Mechanical small bowel obstruction (SBO) is rare complication of colonoscopy. We present a patient who developed SBO 24 h after surveillance colonoscopy. Four years prior to this procedure, he had undergone augmentation cecocystoplasty with continent ileal conduit. He subsequently underwent laparotomy and lysis of a band adhesion that caused extrinsic(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that the divalent cation manganese (Mn) causes PC12 cells to form neurites in the absence of NGF. Since divalent cations modulate the binding affinity and specificity of integrins, and integrin function affects neurite outgrowth, we tested the hypothesis that Mn induces neurite outgrowth through an integrin-dependent(More)

Since divalent cations modulate the binding affinity and specificity of integrins, and integrin function affects(More)
