OBJECTIVE To investigate the metabolic effects of open Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) on pancreatic endocrine reserve in overweight/obese Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes during postoperative year 1. METHODS Retrospective analysis comparing pre- and postoperative results of oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT) with determinations of insulin and(More)
Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) is associated with chronic inflammatory activity and disrupted insulin signaling, leading to insulin resistance (IR). The present study investigated the benefits of neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) on IR in a rat NIDDM model. Goto-Kakizaki rats fed a high-fat, high-glucose diet to induce signs of NIDDM(More)
We hypothesized that postoperative sedation with dexmedetomidine/fentanyl would be effective in infants and neonates with congenital heart disease and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Children who were <36 months of age, had congenital heart disease with PAH, and had been treated at our hospital between October 2011 and April 2013 (n = 187) were(More)
GOALS To demonstrate the relationship between abdominal paracentesis drainage (APD) and infectious complications in moderately severe acute pancreatitis (MSAP) or severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) patients. BACKGROUND The effectiveness of APD for SAP was demonstrated in our previous study. However, the relationship between APD and infectious complications(More)

For each patient 1 tablet of Prostat (70 mg P5 + 4 mg EA10) was orally administered twice a day. RESULTS Subjective symptoms of the patients were significantly(More)
BACKGROUND There is not any stable, repeatable, and clinically simulated animal model of isolated pancreatic trauma been established as yet. The aim of our study is to establish a small animal model that mimics the pathophysiology of isolated pancreatic blast trauma and to study the features of traumatic condition in the model. METHODS Rats were divided(More)
