A method of tissue ablation and bleeding control that uses ARGON plasma (ionized argon gas) to deliver a current of thermocoagulating energy to the area of tissue to be coagulated.
Argon. A noble gas with the atomic symbol Ar, atomic number 18, and atomic weight 39.948. It is used in fluorescent tubes and wherever an inert atmosphere is desired and nitrogen cannot be used.
Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.
Control of bleeding performed through the channel of the endoscope. Techniques include use of lasers, heater probes, bipolar electrocoagulation, and local injection. Endoscopic hemostasis is commonly used to treat bleeding esophageal and gastrointestinal varices and ulcers.
The use of green light-producing LASERS to stop bleeding. The green light is selectively absorbed by HEMOGLOBIN, thus triggering BLOOD COAGULATION.
INFLAMMATION of the MUCOUS MEMBRANE of the RECTUM, the distal end of the large intestine (INTESTINE, LARGE).
A distinct vascular lesion in the PYLORIC ANTRUM that is characterized by tortuous dilated blood vessels (ectasia) radiating outward from the PYLORUS. The vessel pattern resembles the stripes on the surface of a watermelon. This lesion causes both acute and chronic GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE.
Acquired degenerative dilation or expansion (ectasia) of normal BLOOD VESSELS, often associated with aging. They are isolated, tortuous, thin-walled vessels and sources of bleeding. They occur most often in mucosal capillaries of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT leading to GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE and ANEMIA.
Bleeding in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.
The process of the interaction of BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS that results in an insoluble FIBRIN clot.
A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the esophagus.
Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).
A condition with trapped gas or air in the PERITONEAL CAVITY, usually secondary to perforation of the internal organs such as the LUNG and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, or to recent surgery. Pneumoperitoneum may be purposely introduced to aid radiological examination.
Injuries caused by electric currents. The concept excludes electric burns (BURNS, ELECTRIC), but includes accidental electrocution and electric shock.

