AIM novel hemostatic sealant based on the in situ gel formation of gelatin catalyzed by thrombin and crosslinked by transglutaminase was designed. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of the hemostatic sealant in control of bleeding caused by liver trauma in dogs. METHODS Hepatic trauma that mimicked the grade III-IV rupture of liver was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the difference between acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) and two-dimensional shearwave elastography (2D-SWE) in grading liver fibrosis (LF). METHODS Sixty New Zealand rabbits were divided into control group (n=10; without any treatment) and LF group (n=50; treated with CCl4 to induce LF at different degrees). Liver stiffness(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of ultrasound molecular imaging in the early diagnosis of liver ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) using a nanoscale contrast agent targeting anti-intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (anti-ICAM-1). METHODS The targeted nanobubbles containing anti-ICAM-1 antibody were prepared using the avidin-biotin binding method. Human(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of liver stiffness measured by acoustic radiation force impulse imaging(ARFI) in assessing hepatic functional reserve in patients with space-occupying lesions in the liver. METHODS Sixty-three patients with space-occupying lesions in the liver were enrolled. Liver stiffness (LS) measurements with ARFI and indocyanine(More)
