  • surface of the ileal
  • They form a biofilm on the surface of the ileal mucosa owing to abnormal expression of the specific host receptor CEACAM6 that recognizes the type 1 pili variant expressed by CD-associated E. coli bacteria , . (plos.org)
  • The preliminary finding that focal neutrophil infiltration of the surface of the ileal villi represents an early morphological marker of CD is very interesting and certainly warrants further investigation. (springer.com)
  • partial ileal b
  • The use of high doses of statins or even unusual procedures (apheresis, partial ileal bypass surgery, liver transplantation, gene therapy), or both, is necessary for increasing survival and improving quality of life, because a reduction in cholesterol levels is essential for stabilizing the coronary artery disease and reducing xanthomas. (scielo.br)
  • We report our experience with 3 patients with xanthomatous familial hypercholesterolemia and coronary artery disease, who underwent partial ileal bypass surgery. (scielo.br)
  • Considering the severity of the disease and the therapeutic difficulties (mainly socioeconomic) in treating it, we report our experience in treating this disease using partial ileal bypass surgery. (scielo.br)
  • Effect of partial ileal bypass surgery on mortality and morbidity from coronary heart disease in patients with hypercholesterolemia. (acpjc.org)
  • Before partial ileal bypass surgery can, however, be added to the ever-growing array of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches to the prevention and management of coronary heart disease, additional questions must be answered. (acpjc.org)
  • biopsies
  • Courville EL, Siegel CA, Vay T, Wilcox AR, Suriawinata AA, Srivastava A (2009) Isolated asymptomatic ileitis does not progress to overt Crohn disease on long-term follow-up despite features of chronicity in ileal biopsies. (springer.com)
  • Patients
  • In homozygous patients, LDL-cholesterol levels range from 500 to 1000mg/dL and coronary artery disease is precocious, usually manifesting itself between the 2nd and 3rd decades of life. (scielo.br)
  • In patients with ileal CD we observed decreased levels of meprins, in particular that of meprin β. (plos.org)
  • To determine whether partial ileal bypass improves cholesterol profiles and decreases overall mortality and morbidity caused by coronary heart disease in patients surviving a first myocardial infarction compared with diet instruction only. (acpjc.org)
  • Patients were assigned to diet instruction only ( n = 417) or to diet instruction plus partial ileal bypass (n = 421). (acpjc.org)
  • 82 patients (20%) in the surgery group had a fatal or nonfatal coronary heart disease (CHD) event compared with 125 patients (30%) in the control group. (acpjc.org)
  • Compared with diet alone, partial ileal bypass plus diet instruction induced sustained changes in cholesterol and reduced the morbidity associated with coronary artery disease in patients surviving a single myocardial infarction. (acpjc.org)
  • These are seen in patients with chronic haemolysis - e.g. hereditary spherocytosis and sickle cell disease. (brainscape.com)
  • For example, pain is common in patients with chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer and Crohn disease , but it is absent in many patients with coeliac disease or postgastrectomy malabsorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, there is increasing epidemiologic evidence that more patients with coeliac disease present with anemia and osteopenia in the absence of significant classic gastrointestinal symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a multivariate analysis 1 of more than 900 patients, researchers identified a family history of cholecystectomy in a first-degree relative and obesity (defined as body mass index [BMI] greater than 30 kg per m 2 ) as strong risk factors for symptomatic gallstone disease with a relative risk of 2.2 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.5 to 3.0) and 3.7 (95% CI, 2.3 to 5.3), respectively. (aafp.org)
  • We saw clinical benefit in patients with pouch disease that had previously failed to respond to standard antibiotic, steroid, or immunosuppressive therapies. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • bypass
  • The main question concerns the cost-benefit ratio of partial ileal bypass compared with those of other, newer treatments, including lipid-lowering medications. (acpjc.org)
  • The cost-benefit question is particularly important considering the many adverse effects of partial ileal bypass including disturbances of gastrointestinal function, gallstones, and kidney stones. (acpjc.org)
  • coronary artery
  • Their follow-up over the years (approximately 8 years) showed a mean 30% reduction in total cholesterol, with a significant reduction in the xanthomas and stabilization of the coronary artery disease. (scielo.br)
  • significantly
  • Once a patient is diagnosed, having cholecystectomy early in the course of the disease can significantly reduce the hospital stay. (aafp.org)
  • early
  • The coronary atherosclerotic disease appears early, in homozygous individuals usually between the 1st and the 2nd decades of life and in heterozygous individuals between the 4th and the 5th decades of life. (scielo.br)
