PURPOSE The use of drug-eluting stent (DES) to treat intracranial stenosis has shown short-term success. However, there are no reports regarding the long-term results of DES. We present the long-term clinical outcome after DES stenting for symptomatic severe intracranial stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Our study included a consecutive series of 11(More)
The purpose of this pilot study was to compare proliferation, collagen synthesis, and growth factor production, which are important contributing factors for wound healing, of the bone marrow stromal cells (BSCs) with those of dermal fibroblasts in vitro. Cultured human BSCs and dermal fibroblasts from the same patients were seeded in 96-well culture plates.(More)
The mammalian cerebral cortex is composed of individual layers characterized by the cell types they contain and their afferent and efferent connections. The current study examined the raw, and size-normalized, laminar thicknesses in three cortical regions (somatosensory, motor, and premotor) of fourteen species from three orders of mammals: primates,(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective case series. OBJECTIVE To compare the surgical outcomes of open-door and French-door cervical laminoplasty for decompressing multilevel cervical spinal cord compressions. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cervical laminoplasty is an effective method for decompressing multilevel cervical spinal cord compressions. Laminoplasty is(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated whether pial venous reflux (PVR) is associated with hemorrhage or edema in dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). METHODS We evaluated the association of hemorrhage or edema with the occurrence of PVR or cortical venous reflux (CVR) in 222 patients with DAVF. We determined whether angiographic findings of PVR or CVR (more than(More)
Successful rhinoplasty depends on nasal tip support and its influence on nasal tip projection. It is generally agreed that the components of nasal tip support include the attachment between the upper and lower lateral cartilages, the attachment between the lateral crus of the lower lateral cartilage and the pyriform aperture, the attachment between the(More)
Adenomyoma of the small intestine is a rare tumor-like lesion composed of exocrine-type ducts and hypertrophic smooth muscle. We describe two cases of adenomyoma of the small intestine. One was an ileal adenomyoma that presented with intussusception occurring in a 7-month-old boy. The other was a jejunal adenomyoma found incidentally in a 63-year-old man(More)
Intracranial atherosclerosis against optimal medical treatment requires reperfusion therapy to improve the clinical outcome. We compared outcomes between self-expandable stent (SES) and/or balloon-expandable stent (BES) and present the potential advantages of using each stent. During the same time frame before and after Wingspan introduction to our(More)
In rare cases restricted sensory deficits along the somatotopic topography of the spinothalamic tract can develop from a lateral medullary infarction. To our knowledge, isolated dermatomal sensory deficit as a single manifestation of a lateral medullary infarction has not been reported previously. A 58-year-old man presenting with sudden left-sided(More)
Acute, distal, basilar artery occlusion is a challenging neurovascular emergency. There have been several reports regarding the successful application of the Solitaire FR device for treating this lesion. However, due to the lack of a suitable, balloon-tipped, guiding catheter for the vertebral artery, during this procedure we frequently experience the(More)
