The patient had a history of aortic valve replacement for aortic valve stenosis (AS). Although one major criterion and two minor criteria from the Duke criteria were met and therefore(More)

Early gastric cancer was diagnosed by gastrointestinal endoscopy and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) was performed. Fever and abdominal pain thereafter developed, and a severe inflammatory response was observed on a blood test. Contrast computed tomography (CT) showed(More)
In the present study, we examined the risk factors and causes for removal of the peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter in patients on continuous ambulatory PD (CAPD). Data were collected from the records of patients who received CAPD therapy from 1995 to 2007 in the Department of Nephrology, Saitama Medical University. During that time, 473 patients were(More)
A broad consensus has not been reached on the appropriate timing for cessation of peritoneal dialysis (PD). Decreasing urine volume, repeated and refractory peritonitis, and deterioration of the peritoneal membrane are major reasons to stop PD. Also, the link between length of time on PD and encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) should be an additional(More)
