UNLABELLED The association between portal hypertension, splenomegaly and splenic hemodynamics has not been clearly defined until these days. Therefore, hemodynamics of splenic blood vessels and the role of spleen in portal hypertension were the aim of our study. METHODS Study included 44 patients with liver cirrhosis and splenomegaly and 25 healthy(More)
Spontaneous splenorenal shunt is a rare condition, sometimes causing complications in cirrhotic patients. We report a 30-year old man with liver cirrhosis, hypertrophic caudal lobe and spontaneous splenorenal shunt. Real-time and color Doppler ultrasonography evidenced enlarged caudal lobe (130 x 95 mm) with direct veins draining into dilated inferior cava(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM In recent years mental health of patients including those with chronic liver disease (CLD), has become interesting because its disturbance leads to reduced quality of life, that is associated with worsening of clinical outcome, reduced compliance and increased mortality. The aim of the study was to determinate the frequency and severity of(More)
Fourteen patients with uraemic anaemia and having regular haemodialysis were given human recombinant erythropoietin in increasing doses, beginning with 24 U/kg thrice weekly. One patient was dropped from the study because of recurrent thrombosis of vascular access sites. In the other 13 patients, followed up for a mean of 9.1 months (range 8-11),(More)
In a collaborative study 119 cryptorchid prepubertal children with 67 unilaterally and 104 bilaterally undescended testes were treated for four weeks with intranasal LHRH 1.2 mg daily. The age range was 1 1/12 to 12 3/12 years with a median of 3 10/12 years. Complete descent was observed in 64 testes (37%) and partial descent in another 47 testes (27%).(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of our study was to evaluate and compare the differences in the parameters of portal hypertension in two groups of patients with liver cirrhosis, with and without hepatic encephalopathy (HE). METHODOLOGY 30 patients with liver cirrhosis, 17 (56.7%) of them with HE, were investigated by clinical, neurological, laboratory, endoscopic(More)
The pharmacokinetics of piretanide was studied in 10 patients with chronic renal failure. After administration of a high oral dose (12 to 192 mg) of piretanide the kinetics behaved according to an open 2-compartment model. The elimination constant in the first phase (α) ranged from 0.385 to 0.756 h−1 and in the second phase (β) from 0.079 to 0.274 h−1. The(More)
Horseshoe kidney presents a special challenge during surgery of the abdominal aorta. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morbidity and define optimal management based on clinical histories of 15 patients with horseshoe kidney who underwent surgical procedures on the abdominal aorta over a 20-year period. There were 2 female and 13 male patients with(More)
PURPOSE Conventional imaging modalities are presently recommended for the detection of liver metastases. However, the presence of liver micrometastases is a major diagnostic problem. It has been known that micrometastases could be associated with changes in the liver blood flow. METHODS We examined several parameters by color Doppler ultrasound to(More)
