We report a 20-year-old man with glycogen storage disease type Ia (GSD Ia) who presented multiple hepatocellular adenomas (HCAs) in 1993 and in whom percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) was conducted as treatment for some enlarging tumors beneath the liver surface. In a 6-year follow-up period, we observed gradual enlargement of some of the HCAs, and the(More)
Since the 3rd century for more than a thousand years chemistry has been thought of as a complicated, hard-to-predict science. Efforts to improve even a part of its unpredictable character are said to have born fruit first of all in the success of the " electronic theory ". This was founded mainly by organic chemists , such as Fry, Stieglitz, Lucas, Lapworth(More)
We present a general approach for describing chemical processes (bond breaking and bond formation) in materials using force elds (FF) that properly describe multiple bonds at small distances while describing nonbond (Coulomb and van der Waals) interactions at long distances. This approach is referred to as the generalized extended empirical bond-order(More)
Decreased effective circulating blood volume is an important factor in ascites formation in liver cirrhosis. We designed a "body compression" apparatus as a means to restore effective blood volume and investigated its effectiveness in reducing ascites formation in cirrhotics in terms of its effect on parameters of ascites formation noted below.
