Effects of a static magnetic field were studied on bone formation using an ischemic rat femur model. Metal rods were prepared from magnetized and unmagnetized samariun cobalt to have tapered structure, both with the same geometrical dimension, and were implanted transcortically into the middle diaphysis of 88 rat femurs. Both sides of the rat femoral artery(More)
Wandering spleen is not a common condition in childhood and has been described only rarely in association with gastric volvulus. The authors report the successful management of wandering spleen associated with gastric volvulus using laparoscopic splenopexy and gastropexy in a 4-year-old girl.
Pancreatoblastoma (PB) is extremely rare. A 11-year-old boy, who had excision of dilated common bile duct with hepaticoduodenostomy when 9 years old was referred to our institute for further management of abdominal pain and steatorrhea. Imaging studies showed a solid 4 cm tumor in the head of the pancreas and two lesions in the liver. Needle biopsies(More)
A cellulose membrane was exposed to the static magnetic field (SMF) in the presence of KCl solution and ion transport through the membrane was measured before and after the SMF exposure. SMF at 0.24 T significantly enhanced the rate of ion transport, especially after the first exposure (p<0.05), while the increased ion transport rate did not return to the(More)
Laboratory experiments revealed distinct effects of turbidity on the survival of Japanese anchovy Engraulis japonicus larvae when exposed to either visual (jack mackerel Trachurus japonicus) or tactile (moon jellyfish Aurelia aurita) predators. The experiments were conducted in 30 l tanks with three levels of turbidity obtained by dissolving 0, 50 or 300 mg(More)
