Abnormal passage communicating with the STOMACH.
Abnormal communication most commonly seen between two internal organs, or between an internal organ and the surface of the body.
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
Hydrochloric acid present in GASTRIC JUICE.
The liquid secretion of the stomach mucosa consisting of hydrochloric acid (GASTRIC ACID); PEPSINOGENS; INTRINSIC FACTOR; GASTRIN; MUCUS; and the bicarbonate ion (BICARBONATES). (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p651)
An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
A synthetic pentapeptide that has effects like gastrin when given parenterally. It stimulates the secretion of gastric acid, pepsin, and intrinsic factor, and has been used as a diagnostic aid.
A family of gastrointestinal peptide hormones that excite the secretion of GASTRIC JUICE. They may also occur in the central nervous system where they are presumed to be neurotransmitters.
An abnormal passage or communication leading from an internal organ to the surface of the body.
An abnormal passage or communication between a bronchus and another part of the body.
An abnormal passage between two or more BLOOD VESSELS, between ARTERIES; VEINS; or between an artery and a vein.
An abnormal anatomical passage connecting the RECTUM to the outside, with an orifice at the site of drainage.
Lining of the STOMACH, consisting of an inner EPITHELIUM, a middle LAMINA PROPRIA, and an outer MUSCULARIS MUCOSAE. The surface cells produce MUCUS that protects the stomach from attack by digestive acid and enzymes. When the epithelium invaginates into the LAMINA PROPRIA at various region of the stomach (CARDIA; GASTRIC FUNDUS; and PYLORUS), different tubular gastric glands are formed. These glands consist of cells that secrete mucus, enzymes, HYDROCHLORIC ACID, or hormones.

Selective action of a CCK-B/gastrin receptor antagonist, S-0509, on pentagastrin-, peptone meal- and beer-stimulated gastric acid secretion in dogs. (1/111)

BACKGROUND: The pharmacological effects of a novel CCK-B/gastrin receptor antagonist, S-0509, on gastric acid secretion in dogs remain unknown. AIM: To evaluate the antisecretory effects of S-0509 on gastric acid secretion and to compare such effects with famotidine or atropine in dogs stimulated with various gastric stimulants. METHODS: Ten beagle dogs with a denervated Heidenhain pouch and three beagle dogs with an innervated gastric fistula were used. Gastric acid secretion was stimulated by either continuous intravenous administration of pentagastrin, carbachol or histamine, or oral administration of a peptone meal or beer. RESULTS: In the Heidenhain pouch model, both intravenously administered and orally administered S-0509 significantly inhibited the gastric acid secretion stimulated by pentagastrin, peptone meal and beer. Nonetheless, the drug had little or no effect on carbachol-stimulated or histamine-stimulated acid secretion. Famotidine extensively inhibited all gastric acid secretion stimulated by the above stimulants in a non-selective manner. Atropine also significantly inhibited the acid secretion stimulated by pentagastrin, peptone meal, beer or carbachol, but was not able to inhibit stimulation due to histamine. Oral administration of peptone meal or beer significantly increased the plasma gastrin level. Similarly to the Heidenhain pouch model, even in the gastric fistula (GF) model, S-0509 significantly inhibited pentagastrin-stimulated gastric acid secretion, yet the drug had no effect on carbachol-stimulated secretion. CONCLUSIONS: S-0509 is a selective CCK-B/gastrin receptor antagonist in dogs that inhibits gastric acid secretion stimulated by pentagastrin and gastrin-releasing substances, but does not inhibit histamine-stimulated and carbachol-stimulated acid secretion.  (+info)

Anaesthetic agents inhibit gastrin-stimulated but not basal histamine release from rat stomach ECL cells. (2/111)

