Tyrphostin AG 126 inhibits development of postoperative ileus induced by surgical manipulation of murine colon. (1/151)

Manipulation of the bowel during abdominal surgery leads to a period of ileus, which is most severely manifested after procedures that directly involve the colon. Ileus is associated with the increased expression of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines, a leukocytic infiltration into the muscularis, and the release of mediators from resident and infiltrating leukocytes that directly inhibit intestinal smooth muscle contractility. Phosphorylation of tyrosine residues on regulatory proteins by protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) occurs at multiple steps in the signaling cascades that regulate the expression of proinflammatory genes. The purpose of this study was to determine whether inhibition of PTK activity will attenuate the inflammatory response associated with colonic ileus and lead to improved function. Using a rodent model of colonic postoperative ileus, we demonstrate that a single bolus injection of the PTK inhibitor tyrphostin AG 126 (15 mg/kg sc) before surgery significantly attenuates the surgically induced impairment of colonic contractility both in vivo and in vitro. Improvement in function was associated with a reduction in magnitude of inflammatory cell infiltrate and with a decrease in transcription of genes encoding proinflammatory mediators IL-1beta and monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1, inducible nitric oxide synthase, and cyclooxygenase-2. Furthermore, tyrphostin AG 126 pretreatment significantly inhibited activation of multifactorial transcription factor NF-kappaB, which could form the basis for reduction in proinflammatory mediator expression. These data demonstrate for the first time that inhibition of PTK activity may represent a novel approach for management of ileus in the clinical setting.  (+info)

Bouveret's syndrome complicated by a distal gallstone ileus. (2/151)

AIM: Gastric outlet obstruction caused by duodenal impaction of a large gallstone migrated through a cholecystoduodenal fistula has been referred as Bouveret's syndrome. Endoscopic lithotomy is the first-step treatment, however, surgery is indicated in case of failure or complication during this procedure. METHODS: We report herein an 84-year-old woman presenting with features of gastric outlet obstruction due to impacted gallstone. She underwent an endoscopic retrieval which was unsuccessful and was further complicated by distal gallstone ileus. Physical examination was irrelevant. RESULTS: Endoscopy revealed multiple erosions around the cardia, a large stone in the second part of the duodenum causing complete obstruction, and wide ulceration in the duodenal wall where the stone was impacted. Several attempts of endoscopic extraction by using foreign body forceps failed and surgical intervention was mandatory. Preoperative ultrasound evidenced pneumobilia whilst computerized tomography showed a large stone, 5 cm x 4 cm x 3 cm, logging at the proximal jejunum and another one, 2.5 cm x 2 cm x 2 cm, in the duodenal bulb causing a closed-loop syndrome. She underwent laparotomy and the jejunal stone was removed by enterotomy. Another stone reported as located in the duodenum preoperatively was found to be present in the gallbladder by intraoperative ultrasound. Therefore, cholecystoduodenal fistula was broken down, the stone was retrieved and cholecystectomy with duodenal repair was carried out. She was discharged after an uneventful postoperative course. CONCLUSION: As the simplest and the least morbid procedure, endoscopic stone retrieval should be attempted in the treatment of patients with Bouveret's syndrome. When it fails, surgical lithotomy consisting of simple enterotomy may solve the problem. Although cholecystectomy and cholecystoduodenal fistula breakdown is unnecessary in every case, conditions may urge the surgeon to perform such operations even though they carry high morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Induced nitric oxide promotes intestinal inflammation following hemorrhagic shock. (3/151)

In hemorrhagic shock (HS), increased cytokine production contributes to tissue inflammation and injury through the recruitment of neutrophils [polymorphonuclear cells (PMN)]. HS stimulates the early expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) that modulates proinflammatory activation after hemorrhage. Experiments were performed to determine the contribution of iNOS to gut inflammation and dysmotility after HS. Rats subjected to HS (mean arterial pressure 40 mmHg for 2.5 h followed by resuscitation and death at 4 h) demonstrated histological signs of mucosal injury, impairment of intestinal smooth muscle contractility, extravasation of PMN, and increased gut mRNA levels of ICAM-1, IL-6, and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). In addition, DNA binding activity of NF-kappaB and Stat3, an IL-6 signaling intermediate, was significantly increased. In shocked rats treated with the selective iNOS inhibitor l-N(6)-(1-iminoethyl)lysine at the time of resuscitation, histological signs of intestinal injury and PMN infiltration were reduced and muscle contractility was almost completely restored. Selective iNOS inhibition in shocked animals reduced the binding activity of NF-kappaB and Stat3 and reduced mRNA levels of ICAM-1, IL-6, and G-CSF. The results of studies using iNOS knockout mice subjected to HS were similar. We propose that early upregulation of iNOS contributes to the inflammatory response in the gut wall and participates in the activation of signaling cascades and cytokine expression that regulate intestinal injury, PMN recruitment, and impaired gut motility.  (+info)

