The authors describe a 47-year-old woman with intravenous leiomyomatosis (IVL) extending into the right ventricular cavity. This rare entity is a neoplasm originating from smooth muscle of the uterus, with vermiform extensions into the inferior vena cava. The patient underwent a one-stage operation under simultaneous sternotomy and laparotomy, and radical(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to evaluate the long-term results of mitral valve repair for mitral regurgitation. METHODS Between 1991 and 2000, 301 patients with mitral regurgitation underwent mitral valve repair. There were 167 men and 134 women whose mean age was 56 +/- 14 years. The patients were comprised of 7 patients in Carpentier's type I,(More)
The surgical treatment for ischemic mitral regurgitation remains controversal. Ring annuloplasty results in recurrent mitral regurgitation in some cases. Strut chordal cutting is a new surgical procedure in addition to ring annuloplasty for ischemic mitral regurgitation. Two patients (63-year-old woman, 53-year-old man) with severe ischemic mitral(More)
From 1984 to 1996, four patients with transvenous intracardiac tumor extension underwent operations in the Kobe University Hospital. The primary tumors of two were intravenous leiomyomatoses originating from the uterus; a third patient had invasive thymoma, and the fourth patient had clear cell sarcoma of the kidney. In 1985, one patient had a curative,(More)
UNLABELLED Aggressive surgical treatment in renal cell carcinoma is still controversial. The aim of this paper is to assess inferior vena caval (IVC) reconstruction for suprahepatic vena caval renal cell carcinoma (RCC) tumor thrombus. Twelve patients with suprahepatic vena caval thrombus from renal cell carcinoma who underwent surgical repair with(More)
The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the etiology of hepatic dysfunction in patients difficult to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass. We hypothesized that increased central venous pressure and subsequent hepatic congestion during weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass would lead to hepatic dysfunction. To induce hepatic congestion in mice, we clamped(More)
The purpose of this study was to prove the hypothesis that ET-1 production is increased in the splanchnic-hepato circulation during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with or without hypothermia and this greatly affects hepatocellular function after surgery. Twelve Japanese white rabbits were used. In group I (n = 6), the rectal temperature was kept at 37.0(More)
From 1986 to 1996, 20 patients underwent aortic root replacement. All of the patients had annulo aortic ectasia (AAE); Six had DeBakey type I aortic dissection, three were acute dissections associated with Marfan's syndrome; three had previously undergone the Koster-Collins operation. During 11 years, the original Bentall procedure (1986-91), the Cabrol(More)
BACKGROUND In the late postoperative period after repair of an aortic dissection or dissecting aneurysm, reoperations may be required. The interval to reoperation, size and location of intimal tear, and results of reoperation were evaluated. METHODS Between January 1982 and April 1997, 138 patients underwent surgery for Stanford type A (90 patients) or(More)
Herein is reported a successful surgical case of aortic root replacement for aortic regurgitation in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta. A 37-year-old male, who had been diagnosed as osteogenesis imperfecta of type IA, underwent mitral valve repair for mitral regurgitation. Severe aortic regurgitation developed four years after surgery. A stentless(More)
