This paper describes our research interests and technical information of our team for RoboCup-99. Our robots have been developed to have a capability of a pass-based tactics. That is, the capability of receiving a ball from any direction and passing the ball to a desired robot. To achieve the capability, our robots have omnidirectional moving mechanisms and(More)
An 82-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital due to repeated episodes of syncope with incontinence. Electrocardiography showed torsades de pointes, complete atrioventricular (AV) block, T-wave inversions and a prolonged QTc interval. Urgent coronary angiography showed no significant coronary stenosis and left ventriculography demonstrated typical(More)
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is commonly associated with CREST (Calcinosis, Raynaud phenomenon, Esophageal motility disorders, Sclerodactyly, and Telangiectasia) syndrome. Sildenafil, an oral phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitor, may offer benefits in the pharmacological management of PAH. However, little is known about the long-term hemodynamic(More)
AIM Although distal embolization during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) deteriorates cardiac function, whether distal protection (DP) can improve prognosis is still controversial. We investigated whether a filter-type DP device, Filtrap®, could improve long-term outcomes after PCI for AMI. METHOD We studied(More)
