A subanalysis from a prospective, multicenter, international cohort study in 15 sites (Scoli-RISK-1).
This article was published in the following journal.
This systematic review aimed to investigate complications related to initial trocar insertion between three different laparoscopic techniques: Veress needle (VN) entry, direct trocar entry (DTE), and ...
Neurological soft signs (NSS) are a group of minor non-localizable neurological abnormalities found more often in patients with schizophrenia. The aim of the current study was investigate whether ther...
Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are often observed in Parkinson's disease (PD); however, their association with cognitive decline has been unclear. We performed a retrospective analysis of 124 cases of cl...
Although large series of laparoscopic resections for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were published, reports of laparoscopic major hepatectomy (LMH) are still limited in expert centers because LMH for ...
The biological activities of ginseng saponins (ginsenosides) are associated with type, number, and position of sugar moieties linked to aglycone skeletons. Deglycosylated minor ginsenosides are known ...
The investigators conducted a prospective study to determine the safety and efficacy of minor and major hepatectomy selected by predetermined criteria in 138 patients with hilar cholangioc...
The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate major and minor neurologic events in patients undergoing right mini-thoracotomy mitral valve surgery and to compare different aortic ...
Deliberate hypotension, reverse Trendelenburg position, and hyperventilation are techniques utilized during functional endoscopic sinus surgery to attempt to reduce surgical bleeding. Thes...
Ineffective hemostasis or a paradoxical prothrombotic state of Acute-on-chronic liver disease (ACLF) has been well established. However, the minor and major bleeding events has not been de...
The purpose of this research study is to assess the feasibility of a combined primary care/web-based depression prevention intervention. Primary care physicians (PCP) currently lack an al...
Recesses of the kidney pelvis which divides into two wide, cup-shaped major renal calices, with each major calix subdivided into 7 to 14 minor calices. Urine empties into a minor calix from collecting tubules, then passes through the major calix, renal pelvis, and ureter to enter the urinary bladder. (From Moore, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, 3d ed, p211)
Allelic alloantigens often responsible for weak graft rejection in cases when (major) histocompatibility has been established by standard tests. In the mouse they are coded by more than 500 genes at up to 30 minor histocompatibility loci. The most well-known minor histocompatibility antigen in mammals is the H-Y antigen.
Genetic loci responsible for the encoding of minor lymphocyte stimulatory antigens. There are at least two unlinked loci (in the mouse) and they appear to be separate from the MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX and MINOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY LOCI. The mouse mammary tumor virus (see MAMMARY TUMOR VIRUS, MOUSE) has the ability to integrate into these loci. The antigens induce strong T-cell proliferative responses in mixed lymphocyte reactions.
A group of antigens that includes both the major and minor histocompatibility antigens. The former are genetically determined by the major histocompatibility complex. They determine tissue type for transplantation and cause allograft rejections. The latter are systems of allelic alloantigens that can cause weak transplant rejection.
A major alkaloid of Vinca minor L., Apocynaceae. It has been used therapeutically as a vasodilator and antihypertensive agent, particularly in cerebrovascular disorders.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
