Objective evaluation of breast asymmetry surgical treatment should consider not only breast shape but also breast volume. For this study, 22 patients with primary breast asymmetry were evaluated by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as linear measurements preoperatively and 6 months postoperatively. The mean difference between the pre- and(More)
We measured anterior chamber O2 tension and intraocular pressure (IOP) in normal, untreated controls and in rabbits treated with transpupillary argon laser cyclophotocoagulation. Normal anterior chamber O2 tension was 35 +/- 6 mmHg in room air and increased slowly when the rabbits breathed 100% O2. Between 3 days and 6 weeks after cyclophotocoagulation, O2(More)
The slope of the in vivo CO2 titration curve of blood (pH-[HCO3-]p relationship, in vivo slope, unit: slyke) expresses the buffering capacity of blood for CO2 in vivo or the buffering capacity of extracellular fluid for CO2. It depends on the extent of contributions by chemical and physiological buffering processes for CO2 occurring during CO2 titration.(More)
We examined the frequency and types of ocular complications that developed in 560 eyes of 280 patients with atopic dermatitis at the Department of Dermatology, Tokyo Medical College Hospital. Mild ocular involvement included blepharitis in 294 eyes (52.5%), conjunctivitis in 221 eyes (39.5%), and superficial punctate keratopathy in 65 eyes (11.6%). More(More)
We report the association between heart disease associated with noncompaction of the left ventricular myocardium (NCLVM) and chronic Chagas' heart disease (CCHD) in a patient with heart failure, ischemic stroke and cardiac arrhythmia. Images typical of NCLVM and CCHD were documented by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI).
A 59-year-old asymptomatic man, who had undergone cardiac valve surgery 40 years earlier, demonstrated a paracardiac mass on routine chest x-ray (Figure 1). Subsequently, a chest computed tomography scan was performed, which showed a 14.0 9.5 cm heterogeneous lesion, with lobulated contours, along the inferior aspect of the left and right ventricles (Figure(More)
Background: Invasive and non-invasive tests have been used to identify the risk of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with chagas’ cardiomyopathy (CCM). Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) using the delayed enhancement (DE) technique can be useful to select patients with global or segmentary ventricular dysfunction, with high degree of fibrosis(More)
