OBJECTIVE Our goal was to evaluate the long-term results of vein bypass grafts for axillary artery occlusion, specifically those placed extra-anatomically to prevent arterial injury in pitchers. METHODS With the greater saphenous veins used as the selected conduit, arterial bypass grafts were routed anterior to the pectoralis minor muscle in four baseball(More)
We manipulated Collembola Folsomia candida Willem density and observed the density effect on carbon and nitrogen mineralization and on nematodes in microcosms filled with mineral soil. Collembolan densities were 0 (control), 25 (low), 100 (medium), and 400 (high) individuals per microcosm. The Collembola enhanced soil respiration and nitrogen mineralization(More)
Transcatheter hepatic arterial embolization for not only hepatocellular carcinoma but metastatic liver cancers is nowadays prevalent. Gall bladder infarction, cholangitis, peptic ulcers, pancreatitis, and aneurysm are reported as complications of it. But the liver abscess following it is rare. We reviewed three cases of liver abscesses after transcatheter(More)
Solid and cystic tumor of pancreas is an uncommon neoplasm which is histologically low grade malignant but amenable to cure by surgical excision. It tends to occur in young women. US and CT depict a well circumscribed mass that can be solid, mixed solid and cystic and largely cystic. Their ratio depends on the degree of hemorrhage and necrosis. Angiography(More)
A 44-year-old man with neurofibromatosis suffered from severe diarrhea and progressive hypoproteinemia. Enteric protein loss was confirmed by an α-antitrypsin clearance test. An x-ray study showed irregular mucosa in the distal segment of the ileum. Protein loss has subsided after ileocecal resection. Laparotomy and radiological examinations failed to(More)
To examine whether Long-Evans Cinnamon (LEC) rats, a mutant rat model of Wilson's disease, have a susceptibility gene(s) to hepatocarcinogenesis in addition to the causative gene, Atp7b, we established a new congenic strain, WKAH.C-Atp7b rats, in which the Atp7b gene of the LEC rats is inserted into the normal Wistar-King Aptekman Hokkaido (WKAH)(More)
Earthworms are important soil macrofauna inhabiting almost all ecosystems. Their biomass is large and their burrowing and ingestion of soils alters soil physicochemical properties. Because of their large biomass, earthworms are regarded as an indicator of "soil heath". However, primarily because the difficulties in quantifying their behavior, the extent of(More)
Patients with diabetes mellitus are at high risk of arteriosclerotic complications. The same is true for those with chronic renal failure (CRF). The present study evaluated clinical factors on the occurrence of peripheral arterial diseases. The severity of peripheral arterial disease was defined as mild (plaque, calcifications) or severe (70% stenosis,(More)
