PURPOSE It is known that tibial diaphyseal fractures are often associated with the posterior malleolar fracture (PMF). There are a few studies on tibial shaft fractures with respect to posterior malleolus fracture. However, we found that the incidence of PMF was higher than the previously reported. METHODS A total of 288 tibial shaft fractures were(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI). Using a 3 T magnetic resonance scanner, DWI of the lumbar spine was assessed in 109 patients, with a total of 545 lumbar discs analyzed. Apparent(More)
AIMS The current study was carried out to evaluate the effect of advanced glycation end-products (AGE) on cardiac aging and to explore its underlying mechanisms. METHODS Neonatal rat cardiac fibroblasts were cultured and divided into four groups: control; AGE; AGE + receptor for AGE antibody and AGE + SB431542 (transforming growth factor-β [TGF-β]/Smad(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the association between fat distribution and volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) in Chinese Adults. Using a cross-sectional investigation of 867 participants including 521 women and 346 men from China, vBMD and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) or visceral adipose tissue (VAT) were measured accordingly by(More)
Making the workflow work in coordination is an important method to improve the efficiency of the workflow. This article has proposed a management method based on the knowledge library to make the workflows cooperative. This management method cooperatively controls the workflow from the tripartite aspects, which are the fixed flow, the special flow and the(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether pitavastatin protected against injury induced by advanced glycation end products products (AGEs) in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes, and to examine the underlying mechanisms. Cardiomyocytes of neonatal rats were incubated for 48 hours with AGEs (100mg/mL), receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), antibody (1(More)
In multi-sensor multi-target fusion systems the sensor registration is the major problem which is generally inadequate. The typical registration algorithms are based on statistics, such as LSE, ML etc. and on filtering theory, such as KF, EKF etc. They all are parametric methods namely. We propose a new algorithm that is based on ANN, nonparametric and many(More)
