  • pancreas
  • Since a significant number of gastrinomas are associated with MEN involving other hormone producing organs (pancreas, parathyroids, and pituitary), higher levels of C-peptide together with the presence of a gastrinoma suggest that organs besides the stomach may harbor neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The MEN1 phenotype is inherited via an autosomal-dominant pattern and is associated with neoplasms of the pituitary gland, the parathyroid gland, and the pancreas (the 3 "P"s). (wikipedia.org)
  • Serous cystadenoma of the pancreas Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is a collection of findings in individuals with gastrinoma, a tumor of the gastrin-producing cells of the pancreas. (wikipedia.org)
  • colon
  • ESD may be done in the esophagus, stomach or colon. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cellulitis (infection of the skin) around the gastrostomy site Hemorrhage Gastric ulcer either at the site of the button or on the opposite wall of the stomach ("kissing ulcer") Perforation of bowel (most commonly transverse colon) leading to peritonitis Puncture of the left lobe of the liver leading to liver capsule pain Gastrocolic fistula: this may be suspected if diarrhea appears a short time after feeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • For obstruction, it can cause compression in the GI tract from the stomach to colon, compression in urinary system, biliary system, and arteriovenous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • soft tissue
  • Other reported sites of heterotopic salivary gland tissue are the middle ear, parathyroid glands, thyroid gland, pituitary gland, cerebellar pontine angle, soft tissue medial to sternocleidomastoid, stomach, rectum and vulva. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • A stomach rumble, also known as a bowel sound or peristaltic sound, is a rumbling, growling or gurgling noise produced by movement of the contents of the gastro-intestinal tract as they are propelled through the small intestine by a series of muscle contractions called peristalsis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • However, a new name was proposed to this technique in 2003, as a treatment positioned between EMR and laparoscopic surgery, since this technique is innovative and enables complete resection of neoplasms that were impossible to resect en bloc by EMR. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although
  • Although there are many kinds of NETs, they are treated as a group of tissue because the cells of these neoplasms share common features, such as looking similar, having special secretory granules, and often producing biogenic amines and polypeptide hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • multiple
  • C-peptide may be used for determining the possibility of gastrinomas associated with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasm syndromes (MEN 1). (wikipedia.org)
  • The tube (or multiple tubes) is used for gastropexy, or adhering the stomach to the abdominal wall, preventing twisting of the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
  • Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is an endoscopic medical procedure in which a tube (PEG tube) is passed into a patient's stomach through the abdominal wall, most commonly to provide a means of feeding when oral intake is not adequate (for example, because of dysphagia or sedation). (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Moreover, very few publications have provided a genetic mutational analysis or have evaluated risk factors associated with such neoplasms. (readbyqxmd.com)
