Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) dialysis grafts in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are prone to thrombotic failure. The objective of this multicenter, randomized, double-blind,… Expand
Idiopathic membranous nephropathy in the elderly: a comparative study.
This is a retrospective study of 74 elderly patients (60 years of age or older) with idiopathic membranous nephropathy. They represented 23% of the total of 323 cases of idiopathic membranous… Expand
Changes in Waist Circumference and Body Mass Index in Relation to Changes in Serum Uric Acid in Japanese Individuals
Objective. Studies have shown that obesity is associated with an increase in serum uric acid; and few data are available on the relationship between changes in measures of obesity and changes in uric… Expand
Serum levels of myoglobin, creatine phosphokinase, and smooth muscle heavy-chain myosin in patients with ectopic pregnancy.
STUDY OBJECTIVE Serum markers of smooth muscle destruction have been shown to be elevated in ectopic pregnancy, but they remain of questionable clinical utility. Our goal was to determine the… Expand
Steroid therapy and prognosis of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis in the elderly.
Idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is an infrequent renal biopsy diagnosis in the elderly. In our single-centre referral registry there were only 17 cases seen in 822 biopsies… Expand
Low-intensity adjusted-dose warfarin for the prevention of hemodialysis catheter failure: a randomized, controlled trial.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To determine whether warfarin prolongs the time to first mechanical-catheter failure. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS This was a multicenter parallel-group… Expand
Effects of calcium channel blocker-based combinations on intra-individual blood pressure variability: post hoc analysis of the COPE trial
Visit-to-visit blood pressure (BP) variability is an important predictor of stroke. However, which antihypertensive drug combination is better at reducing visit-to-visit BP variability and therefore… Expand
Improved survival in patients with continuous-flow ventricular assist device for bridge to heart transplantation.
BACKGROUND Contemporary continuous-flow ventricular assist devices (CFVADs) have greatly improved patient survival for indications of bridge to transplantation (BTT) and destination therapy. In… Expand

STUDY OBJECTIVE Previous studies have suggested that serum markers of smooth muscle destruction have utility in predicting ectopic pregnancy. Our goal was to determine whether a novel marker of… Expand
Nanometer Pattern-Mask Fabricated by Conventional Photolithography
A novel method to fabricate a nanometer-size pattern-mask by conventional photolithography is proposed. In the method, titanium oxide (TiO2) grown laterally by anodic oxidation at the side-edge of a… Expand
