Objective:The diagnostic significance of increased splanchnic blood flow in Crohn's disease is unclear. This prospective study was therefore undertaken to define the role of Doppler sonography in the assessment of disease activity and in the prediction of early relapse.Methods:Splanchnic flowmetry was performed in 59 patients with Crohn's disease and 20(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnostic significance of increased splanchnic blood flow in ulcerative colitis is unclear. This prospective study was therefore undertaken to define the role of Doppler sonography in the assessment of disease activity and in the prediction of early relapse. SUBJECTS/METHODS Splanchnic flowmetry was performed in 76 patients with ulcerative(More)
We evaluated the effects of a large (920 cal) liquid carbohydrate (CHO) load on the maximum exercise capacity of 18 patients with chronic airflow obstruction [forced expiratory volume at at 1 s (FEV1) = 1.27 +/- 0.48 liters; FEV1/forced vital capacity = 0.41 +/- 0.11]. Patients underwent duplicate incremental cycle ergometer exercise tests to a(More)
Limited information exists on the response to maximal exercise testing in female masters level recreational rowers. This study examined cardiorespiratory and physiologic responses to progressive, incremental exercise using a variable resistance rowing ergometer and a cycle ergometer in six experienced female masters level rowers. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2(More)
TMLR is a novel treatment for patients with coronary artery disease. It comprises the creation of transmyocardial channels thought to improve myocardial perfusion. Gated Tc-99m sestamibi scintigraphy was used to evaluate changes in myocardial perfusion after TMLR. Twelve patients underwent TMLR using a carbon dioxide laser. Sestamibi scans were carried out(More)
