Infected bone defect poses a great challenge for orthopedists because it is difficult to cure. Tissue-engineered bone based on the human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs), has currently taken a promising treatment protocol in clinical practice. In a previous study, a porous hydroxyapatite/fibronectin/alginate (PHA/FN/ALG) composite scaffold displayed favorable(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the treatment of carpal collapse using a four-corner arthrodesis concentrator of nickel-titanium memory alloy. METHODS From August 2006 to August 2010, 18 patients with carpal collapse had scaphoid excision and four-corner (capitate, lunate, triquetrum, and hamate) arthrodesis using a nickel-titanium memory alloy four-corner(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficiency of perforator pedicled propeller flaps for soft tissue coverage of lower leg and foot defects. METHODS Twenty patients (12 male, 8 females; mean age 28 years, range, 5-75) with soft tissue defects of the lower leg and foot were retrospectively reviewed. Their defects had been repaired with perforator pedicled(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression status of the P450arom mRNA in breast tissue of pubertal mammary hypertrophy and then explore the possible etiology of pubertal mammary hypertrophy. METHODS 15 patients were selected for pubertal mammary hypertrophy group. Breast hypertrophy tissue specimens were collected from the gland excised during reduction(More)
