Our aim was to evaluate bone status in boys with haemophilia using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative ultraSonography (QUS), and in addition, to compare these two methods with the use of biochemical markers of bone turnover. Twenty-six boys with a mean decimal age of 12.08 ± 4.44 years were included in the study which included a DXA(More)
OBJECTIVES Distal esophageal (Schatzki's) rings are a frequent cause of dysphagia. Bougienage is generally effective, but relapses are common. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of long-term antisecretory therapy on the relapse rate of lower esophageal rings after successful bougienage with Savary dilators. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study was(More)
Multiple myeloma is a haematologic malignancy caused by clonal expansion of malignant plasma cells and associated with bone disease and hypercalcaemia. Myeloma cells are in close proximity to sites of active bone resorption and the interactions between those cells, osteoblasts and osteoclasts, are crucial not only for the bone distraction but for the(More)
Intramural duodenal hematoma is a rare complication of endoscopic biopsy. It is usually seen in children with growth failure and in patients with bleeding disorders or who are anticoagulated.

BACKGROUND Hydroxyurea is a cytotoxic and myelosuppressive drug that has been used during recent years in the treatment of children with severe sickle cell disease. Nevertheless, questions remain regarding its role in young patients with no severe course, like sickle/beta-thalassemia (S/b-thal) patients often present. The aim of the present study was to(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of gallstone disease (GD) and laparoscopic cholecystectomy on gastric electrical activity of slow waves, which was recorded via transcutaneous electrogastrography (EGG). METHODS Twenty-one consecutive patients (M/F: 12/9, 52.7 +/- 15 years old) with GD and no previous history of abdominal(More)
