Anatomical Analysis of Computed Tomography Images for Determining the Optimal Oblique Fluoroscope Angle for Percutaneous Coeliac Plexus Block

This retrospective study used abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan images to determine the optimal safe oblique angle for fluoroscopy in fluoroscope-assisted coeliac plexus block (CPB). Abdominal CT scans from 131 patients were included in the study: 42 patients with cancer of the pancreas head, 45 with cancer of the pancreas body and tail and 44 with chronic pancreatitis. The ...

Primary Small-bowel Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma: A Study of Clinical Features, Pathology, Management and Prognosis

The records of 34 patients diagnosed with primary small bowel non-Hodgkin's lymphoma during a 10-year period between January 1996 and December 2005, including 27 cases for which complete follow-up records were available, were studied. Abdominal pain (70.6% of patients) was the main presenting symptom, followed by intestinal obstruction (38.2%). The most common primary site was the ...

P-wave Dispersion is Increased in Pregnancy Due to Shortening of Minimum Duration of P: Does This Have Clinical Significance?

Most pregnant women complain of palpitation, and various kinds of arrhythmias can be observed during pregnancy. We investigated P-wave and QT dispersion during pregnancy. Healthy pregnant women (n = 162) and healthy age-matched, non-pregnant women (n = 150) were included. We performed electrocardiography and transthoracic echocardiography and determined serum oestradiol levels in ...

Diagnostic Value of Ischaemia-modified Albumin for Predicting Myocardial Ischaemia during Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy

During acute ischaemia the N-terminal site of albumin is altered, reducing its binding capacity; the modified protein is termed ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA). IMA is a sensitive marker of acute myocardial ischaemia but its diagnostic value in chronic angina pectoris patients is unclear. We investigated changes in blood levels of IMA during myocardial perfusion scintigraphy in ...

Recreational and Master Athletic Activity Does Not Affect Free and Total Prostate-specific Antigen Levels but Lowers the Free-to-total Prostate-specific Antigen Ratio

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and the ratio of free-to-total PSA are widely used tumour markers, but the effect of exercise on these parameters is unclear. We aimed to determine whether long-term physical training was associated with changes in serum PSA by comparing PSA concentrations in middle-aged master athletes (n = 12), recreational athletes (n = 12) and sedentary controls ...

Echocardiographical Characteristics of Healthy Young Subjects with Physiological Mitral Regurgitation

We aimed to analyse the echocardiographical characteristics of healthy subjects and determine the causal mechanism of the development of physiological mitral regurgitation (PMR). A total of 130 healthy subjects were divided into two groups according to whether or not PMR was detected. There were no statistical differences between the two groups in terms of the mean values of the ...

A Retrospective Comparison of Bovine Pericardium and Polytetrafluoroethylene Patch for Closure of Ventricular Septal Defects

This retrospective study compared the immediate post-operative (first month) and mid-term (up to 5 years post-operation) results of 22 patients with isolated ventricular septal defects who underwent surgical correction with bovine pericardium with 57 similar patients who received a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch. There were no cases of early (in the first month) mortality in ...

Comparative Bioavailability of a Microsize and Ultramicrosize Griseofulvin Formulation in Man

The bioavailability of 500 mg of a microsize formulation of griseofulvin has been compared to two new ultramicrosize griseofulvin formulations, two 165 mg tablets and a 330 mg tablet, in sixteen healthy, male, volunteers in a randomized crossover study design. Based on the griseofulvin plasma levels measured at specified times over a 48-hour period, the major bioavailability ...
