From February to November 1981 the diagnostic relevance of ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was compared prospectively in 75 patients with suspected pancreatic disease. Final diagnosis was confirmed by autopsy, surgery, clinical course, and further laboratory data. Thus it was possible to(More)
Between March 1990 and August 1993, eleven stenoses were dilated to a diameter of 25 mm by balloon catheter introduced through a coloscope in ten of 25 patients with Crohn's disease that had caused drug-resistant obstructions (five men, five women: mean age 45 [22-61] years). These patients had inactive Crohn's disease with 2-8 cm long stenoses in the(More)

Digestive function of 24 patients with Billroth (BII) subtotal gastrectomy and gastrojejunostomy was investigated using an oral pancreatic function test with fluorescein-dilaurate as substrate (FDL-test). The FDL-test after Bll subtotal gastrectomy revealed maldigestion in 75% of the patients. The mean FDL-ratio (normal when higher than 30%) was 21.6 +/-(More)
400 unselected liver biopsies were stained with aldehyde-thionin (AT) and examined for ground-glass hepatocytes (GGH). 1) AT-positive GGH were found in about half of all HBSAg-positive patients but were never seen in HBSAg-negative patients. 2) AT-positive GGH were observed in healthy HBSAg carriers and in all forms of chronic hepatitis but never in acute(More)
We report the case of a female patient who had severe thrombotic complications in peripheral (V. jugularis, subclavia, brachialis, poplitea) and visceral (portal and splenic) veins 4 years after the first diagnosis of severe ulcerative pancolitis.
