Changes of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were studied after exposure to formalin, metriphonate or potassium permanganate, which are used in aquaculture as anti-ectoparasitic chemicals. The CRP level in normal trout sera is 88+/-5 microg ml(-1) according to sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. CRP levels(More)
Isolated ventricular inversion with concomitant atresia of the left-sided (tricuspid) atrioventricular valve has previously been reported in the English literature in only two patients, and they died during early infancy. We describe the clinical, two-dimensional echocardiographic and angiocardiographic features in a 10-year-old boy with these rare cardiac(More)
INTRODUCTION In elderly persons, the sitting position in daily life is very important due to the weakness in locomotion. In previous studies, sagittal spinal alignment was mainly analyzed in the standing position. However, in order to study the sagittal spinal alignment of elderly persons, the estimation of spinal alignment in the sitting posture is also(More)
The case of a female neonate with truncus solitarius pulmonalis (TSP), a rare congenital heart anomaly, is reported. She died four days after birth. A single right ventricle with common atrioventricular (AV) valve was associated with (Collet & Edwards type II) truncus arteriosus communis, and appeared to have a single coronary artery with an abnormally high(More)

OBJECTIVE Spine surgeries in elderly patients have increased in recent years due to aging of society and recent advances in surgical techniques, and postoperative complications have become more of a concern. Postoperative delirium is a common complication in elderly patients that impairs recovery and increases(More)
BACKGROUND Sudden cardiac death commonly occurs in young patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM); however, their heart rate variability (HRV) and blood pressure (BP) response to daily life activities is not well known. METHODS AND RESULTS HRV and ambulatory BP monitoring were performed in 20 patients (age range: 7-21 years) and 57 age-matched(More)
