short-term after-effects of brain activation induced by TBS remain unknown. Here, we measured the changes in spontaneous brain activation using the amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (ALFF) approach in subjects who underwent different(More)
Using a structural vector auto-regression (SVAR) model which contains four variables, the actual money supply, the real interest rate, the exchange rate and the real national income, to estimate the effect of china's monetary policy from 1995 to 2009. With the vector autoregressive analysis, Johansen Co-integration Test, Granger causality test and impulse(More)
