OBJECTIVES To compare surgical efficacy and postoperative recovery of ultrasonic scalpel (USS) with conventional techniques for the resection of gastric carcinoma. METHODS A systematic search of major medical databases (PubMed, Embase, CCRT and CNKI) was conducted. Both randomized and non-randomized controlled trials (RCTs and nRCTs) were considered(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric carcinoma (GC) is one of the highest cancer-mortality diseases with a high incidence rate in Asia. For surgically unfit but medically fit patients, palliative chemotherapy is the main treatment. The chemotherapy regimen of docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF) has been used to treat the advanced stage or metastatic GC. It is(More)
This study aimed to investigate the impact of body mass index (BMI) on the short-term and long-term results of a large cohort of gastric cancer (GC) patients undergoing gastrectomy.Recently, the "obesity paradox" has been proposed, referring to the paradoxically "better" outcomes of overweight and obese patients compared with nonoverweight patients. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To compare effectiveness between total gastrectomy (TG) and proximal gastrectomy (PG) for proximal gastric cancer. METHODOLOGY PubMed, Embase, Cochrane library and Chinese CNKI databases were searched to select eligible studies comparing TG to PG for proximal gastric cancer. Outcome measures included overall survival, recurrence, mortality(More)
Dopamine (DA) receptors, which belong to the G protein-coupled receptor family, are the target of ~50% of all modern medicinal drugs and constitute a large and diverse class of proteins whose primary function is to transduce extracellular stimuli into intracellular signals. Na+/K+-ATPase (NKA) is ubiquitous and crucial for the maintenance of intracellular(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS This study aimed to compare the short and long-term outcomes of hand-assisted laparoscopic gastrectomy (HALG) to those of laparoscopy assisted gastrectomy (LAG). METHODOLOGY From June 2009 to October 2011, fifteen pairs of patients with gastric carcinoma who underwent LAG or HALG were included for analysis retrospectively. Overall(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of symptomatic lumbar degenerative disease treated with topping-off technique (Coflex™ combined with fusion) and compare two-segment fusion at mid-long term follow-up; and find out whether the topping-off technique can reduce the rate of adjacent segment degeneration (ASD) after fusion. One hundred and(More)
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) has drawn more attention to the treatment of locally advanced gastric cancer (AGC) in the current multidisciplinary treatment model. EORTC trial 40954 has recently reported that NAC plus surgery without postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy could not benefit the locally AGC patients in their overall survival. We performed a(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the survival benefit of palliative gastrectomy for gastric cancer patients with peritoneal seeding proven intraoperatively and to identify positive predictive factors for improving survival.The value of palliative resection for gastric cancer patients with peritoneal metastasis is controversial.From 2006 to 2013, 267(More)
Rice straw is a by-product of rice production, and a great bioresource as raw biomass material for manufacturing value-adding protein for animal feedstock, which has been paid more and more attention. In the present work, utilizing rice straw hydrolysate as a substrate for microbial biomass production in 11.5L external-loop airlift bioreactors was(More)
