ABSTRACT

Objective To study the clinical use of microwave scalpel in hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma without hepatic vascular inflow occlusion.Methods A retrospective study was conducted on the clinical data of 126 consecutive patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who were treated at the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery of the Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University from December 2015 to August 2018.The patients included 111 males and 15 females,with ages which ranged from 25 to 75 years.These patients were divided into two groups by the different surgical resection methods:the microwave scalpel hepatectomy (MSH) group which employed microwave scalpels to perform hepatectomy (n =42),and the ultrasound scalpel hepatectomy (USH) group which employed ultrasound scalpels (n =84).The perioperative conditions which included baseline data,amount of intraoperative bleeding,liver function after operation,and morbidity of postoperative complications were compared.Results There were no significant differences in the preoperative indexes which included tumor diameter,number of tumors,levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) between the 2 groups (all P > 0.05).In the MSH group,the amount of intraoperative bleeding was 100.0 (100.0,200.0) ml,which was significantly lower than the 300.0 (100.0,400.0) ml in the USH group (P < 0.05).Compared with the USH group,the levels of AST and ALT on postoperative day 1,3,7 after operation in the MSH group were significantly lower (all P < 0.05),and the corresponding albumin levels were significantly higher than the USH group (P <0.05).The incidence of complications was 4.8% (2/42) in the MSH group which was significantly lower than that of 20.2% (17/84) in the USH group (P < 0.05).Conclusion Microwave scalpel significantly reduced intraoperative bleeding and postoperative complications,and led to less liver functional injury.

ABSTRACT

This paper analyzed the feasibility of SPOC-mixed teaching in view of bottlenecks faced by the current health statistics curriculum, and deeply analyzed the limitations of traditional classroom teaching and network teaching only, as well as the advantages of SPOC-mixed teaching mode. At the same time, the construction of SPOC-mixed teaching mode of health statistics curriculum was explored from three aspects: teaching preparation, teaching implementation and teaching evaluation. It is hoped that the traditional teaching mode of "mainly teaching' "existed in health statistics will be transformed into a student-led and learning-based mode. According to each student's learning levels, professional background and cognitive style, individualized teaching was conducted to teach students in accordance with their ability, and promote the reform on traditional education concepts and teaching modes of health statistics.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To evaluate the feasibility and safety percutaneous pulmonary vein intervention in patients with severe pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) caused by fibrosing mediastinitis(FM).@*Methods@#This retrospective analysis included 5 FM patients (2 male, 3 female, 54-77 years old) confirmed by clinical presentation and chest computed tomography (CT) scan from January to June 2018 who were from Gansu Provincial Hospital and Shanghai Chest Hospital. CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) further revealed severe PVS caused by fibrotic tissue compression in mediastinum. After selective pulmonary vein angiography, gradually balloon angioplasty was used to expand the pulmonary vein and then stents were implanted in the pre-dilated stenotic pulmonary veins. Evaluation of therapeutic effect was made at 6 months after the procedure.@*Results@#All of 11 serious compression PVS were treated with stent implantation (diameter: 7-10 mm, length: 17-27 mm). After stenting, degree of pulmonary vein stenosis decreased from (83±16)% to (12±4)% (P<0.01). The minimal diameter of the stenotic pulmonary vein was significantly increased from (0.8±0.5)mm to (7.5±0.8)mm (P<0.01). Trans-stenotic gradient decreased from (27.0±15.1)mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa) to (2.50±0.58)mmHg (P<0.05). Mean pulmonary pressure measured by cardiac catheter decreased from (45.0±9.0)mmHg to (38.7±8.4)mmHg (P<0.05). One patient experienced cardiac arrest due to vagal nerve reflex during big sizing balloon stent dilation and recovered after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. There were no other serious procedure related complications. During the follow-up, severe stenosis at end of proximal stent was evidenced in 1 patient due to fibrotic compression, and another patient developed in-stent thrombosis due to discontinuation of prescribed anticoagulant.@*Conclusion@#Percutaneous intervention for severe pulmonary vein stenosis caused by FM is feasible and safe, and can improve hemodynamic caused by the compression of mediastinal vascular structures in these carefully selected patients.