By mobilizing histamine in response to gastrin, the ECL cells in the oxyntic mucosa play a key role in the control of the parietal cells and hence of gastric acid secretion. General anaesthesia suppresses basal and gastrin- and histamine-stimulated acid secretion. The present study examines if the effect of anaesthesia on basal and gastrin-stimulated acid secretion is associated with suppressed ECL-cell histamine secretion. A microdialysis probe was implanted in the submucosa of the ventral aspect of the acid-producing part of the stomach (32 rats). Three days later, ECL-cell histamine mobilization was monitored 2 h before and 4 h after the start of intravenous infusion of gastrin (5 nmol kg(-1) h(-1)). The rats were either conscious or anaesthetized. Four commonly used anaesthetic agents were given 1 h before the start of the experiments by intraperitoneal injection: chloral hydrate (300 mg kg(-1)), pentobarbitone (40 mg kg(-1)), urethane (1.5 g kg(-1)) and a mixture of fluanisone/fentanyl/midazolam (15/0.5/7.5 mg kg(-1)). In a parallel series of experiments, basal- and gastrin-induced acid secretion was monitored in six conscious and 25 anaesthetized (see above) chronic gastric fistula rats. All anaesthetic agents lowered gastrin-stimulated acid secretion; also the basal acid output was reduced (fluanisone/fentanyl/midazolam was an exception). Anaesthesia reduced gastrin-stimulated but not basal histamine release by 55 - 80%. The reduction in gastrin-induced acid response (70 - 95%) was strongly correlated to the reduction in gastrin-induced histamine mobilization. The correlation is in line with the view that the reduced acid response to gastrin reflects impaired histamine mobilization. Rat stomach ECL cells were purified by counter-flow elutriation. Gastrin-evoked histamine mobilization from the isolated ECL cells was determined in the absence or presence of anaesthetic agents in the medium. With the exception of urethane, they inhibited gastrin-evoked histamine secretion dose-dependently, indicating a direct effect on the ECL cells. Anaesthetized rats are widely used to study acid secretion and ECL-cell histamine release. The present results illustrate the short-comings of such an approach in that a number of anaesthetic agents were found to impair not only acid secretion but also the secretion of ECL-cell histamine - some acting in a direct manner.  (+info)

Review of 404 patients with gastrointestinal fistulas. Impact of parenteral nutrition. (3/111)

This paper represents an extensive review, spanning 30 years of experience with 404 patients with gastrointestinal fistulas. It includes the first period (1945-1960) during the introduction of antibiotics, the second period (1960-1970) which saw rapid improvements in parasurgical care including, respiratory support, perfection of antibiotics, some introduction of nutritional support and improved monitoring, and the third period which saw the introduction of parenteral nutrition specifically central venous hyperalimentation using hypertonic glucose and amino acids (1970-1975) in the treatment of patients with fistulas. The principal causes for mortality in the historical sense were malnutrition, sepsis and electrolyte imbalance. Mortality among patients with gastrointestinal cutaneous fistulas decreased between the first and second periods from approximately 48 to 15%. Surprisingly, mortality did not decrease further in the "hyperalimentation period" although spontaneous closure of gastrointestinal fistulase increased. The results suggest that the improvement in mortality in patients with gastrointestinal cutaneous fistulas is mostly due to the introduction of improved parasurgical care. It is acknowledged that nutritional support was practiced in the 1960's although this was generally not in the form of hyperalimentation. The addition of hyperalimentation in large scale to the treatment of gastrointestinal cutaneous fistulas has improved spontaneous closure and is a valuable part of the armamentarium. The decrease in mortality however, cannot be attributed to parenteral nutrition.  (+info)

Gastrocolic and gastrojejunocolic fistulae: report of twelve cases and review of the literature. (4/111)

Seven gastrocolic and five gastrojejunocolic fistulae were recorded at Charity Hospital between 1940 and 1970. Such fistulae occurred in males more often than females. In this series, as in others, the most common cause was gastric surgery for peptic ulcer disease. Pain, diarrhea, and weight loss were clinical findings in half the patients; anemia, leukocytosis, electrolyte disturbances and hypoalbuminemia were common laboratory findings. A fistula was demonstrated radiologically in nine of the twelve patients, management of these patients included no operation (3); two-stage procedure (2); and one-stage procedure (7); with a recent trend toward the one-stage procedure. A case report of a fistula resulting from postoperative complications of perforative appendicitis in which a successful combination of hyperalimentation and diverting colostomy was used is presented.  (+info)