A comparison of two surgical strategies for the emergency treatment of gallstone ileus. (4/151)

INTRODUCTION: Debate currently exists regarding the appropriate surgical strategy for emergency treatment of gallstone ileus. This relates to the need for definitive biliary tract surgery after relief of mechanical obstruction. Our study reviews treatment by enterolithotomy alone and enterolithotomy combined with definitive biliary tract surgery and fistula closure to determine if there is advantage of one treatment option over the other. METHODS: The clinical, operative and follow-up data on 19 consecutive patients treated by emergency surgery for gallstone ileus from January 1992 to December 2000 was retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: There were 15 women and four men, with a mean age of 74.6 (range 62-91) years. Pre-operative diagnosis was made in only nine of 19 patients. Enterolithotomy alone (E group) was performed in seven patients and enterolithotomy with cholecystectomy and fistula closure (E+C group) in 12 patients. In the E group, more patients had significant co-morbidity as identified by poorer American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) status, poorer pre-operative status (shock at presentation) than in the E+C group. Operative time was significantly shorter in the E group. However, there were no significant differences in morbidity, and both groups had zero mortality. CONCLUSION: Both procedures can be carried out safely and with zero mortality. Relief of obstruction remains the mainstay of treatment. The better surgical option in our series is enterolithotomy alone. It is safe in both low and high-risk patients, and requires a shorter operating time as it is technically less demanding. In the longer term, the remnant fistula also does not appear to lead to further complications.  (+info)

A prospective randomized study of laparoscopy and minilaparotomy in the management of benign adnexal masses. (5/151)

BACKGROUND: Recent prospective and randomized studies have demonstrated that laparoscopy is better than laparotomy in the treatment of benign adnexal masses. The aim of this study is to analyse the perioperative outcomes of laparoscopy and minilaparotomy in these patients, in a prospective and randomized manner. METHODS: Between January 2003 and August 2003, 100 consecutive women with a diagnosis of presumed benign adnexal mass and requiring surgical treatment were randomly assigned to minilaparotomy and laparoscopy. Randomization was centralized and computer-based. RESULTS: All operative procedures were performed without conversion to laparotomy. In the group of patients submitted to minilaparotomy, a shorter operating time than patients submitted to operative laparoscopy (mean+/-SD: 71.9+/-31.8 versus 87.0+/-44.8 min; P<0.05) was found. On the other hand, there were significant differences in terms of postoperative ileus (1.1+/-0.4 days in laparoscopy and 1.4+/-0.6 in minilaparotomy P<0.023), without affecting the day of discharge. No intraoperative or early complications were registered in either group. CONCLUSIONS: Taking into account that laparoscopy has to be considered the first choice for benign adnexal surgery, our data suggest that minilaparotomy could offer the gynaecology surgeon a valid alternative in the minimally invasive surgery field, especially in specific settings.  (+info)

Mechanisms of polymicrobial sepsis-induced ileus. (6/151)

Sepsis frequently occurs after hemorrhage, trauma, burn, or abdominal surgery and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in severely ill patients. We performed experiments to delineate intestinal molecular and functional motility consequences of polymicrobial sepsis in the clinically relevant cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) sepsis model. CLP was performed on male Sprague-Dawley rats. Gastrointestinal transit, colonic in vivo pressure recordings, and in vitro muscle contractions were recorded. Histochemistry was performed for macrophages, monocytes, and neutrophils. Inflammatory gene expressions were quantified by real-time RT-PCR. CLP delayed gastrointestinal transit, decreased colonic pressures, and suppressed in vivo circular muscle contractility of the jejunum and colon over a 4-day period. A leukocytic infiltrate of monocytes and neutrophils developed over 24 h. Real-time RT-PCR demonstrated a significant temporal elevation in IL-6, IL-1beta, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, and inducible nitric oxide synthase, with higher expression levels of IL-6 and inducible nitric oxide synthase in colonic extracts compared with small intestine. Polymicrobial CLP sepsis induces a complex inflammatory response within the intestinal muscularis with the recruitment of leukocytes and elaboration of mediators that inhibit intestinal muscle function. Differences were elucidated between endotoxin and CLP models of sepsis, as well as a heterogeneous regional response of the gastrointestinal tract to CLP. Thus the intestine is not only a source of bacteremia but also an important target of bacterial products with major functional consequences to intestinal motility and the generation of cytokines, which participate in the development of multiple organ failure.  (+info)

