BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to examine the possibility of using an ischemically damaged heart, after preservation by the cavitary two-layer (CTL) method, as a donor in heart transplantation. METHODS Each donor heart was heterotopically transplanted to the recipient aorta. The grafts in Group 1 were immediately transplanted. In Group 2, the(More)
BACKGROUND The development of graft arteriosclerosis is a significant contributor to chronic rejection in organ transplant recipients. The purpose of the present study was to establish whether or not the cavitary two-layer method can prevent graft arteriosclerosis after rat heart transplantation. METHODS F-344 rats served as donors to Lewis recipients.(More)
In pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ), the occurrence of an injury during the removal of a stented tube is sometimes related to pancreatitis or late-onset stenosis of the pancreatic duct. In this study, we compare the outcomes of a PJ with an external stent versus an internal stent in a randomized study. We compared the complications including pancreatic fistula,(More)
OBJECTIVES The prognosis of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer remains very poor. This study was designed to elucidate the prognostic factors of patients with pancreatic cancer to evaluate appropriate treatment with gemcitabine. METHODS Ninety-nine consecutive patients with stage IV pancreatic cancer were treated in the gemcitabine era at the Kobe(More)
BACKGROUND Oxygenation of the pancreas during preservation by the two-layer method (TLM) has shown beneficial effects in islet transplantation. Here, we apply this concept (oxygenation) to the isolation process. METHODS Rat pancreases were digested using four different methods. Pancreases were digested with preoxygenated perfluorocarbon (PFC) in group 2(More)
PURPOSES This study was designed to clarify risk factors for the recurrence of stage II colon cancer in patients and to determine possible treatment options for postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy.
