Short-term effects of radiofrequency shrinkage treatment for anterior cruciate ligament relaxation on proprioception.
Radiofrequency (RF) shrinkage is used in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The present study investigated the therapeutic effects of RF on ACL relaxation and the probable influencing factors. Patients with ACL relaxation were included. Participants were randomly divided into two group...
The effect of anaesthesia technique on maternal and cord blood ischaemia-modified albumin levels during caesarean section: A randomized cont...
Ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA) is an early marker for various ischaemic events, including cardiac ischaemia. This study determined variations in IMA levels during caesarean section, performed under general anaesthesia or with combined spinal epidural anaesthesia. Full-term, healthy pregnant women...
Early application of an intra-aortic balloon pump in patients with ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction scheduled for elective p...
I and II in the IABP group (11.5, 1.9 and 7.7%, respectively) were significantly lower than in the control group (29.1, 14.6 and 22.9%, respectively) before PCI. After PCI, the frequency of TIMI class III flow rate in the IABP group (96.2%) was significantly higher than that in the control group (81...

Immunohistochemical levels of matrix metalloproteinase-2 and CD44 variant 6 protein in the diagnosis and lateral cervical lymph node metasta...
To investigate the ability of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and CD44 variant 6 (CD44v6) protein levels to diagnose papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), compared with routine diagnostic methods using tissue sections; to explore the relationship between MMP-2 and CD44v6 protein levels and lymph node met...
The role of axon guidance factor semaphorin 6B in the invasion and metastasis of gastric cancer.
To investigate the role of semaphorin 6B in gastric cancer invasion and metastasis. Immunohistochemistry for semaphorin 6B was performed on gastric cancer tumour tissue samples in this retrospective study. Levels of semaphorin 6B protein and mRNA were determined in gastric cancer cell lines by Weste...
Clinical significance of protocadherin-8 (PCDH8) promoter methylation in bladder cancer.
To investigate the clinical significance of protocadherin-8 (PCDH8) promoter methylation in bladder cancer. Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction was used to examine the promoter methylation status of PCDH8 in tumour tissue samples obtained from patients with bladder cancer, and in normal b...
A rare midfoot injury pattern: navicular-cuneiform and calcaneal-cuboid fracture-dislocation.
A rare midfoot injury pattern of navicular-cuneiform and calcaneal-cuboid fracture-dislocation is presented with two typical cases and a systematic review of the literature. This injury usually occurs as a result of high-energy crushing trauma and most often causes plantarly directed...
