Rectovestibular (or anovestibular) fistula is the most common form of anorectal anomaly in female infants. In the surgical repair of these malformations, anal transplantation has been in widespread conventional use. Based on the idea of posterior sagittal anorectoplasty, we devised a new approach, anterior sagittal anorectoplasty, in which, in the lithotomy(More)
Forty-five patients (19 boys and 26 girls) with lymphangioma have been treated at Osaka University Hospital during the 10-year period from January 1978 to December 1987. Twenty-nine underwent initial bleomycin (BLM) therapy. These patients' lesions consisted of large cystic masses that were demonstrated by echography or computed tomography scans. BLM was(More)
To examine associated anatomic anomalies of the tracheobronchial tree and structural abnormalities of the trachea, and their clinical consequences, bronchoscopic examination and follow-up studies were performed in 32 patients with esophageal atresia (EA) and tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) over a 5-year period. To evaluate structural abnormalities of(More)
For evaluation of lung hypoplasia in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), we measured lung-thorax transverse area ratio (LT ratio), which was defined as the area of bilateral lung profiles divided by the profile area of thorax at the level of the four-chamber view of the heart, using fetal ultrasonography. LT ratio in cases with CDH was lower than that in(More)
BACKGROUND Although it has been reported that total parenteral nutrition induces an increased intestinal permeability and a decreased mucous gel layer covering the intestinal epithelium, the role of mucous gel on intestinal permeability has not been well understood. We examined the in vivo effects of N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) as mucolytic agent and colchicine(More)
Congenital dilatation of the bile duct (CDBD) or choledochal cyst has been demonstrated to be associated with an anomalous junction of the pancreaticobiliary ductal system. Multifarious clinical signs and symptoms of CDBD have been shown to be closely related with the presence of this anomalous junction. In the present study, 100 instances of CDBD treated(More)
PURPOSE As locoregional control of head and neck cancer has improved, distant metastases have become increasingly common problems. PATIENTS AND METHODS To determine the role of surgical treatment, we reviewed 32 patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck who underwent thoracotomy for pulmonary metastases. RESULTS The overall 5-year(More)
Among 753 autopsy prostatic cancer cases with a metastasis, 476 (63%) had a lymph node metastasis, whereas 277 (37%) did not. Two different lymph node metastatic patterns were observed: Type 1, combined metastasis involving the pelvic and paraaortic lymph nodes; and Type 2, metastasis to the paraaortic lymph nodes, but not to the pelvic lymph nodes. Type 1(More)
