The observations that hyperlipidemia is an early event in acute pancreatitis, serum lipid values decrease during the acute phase of the disease, and high serum lipid levels are not always associated to pancreatic necrosis suggest that HL is a preexistent metabolic abnormality with respect to AP may play a role in aggravating AP.
The quality of gastroenterological reports based on free text dictation: an evaluation in endoscopy and ultrasonography.
The majority of physicians consider the use of free dictation for medical reports to be essential in many domains. One of the main criticisms of structured data entry is the possible lack of…
Structured reporting of medical findings: evaluation of a system in gastroenterology.
A system using structured reporting of findings was developed for the preparation of medical reports and for clinical documentation purposes in upper abdominal sonography and evaluated, confirming the hypothesis that, for the description of results of a technical examination, structured data reporting is a viable alternative to free-text dictation.

The stimulatory effect of the sympathetic nerves on glucose uptake in subcutaneous adipose tissue appears to be mediated by the alpha1-adrenoceptor, and in obese subjects with insulin resistance, thealpha1- adrenergic receptor may provide an important alternative pathway for glucose uptake.

It is shown that a 5-d treatment of dexfenfluramine decreases blood pressure and reduces heart rate in obese postmenopausal women, and the data suggest that these effects are results of the direct action ofdexfen fluramine.
Gastrointestinal Motility in Chronic Pancreatitis
Motility disorders of the gastrointestinal tract could also contribute to the abdominal discomfort, since in other clinical conditions disorders such as antral hypomotility were found to be related to dyspeptic symptoms.

Proximal gastric motility functions are normal in severe obesity.
It is concluded that the proximal gastric motility, including perception and accommodation in response to intragastric distension, is not impaired in severe obesity.
