This study investigated the effects of β-elemene + methoxyamine, a DNA base-excision repair inhibitor, on the inhibition of glioma growth. We treated C6 and SHG44 glioma cells with β-elemene and methoxyamine individually or in combinations, and subsequently analyzed cellular survivals by MTT assay. Comet assay, γ-H2AX focus formation assay and Western-blot(More)
Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (SDAVFs) are the most common type of spinal arteriovenous malformations, and microsurgical ligation is the treatment modality most frequently used for these lesions. Developments in endoscopic techniques have made endoscopy an even less invasive alternative to routine microsurgical approaches in spine surgery, but(More)
Ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF) is a rare disease that causes acquired thoracic spinal canal stenosis and thoracic myelopathy. The aim of this study was to investigate clinical outcomes of symptomatic thoracic OLF treated using posterior decompressive laminectomy. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 22 patients who underwent(More)
The findings of clinical studies concerning the association between anthocyanins supplementation and blood pressure (BP) are inconsistent. In order to provide a more precise estimate of the overall effect of anthocyanins on systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), we conducted a meta-analysis of clinical trials about anthocyanins(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous endoscopic technique has been routinely used in the treatment of disk herniation while there are few reports on its application in the management of intraspinal tumors. We presented here the first case report of lumbar epidural angiolipoma that was totally removed by percutaneous endoscopy. CASE DESCRIPTION A 63-year-old man(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of radiofrequency-electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) from mobile phones on depression and anxiety after titanium mesh cranioplasty among patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS Two hundred and twenty patients with TBI and titanium mesh cranioplasty who were hospitalized from 2008-2012 were recruited in this(More)
INTRODUCTION Spinal subdural hematoma is rare and can cause serious neurological symptoms. Sometimes, idiopathic spinal subdural hematoma can spontaneously occur without any identifiable underlying etiologies. In this report, we present such an uncommon case of paraplegia caused by idiopathic spinal subdural hematoma that was successfully managed by(More)
OBJECT Posterior midline laminectomy or hemilaminectomy has been successfully applied as the standard microsurgical technique for the treatment of spinal intradural pathologies. However, the associated risks of postoperative spinal instability increase the need for subsequent fusion surgery to prevent potential long-term spinal deformity. Continuous efforts(More)
