The present investigator has studied the following anatomic variations and degenerative changes of the articular cartilage of the ulnar side of the midcarpal joint: the perforation of the triangular fibrocartilage (TFC), and the ruptures of the scapholunate and lunotriquetral interosseous ligaments (S-L lig., L-T lig.). The materials were 127 wrist joints(More)

Accordingly, some researchers agree that TRI and cauda equina syndrome are induced by a different mechanism, while others believe that cauda equina syndrome is a neurological symptom, but TRI is a muscular disorder [6,7].(More)
We experienced anesthetic management for an operation to remove a hemorrhagic gastric submucosal tumor in a patient who had undergone left ventricular volume reduction (the Batista procedure) for dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) 2 years previously. Preoperative evaluations indicated the relapse of severe DCM. Intravenous and epidural anesthesia was employed(More)
A 76-year-old woman was scheduled to undergo a laser resection of the tracheal tumor which severely obstructed the upper airway. She had a past history of thoracic aortic aneurysm resection and myocardial infarction. After spraying the patient's oral cavity with 8% lidocaine, a laryngeal mask airway was inserted under spontaneous respiration. Tumor(More)
A 34-year-old obese, small-jawed and short-necked woman, had severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) with bronchial asthma. A surgical removal of a lingual tumor using a laser knife was scheduled under general anesthesia with sevoflurane. A small diameter tracheal tube for laser surgery (internal diameter (ID) of 5.5 mm) was used. The tube was(More)
