We report herein our experience of two cases of spontaneous hemopneumothorax in which the source of bleeding was found to be aberrant vessels. Both patients were successfully treated by early thoractomy. Case 1 was a 23-year-old female in whom chest X-ray revealed an air-fluid line and a bulla with a narrow restiform shadow connecting the pleural cupola.(More)
We examined the expressions of adhesion molecules (E-cadherin, β-catenin, CD44s, and CD44v6) and Ki-67 labeling index (Ki-67 LI) in low- and moderate-grade dysplasia and invasive carcinoma components in ten noninvasive intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas and eight invasive carcinomas associated with IPMNs of the pancreas using(More)
A 50-year-old man was diagnosed with non-resectable scirrhous gastric cancer of antrum accompanied with colon ileus due to direct invasion of the transverse colon. As the ileus improved after cecostomy, chemotherapy with TS-1/cisplatin(CDDP) was performed. Because of no response, 4 cycles of paclitaxel (PTX)/doxifluridine (5'-DFUR) therapy was performed as(More)
We report a case in which low-dose FP (5-fluorouracil/cisplatin, 5-FU/CDDP) therapy was remarkably effective for stage IVB advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with lung and bone metastases. 5-FU of 250 mg/body/day was continuously infused over 24 hours and CDDP of 10 mg/body/day was infused over 30 minutes from day 1 to day 5 in a week. Administration(More)
A small carcinoid was found in the rectum of a 55-year-old man, who had neither subjective symptoms nor the carcinoid syndrome. His serum serotonin level was within normal limits. Under a light microscope, the tumor was found to be a mixed type carcinoid which had infiltrated the submucosal layer, and showed a negative reaction to Grimelius' argyrophil(More)
A 62-year-old woman complained of abdominal pain and diarrhea from February 2, 2002. She was diagnosed with advanced cecal cancer with simultaneous multiple liver metastases. The serum level of CA 19-9 was 420 U/ ml. Ileoceal resection with D3 lymphnode dissection. The replacement of reservoir for hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) was performed on February 2,(More)
We report a patient with unresectable stage IV stomach cancer with metastasis to the paraaortic lymph nodes who achieved an effective response to neoajuvant chemotherapy, which allowed curability-B resection, and in whom weekly paclitaxel (TXL) therapy for postoperative recurrence was very effective in improving QOL. The patient was a 65-year-old man. After(More)
We report a case in which l-leucovorin/5-fluorouracil (l-LV/5-FU) combination therapy was remarkably effective for non-resectable advanced descending colon cancer with carcinomatous peritonitis. A 65-year-old man complained of severe abdominal distension, abdominal pain and pulmonary failure, and was diagnosed as having ileus due to descending colon cancer.(More)
We report a case in which l-Leucovorin/5-fluorouracil (l-LV/5-FU) therapy was remarkably effective for advanced rectal cancer as neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). A 54-year-old man complained of bloody stool and constipation,and was diagnosed as having stage IIIB advanced rectal cancer with N2 lymphnode metastases on July 31, 2003. Two cycles of NAC by(More)
