Authors: Gong M, Zhao B, He X, Gu J, Chen G Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the rescue of thrombolysis with the recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) alteplase was an effective and safe therapeutic option in patients who did not respond to urokinase. Between February 2016 and February 2017, 26 patients with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) underwent rescue thrombolysis with alteplase. Unsuccessful thrombolysis with urokinase was defined as a lack of improvement in the degree of thrombotic removal with a lysis rate 3 million units of total urokinase, or>7 days infusion dura...

Authors: Liu P, Yan B, Zhang Y, Yan J, Ma C, Wang G, Jian T, Sun Z Abstract Cystic adventitial disease (CAD) is a condition that mainly affects the arterial system but rarely involves the venous system. The present study reported on two cases of CAD of femoral veins. The clinical manifestations in the two patients included pain and swelling of the lower limbs, but they had no risk factors for venous thrombosis. Color ultrasonography indicated cystic space-occupying lesions around the femoral veins, and enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed vascular compression and space-occupying properties of the femoral vein...

Authors: Meng C, Li Y, Wang S, Yu J, Kou D, Liu C Abstract Targeted percutaneous laser disc decompression (T-PLDD) is a minimally invasive technique for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation (LDH). However, the amount of energy required is large and the nerve can be easily damaged. Therefore, this technology requires improvement. The present study aimed to observe the effects of using a modified optical fiber (Mod) in T-PLDD for the treatment of LDH. A retrospective study was conducted using the database of the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University (Qingdao, China). In total, 58 patients who received T-PLDD w...

Germacrone cooperates with dexmedetomidine to alleviate high-fat diet-induced type 2 diabetes mellitus via upregulating AMPKα1 expression. Exp Ther Med. 2019 Nov;18(5):3514-3524 Authors: Sun Y, Li L, Wu J, Gong B, Liu H Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of germacrone (GM) and dexmedetomidine (DEX) in treating type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). A high-fat diet (HFD)-induced T2DM rat model was established. The experimental rats were divided into the control group, HFD group, GM treatment group, DEX treatment group and GM + DEX treatment group. In addition, adenosine...