Churg-Strauss syndrome (allergic granulomatous angiitis) associated with T lymphoblastic lymphoma. (7/151)

We report a rare case of Churg-Strauss syndrome in a 37-year-old man, presented as ileus intestinal and associated with Tlymphoblastic lymphoma, that was located in the retroperitoneal space and infiltrated the suprarenal gland. The T lymphoblasts, with the immunohistochemical method, disclosed positivity for CD3 and CD8, while they were negative for Pan B and CD20.  (+info)

Alvimopan, a novel, peripherally acting mu opioid antagonist: results of a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase III trial of major abdominal surgery and postoperative ileus. (8/151)

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that alvimopan (6 or 12 mg) accelerates recovery of gastrointestinal (GI) function in patients undergoing laparotomy for bowel resection or radical hysterectomy. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Postoperative ileus (POI) following laparotomy may increase morbidity and extend hospitalization. Opioids can contribute to the duration of POI. Alvimopan is a novel opioid receptor antagonist in development for the management of POI. METHODS: A total of 510 patients scheduled for bowel resection or radical hysterectomy were randomized (1:1:1) to receive alvimopan 6 mg, alvimopan 12 mg, or placebo orally > or =2 hours before surgery, then twice a day (b.i.d.) until hospital discharge or for up to 7 days. The primary efficacy end point was a composite of time to recovery of upper and lower GI function. An associated secondary end point was time to hospital discharge order written. RESULTS: The modified intent-to-treat population included 469 patients (451 bowel resection and 18 radical hysterectomy patients). Time to recovery of GI function was accelerated for the alvimopan 6 mg (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.28; P < 0.05) and 12 mg (HR = 1.54; P < 0.001) groups with a mean difference of 15 and 22 hours, respectively, compared with placebo. The time to hospital discharge order written was also accelerated in the alvimopan 12 mg group (HR = 1.42; P = 0.003) with a mean difference of 20 hours compared with placebo. The incidence of adverse events was similar among treatment groups. CONCLUSIONS: Alvimopan accelerated GI recovery and time to hospital discharge order written compared with placebo in patients undergoing laparotomy and was well tolerated.  (+info)

PURPOSE: There is no consensual definition of postoperative ileus (POI), which leads to a lack of reproducibility. The aims of this study were (i) to propose and evaluate a classification of postoperative ileus based on its consequences and (ii) to assess the reproducibility of the classification. METHODS: A national global survey was carried out according to the DELPHI method in order to create a classification of primary POI. The classification was subsequently tested on a cohort of patients who underwent colorectal surgery. Finally, a reproducibility test was performed in five teaching hospitals with junior and senior surgeons. RESULTS: A five-stage classification was proposed: grade A (least) to grade E (worst). For better differentiation, subcategories (D1/D2) were included. Overall, 173 patients were included who underwent colorectal surgery. Forty of them experienced primary postoperative ileus (23.1%). Grade A occurred in 10 cases, grade B in 10 cases, grade C in 14 cases, grade D1 in 2 cases,

