Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, indomethacin (IND), ibuprofen and newer cyclooxygenase-2 selective NSAIDs (e.g. celecoxib) delay gastric ulcer healing partly through the inhibition of angiogenesis, but the molecular mechanisms involved are not fully elucidated. Effective angiogenesis is required for ulcer healing to supply(More)
Portal hypertensive (PHT) gastric mucosa increases susceptibility to injury and delayed mucosal healing. It is possible that nitration of ERK by peroxynitrite might alter MAPK (ERK) signaling in PHT gastric mucosa, leading to delayed mucosal healing, since excessive nitric oxide production is implicated in PHT gastric mucosa and MAPK (ERK) signaling induces(More)
We herein present the case of a 77-year-old man who had fever and right hypochondriac pain. He visited his doctor and underwent contrast computed tomography (CT), and he was suspected to have a liver abscess. He received an antibiotic treatment and his symptoms soon disappeared, but the tumor did not get smaller and its density on contrast CT image got(More)
PURPOSE Stroke volume variation (SVV), which is measured by analyzing arterial blood pressure waveform characteristics, is a simple and sensitive indicator of fluid responsiveness. The current retrospective study was to investigate SVV and central venous pressure (CVP) during hepatic resection under clamping of both the infrahepatic inferior vena cava (IVC)(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatectomy in a patient with situs inversus patient is technically challenging because of its complete mirror image anatomy, especially for a tumor located deep in the liver. Incorrectly identifying intrahepatic vessels and biliary system would lead to serious complications. We experienced a hepatectomy for a tumor in a patient with situs(More)
The oxygen isotope effect of the ferromagnetic transition in itinerant ferromagnet strontium ruthenate SrRuO3 with a Curie temperature Tc of 160 K is studied. We observed for the first time a shift of ∆Tc ~ 1 K by oxygen isotope substitution of (16)O → (18)O in SrRuO3 by precise measurements of DC and AC magnetizations. The results surprisingly lead to the(More)