The vagus, the duodenal brake, and gastric emptying. (5/111)

It has been suggested that an intact vagal supply is essential for the normal function of the recptors in the duodenum and proximal small bowel, which influence the rate of gastric emptying. This paper reports the effect of vagal denervation on gastric emptying and also examines the site and mode of action of receptors in the proximal small bowel. It has been demonstrated in the dog that most, if not all, the receptors controlling gastric emptying lie in the proximal 50 cm of the small bowel. Following truncal vagotomy the emptying time of each instillation increased significantly and the differential rate of emptying of different instillations remained unchanged. The proximal 50 cm of small bowel was capable to differentiating between different instillates even after selective extragastric vagotomy, in which the duodenum was vagally denervated and, therefore, duodenal braking receptors function independently of vagal innervation.  (+info)

Gastric necrosis and perforation as a complication of splenectomy. Case report and related references. (6/111)

Necrosis of the stomach after isolated splenectomy with the formation of gastrocutaneous fistula is a rare event that occurs in less than 1% of splenectomies. It is more frequent when the removal of the spleen is done because of hematological diseases. Its mortality index can reach 60% and its pathogenesis is controversial, as it may be attributed both to direct trauma of the gastric wall and to ischemic phenomena. Although the stomach may exhibit exuberant arterial blood irrigation, anatomical variations can cause a predisposition towards the appearance of potentially ischemic areas, especially after ligation of the short gastric vessels around the major curvature of the stomach. Once this is diagnosed in the immediate postoperative period, it becomes imperative to reoperate. The surgical procedure will depend on the conditions of the peritoneal cavity and patient's clinic status. The objective of this study was to report on the case of a patient submitted to splenectomy because of closed abdominal traumatism, who then presented peritonitis and percutaneous gastric fistula in the post-operative period. During the second operation, perforations were identified in anterior gastric wall where there had been signs of vascular stress. The lesion was sutured after revival of its borders, and the patient had good evolution. Prompt diagnosis and immediate treatment of this unusual complication are needed to reduce its high mortality rate.  (+info)

The effects of intra-ruminal loading with cold water on thermoregulatory behaviour in sheep. (7/111)

1. Shorn sheep exposed to ambient termperatures of 5 degrees C soon learned to turn on infra-red heaters by placing their muzzles through a photoelectric beam, although before shearing they did not operate the heaters. 2. The duration of infra-red heating obtained decreased at higher ambient temperatures and at 25 degrees C very little heat was obtained. 3. When infra-red heaters totalling 900 or 1800 W were suspended above the sheep they turned on the 900 W heaters for almost exactly twice as long as they did the 1800 W heaters when exposed to 10 degrees C for 24 hr periods. 4. Loading the rumen with 1 l. water at 0-1 degree C produced an increment in the duration of infra-red heating obtained in a 1 hr period. At ambient temperatures of 0, 10 and 20 degrees C the increment observed after intraruminal loading with 2 l. water at 0-1 degree C was almost exactly double that obtained with a 1 l. loading. 5. Loading the rumen with 1 l. water at 0-1 degree C did not result in the sheep increasing the duration of infra-red heating obtained at ambient temperatures of 30 degrees C but a 2 l. loading was effective. At an ambient temperature of 40 degrees C the 2 l. load was ineffective.  (+info)

PACAP stimulates gastric acid secretion in the rat by inducing histamine release. (8/111)

