Background: We examined the findings of contrast-enhanced multidetector-row computed tomography (MD-CT) in patients with colonic perforation. Methods: Abdominal contrast-enhanced MD-CT findings in six patients with colonic perforation were reviewed retrospectively. Patients (three men and three women) were 74 to 88 years old (mean age = 78 years). Colonic(More)
This report concerns 2 cases with blunt traumatic hernia of the diaphragm. The diagnosis of these cases had been delayed by 1 month and 6 years, respectively. The former was a left sided case, which had suddenly suffered severe dyspnea. An emergency operation revealed the dislocated stomach into the left thoracic cavity. The latter was a right sided case,(More)
Surgical cases of massive pulmonary embolism remain rare in Japan. To discuss the surgical problems, clinical courses of 4 patients who underwent pulmonary embolectomy under cardiopulmonary bypass at our hospital for the last six years were reviewed. There were 2 men and 2 women; ranging from 41 to 72 years (mean age, 63 years), 1 of whom had deep venous(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies suggest that radiation-induced injuries to the hippocampus play important roles in compromising neurocognitive functioning for patients with brain tumors and it could be important to spare the hippocampus using modern planning methods for patients with craniopharyngiomas. As bilateral hippocampus are located on the same level as(More)
Although hypofractionated radiotherapy (HFRT) is preferred to conventionally fractionated radiotherapy when treating elderly patients with glioblastoma, the benefits and tolerability of HFRT with concurrent temozolomide (TMZ) remain unknown for such patients. We assessed the feasibility and outcomes of elderly patients with glioblastoma treated with HFRT(More)
PURPOSE Reducing the radiation dose to the hippocampus is important to preserve cognitive function in patients with brain tumors. The Vero4DRT system can realize a new irradiation technique, termed volumetric-modulated Dynamic WaveArc therapy (VMDWAT), which allows the safe use of sequential noncoplanar volumetric-modulated beams without couch rotation.(More)
