Citrate, calcium and protein have been estimated in pure pancreatic juice after a secretin and a CCK injection in 4 patients presenting with alcoholic calcified pancreatitis (ACP), 10 controls without evidence of pancreatic disease, drinking more than 130 g alcohol/day, and 10 controls without evidence of pancreatic disease, drinking less than 20 g(More)
Cardiac toxicity of angiographic contrast medium has been documented at the cellular level by using the methods of micro-electrode electrophysiology. Canine Purkinje fibers exposed to contrast medium exhibit a "slow response." The increased automaticity and slowed conduction inherent in this "slow response" may cause the serious arrhythmias and other(More)
In a previous study, we found that pancreatic stones could be dissolved in vitro by a citrate solution. We then decided to look for the possible secretion of citrate into the pancreatic juice, and to find a means of increasing it. Pancreatic juice secretion was collected in Thomas fistula dogs submitted to four protocols: basal conditions, secretin(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated an increase of total calcium secretion in the duodenal juice of healthy subjects after cholecystokinin (CCK) administration superimposed on a continuous secretion infusion. In order to get more detailed information on the physiology of calcium secretion and its dependance on hormonal stimulation, ionized and total calcium(More)
Previous studies have shown increased secretion of total calcium in the duodenal juice of patients with chronic alcoholic pancreatitis compared with healthy subjects. In order to get more detailed information on calcium secretion and pancreatic stone formation in chronic alcoholic pancreatitis, ionised and total calcium concentrations were determined in the(More)
