ABSTRACT Treatments for proximal humerus fractures (PHFs) often fail to achieve anatomical reduction. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of positive medial cortical support (PMCS) in the nonanatomical reduction of PHFs.A retrospective analysis was performed of 78 patients with PHFs who underwent surgery from August 2014 to September 2017 and whose treatments did not achieve anatomical reduction. Based on the results of standard AP radiographs of the shoulders 3, 6, and 12 months ...

BACKGROUND Osteonecrosis of the femeral head (ONFH) occurs predominantly in young- and middle-aged people, and the disability rate is high in the late stage of the disease and most patients have to undergo total hip replacement. Clinically, increasing attention is paid to intervening early and middle-stage ONFH so as to delay its progress. Acupuncture and moxibustion (AM) is a unique method for treating ONFH in China. This study aims to summarize the advantages of AM for the treatment of ONFH. M...

ABSTRACT Assessing renal function accurately is important for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients. Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) recommended three equations to calculate estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). There is evidence that eGFR based on the combination of serum creatinine and cystatin C is the most accurate of the three equations. But there is limited data on the comparison of three CKD-EPI equations ...

ABSTRACT This study evaluated the severe hepatic outcome (SHO) in patients with schizophrenia and viral hepatitis who received antipsychotics.Using the nationwide Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database, patients first diagnosed with schizophrenia between 2002 and 2013 were identified. Patients diagnosed with schizophrenia who had viral hepatitis, including hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV), were designated as the viral hepatitis group. A control group without viral h...
BACKGROUND There is no published meta-analysis comparing the effects of dialysis modality choice on cognitive functions in patients with end-stage renal disease .

ABSTRACT Percutaneous vertebroplasty (VP) and kyphoplasty (KP) are well-established minimally invasive surgical procedures for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCF). However, some drawbacks have been reported regarding these procedures, including height loss, cement leakage, and loss of the restored height after balloon deflation. We performed a novel VP technique to minimize these limitations of conventional procedures. This study aimed to compare radiological and...

BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) can work as microRNA (miRNA) sponges through a competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) mechanism. LncRNAs and miRNAs are important components of competitive endogenous binding, and their expression imbalance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is closely related to tumor development, diagnosis, and prognosis. This study explored the potential impact of the ceRNA regulatory network in HCC on the prognosis of HCC patients. METHODS We thoroughly researched the diff...
