AIM Intra-arterial cisplatin appears to have high therapeutic efficacy, but this has not been studied in detail. Accordingly, we developed a fine-powder cisplatin formulation and tested it in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients in an open-label, uncontrolled study in which 27 institutions participated. METHODS The patients in this study had(More)
A rare case of chondromyxoid fibroma of the scapula in a 21-year-old man is presented. This case is of interest because of its unusual site and association of aneurysmal bone cyst. Although chondromyxoid fibroma is uncommon bone tumor of the scapula, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of expansile osteolytic lesion of the scapula.
Clinical and histologic details of the two siblings with type 1a glycogen storage disease (GSD-1a) who developed hepatoblastoma are presented. The light microscopic studies on hepatic tumor in both siblings revealed fetal type of hepatoblastoma. Ultrastructural findings in Patient 2 showed markedly altered mitochondria, which were frequently surrounded by(More)
Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is widely used to treat unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, a fine-powder formulation of cisplatin (DDP-H) was developed in Japan. We aimed to compare clinical outcomes after TACE using epirubicin or DDP-H in patients with HCC. We evaluated 202 patients who were treated with TACE alone,(More)
To evaluate whether or not the combination of sagittal and coronal spin-echo (SE) T1 and sagittal gradient echo (GRE) T2* weighted imaging is adequate to diagnose internal derangement of the knee, a study was done in 300 knees of 293 consecutive patients who underwent both MR imaging of the knee and arthroscopy. In prospective analysis, the MR imaging had(More)
A new technique of intra-arterial catheterization via the branch of left axillary artery is described. This provides relatively swift and safe insertion and long-term placement of an infusion catheter through the left thoracoacrominal artery without exposure of the left axillary artery, that was required by conventional methods. With our technique, the tip(More)
PURPOSE To assess the ability of double oblique axial (DOA) MR arthrography in evaluating labral-ligamentous complex compared with conventional axial (CA) MR arthrography. MATERIAL AND METHODS MR arthrography of 51 shoulders, subsequently examined with arthroscopy, were retrospectively reviewed. DOA imaging was performed in all 51 shoulders and both DOA(More)
Thirty-six previously untreated cases of head and neck cancer were given a combined therapy of irradiation and intra-arterial, one-shot injection of Cisplatin. As a result, the primary lesions in 35 cases were seen to achieve a 66% complete remission (CR) and a 100% overall response (OR). The lymph metastases in twenty-one cases with positive node achieved(More)
Chemoembolization therapy with arterial injection of a mixture of various anticancer agents (CDDP, ADR, MMC) and Lipiodol along with gelfoam particles was carried out on 158 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma between January 1985 and July 1987. In two groups using CDDP the tumor regressed 50% or more in higher percentage than in the groups without CDDP. The(More)
