This study is aimed to examine the removal of nitrogen from high strength slaughterhouse wastewater at 11 degreeC via partial nitrification followed by denitrification (PND), using the intermittently aerated sequencing batch reactor (IASBR) technology. The slaughterhouse wastewater contained chemical oxygen demand (COD) of 6068 mg/L, total nitrogen (TN) of(More)
This study evaluated the feasibility of endoscope-assisted partial–superficial parotidectomy through a concealed postauricular skin incision. Endoscope-assisted partial–superficial parotidectomy through a concealed postauricular skin incision was performed for 18 cases of benign tumor located in the superficial lobe of the parotid gland. All 18 operations(More)
BACKGROUND Although the association of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) with connective tissue disease (CTD) has been noted for a long time, there are few series reported. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to describe clinical features and prognosis of PCP infections in patients with CTD in China. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
This study evaluates the feasibility of endoscope-assisted second branchial cleft cyst resection via retroauricular approach by comparing it with conventional cervical incision for removal of second branchial cleft cyst. From January 2009 to December 2010, 25 patients were randomly assigned to the endoscope-assisted surgery group (13 patients) or the(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate the diagnosis and management of skull base osteoradionecrosis (ORN) after radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS The general information, clinical manifestations, and treatment outcomes were retrospectively evaluated in 15 patients with skull base ORN after radiotherapy for NPC. (More)
Inhibitor of differentiation (Id)-1 and nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) have been detected in many malignant tumors, and their presence has been correlated with the metastatic potential of these tumors. This study was undertaken to investigate the prognostic significance of the expression of Id-1 and the p65 subunit of NF-κB (NF-κB/p65) and the proteins'(More)
The transesterification of soybean oil with methanol to methyl esters was carried out using NaX zeolites loaded with KOH as a solid base catalyst. Best result was obtained with NaX zeolite loaded with 10% KOH, followed by heating at 393 K for 3 h. When the transesterification reaction was carried out at reflux of methanol (338 K), with a 10:1 molar ratio of(More)
This study investigated a wastewater treatment technique based on natural minerals. A two-step process using manganese (Mn) and magnesium (Mg) containing ores were tested to remove typical contaminants from coking wastewater. Under acidic conditions, a reactor packed with Mn ore demonstrated strong oxidizing capability and destroyed volatile phenols,(More)
At present, the photovoltaic performance of quantum dot-sensitized solar cells (QDSCs) is still much lower than conventional DSCs. Appropriate porous TiO(2) photoanodes for QDSCs need to be further investigated, and optimization of the nanoparticle-based photoanodes is highly desirable as well. In this article, the influence of the structural properties of(More)
The objective of this study was to avoid the nonrecurrent inferior laryngeal nerve (NRLN) injury during surgery, we performed preoperative CT examinations to determine the variation in abnormal course of the right subclavian artery as an indictor of the presence of the NRLN and used intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) to identify nerve. Preoperative(More)
