Peritoneal endometriotic lesions differentially express a haptoglobin-like gene. (1/318)

A unique glycoprotein, called endometriosis protein-I (ENDO-I), has previously been shown to be synthesized and secreted by rat and human endometriotic explants. Furthermore, the N-terminal amino acid sequence analysis showed that ENDO-I shares homology with haptoglobin. The present study was designed to determine this sequence of ENDO-I cDNA from human peritoneal endometriotic lesions and to determine the relative expression of the ENDO-I gene in several human tissues. Poly A-enriched RNA was isolated and reverse-transcribed. To determine the sequence of ENDO-I cDNA, a polymerase chain reaction was performed on cDNA from human endometriotic lesions and a gene-specific primer based on the human haptoglobin sequence. A similar procedure was followed to assess the relative expression of the ENDO-I gene in various tissues. Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate-dehydrogenase was used as an internal control. ENDO-I gene expression was quantified by densitometry. Sequence analysis of ENDO-I cDNA identified 873 nucleotides that displayed 99.4% homology with the human haptoglobin beta-chain. Relative expression of ENDO-I mRNA by peritoneal endometriotic lesions was 19-fold greater than peritoneum, 28-fold greater than endometrioma and 37-fold greater than eutopic endometrium (P<0.01). Haptoglobin-like ENDO-I may be associated with localized angiogenesis and altered immune response involved with the aetiology/pathophysiology of endometriosis.  (+info)

Celiomesenteric anomaly with concurrent aneurysm. (2/318)

We describe a rare case of a celiomesenteric anomaly with concurrent aneurysm. The patient, a 53-year-old man, had no abdominal pain or discomfort. The presence of a celiac artery aneurysm was suspected on the basis of the results of abdominal computerized tomographic scanning and echo ultrasound scanning performed because of proteinuria. Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiographic results showed the anomaly and aneurysm. Because of the risk of rupture of the aneurysm, the lesion was repaired surgically, with the placement of an interpositional prosthetic graft. We found no previous reports of celiomesenteric anomaly with concurrent aneurysm repaired with prosthetic graft.  (+info)

Transmesenteric hernia after laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. (3/318)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic-assisted surgery has been applied for a variety of colonic surgery. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a possible and avoidable complication of laparoscopic colonic surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 47-year-old woman underwent gasless laparoscopic-assisted sigmoid colectomy. On the 20th postoperative day, she developed bowel obstruction. Decompression with a long tube failed to resolve the bowel obstruction. Open laparotomy was performed. Abdominal exploration revealed a loop of the small bowel incarcerated in the mesenteric defect caused by the previous operation. Adhesiolysis was performed, and the postoperative course was uneventful. DISCUSSION: Despite technical difficulty, complete closure of the mesentery after bowel resection is strongly recommended for prevention of transmesenteric incarcerated hernia after laparoscopic surgery.  (+info)

Adhesion preventive effect of hyaluronic acid after intraperitoneal surgery in mice. (4/318)

Prevention of intraperitoneal adhesion after gynaecological surgery is essential for maintaining postoperative fertility. In this study, the adhesion prevention effect was examined of a hyaluronic acid (HA) solution obtained from the fermentation method and having a molecular weight of 1.9x10(6) with high viscosity. Laparotomy was conducted on female mice 7 weeks old, whose menstrual periods were synchronized by pregnant mare serum gonadotrophin (PMSG) to injure the uterine horn surface. Intraperitoneal adhesions were favourably formed in 91.7% of cases induced with iodine abrasion, compared with 50% induced by electrosurgery. Intraperitoneal administration of HA was evaluated for its effect on the prevention of adhesions made by iodine abrasion. Adhesion prevention effects of HA were observed at concentrations of 0.3, 0.5, 0.75 and 1.0%, among which the most pronounced effect was with the use of a 0.3% solution (92.3% of cases). Compared with the control group adhesion score of 2.0 +/- 0. 8, significant decreases in adhesion scores were observed at all concentrations. HA with a molecular weight of 1.9x10(6) was recognized to have a definitive prevention effect on postoperative adhesions in mice after laparotomy and is considered to be a prospective material for future clinical use.  (+info)

How long does laparoscopic surgery really take? Lessons learned from 1000 operative laparoscopies. (5/318)

The purpose of this study was to assess the operating time of the most common gynaecological laparoscopic procedures. We analysed retrospectively 1000 consecutive operative laparoscopies on a procedure-by-procedure basis. Diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic sterilization were specifically excluded from the analysis. The various laparoscopic procedures were grouped and analysed under six major categories. The average operating time for all cases was 76.9 min (range 10-400). In 38 cases (3.8%) the laparoscopic procedure was converted to laparotomy. The average operating time for treating ectopic pregnancy and tubal disease was approximately 60 min (range 13-240). Surgery for endometriosis and ovarian cysts averaged 72 min (range 10-240). Laparoscopic myomectomy and hysterectomy averaged 113 and 131 min respectively (range 25-400). Our results show that while the operating time for most operative laparoscopies is less than 75 min, the range of operating times is great. The relative lack of predictability in procedure times means that the efficient utilization of fixed theatre sessions is difficult.  (+info)

