Intraoperative detection of embedded coronary arteries in MIDCAB using a color Doppler microprobe.
TLDR
Five embedded left anterior descending coronary arteries were successfully identified by intraoperative ultrasonography and it is believed that the color Doppler microprobe is helpful for surgeons in this difficult situation. Expand
Pure red cell aplasia and myasthenia gravis with thymoma: a case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
Although the patient received no treatment for MG and PRCA after surgery, her hematological test results rapidly improved and she was discharged from the hospital on the 29th postoperative day, for a patient to remain in remission without treatment for PRCA and MG after thymothymectomy is extremely rare. Expand
A histological study of surgical landmarks for the specialized atrioventricular conduction system, with particular reference to the papillary muscle.
TLDR
Surgical landmarks of the conduction system were histologically evaluated and improved clinical results have demonstrated that such information offers a gross but practical guide for prevention of conduction disturbances. Expand
A subclavian artery aneurysm associated with aortitis syndrome.
TLDR
The exclusion technique is recommended to treat subclavian artery aneurysms in cases in which aneurYSmectomy is likely to injure adjacent veins and nerves. Expand
Complement activation in cardiopulmonary bypass, with special reference to anaphylatoxin production in membrane and bubble oxygenators.
TLDR
In vitro studies revealed that human immunoglobulin fractions denatured by oxygen bubbling produced C4a, C3a, and C5a in a dose-dependent manner, although human albumin treated identically as human immunglobulin did not produce these complements. Expand
Assessment of internal thoracic artery graft with intraoperative color Doppler ultrasonography.
TLDR
Intraoperative ultrasonography using the microprobe provides adequate anatomic and hemodynamic information regarding ITA grafts, and it is suggested that intraoperative Ultrasonography is useful for the assessment of these grafts. Expand
Functional recovery after coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction and preserved myocardial viability in the left anterior descending arterial territory as
TLDR
It is indicated that myocardial viability in the LAD territory, as demonstrated by thallium-201 SPECT perfusion imaging, predicts a significant improvement in functional class and LVEF of at least 10% or more after coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with severe LV dysfunction. Expand
Electrophysiologic study of dysrhythmias after atrial operations in dogs.
TLDR
Division of the anterior INP is a potent anatomic substrate in producing junctional rhythm, and hypoxia involving the sinoatrial node reacts as its synergic factor and the "summation theory" is supported. Expand
Double lung cancer combined with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. A case report.
TLDR
A 68-year-old woman admitted because of two abnormal lung shadows, which later proved to be differentiated double cancer, finds a relationship between lung cancer and ITP. Expand
[A case report of surgical treatment for left ventricular papillary fibroelastoma].
TLDR
This case is the 10th surgical case in the Japanese literatures for left ventricular papillary fibroelastoma, and an incision was made in the ascending aorta and the tumor was successfully removed through the aortic valve. Expand
