Human T cell leukemia virus type-1 (HTLV-1) is the established cause of adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma. Monitoring time trends in HTLV-1 seroprevalence in blood donors is important to assess the safety of the blood supply in the viral endemic area. We analyzed changes in HTLV-1 seroprevalence in 48415 first-time blood donors who donated blood from 2000 to(More)
The right gastroepiploic artery (GEA) was used as hepatic artery graft in 2 patients with advanced upper bile duct cancer. The pedicle, including the right GEA and surrounding tissues, was mobilized along greater curvature of the stomach. The GEA pedicle was raised up beyond the gastric pylorus and was anastomosed to the distal right hepatic artery by(More)
During the last 9 years, 25 extremely premature infants (less than 1,000 g, mean gestational ages of 26.6 weeks, mean birth weight of 838 g) underwent ligation of PDA in operating room. There were no deaths related to surgery. Nineteen (76%) of these infants with RDS were discharged from the hospital, but five died of sepsis, and one died with poor(More)
A 23-year-old female with Turner syndrome and horse-shoe kidney underwent the operation of the coarctation of the aorta associated with the thoracic aortic aneurysm. The aortic aneurysm was located between the left carotid artery and the coarctation of the aorta, and the subclavian artery which was branched away from the aortic aneurysm was also aneurysmal.(More)

A retrospective study of post-transfusion hepatitis (PTH) has been made of 168 patients who had open-heart surgery between 1978 and 1981 at the Nagasaki University Hospital. The criteria of PTH was defined as an elevation of SGPT over 50 units with more than 2 weeks duration that occurred later than 3 weeks after the transfusion. PTH developed in 27 of the(More)
