Magnetic resonance imaging studies on 12 cases with hepatic disease were performed. In 11 adult patients with chronic hepatic failure, T1-weighted images demonstrated increased signal in the globus pallidus in 7 patients (63.6%) and in some parts of the cerebral peduncles in 6 patients (54.5%), in the substantia innominata in 4 patients (36.3%). There might(More)
We report a case of a 54-year-old man with sudden-onset double-vision. On admission, neurological examination showed upward and downward gaze palsy on voluntary and smooth pursuit movements, and vertical oculocephalic maneuver elicited a full upward and downward response.

The purpose of this study was to assess the factors for clinical outcome of the surgical treatment of acute type A aortic dissection. From April 1996 to March 2006, 44 patients underwent emergency operation for acute type A dissection within 2 weeks from the onset. Resection of the intimal tear was performad with open distal anastomosis. The mean age was(More)
Measurement of the maximal (Vmax) and minimal (Vmin) motor nerve conduction velocities was performed in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), bulbospinal muscular atrophy (BSMA), and control subjects. The collision method as described initially by Harayama and coworkers was used. This allowed for the correction of the velocity recovery effect (VRE) in Hopf's(More)
'w T ITHIN the past 3 years, during cardiac cTeatheterization performed for diagnostic studies, 18 patients were found who showed evidences of a ventricular septal defect with an associated patent ductus arteriosus. Four additional patients with this combination of lesions were discovered in a review of our files. In a survey of the literature isolated or(More)
We report a 73-year-old man who underwent total aortic arch replacement with an open stent graft for aortic arch aneurysm.
