In order to obtain information regarding the number of pre- and postganglionic fibers that are firing, we measured cardiac sympathetic nerve activity (CSNA) before and after the successive sectioning of T1-T5 thoracic rami in anesthetized cats. Total activity from the area was measured under the mean CSNA curve. Peak amplitude, width and periodicity of the(More)
Partial nephrectomy is now the gold standard treatment for small renal tumors. Local recurrence is a major problem after partial nephrectomy, and local recurrence in the remnant kidney after partial nephrectomy is common. A 77-year-old man underwent right partial nephrectomy for a T1 right renal cell carcinoma. Microscopic examination revealed a clear cell(More)
