Transurethral dilation of the prostate (TUDP) with a spherical balloon catheter is a traditional treatment for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). TUDP, however, has been abandoned in clinical application because of its unsatisfying treatment benefit and severe complications. In this study, we redesigned an improved TUDP surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect and mechanisms of botulinum toxin type A(BTA) on vasomotor rhinitis. METHOD A retrospective study of 32 patients with vasomotor rhinitis who received BTA injection at 4 points in bilateral nasal cavities with 2.5 units at each point had been done. The state of rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction, sneeze and nasal mucosa edema(More)
OBJECTIVE To privde useful anatomic data for the microvascular decompression surgery of the vestibulocochlear nerve in the cerebellopontine angle. METHOD The recurrent perforating artery related with VN in the cerebellopontine angle were examined with operating microscope in 20 adult head cadavers fixed with formalin. RESULT The recurrent perforating(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expression of transforming growth factor alpha, beta 1 in hyperplastic tissue after endoscopic polypectomy and the effect of corticosteroid. METHOD Forty patients with nasal polyps were divided into two groups randomly: corticosteroid group (n = 20) with topical application of Budesonide (BUD, 400 micrograms/d) after endoscopic(More)

ECochG and glycerol test are two kinds of objective examinations for the diagnosis of Ménière's disease. Previous reports showed that the positive rates in both methods vary widely. In the present study, the incidence of abnormal SP enhancement was 63% (51 out of 81 ears in 70 patients). The SP enhancement correlated with the symptoms, especially aural(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the roles of axoplasmic transportation during regeneration after facial nerve injury. METHOD Facial nucleus injection and isotopic-label tracer with liquid scintillation counting techniques were used to investigate the changes of radioactivity after guinea pig facial nerve compressed. RESULT Axoplasmic transportation was observed(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the distribution of rat facial motoneurons contributing different branches under normal situation and when nerve reinnervation occurred following facial nerve axotomy. METHODS The normal distribution of motoneurons innervated both buccal and marginal mandibular branches and its reorganization after facial nerve reinnervation was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the changes of receptor tyrosine kinase B and C (trkB and trkC) mRNA in facial motoneurons following facial nerve injury and repair. METHODS The time course of trkB and trkC mRNA in facial motoneurons following facial nerve transection and anastomosis was analyzed using in situ hybridization (ISH) and reverse transcriptase-polymerase(More)
We aimed to evaluate the long-term therapeutic effect of transurethral split of the prostate (TUSP) with a newly improved double-columnar balloon catheter on patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).Total 565 BPH patients (mean age 73.6 years, range 46-94 years) who underwent TUSP surgery between January 2006 and January 2015 were included.(More)
Sinusoidal rotation and rotational stimulation tests were used to examine vestibular function in guinea pigs. The results showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the mean number of nystagmus of semi-cycle sinusoidal rotation test and the duration of nystagmus of rotational stimulation test for both the control and test groups before(More)
