Neural disturbances are observed in the peripheral and central nervous systems of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and non-IDDM (NIDDM). Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are neurotrophic growth factors that can support nerve regeneration and neuronal survival in the types of neurons known to be afflicted in diabetes. We tested the(More)
Diabetic encephalopathy, characterized by structural, electrophysiological, neurochemical, and cognitive abnormalities, is observed in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and non-IDDM (NIDDM). Identification of early biochemical lesions potentially may provide clues pointing to its pathogenesis. Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are neurotrophic(More)
BACKGROUND The prognosis for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) is extremely poor. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of transarterial ethanol ablation (TEA) for the treatment of HCC with PVTT. METHODS Patients were treated with TEA for PVTT under cone-beam computed tomography and(More)
