Methamphetamine use is a rare cause of intestinal ischemia but is of clinical significance due to its high morbidity and mortality. Knowledge of methamphetamine-induced intestinal ischemia has been limited to few case reports.
This article was published in the following journal.

Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) is a type of acute intestinal ischemia, and its associated mortality is very high. In laparotomy of NOMI, we often have difficulty determining the area of bowe...
Interleukin-6 (IL6) has both proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory pathways, but its effects on intestinal recovery following ischemia are unknown. We hypothesized that administration of IL6 following...
Intestinal duplication, a congenital malformation, is considered a rare condition, particularly in adults. Although it affects young children, a minority of patients remains asymptomatic until adultho...
Intestinal malrotation refers to a variety of abnormalities which occur between weeks 5-12 of embryological development. Most presentations occur before the first year of life. However, patients persi...
Intestinal intussusception is a relatively common cause of bowel obstruction in children, however, it is a rare clinical entity in adults. When seen in adults, it is often caused by some underlying co...
This study is to assess the efficacy of bupropion in reducing methamphetamine use in subjects with methamphetamine dependence who report using methamphetamine 18 or less days during the 30...
This clinical trial will compare 10 week treatment with acamprosate (2 gr/day) versus placebo, combined with weekly abstinence oriented individual counseling, in methamphetamine dependent ...
The intent of this study is to see if the rate that the body breaks down l-methamphetamine (l-MA) could be used as an accurate estimate for the rate that the body breaks down d-methampheta...
This is the first study of pomaglumetad in humans using methamphetamine. The goal of the study is to determine if pomaglumetad is safe when administered with methamphetamine. If shown to b...
The purpose of this study is to find out if GVG can reduce drug use and determine safety and effects of GVG when used together with methamphetamine. This study involves staying in the hosp...
Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
Ischemic tissue injury produced by insufficient perfusion of intestinal tissue by the MESENTERIC CIRCULATION (i.e., CELIAC ARTERY; SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; INFERERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY; and MESENTERIC VEINS). It can progress from ISCHEMIA; EDEMA; and GANGRENE of the bowel wall to PERITONITIS and cardiovascular collapse.
A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
A disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow (ISCHEMIA) to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. Prolonged hypoxia-ischemia is associated with ISCHEMIC ATTACK, TRANSIENT; BRAIN INFARCTION; BRAIN EDEMA; COMA; and other conditions.
Dilatation of the intestinal lymphatic system usually caused by an obstruction in the intestinal wall. It may be congenital or acquired and is characterized by DIARRHEA; HYPOPROTEINEMIA; peripheral and/or abdominal EDEMA; and PROTEIN-LOSING ENTEROPATHIES.
