BACKGROUND Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been reported to be a common cause of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). However, only a few studies have investigated BPPV after TBI. The aim of this study was to identify the clinical characteristics of BPPV after TBI and to determine whether there are clinical differences between BPPV after TBI and(More)
BACKGROUND Shivering associated with spinal anesthesia is uncomfortable and may interfere with monitoring. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of ramosetron, a serotonin-3 receptor antagonist, on the prevention of shivering during spinal anesthesia. METHODS We enrolled 52 patients who were ASA I or II and who had undergone knee arthroscopy(More)
Primary squamous cell carcinomas arising from the thyroid gland (SCCTh) is extremely rare diseases, which have never been fully studied. Thus, we performed a systematic review and individual participant data meta-analysis of published SCCTh cases, to understand the clinical characteristics and to identify the prognostic factors of primary SCCTh.

X-Linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP)-associated factor-1 (XAF1) antagonizes XIAP-mediated caspase inhibition. XAF1 also serves as a tumor-suppressor gene, and loss of XAF1 expression correlates with tumor progression. This study investigated whether XAF1 missense single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with the development of papillary(More)
To avoid the occurrence of fatal complications of blood transfusion, several tests are implemented before transfusion. The tests include ABO typing, Rh typing, cross-matching test and blood antibody screening test, and in usual they are completed before transfusion.