The role of neutrophils in the formation of peritoneal adhesions. (6/318)

The most common cause of intraperitoneal adhesions which may result in infertility and intestinal obstruction is previous abdominal surgery. Surgical trauma of the peritoneum in the absence of infection elicits a rapid and transient influx of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) into the peritoneal cavity. The role of neutrophils in intraperitoneal adhesion formation has not been studied. We aimed to study the effects of PMN counts and PMN functions on peritoneal adhesion formation. Forty peritoneal adhesion-induced rats were randomly divided into three groups; group I, receiving saline; group II, receiving cyclophosphamide; and group III, receiving granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF). In all groups, peritoneal lavage was performed to determine PMN counts the day after adhesion induction. Blood neutrophil counts and neutrophil functions were also determined. Adhesions were evaluated blindly 14 days after the operation. Adhesion tissue samples were microscopically evaluated. Tissue hydroxyproline and collagen concentrations were measured. The neutrophil counts and phagocytosis significantly increased in group III and neutrophil counts decreased in group II (P < 0.05). The score of adhesion formation in group II was significantly less than that in groups I and III (P < 0.05). Hydroxyproline concentrations of adhesion tissue were significantly decreased in group II when compared with group III (P < 0.05). The present study shows that neutropenia lowers the degree of postoperative adhesion formation. It is concluded that PMN may have a role to play in modulating post-operative adhesion formation.  (+info)

The mouse as a model to study adhesion formation following endoscopic surgery: a preliminary report. (7/318)

Our aim was to investigate the feasibility of a mouse model to study adhesion formation following endoscopic surgery. Following preliminary studies to establish anaesthesia and pneumoperitoneum pressure, a prospective randomized study was carried out to investigate the effect of CO2 pneumoperitoneum on postoperative adhesions. In group I (control group), the duration of pneumoperitoneum was shorter than 5 min. In groups II, III and IV, pneumoperitoneum was maintained for 60 min without flow, with a continuous low flow (1 ml/min) and a continuous high flow (10 ml/min) through the abdominal cavities of the mice using non-humidified CO2, respectively. Adhesions were scored after 7 days by laparotomy. The total adhesion scores were 0.9 +/- 0.8 (n = 15) in control group, 2.4 +/- 0.8 (n = 15) (P < 0.001 versus control group) in group II with no flow, 2.6 +/- 1.3 (n = 15) (P < 0.001 versus control group) in group III with a continuous low flow and 4.3 +/- 0.9 (n = 15) (P < 0.001 versus control group and P < 0.001 versus group II and III) in group IV with a continuous high flow. In conclusion, the mouse can be used as a model to study adhesion formation following endoscopic surgery. Duration of CO2 pneumoperitoneum is a co-factor in adhesion formation.  (+info)

Regulated antisense RNA eliminates alpha-toxin virulence in Staphylococcus aureus infection. (8/318)

The ability to selectively disrupt gene function remains a critical element in elucidating information regarding gene essentiality for bacterial growth and/or pathogenesis. In this study, we adapted a tet regulatory expression system for use in Staphylococcus aureus, with the goal of downregulating gene expression via induction of antisense RNA. We demonstrate that this system exhibits a 50- to 100-fold dose-dependent level of induction in bacterial cells grown in culture (i.e., in vitro) and also functions in mice (i.e., in vivo) following oral administration of inducer. To determine whether induced antisense RNA could interfere with chromosomally derived gene expression, we cloned a fragment of the S. aureus alpha-toxin gene (hla) in antisense orientation downstream of the tet promoter system and introduced the construct into S. aureus. Induced antisense hla RNA downregulated chromosomally derived hla gene expression in vitro approximately 14-fold. Similarly, induction of hla antisense RNA in vivo dramatically reduced alpha-toxin expression in two different murine models of S. aureus infection. Most importantly, this reduction completely eliminated the lethality of the infection. These results indicate that the tet regulatory system functions efficiently in S. aureus and induced antisense RNA can effectively downregulate chromosomal gene expression both in vitro and in vivo.  (+info)

