Verification of Correct Positioning of a Gastric Tube by Ultrasonography

There are several ways to verify the correct positioning of a gastric tube. Radiography is considered the reference method. The use of ultrasonography could diminish the number of radiogra...

Gastric Ultrasound in Paediatric Anaesthesia

Anesthesia for emergency surgery is a situation at risk of pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents. It has been previously reported that bedside two-dimensional ultrasonography can be a u...

Multicentric Randomised Trial for Resectable Gastric Cancer

The CRITICS-II trial aims to identify the optimal preoperative regimen in resectable gastric cancer by comparing three investigational treatment arms: chemotherapy vs. chemotherapy and sub...

Identification of Changes in Gastric Volume and Content by Ultrasound Before and After Chewing Gum

To identify by ultrasound the possible changes in gastric volume and content after chewing gum for an hour in volunteers with complete fasting (more than 8 hours).

Ultrasound Assessment of Gastric Content and Volume

Three-dimensional reconstruction of vascular arrangement including the hepatic artery and left gastric vein during gastric surgery.

During gastric surgery, precise recognition of the anatomical variations and relationships among gastric tumors and vessels, including the hepatic artery (HA) and left gastric vein (LGV), is required....

A phase II study of preoperative chemotherapy with docetaxel, cisplatin, and S-1 followed by gastrectomy with D2 plus para-aortic lymph node dissection for gastric cancer with extensive lymph node metastasis: JCOG1002.

Gastric cancer with extensive lymph node metastasis is commonly considered unresectable, with a poor prognosis. We previously reported the results of the use of cisplatin and S-1 as preoperative chemo...

The role of endoscopic ultrasound on the preoperative T staging of gastric cancer: A retrospective study.

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is used for preoperative assessment of gastric cancer. However, recent studies suggested that EUS staging accuracy is lower than previously thought. We aimed to assess...

Gastric ultrasound as a preoperative bedside test for residual gastric contents volume in children.

Emergency situations and conditions with impaired gastric emptying enhance the risk of perioperative pulmonary aspiration due to increased residual gastric contents volume (GCV). Gastric ultrasonograp...

Oral Contrast-Enhanced Gastric Ultrasonography in the Assessment of Gastric Lesions: A Large-Scale Multicenter Study.

To determine the diagnostic efficiency of oral contrast-enhanced gastric ultrasonography in the evaluation of gastric lesions, based on large-scale multicenter study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.

Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.

Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.

A synthetic methylprostaglandin E1 analog that reduces gastric acid secretion and enhances the gastric mucus-bicarbonate barrier. It is effective in the therapy of gastric ulcers and gives significant protection against NSAID-induced gastric mucosal damage. The drug also prevents cyclosporin A-induced damage to endocrine and exocrine pancreatic secretions. It shows a low order of acute toxicity and there is no evidence of embryotoxicity, fetotoxicity, teratogenicity, or mutagenicity in animal studies.

A subtype of cholecystokinin receptor found primarily in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and the GASTRIC MUCOSA. It may play a role as a neuromodulator of dopaminergic neurotransmission the regulation of GASTRIC ACID secretion from GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS.
