STUDY DESIGN Anatomical measurement. OBJECTIVE To obtain quantitative anatomical data on each spinal cord segment in human, and determine the presence of correlations between the measures. SETTING Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Pusan National University Hospital, Pusan, Korea. METHODS A total of 15 embalmed Korean adult human cadavers (13(More)
As a part of Mussel Watch Program in Korea, the contamination levels and accumulation features of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) were assessed for 82 bivalve samples collected from 66 sites along the entire coast of Korea. The dry weight based sigmaPCBs and sigmaOCPs ranged from 4.4 ng g(-1) to 422.0 ng g(-1)(More)
STUDY DESIGN This is a cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to characterize the diffusion properties across segments of the spinal cord and peak cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) velocities in the stenotic spinal canal, and to determine the correlation between these properties and clinical and electrophysiological parameters in patients(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. OBJECTIVES To identify factors associated with the development of early onset post-traumatic syringomyelia within 5 years of spinal cord injury. SETTING Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Pusan National University School of Medicine, Korea. METHODS We retrospectively examined the records of 502 patients with(More)
A hybrid nanogel has been developed based on interpenetrating networks of thermosensitive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) gels and tailored nanoporous silica. A sustainable positive thermo-responsive drug release profile is obtained. When the temperature rises, the polymer gel shrinks, squeezing the drug into the porous channels, and at the same time, opening(More)
Accumulation of tributyltin (TBT) was determined in liver of olive flounder exposed to TBT (3.65, 36.5, 365, 3,650, and 7,300 ng Sn/L) for 10 or 30 days, followed by 60 days depuration. Effect of TBT on hepatic cytochrome P450 content was also measured in liver of olive flounder. TBT was highly accumulated in liver of fish during the 10- to 30-day(More)
STUDY DESIGN Histological examination of human spinal ventral roots. OBJECTIVES To determine the proportion of unmyelinated fibers in human ventral roots from the 4th cervical (C4) to 2nd sacral (S2) segment, and to evaluate differences in the proportions of unmyelinated fibers between the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral segments, and between(More)
