Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is a common clinical disease that seriously threatens human health and life. Accurate location of the upper airway obstruction is the key to the diagnosis and treatment of OSAHS. Acoustic pharyngometry uses sound reflection to quickly assess the cross-sectional area and volume of the upper airway. Acoustic pharyngometry represents a simple, quick, non-invasive method for measuring upper airway dimensions which could predict sleep apnea risk. In this article we sought to introduce the application of acoustic pharyngometry in the diagnosis and treatment of OSAHS.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the therapeutical effect and side-effect of docetaxel combined with cisplatin (DDP) on the treatment of local advanced esophageal cancer with concomitant radiation therapy.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Ninety patients with LOCAL advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma were divided into two groups: (DDP + 5-Fu) group and (docetaxel + DDP) group. Chemotherapy was carried out every 4 weeks for a total of 4 courses. The radiation dose was 50.4 Gy/28FX.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The median survival time of patients in the (DDP + 5-Fu) group was 16 months and that in (docetaxel + DDP) group was 21 months (P = 0.0278). The 3-year survival rate in the (docetaxel + DDP) group was obviously higher than that in the (DDP + 5-Fu) group (23.9% vs. 12.1%). The ORR in (docetaxel + DDP) group (84.5%) was significantly higher than that in the (DDP + 5-Fu) group (71.1%) (P = 0.025). No significant differences were observed in the incidence of side-effects in the two groups.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The conventional dose chemotherapy of docetaxel + DDP with concomitant radiation therapy showed a better partial remission rate and long-term survival rate for the treatment of local advanced esophageal cancer than the traditional chemotherapy (DDP + 5-Fu) with concomitant radiation therapy and the side-effects are not increased.</p>

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To search for a better therapy for prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disk.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>One hundred and sixteen cases were randomly divided into a treatment group treated with round sharp needle plus massage, and a control group with filiform needle plus massage, 58 cases in each group. Changes of symptoms and signs were observed before and after treatment.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The effective rate was 98.2% in the treatment group and 82.8% in the control group (P < 0.01).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Round sharp needle combined with massage has a better therapeutic effect on prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disk.</p>

Purpose: Observe the varities of lymphocyte subgroup of patients suffering from primary hepatic carcinoma ( PHC) during the treatment by hepatic arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and Hyperthemia Peritoneal Perfusion (THPP). Methods: Twenty seven patients were treated with TACE and THPP a week after TACE. We tested for lymphocyte subgroup three times with the flow cytometry (FCM) for pre-TACE, post-TACE and THPP a month later. The control group, twenty seven patients, were also tested for lymphocyte subgroup three times with the TACE. Results: The lymphocyte subgroup among the patients suffering from PHC were disordered. CD4+,CD4+/CD8+.CD19+NK+ were decreased, (P
