Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has proved useful in the evaluation of perianal and perirectal lesions resulting from Crohn disease. On T1-weighted MR images, sinus tracts and fistulas are hypointense due to their fluid content; on T2-weighted images, their signal intensity depends on their fluid content and the degree of surrounding fibrosis.

Phaeochromocytoma is rare and usually presents as paroxysmal or sustained hypertension; none the less, it can also cause severe acute pulmonary oedema in normotensive individuals. Six patients with phaeochromocytoma presenting in Cornwall and West Devon between 1982 and 1986 are described. Five of them died of pulmonary oedema within 24 hours of the onset(More)
AIM To determine whether the use of CO2 rather than air insufflation results in less pain and/or distension in patients undergoing small bowel meal (SBM) and pneumocolon (PC). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred patients for SBM and PC were randomized to receive either air or carbon dioxide (CO2) as the insufflating gas. Both the patient and radiologist(More)

A 54-year-old woman with unoperated patent ductus arteriosus developed fatal cardiac tamponade due to a dissecting aneurysm of the pulmonary artery causing haemopericardium. Histology of the pulmonary artery showed the presence of cystic medial necrosis. Previous reports of this condition are reviewed and the role of pulmonary hypertension causing secondary(More)
The objective of the current study was to examine the effect of pasteurization of waste milk, used to feed dairy calves, on the bacterial diversity of their lower gut. Using 16S rDNA bacterial tag-encoded FLX amplicon pyrosequencing, fecal samples from dairy calves, ages 1 wk to 6 mo old and fed either pasteurized or nonpasteurized waste milk, were analyzed(More)
