It has been shown that end-to-side coaptation and nerve bypass grafting, which are essentially two sequential end-to-side coaptations, induce axonal outgrowth in peripheral nerve injuries. However, it is unknown whether the axons regenerated after end-to-side coaptation originate by collateral sprouting at the suture site or by elongation from the spinal(More)
Cyclin E is one of the G1 cyclins that play an important role in cell proliferation. Overexpression of cyclin E protein has been reported in several solid tumors, but little is known about the involvement of cyclin E in leukemia. In this study, we analyzed the expression of cyclin E gene product in 85 patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) by(More)
BACKGROUND Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a challenging surgical procedure that can be used to treat severely dislocated hips. There are few reports regarding cemented THAs involving subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy (SSO), even though cemented THAs provide great advantages because the femur is generally hypoplastic with a narrow, deformed canal.

OBJECT Surgical outcome and radiographic changes after microsurgical bilateral decompression via a unilateral approach (MBDU) for lumbar spinal canal stenosis during midterm follow-up periods (> 2 years) have not been reported. The authors retrospectively investigated surgical outcomes after MBDU in patients with lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis with(More)
This paper describes a timing analysis system (ACTAS: ACcurate Timing Analysis System). This system analyzes the logical behaviors of VLSI. It verifies timings at flip-flops and detects timing errors. Then, it calculates path delays of the partial combinational circuits generating the errors. If they do not satisfy timing constraints, the system detects(More)
OBJECT Modified cervical laminoplasty techniques have been developed to reduce postoperative axial neck pain and preserve function in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). However, the previous studies demonstrating satisfactory surgical outcomes had a retrospective design. Here, the authors aimed to prospectively evaluate the 2-year outcomes(More)
We propose Landmark-Conscious Voice Navigation as one type of a pedestrian navigation system, which navigate users by only voice guidance. It is necessary to standardize data model in order to use this system widely. In a previous paper[1], we constructed a basic voice navigation system, which uses Open Street Map based data model. In this paper, at first,(More)
BACKGROUND We have developed crosslinked salmon-derived atelocollagen sponge, which has a denaturation temperature of 47 degrees Celsius. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the fundamental in vivo efficacy of the osteogenic protein (OP) -1 containing salmon-derived collagen sponge disc (SCS) on cartilage regeneration, using a rabbit model.