These compounds can be administered topically or systemically and have been used therapeutically to treat psoriasis and various types of neoplasms.
Laboratory tests for evaluating the individual's clotting mechanism.
Therapy using oral or topical photosensitizing agents with subsequent exposure to light.
A disorder characterized by procoagulant substances entering the general circulation causing a systemic thrombotic process. The activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders. A majority of the patients manifest skin lesions, sometimes leading to PURPURA FULMINANS.
Endogenous substances, usually proteins, that are involved in the blood coagulation process.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.
Clotting time of PLASMA recalcified in the presence of excess TISSUE THROMBOPLASTIN. Factors measured are FIBRINOGEN; PROTHROMBIN; FACTOR V; FACTOR VII; and FACTOR X. It is used for monitoring anticoagulant therapy with COUMARINS.
Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of abnormalities in blood coagulation due to a variety of factors such as COAGULATION PROTEIN DISORDERS; BLOOD PLATELET DISORDERS; BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS or nutritional conditions.
Constituent composed of protein and phospholipid that is widely distributed in many tissues. It serves as a cofactor with factor VIIa to activate factor X in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation.
A low-osmolar, ionic contrast medium used in various radiographic procedures.
Heat- and storage-stable plasma protein that is activated by tissue thromboplastin to form factor VIIa in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. The activated form then catalyzes the activation of factor X to factor Xa.
The residual portion of BLOOD that is left after removal of BLOOD CELLS by CENTRIFUGATION without prior BLOOD COAGULATION.
A fibrin-stabilizing plasma enzyme (TRANSGLUTAMINASES) that is activated by THROMBIN and CALCIUM to form FACTOR XIIIA. It is important for stabilizing the formation of the fibrin polymer (clot) which culminates the coagulation cascade.
Tumors or cancer of the pelvic region.
Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.
The use of photothermal effects of LASERS to coagulate, incise, vaporize, resect, dissect, or resurface tissue.
The time required for the appearance of FIBRIN strands following the mixing of PLASMA with phospholipid platelet substitute (e.g., crude cephalins, soybean phosphatides). It is a test of the intrinsic pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII) and the common pathway (fibrinogen, prothrombin, factors V and X) of BLOOD COAGULATION. It is used as a screening test and to monitor HEPARIN therapy.
A plasma protein that is the inactive precursor of thrombin. It is converted to thrombin by a prothrombin activator complex consisting of factor Xa, factor V, phospholipid, and calcium ions. Deficiency of prothrombin leads to hypoprothrombinemia.
Storage-stable blood coagulation factor acting in the intrinsic pathway. Its activated form, IXa, forms a complex with factor VIII and calcium on platelet factor 3 to activate factor X to Xa. Deficiency of factor IX results in HEMOPHILIA B (Christmas Disease).
Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.
Any hindrance to the passage of air into and out of the lungs.
Tumors or cancer of the BRONCHI.
Agents acting to arrest the flow of blood. Absorbable hemostatics arrest bleeding either by the formation of an artificial clot or by providing a mechanical matrix that facilitates clotting when applied directly to the bleeding surface. These agents function more at the capillary level and are not effective at stemming arterial or venous bleeding under any significant intravascular pressure.
An autologous or commercial tissue adhesive containing FIBRINOGEN and THROMBIN. The commercial product is a two component system from human plasma that contains more than fibrinogen and thrombin. The first component contains highly concentrated fibrinogen, FACTOR VIII, fibronectin, and traces of other plasma proteins. The second component contains thrombin, calcium chloride, and antifibrinolytic agents such as APROTININ. Mixing of the two components promotes BLOOD CLOTTING and the formation and cross-linking of fibrin. The tissue adhesive is used for tissue sealing, HEMOSTASIS, and WOUND HEALING.
General disorders of the sclera or white of the eye. They may include anatomic, embryologic, degenerative, or pigmentation defects.
Tumors or cancer of the ANAL CANAL.
A malignancy arising in uterine cervical epithelium and confined thereto, representing a continuum of histological changes ranging from well-differentiated CIN 1 (formerly, mild dysplasia) to severe dysplasia/carcinoma in situ, CIN 3. The lesion arises at the squamocolumnar cell junction at the transformation zone of the endocervical canal, with a variable tendency to develop invasive epidermoid carcinoma, a tendency that is enhanced by concomitant human papillomaviral infection. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive carcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the epithelium of origin, without invasion of the basement membrane.
Neoplasms of the skin and mucous membranes caused by papillomaviruses. They are usually benign but some have a high risk for malignant progression.
A family of small, non-enveloped DNA viruses infecting birds and most mammals, especially humans. They are grouped into multiple genera, but the viruses are highly host-species specific and tissue-restricted. They are commonly divided into hundreds of papillomavirus "types", each with specific gene function and gene control regions, despite sequence homology. Human papillomaviruses are found in the genera ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; BETAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; GAMMAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; and MUPAPILLOMAVIRUS.

Does capsule endoscopy recognise gastric antral vascular ectasia more frequently than conventional endoscopy? (1/23)

BACKGROUND: Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a rare cause of obscure gastrointestinal bleeding which can be difficult to recognise endoscopically. Capsule endoscopy is primarily designed to image the small bowel, but may identify gastric and colonic lesions. There have been few reported cases of GAVE diagnosed by capsule endoscopy in the literature. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to assess the frequency of GAVE in patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding referred for capsule endoscopy. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: This study was conducted in a tertiary referral hospital. PATIENTS. This study comprised 128 consecutive patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. INTERVENTIONS: All patients underwent capsule endoscopy. RESULTS. Six patients were diagnosed with GAVE on the basis of the capsule endoscopy findings (4.7%, five female, median age 71.5 years). All patients had previously had numerous gastrointestinal investigations prior to capsule endoscopy. Five patients to date have been treated with argon plasma coagulation of their vascular lesions. This has resulted in stabilisation of their haemoglobin and cessation of blood transfusions in 4/5 cases with an average follow up period of 15 months. CONCLUSIONS: GAVE is commonly missed at gastroscopy and accounted for 4.7% of patients referred for capsule endoscopy with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (in our series). This case series represents the largest number of GAVE recognised by capsule endoscopy. In the presence of any of the reported risk/associated factors for GAVE the gastroenterologist interpreting the capsule images should have a high index of suspicion.  (+info)

