Diagnostic as well as therapeutic endoscopy has a decisive role in management of early postoperative haemorrhage. Endoscopy combines easy access to the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract and application of an array of interventional tools. In near future, even the small bowel will be accessible for diagnostic and therapeutic measures due to the advent(More)
Using the 14C carbonate method of McFarlane, the synthesis rates of albumin and fibrinogen were determined in four patients with protein-losing enteropathy, in one patient during the recovery phase after severe protein malabsorption and in nine control patients. The following results were obtained: (1) The synthesis rates of albumin and fibrinogen were(More)
Synthesis rates of albumin and fibrinogen were determined in six patients with acute virus hepatitis and in nine control patients using the 14C carbonate method of McFarlane. Five patients were restudied several weeks after complete recovery. The following results were obtained. (1) The mean albumin and fibrinogen synthesis rates in the control group were(More)
OBJECTIVE Colonoscopy is the accepted gold standard for detecting colorectal adenomas, but the miss rate, especially for small and flat lesions, remains unacceptably high. The aim of this study was to determine whether enhanced mucosal contrast using pancolonic chromoendoscopy (PCC) allows higher rates of adenoma detection. METHODS In a prospective,(More)
In four patients with rheumatoid arthritis synthesis rates of fibrinogen and albumin were studied with and 14C carbonate method described by Mc Farlane and Reeve. One of the patients was studied twice with and without steroid treatment. The following results were obtained: 1. There was no correlation between plasma fibrinogen levels and fibrinogen synthesis(More)
Es wird über einen jungen Mann berichtet, der im Rahmen einer Heroinintoxikation in der tiefen Bewusstlosigkeit ein Kompartmentsyndrom der oberen Extremität erlitt. Dabei kam es zu einer passageren, ausgeprägten globalen Schädigung des Armplexus. Die sofortige operative Dekompression und eine weitere intensivmedizinische Betreuung (einschließlich(More)
BACKGROUND Mother-baby technologies, the criterion standard for cholangioscopy, have several limitations. A novel, short-access, mother-baby (SAMBA) system may improve this technique. Direct cholangioscopy (DC) was recently developed as an alternative to mother-baby cholangioscopy. OBJECTIVE Comparison of success rates with SAMBA and DC. DESIGN(More)
In five patients with chronic congestive heart failure or pulmonary insufficiency and otherwise unexplained weight loss synthesis rates of albumin and fibrinogen were studied with the 14C carbonate method described by Mc Farlane and Reeve. The following results were obtained. 1. Albumin synthesis rate was normal in 4 out of five patients. In one patient(More)
