Expanding hematoma of the abdominal wall is a rare example of acute abdominal disease. We report two cases of lateral abdominal wall hematoma caused by the rupture of a deep circumflex iliac artery, which is a rare cause of an abdominal wall hematoma. Both patients experienced severe abdominal pain after sneezing or coughing. In both cases, computed(More)
BACKGROUND Adiponectin is an anti-inflammatory cytokine that is specifically and abundantly produced by adipocytes as a secretory protein. A direct interaction between adiponectin and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is not fully understood. To elucidate the effects of adiponectin on LPS, we first investigated interactions between recombinant adiponectin and LPS.(More)
Totally implantable access ports (TIAPs) are generally used in oncology. Few studies have addressed complications associated with the insertion site. A total of 233 consecutive oncology patients were enrolled to receive TIAP inserts via internal jugular vein (IJV) or subclavian vein (SV). Data on clinicopathologic parameters and early/late complications(More)
This study presents a new method that enables the detection of sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) with high sensitivity using indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence imaging. This study enrolled 128 patients with clinically node-negative breast cancer. Fluorescence imaging was obtained after ICG was injected into the areola. Subcutaneous lymphatic channels were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of edaravone, a novel free radical scavenger, on bacterial translocation induced by hemorrhagic shock. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, unblinded animal study. SETTING Surgical research laboratories of Shiga University of Medical Science. SUBJECTS Male specific-pathogen-free Sprague-Dawley rats. INTERVENTIONS The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) in a rat hemorrhagic shock (HS) model using the TRPV1 antagonist, capsazepine (CPZ). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA TRPV1, distributed within the sensory nerve, plays a role in the regulation of cardiovascular functions. TRPV1 may be involved in the cardiovascular responses to HS.(More)
The tolerance and safety associated with the administration order of the anthracycline and taxane drugs have not been evaluated. Breast cancer patients with node-positive or high-risk patients with node-negative were eligible. The feasibility and toxicity were evaluated in the following regimens—arm A, 3 courses of fluorouracil 500 mg/m2, epirubicin 100(More)
BACKGROUND Goshajinkigan (GJG) is used for the treatment of several neurological symptoms. We investigated the efficacy of GJG and mecobalamin (B12) against neurotoxicity associated with docetaxel (DOC) in breast cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty breast cancer patients were treated with DOC. Thirty-three patients (GJG group) received oral(More)
Exaggerated plasma concentrations of GLP-1 precede reactive hypoglycemia after oral glucose in gastrectomy patients, resulting in late dumping syndrome. Recently, we showed that GLP-1 elicits the activation of sympathetic outflow. Because sympathetic activation is thought to be a cause of early dumping, we hypothesized that exaggerated GLP-1 may contribute(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the silkworm larvae plasma (SLP) test is a reliable diagnostic marker of infection in patients with infectious complications following gastrointestinal surgery. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Department of Surgery, University Hospital, Shiga University of Medical Science. PATIENTS One hundred and twelve adult patients(More)
