One main problem associated with alveolar bone augmentation in implant dentistry is resorption of grafted bone, which may be further compromised by systemic skeletal disorders such as osteoporosis. Zoledronate acid (ZOL) is the most potent bisphosphonate to treat osteoporosis and therefore it is hypothesized to be able to invert the negative effect of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical effects of sartorius tendon transposition versus sartorius transposition during bilateral inguinal lymphadenectomy of radical vulvectomy. METHODS A total of 58 vulvar cancer patients who had surgery from May 2007 to October 2013, in which 30 patients received sartorius transposition and 28(More)
OBJECTIVE A set of cell proliferation-related molecular markers was used to detect the differences in proliferative activity between benign pleomorphic adenoma (PA) and carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA). STUDY DESIGN Seventy samples comprising 53 PAs, 10 noninvasive and 7 widely invasive (WI) CXPAs were selected. Immunohistochemical staining was(More)
BACKGROUND This study assessed the survival outcomes and recurrent patterns in pelvic node-positive IB1-IIA2 cervical cancer patients treated with postoperative external beam irradiation with or without vaginal brachytherapy. METHODS The records of 1149 cervical cancer patients received radical surgery between February 2008 and March 2010 were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of alendronate on the expressions of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand (RANKL) in mouse osteoblasts. METHODS Mouse calvarial osteoblasts cultured in vitro were identified by alkaline phosphatase (ALP) staining and immunofluorescence assay of OPG and RANKL expressions. The second(More)
