It is often difficult to assess small bowel recovery in adults with coeliac disease on a gluten-free diet (GFD). This prospective study compares changes in intestinal permeability with changes in intestinal biopsy at various intervals after commencing a GFD. Intestinal permeability was measured by lactulose/rhamnose absorption from 1 week to 24 months after… (More)
Intestinal pseudo-obstruction is a rare paraneoplastic manifestation of small-cell carcinoma of the lung. This report documents a further case associated with neuronal degeneration of enteric neural plexuses and a high serum titre of immunoglobulin G (IgG) type 1 anti-neuronal nuclear antibodies (ANNA-1).
A case, in which tubal conservation in an ectopic pregnancy resulted in the birth of a living infant, is described. It is hoped that tubal conservation in ectopic pregnancies, which was previously thought to be unwise, will be considered in future.
Logistic regression and Gaussian mixture model (GMM) classifiers have been trained to estimate the probability of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients based upon the concentrations of a panel of cardiac markers. The panel consists of two new markers, fatty acid binding protein (FABP) and glycogen phosphorylase BB (GPBB), in addition to the… (More)
Of three patients who underwent microsurgical repair of Fallopian tubes after tubal sterilization, two achieved intrauterine pregnancies.
A new method of examining the scrotum by ultrasound with an automated water-path scanner is described. This method allows immobility of the scrotum in a more acceptable and painless way than in contact scanning methods. Panoramic scans of the entire scrotum and precision tomographic plane placement are advantages over conventional techniques. A description… (More)
Ultrasound is a reliable and safe method for the evaluation of scrotal anatomy. The usual method of ultrasonic examination has been contact scanning with a conventional articulated arm scanner. We herein report our experience in 108 cases using an ultrasonic technique which provides panoramic scans of the entire scrotum and precision tomographic plane… (More)
