Spinal hemangiomas, though frequent in the vertebrae, are rare in the spinal canal with only slightly over 100 purely epidural cases reported to date, most of them classified as either cavernous or ca...
Varices are one of the main clinical manifestations of cirrhosis and portal hypertension. Gastric varices are less common than esophageal varices but are often associated with poorer prognosis, mainly...
Right colonic Diverticulitis (RD) is rare in Europe; few studies have focused on it and its management is not standardised. The aim of this study was to analyse the clinical presentation (complicated,...
The development of cirrhosis with resultant portal hypertension can lead to oesophageal varices at a rate of 7% per annum. Bleeding from varices happens when the portal pressure is ≥12 mm Hg and can...
The natural history and classification systems of small varices (≤ 5 mm in diameter) in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension are summarized. Studies that assessed the course of and therape...
This study will attempt to determine how common liver hemangiomas are in children with infantile hemangiomas by comparing liver ultrasound results in patients with 1-4 cutaneous hemangioma...
Gaastric varices occur in 5-33% of patients with portal hypertension. Concomitant gastro esophageal varices are the most common type. Both endoscopic sclerotherapy and band ligation are ve...
Hemangiomas are relatively common lesions in infants. Most go away spontaneously after one year of life and do not need treatment. Others require treatment because they cause significant...
The aim of this study is to assess the accuracy of the detachable string magnetically controlled capsule endoscopy (DS-MCE) in identifying and grading gastroesophageal varices in patients ...
To develop a non-invasive, simple and affordable, measurement technique to differentiate hemangiomas from subtypes of VMS. The purpose of this study is to determine the best office based ...
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
Chemical agents injected into blood vessels and lymphatic sinuses to shrink or cause localized THROMBOSIS; FIBROSIS, and obliteration of the vessels. This treatment is applied in a number of conditions such as VARICOSE VEINS; HEMORRHOIDS; GASTRIC VARICES; ESOPHAGEAL VARICES; PEPTIC ULCER HEMORRHAGE.
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
A neoplasm derived from blood vessels, characterized by numerous prominent endothelial cells that occur singly, in aggregates, and as the lining of congeries of vascular tubes or channels. Hemangioendotheliomas are relatively rare and are of intermediate malignancy (between benign hemangiomas and conventional angiosarcomas). They affect men and women about equally and rarely develop in childhood. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1866)
Class I-restricted activation of CD8-POSITIVE LYMPHOCYTES resulting from ANTIGEN PRESENTATION of exogenous ANTIGENS (cross-presentation). This is in contrast to normal activation of these lymphocytes (direct-priming) which results from presentation of endogenous antigens.
