Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a recently discovered systemic condition, in which various organ manifestations are linked by a similar histological appearance. Our knowledge of this condition is still fragmented, as most studies have examined only a few dozen patients or focused on a particular organ manifestation. This study was conducted(More)
To evaluate the arterial blood supply to the caudate lobe of the liver from the proximal branches of the right inferior phrenic artery (RIPA) in patients with recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE). Thirteen patients, including 10 who had a history of TACE of the caudate artery (A1), underwent TACE of the(More)
To compare local control effects of superselective transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) using epirubicin (EPI) plus mitomycin C (M) and miriplatin (MPT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). One-hundred and twenty-nine HCCs treated with superselective TACE were divided into three groups according to the type of anticancer drug; EPI-M-TACE (n = 51),(More)
To report technical aspects of thrombolysis and thromboaspiration for acute thromboembolic occlusion in the upper extremity. This study included four consecutive patients with acute thromboembolic occlusion in the upper extremity (right arm, n = 3; left arm n = 1). The mean patient age was 81.3 ± 11.5 years (mean ± standard deviation; range 69–92 years) and(More)
To analyze the origins of the feeding arteries of hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) near the umbilical fissure of the left hepatic lobe. Twenty-eight HCCs with a mean ± SD tumor diameter of 3.4 ± 1.0 cm (range 1–4.4 cm) in contact with the right or left side of the umbilical fissure were treated by superselective transcatheter arterial chemoembolization(More)
To reveal the CT and MR imaging features of adenosquamous carcinoma of pancreas (ASqC) in eight patients. This study was approved by our institutional review board. Eight patients with ASqC were included in this study. Radiologic and pathologic findings were reviewed in each lesion. Additionally, radiologic imaging findings were compared between ASqC and(More)
We describe a 67-year-old man with immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) presenting with optic neuropathy, dacryoadenitis, periaortitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and a gastric mass-like lesion. A mass-like lesion measuring 52 × 40 mm in the antrum of the stomach was found incidentally through whole-body screening for other organ involvement of(More)
The left hepatic lobe is divided into three subsegments according to anatomical landmarks; however, there are several variations in the vascular territories of the left hepatic arterial branches. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) located near the umbilical fissure or at the left side of the umbilical portion of the left portal vein has frequent crossover blood(More)
To retrospectively elucidate the findings useful in determining the tumor grade of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) by combined assessment of magnetic resonance (MR) and dynamic computed tomography (CT) images. Eighty-nine patients with PNETs (96 lesions) were included, and classified as G1, 59; G2, 29; and G3, 8 lesions. Image analysis included(More)
To elucidate the dynamic CT features of pure type of cholangiolocellular carcinoma (pure CoCC) in comparison with those of cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC) and to analyze their bases by angiography-assisted CT with histopathologic correlation. Surgically confirmed 10 pure CoCCs, 10 CCCs and 7 mixed CoCC and CCCs from August 2001 to May 2012 were included(More)
