抄録 Many authors have reported on iatrogenic vertebral artery (VA) injury, but, to our knowledge, this is the first report of a dominant VA injury with compensatory blood flow from the hypoplastic VA. A 23-year-old woman with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and atlantoaxial subluxation sustained injury to her dominant VA after occipitocervical fusion using transarticular screws. This did not result in lethal consequences due to compensation from her hypoplastic contralateral VA. Postoperative angiography, however, illustrated occlusion of the dominant left side, while the hypoplastic VA of the right side was enlarged. The patient experienced vertigo and loss of consciousness several times during rehabilitation. At the 4-year follow-up exam, bony fusion was observed, with no neurological deficits or correction loss. She had had no episodes of unconsciousness and no recurrence of any symptoms over the previous 3 years.

抄録 <p>Our initial experience with laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholecystitis and cholelithiasis was reviewed in 42 patients and the data were compared with those of 21 patients who underwent conventional open cholecystectomy previously. Only one patient required conversion to an open operation. Three of the 42 patients had minor complications without death in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The mean time for the laparoscopic cholecystectomy was 100 +/- 40 min, as compared with 79 +/- 21 min for the open cholecystectomy. The average postoperative hospital stay was 11.4 +/- 7.1 days for the laparoscopic procedure and 35.5 +/- 15.4 days for the conventional procedure. The laparoscopic cholecystectomy offers the patients shortened hospitalization and lower complications and can replace the conventional open cholecystectomy in large degree, at least in the uncomplicated cases.</p>

抄録 <p>The effects of the combination of natural human tumor necrosis factor-alpha (nHuTNF-alpha) and natural human interferon-alpha (nHuIFN-alpha) on the induction of apoptosis were investigated by immunohistochemical analysis with BM-1/JIMRO monoclonal antibody in RPMI 4788 tumor cells. Few tumor cells in the control culture could spontaneously undergo apoptosis. The number of positive cells increased at 2 and 4 h after treatment with nHuTNF-alpha (1 x 10(5) U/ml) and nHulFN-alpha (1 x 10(5) IU/ml). This effect was clearly maintained from 8 h up to 72 h of culture. The number of apoptotic cells also greatly increased with doses, suggesting that the apoptosis induced by nHuTNF-alpha and nHuIFN-alpha in combination was dose-dependent. nHuTNF-alpha or nHuIFN-alpha alone could induce apoptosis, but the induction increased significantly when the two cytokines were combined. These findings indicate that by combining nHuTNF-alpha and nHuIFN-alpha apoptosis can be synergistically induced in RPMI 4788 tumor cells, and may have specific therapeutic implications for clinical treatments using these two cytokines.</p>
