BACKGROUND The management of extrahepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) in children is controversial. We report our experience with a prospective evaluation of a stepwise protocol based on severity of portal hypertension and feasibility of mesoportal bypass (MPB). METHODS After diagnosis, children with EHPVO underwent surveillance endoscopies and(More)

The present study evaluates the role of oesophageal manometry in clinical practice. Over 5 years, 347 consecutive patients were evaluated in our oesophageal laboratory. The reasons for referral were: dysphagia (11.5%), gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) (46.7%), non-cardiac chest pain (28.5%), connective tissue disease (6.9%) and other symptomatology(More)
There was estimated a higher incidence of de novo inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) after solid organ transplantation than in the general population. The onset of IBD in the organ transplant recipient population is an important clinical situation which is associated to higher morbidity and difficulty in the medical therapeutic management because of possible(More)