Management of gallstone ileus has historically been through open incisions. However, with the advance of laparoscopic techniques the trend is more skewed towards minimally invasive approach. Here we describe a case of gallstone ileus that was managed totally laparoscopically with good patient outcomes. A seventy-seven years old lady presented with small bowel obstruction secondary to a large gallstone, detected on CT scan. Patient underwent a totally laparoscopic approach with minimal number of port insertion to retrieve the stone. Post operatively patient did not have any complications. In our video we describe an eight step approach to laparoscopic management of gallstone ileus. The technique allows for rapidly locating the stone and safely removing it with minimal contamination. The technique is safe and aims to ...
The objectives of the study were to determine whether retrospective data can be used to answer questions about the efficacy of prokinetic agents when used to treat horses with post-operative ileus (POI). We describe prevalence and mortality of POI with reference to treatment with four prokinetic agents. By combining data from two Hospitals a study population of 55 horses with POI following pedunculated lipoma obstruction (PLO) was established. Univariable and multivariable associations were determined between short term survival and potential explanatory variables. With death as outcome in multivariable models, breed and hospital were significantly associated with outcome but the use of prokinetic agents was not (P=0.15). However, sample size estimates indicate the low power of this study to detect differences in outcome. It was not possible definitively to evaluate the efficacy of prokinetics as treatment for POI following PLO using retrospective data. The data were suggestive of limited ...
Background: Abdominal surgery results in a molecular and cellular inflammatory response in the intestine, leading to postoperative ileus. It was hypothesised that resident macrophages within the intestinal muscularis have an important role in this local inflammation.. Aims: To investigate whether chemical or genetic depletion of resident muscularis macrophages would lead to a reduction in the local inflammation and smooth-muscle dysfunction.. Methods: Two rodent models were used to deplete and inactivate macrophages: (1) a rat model in which resident macrophages were depleted by chlodronate liposomes; (2) a model of mice with osteopetrosis mice, completely lacking the resident muscularis macrophages, used as an additional genetic approach. Animals with normal or altered intestinal macrophages underwent surgical intestinal manipulation. The inflammatory response was investigated by quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction for mRNA of MIP-1α, interleukin (IL)1β, IL6, ...
Intestinal inflammation is associated with dysfunction from the mucosal barrier, which can occur in intestinal bowel diseases, allergic diarrhea, and infectious enteritis, or conditions that affect muscularis or outer layers of the bowel wall, such as peritonitis and postoperative ileus. In the latter case, intestinal muscularis macrophages play an important role in inducing intestinal dysmotility during inflammation by producing PGs and NO (7, 20, 40, 41, 50). However, the roles of PGs in iNOS induction and the subsequent intestinal dysmotility are not well understood. In the present study, we demonstrate that PGE2 produced due to LPS stimulation activates the muscularis resident macrophages via EP2 and EP4 receptors to express the iNOS gene, which, in turn, induces intestinal dysmotility via the production of NO. PGE2 induces iNOS gene expression through the cAMP/PKA/MAPK signal transduction pathways in the intestinal muscularis macrophages.. Intestinal muscularis macrophages play an important ...
The incidence of ileus after laparoscopic colectomy continues to pose complications for the patient, staff, and the healthcare system. Postoperative ileus remains a source of morbidity and a major determinant of length of stay after abdominal surgery. Clinicians have devised strategies that minimize postoperative ileus. Gum chewing, an inexpensive intervention, is theorized to activate the cephalic- vagal reflex and increase the production of gastrointestinal hormones associated with bowel motility. Four studies examining gum chewing as an intervention to prevent ileus were found. These relatively few studies have demonstrated inconsistencies. Because of the small sample size of the four studies and the inconsistencies of the results, there is not enough evidence to change practice. There are no indications of risks associated with gum chewing as an adjunct therapy along with standard postoperative interventions. The purpose of this prospective, randomized control study is to examine if chewing ...

Acalovschi, I.; Badea, G., 1978: Effectiveness of (intermittent) continuous peridural anesthesia in the prevention of postoperative ileus
The main treatment modality for Bouverets syndrome is surgery, especially when percutaneous or endoscopic approaches are not an option or have failed [53]. The most common surgical options for extracting the stone are enterolithotomy and gastrotomy [16, 54]. Small bowel obstruction should be managed by enterolithotomy with longitudinal antimesenteric incision. A transverse closure of the enterolithotomy site is recommended to avoid stenosis [27, 28]. Resection is required for parts of the small bowel that have become irreversibly damaged [54, 55]. Surgical removal of the stone can be carried out with or without a simultaneous (one stage procedure) or subsequent cholecystectomy and fistula repair (two stage procedure) [15-17, 27, 28]. Cholecystectomy is indicated for retained gallstones in the gallbladder to prevent recurrence and complications [10, 54]. Laparoscopic techniques should be considered for surgical treatment whenever possible to minimize the physiological trauma. However, higher ...
Background: The Trigemino-cardiac reflex (TCR) has been studied as a phenomenon including bradycardia, arterial hypotension, apnea and gastric hypermotility during manipulation of the peripheral or central parts of the trigeminal nerve.Case presentation: We report a case of a 26-year-old man undergoing surgery for a skull base extra axial tumor in right petrous bone suspected to metastasis of a previous renal cell carcinoma which had been treated four years ago. The patient presented with continuous and unilateral headache and difficulty in swallowing, sensory neural hearing loss, nasal speech and tongue deviation to left side. He underwent general anesthesia with standard monitoring and total intravenous anesthetic technique. The first episode of sudden onset bradycardia and hypotension related to surgical manipulation was detected intraoperatively in which the heart rate spontaneously returned to normal level once the surgical manipulation stopped. However, it repeated several times by ...
Alvimopan is a peripherally acting μ opioid antagonist. It is used to avoid postoperative ileus following small or large bowel resection and accelerates the gastrointestinal recovery period.
Postoperative ileus is almost universal following major abdominal surgery. Nearly 100 years ago, Cannon and Murphy demonstrated that opening the peritoneal cavity and manipulating the intestines resulted in significant inhibition of GI tract contractile function in dogs. It has been suggested that epidural analgesia can shorten the duration of postoperative ileus and thereby decrease morbidity, length of hospital stay, and annual expense on ileus (approximately $750 million per year).. The autonomic nervous system certainly plays a large role in regulating GI motility. Tonic inhibitory sympathetic control (T6-L2) predominates, but parasympathetic activation increases contractile activity. Therefore, sympathectomy induced by epidural or spinal analgesia results in increased gut motility or inhibition of ileus development. This has been borne out by multiple studies, especially those involving epidural catheter placement at T12 or higher.. Additionally, the use of epidural analgesia with local ...

