This study investigated the effects of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on global and regional left ventricular diastolic function, as assessed by strain rate (SR) imaging. In 27 patients with coronary artery disease, we performed echocardiography before and after PCI to obtain segmental peak systolic SR and peak early diastolic SR (E(SR)). PCI did(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between regional and global left ventricular function has not been evaluated. The present study aimed to assess whether regional myocardial contraction and relaxation reflect global left ventricular systolic and early diastolic function, respectively. METHODS AND RESULTS The study involved 45 patients with coronary artery(More)
Human motion recognition systems play an important role in improving the ability of robots to support human life. This paper proposes a novel motion recognition method based on haptic data (i.e., position and force information). First, haptic data are obtained using a bilateral control system. Second, the haptic data are divided into action components,(More)
In this paper, a novel structured planar direct drive motor for use in industrial equipment is proposed. The characteristics are its flat structure compared to conventional 2 Degrees Of Freedom (DOFs) motors and realization of 2 DOFs motion within one device. The structure of the planar motor consists of two sets of coils placed perpendicularly and a(More)
A 65-year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of dyspnea. Laboratory examinations revealed hypereosinophilia at a local hospital. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed normal left ventricular dimension and function. The left ventricular apex was obliterated and the posterior and lateral walls were thickened by an abnormal(More)
We developed mixed cell sheets consisting of fibroblasts and peripheral blood mononuclear cells that had high potency for secreting vascular endothelial growth factor. The purpose of this study was to confirm the therapeutic effects of mixed sheets in rabbits suffering from ulcers at the ischemic hind limbs. We used the ulcer model, which was constructed by(More)
Purpose: To clarify the risk factors for venous stasis-related skin lesions in the legs in patients without major abnormalities on duplex ultrasonography (DUS). Methods: Fifty patients (nine males and 41 females, age 27-93 years) with symptoms of C4 or greater according to the Clinical, Etiological, Anatomical, Pathological (CEAP) classification, but having(More)
