BACKGROUND AND AIMS Unlike most other countries, in China, liver failure is termed as severe hepatitis. However, there are two differences between liver failure and severe hepatitis: the interval of acute and sub-acute severe hepatitis and the etiology. The aims of this study were to assess the best cutoff time-point to distinguish between acute and(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a common outcome of traffic accidents and trauma with severe consequences. There has been no cure for such a condition. We performed experiments to evaluate the feasibility of implanting a chitosan tube filled with semifluid type I collagen into the site of surgically induced SCI to facilitate functional recovery. After a segment(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM N-methyl-4-isoleucine cyclosporine (NIM811), a new analogue of cyclosporine A, can inhibit collagen deposition in vitro and reduce liver necrosis in a bile-duct-ligation animal model. However, whether NIM811 effects on CCl(4) -induced rat liver fibrosis, and the related mechanism has not been determined. METHODS A liver fibrosis model(More)
BACKGROUND Oriental people usually have a wide midface and a prominent zygoma. Reduction malarplasty is one of the most frequently requested procedures for improvement of the facial contour in the Orient. Some methods involve coronal or preauricular incision for osteotomy, but this increases the likelihood of skin scars and injury to facial nerves, and(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with no double eyelid folds and with a mild or moderate medial epicanthus are most typically Asians. After only receiving double eyelidplasty, they often complain that their eyes look round and their eyelid fissures are shorter because their medial epicanthi still exist. METHODS In this article, according to the authors' surgical(More)
Treatment of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis remains a challenging field. Hepatocyte injury and the activation of hepatic stellate cells are the 2 major events in the development of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. It is known that several Chinese herbs have significant beneficial effects on the liver; therefore, the purpose of the present study was to(More)
BACKGROUND [corrected] Hepatic fibrosis can lead to deformation of vessel morphology and structure. In the present feasibility study, high-resolution computed tomography (CT) using diffraction-enhanced imaging (DEI) was used to represent three-dimensional (3D) vessel microstructures of hepatic fibrosis in rats and to differentiate different stages of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Liver stiffness measurement (LSM) using transient elastography (FibroScan) is a useful tool to assess fibrosis in various chronic liver diseases. However, studies were mainly performed in Western countries and largely focused on chronic hepatitis C (CHC). We therefore carried out a multicenter study to validate the accuracy of LSM in the(More)
BACKGROUND A total upper eyelid defect is a rare problem that may result from tumor excision, trauma, or burns. Reconstruction of a total upper eyelid defect involves the reconstruction of 2 fundamental elements: anterior and posterior lamellae. Because an expander capsule looks like the palpebral conjunctiva with a moist, smooth, white glistening(More)
Studies have suggested that glutamine synthetase (GS) is a potential marker of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to evaluate the expression of GS in non-malignant liver tissue and serum GS levels in HCC, liver cirrhosis (LC), chronic hepatitis B (CHB), five kinds of extrahepatic diseases patients and healthy subjects. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was(More)
