Intracellular accumulation of altered proteins, including p62 and ubiquitinated proteins, is the basis of most neurodegenerative disorders. The relationship among the accumulation of altered proteins, autophagy, and spinal cord dysfunction by cervical spondylotic myelopathy has not been clarified. We examined the expression of p62 and autophagy markers in(More)
Surgical site infection (SSI) after spine instrumentation is difficult to treat, and often requires removal of instrumentation. The removal of instrumentation after spine surgery is a severe complication that can lead to the deterioration of activities of daily living and poor prognosis. Although there are many reports on SSI after spine surgery, few(More)
We investigated the correlation between the changes in diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging, regional water content, and tissue ultrastructure after vasogenic brain edema induced by cortical cold lesioning. In this cat model, E3 in the white matter was dominantly increased while fractional anisotropy (FA) was significantly decreased 8 hours after(More)
The efficacy and safety of chemical prophylaxis to prevent the development of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) following spine surgery are controversial because of the possibility of epidural hematoma formation. Postoperative venous thromboembolism (VTE) after spine surgery occurs at a frequency similar to that seen after joint(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE It has been shown in previous studies that recovery of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of water is not necessarily associated with a reversal of tissue damage. We examined the relationships between temporal ADC change and histological outcome after embolic stroke in rat using an experimental MRI scanner. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)

Introduction:Retro-odontoid mass rarely occur in patients with noninflammatory retro-odontoid lesions without atlantoaxial instability. We describe a rare case of retro-odontoid mass without atlantoaxial instability operated on by a transdural approach.Case Presentation:The patient was an 83-year-old man who presented with a retro-odontoid mass causing(More)
