7545 Background: Although the overall incidence of BM is not known, bone metastases are a frequent complication in pts with advanced lung cancer. Bone metastases can be associated with SREs, which include pathologic fracture, need for surgery or radiation to bone, spinal cord compression, and hypercalcemia of malignancy. The aim of our study is to(More)
Aromatase inhibitors are superior to tamoxifen as adjuvant therapy in postmenopausal patients with hormone-responsive breast cancer. We report the follow-up efficacy results from the N-SAS BC 03 trial (UMIN CTRID: C000000056) where anastrozole was compared with tamoxifen as adjuvant therapy in postmenopausal Japanese patients with hormone-responsive early(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the feasibility and accuracy of virtual partial nephrectomy analysis, including a color-coded three-dimensional virtual surgical planning and a quantitative functional analysis, in predicting the surgical outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. METHODS Between 2012 and 2014, 20 patients underwent virtual partial nephrectomy(More)
BACKGROUND Patients who have residual invasive carcinoma after the receipt of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer have poor prognoses. The benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy in these patients remains unclear. METHODS We randomly assigned 910 patients with HER2-negative residual invasive breast(More)
The predictive model of postoperative renal function may impact on planning nephrectomy. To develop the novel predictive model using combination of clinical indices with computer volumetry to measure the preserved renal cortex volume (RCV) using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), and to prospectively validate performance of the model. Total 60(More)
OBJECTIVE Physical performance measures (PPMs) are good predictors of adverse health outcomes in later life. This prospective study used repeated measures analysis to examine sex-specific age trends in PPMs, identify potential PPM trajectory patterns, and determine whether PPM trajectory patterns were associated with all-cause mortality among older(More)
Renal volume change greatly affects renal function after nephrectomy. Although various measuring techniques were reported, no standard measuring method is available. In this study, we examined the computational automated volumetric method, and evaluated the volumetric change to assess the functional outcome in patients undergoing radical nephrectomy. We(More)
PURPOSE To prevent overtreatment, it is very important to diagnose the precise distribution and characteristics of all cancer lesions, including small daughter tumors. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (T2W), diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy(More)
Rotational acetabular osteotomy (RAO) is one of the surgical procedures for painful dysplastic hips. Although several risk factors for poor outcome of RAO have been reported, the presence of a curtain osteophyte in the acetabulum has not been evaluated as a possible risk factor. This study aimed to analyze the risk factors affecting the outcome of RAO and(More)
