Deformation and stress distribution caused by putaminal hemorrhage in two-dimensional model brain were analyzed by computer simulation using finite element method. The model brain was composed of cerebral cortex, white matter, caudate nucleus, lenticular nucleus, thalamus and lateral ventricle. Young's modulus of gray and white matter was assumed to be 0.08(More)
We studied the ability of domestic cats to distinguish familiarity based on faecal odours. This was evaluated by comparing the sniffing duration of cats’ own, familiar, and unfamiliar faeces. We found that (1) sniffing durations differed between unfamiliar faeces and the other types of faeces, (2) sniffing durations of faeces of the same unfamiliar(More)
SUMMARY One hundred and seventy patients with ruptured cerebral aneurysms were treated by coil embolization from September 1997 to December 2002. After January 2000, coil embolization was selected as the first-choice treatment for ruptured aneurysms. During this period, the authors investigated the number of aborted cases, the number of complications, and(More)
The effect of phosphorothioated antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (AS ODN) against the mu-opioid receptor (MOR) on MOR mRNA level in the periaqueductal gray (PAG) of rat brain was investigated. The MOR mRNA levels at 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 h after MOR AS ODN microinjection into the PAG were determined by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. The(More)
A case of intraaxial clear cell ependymoma is reported. A 46-year-old man complained of right hemiparesis. CT scan showed a mass lesion on the median plane with a huge cyst in the left frontal lobe. MRI showed an iso-low intensity mass by T1-weighted image. The tumor was heterogeneously enhanced by Gd-DTPA and the wall was enhanced as well. Angiogram(More)
The clinical significance of continuous intracarotid infusion of a small dose of mannitol (ICI of mannitol) was discussed. Eighteen patients suffering from severe head injury with Glasgow coma scale (GCS) less than 6 were treated by ICI of mannitol for the improvement of raised intracranial pressure (ICP). In all of these 18 cases, conventional venous(More)
