To elucidate the location of motor entry points (MEPs) and intramuscular nerve endings of the hamstring muscles. We dissected 50 cadaveric lower extremities to identify the MEPs, where the nerve branch first pierced the muscle belly, and the proximal and distal limit points (PLPs and DLPs, respectively) of the terminal intramuscular nerve endings. These(More)
We report an infant who presented with clinical manifestations of incontinentia pigmenti (IP). Despite experiencing seizures in the early neonatal period, the patient had normal growth and development until recently. However, follow-up magnetic resonance imaging revealed sequential changes in white matter lesions. The pathogenesis of neurological(More)
Despite the various responses of human skin to female sex hormones, cellular and subcellular targets and the mechanisms of action of estrogen and progesterone in human skin are not well understood. The detection of estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) in the skin is of great importance to understand the effect of estrogen and progesterone.(More)
Background A wide range of response rates have been reported in HER2-positive gastric cancer (GC) patients treated with trastuzumab. Other HER2-targeted therapies for GC have yet to show efficacy in clinical trials. These findings raise question about the ability of standard HER2 diagnostics to accurately distinguish between GC patients who would and would(More)
The goal of this work was to analyze the outcome of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for patients with gallbladder cancer who underwent surgical resection and to identify the prognostic factors for these patients. Between August 1989 and November 2006, 47 patients with gallbladder cancer underwent surgical resection followed by adjuvant radiotherapy. There were(More)
In non-osteoporotic postmenopausal women with breast cancer, aromatase inhibitors (AIs) negatively affected bone mineral density (BMD), lumbar spine trabecular bone score (TBS) as a bone microarchitecture index, and hip geometry as a bone macroarchitecture index. AIs increase the risk of fracture in patients with breast cancer. Therefore, we aimed to(More)
The purpose of this research was to analyze the relationship between dose–volumetric parameters and the development of diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients treated with chemoradiotherapy (CRT) following curative resection for upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. Medical records of patients who underwent postoperative CRT following curative resection, either(More)
Dual-energy carbon implantation (1310/cm at 150 and at 220 keV! was performed on 260-nm-thick undoped metastable pseudomorphic Si~100!/ Ge0.08Si0.92 with a 450-nm-thick SiO2 capping layer, at either room temperature or at 100 °C. After removal of the SiO2 the samples were measured using backscattering/channeling spectrometry and double-crystal x-ray(More)