Multilocular peritoneal inclusion cysts (MPICs) are most commonly found in women of reproductive years and involve the abdomen, pelvis, and retroperitoneum. It is commonly thought that these cysts are due to an inflammatory reaction. Patients usually present with chronic abdominal or pelvic pain and are diagnosed by ultrasound or CT scan. Although there are experimental medical treatment options surgical excision remains the current recommended primary therapy for symptomatic disease. The following case describes a pregnant female with rare MPIC involving the spleen and peritoneum. Biological behavior of MPIC and current therapy options are also discussed ...
Abstract. Objectives: Peritoneal inclusion cyst (PIC) is defined as a fluid-filled mesothelial-lined cysts of the pelvis and it is most frequently encountered in women of reproductive age. The treatment options are observation, hormonal management, imaging-guided aspiration, image-guided sclerotherapy and surgical excision. The objective of this study is to compare between the laparoscopic and laparotomic surgery for the treatment of PIC.. Methods: Thirty-five patients with laparoscopy and forty-eight patients with laparotomy were included in the study. We compared the perioperative and postoperative data, the complications and the recurrence between the two groups.. Results: There was a significantly reduced mean length of the hospital stay, estimated blood loss and complication rate in the laparoscopic group as compared to that of the laparotomic group (P=0.037, P=0.047 and P=0.037 respectively). There was also no statistical difference of recurrence rate between thelaparoscopic and ...
Peritoneal adhesions occur in up to 93% of adults after peritoneal trauma during surgery. Most adhesions are asymptomatic but can cause female infertility, small bowel obstruction (SBO) and chronic abdominal pain. Adhesion prophylaxis is needed to reduce the significant morbidity and increased health care costs resulting from peritoneal adhesions. This thesis aims to establish a relevant and reproducible experimental adhesion model to simultaneously study the healing processs and adhesion formation and later to examine whether carbazate-activated polyvinyl alcohol (PVAC), an aldehyde-carbonyl scavenger, can reduce adhesion formation or not; and, in a long-term follow-up, to investigate the incidence of and identify risk factors for adhesive SBO requiring surgical treatment after laparotomy during infancy and to survey the prevalence of self-reported chronic abdominal pain and female infertility. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to laparotomy, cecal abrasion, and construction of a small ...

Peritoneal adhesion formation is a common consequence of any operation or intra-abdominal inflammatory process (eg, pelvic inflammatory disease [PID], diverticulitis, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis). It is estimated that intra-abdominal adhesions develop in 90-95% of patients after surgery.
Another focus of our research is the characterization of endometriosis-associated smooth muscle cells in various forms of endometriosis. We could demonstrate oxytocin receptor (OTR)-positive muscle cells in peritoneal endometriotic lesions. In further studies, we could reveal data supporting a metaplastic origin of these muscle cells. This is particularly important for understanding of the pathogenesis of this disease and pain sensations that could possibly be caused by contraction of peritoneal muscles can be suggested. The detection of morphological changes in the structure of the myometrial wall in adenomyosis highlights the contractile dysfunction in patients with adenomyosis. Also interesting is the observation of a transition of the basal layer into the adjacent myometrium in women with adenomyosis compared to patients without adenomyosis and supports the current theory of rupture due to a basal hyperperistalsis. The OTR is involved in the uterine peristalsis and thus represents a possible ...

The recommended treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) includes optimal surgical debulking to , 1 cm residual disease, followed by a combination of intraperitoneal (IP) and intravenous (IV) chemotherapy for at least 6 cycles. Serous EOC is known to spread transperitoneally and is often diffusely disseminated within the peritoneal cavity. It is believed that IP therapy via direct contact is effective in treating such small intraperitoneal implants. What is not known is whether IP therapy is evenly distributed in individuals and to what degree adhesions and formation of scar tissue prevents the even distribution of chemotherapy within the belly, potentially impacting efficacy. Few studies have addressed the question of adhesions and intraperitoneal therapy in general, and there have been no studies specifically in ovarian cancer utilizing current guidelines. Efficacy has been proven for IP/IV therapy over IV alone but the range of survival within the IP group may be secondary to tumor ...
This is purely my conjecture based on my readings. The literature refers to peritoneal endometriosis, ovarian endometriosis, and deep infiltrating endometriosis. Current theory points to defects when our pelvic organs are developed (Mullerianosis) that leave stem cells in the wrong place. This might also explain why other mullerian disorders such as adenomyosis are frequently seen in endometriosis patients as well. These stem cells are acted upon by hormones (puberty) to develop as glands and stroma and begin the process of making nerves and blood vessels to support itself - as any good stem cell should. However that tissue should not be in those wrong sites and an inflammatory response happens. Factors from the environment (food, physical activity, stress, etc) play a role in presentation of illness. This is why diet etc might affect symptoms but will not rid the person of the lesions. The different locations of stem cells left behind might influence how they are acted upon by hormones and ...

Purpose: This study was performed to investigate the effects of Bojungikgi-Tang on the development of experimentally-induced endometriosis in rats. Methods: Endometriosis was induced in rats by autotransplanting uterine tissue to the peritoneum and we divided the rats into three groups: (1) sham-operated group (n=8), (2) surgically induced endometriosis and untreated control group(n=8), (3) surgically induced endometriosis and Bojungikgi-Tang treated group. Bojungikgi-Tang was orally administrated for 15 days after operation. Then we measured the body weight, the volume of endometriotic implants, the weight of uterus and ovary, and analysed the concentration of cytokines(MCP-1, TNF-|TEX|${\alpha}$|/TEX|, IL-1|TEX|${\beta}$|/TEX|, IL-6) in peritoneal fluids. Histopathology, immunohistochemistry for COX-2 and VEGF, and histochemistry for mast cell in transplanted uterine tissue were also performed. Results: 1.