Previous studies have shown that pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP) stimulates enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell histamine release, but its role in the regulation of gastric acid secretion is disputed. This work examines the effect of PACAP-38 on aminopyrine uptake in enriched rat parietal cells and on histamine release and acid secretion in the isolated vascularly perfused rat stomach and the role of PACAP in vagally (2-deoxyglucose) stimulated acid secretion in the awake rat. PACAP has no direct effect on the isolated parietal cell as assessed by aminopyrine uptake. PACAP induces a concentration-dependent histamine release and acid secretion in the isolated stomach, and its effect on histamine release is additive to gastrin. The histamine H2 antagonist ranitidine potently inhibits PACAP-stimulated acid secretion without affecting histamine release. Vagally stimulated acid secretion is partially inhibited by a PACAP antagonist. The results from the present study strongly suggest that PACAP plays an important role in the neurohumoral regulation of gastric acid secretion. Its effect seems to be mediated by the release of ECL cell histamine.  (+info)

Introduction: Before the era of laparoscopic gastric bypass, many bariatric surgeons performed open undivided gastric bypasses(OUGB). The inherent issue with not dividing the stomach is that these patients are prone to staple line failure and gastrogastric fistula formation. Gastrogastric fistulas can lead to reflux, pain, marginal ulceration of the gastrojejunostomy, and weight regain. Any of these symptoms are an indication to repair these fistulas. Herein, we examine the feasibility of laparoscopic division of the stomach to repair gastrogastric fistula after OUGB, despite previous open surgery. Methods: Patients presenting to our office with pain or weight gain following OUGB were evaluated with upper gastrointestinal radiographic studies and upper endoscopy. Presence of a gastrogastric fistula was the indication for repair. All procedures were planned by the laparoscopic approach. Patients gave informed consent to divide their stomachs using linear cutting staplers with preservation of ...
Background Gastrointestinal fistula (GIF) in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) is considered as a sparse episode and studied sporadically in the literature. progressed to GIF. Only occurrence of infected pancreatic and extra-pancreatic necrosis (IPN) (P?=?0.004, OR?=?3.012) and modified CT severity index Felbamate (MCTSI) (P?=?0.033, OR?=?1.183) were proved to be independent risk factors for GIF in individuals with SAP, and blood type B (P?=?0.048, OR?=?2.096, 95% CI: 0.748C3.562) indicated weaker association of risk element for GIF. The early (48C72 h after admission) enteral nourishment (EEN) (P?=?0.016, OR?=?0.267) acted like a protective element. Conclusions Event of IPN and high MCTSI are self-employed risk factors for the development of GIF in individuals with SAP, blood type B reveals a potential correlation with GIF in individuals with SAP. EEN is helpful to prevent the progression of GIF secondary to SAP. Keywords: Felbamate Severe acute pancreatitis, Gastrointestinal fistula, Risk ...

John S. Paek, DO, Chen Chen, MD, Nabil Tariq, MD. Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, USA (all authors).. ABSTRACT. Background: In this case report, a patient had complicated marginal ulcer perforation that led to gastrointestinal tract discontinuity with future plan for reversal. However in this novel case, the patient had spontaneous continuity, which prevented another major, complicated surgery.. Methods: A 59 year-old female who underwent exploratory laparotomy due to a very complicated perforated marginal ulcer that failed multiple medical/endoscopic treatments. Patient was left in discontinuity due to tissue friability, and was left with gastric tube to gastric pouch and gastric remnant, with plans to do anastomosis in three to six months.. Results: There was a spontaneous fistula that formed between the prior gastric pouch and gastric remnant with two gastric tubes found within gastric remnant.. Conclusion: Due to spontaneous gastrogastric fistulalization, or spontaneous gastric bypass ...
The case presented here appears of clinical relevance for at least two reasons: first, the gastrohepatopleural fistula associated to the hepatic abscess, and second, the relatively prolonged interval between the onset of symptoms and the final diagnosis. The gastropleural fistula is an uncommon condition and is facilitated by the corrosive action of the gastric juices (3, 4). The diagnosis of gastropleural fistula is usually made with contrast radiology, upper GI endoscopy, or at operation. The prognosis of a fistula extending from the upper GI tract to the pleura seems to depend upon the delay from diagnosis to surgical intervention due to the high risk of diverticulitis. Thus, it is important to take into account this condition early in the patients management (2, 5). Gastropleural fistula should be considered in the differential diagnosis of thoracic empyema, especially when there is a longstanding history of peptic ulceration (1). Bini et al (4) described a case of spontaneous ...

