It is well established that the hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign is a specific marker for early ischemia in anterior circulation. However, little is known about the hyperdense basilar artery sign (HDBA) in posterior circulation. Our aim was to determine whether the HDBA sign has utility in early diagnosis of acute posterior circulation stroke and(More)
We here in describe a case of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) with acute cerebral infarction in a watershed distribution with lesions of the carotid artery but no damage to the endocardium or myocardium. A 62-year-old Chinese man complained of left-sided hemiparesis. Brain MR showed multiple areas of acute ischemia. The eosinophil count was 4.84 × 109/L,(More)
The lungs are naturally irregular and asymmetrical organ in anatomy. The conducting bronchial trees in the lungs display complex self-similar structure. We have established the host mesh coordinates of the right lung on the basis of the anatomical data from the literature. A three-dimensional fractal model of the conducting airways was set up by calculating(More)
Nanomaterials are extensively studied in electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems because of their structural advantages. However, their volumetric energy density still needs improvement due to the high surface area, especially the carbon based nanocomposites. Constructing hierarchical micro-scaled materials from closely stacked subunits is(More)
Based on the principles of the sheet-flow model, oxygen transport in pulmonary capillaries was considered as a process in which oxygen first enters plasma through the respiratory membranes, and then combines with the Hbc. A novel mathematical model about oxygen transport in pulmonary capillaries was established according to the relationship of the oxygen(More)
Highly porous hierarchical V2O5 cuboids have been synthesized by a template-free PVP-assisted polyxol method and the formation mechanism is studied. The cuboids are assembled from numerous mesoporous nanoplates and the preferred orientation of each single nanoplate exposes the 〈110〉 facets, facilitating lithium-ion diffusion by offering a prior channel.(More)
A three-element model of lumped parameter based on the statistic data of Weible's symmetric model and on the reference anatomic figures of the bronchial tree of the lungs has been proposed using the fluid network theory. It was assumed that the upper five or seven generations of the twenty-four generations of the respiratory airway are asymmetric, while the(More)
The convective-diffusive problems of oxygen and carbon dioxide in human airway at normal respiratory status were studied theoretically in the present paper. The human airway was idealized as a bifurcated(two-branch) trachea tree, based on the understanding of the physiological structure of the human airway, and on Horsfield-Wanner optimization analysis(More)
