Data on 126 consecutive patients who were admitted to our clinics from January 1979 to May 1989 were scrutinized to assess changes in portal hemodynamics following splenectomy. Two groups were classified: (1) a group of 106 patients with cirrhosis of the liver and (2) a group of 20 patients with idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH). Portal thrombosis was(More)
OBJECTIVES Recently, it has been recognized that there are increasing incidences of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) multicentricity. Thus, intraoperatively detected hepatic lesions that were once thought to be metastatic lesions now need to be carefully reexamined to determine whether they are true metastatic lesions or the multicentric development of HCC.(More)
We resected a multiple hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) which contained portal tracts, showed evidence of an early multistep condition, and a multicentric development of HCC which progressed simultaneously. A preoperative working examination revealed a tumor in S5 of the liver, which was 2.5 cm in diameter. In addition, a "nodule-in-nodule" appearance was(More)
Recent studies have suggested that the appearance of solitary new lesions after a curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) may be closely related to the metachronous multicentric development of HCC. It is therefore extremely important to investigate the histological characteristics of solitary new nodular lesions confirmed to be HCC by an(More)
[structure: see text] A new type of glycocluster based on polyhedral oligosilsesquioxanes (POSS) has been efficiently prepared from unprotected mannoside and lactoside employing a convergent approach of thiol-radical addition reaction. The versatility of this approach was demonstrated by functionalization of mannosides and lactosides of different-length(More)
Recently, the multicentric origin of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been recognized, but its clinical importance has still not yet been clarified. The histological characteristics of small hyperechoic HCCs coexisting in 44 consecutively resected Japanese patients whose main HCCs were < 5.0 cm in size were studied. Twelve small hyperechoic HCCs were(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate the validity of a model for estimating shear force on the buttocks of elderly people with kyphosis. METHOD The subjects with kyphosis were 10 elderly people in a facility providing health care services for the elderly. The shear force was measured using a force plate and, simultaneously, the(More)
Water soluble and lectin-recognizable carbohydrate-centered glycoclusters were prepared efficiently by the Huisgen 1,3-cycloaddition reaction of methyl-2,3,4,6-tetra-O-propargyl beta-D-galactopyranoside with 2-azidoethyl glycosides of lactose and N-acetyllactosamine. Their binding by a plant lectin RCA120 was examined by capillary affinity electrophoresis(More)
We report a case of early gastric cancer with Virchow's node metastasis. The patient underwent partial gastrectomy and postoperative immunochemotherapy using MMC, 5'-DFUR and PSK, which reduced the Virchow's node. Three years after surgery, we found metastases to the left subclavicular and axillary nodes other than the Virchow's node. Then UFT was(More)
PURPOSE For some people with leg disorders, the alternative to becoming bedridden is sitting in a wheelchair for long periods of time. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between the backrest of a chair and the position of the pelvis on the maximum pressure at the ischium and the estimated shear force encountered while sitting in a(More)
