BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of anorectal dysfunction, which occurs frequently in patients with diabetes mellitus, is poorly defined. Recent studies indicate that changes in the blood glucose concentration have a major reversible effect on gastrointestinal motor function. AIMS To determine the effects of physiological changes in blood glucose and(More)
UNLABELLED Ulcerative colitis (UC) is uncommon in Thailand. Few reports have been published and confirmation of the diagnosis was difficult. To make a firm diagnosis of UC in Thailand, long-term follow-up and demonstration of chronic and relapsing clinical courses should help to confirm the existence of UC in Thailand. OBJECTIVE To review the demographic(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become the treatment of choice for patients with symptomatic cholelithiasis. About 8-15 per cent of patients with symptomatic gallstones may bear associated common bile duct (CBD) stones, The management of choledocholithiasis in the laparoscopic era remain debatable. Although pre-operative endoscopic(More)
Acute changes in the blood glucose concentrationaffect the intensity of gastrointestinal sensations. Theaim of this study was to examine the effects ofhyperglycemia on cortical potentials evoked byesophageal distension. In 16 healthy volunteers, a balloonwas positioned in the lower esophagus. A series of 50distensions was performed at both a lower(More)
Vanishing bile duct syndrome (VBDS) is a rare disorder and requires a liver biopsy for a diagnosis. The condition has not been reported in children with toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). The etiology of VBDS in our patient with TEN is most likely from drug hypersensitivity. A high index of suspicion will prompt clinicians to start more specific(More)
104 duodenal ulcer patients were classified into non-smokers (76) and smokers (28). Their age range was between 14-72 years. They were randomly treated with cimetidine (28 non-smokers and 8 smokers), colloidal bismuth (27 non-smokers and 10 smokers) and sucralfate (21 non-smokers and 10 smokers). Follow-up endoscopic examination at 4, 6 and 8 weeks showed(More)
BACKGROUND Acute hyperglycaemia affects the perception of sensations arising from the gastrointestinal tract. The mechanisms responsible for this effect are unknown. Recordings of cerebral evoked potentials (EPs) can be used to assess the integrity of visceral afferent pathways. Our aim was to determine whether hyperglycaemia affects EPs elicited by rectal(More)
We report elevated serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in a case of malignant carcinoid tumor of the appendix with liver and lung metastasis. A 55-year-old Thai man was found to have multiple nodules in the liver by ultrasonography. Serum CEA was 7,387.9 ng/mL (normal 0-4.1 ng/mL) leading to a clinical impression of colonic carcinoma with liver metastasis.(More)
