BACKGROUND Red blood cell distribution width (RDW), an automated measure of red blood cell size heterogeneity (e.g., anisocytosis) that is largely overlooked, is a newly recognized risk marker in patients with cardiovascular diseases, but its role in persistent viral infection has not been well-defined. The present study was designed to investigate the(More)
While using the isolated forearm technique, we wished to determine whether patients who did not respond to commands during general anaesthesia with a total intravenous technique (propofol and alfentanil with atracurium) had any evidence of post-operative explicit or implicit memory. Forty women undergoing major gynaecological surgery were randomized, in a(More)
BACKGROUND Old pelvis fractures are among the most challenging fractures to treat because of their complex anatomy, difficult-to-access surgical sites, and the relatively low incidence of such cases. Proper evaluation and surgical planning are necessary to achieve the pelvic ring symmetry and stable fixation of the fracture. The goal of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the ability of high-field (9.4 T) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to delineate porcine knee meniscal tissue structure and meniscal tears. MATERIALS AND METHODS Porcine knees were obtained from a local abattoir, and eight medial menisci with no visible defects were dissected. Lesions simulating longitudinal tears were created on(More)
An explicit finite element method was developed to predict the dynamic behavior of the contact mechanics for a hip implant under normal walking conditions. Two key parameters of mesh sensitivity and time steps were examined to balance the accuracy and computational cost. Both the maximum contact pressure and accumulated sliding distance showed good(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the therapeutic efficiency of hyaluronan tetrasaccharide (HA4) treatment after spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats and to investigate the underlying mechanism. Locomotor functional and electrophysiological evaluations revealed that the behavioral function of rats in the HA4-treated group was significantly improved(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the safe distance from the tip of the cannulated screw to the apex of the femoral head, and to avoid cutting out of the cannulated screws from the femoral head. METHODS From November 2007 to April 2008, the placement configuration of the cannulated screws in the femoral head on the anteroposterior (AP) and lateral view was(More)
Unrecognized joint penetration (UJP) by screw penetration through the articular surface undetectable on routine anteroposterior (AP) and lateral radiographs can cause serious complications. We have developed a geometric model to analyze UJP, and methods for the prevention of the problem. A Steinmetz Solid (SS) is the overlapping portion between two(More)
