We report a rare case of vesico-urethral foreign body with urinary fistula. On March 12, 2002, a 53-year-old single men inserted a 3 m vinyl tube 6 mm in diameter into his urethra by himself for the purpose of masturbation, but he could not remove the tube. He cut his urethra by himself and tried to remove the tube. The next day he was admitted to our(More)
The incidence of orthostatic intolerance is elevated in endurance-trained individuals. We sought to test the hypothesis that aerobic endurance training is associated with an attenuated control of the cerebral vasculature. Endurance trained (ET, n = 13) and age-matched untrained (UT, n = 11) individuals (peak O2 consumption, mean ± SEM; 63 ± 1 vs 42 ± 1(More)
A long survival case of small cell lung cancer synchronized with renal cancer was reported. The patient was a 73-year-old male, complaining of cough and fever up. The chest roentgenogram showed a tumor mass in the right lower lung field. The specimen obtained from transbronchial lung biopsy of right S8b was diagnosed as small cell carcinoma of lung. In the(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine whether the oxygenation level in an inactive muscle during an incremental exercise test, determined by near-infrared spectroscopy, influences the maximal oxygen uptake (V . o 2 max). The oxygenation level at the onset of incremental exercise was higher than that at rest and started to decrease at a high power(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility and toxicity of a preoperative alternating chemotherapy and radiotherapy program followed by surgery in stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The tumor response, resection rate, tumor/lymph node downstaging, and survival were also evaluated. The positive predictive value (PPV) in(More)
In 8 cases of advanced and/or relapsed gastric cancer (7 cases advanced, 1 case relapsed), we undertook combination chemotherapy with systemic administration of cisplatin and celiac arterial infusion of carboquone intermittently under continuous administration of OK-432 i.m. and UFT p.o. The male to female ratio was 5 to 3 and the age distribution from 53(More)
In order to evaluate the significance as a parameter for monitoring immunological status and for predicting therapeutic effect and prognosis, Su-PS skin test was performed in 68 cases of primary lung cancer treated with chemotherapy and administration of OK-432. In 16 of 68 cases, lymphocyte subsets of peripheral blood using Leu monoclonal antibodies were(More)
The patient, a 39-year-old man, presented in May 1997 with an untreated persistent cough with excessive sputum of 5 years' duration. He was admitted to hospital because of the severity of the symptoms and the presence of acid-fast bacilli in his sputum. These bacilli were identified as Mycobacterium tuberculosis by the polymerase chain reaction method.(More)
