    Notes: Abstract The authors retrospectively reviewed 48 patients treated at Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH) between 1986 and 1995. There were 35 children and 13 adults, accounting for 10.1% of 345 pediatric and 0.68% of 1914 adult brain tumors in SNUH during the same period. The 48 cases consisted of 33 cases of germ cell tumor (69%, GCT); 6 of pineoblastoma (PB, 12.5%); 3 of pineocytoma (PC, 6.3%); 3 of anaplastic astrocytoma (6.3%); 1 of astrocytoma; 1 of glioblastoma; and 1 of ependymoma. The median age was 13 years (range 1–59) and the male-to-female ratio was 3.36:1. The most frequent presenting symptom was due to increased intracranial pressure (90%), followed by Parinaud syndrome or diplopia (50%). Patients with a benign tumor, such as teratoma (TE), astrocytoma, or ependymoma, underwent surgery by the occipital transtentorial approach (OTT) for attempted radical resection without adjuvant therapy, while patients with immature teratoma (imTE), PC, and anaplastic astrocytoma underwent regional radiotherapy (RT) after debulking via OTT. Seven patients with nongerminomatous malignant GCT (NG-MGCT) and 3 with germinoma (GE) underwent craniospinal radiation only, 6 with GE, a NG-MGCT, and 2 with GE+TE received craniospinal radiotherapy (CSRT) after debulking via OTT. Three patients with GE, 4 with NG-MGCT, and 3 with PB underwent radiochemotherapy after debulking via OTT. Forty-four patients were followed up after treatment. The median follow-up period was 36 months. All patients with GE were alive after RT at 36 months (median) of follow-up (range 7–70 months). All with GE+TE and TE were alive. Three patients with PC or astrocytoma were also alive with stable or no evidence of disease. In 1 of the 3 cases of imTE there was a recurrence. However, 4 patients with NG-MGCT died, all of whom had undergone CSRT only; 2 PB patients were alive (12, 19 months), 1 in a moribund status (36 months), and 2 were dead (6, 60 months). The overall mean survival time with pineal tumors was 66 months and the 3-year survival rate was 84% with minimal posttreatment complications. It is concluded that pineal region tumors have male and childhood predominances, and the most common tumor is GCT. The majority of pineal region tumors are malignant. Pineal region tumors can be approached safely and effectively and the surgical complications are mostly transient. Their prognosis is dependent on the pathologies and treatment modalities.

    Description / Table of Contents: Résumé. Les dommages osseux importants dans les fractures ouvertes du Tibia sont généralement traités par une greffe osseuse conventionelle: on utilise soit une greffe de péroné vascularisée, soit la technique du fixateur (type llizarov). Une greffe de péroné vascularisée peut être meilleure qu’une greffe osseuse conventionnelle, mais c’est une greffe qui est techniquement, difficile et parfois impossible à réaliser. Dans ce cas, le transfert du péroné avec l’utilisation du fixateur externe (type Ilizarov) est une méthode alternative. Cette opération peut être accomplie en transférant la partie ostéotomisée du péroné sur le Tibia au moyen de cables «olives». Récemment, un jeune homme de 20 ans a présenté une fracture ouverte du Tibia de type Gustilo IIIb. Les dommages causés aux tissues étaient sévères. Seule l’artère tibiale postérieure était perméable et l’artère péronéale était partiellement endommagée. Un recouvrement par lambeau de grand dorsal fût réalisé afin de couvrir les tissues endommagés. Le seule artère tibiale postérieure étant déjà utilisé pour le recouvrement, il était difficile de réaliser une greffe de péroné vascularisée. De plus il était techniquement difficile d’accomplir un déplacement graduel en utilisant la fixateur externe (type Ilizarov) car la partie distale du Tiba était perdue. Ainsi, un transfert de péroné fût immédiatement réalisé avoir appliqué le fixateur externe. Une bonne fusion osseuse, ainsi qu’une hypertrophie du péronée ont été obtenues, bien que ces 2 opérations aient été effectuées simultanément.
    Notes: Abstract. Massive segmental bony defects in open tibial fractures are generally treated with conventional bone grafting, a free vascularised fibular graft or the ring fixator technique. A vascularised fibular graft may be superior to a conventional bone graft, but it is technically difficult and occasionally impossible. In such circumstances, fibular transfer in conjunction with a ring fixator is an alternative method. This procedure can be accomplished by transferring the osteotomised part of the fibula to the tibia by means of olive wires. The authors have treated a 20-year-old male who presented with a Gustilo type IIIB open tibial fracture. The soft tissue defect was severe, only the tibialis posterior artery was patent and the peroneal artery was partially damaged. A latissimus dorsi flap was performed to cover the soft tissue defect. Since the patent tibialis posterior artery had already been used for the flap, it was difficult to perform a vascularised fibular graft. Moreover, it was technically difficult to accomplish a gradual transport using a ring fixator because the distal tibia was lost. For this reason, the fibular transfer was performed immediately after the ring fixator was applied. Good bony union and fibular hypertrophy were obtained even though these two procedures were undertaken simultaneously.