Before undergoing operations, the 20 rats assigned to the ST and SNT groups were appropriately anesthetized with isoflurane in pure oxygen and underwent sterile procedures for preoperative preparation. Each operation began with a midline incision. The small intestine was carefully exteriorized, and its entire length was gently rolled between gloved thumb and forefingers in a process taking 5 minutes. Saline-soaked gauze was then draped over the small intestine, where it was left in place for 10 minutes. After this time, the small intestine was returned to the abdominal cavity and the incision closed. The start of the experiment was defined as the moment when the rats received a subcutaneous injection of morphine sulphate, 0.3 mg/kg of body weight. (Rats that did not undergo surgical procedures also received morphine injections, to control for the effects of morphine.) The rats were then wrapped in a soft pad for the recovery period. All rats were housed in separate enclosures, to facilitate ...

Intraoperative angiography was also found to be useful in the reassessment of residual lesions after the surgical approach had been modified. Our study revealed 43 cases in which repeat imaging was conducted. The results of these repeat studies confirmed complete eradication of the lesion in 19 (44%) and persistent lesion requiring additional surgical manipulation in 24 (56%) of the cases. Therefore, it is necessary to repeat the imaging technique at various stages during the operation to identify the anatomic changes as the operation progresses and to ensure total eradication of the lesion.. Analysis of the combined data showed that intraoperative angiography verified complete eradication in 158 procedures (84%). In a second group of 15 patients (8%) the lesion was thought to be completely treated on the basis of previous intraoperative angiograms and surgical inspection; however, repeat intraoperative angiograms were not obtained after minor surgical manipulations. This lack of consistency was ...
A common consequence of abdominal surgery is that the patients digestive system stops working for a few days. This is called ileus and it can be both painful and uncomfortable for the patient. Ileus can lead to nausea, vomiting, and abdominal discomfort and is associated with complications, reduced patient satisfaction, and increased length of hospital stay.. Chewing gum is hypothesized to reduce postoperative ileus by stimulating early recovery of gastrointestinal function. Chewing gum tricks the body into thinking it is eating, causing the digestive system to start working again. Given that most people have previous experience of chewing gum, the intervention is generally well tolerated by individuals. Chewing gum as an intervention is also low-cost and easy to implement.. A team of Cochrane authors, based in the UK and Denmark and working with the Cochrane Colorectal Cancer Group, set out to evaluate if chewing gum after surgery hastens the return of gastrointestinal function. Randomized ...
has had a long and winding development history. Adolor has already received two approvable letters for Entereg in 2005 and 2006. The FDA first decided not to approve the drug in 2005 for lack of evidence of efficacy, then asked for more safety data in the 2006 letter. Earlier in the year, Adolors hopes of fixing the FDAs safety concerns appeared dashed, after new adverse events popped up in a study intended to assuage the agencys safety concerns about the drug. Entereg-treated patients experienced a previously unseen increased rate of neoplasms (abnormal cell growth that can sometimes lead to cancer) compared to placebo patients. Despite the new safety issues from this long-term-use study, Adolor persisted in filing another Entereg marketing application for post-operative ileus (POI). POI patients will only be taking Entereg for a short time, and may not experience the same risks as with its long-term use. Its hard to see Entereg getting FDA approval after the negative safety data popped up. ...

