A case of pituitary adenoma which had progressed from subclinical pituitary apoplexy to subacute pituitary apoplexy on the occasion of cerebral angiography is reported. A 29-year-old man, complaining of bitemporal hemianopsia, was admitted to our department. Plain skull X-p revealed enlargement and double floor of the sella turcica. No abnormal(More)
In the first part of this investigation, 216 consecutive carotid angiograms from 108 patients were reviewed to analyze variations of the anterior choroidal artery (AChA) for the origin, size, and course of the stem and for the possible identification of the uncal branch, perforating branches, and plexal segment of the AChA. In the second part of our(More)
CT studies of 50 patients with spontaneous subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and 100 randomly selected patients were reviewed with regard to the size of the frontal and temporal horns of the lateral ventricles. The temporal horn was classified into four grades, based on the size of its posterior portion at the level of the midbrain. The horn was clearly(More)
A new embolization agent combining ethanol-estrogen and polyvinyl acetate was evaluated angiographically and histologically in 18 canine renal arterial systems. Peripheral vessels of less than 100 microns diameter were obliterated by thrombus induced by ethanol-estrogen, and larger vessels were obliterated by polyvinyl acetate casts and/or thrombus. This(More)
The acute occlusion of cerebral artery by embolism causes severe cerebral infarction. In cases with poor colateral circulation, cerebral infarction develops more severely. In these cases, quick recanalization of the occluded cerebral artery is necessary to prevent severe hemorrhagic infarction and brain edema. We report a case where interventional(More)
A 28-year-old man with a history of myotonic dystrophy (MyD) is described. His progressively worsening excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) was treated with methylphenidate hydrochloride. Polysomonography (PSG), the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT), middle latency-evoked response, and auditory event-related potentials were used to assess the cause of EDS.(More)
Mono-, di-, tri-, and tetrahydroxy-5 beta-cholestan-26-oic acids were incubated with rat liver homogenate (800 x g supernatant and light mitochondrial fraction) to study substrate specificity in the side-chain cleavage reaction (beta-oxidation) of bile acid biosynthesis. The C27-intermediates (5 beta-cholest-24-en-26-oic acids and 24-hydroxy-5(More)
A case of acromegaly associated with variegated spinal disorders was reported. The spinal disorders were multiple cervical disc herniations, spinal epidural cavernous angioma, multiple ossification of the spinal ligament and lumbar canal stenosis. A 51-year-old woman with acromegaly, complaining of disturbances of delicate hand movement and gate, consulted(More)
A case of Iotrolan encephalopathy is reported. A 66-year-old woman, suffering from subarachnoid hemorrhage, was admitted to our department on January 17th, 1995. After an operation for aneurysmal clipping and ventriculo-peritoneal shunt, she was discharged with no neurological deficiency. CT scan revealed ventricular enlargement and slight periventricular(More)
A case is reported of acute occlusion of the cervical portion of the internal carotid artery, which was recanalized and dilated by steps through rescue percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and deferred PTA. A 53-year-old man, complaining of progressive disturbance of consciousness and hemiplegia, was admitted to our department at about 7 hours after(More)
