In a group of 39 patients with ischemic heart and valvular disease (January 1997 to May 1998), three platelet collection methods were compared in terms of safety and effectiveness. The methods were: (i) collection of autologous platelets over several weeks and freezing them for storage until surgery (frozen group, 12 patients); (ii) collection of autologous(More)
Postoperative complications after cardiac surgery are mainly caused by the detrimental effects of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on hemodynamics and humoral factors. We studied the effects of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) infusion on CPB induced organ failure. Twenty-four patients who underwent coronary bypass surgery with normal preoperative cardiac and renal(More)
The patient was a 75 year-old male who was admitted with recurrent chest pain during hemodialysis one year after PTCA to the right coronary artery and left circumflex branch (LCX). He had the history of cerebral infarction and chronic renal insufficiency. Coronary angiography showed severe stenosis from the left main trunk to left anterior descending artery(More)
This report describes the pathological characterizations of a rare case of necrosis of the femoral head that was spontaneous, bilateral, avascular and nontraumatic. A 14-month-old beagle dog was presented with pain in the hind limbs. At necropsy, the articular surface in the bilateral femoral head was markedly irregular. There were no gross abnormalities(More)
A 70-year-old man was admitted with syncope attack on exertion. Ventricular septal defect with pulmonary hypertension and left atrial myxoma were confirmed by ultrasonography and cardiac catheterization. Preoperative Pp/Ps was 0.95 and pulmonary vascular resistance was 16 units. Pulmonary vascular resistance decreased to 9.6 units by the administration of(More)
Congenital vitelline duct anomalies other than Meckel's diverticulum are rare in animals. A cyst of approximately 8 mm in diameter was observed on the antimesenteric surface of the ileal serosa in a 10-week-old female Crl:CD(SD) rat. Microscopically, the cyst closely resembled the ileum, but it did not communicate with the ileal lumen. We diagnosed this(More)
Air purifiers, which release positive and negative ions generated by electric discharge, are widely used in a variety of places. In this study, male and female SD rats [Crl:CD(SD)] were exposed by whole-body inhalation (6 hr/day) to ionized air containing positive and negative ions for at least 10 weeks before mating and throughout the mating, gestation,(More)
We reevaluated histological slides of dorsal skin in control animals from past percutaneous dose toxicity studies using dogs, rabbits and rats to provide background data concerning histological changes related to preparation and application procedures and vehicles or embrocations of every variety. Acanthosis, dermal or perifollicular inflammatory cell(More)
A 7-year-old female boxer dog died suddenly without any clinical signs. It was suspected that the dog had arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) due to ventricular premature complexes and ventricular tachycardia at 3 years of age. The final diagnosis of ARVC was confirmed by histological characteristics, such as loss of cardiocytes and(More)
