This study evaluates antral ultrasonography for the diagnosis of full stomach before surgical emergencies in pediatric population. Preoperative ultrasonographic antral evaluation is compared to peroperative gastric aspirate with nasogastric tube.

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

Anesthesiologists try to avoid complications with significant peri -operative morbidity and mortality such as bronchoaspiration in patients requiring a surgical procedure under anesthesia....

Qualitative and quantitative ultrasound assessment of gastric content.

Pulmonary aspiration of the gastric contents is one of the most feared complications in anesthesia. Its prevention depends on preoperative fasting as well as identification of risky patients. A reliab...

Association between frailty and readmission within one year after gastrectomy in older patients with gastric cancer.

The incidence of gastric cancer in older people is increasing. Because older patients are at increased risk of postoperative complications and mortality, preoperative risk assessment in this populatio...

The newborn rat gastric emptying rate is volume and not developmentally dependent.

Gastric residuals are a common finding in enterally fed preterm neonates and traditionally thought to reflect immaturity-related delayed gastric emptying. Adult human data suggest that the meal volume...

Limitations in the use of 18F-FDG PET in the pre-operative staging of gastric cancer: A case series.

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a mainstay in the preoperative evaluation of various cancers. In gastric cancer however, its role in the initial staging remains contentious. Presented is a case ...

The risk of gastric cancer in patients with gastric intestinal metaplasia in 5-year follow-up.

Gastric intestinal metaplasia (GIM) is the premalignant stage of gastric cancer; however, consensus on its management has not been established.

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.
