To compare the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in contemporaneous groups of patients undergoing hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (HALRN) or open radical nephrectomy (ORN) for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The clinical data of 20 cases receiving hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (the HALRN group) and 51 cases receiving open(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to irreversible neuronal loss and ultimately leads to paralysis. Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) have been demonstrated to be an effective approach to treat SCI. The present study was designed to investigate the role of BMSCs in rats with spinal cord injury and in oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) treated(More)
The author's impeller pump was further evaluated as a left ventricular assist device in calves. The longest survival was achieved in the last three calves for more than 6 weeks (62, 54, 46 days, respectively). The hemochemical measurements showed that no blood damage and no organ dysfunction occurred during the experiments. Termination of the experiments(More)
Objective: To investigate the effect of crocin on the progression and generalized seizure of temporal lobe epilepsy in mice. Methods: Hippocampus rapid kindling model was established in C57BL/6J mice. The effects of crocin on seizure stage, afterdischarge duration (ADD), number of stimulation in each stage and final state, the incidence of generalized(More)
The methods for evaluating left ventricular diastolic function completely and simply are lacking in our country at present. To solve this problem, we presents in this paper a novel method, which is developed according to certain algorithms and mathematic models and is carried out by a MATLAB program. This method mainly obtains dP/dt loops, and calculates(More)
Establishment and maintenance of the polar site are important for root hair tip growth. We previously reported that Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) MICROTUBULE-ASSOCIATED PROTEIN18 (MAP18) functions in controlling the direction of pollen tube growth and root hair elongation. Additionally, the Rop GTPase ROP2 was reported as a positive regulator of both(More)
The authors' impeller pump as a left ventricular or biventricular assist device was evaluated in animal experiments and clinical trial. Three calves survived over 6 weeks in left ventricular assist experiments and neither blood damage nor organ dysfunction of the animals was detected. In clinical trial, the pump supported both the greater and lesser(More)
A permanent impeller heart that could work for years was once an idea. However, now this idea is turning into reality through the use of the magnetically suspended motor. Recently, with our implantable pulsatile impeller pump, 3 left ventricular assisted calves survived for about 2 months (62, 54, and 46 days, respectively). The termination of the(More)
An impeller pump has been evaluated chronically in calves as a left ventricular assist device. In a group of 18 calves, three survived approx. 2 months (62, 54 and 46 days, respectively) while earlier calves survived less than 14 days. The termination of the experiments was due to bearing wear, which resulted in pump failure. The pump delivered nonpulsatile(More)
