OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to compare the diagnostic performance of gadobenate dimeglumine-enhanced MRI with that of 16-MDCT for the detection of hepatocellular carcinoma using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients with 53 hepatocellular carcinomas underwent gadobenate(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical characteristics and surgical outcomes of the patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy associated with athetoid cerebral palsy. METHODS The authors reviewed the clinical and neurodiagnostic findings, surgical managements and outcomes in six consecutive patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy associated with(More)
OBJECTIVE The predictors of cranioplasty infection after decompressive craniectomy have not yet been fully characterized. The objective of the current study was to compare the long-term incidences of surgical site infection according to the graft material and cranioplasty timing after craniectomy, and to determine the associated factors of cranioplasty(More)
PURPOSE To determine the technical efficacy and safety of a flared polyurethane-covered self-expandable nitinol stent in the management of malignant biliary obstruction and to evaluate its clinical efficacy by estimating stent patency and patient survival rates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen patients with common bile duct strictures (nonhilar) caused by(More)
This study was to evaluate the benefit of the screening of coronary artery stenosis (CAS) using dual-source CT (DSCT) in patients with cerebral infarction caused by a Large Artery Atherosclerosis (LAA). From November 2007 to February 2008, 34 patients (25 males and 9 females; mean age, 62.4 +/- 9.5 years) were enrolled. All of them had ischemic strokes of(More)

Resveratrol (trans-3,5,4'-trihydroxystilbene) has received considerable attention recently for the potential neuroprotective effects in neurodegenerative disorders where heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) represent promising therapeutic targets. Resveratrol has been known to increase HO-1 expression and SIRT1 activity. In this study, the effects(More)
