Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt versus endoscopic sclerotherapy in the elective treatment of recurrent variceal bleeding.
The present study was designed to compare elective transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) and endoscopic sclerotherapy (EST) in terms of their efficacy in preventing recurrent bleeding from gastro-oesophageal varices in patients with advanced liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension. O...
Effect of antegrade graft cardioplegia combined with passive graft perfusion in on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.
I levels 12 h after operation compared with group A and this was more pronounced in subgroups with severe right coronary artery stenosis and poor left ventricular ejection fraction than in the whole population. It is concluded that antegrade graft cardioplegia and graft perfusion with warm blood dur...
Predictive value of assessment of different modalities in the diagnosis of infantile cholestasis.
This study investigated the relative accuracy and roles of abdominal ultrasonography, hepatobiliary scintigraphy and liver biopsy in the diagnosis of infantile cholestasis. A total of 50 infants (27 females) aged 1 - 12 months were classified into those with intrahepatic causes of cholestasis (n = 2...
Trauma scores and neuron-specific enolase, cytokine and C-reactive protein levels as predictors of mortality in patients with blunt head tra...
This study evaluated serum neuron-specific enolase (NSE), cytokine and high-sensitivity C-reactive-protein (hs-CRP) levels, along with the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and Revised Trauma Score (RTS), as predictors of mortality in the early posttraumatic period, in 100 Turkish patients wi...
Corneal thickness in patients with age-related macular degeneration.
This observational study was designed to compare corneal thickness in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with the thickness in healthy control subjects to determine if there is a correlation between corneal thickness and the development of AMD. A total of 69 patients (119 eyes) wit...
Spontaneously identified gastric sarcoidosis: a report of three cases.
We report three patients diagnosed initially with gastric sarcoidosis. Two had no other identified involvement, and one had involvement of the lungs and hilar lymph nodes. Gastroscopy was performed because of abdominal discomfort or as a follow-up examination for partial gastrectomy. This revealed a...
An open, pilot study to evaluate the potential benefits of coenzyme Q10 combined with Ginkgo biloba extract in fibromyalgia syndrome.
An open, uncontrolled study was undertaken to measure the subjective effects of coenzyme Q10 combined with a Ginkgo biloba extract in volunteer subjects with clinically diagnosed fibromyalgia syndrome. Anecdotal reports from patients with fibromyalgia syndrome have claimed benefits f...
Effect of cisapride on gastric emptying in patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
To investigate the effect of cisapride in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastric emptying time, measured using scintigraphy, and reflux symptoms were compared before and after cisapride therapy in 30 patients with endoscopically proven GERD. Gastric emptying time was also measured in 20 a...
Conjugated linoleic acid reduces body fat in healthy exercising humans.
This study was designed to investigate the efficacy and tolerability of daily conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in healthy exercising humans. This was a random-double-blind, placebo-controlled study in 20 healthy humans of normal body weight and body mass index less than 25.0 kg/m2, who did standardize...
The effect of hyaluronic acid-carboxymethylcellulose in reducing adhesion reformation in rabbits.
These results suggest that the use of Seprafilm may be a valuable new anti-adhesion material for abdominal or pelvic surgery and may be superior to existing anti-adhesion materials and techniques....
