BACKGROUND & AIMS Management of patients with dysphagia, regurgitation, and related symptoms after antireflux surgery is challenging. This prospective, case-control study tested the hypothesis that compared with standard high-resolution manometry (HRM) with single water swallows (SWS), adding multiple water swallows (MWS) and a solid test meal increases… (More)
Sister Mary Joseph's nodule is an important physical sign. It usually represents umbilical metastasis of intra abdominal malignancy. Its association with intra abdominal desmoplastic small round cell tumour is extremely rare. We describe a rare case of sister Mary Joseph's nodule associated with desmoplastic small round cell tumour. We conclude that… (More)
A 58-year-old lady with no significant past medical history was admitted with a 3-week history of severe headache and persistent vomiting. Physical examination was unremarkable. Initial investigations including full blood count, renal function, C-reactive protein and chest X-ray were unremarkable. CT scan of the head and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure… (More)
Two cases are reported of syrinx associated with an intramedullary metastasis. The first presented with hyperaesthesia in the right arm and bilateral pyramidal leg weakness, the second with a partial right sided Brown Sequard syndrome with a sensory level at D6. A possible pathological mechanism for the development of such syrinxes is discussed.

Pain was aggravated by deep breathing and movements. He had no significant past medical history apart from cholecystectomy 17 years ago. He had a 20-pack per year history of cigarette smoking.

A 76-year-old man developed a hemoperitoneum after ERCP for choledocholithiasis. He underwent a laparotomy and splenectomy for a capsular tear at the splenic hilum, a rare complication of ERCP. "Bowing" of the endoscope with torsion on the greater curvature of the stomach may lead to shear forces causing splenic injury.
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the colon is a rare tumor that accounts for 0.1%-0.2% of colonic malignancies. However, pure SCC of the cecum is extremely rare. Although SCC of the colon is a rare complication of idiopathic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), SCC of the cecum in the context of IBD has not been previously reported in the English literature.… (More)
Background: Obesity induces oxidative stress and inflammation, which may lead to arterial stiffness and hypertension. The relationship of white blood cell count (WBC) and anthropometric indices with arterial stiffness index (ASI) and blood pressure was evaluated in this study. Methods: Thirty male subjects aged between 35-55 years were selected in each of… (More)
