Similarities and Differences of Induced Membrane Technique Versus Wrap Bone Graft Technique.

Indian J Orthop 2020 Apr 24;54(2):156-163. Epub 2020 Jan 24.

1Department of Orthopaedics, Wuxi No. 9 People's Hospital Affiliated to Soochow University, No. 999 Liangxi Road, Wuxi, 214062 Jiangsu China.

Background: There are no reports on the similarities and differences between induced membrane (IM) technique and wrap bone graft(WBG) technique.

Objective: The aims of this study are to investigate the effects of IM technique and WBR technique in repairing segmental bone defects, and to analyze the similarities and differences between them.

Materials And Methods: 66 patients of tibial segmental bone defects treated by IM technique and WBG technique were retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Recurrence rates for patients with early-stage breast cancer treated with IOERT at a community hospital per the ASTRO consensus statement for APBI.

Brachytherapy 2019 Sep - Oct;18(5):651-657. Epub 2019 Jun 22.

The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment, St. Joseph Hospital, Orange, CA.

Purpose: To report the recurrence rates after single-fraction intraoperative electron radiotherapy (IOERT) in patients with early-stage breast cancer treated on a single institution prospective Phase I/II protocol at a community hospital. Results were retrospectively analyzed according to suitability criteria from the updated American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) consensus statement for accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI).

Methods And Materials: Patients over 40 years with early-stage invasive or in situ breast cancer (<2. Read More

Cell signaling and transcription factor genes expressed during whole body regeneration in a colonial chordate.

BMC Dev Biol 2008 Oct 12;8:100. Epub 2008 Oct 12.

Faculty of Biology, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.

Background: The restoration of adults from fragments of blood vessels in botryllid ascidians (termed whole body regeneration [WBR]) represents an inimitable event in the chordates, which is poorly understood on the mechanistic level.

Results: To elucidate mechanisms underlying this phenomenon, a subtracted EST library for early WBR stages was previously assembled, revealing 76 putative genes belonging to major signaling pathways, including Notch/Delta, JAK/STAT, protein kinases, nuclear receptors, Ras oncogene family members, G-Protein coupled receptor (GPCR) and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) signaling. RT-PCR on selected transcripts documented specific up-regulation in only regenerating fragments, pointing to a broad activation of these signaling pathways at onset of WBR. Read More

Long-term reliability of AAI mode pacing in patients with sinus node dysfunction and low Wenckebach block rate.

Europace 2008 Feb 16;10(2):134-7. Epub 2008 Jan 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Tottori University Hospital, 36-1 Nishimachi, Yonago 683-8504, Japan.

Aims: To compare the risk of atrioventricular (AV) conduction disturbance between patients with sinus node dysfunction on AAI pacing who had a low or high Wenckebach block rate (WBR).

Methods And Results: Patients with sinus node dysfunction and normal AV conduction those underwent an electrophysiological study were studied. The patients were classified into two groups: Group L was with the patients with a WBR of 100 to 129 per minute and Group H was with the patients with a WBR > or = 130 per minute. Read More
