The distribution of blood vessels in the intraorbital part of the human optic nerve was examined after injecting silicone rubber into the ophthalmic artery of eyes obtained after autopsy. Particular attention was focused on the possible existence of an end artery which might play an important role in ischemic optic neuropathy. In the anterior part of the(More)
Emphysematous cystitis is a rare condition characterized by air formation in and around the bladder wall by gas-forming organisms. Although diabetes mellitus and chronic urinary infection, which are frequently encountered in patients with endstage renal disease (ESRD), are predisposing factors for this entity, emphysematous cystitis is actually not common(More)
In isolated rat pancreatic acini, protein expression of RhoA and Rho-associated kinase, ROCK-II, and the formation of immunocomplex of RhoA with ROCK-II were enhanced by CCK-8, carbachol, and the phorbol ester TPA. The ROCK-specific inhibitor, Y-27632, did not alter basal amylase secretion, whereas it potentiated CCK-stimulated pancreatic enzyme secretion(More)
The angioarchitecture of the monkey intracanalicular optic nerve was examined, after injecting silicone rubber into the ophthalmic artery. Particular attention was focused on the possible existence of the end artery which might play an important role in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy or indirect injury to the intracanalicullar part of the optic nerve.(More)
