Patients with chronic renal failure who were undergoing dialysis were recently shown to have a low prevalence of duodenal Helicobacter (Campylobacter) pylori colonisation in spite of a high incidence of gastric metaplasia. The prevalence of the organism in the gastric antrum of 50 similar patients was estimated and compared with that in a control group(More)
Seventeen patients with chronic obscure gastrointestinal bleeding presenting over a 5-year period are described. While representing only 6 per cent of the total number of admissions due to gastrointestinal haemorrhage they required a disproportionate amount of medical attention, including 67 admissions, 73 radiological and 56 endoscopic procedures and(More)
Biopsies from 60 patients with dyspepsia and endoscopically abnormal first part of duodenum were examined. The main endoscopic findings were duodenitis (35 cases), chronic ulceration (eight) and abnormal mucosal patterns (17). The latter included mucosal atrophy, thickening, irregularity, nodularity and polypoid formation. The main histological findings(More)
Two patients with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction are reported, one of whom had definite systemic sclerosis while the other had certain manifestations of the disease. Biopsies of the small intestine revealed increased collagen and elastic fibres in the muscularis propria and subserosa in each case, while ganglion cells were normal. In addition, one(More)
The incidence and relationship of intestinal metaplasia of the gastric antrum and gastric metaplasia of the first part of the duodenum were studied in endoscopic biopsies from 120 patients with nonulcer dyspepsia. Intestinal metaplasia was present in 29% of antral biopsies and gastric metaplasia in 39% of duodenal biopsies, with 9% of patients having both.(More)
