A 72-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of hemosputum. Enhanced CT showed ruptured true aortic arch aneurysm. True aortic arch aneurysm ruptured at distal portion of aneurysm. The aorta was chronically dissected from an entry proximal to ruptured portion, to ascending aorta. Ascending aorta to aortic arch was replaced with 20 mm gelatin(More)

Abstract ORIGIN is a proposal for the M3 mission call of ESA aimed at the study of metal creation from the epoch of cosmic dawn. Using high-spectral resolution in the soft X-ray band, ORIGIN will be able to identify the physical conditions(More)
Establishment of safer cerebral protection remains an important issue in reducing cerebral complications during aortic arch repair. Various cerebral perfusion techniques have been used. Recently, the usefulness of retrograde cerebral perfusion (RCP) combined with hypothermia was reported. The authors evaluated the cerebral microcirculation during RCP by(More)
For the application of the latissimus dorsi muscle (LDM) to circulatory assist, the muscle is stimulated with co- or counterpulsation during the cardiac cycle. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the blood supply to the LDM and its muscular performance during each respective stimulation. The origin of the LDM was connected to a tension gauge, a(More)
The purposes of this study were monitoring and regulating latissimus dorsi muscle (LDM) performance with muscle internal pressure and thickness, and with burst stimulation parameters, respectively. The unconditioned LDM flap of a pig was connected to a measurement system to examine force and contraction length. Internal pressure was measured using a(More)
BACKGROUND It has not been clarified how tightly the heart should be wrapped for maximal augmentation of cardiac function in cardiomyoplasty. METHODS Hearts in acute failure induced by propranolol were wrapped with the left latissimus dorsi muscle, loosely (loose CMP), moderately (moderate CMP), and tightly (tight CMP) in each of 5 pigs. To measure the(More)
