Inquiline predator increases nutrient-cycling efficiency of Nepenthes rafflesiana pitchers.

Weng Ngai Lam, Ying Yi Chou, Felicia Wei Shan Leong, Hugh Tiang Wah Tan,

The modified-leaf pitchers of <i>Nepenthes rafflesiana</i> pitcher plants are aquatic, allochthonous ecosystems that are inhabited by specialist inquilines and sustained by the input of invertebrate prey. Detritivorous inquilines are known to increase the nutrient-cycling efficiency (NCE) of pitchers but it is unclear whether predatory inquilines that prey on these detritivores ... Read more >>

Should we pay attention to surgeon or hospital volume in total knee arthroplasty? Evidence from a nationwide population-based study.

Tsung-Hsien Yu, Ying-Yi Chou, Yu-Chi Tung,

<h4>Background</h4>Although prior research into the relationship between volume and outcome indicates that this relationship is not linear and that an optimal volume should be specified, consensus is lacking regarding the ideal value of this optimal volume. The purposes of this study were to use a visual method to identify surgeon- ... Read more >>

Optimal Hospital and Surgeon Volume Thresholds to Improve 30-Day Readmission Rates, Costs, and Length of Stay for Total Hip Replacement.

Ying-Yi Chou, Yu-Chi Tung,

<h4>Background</h4>Little is known about whether there are optimal hospital and surgeon volume thresholds to reduce readmission, costs, and length of stay (LOS) for total hip replacement (THR). Nationwide population-based data were applied to identify the optimal hospital and surgeon volume thresholds and to discover the effects of these volume thresholds ... Read more >>

Do Hospital and Physician Volume Thresholds for the Volume-Outcome Relationship in Heart Failure Exist?

Ying-Yi Chou, Tsung-Hsien Yu, Yu-Chi Tung,

<h4>Background</h4>Although volume-outcome relationships have been explored for various procedures and interventions, limited information is available concerning the effect of hospital and physician volume on heart failure mortality. Most importantly, little is known about whether there are optimal hospital and physician volume thresholds to reduce heart failure mortality.<h4>Objectives</h4>We used nationwide population-based ...

Are PCI Service Volumes Associated with 30-Day Mortality? A Population-Based Study from Taiwan.

Tsung-Hsien Yu, Ying-Yi Chou, Chung-Jen Wei, Yu-Chi Tung,

The volume-outcome relationship has been discussed for over 30 years; however, the findings are inconsistent. This might be due to the heterogeneity of service volume definitions and categorization methods. This study takes percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) as an example to examine whether the service volume was associated with PCI 30-day ... Read more >>

Do you see what I see?: An exploration of inter-ethnic ideal body size comparisons among college women.

Jennifer B Webb, Jan Warren-Findlow, Ying-Yi Chou, Lauren Adams,

The present study explored African American (n=16) and European American (n=19) college women's ideal body size perceptions for their own and the other ethnic group along with reasons behind their selections. Respondents completed an ethnically-neutral figure rating scale and then participated in ethnically-homogenous focus groups. European Americans mostly preferred a ... Read more >>

Sheau-Yun Yuan, Chi-Rei Yang, Chen-Li Cheng, Shih-Lan Hsu, Jiunn-Wang Liao, Chi-Chen Lin, Ying-Yi Chou, Ya-Wen Cheng,

Aristolochic acid (AA) and tetrandrine (TET) are the major bioactive components in Chinese herbs used for weight loss. The nephropathy caused by the 2 Chinese herbs has not been simultaneously investigated. The aim of this study was to examine the potential nephrotoxicity of AA and TET using Madin-Darby canine kidney ... Read more >>

CyclinD1 protein expressed in pterygia is associated with β-catenin protein localization.

Jai-Nien Tung, Chun-Chi Chiang, Yi-Yu Tsai, Ying-Yi Chou, Kun-Tu Yeh, Huei Lee, Ya-Wen Cheng,

<h4>Background</h4>The Wnt (Wg/Wnt) signaling cascade plays an important role in tumorigenesis. Our previous report indicated that aberrant localization of β-catenin proteins was a feature of pterygia. Therefore, this study aimed to analyze the association of β-catenin protein and expression of a downstream gene, cyclin D1, in pterygial tissues.<h4>Methods</h4>Using immunohistochemistry, β-catenin ...

The effects of cognitive defusion and thought distraction on emotional discomfort and believability of negative self-referential thoughts.

Akihiko Masuda, Michael P Twohig, Analia R Stormo, Amanda B Feinstein, Ying-Yi Chou, Johanna W Wendell,

Previous research has shown that rapid vocal repetition of a one-word version of negative self-referential thought reduces the stimulus functions (e.g., emotional discomfort and believability) associated with that thought. The present study compares the effects of that defusion strategy with thought distraction and distraction-based experimental control tasks on a negative ... Read more >>
