        A genome-wide association study in the Japanese population identifies susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes at UBE2E2 and C2CD4A-C2CD4B

        Yamauchi, Toshimasa,Hara, Kazuo,Maeda, Shiro,Yasuda, Kazuki,Takahashi, Atsushi,Horikoshi, Momoko,Nakamura, Masahiro,Fujita, Hayato,Grarup, Niels,Cauchi, Stephane,Ng, Daniel P K,Ma, Ronald C W,Tsunoda, Nature Publishing Group, a division of Macmillan P 2010 Nature genetics Vol.42 No.10

        We conducted a genome-wide association study of type 2 diabetes (T2D) using 459,359 SNPs in a Japanese population with a three-stage study design (stage 1, 4,470 cases and 3,071 controls; stage 2, 2,886 cases and 3,087 controls; stage 3, 3,622 cases and 2,356 controls). We identified new associations in UBE2E2 on chromosome 3 and in C2CD4A-C2CD4B on chromosome 15 at genome-wide significant levels (rs7612463 in UBE2E2, combined P = 2.27 ? 10<SUP>??9</SUP>; rs7172432 in C2CD4A-C2CD4B, combined P = 3.66 ? 10<SUP>??9</SUP>). The association of these two loci with T2D was replicated in other east Asian populations. In the European populations, the C2CD4A-C2CD4B locus was significantly associated with T2D, and a combined analysis of all populations gave P = 8.78 ? 10<SUP>??14</SUP>, whereas the UBE2E2 locus did not show association to T2D. In conclusion, we identified two new loci at UBE2E2 and C2CD4A-C2CD4B associated with susceptibility to T2D.

        UV-Blue Light Emission from ZnO Nanoparticles

        Obuliraj Senthilkumar,Kazuki Yamauchi,Kasilingam Senthilkumar,Takahiro Yamamae,Yasuhisa Fujita,Naoki Nishimoto 한국물리학회 2008 THE JOURNAL OF THE KOREAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY Vol.53 No.1

        Gas evaporation was employed to prepare nitrogen-doped ZnO nanoparticles, which showed in- tense UV/blue emission (380 nm) at room temperature. The thin lms were deposited by dip coating with nanoparticles dispersed in isopropanol and water. The PL spectrum showed dominant acceptor bound excitons around 371 nm at low temperatures, which was due to the substitution of nitrogen acceptors in oxygen sites. Nitrogen doping was also conrmed from Raman spectroscopy, which showed a nitrogen-related local vibrational mode (LVMN) at 583 cm-1.

        Low-Dose Tramadol and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug Combination Therapy Prevents the Transition to Chronic Low Back Pain

        Kazuhide Inage,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Takane Suzuki,Miyako Suzuki,Yoshihiro Sakuma,Go Kubota,Yasuhiro Oikawa,Takeshi Sainoh,Jun Sato,Kazuki Fujimoto,Yasuhiro Shiga,Koki Abe,Hirohito Kanamoto,M 대한척추외과학회 2016 Asian Spine Journal Vol.10 No.4

        Study Design: Retrospective study. Purpose: To determine whether low-dose tramadol plus non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug combination therapy could prevent the transition of acute low back pain to chronic low back pain. Overview of Literature: Inadequately treated early low back pain transitions to chronic low back pain occur in approximately 30% of affected individuals. The administration of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is effective for treatment of low back pain in the early stages. However, the treatment of low back pain that is resistant to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is challenging. Methods: Patients who presented with acute low back pain at our hospital were considered for inclusion in this study. After the diagnosis of acute low back pain, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug administration was started. Forty patients with a visual analog scale score of >5 for low back pain 1 month after treatment were finally enrolled. The first 20 patients were included in a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug group, and they continued non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug therapy for 1 month. The next 20 patients were included in a combination group, and they received low-dose tramadol plus non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug combination therapy for 1 month. The incidence of adverse events and the improvement in the visual analog scale score at 2 months after the start of treatment were analyzed. Results: No adverse events were observed in the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug group. In the combination group, administration was discontinued in 2 patients (10%) due to adverse events immediately following the start of tramadol administration. At 2 months, the improvement in the visual analog scale score was greater in the combination group than in the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug group (p <0.001). Conclusions: Low-dose tramadol plus non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug combination therapy might decrease the incidence of adverse events and prevent the transition of acute low back pain to chronic low back pain.

        Do Physical Symptoms Predict the Outcome of Surgical Fusion in Patients with Discogenic Low Back Pain?

