BACKGROUND This retrospective study evaluates the efficacy and safety of surgery and chemotherapy (S +CT) vs. radiotherapy and CT (RT+CT) in patients with limited stage small cell esophageal cancer (LS-SCEC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients included in analysis (from our hospital and the literature) were treated with S+CT or RT+CT between 1989 and 2012. The(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of flexible ureteroscopy and holmium laser lithotripsy for the management of patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and associated nephrolithiasis. Between 2005 and 2010, flexible ureteroscopic stone treatment was attempted in 13 patients with ADPKD. Two(More)
The paper studies the path loss models of the wideband channels at 2.3 GHz, 2.6 GHz and 3.5 GHz which are released by ITU-R(International Telecommunication Union-Radio communications) for the new generation radio network IMT-Advanced in a typical outdoor suburban environment of Shanghai, China. A channel measurement system for these frequency bands was(More)
Presented in this paper is a multi-scale analysis for environmental dispersion in a three-layer wetland for predicting the critical length of contaminant cloud that derives from instantaneous emission. The analysis of dependence of the dispersivity on characteristic parameters is determined. Longitudinal concentration distribution centered at the origin of(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to describe the technical experience and outcome in laparoscopic-assisted total cyst excision of choledochal cyst with Roux-en-Y hepatoenterostomy. METHODS Thirty-five patients with choledochal cyst were studied. Their age ranged from 3 months to 9 years (average age, 3.6 years). The choledochal cysts were cyst type in 33(More)
A study of the serological and epidemiological effects of primary immunization with current live attenuated measles vaccine (Hu191) among 503 children aged 6-15 months, was conducted in Jingzhou, Hubei province, China from 1991 to 1998. The results showed that the positive conversion rate of measles IgG was 91.65%, geometric mean titer (GMT) was 1:266.74(More)
Pericytes, which envelope the vascular endothelium throughout the body, are often targeted to promote vascular normalization and restore normal function of blood vessels in cancer treatment. The goals of pericyte-targeted therapy tend to promote proper vascular normalization of the tumor. Tumor vascular normalization prevents metastasis, increases tumor(More)
Ubiquitous healthcare (u-Healthcare) is an emerging paradigm in the healthcare environment. One of the most promising applications for u-Healthcare is the ubiquitous smart home and smart hospital, health monitoring system. The healthcare technology keeps healthcare executives and managers up-to-date about the latest computer-based solutions for improving(More)
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is an emerging solution that aims at improving the flexibility, the efficiency and the manageability of networks, by leveraging virtualization and cloud computing technologies to run network appliances in software. Nevertheless, the "notarization" of network functions imposes software reliability concerns on future(More)
