OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the changes of joint effusion (JE) on the MRI and arthroscopically observed pathology after visually guided TMJ irrigation (VGIR) in patients with chronic closed lock. The correlation of these findings to the clinical outcome was also studied. STUDY DESIGN Forty patients with unilateral chronic closed lock who(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate usefulness of mandibular reconstructions using a custom-made titanium mesh (Ti-mesh) tray and particulate cancellous bone and marrow (PCBM). A consecutive nine patients who underwent mandibular reconstruction were enrolled in this study. They were five men and four women (mean age: 53.9 years). Virtual reality(More)
It is difficult to predict the efficacy of deferasirox (DFX) as its pharmacokinetics varies among patients. The area under the curve (AUC) is reportedly useful for determining adequate DFX dosage; however, serum concentration measurements are often challenging. Effective DFX dosage is thus defined by assessing the efficacy of this agent in clinical(More)
It is difficult to distinguish desmoplastic malignant mesothelioma (DMM) from fibrous pleuritis (FP). We investigated the utility of immunohistochemistry as a way of differentiating between DMM and FP. We examined 11 DMMs and 46 FPs with the aid of antibodies against 18 cytokeratin (CK) subtypes, calponin, caldesmon, desmin, and GLUT-1. The best sensitivity(More)
We report a two-stage orthognathic operation for a 16-year-old boy with a repaired isolated cleft palate. He had a severe class III malocclusion with an overjet of 20.4 mm. In the first stage, we did an anterior subapical segmental osteotomy with symphyseal ostectomy to reposition the mandibular anterior segment posteriorly and to reduce the transverse(More)
Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT). Majority of the current immunosuppressive strategies targeting donor T cells to prevent or treat acute GVHD are only partially effective, and often require escalated immunosuppressive therapy. Recent studies have(More)
BACKGROUND Composition of atherosclerotic arterial walls is rich in lipids such as cholesterol, unlike normal arterial walls. In this study, we aimed to utilize this difference to diagnose atherosclerosis via multispectral fluorescence imaging, which allows for identification of fluorescence originating from the substance in the arterial wall. METHODS The(More)
Sudden blast phase (SBP) is a rare event in which patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) rapidly progress to the blast phase. Few patients on second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (2nd TKIs) have been reported to develop SBP. Here, we report a 45-year-old man diagnosed with CML in the chronic phase in(More)
