OBJECTIVE To describe the application of lateral arm free flap (LAFF) in reconstruction of defects in the oral and maxillofacial regions following ablative oncological surgery. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study included 16 patients (13 male, 3 female, mean age 56, range 35-69 years). Sixteen LAFF were harvested to reconstruct defects caused by the dissection(More)
Keywords: Global sensitivity analysis Statistical emulator DTVGM Response surface model RSMSobol' method a b s t r a c t Efficient sensitivity analysis, particularly for the global sensitivity analysis (GSA) to identify the most important or sensitive parameters, is crucial for understanding complex hydrological models, e.g., distributed hydrological(More)
A hybrid rainfall-runoff model that integrates artificial neural networks (ANNs) with Xinanjiang (XAJ) model was proposed in this study. The writers extracted the digital drainage network and subcatchments from digital elevation model (DEM) data considering the spatial distribution of rain-gauge stations. Then the semidistributed XAJ model was established(More)
Oral leukoplakia (OL) is the most common premalignancy in the oral cavity and can progress to oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). SMAD4 is a tumor suppressor implicated in multiple cancer types including OSCC. To assess the role of SMAD4 in oral leukoplakia malignant transformation, the authors investigated SMAD4 expression patterns in OL and OSCC using a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of semaphorin-3F (SEMA-3F) gene transient transfection on the proliferation of Tca8113 tongue carcinoma cells. METHODS After construction of a full-length SEMA3F expression vector, Tca8113 cells were transient transfected with pEGFP-N1-SEMA3F by Lipofectamine 2000. The expression of SEMA-3F gene was detected by RT-PCR(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies show that microRNA-145 (miR-145) might be an attractive tumor biomarker of considerable prognostic value. To clarify the preliminary predictive value of miR-145 for prognosis in various malignant neoplasms, we conducted a meta-analysis of 18 relevant studies. METHODS Eligible studies were identified by searching the online(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of different jaw forward distance on forced inspiratory airflow(FIF) in non-apnea subjects and patients with obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and to evaluate the effective jaw forward distance for the treatment of OSAHS with the oral appliance. METHODS FIF was measured in 18 non-apnea subjects and 18 OSAHS(More)
BACKGROUND A modified radial forearm free flap was designed to rehabilitate function and to reduce the complications at both donor and recipient sites. METHODS Between 2003 and 2007, 15 patients with infiltrating squamous cell carcinoma (T(3)-T(4)) of the tongue and/or floor of the mouth underwent hemiglossectomy and resection of the floor of the mouth(More)
Tyroservatide (YSV) can inhibit the growth and metastasis of mouse lung cancer significantly. This study investigated the therapeutic effects of tripeptide YSV on metastasis of human lung cancer cells and explored its possible mechanism that affects integrin-focal adhesion kinase (FAK) signal transduction in tumor cells. YSV significantly inhibited the(More)
