Thoracic surgery creates a different environment from abdominal surgery in respect to the surgical procedure with pulmonary collapse under unilateral ventilation. Definitive evidence whether surgical trauma during thoracotomy is involved in postoperative pulmonary infections has not been clearly demonstrated. The objectives of this study were to evaluate(More)
The objective of this study was to clarify the patterns of recurrence and prognosis after resection of intraductal papillary mucinous tumors (IPMTs). Fourteen patients with IPMT were reviewed histologically; intraductal papillary adenocarcinoma was present in 12 cases and intraductal papillary adenoma in 2. Six patients were alive with no evidence of(More)
We isolated cDNA clones for novel protein kinases by expression cloning from Lotus japonicus. The LNZ001, one of the isolated clones, encodes a protein of 547 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 63,349. Since the protein contains 12 highly conserved subdomains specific to Ser/Thr protein kinases, we designated it PKL01. When homology searches(More)
We report a case of a resected hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) protruding from the liver surface. A 69-year-old male with diabetes mellitus was admitted to hospital for investigation of an hepatic mass. An irregularly shaped, low-echoic mass measuring 21 × 18 mm was identified by ultrasound in S6. On computed tomography, the tumor appeared to be(More)
INTRODUCTION Kyphoscoliosis, which is a deformity of the spine caused by aging and osteoporosis, results in various surgical difficulties for laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) due to low-lying costal arches, such as a small abdominal working space, disturbance of the surgical view and decreased controllability of the surgical instrument. PRESENTATION OF(More)
Recurrence rates after hepatic resection in patients with colorectal metastases are reported to range from 47% to 80%. Hepatic recurrence is seen in 35% to 50% of patients. Aggressive surgical resection appears to be a worthwhile treatment in patients with recurrent hepatic metastases to promote longer patient survival because surgical resection remains the(More)
