The effects of mild (33 degrees C) and moderate (29 degrees C) hypothermia were investigated to determine which temperature was more effective against compression-induced cerebral ischemia. Eighteen cats were anesthetized. The animals were divided into three groups according to deep-brain temperature (control, 37 degrees C; mild hypothermia, 33 degrees C;(More)
Therapeutic cerebral hypothermia is widely used for the treatment of severe head injury and cerebral ischemia. The effects of cerebral hypothermia on the cerebral blood flow (CBF) and metabolism, and cerebral vasculature in the normal brain were investigated. Thirty-four adult cats were divided into four groups. CBF was monitored by hydrogen clearance.(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze transposed ovarian movement. Data from 27 patients who underwent ovarian transposition after surgical treatment for uterine cancer were retrospectively analyzed. Computed tomography (CT) images including transposed ovaries were superimposed on other CT images acquired at different times, and were matched on bony(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical significance of systematic retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy during interval debulking surgery (IDS) in advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 124 advanced EOC patients and analyzed the details of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT), IDS, postoperative(More)
This study evaluated the cerebral ischemic parameters during the rewarming period after therapeutic hypothermia to determine the critical cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) threshold to avoid ischemic deterioration. Cat experimental head injury was induced by inflation of an epidural rubber balloon to maintain intracranial pressure at 30 mmHg under(More)
In this study we sought to determine the optimal brain temperature for treating compression-induced cerebral ischemia. Six cats each were treated with a deep-brain temperature of 37 degrees C (control), 33 degrees C (mild hypothermia), or 29 degrees C (moderate hypothermia). Intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral blood flow (CBF) were monitored, as were(More)
