Breviscapine is a flavonoid extracted from Erigeron breviscapus. Hand.-Mazz, and it has been reported that breviscapine can activate K+ channels and block Ca2+ channels. In this paper, we studied the cardioprotective effects of breviscapine on electrocardiogram (ECG) changes (ST-segment elevation), infarction size in dog heart subjected to myocardial(More)
BACKGROUND Open inguinal hernia repair (OIHR) carries serious risks without providing contralateral visualization. METHODS We compared OIHR (n = 363) with single-port laparoscopic extracorporeal hernia ligation with a modified cannula (SLELmc; n = 1514), in which the processus vaginalis (PV) was ligated extracorporeally with our modified cannula via the(More)
To investigate the value of combined conventional ultrasound (US), strain elastography (SE) and acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography for prediction of cervical lymph node metastasis (CLNM) in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). A consecutive series of 203 patients with 222 PTCs were preoperatively evaluated by US, SE, and ARFI including virtual(More)
The purpose of the study was to explore the diagnostic performance of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastography in differential diagnosis between benign and malignant thyroid nodules in patients with coexistent Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT). A total of 141 pathological proven nodules in 141 HT patients (7 males and 134 females, mean age 50.1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the therapeutic efficacy and safety of ultrasound-guided percutaneous bipolar radiofrequency ablation (BRFA) of benign thyroid nodules by comparison with a matched untreated control group. METHODS The therapeutic efficacy and safety in 35 patients who were subjected to a single session of ultrasound-guided percutaneous BRFA (Group A)(More)
AIM To evaluate long-term outcomes of radiofrequency (RF) ablation as first-line therapy for single hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ≤ 3 cm and to determine survival and prognostic factors. METHODS We included all 184 patients who underwent RF ablation as a first-line treatment for single HCC ≤ 3 cm between April 2005 and December 2013. According to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess effect of acupuncture combined with massage of sole on sleeping quality of the patient with insomnia. METHODS Fifty-eight cases of insomnia were randomly divided into an observation group (n = 32) and a control group (n = 26). The observation group were treated with oral administration of Alprazolam, massage of sole, and acupuncture at(More)
By analyzing the data transmission Collisions for wireless sensor networks, due to the shortage of energy efficiency and latency in MAC protocol, we propose a distributed TDMA scheduling protocol based on coloring algorithm (TDMA-CA), which uses spatial reuse of transmission channel. It allocates different colors for conflict nodes in the networks, and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical and clinical outcomes of using laparoscopic radiofrequency (RF) ablation for treating large subcapsular hepatic hemangiomas. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed our sequential experience of treating 124 large subcapsular hepatic hemangiomas in 121 patients with laparoscopic RF ablation. (More)
OBJECTIVES To explore the correlation between multi-slice spiral CT (MSCT) perfusion parameters and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) as well as matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP- 2) in breast cancer. METHODS Forty five breast cancer patients and 16 patients with benign breast tumor, both confirmed by pathology examination, were(More)
