OBJECTIVES The combination of computed tomography with hepatic arteriography and arterial portography (CTHA/CTAP) can detect additional hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) nodules undetected by conventional dynamic CT. METHODS In this single-center, randomized, open-label, controlled trial, we randomly assigned 280 patients who were diagnosed as having HCC by(More)
BACKGROUND The high recurrence rate after surgery for colorectal cancer liver metastasis (CLM) remains a crucial problem. The aim of this trial was to evaluate the efficacy of adjuvant therapy with uracil-tegafur and leucovorin (UFT/LV). METHODS In the multicenter, open-label, phase III trial, patients undergoing curative resection of CLM were randomly(More)

BACKGROUND Most patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have underlying liver disease, therefore, precise preoperative evaluation of the patient's liver function is essential for surgical decision making. METHODS We developed a grading system incorporating only two variables, namely, the serum albumin level and the indocyanine green retention rate at(More)
BACKGROUND Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) is inversely associated with cognitive function. However, it is not known whether baPWV predicts cognitive decline (CD) in later life. We examined whether or not baPWV is an independent risk marker of subsequent CD in a population of older Japanese. METHODS Among 982 adults aged 65 years or older who(More)
INTRODUCTION When unique identifiers are unavailable, successful record linkage depends greatly on data quality and types of variables available. While probabilistic linkage theoretically captures more true matches than deterministic linkage by allowing imperfection in identifiers, studies have shown inconclusive results likely due to variations in data(More)
