2017 Medicine  
The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and risk factors of symptomatic adjacent segment disease (ASD) following single-lever anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for cervical degenerative diseases. From January 2000 to December 2010, a total of 582 patients with cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy who had undergone single-lever ACDF surgery in the authors' institution were reviewed retrospectively.

And univariate analysis and logistic regression analysis were performed to identify the risk factors of ASD. Among the 582 patients, 36 patients received subsequent surgical management for ASD after initial single-lever ACDF for an overall prevalence of 6.2%. The average onset time of ASD was 8.5 (2-15) years. The univariate analysis showed that there were no significant differences in sex, duration of disease, BMI, DM, smoking, operative levels, and follow-up period (P > .05) between the 2 groups with and without ASD. There were statistically significant differences in age at the time of operation (x 2 = 4.361, P = .037), and developmental canal stenosis (x 2 = 4.181, P = .041) between patients with and without ASD. The variables of age at the time of operation and developmental canal stenosis were included in a logistic regression model. The logistic regression analysis revealed that age at the time of operation 50 years (P = .045, OR = 3.015, 95% CI = 1.024-8.882) and developmental canal stenosis (P = .042, OR = 2.797, 95% CI = 1.039-7.527) were the risk factors for ASD after single-lever ACDF. In the present study, the incidence of symptomatic ASD after single-lever ACDF was 6.2%. And the age at the time of operation 50 years and developmental canal stenosis were the risk factors for ASD. The patients 50 years old at the time of operation or with developmental canal stenosis are more likely to develop ASD after surgery, and the risk of reoperation will increase. Abbreviations: ACDF = anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, ASD = adjacent segment diseases, BMI = body mass index, DM = diabetes mellitus.

A horseshoe kidney is the most common congenital fusion abnormality in the kidney, occurring in approximately 1 in 400 live births. Several complications including renal malignancies, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, urolithiasis, vesicoureteral reflux, and hydronephrosis can occur in this patient population. A 28-year-old woman was admitted to hospital because of chronic left low back pain. Microscopic hematuria was not seen. Computed tomography showed the horseshoe kidney and left

A retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy on the left kidney was performed. Histopathological examination of the specimen confirmed massive dilatation of the pelvicaliceal system and chronic pyelonephritic inflammation. The patient was discharged on the 7th postoperative day with no complications and no back pain. She remained well at 3 months with normal activity and good cosmetic result. Retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy can be a safe and minimally invasive surgery for horseshoe kidney treatment.

2012 PLoS ONE  
MicroRNAs have been implicated in the regulation of several cellular signaling pathways of colorectal cancer (CRC) cells. Although emerging evidence proves that microRNA (miR)-106a is expressed highly in primary tumor and stool samples of CRC patients; whether or not miR-106a mediates cancer metastasis is unknown. We show here that miR-106a is highly expressed in metastatic CRC cells, and regulates cancer cell migration and invasion positively in vitro and in vivo. These phenotypes do not

MiR-106a inhibits the expression of transforming growth factor-b receptor 2 (TGFBR2), leading to increased CRC cell migration and invasion. Importantly, miR-106a expression levels in primary CRCs are correlated with clinical cancer progression. These observations indicate that miR-106a inhibits the anti-metastatic target directly and results in CRC cell migration and invasion. Citation: Feng B, Dong TT, Wang LL, Zhou HM, Zhao HC, et al.

Latent Complete Row Space Recovery for Multi-view Subspace Clustering [article]

Hong Tao and Chenping Hou and Yuhua Qian and Jubo Zhu and Dongyun Yi
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Multi-view subspace clustering has been applied to applications such as image processing and video surveillance, and has attracted increasing attention. Most existing methods learn view-specific self-representation matrices, and construct a combined affinity matrix from multiple views. The affinity construction process is time-consuming, and the combined affinity matrix is not guaranteed to reflect the whole true subspace structure. To overcome these issues, the Latent Complete Row Space

Concretely, LCRSR is based on the assumption that the multi-view observations are generated from an underlying latent representation, which is further assumed to collect the authentic samples drawn exactly from multiple subspaces. LCRSR is able to recover the row space of the latent representation, which not only carries complete information from multiple views but also determines the subspace membership under certain conditions. LCRSR does not involve the graph construction procedure and is solved with an efficient and convergent algorithm, thereby being more scalable to large-scale datasets. The effectiveness and efficiency of LCRSR are validated by clustering various kinds of multi-view data and illustrated in the background subtraction task.