Foreign body removal using bronchoscopy and argon plasma coagulation. (2/23)

Foreign body aspiration can be a life threatening event especially for young children with smaller diameters of airway size. The foreign body can result in body response and granulation tissue formation around the object which makes the foreign body removal difficult. In such situations surgical intervention is usually needed but with interventional pulmonology modalities we can restrict the need of surgery.  (+info)

Argon-plasma treatment in benign metastasizing leiomyoma of the lung: a case report. (3/23)

Benign metastasizing leiomyomas of the lung are rare smooth muscle cells tumours. We report the case of a 48 year-old female who was evaluated due to persistent cough, progressive dyspnoea and constitutional symptoms. Chest computed tomography revealed a left endobronchial mass, multiple parenchyma nodules and a pleural effusion. Bronchial biopsy histological features were consistent with benign metastasizing leiomyoma. The patient was successfully treated with argon-plasma and mechanical debulking. There was no disease relapse in the last four years.  (+info)

Safety and efficacy of argon plasma coagulation for resection of lipomas and hamartomas in large airways. (6/23)

AIMS: To describe the use of argon plasma coagulation (APC) for radical resection of lipomas and hamartomas in large airways. METHODS: Eight patients (7 males and 1 female) were retrospectively reviewed. Data extracted included patient demographic characteristics, type and location of lesion, type of anesthesia used, number of APC sessions required, complications, length of hospital stay, and outcomes. All patients were followed-up for a minimum of 24 months. RESULTS: The patients had a mean age of 54.6 +/- 13.5 years. Lipomas were diagnosed in five and hamartomas in three. Because complete removal of the tumor could not be achieved during one session, two additional APC treatments were carried out in one of the patients, and three in another. Duration of each procedure ranged from 90 to 120 minutes. For the six patients performed under general anesthesia, only one session was required, and the mean time was 110 min. All tumors were completely removed, and no perioperative or long-term complications occurred. During a minimum follow-up of 2 years, no recurrence was noted in any patient. CONCLUSIONS: Complete resection of lipomas and hamartomas inside large airways can be safely achieved via APC. Further studies regarding the use of this technique for other tumor types are warranted.  (+info)

The etiology of gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) syndrome or gastric hyperplastic polyps (HPs) is not fully understood. We report a case of gastric HP arising in a patient treated with argon plasma coagulation (APC) for GAVE syndrome. Despite unclear etiologic progression, this and previously reported cases suggest a temporal relationship between the treatment of GAVE and HP. A 68-year-old male with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and diabetes type II who initially presented with symptomatic anemia 2 weeks after starting aspirin and clopidogrel therapy. Diagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) demonstrated diffuse GAVE. He was treated with 5 APC treatments, at 6-week intervals, over a 30 weeks period. 16 months after the initial APC treatment, an EGD performed secondary to persistent anemia demonstrated innumerable, large, bleeding polyps in the gastric antrum. Biopsy performed at that time confirmed hyperplastic gastric polyps. It has been proposed that HPs are
|i|Background|/i|. Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is useful to treat upper gastrointestinal bleeding, but its hemostatic efficacy has received little attention. |i|Aims|/i|. This investigation attempted to determine whether additional endoscopic injection before APC could improve hemostatic efficacy in treating high-risk bleeding ulcers. |i|Methods|/i|. From January 2007 to April 2011, adult patients with high-risk bleeding ulcers were included. This investigation compared APC plus distilled water injection (combined group) to APC alone for treating high-risk bleeding ulcers. Outcomes were assessed based on initial hemostasis, surgery, blood transfusion, hospital stay, rebleeding, and mortality at 30 days posttreatment. |i|Results|/i|. Totally 120 selected patients were analyzed. Initial hemostasis was accomplished in 59 patients treated with combined therapy and 57 patients treated with APC alone. No significant differences were noted between these groups in recurred bleeding, emergency surgery, 30-day
The mean age of patients was APC 65.8 ±10.03 vs. ESD 64.6 ±11.22 (p = 0.146). The mean adenoma size was 0.9 ± 0.45 cm in the APC group and 1.2 ± 0.72 cm in the ESD group (p < 0.001). The mean duration of hospital stay was significantly shorter in the APC group than the ESD group (APC 1.55 days vs. ESD 5.80 days, p < 0.001). Complication did not occur in the APC group. However, one case of perforation (0.9%) and 6 cases of bleeding (5.3%) occurred in the ESD group. Recurrence rates were 15.3% (15/97 patients) in the APC group and 3.5% (4/113 patients) in the ESD group (p = 0.003). One recurrent case of APC group was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma which was completely treated by surgery. The proportion of hospitalization was less in the APC group (43.3 %, 42/97) than the ESD group (100.0 %, 113/113) (p < 0.001). Medical expense was less in the APC group (377,172 won, 351 dollar) than the ESD group (1,430,610 won, 1,333 dollar) (p < 0.001). No complication was observed in APC treatment group by ...