ABSTRACT

To observe influences of Bushen Xingnao Decoction [BSXND] on expression of vascular endothelial growth factor [VEGF], IL-1beta and tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-alpha] in brain tissues and serum level of vascular dementia rats and to investigate neuroprotective mechanism of BSXND for vascular dementia. Wistar rats were randomly divided into normal group [N group], sham operation group [S group], dementia model group [M group] and Bushen Xingnao decoction treatment group [MT group]. After the model was successfully established, 2, 4, 6 weeks were regarded as observation point. Expressions of VEGF, IL-1beta and TNF-alpha in serum and brain of rat brain were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. The expressions of IL-1beta and TNF-alpha in MT group were lower than those in M group [P< 0.05], the expression of VEGF in MT group was higher than that in M group [P< 0.05]; the expressions of VEGF, IL-1beta and TNF-alpha in MT and M groups were higher than those in N and S groups [P<0.01]. BSXND can reduce the levels of IL-1beta and TNF-alpha in brain tissues and serum of vascular dementia rats and increase the expression of VEGF. BSXND can play cerebral protective role by suppressing the neuroinflammation response of vascular dementia rats and enhancing vascular repair

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the expression and significance of miRNAs and Th17 related cytokines in patients with multiple myeloma (MM).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A total of 27 MM patients and 8 health controls were enrolled in this study. The expression of miR-15a/16,miR-34a,miR-194-2-192 cluster and miR-181a/b in bone marrow were detected by real-time quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR). Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to determine the levels of Th17 related cytokines interleukin-17 (IL-17), IL-21, IL-22, IL-23 and IL-27 in peripheral blood plasma. The role of miRNAs and Th17 related cytokines was analyzed in the development of MM.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The expression of miR-15a/16,miR-34a,miR-194-2-192 cluster in MM patients were significantly lower than those of the health controls, while miR-181a/b were exactly the reverse (P<0.05). The levels of IL-17, IL-21 and IL-27 were up-regulated in MM patients compared to health controls while IL-22 was down-regulated (P<0.05). There was no significant difference of IL-23 between the two groups. The levels of miRNAs and Th17 related cytokines had associated with ISS but not with some clinical parameters (such as gender, age, disease classification). Higher expression of IL-17, IL-21, IL-23, IL-27, miR-181a/b and lower expression of miR-15a/16,miR-34a,miR-194 and IL-22 were observed in the end stage than the early stage of MM patients (P<0.05). There was a significant correlation between miRNAs and Th17 related cytokines.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Up-regulated IL-17, IL-21 and IL-27 may potentially down-regulate the expression of several miRNAs in MM patients. Establishment of the relationship may be useful for understanding the pathogenesis of MM and for clinical diagnosis of the disease.</p>

ABSTRACT

To clarify the function of miR-103 in the differentiation of porcine preadipocyte, we carried out real-time PCR to detect the expression pattern of miR-103 during adipogenesis, and clarified its expression tendency through cell differentiation. Then we used adenovirus that overexpressed miR-103 to infect porcine preadipocyte. Subsequently, mRNA and protein expression of adipogenesis marker--PPARgamma and aP2 was analyzed by real-time PCR and Western blotting. At last, Oil-Red O staining was used to detect lipids accumulation in the 8th day after adipogenic inducement. The expression of miR-103 increased during adipocyte differentiation; compared with the control, the preadipocyte infected by pAd-miR-103 had an elevated expression level of adipocyte marker gene PPARgamma, aP2, and obvious lipid droplet was seen in the 8th day after adipogenic inducement. These results showed that miR-103 can enhance adipogenesis in primary cultured porcine adipocytes.

ABSTRACT

Objective This study aimed to establish the leukemia mouse model by using EL4/DsRed cell line expressing red fluorescent protein (DsRed) and to evaluate the model. Methods After total body irradiation with X-ray of 7.0 Gy, C57BL/6 mice were inoculated 5×106 bone marrow cells mixed different numbers of EL4/DsRed cells via tail vein. The model was evaluated by flow cytometry (FCM), reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), and histopathology. Results The incidence of leukemia was 100 %. The presence of EL4/DsRed cells was found in liver, spleen, bone marrow and peripheral blood of recipients by FCM two weeks after transplantation. Pathological section revealed that all recipients had several organs infiltration apparently. With the increase in the number of inoculated tumor cells, the survival time of recipients was reduced and the infiltration of leukemia cells in organs was more serious. Conclusion Mouse leukemia model was successfully established when C57BL/6 mouse was intravenously transplanted with ≥5×102 EL4/DsRed cells. The model could be employed usefully in the future research such as the pathogenesis of leukemia and minimal residual disease (MRD).
