OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinicopathologic characteristics and prognostic factors of ovarian granulosa cell tumors. METHODS Medical records of 113 patients presenting between January 1995 and December 2007 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS One-hundred two patients had adult type disease, with a mean age of 46.2 years (range, 18 to 83 years) and a(More)
In recent years, the number of obese population in Korea has been growing up along with the economic development, environmental factors, and the change in life style. Considering the growth of obese population and the adverse effect of obesity on health, it is getting more important to prevent and diagnose the obesity with the quantitative measurement of(More)
BACKGROUND The administration of a single dose of propofol is reported to be effective in decreasing the incidence and severity of emergence agitation (EA) in children following sevoflurane anesthesia. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical usefulness of a single dose of propofol 1 mg/kg at the end of adenotonsillectomy for reducing the(More)
Erythropoietin (EPO) has been demonstrated the ability of recombinant human erythropoietin (r-Hu-EPO), when administered intracerebro-ventricularly, to improve stroke outcome through the reduction of stroke damage. In a brain ischemic model, however, systemic administration of r-Hu-EPO has not been intensely investigated given that in general, large(More)
BACKGROUND This study was done to evaluate the effect on pain relief when acetaminophen was added to lidocaine for intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA). METHODS SIXTY PATIENTS UNDERGOING HAND OR FOREARM SURGERY RECEIVED IVRA WERE ASSIGNED TO THREE GROUPS: Group C received 0.5% lidocaine diluted with 0.9% normal saline to a total volume of 40 ml (n =(More)
Treatment of lung cancer in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is difficult because the mortality rate after surgery or chemotherapy is high for these patients. Spontaneous regression of cancer is rare, especially in lung cancer. A 62-year-old man, previously diagnosed with IPF, presented with stage IIIC (T2N3M0) non-small cell lung cancer.(More)
A 52-year-old man was referred to our clinic for an 11.3 mm nodule in the left lower lobe that was discovered on a chest computed tomography (CT) scan. Eleven small nodules were subsequently found in both lungs. Initially, we performed a transthoracic needle aspiration using CT scan guidance. The pathologic report showed a few clusters of atypical cells(More)
There are many causes of prolonged postoperative muscle weakness, including drugs, residual anesthetics, cerebrovascular events, electrolyte imbalance, hypothermia, and neuromuscular disease. Neuromuscular diseases are relatively rare, with the most common being myasthenia gravis and Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS). We report an unusual case in(More)
The identification of marker chromosomes is important for genetic counseling. However, the origin or composition can rarely be defined with conventional cytogenetic technique alone. In this study, we investigated the incidences and types of marker chromosomes in Korean patients and attempted to establish a cost-effective diagnostic approach for marker(More)
BACKGROUND Computed tomography (CT) is often viewed as one of the most accurate methods for measuring visceral adipose tissue (VAT). However, measuring VAT and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) from CT is a time-consuming and tedious process. Thus, evaluating patients' obesity levels during clinical trials using CT scans is both cumbersome and limiting. (More)