For the coagulation of tissue by plasma, instruments are known that comprise a tubular probe body through which inert gas is conducted and an ignition electrode within the lumen in the region of an outlet of the probe body. A current conductor is provided to supply a coagulation current to the ignition electrode. The ignition electrode is fixed to the probe body substantially in the middle, by means of fixing devices. The present invention provides an instrument for plasma coagulation wherein a fixing device for the ignition electrode comprises a piece of sheet metal, a wafer or similar flat body, which is fixed by its longitudinal edges to the tube wall so that it extends substantially diametrically across the lumen, and to which the ignition electrode is attached.

Editor,-Spahr and colleagues recently published a case series which described the poor response of a haemorrhage from gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) to portal decompression by insertion of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) (Gut1999;44:739-742). However, the authors claim that this indicates the absence of a relation between GAVE and portal hypertension is seriously flawed. The failure of this condition to respond to portal decompression cannot exclude a primary role for portal hypertension in the pathogenesis of the disorder. Furthermore, this study would have been more informative if aortoportography-that is, superior mesenteric and splenic angiography with venous phase imaging, had been performed in order to determine the pattern of portosystemic shunting before and after TIPS insertion. The authors have not addressed the question of whether portosystemic shunts supply the vascular lesions of GAVE; it would have been helpful if they had performed angiography in at ...

Results Fifty SSc patients were diagnosed with GAVE. Seventeen patients (34%) suffered of symptomatic anemia and were treated with argon plasma coagulation (APC) for a mean (SD) of 4.5 (4.3) sessions per patient. The mean (SD) hemoglobin was 9.4 (1.7) gr% in the group who required endotherapy compared to 11.5 (1.3) in the group which did not need any intervention. Four patients needed more than 6 sessions of treatment. Mean (SD) follow up was 4.1 (2.4) years. Nine patients required a total of 73 packed blood cells units and another 4 had intravenous iron replacement. Four patients died during the first 2 years after diagnosis, none of them due to bleeding complications. None of the patients that survived more than 2 years required further endotherapy or blood transfusions. No significant complications of APC occurred. Interestingly, all those who survived,had received immunotherapy with cyclophosphamide or mycophenolate mofetil due to multisystem involvement and disease activity. ...
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 watermelon stomach is a condition in which the lining of the stomach bleeds, causing it to look like the characteristic stripes of a watermelon when viewed by endoscopy. although it can develop in men and women of all ages, watermelon stomach is most commonly observed in older women (over age 70 years). signs and symptoms of watermelon stomach include blood in the stool, hematemesis (vomiting blood) and anemia. the exact cause of watermelon stomach is unknown; however, it is often diagnosed in people with other chronic (long-term) conditions such as cirrhosis (scarring of the liver and poor liver function), autoimmune disease, systemic sclerosis, and crest syndrome. treatment consists of surgery and/or medications to stop or control the bleeding. last updated: 8/2/2016 ...

