The present study was planned to clarify the characteristics of blunt traumatic cardiac rupture. We performed a retrospective analysis of 63 patients with blunt traumatic cardiac rupture during the period from April 1975 through February 1993. Six of nine patients arrived with recordable blood pressure, and injuries were detected by ultrasonography. Three(More)
BACKGROUND Although diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL) is a well-established, reliably objective method of diagnosis of intraperitoneal injury, it is too sensitive to be used as an indicator for emergency celiotomy. Therefore, since the development of ultrasonography and advanced computed tomographic scanners, the role of DPL has been markedly reduced.(More)
Cystadenoma is a relatively rare benign epithelial tumor of the salivary glands, and described herein is an additional case. A 51-year-old Japanese man had noticed a mass of the left hard palate 25 years previously. Macroscopically, the resected specimen was a multicystic lesion. Histologically, the tumor was composed of bilayered columnar epithelium with(More)
Stab wounds of the chest occupy an important position in penetrating thoracic injuries in Japan. A retrospective review of 117 patients with stab wounds of the chest admitted to our hospital over the past 12 years (from 1975 to 1987) revealed some factors that might influence their mortality. Seven patients died from trans-diaphragmatic injuries of(More)
One hundred and sixty four patients with extensive burn were treated over 6 years, 1976 through 1981. Clinical data were analyzed, dividing into successive period; Grod: Group I (83 patients, 1976-1978) and Group II (81 patients, 1979-1981). The mean age was 28.9 years, the mean burn area was 52.6% body surface area (% BSA) and Burn Index was 38.7 in group(More)
The course of intracranial pressure (ICP) and the finding of auditory brain stem response (ABR) was discussed in the cases diagnosed as diffuse axonal injury (DAI) established by Gennarelli. ICP was measured in twenty-six cases which were divided into three groups according to the course of ICP: Group (1), in which ICP remained below 20 mmHg (group I, 9(More)
Forty cases diagnosed as diffuse brain injury (DBI) were studied by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed within 3 days after injury. These cases were divided into two groups, which were the concussion group and diffuse axonal injury (DAI) group established by Gennarelli. There were no findings on computerized tomography (CT) in the concussion group(More)
Emergency care of chest trauma has progressed greatly over the past two decades. Factors contributing to this progress include changes in the system for providing emergency medical services; the development of imaging diagnostic tools such as ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computerized dynamic stereo radiography;(More)
