No nocturnal increase of prolactin (Prl) secretion during sleep has reportedly been discernible in most cases of hyperprolactinaemic patients with pituitary tumour. However, subjects previously evaluated, were in the majority, patients with large pituitary tumour. In the present study, 24 h secretory pattern of Prl was evaluated in 4 hyperprolactinaemic(More)
To obtain insight into the role of endogenous dopamine (DA) on the adenohypophyseal hormones release in amenorrhoeic women, responses of the adenohypophyseal hormones to a DA antagonist, metoclopramide (MCP), were evaluated in 4 normal women, in 9 normoprolactinaemic-amenorrhoeic patients, and in 7 hyperprolactinaemic-amenorrhoeic patients. The(More)
An immunoradiometric assay for an ovarian tumor associated antigen (CA 125) has recently been developed. The CA 125 assay was reported to be fairly sensitive for ovarian cancer. However, elevated CA 125 levels were reportedly observed in 1% of healthy controls, 6% of patients with miscellaneous diseases and 29% of patients with non-gynecological cancer.(More)
Bone mineral density (BMD) of the spine and proximal femur in Japanese men and women was investigated with dual photon absorptiometry, using gadolinium-153. Peak bone mass of the spine (L2-4) was 1.20 g/cm2 in women which was lower than that of men by 4.7%, whereas BMD of the femoral neck was 0.91 g/cm2 in women and lower than in men by 13.3%. Bone loss was(More)
A man suffering from severe intermittent claudication of the right calf and foot was successfully treated by femoro-tibio-peroneal trunk autogenous vein bypass with adjunctive arteriovenous fistula. Prior to operation, he was unable to walk more than 50 meters without resting. Preoperative arteriography revealed extensive occlusion of the popliteotibial(More)
One hundred and thirty-six patients (June 1979, through May 1984) underwent mitral, aortic or double valve replacement and apico-aortic bypass with the St. Jude Medical (SJM) prosthesis, at Ryukyu University Hospital, Okinawa. Operative mortality for the entire group was 4.4 per cent. Late mortality from 1979-1984 was 6.1 per cent. There were no deaths(More)
To assess the capacity of the corpus luteum to secrete steroid hormones and relaxin during spontaneous abortion, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), progesterone, 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) and relaxin concentrations were determined in serum samples obtained from 16 spontaneously aborting first-trimester patients and 5 asymptomatic, apparently(More)
