We have previously demonstrated by cineradiography analysis that erythromycin (Ery) increases antral contractility and antropyloric coordination in diabetics. The aim of this study was to further characterize antro-bulbar and duodenal motility after Ery i.v. administration. Fourteen diabetic patients (mean age 61.2 years) were randomly allocated to receive(More)
The authors report the case of a 51 year-old man, without any personal or familial history of thromboembolism, presenting with abdominal pain. Portal vein thrombosis was demonstrated by ultrasonography and arteriography. The patient had neither esophageal varices or congestive gastropathy. No cause for portal vein thrombosis was detected. Type I protein C(More)
We studied antropyloroduodenal contractility in diabetics and the effect of erythromycin IV (100-500 mg) using the non invasive Boiron cineradiographic method analysis. Fourteen diabetics and 22 controls were examined. Four hours after a standard liquid-solid meal, patients drank 250 mL baryum solution. Fluorographic plates (10 x 10 cm) were taken every 2 s(More)
