AIM To study the clinical findings and characteristic features in sciatic notch dumbbell tumors (SNDTs). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the clinical outcomes and characteristic features of consecutive cases of SNDTs (n = 8). RESULTS Buttock masses occurred in three patients with SNDT (37.5%). Severe buttock tenderness and pain at rest were observed(More)
This case report describes a patient with a history of epileptic seizures who showed unusual decreases in the Bispectral Index (BIS) attributable to the induction of abnormal slow electroencephalographic (EEG) waves by photic stimulation, without any associated decrease in his level of consciousness. After starting anticonvulsive therapy, photic stimulation(More)
Dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma (DDCS) is a rare and aggressive bone tumor with poor prognosis. Primary DDCS of the mobile spine is extremely rare, particularly in the cervical spine. We herein describe a first case of cervical DDCS in an 81-year-old male presenting with a slowly growing mass. Radiographs showed an expansion of the cortical contour of the(More)
Lumbar spinal canal stenosis (LSCS) is one of the most common spinal disorders in elderly people, with the number of LSCS patients increasing due to the aging of the population. The ligamentum flavum (LF) is a spinal ligament located in the interior of the vertebral canal, and hypertrophy of the LF, which causes the direct compression of the nerve roots(More)
BACKGROUND When spinal kyphosis increases, the compensatory mechanism activates and the pelvic position changes. Increasing the pelvic tilt, which is the orientation of the pelvis with respect to the femoral head, is known to associate with the clinical symptoms in kyphosis in the aging population. It is often difficult to detect the femoral head on(More)
Although spine injuries are not always detectable on postmortem computed tomography (PMCT), spinal hyperostosis, an important risk factor for spine injury, is relatively easily detectable on PMCT. We therefore examined the utility of the detection of spinal hyperostosis on PMCT as an indicator of spine injury. Full-body PMCT images of 88 autopsy cases with(More)
BACKGROUND Right thoracic curvature, rib cage deformities and aortic left shift are features of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis that are correlated with each other. We recently reported that disturbance of ribcage development results in progressive thoracic scoliosis in mice. Recently, it has been confirmed that the normal spine exhibits right thoracic(More)
Study Design Retrospective cohort study. Objectives The mechanism underlying the pain relief observed following balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) to vertebral compression fractures is reported to involve stabilization of the fractured vertebrae. However, whether fixation of the vertebrae was achieved immediately after BKP has not been investigated. The purpose of(More)
Temperature changes of the first finger and toe were evaluated in patients under spinal anesthesia. One hundred and thirty female patients who were to undergo cesarean section were selected for this study. During spinal anesthesia the changes in skin temperature were classified in three patterns. The first pattern showed a rise of the first finger and toe(More)
A prognosis study was carried out on 30 cases of patients treated with behavior therapy. The treatments, which took more than three years before the study, averaged four years and eight months. The results are as follows: (1) The improvement achieved by therapy was maintained or further improved in 29 cases during the post-therapeutic period of more than(More)
