BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which pepsin and trypsin concentrations in feeding tube aspirates, in addition to pH, contribute to predicting feeding tube position. METHODS Aspirates from 742 feeding tubes (nasogastric, n = 343; nasointestinal, n = 399) were tested for pH and enzyme concentrations. Also tested were(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare and their long-term outcome is difficult to predict, as there are insufficient data which allow accurate characterization of the malignant variant. Thus the aim of this study was to describe the outcome and possible determinants of malignant behavior of SFTPs. METHODS Data were collected(More)
Les tumeurs neuroendocrines bien différenciées de l’estomac sont principalement fundiques. Les deux situations fréquentes sont: 1/ les tumeurs multiples associées à une gastrite chronique fundique auto-immune (maladie de Biermer) (type 1) où l’hypergastrinémie réactionnelle est responsable d’une hyperplasie des cellules endocrines fundiques puis du(More)
BACKGROUND Currently available bedside methods for determining feeding tube placement often provide inconclusive results. Therefore, additional data are needed to assist nurses in making decisions regarding tube location. OBJECTIVES To describe the usual concentration of bilirubin in aspirates from newly inserted feeding tubes and to determine the extent(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare neoplasia of the chest. A subset of SFTP follows a malignant course, sometimes several years after complete resection. Traditional scoring systems based on clinical and histological features are poor predictors of biological behavior. This study aimed to investigate tumor-associated miRNAs(More)
