Anismus is a significant cause of chronic constipation. This study came to revive the results of BFB training and BTX-A injection in the treatment of anismus patients. Forty-eight patients with anismus (33 women; mean age 39.6 ± 15.9) were included in this study. All patients fulfilled Rome II criteria for functional constipation. All patients underwent(More)
The rate of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is increasing worldwide including Egypt. Non-B non-C HCC was reported in some countries. We aimed to investigate P53 antibodies and alpha-fetoprotein in patients with non-B non-C HCC in our region. In a case series study, included 281 patients with HCC and 20 patients with liver cirrhosis of matched age, sex and(More)
This study was initiated to determine the effects of ozone (O3) on sheep airway blood flow. Twenty-three nasally intubated sheep were exposed to filtered air (n = 5), 1 ppm O3 (n = 4), 2 ppm O3 (n = 5), 3 ppm O3 (n = 5), and 4 ppm O3 (n = 4) for 3 h. Bronchial artery flow (Qbr) was measured using a chronically implanted 20 MHz pulsed Doppler flow probe.(More)
Screening endoscopy is recommended for early detection of esophageal varices (EVs) in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension. However, this approach is limited by its invasiveness and cost. The aim of the study was to determine if platelet count can predict the presence of EVs, especially large (grade III, IV) EVs in need of prophylactic therapy, in a(More)
Background: Authors of a few reports have stated that autoimmunity increases the frequency of Grave’s disease in some patients with allergic rhinitis. Also, seasonal allergic rhinitis has been reported to be more frequent in Grave’s disease but rare in painless thyroiditis. However, little is known about the relation between thyroid disease and allergic(More)
Recently, we have shown that exposure of intubated conscious sheep to 3 to 4 ppm ozone (O3) for 3 h increases bronchial blood flow (Qbr). The purpose of the present study was to assess the potential role of corticosteroids in modulating this increase. Six nasally intubated sheep were exposed to filtered room air, 3.5 ppm O3 on two separate occasions, and(More)
PURPOSE The rate of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is increasing worldwide, including in Egypt. Hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) viruses are major risks. Non-B non-C HCC was reported in some countries. We investigated non-B non-C HCC-independent risk factors and associated profiles in viral hepatitis endemic region. METHODS In a consecutive series, 281(More)
There is great variability among microsurgeons as regards the use of prophylactic anticoagulant after revascularization and this is probably due to lack of comparative data. Also, there has been much debate regarding the benefit of anti-thrombotic therapies versus the risk of complications such as systemic bleeding and hematoma formation. To evaluate the(More)
Arthroscopic-assisted surgery of the trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint has been described before for the treatment of TMC joint arthritis including, debridement, partial or total trapezectomy, and interpositional arthroplasty, but its use for fusion is not reported. TMC joint arthroscopy is a novel technique for arthrodesis which aims to maintain joint(More)
The ellipsometric function p of a film-substrate system is studied as the film thickness d is kept constant and the angle of incidence phi is changed. The generated constant-thickness contours (CTCs) are characterized by an introduced mathematical behavior indicator that represents a group of CTCs. The behavior of each group is developed and studied in the(More)
