The aim of our study was to describe the radiologic findings of extensive acute lung injury associated with limited thoracic irradiation. Limited thoracic irradiation occasionally results in acute lung injury. In this condition, chest radiograph shows diffuse ground-glass appearance in both lungs and thin-section CT scans show diffuse bilateral ground-glass(More)
We performed an epidemiological study of the hepatitis C infection on 112 patients of 3 urban hemodialysis units using a recently developed anti-HCV recombinant based assay. Eleven patients (9.8%) were positive for anti-HCV. Among them, 8 (72.7%) were positive for anti-HBc, one of whom was HBsAg positive and 6 of whom were also anti-HBs positive.(More)
Plasminogen is a key proenzyme in the fibrinolytic and thrombolytic systems. Congenital deficiency of plasminogen and molecular abnormality of plasminogen (dysplasminogenemia) have been reported in association with the thrombotic tendency in human. In dysplasminogenemia, the level of immunoreactive plasminogen is normal, although the functional activity is(More)
PURPOSE Since 1993, Koreans have used diagnostic criteria set by the Korean Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (KSTH) in the diagnosis of overt disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). In 2001, the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SCC) of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) proposed new diagnostic criteria for the(More)
Protein S is found in two forms in plasma; as free and functionally active protein S, and complexed to C4b-binding protein. Patients with nephrotic syndrome are at risk for arterial and venous thrombosis at various localizations, and acquired protein S deficiency due to the selective urinary loss of the free form may be a risk factor for the development of(More)
There is increasing evidence that genes involved in normal cell growth and differentiation (oncogenes) or genes that encode for growth factors are important in determining the development and biologic aggressiveness of gastric carcinoma. This study was undertaken to define the prognostic value of the overexpression of p53 protein, c-erbB-2 protein, EGFr(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the correlation between factor XIII (FXIII) activity and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) parameters and also to evaluate the clinical usefulness of DIC diagnosis. Citrated plasma from eighty patients with potential DIC was analyzed for FXIII activity. The primary patient conditions (48 male and 32(More)
A rare case of gastric cancer associated with gastrojejunal and gastrocolic fistula is presented. A 56-year-old man who had been diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer(Borrmann's type III) 5 months previously was admitted due to watery diarrhea and frequent vomiting for 2 weeks. Fluoroscopic examination was visualized two abnormal passage of contrast medium(More)
This paper presents a spatial domain threshold based adaptive power-law applications (TAPLA) in image enhancement technique in which adaptation is carried out with local thresholds. This is an improved version of Adaptive Power-law Transformations (APLT) [14] in which adaptation is carried out with local means. The computational time of APLT is window-size(More)
Procoagulant or impaired fibrinolytic states as well as inflammatory reactions mediated by cytokines are likely involved in the pathogenesis of acute ischemic stroke. We examined the potential relationship between interleukin 6 (IL-6) and hemostatic markers. The procoagulant and fibrinolytic states were assessed in 46 patients with acute stroke by measuring(More)
