The behavior of rust fungi in their host plants has been elucidated by electron microscopy. However, most of the ultrastructural studies on rust fungi have focused on the uredial stage. In order to elucidate the features of the sporidial stage, we studied the fine structure of Kuehneola japonica, a short-cycle rust, in rose leaves. Infection pegs arising(More)
The aim was to examine the influence of the independent increase of aortic wall characteristics from vascular resistance on global left ventricular (LV) function in intact hearts. In 11 anesthetized dogs, aortic stiffness was increased by a constriction of the thoracic aorta using a stiff tube, and then, in nine dogs, total systemic resistance (TSR) was(More)
This study was designed to examine the effects of an adenylate cyclase activator, NKH477, on epicardial and endocardial contraction and coronary blood flow (CoF) in the presence or absence of ischemia and to compare it to those of adenosine. We measured coronary pressures (CoP), coronary blood flow, epicardial and endocardial wall thickening (i.e., %EPWT(More)
The patient was a 38-year-old man. A cystostomy catheter had been inserted when he was 23 years of age for neuropathic bladder due to cervical spinal cord injury at 20 years of age. Purulent discharge from around the cystotomy had continued for approximately 4 months. Examination revealed the formation of a subcutaneous tumor around the cystostomy, with(More)
A 77-year-old female was indicated pelvic mass and hydronephrosis when her examination of advanced gastric cancer. Computed tomography revealed left ureteral dilatation and mass around the left ureter. Laparotomy biopsy was abandoned because of her low cardiac function. Thereafter, hemorrhagic stool was observed and colonoscopy revealed hemorrhagic mucosal(More)
Disseminated carcinomatosis of the bone marrow with urothelial carcinoma in a 75-year-old man: A case study. A 75-year-old-man had first medical examination due to gross hematuria. The imaging study and cystoscopy revealed left ureteral and bladder tumor. The patient was referred for a laparoscopic assisted left nephroureterectomy and transurethral(More)
A 51-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of continuing back pain for 2 weeks. Computed tomography revealed a mass 30x40 mm in diameter adjacent to the left adrenal gland. We performed laparoscopic surgery in order to relieve the symptoms and make a diagnosis. Because there was adhesion between the mass and gastric wall, the mass was resected(More)
