OBJECTIVE To evaluate damage to the extracorticospinal tract in Wilson disease (WD) patients using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). METHODS 70 patients with WD, including 50 with cerebral type and 20 with hepatic type, and 20 age-matched healthy controls were enrolled. Neurological symptoms were scored using the modified Young Scale. Patients with cerebral(More)
BACKGROUND FOXP3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) inhibit effector T cell functions and are implicated in tumour progression. However, together with microvessel density (MVD) they remain controversial prognostic predictors for renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and potential associations have yet to be determined. The objective of this study was to determine the(More)
In this study we evaluate the oncological and functional results of the largest cohort of patients in China treated by laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) and with at least 3 years of follow-up. 126 inconsecutive patients (range 56-78 years, median 62.5) who had an LRP were retrospectively analyzed. The mean prostate specific antigen level and Gleason(More)
Objective: To describe the aetiology and efficacy of the treatment of persistent and recurrent hemospermia as a novel technique of transurethral seminal vesiculoscopy. Methods: The clinical data of 290 patients with persistent and recurrent hemospermia (a course of hemospermia persisting more than 6 months) from multiple medical center of South China were(More)
Background: Partial trisomy 16q is a rare syndrome with a wide range of manifestations. We here reported a boy patient with an inherited balanced complex chromosome rearrangement (CCR) involving chromosomes 1, 5, 12 and 13, and a de novo pure partial trisomy 16q24.1-24.3. Methods: We performed G-banding analysis of the peripheral blood, chromosomal(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of characterizing the brain-mineral deposition in patients with Wilson disease (WD) using susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study enrolled 30 WD patients and 20 age-matched healthy controls. Neurological symptoms were scored using the modified Young Scale. The(More)
