Disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection can occur in immunocompromised patients, and rarely in immunocompetent subjects. Due to the extensive distribution of the disease, clinical presentation of disseminated MAC may mimic malignancies, and thorough examinations are required in order to make accurate diagnosis. We report a case of(More)
A 61-year-old woman came to the hospital with dyspnea and pleural effusion on chest radiography. She underwent repeated thoracentesis, transbronchial lung biopsy, bronchoalveolar lavage, and thoracoscopic pleural biopsy with talc pleurodesis, but diagnosis of her was uncertain.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a critical condition with high morbidity and mortality. Although several medications are available, there are no definite treatments. However, recent advances in the understanding of stem and progenitor cells in the lung, and molecular changes during re-alveolization after pneumonectomy, have made it possible(More)

We estimated the effect of various immunosuppressants (ISs) and metformin (M) to provide theoretical background of optimal therapeutic strategy for de novo colon cancer after liver transplantation (LT). Three colon cancer cell lines (HT29, SW620, and HCT116) were used in in vitro studies. HT29 was also used in BALB/c-nude mice animal models. Following(More)
Partial liver grafts used in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) may have multiple hepatic artery (HA) stumps. This study was designed to validate the safety of partial reconstruction of multiple HAs in pediatric LDLT cases. From January 2000 to June 2014, 136 pediatric LDLT recipients were categorized into three groups: single HA group (Group 1, n =(More)
PURPOSE Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has some limitations such as poor sonic window and injury to adjacent organs. The laparoscopic approach has been suggested as an alternative option. The aim of this study was to show the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic RFA for single, small (≤3 cm), and primary or(More)
PURPOSE Low-tidal volume (TV) mechanical ventilation is an important manipulation in managing patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). However, there is no definite evidence to support the use of this intervention in patients with viral etiologies. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective observational study of 104 patients with ARDS caused(More)
