Minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS TLIF) has become an increasingly popular method of lumbar arthrodesis. However, there are few published studies comparing the clinical outcomes between unilateral and bilateral instrumented MIS TLIF. Sixty-five patients with degenerative lumbar spine disease were enrolled in this study.(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of minimally invasive versus open transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion in two-level degenerative lumbar disease. We conducted a prospective cohort study of 82 patients, who underwent two-level minimally invasive or open transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) from March(More)
1. The goose major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class IIB cDNA (Ancy-MHCII) was cloned by homology cloning and rapid amplification of cDNA ends by polymerase chain reaction (RACE-PCR), and the genomic structure and tissue expression were investigated. 2. Three different 5'-RACE sequences (Ancy-MHC II5'-1, Ancy-MHC II5'-2, Ancy-MHC II5'-3), one 3'-RACE(More)
The application of in vitro engineered cartilage has become a promising approach to repair cartilage defects. Nevertheless, the poor mechanical properties of in vitro engineered cartilage limit its potential for clinical applications. Studies have shown that the extracellular matrix (ECM) components are strongly correlated with the mechanical strength of(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the clinical characteristics and radiological features of solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) and assess surgical therapy strategy. METHODS A retrospective review was performed in 62 patients pathologically confirmed of SPT treated between 2003 and 2014. The clinical features, radiological examinations and surgical strategies were(More)
Limited-oxygen mediated synergistic relationships between sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB), nitrate-reducing bacteria (NRB) and sulfide-oxidizing bacteria (SOB, including nitrate-reducing, sulfide-oxidizing bacteria NR-SOB) were predicted to simultaneously remove contaminants of nitrate, sulfate and high COD, and eliminate sulfide generation. A lab-scale(More)
Cancer neovascularization plays a key role in the metastasis of larynx carcinoma. However, the molecular mechanism for the neovascularization control in larynx carcinoma is poorly understood. Since placental growth factor (PLGF) has been reported to be involved in pathological angiogenesis, and since matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are essential for(More)
Along with wide application of e-mail nowadays, many spam e-mails flood into people's email inboxes and bring catastrophe to their study and work. This paper presents a novel anti-spam e-mail filter based-LVQ network in terms of spam e-mails which are mainly made up of several kinds commercial or political spam emails at present. Our experiment has proved(More)
