[Purpose] To clarify rotator cuff muscular activity in the raised position of the closed kinetic chain (CKC) exercise. [Subjects] Twenty-nine cases were studied, 19 men and 10 women (average age 21.5 ±4.7 years old, average body weight 60.1 kg ±11.4). [Methods] To determine the effects of the closed kinetic chain exercise on the upper limb, we measured the… (More)
Harmful animal controls on spotted seals on Rebun Island have been conducted each spring since 2010 due to an increase in the number of seals and damage to local fisheries. To evaluate the influences of controls on seals, we used the numbers of haul-out sites and hauled-out seals, and photo-identification to study differences in the usage patterns of… (More)

After preparing threparing the frontal section including the origin of the left portal trunk at the hepatic hilum, 60 human livers (35, entirely; 25, partly) were dissected to reveal segmental configuration and the supplying portal vein branches. We usually observed two combinations of segments, i.e., S2, 4, 5 and 8 or S2, 3, 4, 5 and 8, in the frontal… (More)
After preparing the frontal section including the origin of the left portal trunk at the hilar region, the left anatomical lobes of 111 human livers were dissected to reveal the segmental configuration based on the supplying portal vein branches. S2 was consistently located dorsal to S3. However, in contrast to the description in common textbooks for… (More)
