A 10-day-old male patient was referred to our hospital with severe umbilical bleeding. Prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) were prominently prolonged. Plasma coagulation factor X (FX) activity and antigen levels were 1% and 0.6%, respectively. A DNA sequence analysis of his leukocytes revealed a compound heterozygous state; known Gly244 to Arg (p.G244R) in exon 6 and a novel mutation of Gly 435 to Ser (p.G435S) in exon 8. A pedigree analysis showed that p.G244R originated from the paternal side, while p...

The transsacral approach is not routinely used for treating rectal tumors. We report the case of a 65-year-old man with a large adenoma at the posterior wall of the mid-rectum who was treated via the transsacral approach. The same lesion had been treated using transsacral endoscopic microsurgery 8 years previously. Moreover, 11 years previously he had undergone a laparotomy for bladder cancer, and an Indiana pouch had been constructed. Abdominal computed tomography showed that the pouch was adjacent to the rectum...

T2 (tumor invades perimuscular connective tissue; no extension beyond serosa or into liver) gallbladder cancer has generally been treated by S4aS5 subsegmentectomy (S4aS5 HR). We investigated the therapeutic effect of full-thickness cholecystectomy (FC) and gallbladder bed resection (GBR), in terms of tumor location and resection margin (distance from the tumor). At our department we employ the following protocol to determine the extent of resection needed to achieve R0 status: (1) A tumor located in the gallbladder fundus (Gf) or body (Gb) and only on the free peritoneal side was classified as P-type, for which full-thickness cholecystectomy and regional lymph node dissection were performed...

Since the loss of balance can result in falls or lower extremity injuries during sports or daily activities, quantitative evaluation of one’s ability to maintain balance with changes in the direction of motion is crucial. The present study aimed to assess whether the trajectory length of the center of pressure (COP) and peak values of the ground reaction force (GRF) following a single-leg hop landing differ when hopping forward or laterally, and to ascertain disparities in balance characteristics due to differences in hop direction...

An elongated styloid process (ESP) is present in 4% of the general population. It is sometimes found incidentally by panoramic radiography or computed tomography in the clinical setting. Few detailed morphometric studies of this phenomenon have been performed, however, especially regarding its histologic aspects. During anatomic dissection of a 71-year-old man who had died from cardiac failure and whose body had been donated to our department for medical student training, an ESP was found while disconnecting the stylohyoid muscle from the hyoid bone...

A 73-year-old woman with arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO) was underwent a crossover stenting for an aortoiliac bifurcation from the right common iliac artery (CIA) with a self-expandable bare-metal stent (SE-BMS); however, a new stenosis later occurred just behind the bifurcation of the left CIA. An ex vivo experiment demonstrated that culotte-stenting by additional implantation of a balloon-expandable bare-metal stent (BE-BMS) through stent struts of the SE-BMS would be empirically infeasible. Although we had initially planned a T-stenting for the additional implantation of a BE-BMS in the left CIA, we finally deployed the stent in the CIA with the proximal end protruding into the previously-implanted SE-BMS through the stent struts to avoid incomplete coverage of the stenosis by reference to the ex vivo experiments...

We report a case of subcutaneous ganglion adjacent to the acromioclavicular joint with massive rotator cuff tear [1-7]. An 81-year-old woman presented with a ganglion adjacent to the acromioclavicular joint that had first been identified 9 months earlier. The ganglion had recurred after having been aspirated by her local physician, so she was referred to our hospital. The puncture fluid was yellowish, clear and viscous. Magnetic resonance imaging identified a massive rotator cuff tear with multi- lobular cystic lesions continuous to the acromioclavicular joint, presenting the "geyser sign"...

Because of the protective effect of estrogen for atherosclerosis, the prevalence of acute coronary syndrome in women before menopause is low. We report a rare case of unstable angina in a young Japanese female who had a history of cigarette smoking and contraceptive use. Her coronary stenosis was successfully treated by percutaneous coronary intervention.

Dynamic balance was evaluated using the trajectory length of the center of foot pressure (COP) in the early phase from immediately after landing to the time of pastoral maintenance. Ten young volunteers with an average age of 23.8 years were asked to stand on one foot on a horizontal floor, hop forward half a step and land on one foot 10 times on each of 3 non-consecutive days. The peak of the vertical component of the floor reaction force (Fz), and the initiation time of the maximum value (tz) and COP trajectory length were measured by a force plate (AMTI, Ltd...

If the risk of progression to asthma could be predicted in patients with rhinitis, prevention of asthma might become possible. The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between the duration of rhinitis symptoms and acute asthma attacks in children with a history of asthma who were not on treatment for asthma. In 94 children with a history of asthma who were asymptomatic after completing asthma treatment, we investigated the onset and duration of nasal discharge and cough related to allergic rhinitis...

Analysis of the structural changes and cell-to-cell interactions occurring during wound healing of burn injuries is essential to elucidate the morphological characteristics of the reconstitution of tissue architecture. However, conventional approaches do not provide sufficient information with respect to cell-to-cell interactions during wound healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the interaction between bone marrow-derived cells and resident stromal cells throughout the wound healing of burn injuries, using immunohistochemistry and focused ion beam/scanning electron microscope tomography...

The hybrid training system (HTS) resists the motion of a volitionally contracting agonist muscle using force generated by its electrically stimulated antagonist. We have developed a new training method using the principle of HTS. This study was designed to evaluate the effect of HTS with electrical stimulation on muscle strength and physical function by comparing it against training without electrical stimulation in older adults. 16 subjects were randomly divided into two groups: the squat and single leg lift training (control, CTR) group, and the CTR with HTS training group...