The peritoneum is a serous membrane that consists of two layers: parietal peritoneum and visceral peritoneum (Figure 8-1A-C). The parietal peritoneum lines the internal walls of the abdominal cavity, forming a closed sac known as the peritoneal cavity. The peritoneal cavity is completely closed in males. In females, the peritoneal cavity has two openings where the uterine tubes, uterus, and vagina provide a passage to the outside. The parietal peritoneum reflects off of the posterior abdominal wall, forming a fused, double layer of peritoneum surrounding the blood vessels, nerves, and lymphatics to abdominal organs. This double layer of peritoneum, known as the mesentery, suspends the jejunum and ileum from the posterior abdominal wall. The peritoneum that surrounds the gut tube is called the visceral peritoneum. The peritoneal membranes produce a serous fluid that lubricates the peritoneal surfaces, enabling the intraperitoneal organs to slide across one another with minimal friction. ...
Endoscopic methods (laparoscopy and hysteroscopy) are valuable tools in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. Endoscopic (hysteroscopic-laparoscopic) surgery, by widening its range of application, has evolved into the treatment of choice for infertility cases, while it tends to minimize the indications for traditional laparotomy.. Hysteroscopy allows us to view the cavity of the uterus, i.e. the location that will receive the developing embryo and will support its development. Laparoscopy is useful for examining the internal female reproductive organs (i.e. uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries). Salpingoscopy allows us to view the intraluminal portion of the uterine tubes, although this method was not widely accepted, it is rarely used and is not part of everyday clinical practice.. Some pathological conditions of female genital organs cannot be diagnosed with any other method but by hysteroscopy (e.g. endomitritis) or laparoscopy (e.g. peritoneal endometriosis or adhesions). It is possible ...

Endometriosis is a chronic, inflammatory disease characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue in aberrant locations outside the uterus. Neoangiogenesis or establishment of new blood supply is one of the fundamental requirements of endometriotic lesion survival in the peritoneal cavity. IL-17A is emerging as a potent angiogenic and proinflammatory cytokine involved in the pathophysiology of several chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. However, sparse information is available in the context of endometriosis. In this study, we demonstrate the potential importance of IL-17A in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of endometriosis. The data show a differential expression of IL-17A in human ectopic endometriotic lesions and matched eutopic endometrium from women with endometriosis. Importantly, surgical removal of lesions resulted in significantly reduced plasma IL-17A concentrations. Immunohistochemistry revealed localization of IL-17A primarily in the stroma ...
Background. The use of locally administered agents to prevent intraperitoneal adhesions is a popular research topic. The presumed effects of these agents on tissue matrix limit their use. ...
Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent disease in which progesterone resistance and inflammation have been found to be major mechanisms responsible for its development and progression. When compared to eutopic endometrium, key molecules have been found to be differentially expressed, which contribute to these mechanisms. One pathway that is aberrant in endometriotic tissue when compared to eutopic endometrium is the retinoic acid signaling pathway. This review focuses on the role of the retinoid signaling pathway in endometriosis and summarizes evidence that supports the use of retinoid compounds for the stimulation of pro-apoptotic activity in these cells. ...
Intestinal adhesion after abdominal surgery is a continuous state of fibrosis and inflammation that concomitantly facilitates the progression of a variety of complications, such as chronic abdominopelvic discomfort, pain, and infertility. Berberine has recently become a useful anti-inflammatory drug for cardiovascular, endocrine, and intestinal disorders, because of its antitumor and antilipase effects (Jeong et al., 2009; Jiang et al., 2011; Meng et al., 2012; Yao et al., 2013). Here, we identified berberine as an antiadhesion agent that effectively protects against postabdominal surgery adhesion and inflammation, with several lines of evidence including reduced adhesion scores from direct assessment of adhesions, histopathology measurement of lymphocytes and vascular proliferation, decreased circulating concentration of ICAM-1, downregulated expression levels and secretion of various proinflammatory cytokines in both serum and cecum, and suppression of TAK1, JNK, and NF-κB signaling.. ICAM-1 ...

