A 6-wk-old male infant became unresponsive after an uneventful general anesthetic for hernia repair. His symptoms were consistent with central anticholinergic syndrome. He appeared to awaken after treatment with IV physostigmine in a dose of 0.04 mg/kg. Because of the recurrence of sedation, a second physostigmine infusion was administered, which again led(More)
PURPOSE To clarify whether in nonocclusive mesenterial disease the extent of damage to the intestinal wall can be limited by local intraarterial application of Captopril. METHOD Producing shock by means of pericardial tamponade in 18 piglets. Examination of three groups: Intraarterial application of Captopril at the beginning of the shock phase (n = 6) or(More)
1 In segments of human right atrial appendages and pulmonary arteries preincubated with [3H]-noradrenaline and superfused with physiological salt solution containing desipramine and corticosterone, the involvement of imidazoline receptors in the modulation of [3H]-noradrenaline release was investigated. 2 In human atrial appendages, the guanidines aganodine(More)
We studied two families with five affected members suffering from ptosis and slowly progressive limb-girdle muscle weakness. All patients had abnormal decremental response on low-frequency nerve stimulation, but there were no repetitive responses to single stimuli. The patients improved on anti-acetylcholinesterase drugs. Intercostal muscle was obtained for(More)
1. Spirally cut strips of the human saphenous vein and pulmonary artery were used to determine the pharmacological properties of the presynaptic prostanoid receptors involved in the modulation of sympathetic [3H]-noradrenaline release. Strips preincubated with [3H]-noradenaline were superfused with physiological salt solution containing inhibitors of(More)
Duplications of the gastrointestinal tract are congenital anomalies seen in about 0.2% of all children. These include the rare gastric duplications. Latter diagnosis is usually made in the first months after birth on recurrent vomiting by detection of an abdominal tumor. The most important imaging modality is ultrasonography. The case of a prematurely born(More)
We present the results of a study based on an animal model concurring whether captopril can improve microcirculation in the small intestine in nonocclusive mesenteric ischemia dependent on when therapy is begun. Cardiogenic shock was produced by pericardial tamponade with starch solution. The flow in the carotid artery could be reduced to 43% of the(More)
Visceral aneurysms are very rare (0.1% in autopsy-statistics). In our own review of literature we have found only 9 described cases of an aneurysm of the gastroepiploic artery. In the presented case an aneurysm was found when the patient developed an acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Due to the high risk of rupture (20% of all visceral aneurysms),(More)
In recent years the implantation of self-expanding metal-stents has been recommended as a palliative kind of therapy for dysphagia caused by esophageal carcinoma. The metal-stent has a high flexibility, so that it can fit according to the preformed angel of the esophagocardial transition and does not cause a feeling of pressure when placed in the cervical(More)
