PURPOSE Despite producing pain, angiolipoma is sometimes misdiagnosed as an ordinary small lipoma, which is usually not associated with pain. Few reports have described magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings of angiolipoma. The aim of the present study was to clarify the MR imaging features of angiolipoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS The MR imaging findings(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of assessing motor evoked potentials (MEP) in lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Twenty-three LSS patients were enrolled. The preoperative data of MEP latency (MEPLT), clinical symptoms, Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) scores for low back pain, visual analogue scale (VAS) for back pain,(More)
OBJECT The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of assessing lumbar somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) in central lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). METHODS The latencies of lumbar SSEPs were recorded in 40 patients with central LSS, including 16 men and 24 women. The mean age of the patients was 67.3 +/- 7.4 years. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to see if curved baselines of F-waves could be mathematically approximated with universal spreadsheet software. METHODS The subjects were 3 healthy persons and 3 patients with cervical myelopathy. Supramaximal electrical stimuli were applied 200 times to the median nerve at the wrist. Compound muscle action potentials(More)
Although the complexation of carborane derivatives with beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) is well-known, we present here the first observation of the complexation of carborane derivatives with alpha-CD in aqueous solution. The stoichiometry and association constant (K(a)) of the complexes were estimated from Job's plots and NMR titration studies, respectively.(More)
