A 92-year-old woman with a brain tumor developed swelling of the left lower extremity. Venography showed considerable thrombi from the left common iliac vein to the femoral vein. Following implantation of a temporary inferior vena cava filter, catheter aspiration therapy and catheter-directed thrombolysis were performed. Venography after 3 days showed(More)
An 84-year-old woman was admitted with anorexia and because the serum cardiac markers, electrocardiogram and echocardiography suggested acute myocardial infarction she underwent emergency cardiac catheterization. Coronary angiography revealed no significant coronary artery stenosis, but left ventriculography revealed akinesis of the left ventricular apex(More)
Somatostatin, a peptide distributed widely throughout the gut, inhibits a variety of gastrointestinal functions. We previously reported that fasting for 48 h increased gastric somatostatin peptide and mRNA content. Thus, somatostatin could contribute to the inhibition of gastric G cells during fasting. To investigate the effect of fasting on intestinal(More)
An 86-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of vomiting and anorexia. Although serum cardiac markers, an electrocardiogram, and echocardiography suggested acute myocardial infarction, emergency cardiac catheterization revealed akinesis of the left ventricular apex without significant coronary artery stenosis. She was diagnosed as having(More)
BACKGROUND N-nitroso compounds are carcinogens formed from nitrite, a process that is inhibited by vitamin C in gastric juice. Helicobacter pylori infection has been reported to increase nitrite and decrease vitamin C in gastric juice. Therefore, susceptibility to gastric cancer in H. pylori-infected patients may be derived from increased N-nitroso(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori infection causes chronic gastritis and results in increased serum concentrations of pepsinogens I and II as well as gastrin, while the ratio of pepsinogen I to II (I : II) is decreased. Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is induced in H. pylori-associated gastritis and may modulate inflammation. However serum nitrate and(More)