Bowel obstruction is a condition which has been known for many years. As time goes by, the problem is still often encountered at surgical emergency rooms. More than 20% of emergency surgical interventions are performed because of symptoms of digestive tract obstruction with the disease mostly situated in the small bowel. Rates of causative factors of the disease have changed over recent years and there have been increasingly more cases of small bowel obstruction caused by peritoneal adhesions, i.e., adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO).The aim of the study to analyse the reasons and incidence of adhesive small bowel obstruction during two periods of time (1990-1995 and 2005-2010).Material and methods. We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records of patients hospitalized at the 1st Department of General Surgery and Surgical Oncology of the Provincial Polyclinic Hospital in Płock between 1990 and 1995. The outcomes were compared with another period of 2005-2010.Results. We found ...
Inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 prevents intra-abdominal adhesions by decreasing activity of peritoneal fibroblasts Guangbing Wei,1 Xin Chen,2 Guanghui Wang,1 Pengbo Jia,1,3 Qinhong Xu,2 Gaofeng Ping,1 Kang Wang,1 Xuqi Li1 1Department of General Surgery, 2Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Xi’an Jiaotong University College of Medicine, Xi’an, 3Department of General Surgery, First People’s Hospital of Xianyang City, Xianyang, People’s Republic of China Background: Postoperative intra-abdominal adhesions are common complications after abdominal surgery. The exact molecular mechanisms that are responsible for these complications remain unclear, and there are no effective methods for preventing adhesion formation or reformation. The aim of the study reported here was to investigate the preventive effects and underlying potential molecular mechanisms of selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors in a rodent model of postoperative intra-abdominal
One case of primary omental torsion in a 10 year-old, 43 kg boy is presented. He presented with a history of acute, continuous pain in the upper abdomen, aggravated by changes of position. Physical examination of his abdomen showed board-like rigidity, tenderness and rebound tenderness over the entire abdomen. The preoperative diagnosis was perforated peptic ulcer. Exploratory laparatomy revealed torsion of the greater omentum. The tor sed omentum was excised and the outcome was good. Omental torsion is a rare surgical condition and is difficult to diagnose prior to operation. Therefore, in case of negative exploration for acute abdomen, the omentum should be included among the organs examined. In addition, careful search for an inflammatory focus should be made, because secondary omental torsion with intraabdominal sepsis is much more common than primary torsion ...

N2 - Objective: Adenomyosis is a clinical disorder defined by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma within the myometrium, the pathogenesis of which is poorly understood. We postulate that dysregulation of genes and pathways in eutopic endometrium may predispose to ectopic implantation. No study, to our knowledge, has examined the global transcriptome of isolated eutopic endometrium from women with clinically significant adenomyosis. Design: Laboratory-based study with full institutional review board approval and consents. Material and Methods: Endometrial sampling was performed on hysterectomy specimens (proliferative phase) from symptomatic ...
It was concluded that visceral manipulation has a positive benefit not only of lysing adhesions, but also of preventing them as well. Physiologically, visceral manipulation may decrease the formation of adhesions because it causes disruption of fibrin and inhibits fibroblast migration to the injured area. Additionally, the increase in fluid movement due to manipulation could have caused increased metabolite exchange and, as a result, fibrinolysis. Rats were not sedated during manipulation, and the force needed to mobilize abdominal contents did not elicit flinching or biting. In fact, the investigators noted during manipulation that the rats became calm and allowed deep palpation and treatment. The investigators suggested that visceral manipulation should be used immediately after a surgical procedure because adhesion formation is greatest at this time. Furthermore, the rats in the preventive group were noted to have increased signs of healing, including a general observation of overall improved ...
Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial-like endometrial cells, glands and stroma outside the uterus, causing a strong inflammatory-like microenvironment in the affected tissue. The exact prevalence of endometriosis is unknown, but the estimates range from 2-10 % of women of reproductive age, to 50 % of infertile women. Its etiopathogenesis of endometriosis still remains controversial: immune, hormonal, genetic, and epigenetic factors may be all involved, and several theories have been proposed to explain it.Endometriosis can cause several symptoms and signs, including acute and chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, abnormal vaginal bleeding, infertility/sterility and, in the severe stage, gastrointestinal and urological symptoms. Three main clinical presentations have been described: peritoneal endometriosis, endometriotic ovarian cysts (i.e., endometriomas), and deeply infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) .The latter is considered the most aggressive presentation of endometriosis
The peritoneum is one continuous sheet, forming two layers and a potential space between them: the peritoneal cavity.. The outer layer, the parietal peritoneum, is attached to the abdominal wall and the pelvic walls.[1] The tunica vaginalis, the serous membrane covering the male testis, is derived from the vaginal process, an outpouching of the parietal peritoneum.. The inner layer, the visceral peritoneum, is wrapped around the visceral organs, located inside the intraperitoneal space for protection. It is thinner than the parietal peritoneum. The mesentery is a double layer of visceral peritoneum that attaches to the gastrointestinal tract. There are often blood vessels, nerves, and other structures between these layers. The space between these two layers is technically outside of the peritoneal sac, and thus not in the peritoneal cavity.. The potential space between these two layers is the peritoneal cavity, filled with a small amount (about 50 mL) of slippery serous fluid that allows the two ...

