OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between the number of dissected lymph nodes (LNs) and the prognosis of patients with node-negative Siewert type ⅡAEG. METHODS 248 patients with Siewert type Ⅱ AEG treated in our hospital between January 1998 and December 2008 were retrospectively assessed. All cases underwent left transthoracic subtotal(More)
The purpose of this study was to use finite element analysis to compare the biomechanical characteristics after lateral locking plate (LLP) or LLP with a medial anatomical locking plate (LLP-MLP) fixation of proximal humeral fractures with an unstable medial column.First, a 3-dimensional, finite element analysis model was developed. Next, LLP and LLP-MLP(More)
Oxidative stress induces bone loss and osteoporosis, and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may be used to combat these diseases due to its antioxidative property. Herein, oxidative stress in human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) was induced by H2O2, resulting in an adverse effect on their osteogenic differentiation. However, this(More)
We demonstrate the direct reconstruction of 3D atomic images from measured low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) intensity spectra. A multiple-incident angle and multiple-energy integral are first applied to the spectra to obtain a map of interatomic vectors. From this map, a nonbulk interatomic vector is chosen that points to a desired reference atom. A(More)
Excess fluoride intake could induce apoptosis in the cells. As an essential micronutrient and cytoprotectant, zinc is involved in many types of apoptosis. Here, we studied the effects of zinc and ZIP1 on fluoride-induced apoptosis in mouse MC3T3-E1 cells and examined the underlying molecular mechanisms. Our study found that fluoride not only inhibited cell(More)
Small cell carcinoma of the esophagus (SCCE) is a rare, highly aggressive tumor characterized by early dissemination and a poor prognosis. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy have been used alone or in combination for the treatment of this rare disease. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze the role of surgery in the management of(More)
BACKGROUND Plate fixation is the gold standard for diaphyseal fracture management, and the anterolateral approach is widely used by reconstructive surgeons. However, the outcomes of humeral shaft fracture fixation using a medial approach are rarely reported. The aim of this study is to explore the management and outcomes of humeral mid-shaft fractures fixed(More)
