Since the fast expansion of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) over last few decades, small-for-size syndrome (SFSS) has emerged as a tough problem. Herein the first case of LDLT combined hemi-portocaval shunt in the mainland of China was reported. Portal venous over perfusion was well modulated and the recipient recovered uneventfully. LDLT combined(More)
AIM To determine whether the outcomes of laparoscopic fenestration (LF) were superior to open fenestration (OF) for congenital liver cysts. METHODS Comparative studies published between January 1991 and May 2010 on Medline (Ovid), Emsco, PubMed, Science Direct; Cochrane Reviews; CNKI; Chinese Biomedical Database, VIP and other electronic databases were(More)
Our previous studies have showed that chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) was over-expressed in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). However, the mechanism underlying aberrant CXCR4 expression remains unclear. To investigate the roles played by miRNAs in CXCR4 over-expression in LSCC, putative miR-139 was predicted through computational algorithms, including(More)
Nanoparticles composed of galactosylated chitosan (GC) and tripolyphosphate (TPP) were prepared and their application as potential gene carriers for targeting SMMC7721 cells was investigated. The results showed that at certain pH (5.5-6.2) of GC solutions, small and stable nanoparticles were obtained at an optimal weight ratio of 5:1 (GC/TPP). Transmission(More)
AIM Determination of first line treatment with limited hepatectomy or Anatomical hepatectomy provides better clinical outcome. METHODS Immediate and long-term outcomes of 106 patients who underwent partial hepatectomy for RH at our institution from January 2001 to February 2005 were analyzed retrospectively. Clinical end-points included time to recovery(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To analyze the relationship between laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) represented by pepsin and pepsinogen, and pathogenesis of otitis media with effusion (OME). STUDY DESIGN Prospective case-control study. METHODS Children with OME who required adenoidectomy and tympanostomy/tympanostomy tubes placement were enrolled in OME group,(More)
