Anaerobic power output was measured by the staircase climb test in 14 obese, 16 lean, and 21 ordinary men aged from 18–22 years. Fat storage rate (%fat) was estimated by densitometry. The obese group ranked highest with an average power output of 1,012 W. This value was significantly higher than those of the other two groups, 890 W for lean subjects and 855(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to determine the most appropriate type of operation for the improvement of the radical cure rate and QOL of patients with urachal cancer. We assessed the association between the stage, type of operation, and prognosis of cases we experienced and those reported in Japan. PATIENTS AND METHOD The subjects included 15 cases(More)
BACKGROUND Vesicourethral anastomotic stricture (VAS) is a rare but serious complication following radical prostatectomy (RP), and various types of managements for VAS have been proposed. We investigated the efficacy of transurethral balloon dilation in the management of VAS after RP. METHODS A total of 128 consecutive patients underwent open RP at our(More)
Small cell carcinoma of the prostate is known to have a poor prognosis. We report a case of a large pelvic tumor with small cell carcinoma, which responded well to docetaxel. A 72-year-old man who was receiving androgen-deprivation therapy for prostatic adenocarcinoma presented with constipation. Although the prostate specific antigen level had decreased, a(More)
We report a case of meningitis-retention syndrome followed by urodynamic tests. A 48-year-old man was admitted to the hospital for an undiagnosed fever with headache and urinary retention. Aseptic meningitis was suspected according to cerebrospinal fluid analyses, and urodynamic test showed an underactive detrusor, leading to inadequate contraction of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a rare but serious condition due to heparin use for treating thromboprophylaxis, regardless of the dosage. Here, we present a case of non-immune thrombocytopenia caused by thromboprophylaxis for urological surgery, which is sometimes difficult to discriminate from immune-mediated thrombocytopenia. (More)
In Japan, freeze-dried live attenuated mumps vaccine has been used optionally since 1981. The effectiveness of mumps vaccination has been established by worldwide research since 1971. On the other hand, because of it's live activity several untoward effects have been reported. Vaccination-related mumps orchitis is a rare adverse effect of mumps vaccine.(More)
Heart rate (HR) and 133-Xe clearance of four leg muscles (mm. vastus lateralis, gastrocnemius, tibialis anterior, and soleus) were monitored by portable transducers in six subjects during and after 100-m and 400-m runs on an indoor track. The recordings were fed into a PDP-11/34 computer system for further computation. After 100 m the fast recovery phase(More)
