An endometrial biopsy involves a thin tube being passed through the cervix (opening of the uterus) to obtain a sample of the lining of the uterus. Sometimes there may be discomfort with this procedure especially if the cervix is not dilated or opened. Previous research has suggested that taking a drug called misoprostol may help the cervix to start to dilate or open. This s...

Enteral Nutrition in Liver Cirrhosis

Added: 21:48 EDT 23 Jul 2014

Malnutrition is frequently occurring in patients with liver cirrhosis and is associated with a poorer outcome, as it determines life quality and affects both morbidity and mortality. Long term prognosis after liver transplantation also depends on the nutritional status. Therefore, the early diagnosis and intervention for malnutrition is an important issue in the clinical ...

Patients with congestive heart failure are usually treated with a combination of an ACE inhibitor (or an AT1 blocking agent), a diuretic and a beta-blocker. However, some patients remain symptomatic despite an optimal treatment with these drugs. In patients who also have coronary heart disease, nitrates or some calcium-channel blockers could help to relieve symptoms. Theref...

Exercise intolerance and reduced health status have been found in patients with sarcoidosis and has been related to skeletal muscle weakness. The present researchers reason that skeletal muscle weakness is, at least in part, related to physical inactivity and therefore partially reversible following a structured exercise training program. Nevertheless, the effects of exerci...
