OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess mitral valve function after repair of ventricular septal defect (VSD) combined with mitral regurgitation (MR) in the mid-term follow-up period, to evaluate the clinical utility of simultaneous mitral valve repair (MVR). METHODS: From June 2005 to March 2014, 60 patients with VSD and MR underwent surgical treatment. After performing propensity score analysis (1:1) for the entire sample, 46 patients were selected and divided into 2 groups: those with VSD closure and MVR (VSD + MVR, 23 patients) and those with VSD closure without mitral valve intervention (VSD only, 23 patients)...

With the onset and progression of osteoarthritis (OA), articular cartilage (AC) mechanical properties are altered. These alterations can serve as an objective measure of tissue degradation. Although the mouse is a common and useful animal model for studying OA, it is extremely challenging to measure the mechanical properties of murine AC due to its small size (thickness < 50 um). In this study, we developed novel and direct approach to independently quantify two quasi-static mechanical properties of mouse AC: the load-dependent (non-linear) solid matrix Young's modulus (E) and drained Poisson ratio (v)...

Hydrophilic interaction (HILIC)/reversed-phase (RPLC) mixed-mode chromatography is widely used in separating both hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds, but its pH range is limited which is harmful to the separation of alkaline drugs. Monodispersed and porous cysteine-modified vinyl functionalized polymethylsilsesquioxane (C-V-PMSQ) microspheres were prepared by thiol-ene click chemistry. Elemental analysis revealed that cysteine was successfully bonded to the surface of microspheres. C-V-PMSQ microspheres had excellent monodispersity, favorable chemical stability and simple preparation process...

Solid tumors can generate a plethora of neurogenesis-related molecules that enhance their growth and metastasis. Among them, we have identified axonal guidance molecule Semaphorin 7A (SEMA7A) in breast cancer. The goal of this study was to determine the therapeutic effect of suppressing SEMA7A levels in the 4T1 murine model of advanced breast carcinoma. We used anti-SEMA7A short hairpin RNA (shRNA) to gene silence SEMA7A in 4T1 mammary tumor cells. When implanted into the mammary fat pads of syngeneic mice, SEMA7A shRNA-expressing 4T1 tumors exhibited decreased growth rates, deferred metastasis and reduced mortality...

Tobacco smoking by young people is of great concern because it usually leads to regular smoking, nicotine addiction and quitting difficulties. Young people "hooked" by tobacco maintain the profits of the tobacco industry by replacing smokers who quit or die. If new generations could be tobacco-free, as supported by tobacco endgame strategies, the tobacco epidemic could end within decades. Smoking prevention programmes for teens are offered by schools with the aim to prevent or delay smoking onset. Among these, the Smoke Free Class Competition (SFC) was widely implemented in Europe...

The spectral nonlinearity of an inverse-layer-type silicon (Si) photodiode (PD) in the visible region was investigated. As expected by theoretical calculation, supralinearity and saturation of the Si PD, which are key factors of nonlinearity, were suppressed by applying a reverse voltage above 30 V. Experimentally observed nonlinear behavior depending on the reverse bias was compared to a theoretical model describing supralinearity, including the inner parameters of the Si PD, and these comparison results were in agreement...

We propose and investigate an ultra-compact air-mode photonic crystal nanobeam cavity (PCNC) with an ultra-high quality factor-to-mode volume ratio (Q/V) by quadratically tapering the lattice space of the rectangular holes from the center to both ends while other parameters remain unchanged. By using the three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method, an optimized geometry yields a Q of 7.2×10(6) and a V∼1.095(λ/nSi)(3) in simulations, resulting in an ultra-high Q/V ratio of about 6.5×10(6)(λ/nSi)(-3)...

Benefiting from close to ideal amplification properties (high gain, low dark current, and low excess noise factor), HgCdTe electron initiated avalanche photodiode (e-APD) technology exhibits state of the art sensitivity, thus being especially relevant for applications relying on low light level detection, such as LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging). In addition, the tunable gap of the Hg1-xCdxTe alloy enables coverage of the short wavelength infrared (SWIR) and especially the 2 μm spectral range. For these two reasons, a HgCdTe e-APD based detector is a promising candidate for future differential absorption LIDAR missions targeting greenhouse gas absorption bands in SWIR...
