BACKGROUND Little is known about the effects of low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on dysmnesia and the impact of brain nucleotide neurotrophic factor (BDNF) Val66Met single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). This study investigated the impact of low-frequency rTMS on post-stroke dysmnesia and the impact of BDNF Val66Met SNP. (More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of epidermal growth factor receptor and c-erbB-2 oncoprotein in trophoblast populations of placenta accreta. STUDY DESIGN Paraffin sections of 43 placental specimens with (cases) and 43 without (controls) placenta accreta were studied immunohistochemically for epidermal growth factor(More)
We present a 6-year-old Chinese boy with Alagille syndrome and an interstitial 20p deletion, with a karyotype of 46,XY,der(20)dir ins(7;20)(q11.23;p11.23p12.2 or p12.2p13)mat. He had a peculiar face and suffered from congenital heart disease, growth retardation, severe cholestasis, hepatosplenomegaly, and impaired renal function. The karyotype of his mother(More)
We report a case of a woman in whom uterine arterial embolization was performed using absorbable gelfoam particles for control of refractory postpartum hemorrhage. Ten days after delivery, the woman experienced high fever and low abdominal pain. Histologic findings after hysterectomy were consistent with uterine necrosis and acute suppurative myometritis.
The authors present the first case of a pure osteosarcoma arising in a long-standing uterine leiomyoma along with a literature review of all heterologous sarcomas arising in uterine leiomyoma. Most cases present with abnormal vaginal bleeding and symptoms related to a rapidly enlarged pelvic mass in postmenopausal women with a long-standing history of(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the feasibility of measuring multiple circulating cytokines by protein chips in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS Circulating cytokines were determined by protein chips in 50 control cases and 104 ACS cases of unstable angina pectoris (UA, n = 50) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI, n = 54) cases. RESULTS The(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the differential expression of angiopoietin-1, angiopoietin-2, and Tie receptors (Tie-1 and Tie-2) in placentas from pregnancies complicated by placenta accreta. STUDY DESIGN Paraffin sections of 46 placental specimens with (cases) and 46 without (controls) placenta accreta were studied(More)
