STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare the operative outcomes of patients undergoing either single-port or multiport laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH). METHODS Two hundred fifty-six women scheduled for LH for symptomatic myoma and/or adenomyosis from 8 tertiary teaching hospitals were randomized to single-port or multiport groups. Primary outcome was conversion and/or(More)
BACKGROUND This study explored the pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution, and excretion profile of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles with respect to their particle size in rats. METHODS Two ZnO nanoparticles of different size (20 nm and 70 nm) were orally administered to male and female rats, respectively. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve,(More)
Functional nanofibrous materials composed of gelatin-apatite-poly(lactide-co-caprolactone) (PLCL) were produced using an electrospinning process. A gelatin-apatite precipitate, which mimicked bone extracellular matrix, was homogenized in an organic solvent using various concentrations of PLCL. A fibrous structure with approximate diameters of a few hundred(More)
A reliable source of osteogenic cells is an essential factor for bone tissue engineering. In this study, human-induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) without an embryoid body step were cultured in macrochanneled poly(caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds prepared using a robotic dispensing technique, after which osteogenesis was promoted by the addition of(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to describe the clinicopathologic characteristics and outcomes and to assess the predictors associated with prognosis in endometrial carcinoma that developed bone metastasis. METHODS A retrospective review of medical records was performed to identify the patients with endometrial carcinoma who developed bone metastasis between(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare surgical outcomes of laparoendoscopic single-site myomectomy (LESS-M) vs. conventional laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). DESIGN Multicenter, noninferiority, randomized, controlled trial. SETTING University hospitals. PATIENT(S) A total of 100 subjects with symptomatic uterine myomas were randomly assigned to either LESS-M or(More)
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have found a variety of uses including biomedical materials; however, studies of the cytotoxicity of AgNPs by size effects are only in the beginning stage. In this study, we examined the size-dependent cellular toxicity of AgNPs using three different characteristic sizes (∼ 10, 50, and 100 nm) against several cell lines(More)
We report the ability of aminated mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSN-NH2) with large mesopore space and positive-charged surface to deliver genes within rat mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The amine functionalized inorganic nanoparticles were complexed with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP2) plasmid DNA (pDNA) to study their transfection efficiency in(More)
Magnetic nanofibrous scaffolds of poly(caprolactone) (PCL) incorporating magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) were produced, and their effects on physico-chemical, mechanical and biological properties were extensively addressed to find efficacy for bone regeneration purpose. MNPs 12 nm in diameter were citrated and evenly distributed in PCL solutions up to 20% and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM A novel nanofibrous membrane of a degradable biopolymer poly (lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) (PLCL) for guided bone regeneration (GBR) was designed and its tissue compatibility and ability to promote the regeneration of new bone were investigated in a rat mandibular defect model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The nanofibrous structuring of the PLCL(More)
