The presence of intraepithelial inclusion bodies (Leuchtenberger bodies) was recorded in rectal or colonic specimens from 130 patients. Large to moderate number of intraepithelial bodies were recorded in 81.8 percent of 55 colorectal adenomas from patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Conversely, none of the 55 non-FAP adenomas or of the 20(More)
In ten healthy volunteers the emptying of 300ml 15% glucose solution from the stomach was determined with two independent methods; a gamma camera method using 99mTc-DTPA as indicator and a withdrawal method, modified after Hunt, with PEG as indicator. At 40 min the gastric contents were withdrawn, and the stomach washed out. The quantity of indicator in the(More)
88 patients, operated upon for duodenal or prepyloric ulcers with a parietal cell vagotomy, were investigated in order to define the macro- and microscopical boundaries between the antrum and fundus of the stomach. The macroscopical boundary was defined as the point on the minor curvature where the nerve of Latarjet intersects the stomach or gives off its(More)

The present study is an attempt to examine this situation. STUDY DESIGN In 48 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of longitudinal long-term studies of quality of life (QOL) after surgery with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, where cohorts of patients are used as their own controls. METHODS Forty ulcerative colitis patients who had undergone IPAA were prospectively assessed while they had a temporary ileostomy, and(More)
