To clarify the incidence of stenotic lesions according to the coronary arterial diameter in the acute phase. we investigated 190 patients with coronary arterial lesions who underwent an initial coronary angiogram (CAG) less than 100 days after the onset of Kawasaki disease. The largest diameters of the major branches were measured in the initial CAGs. The(More)
We used intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) to compare the degree of coronary artery dilatation during the acute phase of Kawasaki disease with the extent of intima-medial thickening more than 10 years later. We wanted to determine if there was a threshold degree of dilatation that was highly predictive of later thickening. Twenty-eight patients with a mean age(More)
We report a case of isolated congenital complete atrioventricular block with left ventricular dysfunction after pacemaker implantation that improved after the pacing site was changed. During the neonatal period, a pacemaker wire was implanted on the right ventricular epicardium and pacing was initiated. Decreased ejection fraction and a perfusion defect(More)
Primary ventricular tachycardia (VT) is rare in children. We report a child with VT exacerbated by fever which was ultimately fatal. His first episode occurred at 5 months old and recurred with fever, occasionally causing syncope. Episodes were difficult to control with antiarrhythmic agents during fever but remitted with antipyretics. He was admitted to(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Periodontal sensation in individuals with bruxism may differ from that in nonbruxers, as excessive amounts of occlusal force may be applied to the teeth during the night. However, this concept is not adequately addressed in the literature. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of bruxism on periodontal(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of sleep bruxism on periodontal sensation and tooth displacement in the molar region. Twenty-eight (28) subjects lacking objective or subjective abnormalities in stomatognathic function were divided into two groups representing bruxers (n=14) and controls (n=14). Sleep bruxism was confirmed based on(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the acute effects of clonazepam and clonidine on rhythmic masticatory muscle activity in young adults with primary sleep bruxism, as well as accompanying effects on sleep architecture and cardiac activity. This study used a double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled design. Polysomnography was performed on 19 subjects(More)
To investigate the association between each clinical diagnosis criterion for sleep bruxism (SB) and the frequency of jaw motor events during sleep. Video-polysomnography was performed on 17 healthy adult subjects (mean age, 26.7 ± 2.8 years), with at least one of the following clinical signs and symptoms of SB: (1) a report of frequent tooth grinding, (2)(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate electromyography of the inferior heads of lateral pterygoid muscles in experimental displacement of mandible, and its clinical application for reproduction and diagnosis of mandibular position. In the experiments, the mandibular position was changed in vertical and horizontal directions and muscle activity of the(More)
Major issues of NBI power supplies are a high-speed switching, regulation and transmission of dc ultra high voltage, and suppression of surge energy input to the beam source at breakdown. A GTO(gate turn off thyristor) inverter type power supply where the control is performed at low voltage ac side was designed for the ITER NB. Based on the remarkable(More)
