We devised a new needle for epidural spinal cord stimulation (ESCS) and have used it in outpatients with intractable pain. We now report three typical cases and introduce the procedure of ESCS with the new needle. ESCS was reported to be effective in various kinds of painl 7 , peripheral vascular8~12 and spastic muscular diseases13-15. The conventional(More)
To clarify the differential effects of vecuronium on the thumb and on the big toe, train-of-four (TOF) stimuli were applied to the ulnar nerve at the wrist and the tibial nerve at the ankle in anesthetized patients using two acceleration transducers. Ten adult patients, aged 21–55 years, were studied. Anesthesia was induced by an intravenous injection of(More)
Congenital afibrinogenemia is a rare coagulation disorder with an autosomal recessive inheritance. Its prognosis has recently been improved through the administration of human fibrinogen. But fibrinogen administration rarely induces severely hypersensitive reactions, and death due to anaphylaxis has been reported in some cases 1,2 • This is a report on a(More)
Lactobacillus paracasei K71 was shown to be effective in alleviating the severity of atopic dermatitis in a randomized controlled trial, and a preliminary open-label trial suggested that strain K71 intake enhanced secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) release in the saliva. This study investigated the effect of K71 on sIgA release in a randomized, double-blind,(More)
Recently, the incidence of multiple pregnancy has increased due to the use of induction agent of ovulation or gamate intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) for the treatment of infertility l ,2 . The maternal complications may include premature labor, preeclampsia, thrombocytopenia, abruptio placenta and so on, and require urgent delivery by Cesarean section.(More)
We evaluated possible differential effects of age on a single bolus intravenous injection of vecuronium using accelography under sevoflurane anesthesia. Thirty anesthetized patients were divided into three groups of 10 patients as follows: group 1=age 1–5 years; group 2=age 20–40 years, and group 3=age >70 years. Vecuronium 0.1 mg·kg−1 was given to(More)
The effects of cyclosporine and allopurinol on neuronal death following global cerebral ischemia were evaluated in Mongolian gerbils. The animals were randomly divided into four groups of 12 each: (1) sham operation as control, (2) occlusion of the bilateral common carotid arteries for 12 min and treatment with physiological saline, (3) occlusion plus(More)
