Patients: Twelve children with inflammatory bowel disease, aged 12.3 years were studied during the active phase and in remission. In 6(More)
IPMTP is a pancreatic duct disease that can better be diagnosed due to advances in imaging techniques. This probably explains the recent increased frequency of this disease. Enlargement of the main pancreatic duct and/or branch ducts is a typical feature. CT and MRI with MRCP are useful for diagnosis. Features of malignant degeneration are better known.(More)
OBJECTIVE This retrospective study evaluated the incidence of airway complications in neurological patients following translaryngeal intubation, tracheostomy, or both. DESIGN The medical records of 315 consecutive patients (200 with traumatic brain injuries, 31 traumatic tetraplegics, and 84 with other neurological disorders) were reviewed. The type of(More)
OBJECTIVE To validate ultrasonographic quantification and characterization criteria for aneurysms of the abdominal aorta (AAA) by comparing computed tomography data and surgical findings in order to standardize diagnosis and follow-up of AAA. PATIENTS AND METHODS A multicentric prospective study included 80 patients with AAA (January to August 1996).(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the pancreas has undergone a major change because it can provide noninvasive images of the pancreatic ducts and the parenchyma. MR cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) enables detection of anatomic variants such as pancreas divisum. Although contrast material-enhanced CT is still considered the gold standard in acute(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We sought to identify MRI factors associated with BBB changes at the acute stage of ischemic stroke. METHODS We analyzed BBB changes on admission and within 3 hours after the first scan. BBB changes was defined as the presence of leptomeningeal and parenchymal contrast enhancement on T1-weighted imaging. Tmax , CBV, and DWI lesion(More)
Small intestinal permeability to horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was assessed in jejunal biopsies of malnourished children. Clinical examination, intestinal function (D-Xylose test), and the histological appearance of the mucosa were assessed in 14 children during the malnutrition phase and in eight children after 3 months of nutritional rehabilitation.(More)
Removal of the lens is often performed during pars plana vitrectomy for complications of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, but correction of aphakia often remains unsatisfactory. Some authors have reported posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation during pars plana vitrectomy in diabetic patients who presented with coexisting cataract and(More)
