Due to the rapid advancements in the knowledge and available information, a consortium of members from countries across Asia Pacific, "APASL ACLF Research(More)
PURPOSE Enteral nutrition (EN) is effective, easy to provide, cheaper, and associated with fewer complications in comparison with parenteral nutrition in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). However, the nasogastric (NG) route for enteral supplements still remains to be established, and most studies have used the nasojejunal (NJ) route. The purpose of this(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the noninferiority of early enteral feeding through nasogastric (NG) compared to nasojejunal (NJ) route on infectious complications in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS Patients with SAP were fed via NG (candidate) or NJ (comparative) route. The primary outcome was the occurrence of any(More)
AIM This study was conducted to assess the predictive value of coagulation abnormalities in determining disease severity and prognosis of acute pancreatitis (AP). METHODS Patients of AP and 25 healthy volunteers were included in this prospective observational study. The final outcomes were disease severity assessed by Computed Tomography Severity Index,(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathophysiology of chronic pancreatitis (CP). We evaluated the effects of antioxidant supplementation on pain relief, oxidative stress, and antioxidant status in patients with CP. METHODS In a placebo-controlled double blind trial, consecutive patients with CP were randomized to groups that(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to determine the effect of antioxidant (AO) supplementation on surrogate markers of fibrosis in patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP). METHODS In a randomized, placebo (PL)-controlled trial, patients with CP were randomized to groups that were given PL or AO for 3 months. Outcome measures were change in serum levels of(More)
AIM Oxidative stress (OS) and endothelial dysfunction are implicated in accelerated atherosclerosis in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We assessed endothelial function, OS, and carotid intimal medial thickness (CIMT) and their correlates in 44 CKD stage 5 patients (group III) before and after hemodialysis (HD), 40 patients of CKD stages 3 and 4 (group II),(More)
The postcholecystectomy patients who have a T-tube in situ offer a convenient route through the T-tube to perfuse solvents into the common bile duct (CBD) for dissolving any retained common duct stones. If successful, this approach is much simpler and cheaper than the usual therapeutic modality used for CBD stones, namely, endoscopic papillotomy. Thus a(More)
