BACKGROUND In recent decade, laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) has been introduced to treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC). Previous meta-analyses included the randomized controlled trial (RCT) apparently contaminated with advanced gastric cancer. Besides, more RCTs enrolling the predictive EGC are available. The present meta-analysis was(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphoscintigraphy is widely used to image the lymphatic system. The aim of this study was to compare lymphoscintigraphy and dynamic magnetic resonance lymphangiography (MRL) in the investigation of extremity lymphoedema. METHODS Sixteen patients with primary extremity lymphoedema and two with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome with lymphoedema were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the impact of transthoracic resection on long-term survival of patients with GEJ cancer and to compare the postoperative morbidity and mortality of patients undergoing transthoracic resection with those of patients who were not undergoing transthoracic resection.

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as new and important regulators of pathological processes including tumour development. In this study, we demonstrated that differentiation antagonizing non-protein coding RNA (DANCR) was up-regulated in lung adenocarcinoma (ADC) and that the knockdown of DANCR inhibited tumour cell proliferation, migration and(More)
The main cause of protein losing enteropathy (PLE) in children is intestinal lymphangiectasia. PLE is commonly diagnosed with radiotracer scintigraphy. We report the use of magnetic resonant imaging in diagnosis of a child with primary PLE. MRI clearly revealed abnormality in intestine and mesentery and dilated thoracic duct and mesenteric lymphatic as well(More)