    Notes: Summary The authors present the case of an intracranial tumour consisting of both schwannoma and meningioma within the same tumour, in a patient with neurofibromatosis-2 (NF-2). A pre-operative diagnosis of this mixed tumour was not made. However, retrospectively, a meningiomatous area was found inside the acoustic neurinoma on magnetic resonance (MR) images. Predominant schwannoma with a minor component of meningioma was confirmed by histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations. The transitional zones of these two different tumours were macroscopically sharp but microscopically interdigitated. The patient had another meningioma and schwannoma in a separate section of the cranial cavity. Based on this patient, it is suggested that the collision of two kinds of tumours is the most likely hypothesis to explain the development of mixed components of schwannoma and meningioma within the same tumour.

    Notes: Summary  To clarify clinical features and to elucidate prognostic factors and prognosis, the authors retrospectively analyzed 16 cases of gliomatosis cerebri treated at Seoul National University Hospital between January 1988 and December 1995. Age at diagnosis ranged from 19 to 62 (median 34) years and male to female ratio was 10:6. Most presented with headache or seizure, and the mean duration of symptoms was 12.8 months. A poorly defined diffuse high signal intensity lesion, extending in T2-weighted images for two lobes or more, was the characteristic magnetic resonance (MR) image finding. On postcontrast T1-weighted MR imaging, focal enhancement of the lesion was detected in five cases. All patients underwent histological confirmation by craniotomy (9 cases) or stereotactic biopsy (7 cases). Histologically, all patients had compatible findings of gliomatosis cerebri which are the widespread infiltration of neoplastic glial cells with minimal destruction of pre-existing structures.  After histological diagnosis, external radiation therapy was begun except in one case, who declined this treatment. Fourteen patients completed the whole procedure and received the planned dose (mean 5780 cGy). Median survival time after diagnosis was 38.4 months. In univariate analysis, the Ki-67 labelling index (〉1) showed significant correlation with the length of survival (p=0.006).  It is suggested that 1) gliomatosis cerebri can be diagnosed by a combination of MR imaging findings and histological examination; 2) histological diagnosis and external radiation therapy might be a good treatment modality; 3) the Ki-67 labelling index correlates significantly with survival time.

    Notes: Abstract The iron granular solid, in which ultrafine iron particles are dispersed, has been prepared with both SiO2 and Cu matrices using the sol-gel method. The structure and morphology of these granular solid samples are investigated by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The magnetic properties are measured using a vibrating sample magnetometer with 20 kOe maximum applied field. It is found that the coereivity decreases very slightly with temperature from 80 to 300 K for these Fe−SiO2 and Fe−Cu granular solid samples with different average size of iron particles from 50 to 300 Å. The magnetic anisotropy has been obtained from the measured magnetization curves for these granular solid samples using the law of approach to saturation, and the obtained values of the effective magnetic anisotropy are all more than 106 erg/cm3, which are larger than the value of the magnetocrystalline anisotropy for bulk iron. The coercivity vs temperature for these granular solid samples has been calculated using the Kneller and Luborsky theory, in which the magnetic anisotropy values obtained from the law of approach to saturation are used. The trends of the calculated coercivity as a function of temperature are in reasonable agreement with the observations.

    Notes: Abstract Although liming soil to reduce the heavy metal uptake by plants has been recommended generally, there is some disagreement with the practice based on the results of recent studies. Radishes, Raphanus sativa L. var. Paekyong, were grown in greenhouse pots which were filled with soils treated with 1.52 mg kg−1 Cd and 25.37 mg kg−1 Pb, respectively and amended with lime at five rates of 0, 0.25, 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0% by dry soil weight. Plants were harvested three times at 25, 50, and 75 days after sowing and the roots and shoots separated. After the plant samples were digested with HNO3-HClO4, Cd was analyzed by flame AAS and Pb by graphite furnace AAS. A large amount of Cd was translocated into the radishes, which accumulated dramatically with time. Compared to Cd, Pb uptake was very low and accumulated slowly. Cd contents were very much higher in the shoots than the roots, but Pb was not significantly different. Liming or increased soil pH decreased Cd uptake markedly with increased lime level; Pb influence was negligible. Yields were decreased with excessive liming, but not by the levels of Cd or Pb added.

    Notes: Catalytic effects of different temperatures (55, 70, 85, and 100°C) on lipid oxidation were studied in aqueous- and chloroform/methanol-extracted beef model lipid systems containing iron forms inherent in beef (water-extractable, diffusate, nondiffusate, ferritin, myoglobin, hemoglobin), hematin, FeCl2, or FeCl3. Heating increased thiobarbituric acid and peroxide values in both systems. All forms of iron catalyzed lipid oxidation in aqueous systems, with greatest oxidation by heme and low molecular weight iron fractions. Oxidation in lipid extracts was not increased by ferritin, FeCl2, or FeCl3, but heme iron was the major oxidation catalyst. Lipid stability decreased with addition of any iron forms inherent in beef or with increased heating, which helps understanding of rapid oxidation of meat during refrigerated storage or after cooking.
