We studied postoperative status of 14 patients with myasthenia gravis of ocular type who underwent extended thymectomy. Nine patients were in remission, three improved, and two unchanged. No patient became worse and died. The remission rates at one, three, five, and ten years after operation were 50.0%, 58.3%, 60.0%, and 80.0%. The palliation rates at one,(More)
In organ transplantation nitric oxide has been reported to be involved in allograft rejection. We examined in a rat lung transplantation model whether nitric oxide is overproduced in acute rejection and can be detected in exhaled air. Thirteen rat right lung transplants were separated into three groups: group 1 (n = 5), untreated allografts (Brown-Norway(More)
Sixty-nine patients with hepatocellular carcinoma underwent curative hepatic resections as primary cases from 1981 to 1986. Seven patients died in the hospital after operation. The other 62 patients left the hospital and were closely followed for 25 to 78 months. Recurrence of carcinoma became obvious in 41 (66%) of 62 patients. The clinical and pathologic(More)
Ninety-eight hepatic resections for hepatocellular carcinoma were performed on 94 patients from 1963-1985. HBs antigen was positive in 17% of patients, preoperative serum alpha-fetoprotein was more than 20 ng/mL in 70% of patients, and liver cirrhosis was present in 75% of patients. Hospital mortality rate was 19%, and the volume of operative blood loss was(More)
A cuff technique is introduced to anastomose pulmonary vein and pulmonary artery in rat lung transplantation. In 11 consecutive cases, the average graft ischemic time was 13.5 +/- 2.0 minutes and operating time 100.7 +/- 4.8 minutes: The time for ischemia was less than one third of previous reports and the time for operation one half of previous reports.(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of unilateral diaphragm plication for phrenic nerve paralysis on the respiratory mechanics and diaphragm function. Study 1: We performed thoracotomy (BASELINE), left phrenicotomy (INJURY) and left diaphragm plication (PLICATION) in ten dogs. After chest was closed in each condition, measured were the tidal(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe the postoperative respiratory failure due to the phrenic nerve injury in the setting of concomitant cardiac and pulmonary operation. EXPERIMENTAL STUDY Prospective study. SETTING Department of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery Osaka University Medical School. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTIONS From January 1984 to December 1993, 5 patients(More)
Chronic empyema, a sequelae of pulmonary tuberculosis, is now a only tuberculosis-related disease which was remained to be treated surgically. The candidates who have basically poor respiratory function are now attained advanced age. Over a 15 years period (1980-95), 22 patients 70 years of age or older underwent surgical intervention for chronic empyema at(More)
Laminin-related peptide poly(ethylene glycol) hybrid, Tyr-Ile-Gly-Ser-Arg-aminopoly(ethylene glycol) was prepared by the solution method and carboxylated poly(ethylene glycol)-Tyr-Ile-Gly-Ser-Arg was prepared by the solid phase method. Their inhibitory effects on experimental tumor metastasis were examined in mice. The inhibitory effect of(More)
