Relationship between pancreatic exocrine function and ductal morphology in chronic pancreatitis.
TLDR
The likely explanation for this result is that chronic pancreatitis is a patchy process in which the acini and ducts are variably affected, and destruction of parenchyma and obstruction to drainage of secretions contribute in varying proportions to the decrease in exocrine function. Expand

RELATIVE EFFICIENCY AND PREDICTIVE VALUE OF ULTRASONOGRAPHY AND ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE PANCREATOGRAPHY IN DIAGNOSIS OF PANCREATIC DISEASE
TLDR
The diagnostic value of ultrasound scanning (USS) and of endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERP) was assessed in patients referred with known or suspected pancreatic disease; overall specificity was 90% for USS and 65% for ERP, while sensitivity for USS ultrasound was 55% and 80% forERP. Expand
Surgical management of intracranial Hodgkin's disease.
TLDR
The following case is of interest in that extirpation of an intracranial Hodgkin's granuloma was performed, and was the only lesion of this type seen at this hospital during the past 30 years, although several examples of spinal cord compression in Hodgkin’s disease have been encountered. Expand
Sclerosing-cholangitis-like changes in pancreatic disease.
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of endoscopic cholangiograms in 66 patients with pancreatic disease found sclerosing-cholangitis-like changes in 83% of cases and the possible significance of these changes are discussed. Expand