HIV infected men having sex with men (MSM) are at increased risk of developing anal cancer compared to the general population and the incidence continues to increase despite better control of HIV infection with HAART (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy). The causative agent is known to be Human Papilloma Virus infection which can lead to dysplastic changes in the anus, detectable by High Resolution Anoscopy with biopsies. The analysis of the abnormal tissue can then be graded as Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia 1 to 3, with AIN 2 or 3 considered as high grade dysplasia. These lesions are cancer precursors, but the proportion of lesions progressing to invasive anal cancer and the time to event are unknown. There is currently no recognized treatment to offer as standard of care although it is of general belief that treating these lesions, as it is done for women with CIN 2 and 3 (Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) could help decrease the number of progressions to invasive anal cancer in MSM ...

Ceana Nezhat, MD, Kimberly A. Kho, MD, MPH, Vadim Morozov, MD Introduction Plasma is often described as the fourth state of matter, consisting of ionized gas in the form of high-energy particles. At low temperatures (variable depending on the material) all matter exists in solid form. As heat is added and temperatures increase, the solid melts into liquid then evaporates into gas. When enough heat is applied to a gas, atoms and molecules are ionized and form plasma (Figure 1). The energy density in the plasma state is much higher than compared to solid, liquid, or gas. When heat is applied to argon gas, one of the noble gases, the electrons and argon ions separate to form pure argon plasma. The PlasmaJet system (Theale, Berkshire, UK) provides an electrically neutral stream of ionized argon gas. A low voltage of approximately 30V ionizes the argon gas thereby producing electrically neutral, high energy argon plasma which is emitted from the tip of the handpiece in a precise jet stream.

A surface plasmon resonance (SPR) apparatus was used to investigate blood plasma coagulation in real-time as a function of thromboplastin and heparin concentrations. The physical reason for the SPR signal observed is discussed and 3 different models are proposed. The response curves were analyzed by multivariable curve fitting followed by feature extraction. Interesting parameters of the sigmoid curves were lag time, slope and maximum response. When thromboplastin concentrations were increased, the lag-time decreased and the slope of the curve increased. A prolonged clotting time was followed mostly by increased maximum response, with exception for samples with no or very little thromboplastin added. High heparin concentrations changed the clotting kinetics. As seen from the lag-time vs. slope relation. Atomic force microscopy pictures of sensor surfaces dried after completed clotting, revealed differences in fibrin network structures as a function of thromboplastin concentration, and fiber ...

