• cancers
  • Gastric MALToma is uncommon and accounts for 1% to 5% of all gastric cancers. (hkmj.org)
  • What was called moderate to severe dysplasia was associated with 40-100% of early gastric cancers and was found adjacent to 5-80% of advanced adenocarcinomas, suggesting a direct role in cancer formation. (bmj.com)
  • peptic ulcer
  • Cheney (13) verified that the patients who utilized the fresh cabbage juice obtained a healing action for gastric disorders, particularly for the peptic ulcer, presenting healing effects of the lesion. (scielo.br)
  • However, there are many other stomach diseases that don't include the word "gastropathy" such as gastric or peptic ulcer disease, gastroparesis, and dyspepsia. (wikipedia.org)
  • gastrointestinal
  • The gastric mucosa's function is regulated by many intrinsic (neural, hormonal, immunological, genetic etc. regulations) and extrinsic (different foods or food components, xenobiotics, chemical agents, physical actions) factors, that directly reach the gastric mucosa in both healthy subjects and in patients with gastrointestinal or other diseases. (openaccessbooks.com)
  • On this background we review the current concepts and contemporary issues related to gastric dysplasia and early invasive carcinoma, their definition, classification, grading, natural history, potential therapy, and outline some of the recent efforts to harmonise the differences in terminology between Japanese and Western pathologists in order to produce a single classification system that would potentially be applicable throughout the gastrointestinal tract. (bmj.com)
  • Hematemesis, in contrast to coffee ground vomitus, suggests that upper gastrointestinal bleeding is more acute or more severe, for example due to Mallory-Weiss tear), gastric ulcer or Dieulafoy, or esophageal varices. (wikipedia.org)
  • Barium X-ray examinations are useful tools for the study of appearance and function of the parts of the gastrointestinal tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosal
  • Gastritis can be diagnosed by the patient's symptoms and history (for example, NSAID and/or alcohol consumption), or by breath, blood, stool , immunological, and biopsy tests to detect H. pylori and other tests such as endoscopy or radiologic studies demonstrate mucosal changes. (medicinenet.com)
  • Smears and sections were obtained from various labelled points on the mucosal surface of 25 freshly-excised stomachs, and the appearances were compared. (mysciencework.com)
  • Under ME in combination with NBI, a non-structural area, ie, complete or almost-complete disappearance of gastric crypt epithelium and abnormal mucosal capillary pattern was identified ( Fig 1a ). (hkmj.org)
  • mucous
  • The gastric mucosa is the mucous membrane layer of the stomach which contains the glands and the gastric pits. (wikipedia.org)
  • When examined with a lens, the inner surface of the mucous membrane presents a peculiar honeycomb appearance from being covered with funnel-like depressions or foveolae of a polygonal or hexagonal form, which vary from 0.12 to 0.25 mm. in diameter. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs include acute onset of moderate to severe pain, large volumes of gastric reflux (4-20 L per decompression) which is usually orange-brown and fetid, distended small intestine (up to 5-7 cm in diameter) palpable on rectal examination, fever, depression, increased heart rate (>60 bpm), increased respiratory rate, prolonged CRT, and darkened mucous membranes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Crohn's
  • However, there are many other causes like other infectious agents, autoimmune problems, diseases like Crohn's disease, sarcoidosis , and isolated granulomatosis gastritis. (medicinenet.com)
  • The frequency of gastric Crohn's disease has been considered low. (bmj.com)
  • H pylori negative 'Crohn's gastritis' seems to be associated with active Crohn's disease. (bmj.com)
  • glands
  • The glands are elongated with a corkscrew-like appearance and cystic dilation is common. (wikipedia.org)
  • These are the ducts of the gastric glands, and at the bottom of each may be seen one or more minute orifices, the openings of the gland tubes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastric glands are simple or branched tubular glands that emerge on the deeper part of the gastric foveola, inside the gastric areas and outlined by the folds of the mucosa. (wikipedia.org)
  • 1881 Klebs notes the presence of bacteria-like organisms in the lumen of the gastric glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • carcinoma
  • 5 Thus, the relevance of standardising the diagnostic criteria for gastric dysplasia and early invasive carcinoma, and of refining our understanding of its natural history have become increasingly important. (bmj.com)
  • ileus
  • The production of fluid is thought to be due to active hypersecretion, passive secretion of proteins secondary to damage to epithelium of the mucosa and capillaries, and a functional ileus which prevents removal of this fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disorders
  • capitata (AEB) in order to validate ethnobotanical claims regarding the plant use in the gastric disorders. (scielo.br)
  • The AEB demonstrated good antiulcerogenic activities which justify the inclusion of this plant in the management of gastric disorders. (scielo.br)
  • occur
  • Gastritis may also occur in those who have had weight loss surgery resulting in the banding or reconstruction of the digestive tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • this can occur due to bleeding directly from a gastric ulcer, or from damage to the esophagus from severe/continuing vomiting. (wikipedia.org)
