An ethnicity- and gender-specific normal reference database is necessary for the clinical dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) assessment of skeletal status in Chinese children. We used a Lunar Prodigy DXA densitometer to measure bone mineral density (BMD), bone mineral content (BMC), and bone area (BA) at total body and subcranial skeleton for 877(More)
This study was aimed at determining the correlation between regional body composition and total body fat percentage (TBF%), as measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), among Chinese women and men. Men (n=203) and women (n=630), aged 20-87yr, were assessed for height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) and for total body, lumbar spine (L2-L4), and(More)
Chitosan, a naturally occurring high-molecular glycosaminoglycan (GAG), has been widely used in wound healing, including burns. Heparin is also a highly used glycosaminoglycan in burns. To evaluate the effects of chitosan and heparin alone and the mixture of chitosan and heparin on early extension of burn wound, deep partial-thickness burns were performed(More)
Hand bone mineral density (BMD) in adults was found to be significantly correlated with various skeletal sites, including the total body. However, the relationships between hand and total body bone measurements have yet to be explored for children. We conducted a cross-sectional study of 892 normal Chinese children (511 males, 381 females) aged 5-14 years(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the physiological function of sodium hyaluronate in joints and its clinical applications. METHODS Many literatures were reviewed and analysed on therapeutic mechanism and the application foreground of sodium hyaluronate. RESULTS Extrinsic sodium hyaluronate plays an important role in improving synovial fluid and protecting cartilages(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the contralateral femoral bone mineral density (BMD) difference as measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in mainland Chinese women and men. We measured bilateral proximal femora (i.e., total hip, femoral neck, upper femoral neck, and trochanter) using DXA in 1101 subjects (284 males, 817 females), among whom(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore an effective acupotomology surgery program in treating cubital tunnel syndrome. METHODS According to pathogenic factors and elbow anatomy, a "two points" acupotomology surgery program was designed, which could loose the attachment point of arcuate ligament on medial border of olecroanon and medial epicondyle of humerus. Twenty-one(More)
This study was aimed at assessing the correlations between the bone mineral density (BMD) of the hand and other skeletal sites in Chinese women and men. We measured the BMD of the total body, the anteroposterior lumbar spine (L2-L4), bilateral proximal femurs (i.e., total hip, femoral neck, and trochanter), and bilateral total hands in 363 Chinese adults(More)
AIM To prepare a complex of hyaluronic acid (HA) and phospholipids (PL), and study the improvement effect of PL on the oral absorption of HA. METHODS The complex of HA-PL (named Haplex) was prepared by film dispersion and sonication method, its physico-chemical properties were identified by infrared spectra and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