Review question In patients who have their bladder removed, does the drug alvimopan compared to placebo help them recover their bowel function more quickly?. Background Surgical removal of the bladder is a major operation that requires a stay of several days in hospital. One of the issues that keeps patients in hospital is not being able to eat normal food and not having bowel movements, an issue that is referred to as ileus. Alvimopan is a drug that is being used to treat this problem but it is uncertain how well it works and what its side effects are when used in this setting.. Study characteristics We performed a comprehensive literature search for randomized controlled trials and found one study that addressed our question. This study was a randomized trial of adults undergoing surgery to remove their bladder. They received either 12 mg alvimopan of up to 15 doses over seven days (143 patients) or placebo (137 patients). This study was conducted at centres that did many of these operations ...
In the days following abdominal surgery, patients intestinal contents pass more slowly or not at all. New research at KU Leuven (University of Leuven), Belgium, has now shown that this phenomenon -- known as post-operative ileus or bowel paralysis -- is not caused by the cells previously identified as the main players. Quite the opposite, in fact: the cells even help restore bowel function. The findings are very important for further research into post-operative patient treatment.

Materials and methods: Muscle strips (n=8/rat) of 6 naive (NC) and 8 Sprague Dawley rats after small bowel manipulation (POI) were studied. Ileus was confirmed by delayed small bowel transit. Dose-response curves were generated for phenylephrine (α-agonist; 10-8-3x10-6M) and isoprenaline (β-agonist; 3x10-10-10-7M) and effects of bethanechol-precontraction (3x10-6M), L-NIL and nimesulide (inhibiting inducible NO-synthase (10-4M) and cyclooxygenase-2 (10-5M)), L-NNA (non-specific NO-synsthase inhibitor; 10-4M), tetrodotoxin (TTX; blocking enteric nervous system; 10-6M), phentolamine (α-antagonist; 10-5M) or propranolol (β-antagonist; 5x10-6M) on response to agonists were studied. Release of excitatory neurotransmitters was investigated by electrical field stimulation ...

Looking Ipamorelin functions, it can be said to be similar to GHRP-6 on how to increase ghrelin and gastric motility, and aims at a selective pulse of GH. Although hunger sides in Ipamorelin is almost zero. This makes it a much more flexible peptide before bed time dose. Unlike GHRP-6 and GHRP-2, Ipamorelin occurred at high doses have almost no direct effect on the cortisol and prolactin production. This means that users can dose higher and more frequently without having to worry about the levels of cortisol and acetylcholine in plasma is elevated. In short, it can be softer GHRP, but are in no way the weakest. In fact, a GHRP, has proven to be one of the longer, and, at higher doses, the most powerful. Ipamorelin operation is a slow one building is much more like the release of the body hormone natural hormone (GH). This makes it the healthiest choice in the bunch!. How does it work?. After an athlete manages Ipamorelin, a selective pulse is sent that induces the hypothalamus / pituitary to ...

A delivery assembly for use in surgery particularly laparoscopic surgery, comprises a surgically implantable construct (1) containing viable cells, a support (2) on which the construct is removably carried and holding means such as a vacuum system (4, 5) releasably holding the construct on the support. The support (2) is selected from a tube having an interior surface on which the construct is held, and a rod having an exterior surface on which the construct is held. The support protects the delicate construct and maintains it in a desired position for surgical manipulation.
Third, the authors address the issue of anesthetics as being lung protective. When discussing protection, it seems key that we clearly define the endpoint of such a protection. As already shown in several randomized controlled trials, the lung itself benefits from a volatile anesthesia, most often through attenuation of inflammatory processes, triggered by ventilation and/or surgical manipulation.5-7 Based on the result of one of these studies, where patients were shown to have less complications after thoracic surgery with volatile anesthetics,6 we hypothesized that there would be fewer complications overall for patients in the desflurane arm of our trial. Importantly, the trial of De Conno et al.6 included only 54 patients with surrogate markers as the primary and the clinical outcome as the secondary endpoint. With postoperative complications using a widely accepted classification system as the primary endpoint and an adequately powered approach, our hypothesis was not confirmed with our ...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The conscious patient cooperation during neurological procedures has become necessary for the delimitation of areas to be managed by a neurosurgeon, with better results in the treatment of tumor lesions, vascular or epileptic foci, and lesser sequelae. The need for perioperative awareness (responsiveness to commands) challenges anesthesiologists to further ensure patient safety during the procedure. Several techniques have been described for this purpose. CASE REPORT: In this case, interaction with the patient during brain tumor resection enabled a broad approach of the tumor lesion, limited by deficits in speech and naming observed during surgical manipulation, avoiding major consequences ...
Cell replacement therapy for diabetes requires knowledge for understanding how functional β-cell mass is maintained in the adult pancreas. As cell replication is the predominant way for adult β cells to increase their number (4,5), numerous growth factor pathways have been extensively studied for their involvement in β-cell replication. Even though TGFβ signaling was shown to play an important role in pancreas development (15-19,38), pancreatitis-induced fibrosis (14,15,39-41), and pancreatic cancer development (13), its involvement in adult β homeostasis is very poorly understood. In the current study, we generated PTF1acreTBR12F mice that were double mutant for TBRI and TBRII in the adult pancreas (26,27) and selected two surgical manipulations (PPX and PDL) to study the effect of TGFβ signaling on adult pancreatic β-cell proliferation. Although β-cell toxins like alloxan or streptozotocin (42) have been extensively studied for β-cell destruction and possible regeneration, we took ...

