  1. Comparative evaluation of ERCP and endosonography in the diagnosis of extrahepatic biliary obstruction and a suggested algorithm.

    The Turkish journal of gastroenterology : the o... 23(2):135 (2012) PMID 22706741

    Endosonography is an effective diagnostic tool for evaluating pancreatobiliary diseases. However, it is scarcely used in our healthcare system because of limited resources and scarcity of trained personnel. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of endosonography in patients presenting with...
  2. Endoscopic ligation compared with sclerotherapy for bleeding esophageal varices in children with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction.

    Hepatology 36(3):666 (2002) PMID 12198659

    Endoscopic sclerotherapy is an effective treatment for bleeding esophageal varices, but it is associated with significant complications. Endoscopic ligation, a new form of endoscopic treatment for bleeding varices, has been shown to be superior to sclerotherapy in adult patients with cirrhosis. To d...
  3. Biliary abnormalities associated with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction

    Hepatology 17(5):807 (1993)

    We prospectively studied 21 consecutive patients with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction for evidence of biliary tract disease. Two patients were first seen with extrahepatic cholestasis; another had recurrent cholangitis. All three patients with clinically manifest biliary disease were adults....
  4. Etiology and outcome of acute pancreatitis in children in Kashmir (India). An endemic area of hepatobiliary ascariasis.

    World Journal of Surgery 37(5):1133 (2013) PMID 23423447

    The purpose of the present study was to determine the etiology, management, and outcome of acute pancreatitis (AP) in children in an endemic area of hepatobiliary ascariasis (HBA). This was a prospective, hospital-based study over a 9-year period that included 156 children younger than 12 years of a...

    Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 19(2):139 (2004) PMID 14731122

    Endoscopic sclerotherapy has emerged as an effective treatment for bleeding esophageal varices both in adults and children but the long-term outcome is poorly defined in children. The authors report a 15-year follow up of sclerotherapy in children with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction. Between...
  6. Vesicoperitoneal fistula--an unusual cause of tense ascites.

    Indian Journal of Gastroenterology 26(3):138 (2007) PMID 17704585

    We report a 55-year-old man who developed tense ascites due to vesicoperitoneal fistula. He had undergone surgery 32 years ago for excision of an infected urachal cyst, the tract and the umbilicus.

  8. Endoscopic ligation vs. sclerotherapy in adults with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction: a prospective randomized study.

    Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 61(1):58 (2005) PMID 15672057

    Endoscopic sclerotherapy is a well-established treatment for bleeding esophageal varices, although it has a substantial complication rate. A prospective randomized trial was conducted to determine whether endoscopic variceal ligation is safer and more effective than sclerotherapy in adults with blee...

  10. Pantoprazole infusion as adjuvant therapy to endoscopic treatment in patients with peptic ulcer bleeding: prospective randomized controlled ...

    Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 21(4):716 (2006) PMID 16677158

    We investigated whether or not administration of pantoprazole infusion would improve the outcome in ulcer bleeding following successful endoscopic therapy. In this double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective trial, patients who had gastric or duodenal ulcers with active bleeding or non-bleeding vi...
