OBJECTIVES Despite the vascular compression of the seventh cranial nerve has been verified by the microvascular decompression surgery as the cause of hemifacial spasm (HFS), the mechanism of the disease is still unknown. We believe that the autonomic nervous system in adventitia of the offending artery may contribute to the HFS. To prove our hypothesis, we(More)
Microvascular decompression (MVD) has become the standard treatment for hemifacial spasm. As not all patients get complete relief, this strategy is still controversial. The study aimed to figure out how to tell the proper endpoint to the surgery. A series of 356 consecutive patients with hemifacial spasm were enrolled in this study. All patients fell into(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the lymphocyte infiltration induced by neural stem cell grafts in the traumatized brain. METHODS Sixty Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned randomly to transplantation (n = 30) or control (n = 30) groups, and each rat was subjected to brain contusion. The neural stem cells derived from Wistar rats were transplanted into the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the therapeutic effect of Bcl-2 fusion protein on apoptosis in brain following traumatic brain injury. METHODS Bcl-2 gene was cloned by RT-PCR. Bcl-2 and EGFP genes were linked together and inserted into pAdeno-X vector. This recombinant vector was packaged into infectious adenovirus in HEK293 cells. Ninety Wistar rats were(More)
The standard culture method for neural stem cells cannot prevent the attachment of neurospheres, which eventually result in differentiation. This study developed a new method for long-term neural stem cell cultivation. In the antiattachment group, neural stem cells were cultured in flasks coated with 1.5% agarose gel. As a control, cells were cultured in(More)
Although neurovascular confliction was believed to be the cause of hemifacial spasm (HFS), the mechanism of the disorder remains unclear to date. Current theories, merely focusing on the facial nerve, have failed to explain the clinical phenomenon of immediate relief following a successful microvascular decompression surgery (MVD). With the experience of(More)
This study aimed to investigate the mechanism of nimodipine-mediated neural repair after facial nerve crush injury in rats. Adult Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: healthy controls, surgery alone, and surgery plus nimodipine. A facial nerve crush injury model was constructed. Immediately after surgery, the rats in the surgery plus(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to introduce zone exploration of the trigeminal nerve and decompression techniques for different types of vasculars. METHODS The trigeminal nerve was sectioned into 5 zones. Zone 1, 2, 3, 4 was located at the rostral, caudal, ventral, and dorsal part of the nerve root entry zone (REZ) respectively, and zone 5 was located(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze retrospectively the clinical symptoms, signs, radiological findings and results of treatment of posttraumatic syringomyelia. METHODS The data of 7 patients with posttraumatic syringomyelia confirmed by computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in our hospital between 1999 and 2004 were reviewed retrospectively.(More)
AIM To explore the immunogenicity of mouse neural stem cells (NSCs), thus help to solve the problem of immunologic rejection in NSCs transplantation. METHODS (1) Thirty C57BL/6 mice were assigned randomly into two groups, then the two groups were immuned by intraperitoneal injection respectively with BALB/c mice's NSCs or hepatic cells (as control).(More)
