[1] Ice-associated phytoplankton blooms in the southeastern Bering Sea can critically impact the food web structure, from lower tropic level production to marine fisheries. By coupling pelagic and sea ice algal components, our 1-D ecosystem model successfully reproduced the observed ice-associated blooms in 1997 and 1999 at the NOAA/PMEL mooring M2. The(More)
BACKGROUND Lenke 5C type adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) with a Cobb angle of over 30 degrees has high risk of progression. The need for corrective surgeries for degenerative lumbar scoliosis has been increasing these days and some of those cases are pre-existing type scoliosis. However, it is said to be difficult to differentiate pre-existing type(More)
PURPOSE The medial pivot total knee prosthesis has been designed to reproduce physiological knee kinematics. It has been reported that alumina ceramic femoral components reduce polyethylene wear. Thus, medial pivot total knee prostheses with alumina ceramic femoral components were introduced. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of(More)
In the Southern Ocean, zooplankton research has focused on krill and macro-zooplankton despite the high densities of micro- and meso-zooplankton. We investigated their community structure in relation to different sea ice conditions around Japan’s Syowa Station in Lützow-Holm Bay, in the summers of 2011 and 2012. Zooplankton samples were collected using(More)
INTRODUCTION Single-stage bilateral radical surgery for synchronous bilateral multiple lung cancers (SBMLCs) has strong advantages; however, it is considered highly invasive. We have therefore adopted video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) as a minimally invasive surgical maneuver for bilateral lung resection. Although there have been a few reports(More)
We report here an industrial application of the Product Line Engineering (PLE) for the development of electronic braking systems. The cost of software engineering in automotive control systems is increasing as new functions for safety, comfort, and improved fuel efficiency are integrated into electronic control units. Therefore, Component suppliers for(More)
Objective Patients with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is known to have bone fragility. Osteoporosis may be associated with bone fractures and poor surgical outcome for scoliosis. Current growth hormone (GH) treatment offers a viable and safe means to reduce these risks by improving bone density. The purposes of this study were to investigate bone mineral(More)
Purpose Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients are a high-risk population in adult spinal surgery and there is no general consensus regarding the surgical correction of spinal deformity in these patients. We perform long fusion for PD spinal deformity in our institution and this study is a retrospective assessment of the radiological and clinical outcomes of(More)
The variation of nutrients over decadal timescales south of the polar front in the Southern Ocean is poorly known because of a lack of continuous observational data in this area. We examined data from long-term continuous hydrographic monitoring of 43 years (1965-2008) in the Indian sector of the Southern Ocean, via the resupply of Antarctic stations under(More)
