Recognizing imaging characteristics after ophthalmic surgery is necessary for radiologists to prevent misdiagnosis. We review typical appearances of intraorbital implanted devices and materials on CT and MRI with demonstration of the common surgical procedures. EX-PRESS glaucoma filtration devices appear as punctate areas of metal attenuation on CT and are typically placed at the corneoscleral junction. The imaging manifestations after cataract extraction are absence of the native lens of ovoid mass and the intraocular lens with high attenuation on CT and low signal intensity on MRI...

Kikuchi-Fujimoto's disease is a benign, self-limiting disorder characterized by regional tender lymphadenopathy fever and night sweats. It most commonly affects Asian adult females younger than 40 years of age. We report a case of 26 year female who presented with cervical lymphadenopathy, which on FNAC revealed Necrotizing Granulomatous inflammation which was unresponsive for three months of antitubercular therapy. A diagnosis of Kikuchi Fujimoto's disease was suggested on review of the slides at our institute and a biopsy confirmed the diagnosis...

Streptococcus suis is a zoonotic pathogen that can be transferred from pigs to humans. The serotypes 2 and 14 are prevalent among patients with S. suis infections, while other serotypes (i.e., 1, 4, 5, 16, and 24) have been detected in rare human cases. To the best of our knowledge, the present patient handling with raw pork is the first human case of uncomplicated bacteremia due to S. suis serotype 5 in Japan. We confirmed the new sequence type 752 of this isolate. Virulence-associated gene profiling was performed; both sly (encoding the hemolysin suilysin) and mrp (encoding a muramidase-released protein) were detected without amplification of epf (encoding the extracellular factor)...

Zebrafish possess a remarkable capacity for cardiac regeneration throughout their lifetime, providing a model for investigating endogenous cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating myocardial regeneration. By contrast, adult mammals have an extremely limited capacity for cardiac regeneration, contributing to mortality and morbidity from cardiac diseases such as myocardial infarction and heart failure. However, the viewpoint of the mammalian heart as a postmitotic organ was recently revised based on findings that the mammalian heart contains multiple undifferentiated cell types with cardiogenic potential as well as a robust regenerative capacity during a short period early in life...

In cases of thyroid papillary carcinoma, a less aggressive cancer, surgeons may hesitate to perform total thyroidectomy on patients with poor general condition because these may experience longer survival without undergoing surgery. To investigate the influence of general patient condition on the patients' survival who received total thyroidectomy, we utilized the American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Status (ASA-PS). We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing total thyroidectomy under general anesthesia and graded by ASA-PS between 2004 and 2014...

UNLABELLED: <i> CASE: A</i> 30-year-old woman presented with posterior cervical pain and left-sided omalgia. The patient had a history of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for which she had received prophylactic whole-brain irradiation(including at the upper cervical level)17 years previously. A magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)scan obtained 1 month previously showed an intradural extramedullary mass lesion at the left C1/2 level. We initially considered the tumor to be a benign schwannoma, but the patient subsequently developed left hemiparesis and was consequently admitted 2 days after her first visit...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Severe calcifications of the coronary arteries are still a major challenge in coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography (CCTA). Subtraction CCTA using a 320-detector row CT scanner has recently been introduced for patients with severe calcifications. However, the conventional subtraction CCTA method requires a long breath-holding time of approximately 20-40 seconds. This is a major problem in clinical practice because many patients may not be able to perform such a long breath-hold...

BACKGROUND: The standard regimen of systemic chemotherapy for patients with advanced urothelial cancer (UC) changed from methotrexate, vinblastine, adriamycin, and cisplatin (MVAC) to gemcitabine and cisplatin (GC) in 2008 when the use of gemcitabine for UC began to be reimbursed by public health insurance in Japan. We examined its influence on the chemotherapy trend in elderly patients aged ≥80 years. METHODS: Among 345 patients included in our previous multicenter retrospective cohort study (chemotherapy for urothelial carcinoma: renal function and efficacy study; CURE study), the outcome of 30 patients aged ≥80 years was reviewed before and after 2008 and compared with 315 young patients...

Polyspermy or the penetration of more than one sperm cell remains a problem during porcine in vitro fertilization (IVF). After in vitro culture of porcine zygotes, only a low percentage of blastocysts develop and their quality is inferior to that of in vivo derived blastocysts. It is unknown whether the cytoplasmic maturation of the oocyte is sufficiently sustained in current in vitro maturation (IVM) procedures. The complex interplay between oocyte and cumulus cells during IVM is a key factor in this process...

A 69-year-old man underwent endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for early gastric cancer (EGC) at the lesser curvature in the angle of stomach. Histological examination revealed tub1, pM, ly0, v0, pLM(-), pVM(-), and the resection was considered curative. The scar after ESD was followed by esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and biopsy. Twenty months later, EGD showed an ulcerative lesion in the vicinity of the ESD scar, and histological examination of the biopsy specimen showed adenocarcinoma. A distal gastrectomy with lymph node dissection was then performed...
