Patients with oesophageal varices frequently present with gastrointestinal haemorrhage but bleeding from varices at other sites is rare. We present a patient with hepatitis C-induced cirrhosis and partial portal vein occlusion who developed spontaneous haemorrhage from anterior abdominal wall varices into the rectus abdominus muscle and peritoneal cavity.
1. The effects of change from a high to low sodium diet upon renal sodium and water excretion and hormone responses were studied in patients with dissociated sympathetic control (DS, tetraplegic) and controls with sympathetic control largely intact (IS, paraplegic). 2. Total and fractional urinary sodium excretion fell in response to sodium restriction in(More)
Acetylcholinesterase is released in a calcium-dependent manner when afferents of the cerebellar cortex are stimulated. Since cholinergic transmission is probably insignificant in the cerebellar cortex, the esterase itself might serve as a transmitter or modulator. Therefore, the effect of acetylcholinesterase in the cerebellum was investigated in slices of(More)
Our study aimed to assess the diagnostic utility of magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) compared to capsule endoscopy (CE) for the detection of small bowel polyps in patients with Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (PJS); with findings verified by balloon enteroscopy (BE). Adult patients were prospectively recruited across two tertiary centres and underwent MRE(More)
Acute arterial injury at the time of total knee replacement (TKR) is a rare occurrence. We questioned whether TKR could exacerbate preexisting atherosclerotic disease causing chronic limb ischemia. Thirty-three patients undergoing unilateral TKR had the peripheral arterial supply of both legs assessed 2 weeks before and 6 weeks after the operation using(More)
Using digital X-ray radiogrammetry (DXR) on hand radiographs from a large population-based study, 1,370 postmenopausal women were evaluated in a prospective fashion; fracture occurrence was compared with DXR measurements of historic radiographs. Further, the aim of the study was to evaluate factors affecting DXR bone mineral density (BMD) in this cohort.(More)
