A 39-year-old Chinese man developed ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS) in both eyes 14 years after radiation therapy for nasopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Digital subtraction angiography disclosed occlusion of common carotid arteries and stenosis of both vertebral arteries. Following stenting of the vertebral arteries, visual function improved and(More)
BACKGROUND Because brain morphological abnormalities in major depressive disorder (MDD) may be modulated by medication and episodes, previous meta-analyses of voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies therefore have been biased for including medicated patients or medication-free patients who had ever received drugs, as well as patients with different episodes.(More)
The subventricular zone (SVZ), lining the lateral ventricle in forebrain, retains a population of neuronal precursors with the ability of proliferation in adult mammals. To test the potential of neuronal precursors in adult mice, we transplanted adult SVZ cells labeled with fluorescent dye PKH26 into the lateral ventricle of the mouse brain in different(More)
BACKGROUND The absolute lymphocyte counts (ALCs) have been reported as one of worse prognostic factors for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patient after liver transplantation. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of ALCs on the outcomes of patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC within the Milan criteria following liver resection. (More)
An elevated preoperative aspartate aminotransferase (AST) to platelet ratio index (APRI) is reported to be a prognostic factor for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after treatment. However, delta APRI (ΔAPRI), which represents the change from preoperative to postoperative APRI, has received little attention. The present study was designed to(More)
Background. Parastomal hernia is a common complication after stoma formation, especially in permanent colostomy. The present meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of prophylactic mesh application during permanent colostomy for preventing parastomal hernia. Methods. Randomized controlled trials comparing outcomes in patients who underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Immunoglobin A nephropathy (IgAN), the most prevalent form of primary glomerulonephritis, represents the leading cause of kidney failure among East Asian populations. Immunosuppressive treatment regimen, except for a 6-month trial of corticosteroids, has not been approved by the KDIGO guideline yet. Specific and effective treatment is still(More)
Patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (aSTS) typically have a poor prognosis. Patients progressing to doxorubicin-based regimen have limited therapeutic options. Monotherapy with cytotoxic drugs appears to have only modest activity in the second-line setting. The purpose of this phase II study was to prospectively evaluate the safety and efficacy of(More)
This study examined a 24-year-old patient with delayed encephalopathy, who was admitted to hospital with complaints of headache and visual impairment 1 week after acute carbon monoxide poisoning. The results of a visual field assessment, electroencephalography and head magnetic resonance imaging indicated damage to the cerebral cortex. After a 2-week(More)
