This study was performed to establish an experimental model of ischemia for the investigation of new treatment modality of limb-threatening ischemia. We produced ischemia in the hindlimbs of 8 New Zealand white rabbits. Under general anesthesia, the left femoral artery was exposed, freed, and excised from distal external iliac artery to proximal popliteal(More)
In this paper, a framework for off-line handwritten numeral string recognition based on stroke grouping is proposed. In our approach, strokes are aligned into a sequence of strokes and then segmentation process is performed to partition strokes in the sequence into possible-digits, that is, groups of strokes which may be possibly a digit. As the result of(More)
One important mechanism of drug resistance in acute leukemia is the overexpression of the multi-drug resistance (MDR1) gene that encodes a 170-kDa membrane protein called P-glycoprotein. To estimate the incidence and role of MDR1 gene expression in patients with acute leukemia, we investigated the expression of MDR1 by using the RT-PCR method in blast cells(More)
The purpose of this study was to define the abnormal findings of the prostate and seminal tract on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging by using an endorectal coil in patients with suspected obstructive infertility. MR imaging of the seminal tract with an endorectal surface coil was performed on 20 consecutive patients who were suspected of having obstructive(More)
