OBJECTIVES A revised uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is reported for reducing the surgical complications without compromising the response. METHODS AND MATERIALS A new method of performing UPPP was designed, in which the uvula is preserved, but a larger portion of the soft palate is removed. This new procedure is called the 'revised UPPP with uvula(More)
AIM des-O-methyllasiodiplodin (DML) from Cerbera manghas has shown antagonistic activity against mineralocorticoid receptor (MR). Considering the involvement of MR in the insulin tolerance, we attempted to investigate the potential of DML in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technology and reporter(More)

Thirteen adult human larynges were studied by indirect lymphangiography to observe laryngeal lymphatic distributions. Results were as follows: (1) The laryngeal lymphatic system was composed of lymph capillaries and larger lymph vessels. (2) Laryngeal lymphatics had common ultrastructural characteristics of lymphatics elsewhere. (3) Based on lymphatic(More)
OBJECTIVE (1) To investigate the severe obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) patients' perioperative variations of their polysomnographic indices, to discuss the necessity for their perioperative treatment; (2) To investigate the effects of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on severe OSAHS patients during their perioperative period.

OBJECTIVE In order to investigate the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) METHOD: The improved uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) operations were performed on 64 cases. RESULT The clinical results showed that 70. Thirty-one percent of the operated patients somewhat improved and 29. Seventy percent unimproved. CONCLUSION UPPP is one of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the treatment methods and improve the curative effects of the juvenile onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis. METHOD Fourteen patients with juvenile onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis were treated from 2002 to 2003 by using microdebritor. RESULT Among the 14 cases, eight cases had no recurrence after three to six(More)
OBJECTIVE To introduce a new method for treating laryngeal stenosis of both children and adults using silicon T tube and CO2 laser. METHODS Twenty-two cases stenosis of adults and children were treated with silicon T tube and CO2 laser. The tracheotomy were enlarged upward, the laryngeal cavity scar was removed by using CO2 laser and the laryngeal cavity(More)
OBJECTIVE (1) To analyze upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) patients' polysomnographic characteristics, to lower the misdianosis of UARS. (2) To improve the understanding of UARS. METHODS (1) Select 12 UARS patients diagnosed by PSG and continuous esophageal pressure measurement, the sleep structure, arousal index, apnea hyponea index (AHI) were(More)
Based on the multi-model datasets of three representative concentration pathway (RCP) emission scenarios from IPCC5, the response of yield and accumulative evapotranspiration (ET) of winter wheat to climate change in the future were assessed by VIP model. The results showed that if effects of CO2 enrichment were excluded, temperature rise would lead to a(More)