Looking for online definition of terminal ileus in the Medical Dictionary? terminal ileus explanation free. What is terminal ileus? Meaning of terminal ileus medical term. What does terminal ileus mean?
Paralytic ileus (or adynamic ileus) refers to a lack of passage of intestinal contents due to disturbances of normal intestinal motility, in absense of mechanical obstruction. The most common causes are intra-abdominal surgery, severe metabolic problems, drugs. We present two clinical cases related to patients with breast cancer and admitted with paralytic ileus following treatment with capacitabine in local Lanciano Hospital. Naranjo, Jones algoritms suggest a direct causal relationship. Our two cases, to our knowledge, represent the first published report of this particular intestinal toxicity of capecitabine. Pathophisiological explanation is difficult because no data are known about fluoropyrimidines effects on enteric motor functions (motor system, neural influences, hormonal factors): Tegafur (UFT) also, another oral fluoropyrimidine, induces paralytic ileus. We hypothesize that some 5-flourouracil metabolites (5-fluorocitrate; fluoro-beta-alanine), seldom responsible for central and ...

Results During a 30 year period 582 966 babies have been screened by IRT-IRT and 147 764 by IRT-DNA-IRT (total 730730), resulting in 296 screen positive cases of CF and 29 false negatives (including 10 false negatives with meconium ileus). Ten missed CF cases were pancreatic insufficient, however all were diagnosed before their first birthday, suggesting that a false negative result did not forestall appropriate clinical investigation. The IRT-DNA-IRT protocol had a much improved positive predictive value (PPV) of 85.9% compared to 67.3% for IRT-IRT, excluding CF babies with meconium ileus. The PPVs increased to 82.2% and 98.2% respectively if only well, term babies were considered. The main factor to account for this improvement in PPV has probably been the incorporation of DNA analysis in the second tier testing.. ...

N2 - Disturbance of the inflammatory response in the gut is important in several clinical diseases ranging from inflammatory bowel disease to postoperative ileus. Several feedback mechanisms exist that control the inflammatory cascade and avoid collateral damage. In the gastrointestinal tract, it is of particular importance to control the immune response to maintain the balance that allows dietary uptake and utilization of nutrients on one hand, while preventing invasion of bacteria and toxins on the other hand. The process of digestion and absorption of nutrients requires a relative hyporesponsiveness of the immune cells in the gut to luminal contents which is not yet fully understood. Recently, the autonomic nervous system has been identified as an important pathway to control local and systemic inflammation and gut ...

Mandibular ORN has decreased over the last decades from 20% to 4-8% likely because of improved understanding of the condition, and more selective radiation techniques. Patients treated with head and neck radiation are at increased risk for the development of ORN of the jaw if they have had surgical manipulation of the jaw (e.g. extraction of an infected tooth), particularly after radiation treatments. Patients are also at higher risk for development of ORN if they were treated with chemotherapy at the same time as their radiation, if the tissue-sparing (IMRT) technique of radiation was not used, and if patients smoked during or after radiation treatment.. ORN is best prevented by early removal of unsalvageable teeth at least 2 weeks before radiation is scheduled to begin. Thus, it is important that patients see their dentists as soon as possible after the diagnosis of head and neck cancer is confirmed for a thorough evaluation of the teeth. The appropriate follow up dental care (e.g. fluoride ...

The diagnosis of this condition is not always straightforward due to sometimes unspecific and subtle initial symptoms and having a high level of suspicion in patients with a history of cholelithiasis is key. Beside the clinical symptoms of obstructive gastric ileus, the diagnosis nowadays is mainly made by endoscopy, abdominal ultrasound, and/or x-ray and/or CT-scan. While upper endoscopy has a very high success rate in diagnosing the mechanical obstruction, it fails to correctly identify an impacted gallstone as the cause in almost one-third of patients (as the stone can be deeply embedded within the mucosa and blood and clots may obstruct the view). A diagnostic aid is the presence of Riglers triad on plain abdominal x-ray films, consisting of a dilated stomach, pneumobilia (air in the biliary tree) and a radio-opaque shadow in the region of the duodenum representing the migrated gallstone. If further migration of the gallstone can be detected on follow up x-ray films, then this completes ...