Five patients required a second endoscopic examination because of recurrent or persistent bleeding (3.7% of cases): a man of 56 years old with Gastric Cancer who required emergency surgery, a male of 68 years old with Pancreatic cancer duodenal extension required emergency surgery, a male of 42 years with Liver Cirrhosis with a second Esophageal variceal Bleeding that was treated with another elastic band, a 31 year old female with Stomach Ulcers without new endoscopic findings, a male of 48 years old with Diabetes Mellitus type 2 had Gastric Angiodysplasia previously treated with Argon plasma without new findings (Colonoscopy revealed Angiodysplasia at Cecum and was treated with Argon Plasma coagulation). During the first half of 2012 Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding was the indication 5.2% of all endoscopies and 8.7% of the Gastroscopies, being relevant [4].. In terms of demographic characteristics, associated medical conditions and current or recent medication it was no difference with those ...
Benign airway tumors with central airway obstruction require immediate intervention for symptoms relief. Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC) is a cheap tool readily available in hospitals.. Four patients presented for obstructing tracheal or bronchial tumor (2008 to 2011). Initial investigations included fiberoptic bronchoscopy and CT imaging of the chest. Argon plasma was set to 35 Watt and delivered in non-contact fashion through a large fiber during rigid bronchoscopy. Initially tumor coagulation was done followed by mechanical resection and finally APC was applied to tumor base. Patients were discharged next day and followed clinically by CT imaging and bronchoscopy. All patients were reevaluated one year after ablation to eliminate recurrence.. Case1: 24 years old female presented for uncontrolled asthma. Endoscopic resection with APC revealed tracheal schwannoma.. Case2: 35 years old female, 6 month pregnant, intubated for respiratory failure due to obstructive tracheal tumor. Endoscopic ...
The team assessed 96 patients who underwent endoscopic argon plasma coagulation with adequate acid suppression .. Acid suppression was obtained through a continuous omeprazole therapy in 50 patients, or through laparoscopic fundoplication in 46 patients.. The team observed that complete ablation was achieved in 94 patients who underwent follow-up.. Endoscopic and histological examinations were performed every 12 months.. The researchers noted that the median follow-up of the patients was 36 months.. The team observed a recurrence of intestinal metaplasia in 18% of patients, with an annual recurrence rate of 6%. The researchers found neither dysplasia, nor adenocarcinoma during the follow-up.. After further analysis, the team found that previous laparoscopic fundoplication was associated with a reduced recurrence rate of intestinal metaplasia.. Dr Ferraris team commented, The long-term recurrence of intestinal type Barretts esophagus was low after complete ablation with argon plasma ...
Synthetic implants are being used to restore injured or damaged tissues following cancer resection and congenital diseases. However, the survival of large tissue implant replacements depends on their ability to support angiogenesis that if limited, causes extrusion and infection of the implant. This study assessed the beneficial effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) on synthetic biomaterials in combination with argon plasma surface modification to enhance vascularisation of tissue-engineered constructs. Non-biodegradable polyurethane scaffolds were manufactured and modified with plasma surface modification using argon gas (PM). Donor rats were then used to extract ADSCs and PRP to modify the scaffolds further. Scaffolds with and without PM were modified with and without ADSCs and PRP and subcutaneously implanted in the dorsum of rats for 3 months. After 12 weeks, the scaffolds were excised and the degree of tissue integration using H&E staining and Massons
Since lasers have become so powerful in dusty plasma research, it is important to determine the manner in which a laser will affect the plasma. In this work, a Verdi ™ G-Series optically pumped semiconductor laser was used in conjunction with a Langmuir probe to determine the effect (if any) that the laser has on the plasma. A Langmuir probe was used to measure and monitor various plasma parameters in a dusty argon plasma. Measurements were taken with the laser immediately beneath the probe at various plasma pressures, plasma powers, and laser powers ...
A method for coagulating tissue during endoscopic surgery by using argon plasma coagulation is described. An endoscope is used having a flexible, hollow tube inserted through one of the working channels of the endoscope. Inside the tube an electrode is arranged stationarily being offset from the exit opening at the distal end of the tube in such a manner that the electrode cannot come into contact with the tissue. Argon or another inert gas is supplied from a source of gas through the tube to the exit opening with such a low flow rate that gas exiting through the exit opening is a non laminar stream which forms an inert gas atmosphere between the distal end of the tube and the region of the tissue to be coagulated, while the exit is maintained at a distance from the tissue to be coagulated, whereby the area of tissue to be coagulated is positioned sidewardly of the extended longitudinal axis of the protruding end portion of the tube.

Objectives: Evaluation of the outcome and experience in 2 years of management of portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG) by argon plasma coagulation (APC) in a cohort of Egyptian cirrhotic patients. Methods: This study was conducted over a 2-year period from January 2011 to February 2013. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was performed to evaluate the degree and site of PHG. APC was applied to areas with mucosal vascular lesions. Results: In total, 200 cirrhotic patients were enrolled; 12 patients were excluded due to death (n = 6) caused by hepatic encephalopathy (n = 3), hepatorenal syndrome (n = 2), or chronic lymphatic leukemia (n = 1), or did not complete the treatment sessions (n = 6), so 188 patients completed the study ...

Cardiovascular implants including bypass grafts, heart valves and stents are prone to thrombogenicity and mechanical incompatibility thus leading to limited graft patencies. Thus to overcome these issues, a nanocomposite polymer based on polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) nanoparticles and poly(carbonate urea)urethane (PCU) has been developed and patented. A solvent exchange coagulation technique has been used in the fabrication of a compliant, POSS PCU graft. In addition, we present details of bonding of bioactive peptides to attract progenitor stem cells from peripheral circulating blood onto the implants and the endothelialisation potential on the lumen. Peptides are designed to enhance interactions with cell receptor integrins whilst and in-vitro and in-vivo tests are performed to determine both endothelial and platelet as well as whole blood interactions. In conclusion these results, together with its ease of manufacture and low cost, suggest that POSS-PCU nanocomposite could be an ...
