Inhalation or aspiration of a foreign body (FB) occurs relatively frequently in young children. The size, shape, type and site of arrest of the FB lead to variability in the clinical picture. The present study included data from 65 cases of FB inhalation presenting over 1 year at the Children's ...
Serum levels of endoglin were measured in pre-eclamptic women in their third trimester and in women in their second trimester who later developed pre-eclampsia. Placental levels of endoglin at birth were also determined in pre-eclamptic women and healthy controls. Serum endoglin was significantl...
Nutritional profiling is defined as 'the science of categorizing foods according to their nutritional composition' and it is useful for food labelling and regulation of health claims. The evidence for the link between nutrients and health outcomes was reviewed. A reduced salt intake reduces bloo...
Because of the increased use of modern radiofrequency devices, public concern about the possible health effects of exposure to microwave radiation has arisen in many countries. It is well established that high-power microwave radiation can induce cataracts via its thermal effects. It remains unc...
This prospective randomized study compared the clinical and radiological results of primary total knee arthropasty (TKA) using a mini-subvastus approach (group I; n = 35) or a standard approach (group II; n = 33). A posterior-stabilized prosthesis was used in both groups by the same surgeon. Mea...
This study was designed to investigate whether there is a correlation between the down-regulation of microRNA-218 (miR-218) and the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer. The participants comprised 78 women with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia...
Ten rabbits implanted with VX2 liver tumours were investigated by perfusion computed tomography (PCT) imaging 1 week (early) and 2 weeks (late) after tumour induction; 10 other rabbits were non-implanted controls. Time-density curves, perfusion parametric maps and perfusion parameters were obtai...
Naphthalene-induced cataract has been extensively used to test potential anticataract drugs. Because the morphology as well as the toxic manifestations of naphthalene-induced cataract are reported to be similar to that of age-related cataract, naphthalene cataractogenesis in rats has been used a...
This study was designed to evaluate the correlation between blood flow, using colour power Doppler flow imaging [CPDI], and protein levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), as measured by optical density (OD), in breast tumours. Breast cancer patients were observed pre-operatively us...
The aim of this study was to develop an improved binary logistic regression model for predicting the risk of intracranial aneurysm rupture. A cohort of patients (n=37) with aneurysms underwent three-dimensional digital subtraction angiography examination to measure several morphological paramete...
