OBJECTIVE To evaluate the short-term outcomes of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) for thoracic tumors. METHODS The data of 1,790 consecutive patients were retrospectively reviewed. These patients underwent VATS pulmonary resections, VATS esophagectomies, and VATS resections of mediastinal tumors or biopsies at the Cancer Institute & Hospital,(More)
Consisted of beef extract (3 grams), peptone (10 grams), sodium chloride (5 grams), agar (20 grams) and distilled water, the solid medium was used with filter paper for cultivation of the larvae of Ancylostoma caninum. The method shows higher detection rate and simpler operation than the traditional test tube-filter paper culture technique.
OBJECTIVE To compare the short-term outcomes of surgical treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and open thoracotomy (OT). METHODS Data of 737 consecutive NSCLC patients who underwent surgical treatment for non-small cell lung cancer by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery and 630 patients who(More)

Five gram stool sample from dog infected with Ancylostoma caninum was smeared on filter paper for routine cultivation under 35 degrees C with moist condition for 24 hours. Hookworm larvae were separated and divided into 3 bottles through precipitation-washing method. Traditional Chinese medicine scorpion (2 ml), albendazole (10 mg) and normal saline (2 ml)(More)
Several approaches for parallel genotyping have been developed with increasingly available information on DNA variation. However, these methods require either complex laboratory procedures or expensive instrumentation. None of these procedures is readily performed in local clinical laboratories. In this study, we developed a flexible genotyping method(More)
