OBJECTIVES Optimal treatment of spontaneous isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection (SISMAD) has not been established in part because the natural history of this rare vascular disease is not well established. We attempted to determine the natural history of SISMAD by observing patients who underwent conservative treatment. METHODS Among 58(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperuricaemia commonly occurs in renal transplant recipients (RTRs), but the effects of post-transplant hyperuricaemia on kidney transplant outcome have not been clearly established. This work was designed to explore the impact of hyperuricaemia on renal transplant outcome. METHODS The authors examined this issue by analysing the clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared treatment outcomes of patients with supra-aortic arterial (SAA) occlusive disease due to Takayasu arteritis (TA) treated with bypass surgery or endovascular treatment. METHODS All patients diagnosed with TA from September 1994 to November 2010 were identified using the hospital database. This retrospective study included 21(More)
The effects of nicotine on vascular endothelial cells have not been completely elucidated. We performed this study to assess the changes in cellular behaviors of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) treated with nicotine. We examined changes in cell count and morphology and assayed cellular migration with Boyden chamber and microcapillary tube(More)
PURPOSE To determine the risk factors of delayed recanalization of isolated calf vein thrombosis (CVT). METHODS One hundred fifty limbs of 110 patients with CVT between September 2007 and April 2010 were enrolled. We used ultrasonography for the diagnosis and follow-up examinations of CVT. We calculated recanalization rates at 1 and 3 months after initial(More)
Genetic interaction between donor and recipient may dictate the impending responses after transplantation. In this study, we evaluated the role of the genetic predispositions of stromal-derived factor-1 (SDF1) [rs1801157 (G>A)] and CXC receptor 4 (CXCR4) [rs2228014 (C>T)] on renal allograft outcomes. A total of 335 pairs of recipients and donors were(More)
The cardiovascular system may be one of the target organs of both immunoglobulin G4 related and non-related systemic multifocal fibrosclerosis. We present a case of IgG4 non-related systemic multifocal fibrosclerosis mimicking mitral stenosis on echocardiography. For a more detailed differential diagnosis, we used multimodal imaging techniques. After(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical features and treatment outcomes after combined endovascular and embolosclerotherapy treatment of pelvic arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). METHODS From November 1996 to May 2011, we treated 12 patients (seven males, five females; mean age, 38.1 ±14.6 years; age range, 23-70 years) with pelvic AVMs. Our treatment strategy(More)
The purposes of this study are to review the results of endovascular and surgical interventions and to evaluate clinical appearances of recurrent arterial involvement in patients with peripheral arterial Behçet disease (BD). A total of 28 patients with peripheral arterial BD were identified. There were 24 males (85.7 %), with mean age of 40.0 ± 9.0 years(More)
PURPOSE Computed tomography venography (CTV) with three-dimensional reconstruction can provide complementary road maps for varicose vein (VV) surgery. The purpose of this study is to verify the role of CTV in the treatment of VV in terms of advantages and complications. METHODS Ninety-four consecutive patients with VV underwent conventional high ligation,(More)