The body has a natural reflex to empty the bowel and this occurs usually about 15 to 20 minutes after a meal and is known as the Gastro-Colic reflex. In other words, if you put food in the top end of the gut tube, you will need to clear some space lower down, in order to make room for the waste material from this meal when it comes through. The problem is that in these modern, busy times with all the rush and things to do, we often suppress this urge, and like most things, if not used properly, it gets a little rusty! But the reflex is always there, even when not used, and it can be reactivated. So, if constipation is a problem, then chose a meal that you might regularly have time after, and then about 15 minutes after eating, go to the little romm with a book or magazine and sit and wait to see if you can feel that reflex wanting to work. If after say 5 minutes, nothing has happened, then repeat after the next appropriate meal. With patience, you should be able to become aware of your bowel ...

We report an extremely rare case of a migratory fish bone penetrating through the thyroid gland. A 56-year-old Japanese woman presented with a two-month history of a painless cutaneous fistula in her anterior neck with pus discharge. Endoscopic examinations showed no abnormality, but computed tomography revealed a bone-density needle-shaped foreign body sticking out anteroinferior from the esophagus wall, penetrating through her left thyroid lobe and extending nearly to the anterior cervical skin. A migratory fish bone was suspected, and the foreign body was removed under general anesthetic, combined with a hemithyroidectomy. The injured esophageal mucosa was sutured and closed. Our patients postoperative course was uneventful, and she was allowed oral food intake seven days after the surgery. No evidence of recurrence was seen over the postoperative follow-up period of 42 weeks. We should be aware that fish bone foreign bodies may migrate out of the upper digestive tract and lodge in the thyroid gland
In small low anal fistulas, first excise the fistula tract followed by application of Kshara and wait for 2 minutes. Later neutralize with Lemon juice and pack with Yastimadhu Taila. It is helpful for quick healing and avoids recurrence of fistula tract.. In high level fistulas, excision of fistulous tract was done partially followed by application of Kshara. Later Kshara Sutra is applied in remaining fistulous tract at anal sphincteric area.

Sarcopenia is a well-known phenomenon in elderly individuals and resistance exercise together with sufficient amino acid (AA) availability has proved to be a counteractive implement. However, the source of AA and supplement timing require further investigation. The objective was to compare muscle protein synthesis (MPS) to intakes of whey and caseinate after heavy resistance exercise in healthy elderly individuals, and, furthermore, to compare the timing effect of caseinate intake. Twenty-four elderly men and women (mean ± SEM; 68 ± 1 years) were randomized to one of four groups: caseinate intake before exercise (CasPre), caseinate intake immediately after exercise (CasPost), whey intake immediately after exercise (Whey), or intake of a non-caloric control drink (Control). Muscle myofibrillar and collagen fractional synthesis rates (FSR) were measured by a primed continuous infusion of l-[1-13C]leucine using labeled proteins during a 6-h recovery period. No differences were observed in muscle ...
I am a 27 years old woman who had weight loss surgery done 4 months back. After 2 days, one of the staples came off and I had peritonitis. I am tube fed and have an appratus that collects whatever my stomach drains, which is mostly saliva. Even though I am draining less now, the perforation doesnt seem to close even after 4 months. When I left the hospital I was draining 180 ml per day, which came down to 13 ml/day, but now it has increased to 50-60 ml/day again. I am taking Ensure and Isopure and the nutrients in these two are supposed to help the perforation close. Two days back, I had blood work done and everything was fine, except my albumin levels were low. |b|Is it essential that my albumin should be high in order to get the perforation closed?|/b|

SOMERSET, NJ - New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance Acting Commissioner Ken Kobylowski told a group of approximately 85 business leaders last week at the Departments first Captive Insurance Summit that the Christie Administrations economic development policies have made New Jersey a great environment in which to form or redomesticate captive insurance companies. Thanks to the leadership of Governor Chris Christie, we have a new and growing captive insurance market, Acting Commissioner Kobylowski said. These captive companies in New Jersey were those formed by a diverse group of businesses such as communications, healthcare and life insurance as well as a company that redomesticated from New York. The Department hosted the Summit to familiarize companies planning to form captives with the States regulations and application process and to bring together experts in the captives industry to discuss emerging trends and issues. In February 2011, Governor Christie signed the Captive ...

