Excess of cancer in patients receiving renal transplantation is well-known in Western countries, but information in Japan remains limited. Our study examined whether excess risk is found in patients receiving renal transplantation in Japan. Between 1970 and 1995, 1155 males and 589 females underwent renal transplantation in 6 hospitals, and a total of(More)
From 1976 to 1985, transtrochanteric rotational osteotomy was applied to 58 hips of nontraumatic necrosis of the femoral head. Of these, 52 hips were available for the present study. The follow-up periods ranged from one to ten years (average, 5.1 years). Satisfactory results were obtained in 69%, as there was no evidence of progressive collapse of the(More)
A 34-year-old man presented with angiosarcoma which developed at the site of a preexisting bone infarct in the metaphysis of the right tibia. A malignant bone tumor may develop at the site of bone infarct, and its histologic type is most frequently malignant fibrous histiocytoma or fibrosarcoma. Few patients with osteosarcoma have been reported: only 2(More)
BACKGROUND Although inhibition of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) has been reported to aggravate hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury, the role of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) has been still unknown. We investigated the role of NO produced by iNOS, and evaluated the effect of an iNOS inhibitor on prolonged warm I/R injury in the pig(More)
Exposure to foreign particles sometimes causes inflammatory reactions through production of cytokines and chemoattractants by phagocytic cells. In this study, we focused on macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) to evaluate its pathophysiological role in the phagocytic process. Immunohistochemical analysis of human pseudosynovial tissues retrieved at(More)
In a series of 100 modified Chiari pelvic osteotomies in ninety-six patients, who were followed for an average of nine years and three months (range, six years to fourteen years and eight months), an excellent or good clinical result was obtained in seventy-eight hips. The level of the osteotomy line on postoperative radiographs was compared with the(More)
Preoperative water cystometrograms in 437 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were examined in a retrospective study. The cystometrographic results were analyzed regarding the preoperative clinical features: patient age, presence or absence of urinary incontinence, history of urinary retention and rate of residual urine. The prognostic value in(More)
This study evaluated clinical and radiographic results of bipolar hemiarthroplasties for the treatment of osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Forty-eight hips in 35 patients with a mean age of 37 years who underwent primary bipolar hemiarthroplasties were observed for an average of 11.4 years. Osteonecrosis was associated with corticosteroid use (21(More)
We have previously described the mid- to long-term results of conventional simple varus intertrochanteric osteotomy for osteonecrosis of the femoral head, showing that 19 of the 26 hips had good or excellent results. We extended the follow-up to a mean of 18.1 years (10.5 to 26) including a total of 34 hips in 28 patients, with a mean age at surgery of 33(More)
