During a 5 year period we have identified leiomyomas of the small intestine in six patients using enteroclysis. Gastrointestinal bleeding were the presenting symptoms in five and partial small bowel obstruction in one. The time interval between the onset of symptoms and radiological diagnosis ranged between 3 months and 5 years. All patients had previously(More)
During a seven year period 18 benign small intestinal tumors were histologically documented in patients referred to us for a small bowel study, using a barium infusion technique. These included seven leiomyomas, five adenomatous polyps, two Peutz-Jeghers hamartomas, one myoepithelial hamartoma, one lipoma, one Brunner's gland adenoma and one neurilemmoma.(More)
In 1990, an attitude survey was conducted of 402 animal rights activists attending a national march in Washington, DC (S. Pious, 1991). The present article reports the results of a follow-up survey of 372 activists attending a similar event in 1996. A comparison of the 1990 and 1996 surveys suggests that during this time a significant shift took place in(More)
The antiemetic, pharmacokinetic, and metabolic profile of CP-99,994, a potent NK1 receptor antagonist, has been carefully evaluated. As a result we began a medicinal chemistry program which initially identified a 3-furanyl analogue (6) with improved antiemetic potency and a methyl sulfone (5) with enhanced metabolic stability and oral bioavailability. The(More)
The diagnosis mesothelial cyst is infrequently made pre-operatively, because of the relative rarity of this lesion as a cause of distinct abdominal complaints and a lack of definitive diagnostic tests. A case of a mesothelial cyst complicated by ileal torsion evaluated preoperatively by various imaging modalities, including plain radiographs, ultrasound,(More)
Enteroclysis patterns encountered in four patients with adult intestinal intussusception of different etiology—including a leiomyoma, a Peutz-Jeghers hamartoma, a metastatic colon carcinoma, and adhesions—were analyzed and compared to surgical and pathological findings. Emphasis was given not only to radiological signs indicative of impaired circulation but(More)
Epithelioid angiosarcoma is a rare tumor quite recently described. There is no accurate epidemiological study of this tumor. Among the internal organs, the liver is the one most frequently affected with angiosarcoma while there is no reference to the adrenal gland as a primary site. It is well known that the direct exposure to arsenicals (especially of(More)
Angiosarcoma of the small intestine is a rare malignancy that is clinically manifested by gastrointestinal bleeding, In the few cases prev iously reported discussion mainly focused on the recent contribution of immunocytochemistry in tumor identification. It seems that the radiologic appearance of the tumor is poorly documented, and its preoperative imaging(More)
