Ossifying fibroma is relatively common in the maxilla, but rare in the cranial vault. A 10-year-old girl was referred for painful swelling of the left temporal region. On admission, she presented no abnormal physical and neurological findings except for the painful swelling. Plain skull X-ray films showed a radiolucent lesion of the left temporal bone about(More)
External decompression is an effective treatment for acute intracranial hypertension, but the repair of cranial defect by cranioplasty is necessary sooner or later. Various materials have been used for cranioplasty, such as bone, metallic materials and methyl methacrylate. Alumina ceramic (Bioceram), which is known to be extremely compatible with tissues,(More)
A water-soluble Chl a/b-protein (CP673) was isolated and purified from Brussels sprouts (Brassica oleracea L. var. gemmifera DC). The protein had a molecular mass of 78 kDa and an isoelectric point of 4.7, consisted of three or four subunits of 22 kDa and was extremely heat-stable. Although CP673 contained about one Chl a per protein, the blue and red(More)
The value of gonadotropin in the body fluids of germ cell tumor patients is its usefulness as a tumor marker. It is also used for differential diagnosis and/or judgement of therapeutic effects. In order to clarify the most effective value of gonadotropin as a tumor marker in the body fluids, we compared the value in serum, liquor and urine with one another.(More)
This investigation was undertaken to make clear the influence of ferric metabolism on Ga-67 distribution in human body. Count ratios for each organ to femoral soft tissue (i.e. relative Ga-67 uptake) were calculated in 125 scintigrams obtained 48 hours following injection, and the relation between the relative Ga-67 uptake in each organ and serum Fe, or(More)
Although computed tomography may change the criteria of cerebral angiography in neurosurgery, the neurosurgeon still requires angiographic confirmation of vascular anatomy at the operative sites, and catheterization for intra-luminal constructive surgery is also seeing progress. Cerebral angiography is a rather safe procedure; however, persistent serious(More)
