We have developed a new transcutaneous energy transmission (TET) system for a totally implantable biventricular assist device (BVAD) system in the New Energy and Industrial Development Organization (NEDO) artificial heart project. The TET system mainly consists of an energy transmitter, a hybrid energy coil unit, an energy receiver, an internal battery(More)
Although Cryptococcus gattii can cause life-threatening complications, putative virulence factors of C. gattii remain controversial. Therefore, we conducted the present study to elucidate the virulence factors of the yeast and found that the mortality rate of mice infected with C. gattii R265 was significantly higher than that of those infected with C.(More)
Gastric carcinoma remains the second commonest cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Presence of the carcinoma cell in the pulmonary artery is serious condition that might cause remodeling of the pulmonary artery. The present study conducted detailed histopathological analyses to elucidate how gastric carcinoma cells may affect the structure and hemodynamics of(More)
Flow visualization analysis was applied to the Baylor/Miwatec centrifugal artificial heart to evaluate its fluid dynamic characteristics regarding antithrombogenicity. An eccentric vortex was found both in the upper and the lower gaps of the impeller, which is supposed to be caused by the eccentric inlet port. Therefore, one-way flow toward the outlet is(More)
Calcifying odontogenic cysts (COC) were immunohistochemically described using different keratin proteins and involucrin as well as histopathology. The cystic lining epithelium was composed of calcifying, keratinizing, squamous, and columnar epithelial cells, and included calcified masses of irregular shape and various size as well as ghost cells. Calcifying(More)
In this study, we discuss a multiple comparison procedure with a control for multivariate one-sided test in each pairwise comparison. For pairwise comparisons, we use the approximate likelihood ratio test statistics derived by Tang et al. (An approximate likelihood ratio test for a normal mean vector with nonnegative components with application to clinical(More)
The multivariate analogue of the one sided test derived in Kudô (1963) is considered. A handy method of computing the test statistic and its significance probability is given. The method is based on applying sweep out operations on a certain matrix in a systematic manner and applying the Fortran subroutine of Sun (1988).
