BACKGROUND As with endoscopic transmural drainage of peripancreatic fluid collections, the same transluminal access can be expanded to introduce an endoscope through the gastrointestinal wall into the retroperitoneum and remove infected pancreatic necroses under direct visual control. This study reports the first large series with long-term follow-up. (More)
Seventeen male physical education students performed three types of treadmill exercise: (1) progressive exercise to exhaustion, (2) prolonged exercise of 50 min duration at the anaerobic threshold of 4 mmol . l-1 blood lactate (AE), (3) a single bout of short-term high-intensity exercise at 156% of maximal exercise capacity in the progressive test, leading(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Screening colonoscopy with polypectomy has been shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with colorectal cancer. However, there is a lack of large and systematic prospective studies of the complications of polypectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data on all snare polypectomies performed in 13 institutions (six hospitals(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of low-grade gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma by eradication of Helicobacter pylori is reported to result in complete lymphoma remission in approximately 75% of cases. The effect that cure of the infection has on the course of a primary high-grade gastric lymphoma is largely uncertain. The aim of this study was to report(More)
Early duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) are being increasingly diagnosed. Non-functional dNENs in the bulb expressing gastrin are by far the most frequent entity. In the period from 2004 to 2012, 17 cases of 16 patients with NET in the duodenal bulb were evaluated. dNENs of the ampulla of Vater and functional dNEN/gastrinoma were not included due to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Anti-Helicobacter pylori treatment with combinations of omeprazole and amoxicillin is a promising treatment option. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a daily omeprazole dose of 120 mg combined with amoxicillin would cure H. pylori infection at a rate comparable with that achieved with "triple therapy." METHODS In a(More)
Glutamate antagonists have been shown to be neuroprotective in animal models of cerebral ischemia. Global cerebral ischemia in rats leads to selective neuronal damage in the hippocampus and striatum. Following ischemia a deficit in spatial learning and memory occurs. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential neuroprotective effect of(More)
