AIM Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) nodules close to the liver surface exhibit high recurrence compared to those in distal parts of the liver. Moreover, when nodules remain adjacent to the gastrointestinal tract or gallbladder, severe complications such as perforation of those organs may occur due to invasive therapy. Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation(More)
High-resolution transmission-electron microscopy (HRTEM) and infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analyses have been done on amphiboles near the join tremolite [Ca2Mg5Si8O22(OH)2 = TR]-pargasite [NaCa2Mg4Al3Si6O22(OH)2 = PG] in the ternary system tremolite-pargasite-cummingtonite [Mg7Si8O22(OH)2 = MC] that were synthesized previously by Sharma and Jenkins (1999).(More)
Herein, we report four cases of a single liver metastasis after gastric cancer resection. Initially, we chose to perform hepatic arterial infusion( HAI) with high-dose 5-fluorouracil( 5-FU)( 6,000 mg/week) or weekly 500-750 mg of 5-FU. Three patients showed a partial response (PR) and one patient showed no change (NC). Therefore, we performed hepatectomy or(More)
We report a 67-year-old woman who had stiff shoulders and anemia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a pedunclated nodular submucosal tumor with erosions and surface ulcers in the second portion of the duodenum. These endoscopic findings were thought to be characteristic of gangliocytic paraganglioma. CT scan revealed suspected lymph node metastasis,(More)
Ultrasound-guided procedures are sometimes of limited use because the tumor is located under the diaphragm or near the surface of the liver. We investigated the safety and efficacy of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) with artificial pleural effusion and/or artificial ascites. Between January 2002 and May 2006, 43 lesions in 36 patients with hepatocellular(More)
AIM Chemotherapy for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with hypersplenism is generally unsatisfactory, as a lower-dose therapy is usually administered. Splenectomy may represent a better approach to overcoming the complication due to hypersplenism in patients with advanced HCC. This retrospective study was conducted to evaluate whether HCC(More)
Shirozulite is a new Mn-dominant trioctahedral mica from the Taguchi mine, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The mineral occurs in tephroite-rhodochrosite ores in contact with a Ba-bearing, K-feldspar vein. Shirozulite formed during regional low-P/T metamorphism and, thereafter, suffered thermal metamorphism from a local granodiorite. Grains of shirozulite are up to(More)
OBJECTIVE Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) with gelatin sponge particles and iodized oil often yields poor results when used to treat unresectable multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The present study retrospectively investigated the utility of a novel combination chemotherapy regimen for treating multifocal HCC resistant to TAE. METHODS(More)
