Radiotherapy for malignant pelvic disease is often followed by acute radiation colitis (ARC). It has been reported that sucralfate treatment has a protective effect against ARC, though the mechanisms of action are unknown. The effects of sucralfate on X-ray radiation-induced apoptosis was studied at 4 Gy in the colonic crypt cells of rats. Sucralfate enemas(More)
Multichannel near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) could detect change in the regional cerebral oxygenation by following animated pictures of oxy-hemoglobin (OxyHb), deoxy-hemoglobin (DeoxyHb) and total hemoglobin in operations for three surgical cases of thoracic aortic aneurysm with selective cerebral perfusion (SCP). Simultaneously measured jugular venous(More)
PURPOSE To examine the relationship between incidence of later, local vascular events (restenosis and occlusion) and clinical factors including lipid levels after surgical or endovascular treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD). METHODS Consecutive 418 PAD lesions (in 308 patients under the age of 70) treated with surgical (n = 188) or endovascular(More)
PURPOSE To examine the relationship between the incidence of later cardiovascular events after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery and postoperative lipid levels. METHODS Atherosclerotic risk factors including postoperative serum lipid levels were examined in 116 patients aged 70 or less undergoing an elective AAA surgery. Later cardiovascular events(More)
PURPOSE To determine the predictive value of serum lipid levels on the development of later cardiovascular events after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. METHODS A total of 101 patients under 70 undergoing an elective AAA surgery were divided into the following two groups: 1) those who developed later cardiovascular events after AAA surgery,(More)
