Acute esophageal necrosis (AEN) is a rare condition characterized by circumferential necrosis of varying lengths in the intrathoracic esophagus. Endoscopically, this process is manifested as a black e...
Cisplatin-based chemotherapy is currently the standard treatment for locally advanced esophageal cancer. Cisplatin has been shown to induce both apoptosis and necrosis in cancer cells, but the mechani...
Esophageal perforation is a serious condition with a high mortality rate. Delayed detection of esophageal perforation may result in devastating complications such as mediastinitis and pericarditis. Es...
Acute pancreatitis is a severe and frequently life-threatening disease, which can lead to pancreatic necrosis, acute lung injury, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, and other complications. In t...
To determine the response to treatment with a novel esophageal stent loaded with 125I seeds for intraluminal brachytherapy versus a conventional covered stent in patients with advanced eso...
Previous studies showed that combination of endoscopic therapy with vasoconstrictor is better than either vasoconstrictor or endoscopic therapy alone in achieving the successful hemostatsi...
This study uses the cholesterol lowering drug atorvastatin, also known as lipitor, to show reduction of avascular necrosis in steroid treated lupus patients. Avascular necrosis is a diseas...
Hypothesis 1- Using IMRT, the RT dose can be safely escalated from 58 Gy to 74 Gy given as 6 fractions/week with concurrent chemotherapy. Hypothesis 2- Esophageal motion can be used to cu...
Metabolic syndrome is associated with increased inflammatory cytokines and reduced adiponectin, that may be mediated in part by TNF production from abdominal fat. We reasoned that an anti-...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A mild form of LIMITED SCLERODERMA, a multi-system disorder. Its features include symptoms of CALCINOSIS; RAYNAUD DISEASE; ESOPHAGEAL MOTILITY DISORDERS; sclerodactyly, and TELANGIECTASIS. When the defect in esophageal function is not prominent, it is known as CRST syndrome.
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.
A syndrome of DYSPHAGIA with IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA that is due to congenital anomalies in the ESOPHAGUS (such as cervical esophageal webs). It is known as Patterson-Kelly syndrome in the United Kingdom.
A syndrome that is associated with microvascular diseases of the KIDNEY, such as RENAL CORTICAL NECROSIS. It is characterized by hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC); THROMBOCYTOPENIA; and ACUTE RENAL FAILURE.