The mechanisms underlying peritoneal dissemination of ovarian carcinoma are poorly understood. Ovarian carcinoma is a malignancy with an exceptionally high mortality rate (1), largely due to the lack of effective antimetastatic treatment approaches. A more detailed understanding of the mechanisms underlying the formation and development of EOC metastases could offer insights into how late stages of this disease might be effectively targeted. Proteins that are presented on the cell surface have consistently been considered attractive molecular targets for disease treatment. Our data suggest that a member of GPCR family, the chemokine fractalkine receptor, functions to support the prometastatic properties of EOC cells, which include migration, peritoneal adhesion, and proliferation. In addition, the fractalkine chemokine can support cell proliferation through another receptor, EGFR. Our data support the hypothesis that multiple types of ovarian carcinoma rely on fractalkine signaling for disease ...
A study undertaken over several years has indicated that the most extensive form of Endometriosis may be predicted by the severity of menstrual periods in teenage girls.. The extensive form of Endometriosis is know as Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis (DIE). There are three distinct forms of Endometriosis (not to be confused with different stages/levels): Superficial Endometriosis, Ovarian Endometriosis and Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis. DEep Infiltrating Endometriosis is the most extensive, women with this condition will usually have extensive deposits of Endometriosis leading to adhesions in multiple parts of the body, including the vagina, bladder and ligaments that attach the uterus to the pelvis.. It is not unusual for several years (or longer) to go before a woman is diagnosed with Endometriosis due to the difficulty in diagnosis (the only reliable way is still a laproscopy and direct examination of the endometrium cells) and the number of diseases that can be similar to Endometriosis or ...
Results: The mean age of women was 32.22±6.91. The mean serum CA-125 level was 49.93±4.30 U/mL. There was a significant correlation between the endometriosis stage, lesion size, adhesion score and preoperative CA-125 plasma concentration. However, we did not found significant differences in age, marital status, patients complaints, and pelvic pain associated to Ca125 serum level. The suggested preoperative serum cut-off levels in premenopausal and postmenopausal patients were 37 U/ml and 35 U/ml, respectively ...
Aims: It is generally considered that an unequivocal histological diagnosis of endometriosis requires the presence of endometrioid-type glands and endometrioid-type stroma. However, small nodules or plaques of endometrioid-type stroma without glands have been noticed by the authors in repeated peritoneal biopsies performed for suspected endometriosis. These are often, but not always, accompanied by typical endometriosis with glands. This form of endometriosis has been previously referred to as stromal or micronodular stromal endometriosis. However, there has been little reference to this condition in the literature.. Methods: In this study, there was a review of a large series (n = 274) of peritoneal biopsies with a diagnosis of endometriosis with a view to ascertaining the frequency of stromal endometriosis.. Results: Stromal endometriosis, characterised histologically by small microscopic nodules or plaques of endometrioid-type stroma, sometimes with a whorled pattern and prominent vascularity ...

  • Twenty-five percent of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis and 5% of hemodialysis patients switched type of dialysis. (
  • Also, more patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis than hemodialysis switched type of dialysis over time, and the reason for switching was often a consequence of the technique. (
  • Further studies are needed to evaluate a possible survival benefit of a timely change from peritoneal dialysis to hemodialysis. (
  • Contribution At 81 clinics in 19 states, 25% of the patients receiving peritoneal dialysis and 5% of those receiving hemodialysis switched methods at least once within 7 years. (
  • Patients initiating treatment with peritoneal dialysis appeared healthier and of higher socioeconomic status than did those receiving hemodialysis. (

  • Peritoneal dialysis patients, however, have more flexible fluid allowances than hemodialysis patients. (
  • Although thyroid dysfunction is associated with higher death risk in the general population and those undergoing hemodialysis, little is known about the effect of thyroid disease upon mortality in patients treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD). (
  • Identical National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) hematologic and iron targets apply to chronic kidney disease (CKD), peritoneal dialysis (PD), and hemodialysis (HD) patients, yet intravenous (i.v.) nondextran iron therapy is FDA approved only in HD patients. (
  • The eating plan for peritoneal dialysis may be less strict than the one for hemodialysis . (
  • Because you do peritoneal dialysis every day, there is less time for wastes and extra fluids to build up between treatments than between hemodialysis treatments. (
  • Survival on chronic peritoneal dialysis is similar to that on hemodialysis, although older diabetic patients on peritoneal dialysis may have a higher mortality rate. (
  • Hospitalizations and transfer off modality are more common in patients on chronic peritoneal dialysis compared with patients on hemodialysis. (
  • When chronic peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis are compared, subjective quality of life is generally higher with chronic peritoneal dialysis. (
  • In Chile, in 1994, 75% of the pediatric patients on dialysis were on hemodialysis, while in 1999, 75% were on peritoneal dialysis. (
  • To evaluate the effects of hemodialysis , peritoneal dialysis , and renal transplantation on the quality of life of patients with end-stage renal disease ( ESRD ) and analyze the influencing factors. (
  • A total of 162 ESRD patients who received maintenance hemodialysis , continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis , and renal transplantation from February 2017 to March 2018 in our hospital were divided into a hemodialysis group, a peritoneal dialysis group, and a renal transplantation group. (
  • The PCS and MCS scores of this group were higher than those of the hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis groups. (
  • The peritoneal dialysis group had higher scores for physical functioning, physical role , bodily pain , general health, mental health , PCS, and MCS than those of the hemodialysis group. (
  • In terms of quality of life , renal transplantation is superior to peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis . (
  • Of these 2.1 million, 10.8% of the patients are on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and the remaining 89.2% are on hemodialysis (HD)[1]. (
  • End stage renal disease (ESRD): percentage of all peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis patient-months with serum or plasma phosphorus measured at least once within the month. (
  • This measure is used to assess the percentage of all peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis patient-months with serum or plasma phosphorus measured at least once within the month. (
  • Preferred treatment is usually the more expensive and less logistically efficient in-clinic hemodialysis (HD) rather than the home kit peritoneal dialysis (PD). (
  • In the framework of the presented study, we have performed a pharmacoeconomic analysis of medical care for chronic kidney disease patients who need renal replacement therapy via peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. (
  • The study results demonstrates that the aggregate costs of peritoneal dialysis therapy, on the average, are lower than those of hemodialysis by 12 % due to the lower costs of treatment of the chronic kidney disease and renal replacement therapy related complications and lower indirect costs due to longer preservation of the capacity for work. (
  • Peritoneal dialysis demonstrated higher clinical effectiveness and lower aggregate costs and, as consequence, lower cost-utility ratio, i.e. demonstrated the advantages over hemodialysis. (