The sudden appearance of intestinal contents draining from an abdominal incision is an emotionally devastating experience for both patients and surgeons. An enterocutaneous fistulas (ECF) is an abnormal communication between the bowel lumen and skin, often associated with fluid and electrolyte abnormalities, malnutrition, and sepsis. It is reported that spontaneous fistula closure rates vary from 15% to 71% after conservative treatment with wound care, control of infection, and nutritional support. Sufficient time should be allotted for the ECF to heal with conservative treatment, which also results in long-term discomfort.. Adjuvant use of fibrin glue (FG) in the fistula tract may promote healing in low-output ECF. Containing high concentrations of human fibrinogen and thrombin, FG have been used extensively in many surgical fields as a biological adhesive system for tissue adhesion or hemostasis. Different types of FG are now employed: commercially produced and homemade autologous adhesives. ...

Exercise can improve symptoms, as can revascularization.[4] Both together may be better than one intervention of its own.[4] Pharmacological options exist, as well. Medicines that control lipid profile, diabetes, and hypertension may increase blood flow to the affected muscles and allow for increased activity levels. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, adrenergic agents such as alpha-1 blockers and beta-blockers and alpha-2 agonists, antiplatelet agents (aspirin and clopidogrel), naftidrofuryl, pentoxifylline, and cilostazol (selective PDE3 inhibitor) are used for the treatment of intermittent claudication.[5] However, medications will not remove the blockages from the body. Instead, they simply improve blood flow to the affected area.[6] Catheter-based intervention is also an option. Atherectomy, stenting, and angioplasty to remove or push aside the arterial blockages are the most common procedures for catheter-based intervention. These procedures can be performed by interventional ...

In the kidneys, as a result of benign arterial hypertension, hyaline (pink, amorphous, homogeneous material) accumulates in the walls of small arteries and arterioles, producing the thickening of their walls and the narrowing of the arterial openings, a process known as arteriolosclerosis. The resulting inadequate blood flow produces tubular atrophy, interstitial fibrosis, and glomerular alterations (smaller glomeruli with different degrees of hyalinization - from mild to sclerosis of glomeruli) and scarring around the glomeruli (periglomerular fibrosis). In advanced stages, kidney failure will occur. Functional nephrons[5] have dilated tubules, often with hyaline casts in the opening of the tubules. Additional complications often associated with hypertensive nephropathy include glomerular damage resulting in protein and blood in the urine. Hypertensive nephropathy refers to kidney failure that can be attributed to a history of hypertension[6] It is a chronic condition and it is a serious risk ...
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract.[1] When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection (cystitis) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as a kidney infection (pyelonephritis).[9] Symptoms from a lower urinary tract infection include pain with urination, frequent urination, and feeling the need to urinate despite having an empty bladder.[1] Symptoms of a kidney infection include fever and flank pain usually in addition to the symptoms of a lower UTI.[9] Rarely the urine may appear bloody.[6] In the very old and the very young, symptoms may be vague or non-specific.[1][10] The most common cause of infection is Escherichia coli, though other bacteria or fungi may rarely be the cause.[2] Risk factors include female anatomy, sexual intercourse, diabetes, obesity, and family history.[2] Although sexual intercourse is a risk factor, UTIs are not classified as sexually transmitted infections (STIs).[11] ...

