We reviewed the cases of 32 patients with growth hormone (GH)-secreting macroadenoma who underwent short-term octreotide treatment before transsphenoidal surgery to determine which types of adenoma the preoperative treatment were sensitive and whether predictors of tumor shrinkage could be identified. The effects of preoperative octreotide treatment,(More)
In this paper, selective wireless power transfer using magnetic resonant coupling is proposed and its characteristics are investigated. The transmission efficiency may degrade with unintentional object near the power transmission system. At that time, by changing the resonant frequency of the transmitting and receiving resonators, undesired effects from the(More)
This study showed the influence of the push-back operation on the occurrence of sleep-related apnea in cleft-palate patients with an analysis of arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) during sleep, polygraphic analysis of nasal air flow, and chest wall movements. The postoperative SpO2 was lower than that of the presurgical period in all cases, requiring from(More)
In this study, the activities of the two external glossal muscles, Genioglossus (Gg) and Styloglossus (Sg), related to respiration were examined through the electromyography (EMG) in dog. During quiet breathing, no phasic respiratory activity were observed in either muscle. With hypercapnic condition induced by closed rebreathing respiratory system, both Sg(More)
The finding that the vomer plays a crucial role in maxillary growth suggests that the bilateral cleft configuration of unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP), in which the vomer is detached from the non-cleft-side secondary hard palate, negatively influences palatal development, and this hypothesis was tested. Sixty persons with complete UCLP, including(More)
A 59-year-old male with liver cirrhosis was admitted to our hospital for further examination of general fatigue. A huge tumor was found in the right lobe of his liver with abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT). The titers of serum AFP (14,055 ng/ml) and PIVKA-II (more than 50.0 AU/ml) were extremely high. A tumor embolus was observed in the(More)