  • Fluid accumulation in the peritoneal cavity usually accompanies peritoneal diseases. (
  • Many diseases result in a buildup of fluid within the abdominal cavity. (
  • Our abdominal cavity and the organs within it are protected and lubricated by a fluid called the peritoneal or ascitic fluid. (
  • Your surgeon will make a small cut, often below and a little to the side of your belly button, and then guide the catheter through the slit into your peritoneal cavity . (
  • Between the visceral and parietal peritoneum is a potential space known as the peritoneal cavity . (
  • The peritoneum and peritoneal cavity are important parts of the human anatomy. (
  • Not all abdominopelvic organs are completely surrounded by peritoneum or housed within the peritoneal cavity . (
  • For example, the kidneys are known as retroperitoneal organs because it lies behind the peritoneal cavity and only the parietal peritoneum covers its anterior (front) surface. (
  • The bladder is a subperitoneal organ because it lies below the peritoneal cavity and its superior (top) surface is the only part covered by the parietal peritoneum. (
  • The inflamed peritoneum may give rise to excessive peritoneal fluid secretion that accumulates within the peritoneal cavity - this is known as ascites . (
  • Spontaneous peritonitis occurs when fluid builds up within the peritoneal cavity in diseases such as liver cirrhosis. (
  • Here the problem lies with balance between the amount of fluid being secreted into the cavity and the fluid being reabsorbed which normally maintains a minimal amount of peritoneal fluid. (
  • Peritonitis may be due to a number of diverse conditions that can arise within the peritoneal cavity or occur secondary to underlying diseases that are not associated specifically with the peritoneum or intra-peritoneal organs. (
  • 2007) argued that continued use of non-malignant terms, i.e., adenoma, for those frequent cases with low-grade features (such as DPAM), is misleading because pseudomyxoma peritonei is a disease state that results from invasion of the abdominal cavity by cells with uncontrolled growth. (
  • Another major disadvantage of peritoneal dialysis is that your risk of developing peritonitis (infection of the peritoneum) is increased. (
  • Benign and cancerous diseases can also develop in the peritoneum. (
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma is cancer of the peritoneum. (
  • Primary peritoneal serous carcinoma is another cancer of the peritoneum. (
  • Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a rare condition which is characterized by nodules or small lumps of smooth muscle cells located on the peritoneum (lining of the abdominal wall) and abdominal organs .The condition is usually benign (noncancerous) but in rare cases has become cancerous . (
  • However in some cases peritonitis occur on its own without any underlying disease that can directly irritate the peritoneum. (
  • Ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers are diseases in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or peritoneum. (
  • Primary peritoneal cancer is cancer that forms in the peritoneum and has not spread there from another part of the body. (
  • Cardiovascular complications are responsible for increased mortality and morbidity in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. (

(
  • Among the causes of mortality, cardiovascular disease corresponds to the 50% of the patients deaths on dialysis 7 . (
  • In addition, E/e' by Doppler was also demonstrated to be a prognostic factor for CV mortality which is extended to be applicable in the real disease as previously reported [ 4 - 8 ]. (
  • A high index of suspicion is required for the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis, as the analysis of peritoneal fluid for tuberculous bacillus is often ineffective, and may increase mortality due to delayed diagnosis. (
  • A high index of suspicion is required for diagnosis as analysis of peritoneal fluid for tuberculosis bacillus has not only proven to be ineffective, but also it may delay diagnosis, resulting in increased mortality [ 6 ]. (
  • This study aimed to report the prevalence of CKD-MBD and examine the impact of achieving target CKD-MBD parameters on morbidity and mortality one year after peritoneal dialysis (PD) initiation. (
  • Patients with chronic renal failure who are initiated on peritoneal dialysis (PD) have significant morbidity and mortality. (
  • 7 ) Several prognostic factors such as older age, the presence of comorbidities (e.g. diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease) and low serum albumin levels have been identified as predictors of short-term mortality among PD patients. (
  • 9 ) Yeoh and Sivaraman reported that ethnicity, the presence of ischaemic heart disease, an abnormal two-dimensional echocardiogram, low serum albumin and elevated serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) levels are important determinants of short-term mortality among incident PD patients in Singapore.

