The purpose of this study was to examine whether periodontal treatment incorporating topical antibiotic therapy affects on levels of glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) and serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) in type 2 diabetic patients with periodontal disease, and to explore the relationship between CRP and glycemic control. The whole intervention(More)
PURPOSE By means of the intraoperative electrophysiologic observation, we reevaluated the "transfer" theory that a transcallosal volley invoked by a cortical spike discharge in one hemisphere directly causes its contralateral counterpart via the corpus callosum (CC). METHODS Twenty-six patients who underwent corpus callosotomy were the subjects of this(More)
OBJECTIVE Corpus callosotomy tends to decrease seizure frequency and severity rather than transforming the seizure pattern from a generalized form into a lateralized or a partial one. The finding implies that bisection of the corpus callosum (CC) disrupts the epileptogenicity itself. In order to gain further insight into the possible role played by the CC(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate intracoronary thrombi in the culprit lesions in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) by angioscopy, and to compare them with clinical and angiographic features. We angioscopically observed the culprit coronary lesions in 66 patients with AMI (55 males and 11 females, 63.9+/-15.4 years old) just before(More)
