BACKGROUND Patients with symptomatic stenosis of intradural arteries are at high risk for subsequent stroke. Since the SAMMPRIS trial, stenting is no longer recommended as primary treatment; however, the results of this trial, its inclusion criteria and its center selection received significant criticism and did not appear to reflect our experience(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a simple prognostic model to predict outcome at 1 month after acute basilar artery occlusion (BAO) with readily available predictors. METHODS The Basilar Artery International Cooperation Study (BASICS) is a prospective, observational, international registry of consecutive patients who presented with an acute symptomatic and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of multimodal reperfusion therapy (MMRT) for tandem internal carotid artery and middle cerebral arterial (TIM) occlusions. Cases of TIM occlusion were collected and retrospectively reviewed. The analyzed objects included etiology, sites of tandem occlusion, collateral flow, location and size of(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular recanalization and stenting has been used to treat patients with symptomatic nonacute intracranial vertebrobasilar artery occlusion (VBAO) refractory to aggressive medical treatment. This study was performed to analyze the perioperative complications of the procedures. METHODS Between February 2010 and March 2012, 27 consecutive(More)
As an essential part of central dogma, RNA delivers genetic and regulatory information and reflects cellular states. Based on high-throughput sequencing technologies, cumulating data show that various RNA molecules are able to serve as biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of various diseases, for instance, cancer. In particular, detectable in various(More)
This paper aims to discuss the short-term effect of Atorvastatin on lower-extremity function of patients with hypertension and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). 40 patients with hypertension and ankle-brachial index (ABI) less than 0.9 were divided into the control group (20 cases) and Atorvastatin group (20 cases) and treated for 6 months. The variation(More)
Small molecule BH3 mimetics comprise a promising new chemotherapeutic strategy for treating relapsed or chemoresistant cancer. In this study, we investigated the cellular mechanism of action by which BM-1197, a Bcl-xL/Bcl-2 dual inhibitor, triggers apoptosis in a panel of colorectal cancer (CRC) lines. Using(More)
Basilar artery dissection is a rare disease with high morbidity and mortality. No well-established management strategy exists for this lesion. Endovascular reconstructive therapy using stents (with or without coiling) may be the optimum strategy.We describe our center's experience for this treatment strategy in 21 patients with basilar artery dissection(More)
A sub-set of patients with nonacute vertebrobasilar artery occlusion (VBAO) suffers recurrent ischemic events and progressive disability despite intensive medical therapy. Optimal management in these patients is unknown, and there is little literature to guide therapy. Recently, revascularization with stenting has been tried (1,2). However, the efficacy is(More)
In order to provide scientific basis for clinical selection of drugs, to compare and analyze the effective constitutes and the intestinal absorption in vivo in rats of the compound salvia tablets and compound salvia dropping pills (taken as the representatives). Determine the contents of tanshinol, protocatechuic aldehyde, salvianolic acid B and tanshinone(More)