Carbon nanotubes(CNTs) exhibit good mechanical, electrical and thermal properties, and thus with wide application prospects, therefore, attracted wide attention are received from scholars of various countries. CNT fibers and films, composed by CNT bundles, are the main application forms of CNTs in macroscopic scale. However, the performance of CNT fibers and films are far lower than that of single CNT, which is mainly owing to their low density. The main approach for strengthening CNT fibers

Different critical points of chiral and deconfinement phase transitions in (2+1)-dimensional fermion-gauge interacting model [article]

Hong-tao Feng, Feng-yao Hou, Yong-hui Xia, Jun-yi Wang, Hong-shi Zong
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Based on the truncated Dyson-Schwinger equations for fermion and massive boson propagators in QED_3, the fermion chiral condensate and the mass singularities of the fermion propagator via the Schwinger function are investigated. It is shown that the critical point of chiral phase transition is apparently different from that of deconfinement phase transition and in Nambu phase the fermion is confined only for small gauge boson mass.

2014 Procedia Engineering  
The pulse current auxiliary forming technology has been widely applied for the fabrication of complex sheet metal parts. However, the potential of high-density pulse current to generate high electromagnetic forces, which can be taken as drive forces in forming process, hasn't been paid enough attention. Compared with the traditional gas bulging technology, bulging based on pulse current has two main advantages. One is that metal sheets can be formed directly by electromagnetic forces instead of

The other is that the forming performance can be improved by the electro plastic effect induced by pulse currents during deformation. In this paper, to validate the effectiveness of this novel method, a special electromagnetic system for bulging of 1420 Al-Li Alloy has been designed and fabricated, in which a highdensity pulse current flows through two parallel 1420 Al-Li Alloy sheets in opposite directions to generate repulsive forces for bulging. Finally, both the numerical and experimental studies are carried out to study the forming behaviour of sheets.

Multiple-View Spectral Embedded Clustering Using a Co-training Approach [chapter]

Hong Tao, Chenping Hou, Dongyun Yi
2013 Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering  
It is a challenging task to integrate multi-view representations, each of which is of high dimension to improve the clustering performance. In this paper, we aim to improve the clustering performance of spectral clustering method when the manifold for high-dimensional data is not well defined in the multiple-view setting. We abstract the discriminative information on each view by spectral embedded clustering which performs well on high-dimensional data without a clear low-dimensional manifold

We derive a co-training algorithm to obtain a most informative clustering by iteratively modifying the affinity graph used for one view using the discriminative information from the other views. The approach is based on the assumption that the clustering from one view should agree with the clustering from another view. Comprehensive experiments on four real-world multiple-view high-dimensional datasets are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Owing to excellent mechanical property and biodegradation, magnesium-based alloys have been widely investigated for temporary implants such as cardiovascular stent and bone graft; however, the fast biodegradation in physiological environment and the limited surface biocompatibility hinder their clinical applications. In the present study, magnesium alloy was treated by sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and hydrogen fluoride (HF) solutions, respectively, to produce the chemical conversion layers with the

The results of attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) indicated that the chemical conversion layers of magnesium hydroxide or magnesium fluoride were obtained successfully. Sodium hydroxide treatment can significantly enhance the surface hydrophilicity while hydrogen fluoride treatment improved the surface hydrophobicity. Both the chemical conversion layers can obviously improve the corrosion resistance of the pristine magnesium alloy. Due to the hydrophobicity of magnesium fluoride, HF-treated magnesium alloy showed the relative better corrosion resistance than that of NaOH-treated substrate. According to the results of hemolysis assay and platelet adhesion, the chemical surface modified samples exhibited improved blood compatibility as compared to the pristine magnesium alloy. Furthermore, the chemical surface modified samples improved cytocompatibility to endothelial cells, the cells had better cell adhesion and proliferative profiles on the modified surfaces. Due to the excellent hydrophilicity, the NaOH-treated substrate displayed better blood compatibility and cytocompatibility to endothelial cells than that of HF-treated sample. It was considered that the method of the present study can be used for the surface modification of the magnesium alloy to enhance the corrosion resistance and biocompatibility.

Secondly, fuzzy control method was put forward and a fuzzy controller was designed by analysis experimental results to find the shortages, and then experimental verification work was done. Finally, the real-time curve of level control and real-time data were displayed in the MCGS configuration software. The two experimental results show that PID Control can control the level of twolink tank, but the effect is a bit poor. It can be improved the performance using PID control based on double baroceptors. The fuzzy control improves the dynamic performance and steady-state performance and obtains better control effect.
