In this paper, we present a structural and statistical approach for texture classification. It can achieve with a higher accuracy rate comparing to the Spatial Gray Level Dependence (SGLD) method and Laws' method. Our method uses the previously proposed operator, the Surface-Shape operator (SS-operator), for describing topographic structure of texture(More)
Pseudoarthrosis at the intervertebral space in patients with ankylosing spondylitis has occasionally been reported, but symptomatic pseudoarthrosis at the intervertebral disc level is rare in patients with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). Here, we report a case of symptomatic pseudoarthrosis at the L2-L3 intervertebral space that was(More)
We experienced 2 cases of spinal fracture in patients aged 80 years or older with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). Since they decided not to undergo surgical treatment, we provided conservative treatment with teriparatide. There has been no previous study on teriparatide for spine fracture in DISH. This is the first report of the successful(More)
We report a case of delayed myelopathy caused by atlantoaxial subluxation without fracture. The patient was a 38-year-old male who became aware of weakness in extremities. The patient had a history of hitting his head severely while diving into a swimming pool at the age of 14 years old. At that time, cervical spine plain X-ray images showed no fracture,(More)
In our department, first-generation cephem (CEZ) are generally administered for 2 days as antimicrobial prophylaxis (AMP) for spinal surgery. However, the incidence of surgical site infection (SSI) has recently increased, particularly cases involving coagulase-negative Staphylococci (CNS) as an etiologic agent. The objective was to elucidate the problems(More)
