OBJECTIVE To evaluate usefulness and safety of an indwelling contemporary balloon catheter, we compared complication rates among five methods of urinary tract management. PATIENTS AND METHODS History of febrile episode, bladder stones, pyuria and the miscellaneous urinary tract problems of 114 patients were retrospectively reviewed. The rates of(More)
We evaluated the effects of 4′-epi-Adriamycin (EPI), a derivative of Adriamycin (ADR), in intravesical instillation chemotherapy. The patients received two courses of three daily instillations of 50–80 mg EPI dissolved in 30 ml physiological saline on 3 consecutive days, with an interval of 4 days between courses. Full evaluation was possible in 33 of 35(More)
A 42-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of lumbago and tachycardia-induced heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed impaired left ventricular function and a ball mass of thrombus in the left ventricle (LV). He was found to have systemic embolism in the spleen, kidneys, brain, and limbs. The patient was treated with limb(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between the anatomical location of right ventricular pacing site and paced QRS duration is unclear. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between right ventricular pacing site and paced QRS duration using cardiac angiography. METHODS Fifty patients were implanted with pacemakers. The right ventricular lead(More)
We report a case in which retroperitoneoscopic pyelolithotomy was the procedure selected to treat a large stone in the upper urinary tract. A 71-year-old woman who had multiple cerebral infarction and dementia was admitted with a persistent high fever unresponsive to antibiotics. The diagnosis was pyelonephritis and urosepsis associated with ureteral(More)
A total of 85 cases treated by intravesical administration of adriamycin (ADM) at Okayama University and other cooperating institutions were examined. Instillation of 50 mg adriamycin dissolved in 30 ml physiological saline was performed in two courses of 3 consecutive days, with a 4-day interval between the courses. The response rate was 70.6%.

In order to examine its clinical efficacy, recombinant human interferon-β (rIFN-β) was instilled intravesically into 51 patients with superficial bladder cancer. Ten patients, who received intermittent intravesical instillation at a dose of (3−36) × 106 U rIFN-β on days 1–3 every week, showed no response. Thirty-two patients received intravesical(More)
