Stress-dose of glucocorticoid has been demonstrated to be beneficial for trauma patients in clinical studies. Recently, a heterogeneous population of myeloid cells with immunosuppressive activity named myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) has been found to accumulate in the trauma host and can be induced by glucocorticoids in vitro. In order to explore(More)
Generic 3D shape retrieval is a fundamental research area in the field of content-based 3D model retrieval. The aim of this track is to measure and compare the performance of generic 3D shape retrieval methods implemented by different participants over the world. The track is based on a new generic 3D shape benchmark, which contains 1200 triangle meshes(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protective effect of standard enteral nutrition (EN) and enteral immunonutrition (EIN) combined with recombinant human growth hormone rhGH on intestinal mucosa damage in scalded rats. METHODS Rats subjected to 30% total body surface area (TBSA III°), and they were divided randomly into five groups referred to as EN, EIN,(More)
The effect of dexamethasone with different concentrations and different stimulating periods on the expression of glucocorticoid receptors (GRalpha, GRbeta) protein was investigated in human monocyte cell line THP-1. The cultured human monocyte line THP-1 cells were stimulated by dexamethasone with different concentrations and different periods. The(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to assess the influence of sex on outcomes among trauma patients, including injury severity, medical resource utility, complications, and mortality. METHODS A systematic review of the literature was conducted by internet search. Data were extracted from selected studies and analyzed using Stata to compare outcomes between male(More)
This contribution reports the results of the SHREC 2012 track: Stability on Abstract Shapes. This track saw six registrations of which only three participants effectively sent the results of their runs. The aim of SHREC is to evaluate the performance of existing 3D shape retrieval algorithms, by highlighting their strengths and weaknesses, using a common(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to assess the effect of obesity on injury severity score (ISS), mortality and course of hospital stay among trauma patients. METHOD A systematic review of the literature was conducted by Internet search. Data were extracted from included studies and analysed using a random-effects model to compare outcomes in the obese (body mass(More)
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) play a crucial role in T cell dysfunction, which is related to poor outcome in patients with severe trauma. Cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2) contributes to immune disorder in trauma and infection via production of prostaglandin E2. However, the role of Cox-2 in the accumulation and function of MDSCs after traumatic stress(More)
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of three-tube insertion for the treatment of postoperative gastroesophageal anastomotic leakage (GEAL). MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2007 to January 2011, 28 cases of postoperative GEAL after an esophagectomy with intrathoracic esophagogastric anastomotic procedures for(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a kind of emergency treatment for cardiopulmonary arrest, and chest compression is the most important and necessary part of CPR. The American Heart Association published the new Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care in 2010 and demanded for better performance of chest(More)