        Seiji Ohtori,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Yawara Eguchi,Yasuchika Aoki,Junichi Nakamura,Masayuki Miyagi,Miyako Suzuki,Gou Kubota,Kazuhide Inage,Takeshi Sainoh,Jun Sato,Yasuhiro Shiga,Koki Abe,Kazuki 대한척추외과학회 2016 Asian Spine Journal Vol.10 No.3

        Study Design: Retrospective case series. Purpose: To determine whether symptoms predict surgical outcomes for patients with discogenic low back pain (DLBP). Overview of Literature: Specific diagnosis of DLBP remains difficult. Worsening of pain on flexion is a reported symptom of DLBP. This study sought to determine whether symptoms predict surgical outcomes for patients with DLBP. Methods: We investigated 127 patients with low back pain (LBP) and no dominant radicular pain. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to select patients with disc degeneration at only one level. If pain was provoked during discography, we performed fusion surgery (87 patients). Visual analogue scale score and responses to a questionnaire regarding symptoms including worsening of pain on flexion or extension were assessed. Symptom sites before surgery were categorized into LBP alone, or LBP plus referred inguinal or leg pain. We followed 77 patients (average 3.0 years) and compared symptoms before surgery with surgical outcome. Results: Sixty-three patients with a good outcome showed postsurgical pain relief (≥60% pain relief) and 14 patients with a poor outcome did not (<60% pain relief). In patients with good outcomes, worsening of LBP was evident in 65% of cases on flexion and in 35% on extension. However, these findings were not significantly different from those in patients with poor outcomes. The percentage of patients with LBP alone was significantly lower and the percentage of patients with LBP plus referred inguinal or leg pain was significantly higher in the group with good surgical outcome compared with patients in the group with poor surgical outcome (p <0.05). Conclusions: Worsening of pain on extension may be a symptom of DLBP. Surgical outcomes were superior in patients with both LBP and either referred inguinal or leg pain compared with those having LBP alone.

        Change of Lumbar Ligamentum Flavum after Indirect Decompression Using Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

        Seiji Ohtori,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Yawara Eguchi,Yasuchika Aoki,Junichi Nakamura,Masayuki Miyagi,Miyako Suzuki,Gou Kubota,Kazuhide Inage,Takeshi Sainoh,Jun Sato,Kazuki Fujimoto,Yasuhiro Shiga 대한척추외과학회 2017 Asian Spine Journal Vol.11 No.1

        Study Design: Retrospective case series. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine changes in the ligamentum flavum thickness and remodeling of the spinal canal after anterior fusion during a 10-year follow-up. Overview of Literature: Extreme lateral interbody fusion provides minimally invasive treatment of the lumbar spine; this anterior fusion without direct posterior decompression, so-called indirect decompression, can achieve pain relief. Anterior fusion may restore disc height, stretch the flexure of the ligamentum flavum, and increase the spinal canal diameter. However, changes in the ligamentum flavum thickness and remodeling of the spinal canal after anterior fusion during a long follow-up have not yet been reported. Methods: We evaluated 10 patients with L4 spondylolisthesis who underwent stand-alone anterior interbody fusion using the iliac crest bone. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed 10 years after surgery. The cross-sectional area (CSA) of the dural sac and the ligamentum flavum at L1–2 to L5–S1 was calculated using a Picture Archiving and Communication System. Results: Spinal fusion with correction loss (average, 4.75 mm anterior slip) was achieved in all patients 10 years postsurgery. The average CSAs of the dural sac and the ligamentum flavum at L1–2 to L5–S1 were 150 mm2 and 78 mm2, respectively. The average CSA of the ligamentum flavum at L4–5 (30 mm2) (fusion level) was significantly less than that at L1–2 to L3–4 or L5–S1. Although patients had an average anterior slip of 4.75 mm, the average CSA of the dural sac at L4–5 was significantly larger than at the other levels. Conclusions: Spinal stability induced a lumbar ligamentum flavum change and a sustained remodeling of the spinal canal, which may explain the long-term pain relief after indirect decompression fusion surgery.

