Twelve female infants with double termination of the alimentary tract were reported. One patient had a high rectovaginal fistula, but in the other 11 cases the tract opened into the bowel uniformly at the level of the levator ani (anorectal-vestibular fistula). In these patients, diagnosis of the anatomical level of the fistula was made definitely with our(More)
PURPOSE Hepatoblastoma is the most common malignant liver tumor in childhood. Multicenter studies elucidate the optimal pre- or postoperative chemotherapeutic regimens. This report reviews the results of the Japanese Study Group for Pediatric Liver Tumor Protocol-1 (JPLT-1) and compares its outcomes with published reports of other studies. METHODS From(More)
BACKGROUND There is a significant association between hepatoblastoma and low birthweight. A case-control study was conducted to reveal risk factors for hepatoblastoma in children of extremely low birthweight (< 1,000 g). METHODS Prenatal and postnatal histories, including parental histories, of 12 hepatoblastoma cases and 75 birthweight-matched controls(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The association of intrahepatic biliary cysts in biliary atresia (BA) after hepatic portoenterostomy has drawn the attention of many pediatric surgeons and has become an important subject in clinical management, but the incidence and causes of this association are not well known. METHODS During the last 14 years, we operated on 33 BA(More)
Five cases of intrahepatic biliary cyst or cystic dilatation and one suspicious case were found (6.4%) among 93 survivors of biliary atresia. The age at manifestation of such cysts ranged from 6 months to 12 years. These cysts or cystic dilatations were treated surgically in two cases, by percutaneous transhepatic cholangiodrainage (PTCD) in two, and not(More)
Of 23 untreated and 7 treated (relapsed) neuroblastomas, 14 (11 untreated, 3 treated) had modal chromosome numbers in the diploid (45 to 51), 9 (8 untreated, 1 treated) in the triploid (60 to 77), and 6 (3 untreated, 3 treated) in the hypotetraploid (81 to 88) range, and one (untreated) had hypertetraploidy (100). The near-or-pseudodiploid and(More)
A 5-year-old girl underwent laparotomy in 1972 because of hepatomegaly and mottled radiopacities shown by cholangiography. Polycystic segmental dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts, typical of Caroli's disease, was found. Thereafter she remained in good health for over 21 years with careful medical management. In 1972 mottled radiopacities of the(More)
BACKGROUND To clarify the relation between intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (IR) and dysmotility, the authors investigated changes in the motility pattern in the duodenum and jejunum in an in vivo rat model of IR when artery- (and vein-) fed jejunum was clamped transiently. The authors also studied the effect of nitric oxide on the motility changes in this(More)
