A retrospective analysis of oral and maxillofacial injuries in motor vehicle accidents.
Because wearing seat belts cannot prevent all oral and maxillofacial injuries in motor vehicle occupants, both physicians and engineers must pay greater attention to the mechanisms of oral andmaxillof facial injuries in TAs. Expand
Fungi can be a useful forensic tool.
It is suggested that fungi can provide an useful means of estimating the minimum interval since death when forensic entomology is not applicable. Expand
Analysis of maxillofacial injuries of vehicle passengers involved in frontal collisions.
Combined use of seat belts and airbags by occupants decreases fractures compared with completely unrestrained occupants, and wearing a seat belt prevents the free flight of drivers within a vehicle and contact with the interior of a vehicle (other than the steering wheel). Expand
Biomechanical analysis of acute subdural hematoma resulting from judo.
It is concluded that occipital head contact produced the most forceful longitudinal linear and sagittal plane angular accelerations; subsequent stretches and ruptures of parasagittal bridging veins resulting in acute subdural hematoma. Expand
A newly derived protein from Bacillus subtilis natto with both antithrombotic and fibrinolytic effects.
In vitro and in vivo studies suggest that NKCP has both a fibrinolytic effect and an antithrombotic effect similar to heparin. Expand
A case of fatal benzalkonium chloride poisoning
Abstract Five elderly persons with senile dementia accidentally ingested Hoesmin, a 10% aqueous solution of benzalkonium chloride (BAC). The condition of one patient, an 84-year-old woman whose lipsExpand
Analysis of fungi detected in human cadavers.
This is the first study to describe in detail the species of fungus obtained from human cadavers, and it is suggested that more forensic cases is needed to develop fungi into the forensic tool. Expand
Development of finite element model for child pedestrian protection
Rheologic changes in venous blood during prolonged sitting.
The results show that 2 h of quiet sitting can increase thrombotic tendency locally in the leg but not systemically and suggests the importance of measuring focal venous blood viscosity. Expand
Changes in blood viscosity by heparin and argatroban.
BV in accordance with blood coagulability are indexes of thrombotic tendency and that decreasing BV prevents life-threatening thromboembolic conditions. Expand