        Elevated Levels of Serum Pentosidine Are Associated with Dropped Head Syndrome in Older Women

        Yawara Eguchi,Toru Toyoguchi,Kazuhide Inage,Kazuki Fujimoto,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Miyako Suzuki,Hirohito Kanamoto,Koki Abe,Masaki Norimoto,Tomotaka Umimura,Masao Koda,Takeo Furuya,Yasuchika A 대한척추외과학회 2019 Asian Spine Journal Vol.13 No.1

        Study Design: A retrospective observational study was performed. Purpose: We investigated the prevalence of sarcopenia in dropped head syndrome (DHS), and the relationship between biochemical markers, including major advanced glycation end products (AGEs), pentosidine, and DHS in older women. Overview of Literature: AGEs have been implicated in the pathogenesis of sarcopenia. Methods: We studied 13 elderly women with idiopathic DHS (mean age, 77.2 years) and 20 healthy volunteers (mean age, 74.8 years). We used a bioelectrical impedance analyzer to analyze body composition, including appendicular skeletal muscle mass index (SMI; appendicular lean mass [kg]/[height (m)]2). Cervical sagittal plane alignment, including C2–C7 sagittal vertical axis (C2–C7SVA), C2–C7 angle, and C2 slope (C2S), was measured. Biochemical markers, such as serum and urinary pentosidine, serum homocysteine, 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D, and 25-hydroxyvitamin D, were measured. The level of each variable was compared between DHS and controls. The relationship between biochemical markers and DHS was examined. Results: Sarcopenia (SMI <5.75) was observed at a high prevalence in participants with DHS (77% compared to 22% of healthy controls). Height, weight, femoral bone mineral density, appendicular lean mass, total lean mass, and SMI all had significantly lower values in the DHS group. Serum and urinary pentosidine, and serum homocysteine were significantly higher in the DHS group compared to controls. Analysis of cervical alignment revealed a significant positive correlation of serum pentosidine with C2–C7SVA and C2S. Conclusions: Sarcopenia was involved in DHS, and high serum pentosidine levels are associated with severity of DHS in older women.

        Long-Term Outcomes of In Situ Fusion for Treating Dysplastic Spondylolisthesis

        Kazuhide Inage,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Miyako Suzuki,Yoshihiro Sakuma,Go Kubota,Yasuhiro Oikawa,Takeshi Sainoh,Jun Sato,Kazuki Fujimoto,Yasuhiro Shiga,Koki Abe,Hirohito Kanamoto,Masahiro Inoue 대한척추외과학회 2017 Asian Spine Journal Vol.11 No.2

        Study Design: Retrospective, observational, single-center study. Purpose: To investigate the long-term outcomes of in situ fusion procedures for treating dysplastic spondylolisthesis. Overview of Literature: In situ fusion performed in patients with dysplastic spondylolisthesis avoids the development of nerve complications. Methods: In total, 12 of 28 patients who underwent in situ fusion for treating dysplastic spondylolisthesis at Chiba University Hospital from 1974 to 2004 were followed up in August 2013. Surgical complications were evaluated. Low back pain and leg pain were assessed using a visual analog scale (VAS). Vertebral alignment, including the lumbosacral angle and lumbar lordosis angle measurement on radiographic images (profile view in the neutral standing position), was evaluated during preoperative, postoperative, and final examinations. Results: The mean follow-up duration, patient age at the final examination, and patient age at operation were 20.0±7.2, 42.3±13.3, and 22.3±11.4 years, respectively. No complications were reported. Mean VAS scores for low back pain and leg pain were significantly lower at the final examination than at the preoperative examination (p <0.05). At the preoperative, postoperative, and final examinations, the mean lumbosacral angle was 32.3°±14.2°, 33.7°±11.8°, and 36.5°±16.4°, while the mean lumbar lordosis angle was 51.0°±14.8°, 48.6°±18.8°, and 49.6°±15.5°, respectively. No significant differences were noted among these values across the different time periods (p <0.05). Conclusions: In situ fusion performed in patients with dysplastic spondylolisthesis avoids the development of nerve complications such as nerve paralysis that may occur after repositioning operation and maintains appropriate long-term sagittal alignment, even 20 years after operation.

        Efficacy of TachoSil, a Fibrin-Based Hemostat, for Anterior Lumbar Spine Surgery

        Jo Watanabe,Seiji Ohtori,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Yawara Eguchi,Yasuchika Aoki,Junichi Nakamura,Miyako Suzuki,Kazuhide Inage,Jun Sato,Yasuhiro Shiga,Koki Abe,Kazuki Fujimoto,Hirohito Kanamoto,Ei 대한척추외과학회 2016 Asian Spine Journal Vol.10 No.5

