Recent studies suggest that dipyridamole (DP) may exert stroke protective effects beyond platelet inhibition. The purpose of this study is to determine whether statin and DP could enhance stroke protection through nitric oxide (NO)-dependent vascular effects. Mice were pretreated with DP (10 to 60 mg/kg, q 12 h, 3 days) alone or in combination with a statin(More)
BACKGROUND Prior to 1994, plantar fascia ruptures were considered as an acute injury that occurred primarily in athletes. However, plantar fascia ruptures have recently been reported in the setting of preexisting plantar fasciitis. We analyzed risk factors causing plantar fascia rupture in the presence of preexisting plantar fasciitis. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND Supramlleolar osteotomy has been recommended to correct varus deformity of the tibial plafond, however we have seen only a few ankles with significant deviation of alignment in early stage osteoarthritis, in which realignment treatments might be necessary to modify the course of the disease. Our hypothesis was that there are diverse radiographic(More)
The objective of this study is to investigate heating performance characteristics of a coolant source heat pump using the wasted heat from electric devices for an electric bus. The heat pump, using R-134a, is designed for heating a passengers’ compartment by using discharged energy from the coolant of electric devices, such as motors and inverters of the(More)
BACKGROUND The origins and shapes of accessory digits in postaxial polydactyly of the foot were analyzed morphologically and radiographically, and their characteristics were determined. A simple classification method was then devised to assist in determining the most appropriate treatment options. METHODS We evaluated 113 feet of 95 patients who had(More)
Pedobarography can quantify static and dynamic foot pressure. Despite an increase in the clinical use of pedobarography, the results and the clinical diagnosis do not always correlate, leading to confusion and misdiagnosis. The authors evaluated the potential of pedobarography to diagnose several diseases associated with abnormal pressure across the plantar(More)
Glomus tumors are rare benign neoplasms. They typically present with a triad of severe pain, point tenderness, and cold sensitivity. Most glomus tumors will form well-circumscribed nodules, and excisional biopsy of masses detected by ultrasonography or magnetic resonance imaging of the lesion can relieve the symptoms. We describe a 30-year-old female(More)
BACKGROUND Transarticular lateral release through a medial incision can avoid a dorsal incision. This study investigated outcomes following hallux valgus correction using transarticular lateral release, distal chevron metatarsal osteotomy and Akin phalangeal osteotomy through one medial incision. METHODS Between June 2004 and May 2009, a single surgeon(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the difference in clinical and radiographic outcomes between conventional open lateral soft tissue release (OLSTR) and transarticular lateral soft tissue release (TLSTR) in patients undergoing distal chevron metatarsal osteotomy (DCMO) for hallux valgus (HV) correction. This study included weight-bearing(More)
