OBJECTIVE We examined the incidence of nodal involvement and attempted to determine the predictive factors for central compartment lymph node (LN) metastasis in thyroid papillary microcarcinoma (PMC). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review. METHODS We undertook a retrospective study of 52 patients treated between January 2000 and December 2005 for PMC(More)
OBJECTIVES OK-432 has been widely used to treat lymphangioma and ranula; however, there are few studies for its use in treatment of branchial cleft cyst (BCC). We conducted this study to evaluate the effectiveness of sclerotherapy using OK-432 in treatment of BCC. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Case series with planned data collection. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE Microsatellite alterations, especially those that cause loss of heterozygosity (LOH), have recently been postulated as a novel mechanism of carcinogenesis and a useful prognostic factor in many kinds of malignant tumors. However, few studies have focused on a specific site, hypopharynx. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship(More)
Hydraulic excavators are the representative of field robot and has been used in various fields of construction. Since the excavator operates in the hazardous working circumstance, operators of excavator exposed in harmful environment. Therefore, automation and remote control system have been investigated to protect from the hazardous working environment. In(More)

STUDY DESIGN Prospective animal study. SETTING Tertiary academic medical center. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-four New Zealand white rabbits were used in this study. We randomly(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the usefulness and safety of a steroid injection into vocal nodules via the cricothyroid membrane. Local administration of steroid directly into the larynx has been reported in many laryngeal diseases with different methods. DESIGN Prospective case series at an academic tertiary care hospital. PATIENTS Eighty patients with vocal(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relationships between lymph node metastasis (LNM) and expression of CD31, D2-40 and vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF)-A and -C in patients with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). METHODS Paraffin-embedded thyroid tissues of 72 patients were evaluated, which included 25 patients with thyroid nodular hyperplasia (TNH), 24(More)
OBJECTIVE The role of (18)F-fluorodeocyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in only PET/CT-positive lymph nodes (LNs) is not well elucidated yet. This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic value of only PET/CT-positive LNs without correlating positive findings on conventional imaging modalities (CT, magnetic resonance(More)
