The aim of the present study was to investigate the exocrine pancreatic function after recovery from necrotizing pancreatitis. The exocrine function was analysed in 53 patients who had recovered from their first attack of necrotizing pancreatitis. In a group of 23 patients (Group A), three follow-up studies were performed between four weeks and 12 months(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present study was to investigate prospectively the value of manometry, non-invasive techniques and endoscopic sphincterotomy in biliary type II and III patients with suspected sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. METHODS All patients (n = 31) had undergone a cholecystectomy from 1 to 45 years before entry into the study, and had a(More)
In 240 patients with predefined indications, the validity of ultrasound imaging as a primary diagnostic procedure was examined prospectively. Ultrasonography revealed normal intestinal findings in 150 patients and pathological lesions in 90 subjects. All patients underwent subsequent endoscopic, radiological, or surgical examination. In 7 patients with(More)
Oral lesions, varying in nature and location, appear to be one of the common extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease. In particular, oral involvement preceding intestinal disease may lead to the diagnosis of Crohn's disease. The present case report of a 17-year-old male patient describes a very rare nonintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease(More)
A comparative analysis of pancreatic morphology and exocrine function was performed prospectively in 48 patients. All patients had transabdominal ultrasound, computed tomography, endoscopic retrograde pancreatography, and a secretin-caerulein test. Classification of ultrasound, computed tomography, and pancreatogram findings was based on the Cambridge(More)
Pancreatic secretion and plasma cholecystokinin (CCK) and secretin levels were measured in 10 healthy volunteers after application of a serine protease inhibitor (camostate) to study the mechanism of feedback regulation. Camostate produced a strong inhibition of trypsin and chymotrypsin activity in duodenal juice for 1 h. This was accompanied by an increase(More)
The effect of atropine on prestimulatory and Lundh-meal-stimulated pancreatic secretion and on plasma cholecystokinin (CCK) levels has been studied in 20 human volunteers. Prestimulatory secretion was lowered by infusion of atropine. From 10 to 30 min after ingestion of the Lundh meal, atropine had no effect on secretion. From 30 to 120 min, the stimulated(More)
The present study was performed to compare pain-related oesophageal motility, gastro-oesophageal reflux and ST-segment deviations in patients with intermittent chest pain and normal or pathological coronary angiography. Thirty patients (11 males, 19 females; mean age 54.8 years) with normal and 15 patients (12 males, 3 females; mean age 66.7 years) with(More)
Besides peptic ulcers, erosions, esophageal varices, tumors and non-variceal esophageal lesions, vascular abnormalities lead to an upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage in 1-5% of cases. Among 581 emergency esophagogastro-duodenoscopies for acute gastrointestinal bleeding performed in our institution between 1987 and 1989, an esophageal visible vessel was found(More)
In the present study pancreatic secretion and plasma cholecystokinin (CCK) levels were analyzed in eight volunteers after daily ingestion of the serine protease inhibitor camostate for 5 days. This was compared with the effect of a single intraduodenal dose of camostate. Prolonged administration of camostate for 5 days had no effect on basal and stimulated(More)
