Torsion of an accessory spleen presenting as an acute abdomen with an inflammatory mass
TLDR
A 10-year-old boy with severe abdominal pain and a mass that was found to be due to infarction of an accessory spleen that had twisted on its pedicle is described. Expand
Two cases of prenatally diagnosed congenital lobar emphysema caused by lobar bronchial atresia.
TLDR
Three-dimensional computed tomography bronchoscopy was effective to demonstrate accurate anatomical changes of the bronchus and 2 cases of prenatally diagnosed congenital lobar emphysema caused by bronchial atresia at the left upper lobar Bronchus are reported. Expand
A new hepatic portoenterostomy with division of the ligamentum venosum for treatment of biliary atresia: a preliminary report.
TLDR
A new hepatic portoenterostomy is described to transect the fibrous cord under an appropriate visual field by division of the ligamentum venosum (Arantius' canal) and the portal vein becomes fully mobile after dividing the ligamentsum venusum, and the porta hepatis can be widely exposed. Expand
Living donor liver transplantation for congenital absence of the portal vein in a child with cardiac failure.
TLDR
This is the first case of successful liver transplantation for CAPV with cardiac failure and a 19-month-old female infant with CAPV, who had portosystemic encephalopathy and cardiac failure, and underwent living donor liver transplation with a partial clamp technique using a vein graft is reported.

Attenuated nitrergic inhibitory neurotransmission to interstitial cells of Cajal in the lower esophageal sphincter with esophageal achalasia in children
TLDR
The aim of this investigation is to clarify the status of ICC and nitrergic inhibitory neurons in the LES of EA using immunohistochemistry. Expand
Manometric evaluation of gastrointestinal motility in children with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome.
TLDR
Investigation of gastrointestinal motility in children with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction syndrome found the gastrointestinal MMC was found to be abnormal with CIIPS, whereas it remained normal with idiopathic constipation and Hirschsprung's disease. Expand
Protein plugs cause symptoms in patients with choledochal cysts.
TLDR
The simultaneous occurrence of symptoms and signs may be explained by disturbances in bile and pancreatic secretory flow caused by a protein plug in the common channel. Expand
Complete excision of the intrapancreatic portion of choledochal cysts.
TLDR
The operative technique is safe and effective for the complete excision of the intrapancreatic portion of a choledochal cyst with significantly decreased blood loss when the technique was used compared to intramural excision. Expand
Embryogenesis of pancreaticobiliary maljunction inferred from development of duodenal atresia.
TLDR
The embryogenesis of pancreaticobiliary maljunction is inferred from the embryogenic of duodenal atresia, and the site in the bile duct where a branch of the pancreatic duct joins is likely to develop atresian due to disturbance of the recanalization process. Expand
Experimental study on the hemodynamic effects of veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation with an automatically driven blood pump on puppies.
TLDR
The authors concluded that VA-ECMO flow should be kept as low as possible, in view of undesirable hemodynamic effects on both ventricles, while performing veno-arterial extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation on 16 puppies. Expand
