BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to introduce an advanced technique for the best living donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) using the hanging maneuver by Glisson's approach under an upper midline incision. METHODS From January 2005 to February 2010, a total of 196 consecutive LDRHs have been performed at the National Cancer Center, Korea. To assess the(More)
BACKGROUND In rotator cuff repair, no practical guidelines exist for deciding which technique is the most beneficial to outcomes. PURPOSE To determine which of 2 repair techniques, the single-row (SR) and double-row suture bridge (DR-SB) methods, leads to better therapeutic outcomes in terms of remnant tendon length in patients with larger than(More)
A multiplex PCR protocol was established to simultaneously detect major bacterial pathogens in olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) including Edwardsiella (E.) tarda, Streptococcus (S.) parauberis, and S. iniae. The PCR assay was able to detect 0.01 ng of E. tarda, 0.1 ng of S. parauberis, and 1 ng of S. iniae genomic DNA. Furthermore, this technique was(More)
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) have been observed in cells exposed to a variety of stresses, including infectious pathogens. This study used a label-free, quantitative proteomic approach and transcriptional gene expression analysis to investigate infection-related HSP proteins and their encoding genes in whole kidneys from olive flounder (Paralichthys(More)
UNLABELLED Twenty-two patients (24 shoulders) had a scapulothoracic arthrodesis for various clinical disorders including facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, scapular winging from serratus anterior palsy, painful scapular crepitation, and cleidocranial dysostosis. All patients were extremely disabled with pain and loss of function because of their(More)
Regulation of intracellular pH (pHi) was studied in isolated rat renal inner medullary thin limbs of Henle's loop in bicarbonate/phosphate-buffered medium with high pCO2, high osmolality ( congruent with670 mosmol/kg H2O; 270 mM urea; 180 mM NaCl), organic osmolytes, and a pH of 6.8 to approximate the physiological in vivo environment. The pH-sensitive(More)
The learning and memory impairment of presenilin 2 transgenic mice was mentioned previously. In this study, exposing the presenilin 2 transfected PC12 cells to the 50 microM Abeta(25-35), 30 mM l-glutamate and 50 microM H(2)O(2) resulted in significant increase 8-oxodG and p53 levels of the cells expressing the mutant gene. The increase was also found in(More)
A presenilin 2 mutation is believed to be involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease. In addition, transgenic mice with a presenilin 2 mutation have been reported to have learning and memory impairments. In this study, exposing PC12 cells expressing mutant presenilin 2 to 50 microM AP25-35, 30 mM L-glutamate and 50 microM H2O2 caused a significant(More)
Living donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) is currently the most common donor surgery in adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation although the morbidity and mortality reported in living donors still contradicts the Hippocratic tenet of "do no harm". Achieving low complication rates in LDRH remains a matter of major concern. Living donor surgery is(More)
