STUDY DESIGN An in vivo flexion-extension magnetic resonance imaging study. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the kinetic changes of the cervical spinal cord after laminoplasty in patients with cervical myelopathy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy increases the space occupied by the spinal cord, leading to a decompressive effect on(More)
STUDY DESIGN A case of Horner's syndrome caused by a thoracic dumbbell-shaped schwannoma is reported. OBJECTIVES To report a rare case of a mediastinal dumbbell-shaped schwannoma as a cause of Horner's syndrome and to show the result of intercostal nerve grafting for sympathetic chain reconstruction after resection of the sympathetic nerve. SUMMARY OF(More)
The amyloid fibril of a fragment of the substrate binding site of αA-crystallin (αAC(71-88)) exhibited chaperone-like activity by suppressing the aggregation of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and luciferase. By contrast, the amyloid fibril of the cytotoxic fragment of amyloid β protein (Aβ(25-35)) facilitated the aggregation of the same proteins. We have(More)
STUDY DESIGN This prospective study analyzed preoperative and postoperative dynamic changes of the spinal cord in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy. OBJECTIVE (1) To study preoperative kinematic characteristics of the spinal cord in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy and compare results with healthy individuals, (2) to understand(More)
Various imaging diagnostic technologies are studied and used in practical. It is necessary to develop the automatic diagnosing processing system for detecting the internal organ. In Japan, cardiac disease is one of the most common cause of death. Therefore, it is necessary to measure cardiac function quantitatively and evaluate the motions of continuous(More)
The outbreak of infectious diseases such as influenza, dengue fever, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) are threatening the global health. Especially, developing countries in the South-East Asia region have been at serious risk. Rapid and highly reliable screening of infection is urgently needed during the epidemic season at mass gathering places,(More)
Lethal effects of concentrated CO2 at 40 °C on adult females and eggs of Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) and Frankliniella intonsa (Trybom) were examined. No female adult of F. occidentalis survived after 3 h exposure to 10 % CO2. No female adult of F. intonsa survived after 3 h exposure to 30 % CO2. Tolerance of eggs to CO2 exposure was higher than(More)
