A case of a 36-year-old woman with a past history of uterine leiomyosarcoma and an intracerebral metastasis is reported. The patient presented with a 24-hour history of severe headache with coma, and the CT findings were consistent with a metastatic lesion. Pathological examination of the operative specimen showed features of a leiomyosarcoma. Uterine(More)
Intravascular ultrasound imaging was performed in vitro on six histologically normal and 104 minimally diseased arteries in patients aged 13 to 83 years. This study tested the hypothesis that normal coronary arteries produce a three-layer image that corresponds to the histologic layers of intima, media, and adventitia. The results showed a very good(More)
OBJECTIVES This study attempted to determine why there is a discrepancy between angiographic and intravascular ultrasound measurements after coronary balloon angioplasty. BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown a poor correlation between angiographic and intravascular ultrasound measurements after percutaneous coronary balloon angioplasty. METHODS After(More)
The rate of restenosis after directional coronary atherectomy (DCA) is higher than expected. To elucidate why, the current study used intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging to investigate the mechanism of DCA. An in vitro validation study was performed to determine the accuracy of the measurement of plaque removal by IVUS. DCA was performed in eight human(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to compare the accuracy of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and electron-beam computed tomography (EBCT) in quantitating human atherosclerotic plaque and calcium. In experiment 1, 12 human atherosclerotic arterial segments were obtained at autopsy and imaged by using IVUS and EBCT. The plaque from each arterial segment(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that in occlusions of the superficial femoral artery, removal of atherosclerotic plaque would result in a higher long-term patency rate compared to balloon dilatation alone. A secondary hypothesis was that long term patency would be proportional to the amount of plaque removed. METHODS A(More)
The observed increase of superconducting transition temperature (T(c)) with the number of copper oxide planes continues in the four-[CuO(2)](-2) layer (single TI layer) oxide superconductor, which has been prepared with > 80% purity and was magnetically aligned for crystallographic identification. A master scaling curve is proposed, which ties together the(More)