I have been having a battle this year. Increased time in my bed coupled with a strange kind of pelvic/hip/leg pain have meant my mobility is significantly reduced. Intestinal Dysmotility complicates things further. You can read about the battle here. Like most things, I have been tackling it at snails pace. Theres the problem of having a cast-iron appetite (seriously. I dont know why that is. I spend most of every day nauseated but my love for food even surpasses that!) And then there is the issue of dizzyness when I am upright. I spend my upright time on the essentials related to my kids and family. Its exhausting. Riding my bike, which was possible even last summer, is out of reach for me now.. I saw my local doctor last week. She was concerned about the way things are. More time in bed means less time weight bearing. That means lower bone density and muscle wastage, further reducing mobility. Less time moving means even my significantly reduced food intake, is still providing me with too ...

Treatment depends on the location and severity of the obstruction. For partial obstructions or an ileus, it may be possible to treat by simply resting the bowels and giving intravenous (IV) fluids. Bowel rest means youll be given nothing to eat, or clear liquids only, during that time. Treating dehydration is important. IV fluids may be started to correct electrolyte imbalance. A catheter may be inserted into the bladder to remove fluid.. A tube may need to be passed through the nose and down into the throat, stomach, and intestines to relieve:. ...

This Phase I trial determined the maximum tolerated dose of S-1 to be 50 mg/m2/day when administered to advanced cancer patients once daily for 21 days, followed by a 1-week break. DLTs included fatigue, nausea, vomiting, ileus, diarrhea, and hyperbilirubinemia. Myelosuppression was not a significant toxicity in our study, although it has been predominant in several previous studies (20 , 21) . Pharmacokinetic analysis revealed rapid oral absorption of S-1 components. The 5-FU AUC derived from S-1 observed at both dose levels (50 and 60 mg/m2 of tegafur) is ,10 times higher than we reported previously with administration of a single UFT dose of 100 mg/m2 (1225 and 1887 h·ng/ml versus 103 h·ng/ml; Ref. 25 ). Our 5-FU half-life of 2.6 h compares favorably with that of 5-FU bolus administration (8-14 min) and approximates that seen with UFT (7 , 26) .. Toxicity in our study did not differ significantly from that seen in two other Phase I studies that evaluated S-1 on a twice-daily schedule for 28 ...
Peritoneale Verwachsungen sind die häufigste Komplikation nach operativen Eingriffen. Sie haben abdominelle Beschwerden, chronische Ileuszustände und den akuten Ileus zur Folge. Diese peritonealen Reaktionen sind bei Neugeborenen und Säuglingen besonders ausgeprägt. Seit es operative abdominelle Eingriffe gibt, stellt das Vermeiden von peritonealen Adhäsionen ein zentrales Problem dar. Eine Vielzahl von Substanzen, lokal oder systemisch angewendet, wurde getestet, um Adhäsionen zu vermeiden. Bis heute hat sich kein gesicherter Standard für die Sekundärprophylaxe von Adhäsionen etabliert. Eine nicht ausreichende Wirksamkeit oder klinisch nicht akzeptable Nebenwirkungen sind dafür die Ursache. Das primäre Vermeiden von Verwachsungen steht nach wie vor im Mittelpunkt chirurgischer Bemühungen. Das organschonende Operieren und das Verbannen von Talkum an den Handschuhen der Chirurgen sind weltweit anerkannte Maßnahmen der Primärprophylaxe von Adhäsionen. Dass man auch den Abrieb von ...

The small intestine is found in all tetrapods and also in teleosts, although its form and length vary enormously between species. In teleosts, it is relatively short, typically around one and a half times the length of the fish's body. It commonly has a number of pyloric caeca, small pouch-like structures along its length that help to increase the overall surface area of the organ for digesting food. There is no ileocaecal valve in teleosts, with the boundary between the small intestine and the rectum being marked only by the end of the digestive epitheliu.[22] In tetrapods, the ileocaecal valve is always present, opening into the colon. The length of the small intestine is typically longer in tetrapods than in teleosts, but is especially so in herbivores, as well as in mammals and birds, which have a higher metabolic rate than amphibians or reptiles. The lining of the small intestine includes microscopic folds to increase its surface area in all vertebrates, but only in mammals do these develop ...
