Focal macular electroretinograms (MERGs) were recorded with a fundus monitor through an infrared television fundus camera in 112 eyes of 112 normal subjects (68 males, 44 females), using three stimulus spots 5 degrees, 10 degrees, and 15 degrees in diameter. The amplitude and the implicit time of the a-wave, h-wave, and oscillatory potentials (OPs), and the(More)
A second pulmonary resection after initial operation for lung cancer was performed 20 patients (10 with a second primary lung cancer, 8 with a metastatic lung cancer, 2 with lung abscess in pulmonary aspergillosis). All patients had radical lobectomy in first operation. Eight patients underwent completion pneumonectomy, one patient had another lobectomy,(More)
Lung cancer commonly occurs in individuals who are 60 years of age or older. Lung cancer in patients younger than 40 years of age is rare and is often advanced when discovered. However, the biological features of lung cancer in young adults have not yet been fully elucidated. This study was conducted to determine the role of p53 expression and(More)
Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency with a defect of the pyrimidine catabolic pathway has recently become the focus of considerable attention, due to the severe 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) toxicities occurring in DPD deficiency patients. Studies also suggest that 5-FU toxicities could occur in another pyrimidine metabolic disorder,(More)
A case of secondary myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) following chemotherapy for lung cancer is reported. A 78-year-old man, with a smoking history of 20 cigarettes/day for 55 years, was incidentally, diagnosed as having stage IV squamous cell carcinoma of the lung in 1987 during admission for transurethral resection of bladder cancer. He received combination(More)
We report a case of N 3 gastric cancer successfully treated by TS-1 followed by curative resection. The patient was a 64-year-old male. Gastrointestinal endoscopic examination showed advanced gastric cancer. Examination by computed tomography revealed gastric cancer and swollen para-aortic lymph nodes. This patient was treated by neoadjuvant chemotherapy(More)
The aim of this study was to clarify whether the anaerobic threshold (AT) in patients with ischemic heart disease is determined by exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. A) The reproducibility of the VO2 at the AT (AT VO2) were studied. In 13 patients with exercise-induced myocardial ischemia, submaximal Treadmill exercise tests were performed twice using a(More)
We treated and followed up for 6 years a patient with pyridoxine-responsive sideroblastic anemia. The patient was a boy age 1 year and 9 months, who was diagnosed on the basis of peripheral red cell morphology and an increased number of sideroblasts in the bone marrow. Bone marrow erythroblasts showed a marked reduction of delta-aminolevulinic acid synthase(More)
The case of a 41-year-old man who developed an aneurysm in his aberrant left subclavian artery is described. The patient had a right aortic arch. After a successful aortosubclavian artery bypass, symptoms due to brain ischemia disappeared. This is a very rare disease that is sometimes associated with an aortic anomaly, therefore the optimal therapeutic(More)
