This clinical study included 219 (Child A/B) consecutive variceal bleeders. Electively 123 had distal splenorenal shunt (DSRS) and 96 had splenectomy with gastroesophageal devascularization (S&GD). Liver pathology was documented in 73% of patients, with schistosomal fibrosis in 41% and nonalcoholic cirrhosis or mixed pattern (fibrosis and cirrhosis) in 59%.(More)
The distal splenorenal shunt (DSRS) was performed in 125 consecutive variceal bleeders. To date, no patients have been lost to follow-up (mean of 79 +/- 20 months). Liver pathology was documented in 85 patients: 45 patients had schistosomal hepatic fibrosis, 17 had nonalcoholic cirrhosis, and 23 had mixed pattern (hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis). The(More)
The distal splenorenal shunt was performed in 60 patients with schistosomal hepatic fibrosis in whom no evidence of cirrhosis was documented by preoperative needle and operative wedge biopsy. No patients have been lost to follow-up with a median of 37 months (range: 17-86). The results showed low operative mortality (1.7%), high patency rate (92.5%), and(More)
Twenty patients with bladder carcinoma (14 transitional cell carcinoma and six squamous cell carcinoma) and ten controls of (four with bilharzial lesions, three without and three with metaplasia and dysplasia) were subjected to immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical studies. Bladder and urine samples examination were carried out with the high molecular(More)
BACKGROUND Variceal hemorrhage is an added major threat to survival in patients with chronic active liver disease (CALD). The hemodynamic consequences of surgical therapy and the continued activity of the underlying liver disease both contribute to the hepatic dysfunction and determine patient survival. METHODS Two hundred and seventy two consecutive(More)
Fifty cases of proven human cutaneous leishmaniasis were histopathologically studied. In twenty biopsies the picture was vascular alternations with or without fibrinoid necrosis and fibrin thrombi in both arteries and veins within the area of the inflammation in the lesions. Hyalinosis and intimal proliferation were also seen. On the other hand,(More)
Within a 40-month period ending in June 1992, we used the transseptal approach in performing mitral valve surgery on 18 patients. The patients selected had 1 or more of the following indications: small left atrium; adhesions from previous cardiac surgery or rheumatic activity; large, organized left atrial thrombus: the need for concomitant tricuspid valve(More)
Delta hepatitis is a relatively common in Egypt especially in patients with chronic liver disease. Delta virus infection is associated with a high frequency of hepatic decompensation and it seems to impose additional burden on liver function. It does not seem to be more prevalent in particular type of cirrhosis but the CAH pathology was found to be mostly(More)
