We report herein on the use of the body tracking test (BTT), which is a method for quantitatively evaluating dynamic body balancing function, and how the body center moves during tracking by healthy subjects. We investigated 779 healthy subjects with no history of vertigo or balance disorder and a mean age of 37.9 years. Breakdown is as follows. Under 10(More)
BACKGROUND Studies show that immunoglobulin E (IgE) is produced in the local nasal mucosa in allergic rhinitis patients. However, no study involved the measurement of IgE levels in the local nasal mucosal tissue in allergic rhinitis patients. This study aimed to measure the local IgE levels in the nasal mucosal tissue and to compare the levels of total IgE(More)
INTRODUCTION Surgery of the ear and nose often involves drilling, resulting in exposure of the bone surfaces. Fibrin is usually used to cover the exposed bone surfaces; however, this approach may result in granulation, infection, stenosis, and adhesion. Several other methods are available for covering the exposed bone surfaces. For example, implantation of(More)
We treated 1145 patients diagnosed as having benign paroxysmal postural vertigo at the Toho University Medical Center Sakura Hospital from August 2007 to July 2009 by the exercise therapy developed by us. The most advantageous characteristic of our method is that patients can perform the exercises themselves at their own pace in their homes, even if the(More)
Body Tracking Test (BTT) is a testing method of the dynamic body balance function wherein movement of the center of gravity in accordance with a moving visual target stimulus is examined to evaluate the tracking function of the body. The objects were the patients who were diagnosed as having vestibular neuronitis at the Department of Otolaryngology in Toho(More)
CONCLUSION The antero-posterior (AP) body tracking test (BTT) showed that the dominant foot could affect the tilt angle of the sway movement, delineated by primary component analysis. Differences associated with the dominant foot could represent the difference in space perception of each person. OBJECTIVES To examine whether the dominant foot could affect(More)
Immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a systemic, refractory, chronic inflammatory disease characterized by high serum IgG4 levels and histopathological findings of IgG4-positive plasma cell infiltration and fibrosis.1,2 Although recent reports have documented cases of refractory chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) accompanied by IgG4 infiltration(More)
