PURPOSE To report the outcomes of continuous decompression using a cannulated ceramic pin for simple bone cysts (SBCs). METHODS Seven boys and 3 girls aged 7 to 16 (mean, 11) years with SBCs underwent curettage and continuous decompression using a cannulated ceramic pin. The pin was made of hydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate. The clinical course,(More)
This case report describes sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) caused by a large epicardial scar, related to dilated-phase hypertrophic cardiomyopathy mimicking VT originating from the apical septum. VT resolved with epicardial catheter ablation. The exit of the VT circuit suggested that a 12-lead electrocardiogram can be remote with respect(More)
AIMS We investigated the presence and clinical outcome of inducibility of atrial tachyarrhythmias after circumferential pulmonary vein isolation (CPVI) in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). METHODS AND RESULTS Sixty patients with symptomatic PAF underwent CPVI guided by 3D mapping and double Lasso technique. After achievement of CPVI, the(More)
Experiments were carried out on cats to determine the use of conductive evoked spinal cord action potentials in diagnosing motor function of the spinal cord. Direct stimulation from the dura produced three negative wave potentials, N1, N2 and N3. The intraspinal pathway of N2 and N3 was the dorsal column. The pathways of N1, determined by dorsal and ventral(More)
The ESCPs (evoked spinal cord potentials) resulting from both median nerve and spinal cord stimulation were recorded from the interlaminar yellow ligaments posteriorly or intervertebral discs anteriorly on patients with cervical myelopathy in order to determine the most significant lesion in the spinal cord electrophysiologically. The normal(More)
Spinal cord monitoring during surgery using evoked spinal potentials (ESP) is now popular. In cats, ESPs due to both sciatic nerve (SN-ESP) and spinal cord stimulation (SC-AESP and SC-DESP) were recorded from the epidural space. Both SN-ESP and SC-AESP were compared by parameter studies. Stimulus frequencies up to 100 Hz did not significantly alter the(More)
