To elucidate the local therapeutic results of computed tomography (CT)-guided transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as initial treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and to verify factors which affect local therapeutic results. From 1992 to 2002, 265 tumors of 79 HCC patients were treated by 139 sessions of CT-guided TACE as initial(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of echo-planar MR imaging for assessing the thyroid function and confirm the clinical use of MR imaging for thyroid diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four patients with a variety of thyroid disorders (24 Graves disease; five subacute thyroiditis; five Hashimoto thyroiditis) were examined using T1-, T2-, and(More)
The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the long-term results of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) for the treatment of local recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after the first TACE. Between September 1992 and October 2004, 85 recurrent HCC nodules of 35 patients were treated by TACE. During the median follow-up period(More)
We compared the growth rate of locally recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with that of primary HCC. After the first treatment by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), 60 locally recurrent HCC nodules were reviewed. The tumor volume doubling time (DT) of locally recurrent HCC was significantly shorter than that of primary HCC. The 95% lower(More)
The filiform papillae of subadult alligator (120 cm-260 cm total length) tongues are examined by scanning electron microscopy and electron microprobe analysis. The filiform papillae form cone-like structures and are observed over the entire dorsal surface of a relatively long tongue with a round tip. The filiform papillae are composed of four layers; outer,(More)
The petropharyngeal muscles were observed in 7 cadavers, 8 cases (1.4%) [both side: one case (0.3%), one side: 6 cases (1.9%)] in 614 Japanese cadavers. All cases of this supernumerary muscles of the stylopharyngeal muscle took origin from the petrous part of the temporal bone to inserted to the outer surface of the middle constrictor pharyngeal muscles.(More)
A supernumerary valvula of the pulmonary semilunar valve was found in a 51-year old, male Japanese. The valve was composed of three equal-sized valvulae and one smaller one with numerous fenestrations present. The supernumerary valvula was located between the anterior and right valvulae. We found this condition in one of 1407 cadavers examined.
PURPOSE This study evaluated the use of Tc-99m DTPA renography in patients with collagen disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tc-99m DTPA renal scintigraphy was performed in 28 patients with clinically diagnosed collagen disease. Twenty-two other patients who underwent renal scintigraphy and were subsequently shown to have no kidney abnormalities served as the(More)
Extraperitoneal spaces, such as the mesenteric space and the retroperitoneal space, can serve as areas that enable a reduction in the pressure exerted by extraperitoneal fluid collection and infiltrating diseases. In clinical practice, understanding the existence of these decompression spaces (or pathways) is very important for making accurate diagnoses.(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of pre-surgical nasoalveolar moulding (PNAM) on the maxillary arch and nasal form in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). SETTING AND SAMPLE POPULATION This is a retrospective case series study. The subjects were infants with complete UCLP who were treated with PNAM (n = 18) at Kagoshima University(More)
