OBJECTIVES The aim of the study is to assess the clinical value of 16-row multislice computed tomographic angiography (CTA) for detection and treatment of intracranial aneurysms. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2005 and October 2008, 388 patients were included and successively underwent 16-slice CTA for suspected intracranial aneurysms. Three(More)
BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma associated gene 6 (NGX6) is down-regulated in most colon cancer cell lines and tumor tissues when compared with their normal tissue samples. As a novel suppress tumor gene, it could inhibit colon cancer cell growth and cell cycle progression. However, little is known about the transcriptional mechanisms controlling NGX6(More)
BACKGROUND Sixteen-row multislice CT has great potential for use in vascular studies. The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of 16-row multislice CTA in detecting intracranial aneurysms compared with 2D-DSA and surgical findings. METHODS One hundred fifty-two consecutive patients were included in the study and successively underwent(More)
Astrocytomas are common malignant intracranial tumors that comprise the majority of adult primary central nervous system tumors. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs (20-24 nucleotides) that post-transcriptionally modulate gene expression by negatively regulating the stability or translational efficiency of their target mRNAs. In our previous(More)
OBJECTIVE Many cases of subarachnoid hemorrhage are the result of rupture of small cerebral aneurysms. The aim of the study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of 16-row multislice computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in detecting small cerebral aneurysms (<or=5 mm) compared with digital subtraction angiography (DSA), surgical findings, or both.

BACKGROUND Sixty-four-row multislice computed tomographic angiography (CTA) has great potential for use in vascular studies. The aim of our study was to compare 64-slice CTA with three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) in the detection and characterization of intracranial aneurysms with special attention to smaller (<3-mm) aneurysms. METHODS In a(More)
BACKGROUND Sixteen-row multislice CTA has great potential for use in the studies of intracranial aneurysms. The aim of the study was to assess the clinical application of 16-row multislice CTA in the preoperative and postoperative evaluation of intracranial aneurysms for surgical clipping. METHODS A total of 42 patients (45 aneurysms) underwent surgery(More)
OBJECT The goal of this study was to prospectively compare the effectiveness of 16-slice computed tomography (CT) angiography with that of conventional digital subtraction (DS) angiography and the surgical findings used to detect and characterize intracranial aneurysms. METHODS Two hundred forty-four consecutive patients underwent both CT angiography and(More)
Given that the elevated serum semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) activity is associated with the severity of carotid atherosclerosis in clinic, the current study aims to investigate whether SSAO inactivation by semicarbazide is beneficial for established atherosclerotic lesions in LDLr knockout mice on a high-fat/high- cholesterol Western-type(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular mechanical thrombectomy is emerging as a promising therapeutic approach for acute ischemic stroke and show some advantages. However, the data of predicting clinical outcome after thrombectomy with Solitaire retriever were limited. We attempt to identify prognostic factors of clinical outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke(More)
