Endothelial cell seeding is one of the methods commonly used to prepare an antithrombogenic surface for small caliber vascular prostheses. In this study, we investigated the perianastomotic tissue reaction of seeded grafts, using a canine model. Eight dogs were used to harvest endothelial cells (ECs) enzymatically from their external jugular veins, with one(More)
A 68-year-old patient visited our hospital, because of progressive renal failure. Laboratory data were serum creatinine 13.3 mg/dl, BUN 74.3 mg/dl, AGBMA 134U, MPO-ANCA 37% and CIC 1.6 g/dl. Hemodialysis was performed on admission and renal biopsy was conducted. Though the histological findings showed fibrocellular crescents and global sclerosis in many(More)

Endothelial seeded graft has been investigated for a small-caliber vascular graft. In this report, we established endothelial lining onto ultrafiber graft by the filtration method and implanted it to caine abdominal aorta. The grafts were harvested in 1 to 4 months and examined endothelialization and subendothelial structure by light microscopy and electron(More)
A 36-year-old woman was hospitalized because of nephrotic syndrome. On admission, laboratory studies revealed total protein 5.9g/dl, total cholesterol 381mg/dl, urine protein 2-4g/day, C3 68mg/dl(90-185mg/dl) and the immunological tests showed that antinuclear factor, anti-DNA antibodies and the LE cell phenomenon were positive. Renal function was within(More)
A rare case is reported of an 83-year-old woman with an aneurysm of a branch of the subclavian artery with multiple arteriovenous fistulae. The patient was admitted to our hospital with a pulsatile mass in the supraclavicular space and a prominent continuous murmur which radiated to the anterior chest, right forearm and right neck. She first noticed a(More)
We report two cases of tricuspid valve replacement for tricuspid valve insufficiency as reoperations following mitral valve replacement through midline sternotomy. A right thoracotomy was used to approach the tricuspid valve. To avoid the risk of cardiac laceration, cardiopulmonary bypass was instituted after cannulation of the femoral artery and of(More)
A 10 month-old infant with Down syndrome having ventricular septal defect and pulmonary hypertension performed cardiac catheterization, which resulted in a slight increase in the pulmonary vascular resistance from 10.8 to 11.3 unit.m2. Lung biopsy findings showed at most an early grade 2 Heath-Edwards classification, and an index of pulmonary vascular(More)
