The influence of intravenously administered serotonin on water and electrolyte fluxes in the in vivo rabbit jejunum and ileum was examined. Animals were divided into four groups: (1) those receiving saline intravenously while a glucose-free isotonic saline solution perfused the jejunum and ileum; (2) serotonin given intravenously while glucose-free(More)
An elderly female with an acute episode of congestive heart failure, unaccompanied by any periods of hypotension, developed fulminant hepatic failure with an accompanying coagulopathy. Attempts to establish an etiology for her acute hepatic insufficiency, other than cardiac failure, proved negative. Fulminant hepatic failure as a consequence of congestive(More)
An 18-year-old patient who had recurrent attacks of acute pancreatitis was found on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography to have an aberrant pancreatic duct which communicated with a juxtagastric cyst. Excision of a gastric antral duplication cyst and the aberrant pancreas was curative. Of the five previously reported cases, none of which had(More)
The influence of intravenously administered synthetic salmon calcitonin on water, electrolyte and calcium fluxes in in vivo rabbit jejunum and ileum was examined. Rabbits were divided into four groups: those receiving (1) saline intravenously while a glucose-free isotonic saline solution perfused the jejunum and ileum; (2) calcitonin intravenously while the(More)
A 63-year-old white man presented with highly aggressive peptic ulcer disease that was nongastrinoma in cause. Intensive medical therapy, which included intravenous cimetidine, failed to ameliorate the course of the disease. The patient's gastric acid output was entirely uninfluenced by cimetidine administration with demonstrably adequate blood levels of(More)
BACKGROUND Increased demand for endoscopic procedures has led to the provision of these services without prior consultation (open access). The need for accurate medical referral information for these patients is vital for patient safety. OBJECTIVE To assess the accuracy of endoscopic referral information. DESIGN Over a 4-month study period, patient(More)
