BACKGROUND/AIMS Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has become accepted as a minimally invasive treatment for gastric neoplasms. However, the development of synchronous or metachronous gastric lesions after endoscopic resection has become a major problem. We investigated the characteristics of multiple gastric neoplasms in patients with early gastric(More)
PURPOSE Radiofrequency catheter ablation of the cavotricuspid isthmus (CTI) is effective in the treatment of typical atrial flutter (AFL) and atrial fibrillation (AF). AF and AFL often coexist. However, AF often occurs following successful ablation of CTI. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictors of concomitant AF following successful(More)
Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been widely accepted as a curative treatment for gastric neoplasm. Pyloric stenosis is a chronic complication that can be caused by ESD. The aim of this study is to clarify the risk factors and management for pyloric stenosis. From January 2004 to January 2014, a total of 126 patients who underwent ESD adjacent to(More)
Lower extremities of the leprosy patients are characterized by the decreased sensation of the foot from peripheral nerve damage. As a result, repetitive foot ulcers are frequently seen. When these repetitive shallow ulcers become infected, they result in deep soft tissue ulcers and even osteomyelitis. The treatment of these ulcers in leprosy is a(More)
Cholangitis and cholecystitis are intra-abdominal infections that show poor prognosis upon progression to sepsis and multiorgan failure. Administration of antibiotics with high antimicrobial susceptibility and removal of infected bile at the initial treatment are important. After undergoing ERCP for diagnostic purposes, a 58-year-old man developed acute(More)
Although adenocarcinoma is a well known complication of chronic inflammatory bowel disease, primary gastrointestinal lymphoma occurring in Crohn's disease is rare. A 40-year-old man with 10 year-history of Crohn's disease had multiple longitudinal ulcerative lesions on descending colon in follow-up colonoscopic examination. Microscopic examination of(More)
Cryptococcus neoformans, an encapsulated fungus, is an important opportunistic pathogen that can cause meningitis in im-munocompromised patients. Since patients with cryptococcemia have high mortality, it is essential to make an early diagnosis and promptly initiate antifungal therapy. However, it is often very difficult to differentiate between(More)