  • Peritoneal dialysis involves pumping dialysis fluid into the space inside the abdomen (tummy) to draw out waste products from the blood. (
  • Another advantage of peritoneal dialysis is that there are fewer restrictions on diet and fluid intake compared with haemodialys where there are strict limits on the amount of fluids that you can drink. (
  • Another drawback of peritoneal dialysis is that the dialysis fluid used can cause a reduction in protein levels, which can lead to a lack of energy and in some cases malnutrition. (
  • A liquid, peritoneal fluid, lubricates the surface of this tissue. (
  • Your doctor may use imaging tests or lab tests to analyze the peritoneal fluid to diagnose the problem. (
  • Peritoneal fluid analysis involving biochemistry, microbiology and cytology lab testing can play an important role in diagnosis of the underlying disease. (
  • However a variety of disease conditions can result in fluid build up of several litres (known as ascites ). (
  • A blood test, in order to measure the albumin in the blood serum, is required in tandem with the peritoneal fluid analysis. (
  • As well as the serum-albumin-ascites gradient, other parameters can be assessed in peritoneal fluid analysis. (
  • The results of peritoneal fluid analysis are only useful in diagnosis when taken together with a physical examination and understanding of the patients medical history. (
  • There are disorders which can give the appearance of peritoneal fluid build up (i.e. a distended abdomen), which a clinician will be careful to exclude from their diagnosis, such as an ovarian cyst or obesity. (
  • Three patients with EGFR mutations who developed peritoneal metastasis had documented resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in the ascitic fluid. (
  • Peritoneal dialysis (PD) removes waste and extra fluid through the blood vessels that line the walls of your abdomen. (
  • However, nephrologists may hesitate to use PD in patients with concomitant liver disease due to concerns such as protein losses with dialysate, increased risk of peritonitis (due to risk of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis), herniation and fluid leaks (due to higher intra-abdominal pressure), and impaired dexterity and frailty of this patient population. (
  • Peritoneal dialysis removes wastes and extra fluid from your body but doesn't maintain a perfect balance. (
  • No organs lies in this space but a small amount of peritoneal fluid provides lubrication for the two layers to rub against each other. (
  • This fluid may differ from the normal peritoneal fluid and can contain components like fibrin, pus, blood or cells which, when analyzed, can provide an indication to the cause of peritonitis. (
  • The tuberculosis work up on peritoneal fluid was negative. (
  • The aim of our study was to evaluate the behaviour of the human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) in the peritoneal fluid encountered in various female genital diseases. (
  • In group I there were no differences found in the HE4 concentrations in the peritoneal fluid, depending on the stage, grade, the presence of neoplastic cells and the peritoneal dissemination. (
  • The HE4 marker concentrations in the peritoneal fluid are highly irrespective of the pathology observed in the female sexual organ. (
  • Therefore, it seems that its determinations in the peritoneal fluid are completely useless in terms of diagnostics. (
  • Finally, those patients were qualified for the study, in whom during surgical treatment the peritoneal effusion and/or fluid from the ovarian tumor/cyst was available. (
  • Histological reevaluation showed characteristic features of epithelioid peritoneal mesothelioma and ruled out serous ovarian cancer. (
  • We enrolled 139 patients, 40 with ovarian cancer (group I), 82 with benign diseases (group II), and 17 with other malignant neoplasms (group III). (
  • The aim of our study was to evaluate the behaviour of the HE4 glycoprotein in the peritoneal effusion of patients with ovarian cancer and in other gynecological and non-gynecological diseases, as well as to assess its diagnostic usefulness. (
  • Patients who had indications for surgery were qualified as eligible for the study: i.e. patients with suspected ovarian cancer, other non-ovarian neoplasms, and patients with potentially benign gynecological diseases. (
  • Most published studies for ovarian cancer use the time to some disease events as their primary outcome and hence, statistical methods developed for survival data are usually applied. (
  • In usual condition, ovarian cancer often presents a protracted disease course, and it is not uncommon to see a patient dies of other causes (e.g., heart failure and stroke), which precludes the occurrence of cancer-specific death. (
  • The protein loss does reduce over time to levels comparable to those without cirrhosis which may be explained by counterpressure exerted on the peritoneal membrane by the dialysate with reduced ascites formation. (