        Study Design: Retrospective case series. Purpose: To examine the efficacy of TachoSil for vessel injury in 6 patients who underwent anterior lumbar fusion surgery (ALF). Overview of Literature: ALF for the lumbar spine has a high rate of success, although intraoperative concerns and iatrogenic complications are known, and injury of a major vessel is sometimes a complication. The efficacy of TachoSil, a fibrin-based hemostat, has been reported for several types of surgery; however, use of TachoSil for ALF surgery has not been described. Here, we report on the efficacy of TachoSil in 6 patients, who underwent ALF after vascular surgeons having difficulty in repairing vessels. Methods: Two man and 4 women with average age of 50.8±10.9 (mean±standard deviation) were diagnosed with a vertebral tumor (2 patients), L4 degenerative spondylolisthesis (2 patients), and L5 spondylolytic spondylolisthesis (2 patients) and underwent ALF. The blood vessels injured included the common iliac vein in 2 patients and a branch of a segmental artery from the aorta in 4 patients. We consulted a vascular surgeon to suture or repair the vessels during surgery, and although the vascular surgeon attempted to address the injuries, suturing or repair was not possible in these cases. For this reason, we used TachoSil to repair the injury in the vessels walls or to stop the bleeding. Results: Time to pressure hemostasis using TachoSil was 34±12 minutes, and total blood loss was 1,488±1,711 mL. Nevertheless, all vessel injuries were controlled by the use of TachoSil. Conclusions: We recommend the use of TachoSil for vessel injuries that vascular surgeons cannot suture or repair during ALF surgery.

        Efficacy of Direct Injection of Etanercept into Knee Joints for Pain in Moderate and Severe Knee Osteoarthritis

        Seiji Ohtori,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Yawara Eguchi,Nobuyasu Ochiai,Shunji Kishida,Kazuki Kuniyoshi,Yasuchika Aoki,Junichi Nakamura,Tetsuhiro Ishikawa,Masayuki Miyagi,Hiroto Kamoda,Miyako Suzuki 연세대학교의과대학 2015 Yonsei medical journal Vol.56 No.5

        Purpose: Osteoarthritic (OA) pain is largely considered to be inflammatory pain. However, during the last stage of knee OA, sensorynerve fibers in the knee are shown to be significantly damaged when the subchondral bone junction is destroyed, and this can induce neuropathic pain. Several authors have reported that tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) in a knee joint plays a crucial role in pain modulation. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy of etanercept, a TNFα inhibitor, for pain in knee OA. Materials and Methods: Thirty-nine patients with knee OA and a 2–4 Kellgren-Lawrence grading were evaluated in this prospectivestudy. Patients were divided into two groups; hyaluronic acid (HA) and etanercept injection. All patients received a single injectioninto the knee. Pain scores were evaluated before and 4 weeks after injection using a visual analogue scale (VAS) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), and they were compared between the groups. Results: Before injection, VAS and WOMAC scores were not significantly different between the groups (p>0.05). Significant pain relief was found in the etanercept group at 1 and 2 weeks by VAS, and at 4 weeks by WOMAC score, compared with the HA group (p<0.05). No adverse events were observed in either group. Conclusion: Direct injection of etanercept into OA knee joints was an effective treatment for pain in moderate and severe OA patients. Furthermore, this finding suggests that TNFα is one factor that induces OA pain.

        Mini-Open Anterior Retroperitoneal Lumbar Interbody Fusion: Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion for Lumbar Spinal Degeneration Disease

        Seiji Ohtori,Sumihisa Orita,Kazuyo Yamauchi,Yawara Eguchi,Nobuyasu Ochiai,Shunji Kishida,Kazuki Kuniyoshi,Yasuchika Aoki,Junichi Nakamura,Tetsuhiro Ishikawa,Masayuki Miyagi,Hiroto Kamoda,Miyako Suzuki 연세대학교의과대학 2015 Yonsei medical journal Vol.56 No.4

        Purpose: Surgery for lumbar spinal degeneration disease is widely performed. While posterior decompression and fusion are popular, anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) is also used for treatment. Extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF) is commonly used for noninvasive ALIF; however, several complications, such as spinal nerve and psoas muscle injury, have been reported. In the current study, we examined the clinical efficacy and complications of oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) for lumbar spinal degeneration disease. Materials and Methods: Thirty-five patients with degenerated spondylolisthesis, discogenic pain, and kyphoscoliosiswere examined. All patients underwent OLIF surgery (using a cage and bone graft from the iliac crest) with or without posterior decompression, without real-time electromyography monitoring. Posterior screws were used in all patients. Visualanalog scale (VAS) score and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) were evaluated before and 6 months after surgery. Surgical complications were also evaluated. Results:Pain scores significantly improved after surgery, compared to those before surgery (p<0.05). There was no patient who underwent revision surgery. There was no spinal nerve, major vessel, peritoneal, or urinary injury. Few patients showed symptoms from psoas invasion. Conclusion: OLIF surgery produced good surgical results without any major complication.
