Prediction of pancreatic fistula by amylase levels of drainage fluid on the first day after pancreatectomy.
BACKGROUND/AIMS We investigated whether it would be useful to monitor amylase levels of drainage fluid after pancreatic surgery for prediction of pancreatic fistula. METHODOLOGY Twenty-six cases inExpand

Allopurinol reduced hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury exacerbated by inhalation of high-concentration oxygen in rats.
Exposure to high-concentration oxygen (O2) increases lipid peroxidation of the cellular membrane, leading to tissue injury which may involve hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. We examined theExpand

Novel NF1 gene mutation in a Japanese patient with neurofibromatosis type 1 and a gastrointestinal stromal tumor
Many mutations of the NF1 gene have been reported in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1); however, there have been no documented NF1 gene mutations in Japanese NF1 patients. In the presentExpand

Prediction of postoperative decompensated liver function by technetium‐99m galactosyl‐human serum albumin liver scintigraphy in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma complicating chronic liver
Background Preoperative technetium‐99m galactosyl‐human serum albumin (Tc‐GSA) liver scintigraphy may predict postoperative decompensated liver function and its value has been investigated inExpand
