In October 2004, Nagoya University has started an extension program on embedded software, called NEXCESS (Nagoya university EXtension Courses for Embedded Software Specialists). NEXCESS aims at education of engineers in industry, and is financially supported by the government. This paper describes the organization and course design of NEXCESS. Also, our(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanism of increased atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage due to ruptured aneurysms. ANP and BNP plasma concentrations were measured by immunoradiometoric assay in 53 patients at the day of onset of ruptured aneurysm, the correlation(More)
Hyponatremia and hypovolemia following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) might be speculated by exaggerated secretion of natriuretic peptides and resulted ischemic sequela caused by cerebral vasospasm. We measured serum concentration of natriuretic peptides and investigated their influence on post-SAH hyponatremia. Among 49 patients of SAH, their(More)
Evaluating HER2 gene amplification is an essential component of therapeutic decision-making for advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. A simple method that is applicable to small, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded biopsy specimens is desirable as an adjunct to or as a substitute for currently used HER2 immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization(More)
BACKGROUND Surgery within the insula carries significant risk of morbidity, particularly hemiparesis, because of the difficulty in detecting the internal capsule boundaries. OBJECTIVE We analyzed the anatomy of the insula and identified landmarks anticipated to facilitate surgery for intrinsic insular lesions. METHODS Insular region anatomy was studied(More)
An 86-year-old woman was admitted following generalized seizure. Postictally she showed disturbance of consciousness, right hemiparesis, and right spatial neglect. Brain fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging demonstrated mainly left-sided, but asymmetrical, subcortical white matter lesions. On the second day, level of consciousness improved,(More)
The embedded system industry in Japan needs more and more embedded software engineers. In 2004, Nagoya University has started an extension course program for embedded software engineers, called NEXCESS (Nagoya university EXtension Courses for Embedded Software Specialists). In the first year of NEXCESS, we have got aware of the tremendous need for the(More)
Heart transplantation (HTx) is an established therapy for stage D heart failure due to recent advances in immunosuppressive regimens. However, antibody-mediated rejection remains an unsolved problem because of its refractoriness to standard immunosuppressive therapy with high mortality and graft loss. We experienced a 16-year old patient with hemodynamic(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We investigated whether administration of edaravone, a free radical scavenger, before or during tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) can enhance early recanalization in a major arterial occlusion. METHODS The YAMATO study (Tissue-Type Plasminogen Activator and Edaravone Combination Therapy) is an investigator-initiated,(More)
The safety and efficacy of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulant (NOAC) compared with warfarin in treating patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) who developed acute ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (AIS/TIA), particularly those receiving tissue-plasminogen activator (tPA) therapy, remains unclear. Between April 2012 and December 2014,(More)