The resulting ischemia prompts further release of vasoactive substances including prostaglandins, free radicals, and thrombotic/mitotic growth factors, completing a vicious cycle of inflammatory changes.[9] If the process is not stopped, homeostatic failure begins, leading to loss of cerebral and local autoregulation, organ system ischemia and dysfunction, and myocardial infarction.[10] Single-organ involvement is found in approximately 83% of hypertensive emergency patients, two-organ involvement in about 14% of patients, and multi-organ failure (failure of at least 3 organ systems) in about 3% of patients. In the brain, hypertensive encephalopathy - characterized by hypertension, altered mental status, and swelling of the optic disc - is a manifestation of the dysfunction of cerebral autoregulation.[7] Cerebral autoregulation is the ability of the blood vessels in the brain to maintain a constant blood flow. People who suffer from chronic hypertension can tolerate higher arterial pressure ...
A Spigelian hernia (or lateral ventral hernia) is a hernia through the Spigelian fascia, which is the aponeurotic layer between the rectus abdominis muscle medially, and the semilunar line laterally. These are generally interparietal hernias, meaning that they do not lie below the subcutaneous fat but penetrate between the muscles of the abdominal wall; therefore, there is often no notable swelling. Spigelian hernias are usually small and therefore risk of strangulation is high. Most occur on the right side. (4th-7th decade of life.) Compared to other types of hernias they are rare.[1] ...
Yet another related disorder causing hypertension is glucocorticoid remediable aldosteronism, which is an autosomal dominant disorder in which the increase in aldosterone secretion produced by ACTH is no longer transient, causing of primary hyperaldosteronism, the Gene mutated will result in an aldosterone synthase that is ACTH-sensitive, which is normally not.[22][23][24][25][26] GRA appears to be the most common monogenic form of human hypertension.[27] Compare these effects to those seen in Conn's disease, an adrenocortical tumor which causes excess release of aldosterone,[28] that leads to hypertension.[29][30][31] Another adrenal related cause is Cushing's syndrome which is a disorder caused by high levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the cortex of the adrenal glands. Cushing's syndrome can be caused by taking glucocorticoid drugs, or by tumors that produce cortisol or adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).[32] More than 80% of patients with Cushing's syndrome develop ...

The vertebral arteries arise from the subclavian artery, and run through the transverse foramen of the upper six vertebrae of the neck. After exiting at the level of the first cervical vertebra, its course changes from vertical to horizontal, and then enters the skull through the foramen magnum. Inside the skull, the arteries merge to form the basilar artery, which joins the circle of Willis. In total, three quarters of the artery are outside the skull; it has a high mobility in this area due to rotational movement in the neck and is therefore vulnerable to trauma. Most dissections happen at the level of the first and second vertebrae. The vertebral artery supplies a number of vital structures in the posterior cranial fossa, such as the brainstem, the cerebellum and the occipital lobes. The brainstem harbors a number of vital functions (such as respiration) and controls the nerves of the face and neck. The cerebellum is part of the diffuse system that coordinates movement. Finally, the occipital ...
Aneurysm means an outpouching of a blood vessel wall that is filled with blood. Aneurysms occur at a point of weakness in the vessel wall. This can be because of acquired disease or hereditary factors. The repeated trauma of blood flow against the vessel wall presses against the point of weakness and causes the aneurysm to enlarge.[12] As described by the Law of Young-Laplace, the increasing area increases tension against the aneurysmal walls, leading to enlargement.. Both high and low wall shear stress of flowing blood can cause aneurysm and rupture. However, the mechanism of action is still unknown. It is speculated that low shear stress causes growth and rupture of large aneurysms through inflammatory response while high shear stress causes growth and rupture of small aneurysm through mural response (response from the blood vessel wall). Other risk factors that contributes to the formation of aneurysm are: cigarette smoking, hypertension, female gender, family history of cerebral aneurysm, ...
Ipecac or ipecacuanha consists of the dried rhizome and roots of Cephaelis ipecacuanha. The medical virtues of ipecac are almost entirely due to the action of its alkaloids-emetine and cephaline. Till today, emetine remains one of the best drugs for treating amoebic liver abscess. It has a direct action on the trophozoites. Its greater concentration and duration of action in the liver as compared to that in the intestinal wall explains its high efficacy in amoebic liver abscess and also its low parasitic cure rate for intestinal amoebiasis. The drug is detoxicated and eliminated slowly. It may, therefore, produce cumulative effects. In man, emetine poisoning is characterized by muscular tremors, weakness and pain in the extremities which tend to persist until drug administration is stopped. Gastro-intestinal symptoms include nausea, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. The latter may be mistaken for a recurrence of amoebic dysentery. Many clinicians fear the occurrence of cardiac toxicity due to this ...

