BACKGROUND: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, total disk replacement and open door laminoplasty have been widely used to treat patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy and/or radiculopathy. In our clinical practice, many patients with cervical spondylosis also complain of headache, and wish to know if the surgical treatment for cervical spondylosis can also alleviate this symptom. Considering that there is no literature concerning this extra benefit of surgical manipulation on cervical spondylosis, we have carried out this retrospective study...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of high expression of recombinant trichosanthin (rTCS) on the cell proliferation and cell cycle of human cervical cancer Caski cells. METHOD: Eukaryotic expression plasmid pcDNA3.1(-)/6His-TCS was constracted and stably transfected into Caski cells. RT-PCR,Western-blot were used to select the clones with rTCS high-expressing. Using pcDNA3.1(-)-transfected cells as the control, MTT assay and flowcytometry were used to elucidate the effects of rTCS high expression on cell growth and cycle regulation in Caski cells...

In this study we evaluated efficacy and toxicity of a neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen before radiation therapy or surgery in high-risk cevical cancer patients. Between January 1988 and July 1993, 37 out of 40 consecutive patients with bulky cervical carcinoma (>40 mm) received chemotherapy consisting of six (range 4-9) weekly courses of cisplatin (1 mg/kg), followed by radical surgery and/or radiotherapy. Thirty-six patients completed the planned sequence of treatment. Overall response rate was 65% after induction chemotherapy (complete 0% and partial 65%) and 73% (complete 57% and partial 16%) after definitive treatment...

AIM OF THE STUDY: To further screen out the anti-tumor active compound of polysaccharides isolated from Solanum nigrum Linne (SNL-P), which had shown to have anti-cervical cancer and modulating properties, and evaluate the thymus protective effects of this active compound. MATERIAL AND METHODS: SNL-P was separated and purified by column chromatography, and its anti-cervical cancer activity was evaluated by mice models injected of ascites U14 cells. Furthermore, the protective effect of fraction 1a of SNL-P (SNL-P1a) on the thymus tissue of tumor-bearing mice was evaluated by histological study and TUNEL staining...

A very simple strategy for the construction of 2,3-benzofused 8-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane derivatives is reported. This new process is based on a platinum-catalyzed tandem intramolecular hydroalkoxylation-hydroarylation reaction of aryl-substituted pentynol derivatives. This reaction has been applied in the key step of the total synthesis of bruguierol A, allowing the synthesis of this natural product in a very straightforward manner.

A rarely diagnosed etiology of dysphagia is a pharyngeal diverticula occurring after anterior cervical fusion. Here we review 2 cases where patients developed pharyngeal diverticula following anterior cervical fusion. The first patient was a 28-year-old female who presented with regurgitation following C5 through C6 cervical fusion. She was diagnosed with a pharyngeal diverticulum and underwent open repair, but began to experience symptoms again a few months later. A barium swallow showed a recurrent pharyngeal diverticulum...

Pressure pattern analysis of Queckenstedt test was performed to detect the partial subarachnoidal block in patients with spinal or dural canal stenosis. The Queckenstedt test was performed by lumbar puncture when the patient was in lateral recumbent posture with bilateral jugular compression in three different neck positions; neutral, flexion and extension. Lumbar subarachnoidal pressure was visually measured each successive 5 seconds during a 30 second period of jugular compression, followed by a succession of 5 second measurements for 30 seconds after release of compression...

A chromatolysis study, 14 to 21 days following denervation, showed the spinal cord representation of the nerve to the posterior latissimus dorsi muscle to be in the ventrolateral cell column between cervical ganglia 14 and 15. to characterize cevical neruos nt undergoing chromatolysis, histochemical stuies were done the cords of additional nondenervated animals. Staining reactions for beta-hydrocybutyrate dehydrogenase, succinic dehydrogenase and cholinesterase did not reveal any quantitative differences between motor neurons in cervical segments 14 and 15 of normal and dystrophic birds...

An analysis of 2346 paraplegics treated in the Heidelberg University orthopaedic hospital showed that 194 of the lesions (= 8,3%) were caused by accidents during sports and bathing. Of 123 bathing accidents, 98.4% produced a lesion of the cevical part of the medulla, the site of paresis being mostly below C 5 or C 6. The predominant accident mechanism of the most frequently occurring luxation fractures was hyperextension and hyperflexion. 71 of the 194 cases (= 36,6%) were genuine sports accidents. 35 cases of tetraplegia occured preferably during gymnastics, jumping on the trampoline, and high-tower diving, whereas 36 paraplegias were due to accidents during riding, skiing and mountaineering...
