Microbubbles in combination with focused ultrasound for the delivery of quercetin-modified sulfur nanoparticles through the blood brain barrier into the brain parenchyma and relief of endoplasmic reticulum stress to treat Alzheimer's disease.
The delivery of drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) effectively and safely is one of the major challenges in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. In this work, we constructed a nano-system using microbubbles to promote the crossing of drugs across the BBB, where microbubbles in combination with focused ultrasound were used to mediate the transient opening of the BBB and delivery of nanomedicines. This system (Qc@SNPs-MB) was formed by embedding quercetin-modified sulfur nanoparticles (Qc@SNPs...
The objective of this study was to assess the tolerability and efficacy of ultrasound-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (USgHIFU) ablation using a Haifu JC Focused Ultrasound Tumor Therapeutic System (operating transducer frequency: 0.8 MHz, 300-400 W/cm) under real-time ultrasound guidance (2.5- to 5.0-MHz imaging probe) for uterine fibroids and adenomyosis in 1807 patients (928 with fibroids and 889 with adenomyosis). Volume change and clinical symptom improvement after treatment were evaluated bas...
The pathomechanism of C5 palsy after cervical open-door laminoplasty is unknown despite the relatively common occurrence of this condition postoperatively. The aim of this study was to review clinical and imaging findings in patients with C5 palsy and to propose countermeasures for prevention of this complication.
Little is known about the components and contributing factors of door-to-balloon time after implementation of Door-to-Balloon Alliance quality-improving (QI) strategies, including the impact of door-to-ECG time on door-to-balloon time.
Reevaluation of the effectiveness of Magnetic Resonance-High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MR-HIFU) therapy for uterine fibroids by excluding studies with restrictive treatment protocols that are no longer used.
We report short-term outcomes of focal high-intensity focused ultrasound use for primary treatment of localized prostate cancer.
Certain technical criteria must be met to ensure the treatment safety of magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound. We retrospectively reviewed how our enrollment criteria were applied from 2014 to 2017 in a clinical trial of magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound ablation of recurrent malignant and locally aggressive benign solid tumors. Among the 36 screened patients between 2014 and 2017, more than one-third were excluded for technical exclusion criteria such as the...
Pain caused by soft tissue injury (STI) is always intractable and will eventually result in physical and psychological problems. This experiment aimed to assess the efficacy and mechanisms of low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU) for pain-related STI.
Transcranial magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (tcMRgFUS) thalamotomy is a novel and effective treatment for controlling tremor in essential tremor patients.
To investigate the non-inferiority of facet joint- and nuchal ligament-sparing laminectomy (FNL) compared to conventional open-door laminoplasty.
Alzheimer's disease was first described over 100 years ago, yet it remains incurable and affects 44 million people worldwide. Traditionally, research has largely focused on the amyloid cascade hypothesis, but interest in the importance of inflammation in the progression of the disease has recently been increasing. Interferons, a large family of cytokines that trigger the immune system, are believed to play a crucial role in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease. This review focuses on how interferons affect ...
This article reviews the most current methods and technological aspects of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), which is termed histotripsy. The rationale for focal therapy for prostate carcinoma rather than prostatectomy, which is being used extensively throughout Europe and Asia, is presented, and an argument for why HIFU is the modality of choice for primary therapy and recurrent disease is offered. The article presents a review of the technical advances including higher ultrasound beam energy than ...
MINI: The surgical results of modified and traditional open-door laminoplasties were retrospectively compared. There were no differences in neurological outcomes and postoperative complications. However, compared with traditional laminoplasty, modified laminoplasty was associated with better maintenance of cervical curvature and ROM, as well as a lower incidence of postoperative axial symptoms.
To reduce temperature errors due to water motion in transcranial MR-guided focused ultrasound (tcMRgFUS) ablation.
Focused ultrasound (FUS) for palliation of bone metastases has typically been performed under magnetic resonance guidance. To address limitations of this approach, this pilot study evaluated a stand-alone, portable FUS device guided by diagnostic ultrasound alone (ultrasound [US]-guided FUS). Nine patients were treated; safety and efficacy were assessed for 10 d after the procedure, and medical charts were evaluated to assess durability of pain response. The procedure was safe and tolerable, with four patie...
Our organization was experiencing a delay in treatment of large vessel occlusions. With a goal of door-to-groin puncture in less than 90 minutes, our organization was averaging a door-to-groin puncture time of greater than 100 minutes and identified the need for a process change.
To examine non-contrast enhanced MRI value to evaluate necrotic area and ablation rate of uterine fibroids after high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) thermal ablation.
It is currently unclear whether the glymphatic system, a brain-wide interstitial fluid-cerebrospinal fluid exchange as described in rodents, exist in humans. Focal blood-brain barrier disruption using MR-guided focused ultrasound allows parenchymal penetration of gadobutrol contrast, creating an opportunity to study the glymphatics in vivo noninvasively. We describe patterns of contrast distribution in the perivascular space, subarachnoid space, and space surrounding large veins draining towards the dural s...
Previously, we showed internal low intensity focused ultrasound (liFUS) improves nociceptive thresholds in rats with vincristine-induced neuropathy (VIN) for 48-h post-treatment. Here, we perform more rigorous behavioral testing with the internal device and introduce external liFUS treatment. Behavioral testing confirmed VIN induced neuropathy (Von Frey fibers, VFF; hot plate, HPT; locomotion, OFT). This was followed by internal or external liFUS treatment (2.5 W or 8 W, for 3 min, respectively) to th...
Microbubbles (MBs) are known to serve as an amplifier of the mechanical effects of ultrasound, which combined with ultrasound are widely used in brain. The goal of this study is to investigate the effect of oscillating MBs on the neuronal activity in the central nervous system (CNS) of mammals. The motor cortex of mice brain was subjected to ultrasound stimulation with and without MBs, and evoked electromyogram signals were recorded. A c-fos immunofluorescence assay was performed to evaluate the neuronal ac...
High intensity focused ultrasound therapeutics are widely used to noninvasively treat various types of primary tumors and metastasis. However, ultrasound penetration depth is shallowed with increasing frequency which limits the therapeutic accuracy for deep tissues. Although acoustic waveguides are commonly inserted into tissue for localized therapy, powerful ultrasound delivery is difficult. Here, we invent double-parabolic-reflectors acoustic waveguides, where high-power ultrasound emission and large mech...
Primary trigeminal neuralgia is a common clinical refractory neuralgia characterized by an onset of excruciating pain that can severely affect patients' quality of life. Long-term suffering from this pain may lead to depression, anxiety, and suicide. Current treatments, however, are associated with high recurrent rates and severe complications. We hypothesize that both the applicability and efficacy of magnetic resonance-guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) treatment in primary trigeminal neur...
Although there have been reports of promising results regarding the transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for neurodegenerative diseases through the use of neuronal differentiation or control of the microenvironment, traditional surgical transplantation methods like parenchymal or intravenous injection have limitations such as secondary injuries in the brain, infection, and low survival rate of stem cells in the target site. Focused ultrasound (FUS) treatment is an emerging modality for the treat...
Insertional peroneus brevis tendinopathy is uncommon and treatment options for recalcitrant insertional lesions are rarely described in the literature. Ultrasound-guided percutaneous ultrasonic needle tenotomy has been described for the treatment of recalcitrant tendinopathy in the elbow, knee, and plantar fascia, but has not been described for the treatment of peroneal tendinopathy. We report a case of recalcitrant insertional peroneus brevis tendinopathy successfully treated with an ultrasound-guided perc...
