A 55-year-old man had rhabdomyolysis and myocardial damage induced by palytoxin. Weakness and myalgia of four extremities occurred five hours after eating a fish. Rhabdomyolysis developed and the serum creatine phosphokinase (CK) was elevated to 40,000 IU/l on the 3rd day. Gastric lavage with activated charcoal and forced mannitol-alkaline diuresis therapy(More)
Reconstruction of the mobile tongue needs soft and thin tissue not to disturb tongue movement, and therefore a free forearm flap has usually been used for this kind of reconstruction. However, it entails a cosmetic problem, especially for young people. We have detained good results with tongue reconstructions using free dorsalis pedis flaps. The donor site(More)
BACKGROUND Limited information is available as to whether there is a difference in the association of lipid and fibrinolytic variables with coronary artery disease according to the presence or absence of elevated serum total cholesterol. We examined the levels of various lipid and fibrinolytic variables including remnant-like particle cholesterol (RLP-C).(More)
OBJECTIVE We designed the present study to evaluate the association of various lipid and fibrinolytic components with coronary artery stenosis with respect to the triglyceride (TG) level. METHODS Levels of TG, remnant-like particle cholesterol (RLP-C), total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(More)
BACKGROUND There is as yet no definite consensus on the predictive value of the various lipid profiles and fibrinolytic parameters that became available in clinical use recently for coronary artery disease. METHODS Levels of lipoprotein(a), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), remnant-like particles cholesterol (RLP-C), tissue plasminogen(More)
A patient with clinical features consistent with pulmonary embolism showed no improvement despite therapy with tissue-plasminogen activator and full-dose heparin. Transvenous catheter suction biopsy was successful in establishing an antemortem histologic diagnosis of primary pulmonary artery leiomyosarcoma. Urgent surgical intervention was performed.
Laparoscopic findings in a 32-year-old woman presenting with Alagille syndrome are reported. The liver surface showed a segmental whitish discoloration on the surface of both lobes with a transverse sulcus which was not stained enough after an intravenous injection of indocyanine green (ICG). These findings suggested an acquired bile duct injury in addition(More)
Case 1 had undergone surgery for antrum stenosis 20 years earlier as well as subsequent surgery with reconstruction by Billroth II for carcinoma occurring at the anastmotic site. Case 2 had undergone partial resection of the jejunum for injury of the intestine. Case 3 had undergone reconstruction of the thoracic esophagus using the stomach following(More)
Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is defined as a coronary artery dilatation with a diameter ≥1.5 times greater than that of a normal adjacent artery. All 3 coronary vessels can be affected by CAE, but the incidence of multivessel CAE among patients undergoing coronary angiography is quite low. We herein report an extremely rare case of acute myocardial(More)
There are only a few studies of the relationship between hemostatic abnormalities and intraarterial pressure, so the present study investigated the association of various newer lipid and hemostatic variables with intraarterial pressure levels. Levels of total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol,(More)
