Objective: To observe the application of the united detection of tumor markers in the diagnosis and prognosis of colon cancer. Methods: Up to 102 patients with colon cancer from 2007 to 2010 in kanghua hospital were enrolled and 50 healthy donors were used as the control. The levels of CEA, CA125, CA19-9, and CA724 were detected whereas their relationship with the clinical stages and the degrees of differentiation of rectal and colorectal carcinoma was analyzed. The effects of the united detection on the susceptibility and specificity were observed. Results: The levels of CEA, CA125, CA19-9, and CA724 in patients with colon cancer were significantly higher than that in the control group. The levels of the tumor markers were also correlated with the clinical stages and degrees of differentiation. The united detection of tumor markers could significantly improve the susceptibility and specificity. Conclusion: The united detection of serum tumor markers could be conducted to diagnose and prognosticate patients with colon cancer. Source

BACKGROUND: Anterior cervical discectomy and subtotal vertebrectomy/titanium cage fixation are the main therapies for patients with poor outcomes of conservative treatment for cervical spondylosis or those with neurological symptoms of the nerve root following cervical injuries or vertebral fractures. OBJECTIVE: To conclude the reasons and preventive measures for screw loosening following anterior cervical plate fixation. METHODS: Among 41 cases of cervical spondylosis and cervical injuries undergoing anterior cervical fixation plate, there were 3 cases of screw loosening. The causes and control methods were analyzed and proposed to reduce the anterior plate incidence of screw loosening. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Three cases of screw loosening presented with varying degree of dysphasia. After diagnosed, second operation was performed within 2 weeks to adjust the position of re-fixed titanium screw, and the long-term observation showed patients with good symptom relief. The surgical indications and the choice of the rational application of internal fixation devices as well as the correct postoperative management is the key to prevent screw loosening. Source
