BACKGROUND Little is known about the risks of mortality and morbidity after descending thoracic aortic aneurysm repair using left heart bypass and temporary arterioarterial bypass. METHODS A multicenter, retrospective study was performed on 120 patients who were admitted to one of nine cardiovascular centers between January 1988 and December 1993 and(More)
BACKGROUND Risks of increasing mortality and disability in aortic arch operations using the selective cerebral perfusion method for nondissecting aneurysm have not yet been determined. A multicenter, retrospective study was employed. METHODS The subjects were 143 patients who were admitted to one of the nine cardiovascular centers between January 1988 and(More)
Duplication of the alimentary tract is a rare congenital malformation that occurs most often in the abdominal region, whereas esophageal duplication cyst develops typically in the thoracic region but occasionally in the neck and abdominal regions. Esophageal duplication cyst is usually diagnosed in early childhood because of symptoms related to bleeding,(More)
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the efficacy and limitation of the non-quantitative analysis of renography using 99mTc-DTPA, and to determine the clinical indication of the quantitative analysis of the study. We evaluated the clinical records of the patients and the findings of dynamic imagings and renograms. The non-quantitative analysis of the(More)
Twenty-seven cases of colorectal carcinoma were evaluated by 67Ga-scintigraphy on the basis of clinicopathologic viewpoint. On each cases, 67Ga-scintigraphy was performed just before the operation, and resected specimen was also examined after the operation. In 17 cases (63%), the lesions were demonstrated on preoperative 67Ga-scintigraphy, on the other(More)
Transcatheter arterial infusion chemotherapy is one of the most useful therapeutic procedures for gynecologic malignancies. Recently, several reports have been published about Angiotensin II-induced hypertension chemotherapy and the efficacy of the method, but there have been no reports to evaluate an application for gynecologic malignancies. We evaluate(More)
Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a rare but serious postoperative complication of pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD). We reported a case of late-onset postoperative PVT with hemorrhage from the common hepatic artery (CHA) in a 73-year-old man who underwent pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (PPPD) for duodenum papilla cancer, followed by reconstruction(More)
Mixed Müllerian Tumor (M.M.T.) is a rare malignant neoplasm usually arising from uterine body in postmenoposal woman, and imaging diagnosis for the tumor has not been established. A 45-year-old female with pathologically confirmed M.M.T. was evaluated by 67Ga-citrate scintigraphy and CT on the basis of imaging diagnosis. 67Ga-citrate scintigraphy detected(More)
To study the application of cerebral blood flow scintigraphy with 123I-IMP for the evaluation of central dizziness, the difference in 123I-IMP accumulation between the right and left cerebellar hemispheres was determined as an asymmetry index (A.I.) in 8 normal subjects and compared with A.I. from patients with central dizziness. According to estimated(More)
In pelvic CT, several techniques (appropriate preparations) have been reported for the optimal diagnostic imagings. We demonstrated the usefulness and limitations of "Air Enema", which is one of preparations for hollow viscera in pelvic CT examination. From Oct. 1986 to Mar. 1987, 38 patients with gynecological abnormalities were evaluated by consecutive(More)
