Transthoracic echocardiography revealed impaired left ventricular function and a ball mass of thrombus in the left ventricle (LV). He was found to have systemic embolism in the spleen, kidneys, brain, and limbs. The patient was treated with limb(More)
To explore the change in age distribution of patients with uterine cervical cancer and its precursors, we analyzed 2,168,923 women in a series of mass screening for uterine cervical cancer in Fukushima Prefecture. The first examination rate was not increased over a 20-year period. During the screening period, severe dysplasia was found in 693 women,(More)
There are often false-positive alerts of thoracic impedance monitoring; however, the "false-positive alerts" might indicate any clinical problem of patient. In the present case, an alert for a drop in intrathoracic impedance, which generally indicates exacerbation of heart failure, enabled early detection of twiddler syndrome.
In order to determine the would healing process in the portio vaginalis uteri, 3[H]-thymidine incorporation and hydroxyproline concentration in the granulation tissue were measured histochemically after CO2-laser treatment. As a result, the squamous epithelium showed the thymidine uptake in extended regions in the first week and in basel cell hyperplastic(More)
Even in the era of thrombus aspiration and distal protection for ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI), microvascular dysfunction does exist and improvement of microvascular dysfunction can improve the prognosis and/or left ventricular dysfunction. We evaluated the acute effects of nitroprusside (NTP) on coronary microvascular injury that(More)
