The reorganization of brain structures after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) insult is crucial to functional outcome. Although the pattern of neuronal rewiring is well-documented after ischemic stroke, the study of brain plasticity after ICH has been focusing on the enhancement of dendritic complexity. Here we hypothesized that functional restoration after(More)
A dural tear is a common complication after acute laceration spinal cord injury (ALSCI). An unrepaired dural tear is associated with poor locomotor functional recovery. Spinal duraplasty with biomaterials may promote functional recovery in ALSCI. However, an ideal dural substitute has not yet been found. In this work, we investigated the possibility of(More)
BACKGROUND We hypothesized that the presence of tiny, enhancing foci ('spot sign') within acute hematomas is associated with hematoma expansion. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the effect of hematoma volume on accuracy of computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in predicting hematoma expansion in 312 patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).(More)
AIMS Poor efficacy of chemotherapy drugs in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the key reason for the failure of treatment, but the mechanism of this remains largely unknown. Stromal cell-derived factor 1-alpha (SDF-1α/CXCL12) is a small chemotactic cytokine protein that plays an important role in tumor progression. In this study, we investigated the(More)
PURPOSE Achieving a radiographic gross total resection in high-grade gliomas improves overall survival. Many technologies such as intraoperative microscope, intraoperative ultrasound, fluorescence imaging, and intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging have been applied to improve tumor resection. However, most commercial available magnetic resonance imaging(More)
