The incidences of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) will probably increase with the aging of the population; thus, postoperative care of elderly CSDH patients may play a more important role in surgical management. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of and adverse effects after postoperative early mobilization (EM) for elderly CSDH patients.(More)
Acute deprivation of unilateral sensory input rapidly enhances contralateral hand motor function, but the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. We herein used functional MRI to evaluate, in 14 healthy individuals, motor cortical activation for right finger motion before, during, and after sensory deprivation of left forearm induced by reversible,(More)
Pathological observations were carried out on 100 male rats of Sprague-Dawley strain obtained from 5 outbreaks of sialodacryoadenitis (SDA). In accordance with clinical and macroscopic findings, principal microscopic changes were found in the salivary (submaxillary and parotid) and Harderian glands. Lesions observed in these different glands were(More)
Plutella xylostella (PX) that were 130000-fold more resistant to Cry1Ac were selected from the susceptible strain and maintained in the laboratory. The LC50 of the susceptible strain (PXS) was 0.38 microg toxin/g diet, whereas that of the resistant strain (PXR) was 4800 microg toxin/g diet. Brush border membrane vesicles (BBMV) were prepared from both PXS(More)
Systemic histopathological examinations were carried out on rats with CCl4-induced hepatic cirrhosis. Moderate congestion in the spleen, prominent oedema in the focal acinar cell degeneration in the pancreas, marked haemorrhage and phagocytosis of haemosiderin by macrophages in the pancreaticoduodenal lymph node, appearance of monocytes bearing(More)
A 75-year-old man with no history of head trauma presented with a 10-day episode of left forehead heaviness followed by sudden headache and vomiting. Neurologic examinations were unremarkable. Neuroimaging showed left frontal extra-axial lesion suggestive of acute and subacute subdural hematoma (figure 1, A–D). CSF analysis revealed normal cytology and the(More)
The purpose of this study is to determine the factors associated with posttraumatic seizure in patients under 2 years old with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). Twenty-one patients under 2 years old (15 males and six females) with ASDH, who were admitted to our hospital between January 2002 and September 2008, were studied retrospectively. Clinical findings(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with cerebral infarction, identifying the distribution of infarction and the relevant artery is essential for ascertaining the underlying vascular pathophysiological mechanisms and preventing subsequent stroke. However, visualization of the basal perforating arteries (BPAs) has had limited success, and simultaneous viewing of(More)
BACKGROUND Aquaporin (AQP) water channels play a significant role in mesenchymal microvascular proliferation and infiltrative growth. AQPs are highly expressed in malignant astrocytomas, and a positive correlation is observed between their expression levels and histological tumor grade. OBJECTIVE To examine the utility of aquaporin positron emission(More)
