Intervertebral disc (IVD) cell apoptosis has been suggested to play an important role in promoting the degeneration process. It has been demonstrated that IVD cell apoptosis occurs through either death receptor, mitochondrial or endoplasmic reticulum (ER) pathway. Our study aimed to explore the relationship among these three pathways and grade of IVD(More)
The development of iliac screws has provided a markedly easier way for spino-pelvic instrumentation than the classical Galveston technique. However, high rates of iliac screw loosening and breakage are usually reported, especially in cases where bilateral single iliac screws are used. Therefore, there is a need for exploring more stable iliac fixation(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the relationship between spino-pelvic sagittal balance parameters and lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration of each segment through retrospective analysis in lumbar degeneration patients. METHODS Retrospective analysis was conducted for the follow-up data in 126 patients with lumbar degenerative disease from July 2009 to June(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the correlation of spinal sagittal imbalance and life quality. METHODS Radiographic analysis for 48 consecutive symptomatic patients with spinal sagittal imbalance was performed with posteroanterior and lateral standing radiographs. There were 12 males and 36 females with an average age of (66.2 ± 8.5) yrs. The measurement parameters(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of phenobarbital in treatment of patients with convulsive forms of epilepsy in rural areas and to develop a suitable relevant model for rural China. METHODS A demonstration protocol was conducted in the rural areas of 8 counties from 6 provinces and municipality in China, Heilongjiang, Ningxia, Henan, Jiangsu, Shanxi,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate vertebral augmentation with a novel reticulate bone filling container system by polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) injection in cadaveric simulated vertebral compressive fracture and explore the effect of reticulate bone filling container on cement distribution controlling within vertebral body and the restoration of biomechanical(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of local injection of recombinant hirudin on survival of skin flaps with venous congestion in a rabbit model. METHODS Eighteen healthy rabbits were enrolled and divided into heparin-treatment (HT), recombinant hirudin treatment (RHT) and control (C) groups according to the random number table, with 6 rabbits in each group.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effectiveness of 23-valent penumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PenV23) and Split-Virus influenza vaccine (InfV-B) for preventing upper respiratory diseases in the aging population. METHODS 151 people aged > or =60 years who inoculated the PenV23 and InfV-B vaccines at clinics during 2005 as trial group, and 188 people aged > or(More)
