Properties and potential applications of carbon nanotubes are summarized by emphasizing the aspects of nanoelectronics and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). The main technologies for the assembly of nanodevices through nanomanipulations with scanning probe microscopes and nanorobotic manipulators are overviewed, focusing on that of nanotubes. Key(More)
Clear cell sarcoma (CCS) of soft tissue is a rare sarcoma with morphologic similarities to malignant melanoma but a distinct genetic background including a chromosomal translocation, t(12;22)(q13;q12), or a resultant EWSR1-ATF1 fusion gene. In addition, the tumors occurring in the gastrointestinal tract may have a variant fusion gene EWSR1-CREB1. This study(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to discuss the incidence, predisposing factors, and clinical course of intrahepatic biloma after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization for hepatic tumors including hepatocellular carcinoma and metastatic liver tumor. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine hundred seventy-two patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (n = 920) or(More)
Edoxaban, an oral, direct factor Xa inhibitor, has a similar or low incidence of bleeding events compared with other anticoagulants in clinical trials. Therefore, agents to reverse the anticoagulant effects of edoxaban could be desirable in emergency situations. In this study, the reversal effects of haemostatic agents were determined on prothrombin time(More)
We have been developing exoskeletal robots in order to assist the motion of physically weak persons such as elderly persons or handicapped persons. In our previous research, a prototype of a two degree of freedom exoskeletal robots for shoulder joint motion assist have been developed since the shoulder motion is especially important for people to take care(More)
