The cerebral blood flow and cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen (CBF and CMRO2) of three cases of childhood moyamoya disease were examined by positron-emission-computed tomography for the purpose of investigating the mechanism of the "re-build-up" phenomenon on EEG. Decrease in both CBF and CMRO2 were observed following hyperventilation. However, dissociation(More)
Positron emission tomography was used to investigate the metabolism of nucleic acids by 18F-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (18F-FUdR) in 22 patients with gliomas. Sixteen cases of high grade glioma clearly demonstrated a region of high activity with a differential absorption rate (DAR) of 0.64 +/- 0.34. Six cases of low grade glioma failed to reveal a positive(More)
A case of primary intracranial yolk sac tumor, the first known case growing in the frontal lobe, is compared with similar cases of suprasellar region. The case, 18-year-old female, suffered from headache, vomiting and visual disturbance for one month prior to the hospitalization. Plain CT scan demonstrated suppressed left anterior horn and normal density(More)
We describe a patient with subcutaneous hematoma associated with manual cervical massage during carotid artery stenting.A 73-year-old man with left cervical carotid artery stenosis presented with left amaurosis fugax. We performed carotid artery stenting using distal embolic protection with balloon occlusion. Dual antiplatelet therapy was maintained in the(More)
Whether the speed of body mass (BM) reduction influences the body composition is uncertain. To investigate the effects of rapid vs slow body mass reduction on body composition, rats were divided into three groups; fed ad libitum for 16-day (Control, C); received restricted food intake during 16-day to decrease BM slowly (Slow, S); or fed ad libitum for(More)
The value of 18F-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (18F-FUdR) as a tracer for nucleic acid metabolism was studied using an experimental rat brain-tumor model. The 18F activity in the tumor tissue 45 minutes after intravenous injection of 18F-FUdR was about 12 times higher than that in the contralateral cortex. Double-labeled autoradiography with 18F-FUdR and(More)
We experienced two cases of "Osteosclerosis" who were 12 and 15 year old sisters. Previous reported cases of this disease are 50 cases and among them only one patient was reported in Japan. Osteosclerosis seems to be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Parental consanguinity is also observed. The peculiar facies are evident in infancy, characterized(More)
