BACKGROUND In Japan the surgical approach to treatment of potentially curable gastric cancer, including extended lymphadenectomy, seems in retrospective surveys to give better results than the less radical procedures favoured in Western countries. There has, however, been no evidence from randomised trials that extended lymphadenectomy (D2 gastric(More)
We determined the concentration of cytosol estrogen receptors in the postnatal, developing right and left cerebral cortices of Long-Evans male or female rats 2 to 3, 7 to 8, 14 to 15, and 25 to 26 days of age. Under anesthesia, the rats were gonadectomized and 24 h later they were killed by decapitation, and the dorsal right and left cerebral cortices were(More)
We report the first human case of combined mammillary body and medial thalamic lesions due to focal pathology. A patient presented with a multi-lobular lesion that affected the mammillary bodies, the medial thalamus and the brain stem. On neuropsychological testing, he showed significant anterograde memory impairment, with marked impairment on delayed story(More)
One method used to examine the relationship between behavioral strategies and anatomical adaptation is to study the results of mechanical stress associated with a given behavior and compare this with skeletal adaptations to other behaviors. This comparative approach is appropriate for highlighting combinations of features that are specializations to(More)
We present a prospectus on the use of computer graphics for the three-dimensional reconstruction and visualization of brain lesions from computed tomographic head examinations, including an algorithm that utilizes surface contour information to reconstruct and display three-dimensional anatomical sites. We provide examples of the use of this algorithm. We(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the toxicity and response rate following BCNU with oxygen inhalation and escalating dosages of fluosol administered to patients with radiographic progression of malignant glioma after definitive surgery and radiotherapy. METHOD This single arm, phase I-II multicenter trial, enrolled 99 patients with malignant gliomas recurrent after(More)
This study was performed to investigate the effect of live, spontaneous harp music on individual patients in an intensive care unit (ICU), either pre- or postoperatively. The purpose was to determine whether this intervention would serve as a relaxation or healing modality, as evidenced by the effect on patient's pain, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood(More)
A three-dimensional surface reconstruction algorithm was devised from contour information based upon anatomic structures identified by computed tomographic (CT) scanning. The triangular 'tiling' method from which the algorithm was derived accurately reconstructs the surfaces between contours of both supra- and infra-tentorial anatomic sites. Volume and(More)