... (TD) is a stomach and intestinal infection. TD is defined as the passage of unformed stool (one or more by some definitions, three or more by others) while traveling.[2][3] It may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and bloating.[3] Occasionally bloody diarrhea may occur.[5] Most travelers recover within four days with little or no treatment.[3] About 10% of people may have symptoms for a week.[3] Bacteria are responsible for more than half of cases.[3] The bacteria enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are typically the most common except in Southeast Asia, where Campylobacter is more prominent.[2][3] About 10% to 20% of cases are due to norovirus.[3] Protozoa such as Giardia may cause longer term disease.[3] The risk is greatest in the first two weeks of travel and among young adults.[2] People affected are more often from the developed world.[2] Recommendations for prevention include eating only properly cleaned and cooked food, drinking bottled water, and ...

The goals of treatment are to slow the progression of kidney damage and control related complications. Management of diabetic nephropathy currently centers over four main areas: Cardiovascular risk reduction, glycemic control, blood pressure control as well as inhibition of the RAAS system.[citation needed] Cardiovascular risk reduction: Patients with diabetes mellitus are at significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease, which is also an independent risk factor for kidney failure. Therefore, it is important to aggressively manage cardiovascular risk factors in patients diagnosed with DM in general and DN specifically. The main components of managing cardiovascular disease is with tobacco cessation, lipid-lowering therapies (eg, statins) as well as regular exercise and healthy eating.[32] In patients with kidney disease, atorvastatin is preferred over other statins as it does not require dose-adjustment based on GFR.[33] Glycemic control: Multiple studies have found a positive effect of ...

The first priority in suspected or confirmed pituitary apoplexy is stabilization of the circulatory system. Cortisol deficiency can cause severe low blood pressure.[1][6] Depending on the severity of the illness, admission to a high dependency unit (HDU) may be required.[1] Treatment for acute adrenal insufficiency requires the administration of intravenous saline or dextrose solution; volumes of over two liters may be required in an adult.[6] This is followed by the administration of hydrocortisone, which is pharmaceutical grade cortisol, intravenously or into a muscle.[4][6] The drug dexamethasone has similar properties,[6] but its use is not recommended unless it is required to reduce swelling in the brain around the area of hemorrhage.[1] Some are well enough not to require immediate cortisol replacement; in this case, blood levels of cortisol are determined at 9:00 AM (as cortisol levels vary over the day). A level below 550 nmol/l indicates a need for replacement.[1] The decision on ...
Evidence supports the use of heparin in people following surgery who have a high risk of thrombosis to reduce the risk of DVTs; however, the effect on PEs or overall mortality is not known.[27] In hospitalized non-surgical patients, mortality does not appear to change.[28][29][30] It does not appear, however, to decrease the rate of symptomatic DVTs.[28] Using both heparin and compression stockings appears better than either one alone in reducing the rate of DVT.[31] In hospitalized people who have had a stroke and not had surgery, mechanical measures (compression stockings) resulted in skin damage and no clinical improvement.[28] Data on the effectiveness of compression stockings among hospitalized non-surgical patients without stroke is scarce.[28] The American College of Physicians (ACP) gave three strong recommendations with moderate quality evidence on VTE prevention in non-surgical patients: that hospitalized patients be assessed for their risk of thromboembolism and bleeding before ...
