Long-Term Prognosis of Patients with Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding: A Retrospective Cohort Study.

We evaluated the long-term prognosis of patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) who underwent capsule endoscopy (CE).

Predictive Factors for Rebleeding after Negative Capsule Endoscopy among Patients with Overt Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding.

Although capsule endoscopy (CE) is useful to evaluate obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB), CE does not always identify the responsible lesions in patients with overt OGIB.

Carvedilol versus traditional, non-selective beta-blockers for adults with cirrhosis and gastroesophageal varices.

Non-selective beta-blockers are recommended for the prevention of bleeding in people with cirrhosis, portal hypertension and gastroesophageal varices. Carvedilol is a non-selective beta-blocker with a...

Clinical Features of Idiopathic Portal Hypertension in China: A Retrospective Study of 338 Patients and Literature Review.

Idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH) refers to a relatively rare condition characterized by intrahepatic portal hypertension in the absence of underlying disease such as liver cirrhosis.

A History of Malignancy and Relevant Symptoms May Predict a Positive CT Enterography in Obscure GI Bleeds.

This study aimed to assess the clinical utility of computed tomography enterography (CTE) and identify factors associated with a diagnostic CTE for patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGI...

Clinical Trials [7796 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Diagnostic Evaluation of Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Up to 5% of patients with recurrent gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding remain undiagnosed by EGD and colonoscopy, the presumed source of bleeding in these patients being the small intestine. T...

Occult Obscure Gastrointestinal Bleeding

To test the activity of a polyglucosamine (PG) together with a Standard Management protocol (SM) on the occult and obscure gastrointestinal bleeding (OGIB) and the clinical symptoms in pat...

Predictors of Variceal Bleeding in Egyptian Patients With Non-Cirrhotic Portal Hypertension

Background & Aims: Non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (NCPH) represents a relatively infrequent group of conditions. This work aimed at determining causes of NCPH and evaluating the role of...

Capsule Endoscopy in Obscure GI Bleeding

The purpose of this study is to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of wireless capsule endoscopy in the investigation of patients with overt obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. To inform...

Transfusion Requirements in GI Bleeding

Recently it has been suggested that a restrictive transfusion of units of Red Cells (URC) may improve the outcome of ICU patients with anemia. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Dilated blood vessels in the ESOPHAGUS or GASTRIC FUNDUS that shunt blood from the portal circulation (PORTAL SYSTEM) to the systemic venous circulation. Often they are observed in individuals with portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).

Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.

Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.

A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.
