Purpose The present study investigated whether the pulmonary intersegmental planes could be identified with the intravenous injection of vitamin B2 using a fluorescent camera and whether this method can be used instead of the inflation-deflation technique or the intravenous indocyanine green (ICG) method. Methods In experiment 1, the vitamin B2 was intravenously injected to visualize the pulmonary intersegmental plane and perform segmentectomy, and the visualized pulmonary intersegmental line wa...

While there are many reports on partial aortic root remodeling, it is rarely performed for chronic aortic dissection of the coronary artery. This report presents a case of a 69-year-old man incidentally diagnosed with aortic dissection during routine checkup. He had a history of percutaneous coronary intervention from the left main trunk to the left anterior descending artery and left circumflex artery. Computed tomography revealed a chronic type A aortic dissection with an aneurysmal aortic roo...

FOXO3 is a member of the FOXO transcription factors thought to play a tumor-suppressor role in gastrointestinal cancer, while tumor-promoting function of FOXO3 has also been reported. These results suggest a context-dependent function of FOXO3 in tumor development. However, the relationship between the FOXO3 expression pattern and its role in tumorigenesis has not been elucidated. We examined the FOXO3 expression in 65 human primary gastric cancer and patient-derived xenograft tissues by immunoh...

A right ventricular cardiac tumour was incidentally detected in a 50-year-old woman during medical check-up. Transthoracic echocardiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed that the right ventricular tumour was widely attached to the free wall of the right ventricle and extended to the right ventricular outflow tract. The tumour was excised surgically, and the postoperative course was uneventful. Histological examination revealed that the tumour was a cardiac haemangi...

Previous reports have described laparoscopic mesh repair for lumbar hernia due to iliac crest bone harvest, but there have been no reports of reoperation with laparoscopic mesh repair for recurrent cases after laparoscopic mesh repair. Here, we describe the case of a 72-year-old Japanese woman with lumbar hernia recurrence 6 years after laparoscopic mesh repair for lumbar hernia due to iliac crest bone harvest. We performed a successful reoperation with laparoscopic mesh repair. Laparoscopic sur...

Aortoenteric fistula after endovascular aortic repair for an abdominal aortic aneurysm is a rare but severe complication. Particularly, a case of inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm is extremely rare and there are only 3 reported cases. A 70-year-old man underwent endovascular aortic repair for impending rupture of an inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm and was medicated steroids for approximately 2 years. Four years after endovascular aortic repair, he developed endograft infection with a...

OBJECTIVES For small pulmonary nodules that are unidentifiable by palpation or in endoscopic surgeries wherein palpation is not feasible, visualizing their location is necessary when performing pulmonary sublobar resection procedures, such as wedge resection or segmentectomy. We invented a new transbronchial lung-marking technique using the photodynamic diagnosis endoscope system and vitamin B2 and examined its feasibility and safety via porcine studies. METHODS We established the marking proced...

Antifreeze proteins are an effective additive for low-temperature preservation of solid organs. Here, we compared static hypothermic preservation with and without antifreeze glycoprotein (AFGP), followed by nonfreezing cryopreservation of rat hearts. The heart was surgically extracted and immersed in one of the cardioplegia solutions after cardiac arrest. Control rat hearts (n=6) were immersed in University of Wisconsin (UW) solution whereas AFGP-treated hearts (AFGP group) (n=6) were immersed i...
