• curve
  • Region of interest to be generated over stomach region, after verifying with the surgeon initially for standardization Now Geometric mean of counts calculated from the stomach and used to generate the time activity curve, percentage emptying at different time intervals and T1/2 to be calculated. (knowcancer.com)
  • A splenectomy is initially performed and is followed by devascularization of the distal esophagus through the diaphragm hiatus and the superior two-thirds of the major and lesser gastric curve taking careful consideration to not ligate the left gastric vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • obstruction
  • If there was clinical suspicion of gastric outlet obstruction, Ryle's tube was placed and output recorded. (knowcancer.com)
  • If mechanical cause for gastric outlet obstruction was suspected, then contrast study and/or gastroscopy was done to confirm. (knowcancer.com)
  • Patients
  • HealthDay News) - Pasta enriched with biologically active isoflavone aglycons significantly improves gastric emptying time in patients with type 2 diabetes , according to a pilot study published online July 8 in Diabetes Care . (empr.com)
  • Kenneth D.R. Setchell, PhD, from Cincinnati Children's Hospital, and colleagues randomized 10 patients with delayed gastric emptying to consume one serving per day of soy germ pasta and conventional pasta for eight weeks, with a four-week washout. (empr.com)
  • Adjustable gastric band surgery is an example of bariatric surgery designed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater-or between 35 and 40 in cases of patients with certain comorbidities that are known to improve with weight loss, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension (high blood pressure), or metabolic syndrome, among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • In February 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded approval of adjustable gastric bands to patients with a BMI between 30 and 40 and one weight-related medical condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • methods
  • However, an adjustable gastric band may be used only after other methods such as diet and exercise have been tried. (wikipedia.org)
  • studies
  • Although some studies indicated that larger sized dosage forms may require additional time for gastric emptying, others suggested that the size, shape, or volume of the tablet possess no significant effects instead. (wikipedia.org)
  • food
  • When the stomach is unable to empty its contents, the food and acid may travel back up the esophagus. (hubpages.com)
  • The purpose of this research is to see if there are differences between children who have FD and children without FD in the ability of the stomach to empty food and/or in ghrelin hormone levels before and after eating. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • One possible explanation for having FD is a delay in the emptying of food from the stomach, or delayed gastric (stomach) emptying. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Further, hormonal changes occur before, during, or after eating food that appear to impact stomach emptying. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, commonly called a lap-band, A band, or LAGB, is an inflatable silicone device placed around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, intended to slow consumption of food and thus reduce the amount of food consumed. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • citation needed] However, gastric banding is the least invasive surgery of its kind and is completely reversible, with another "keyhole" operation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastric banding is performed using laparoscopic surgery and usually results in a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, smaller scars, and less pain than open surgical procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • The procedure consists primarily of paraesophagogastric devascularization achieved by dividing the perforating veins of the esophagus and the stomach while maintaining the plexus of collaterals that connect the coronary gastric vein to the azygous system. (wikipedia.org)
