There is a high incidence among the first degree relatives of the carcinoid patients, indicating the involvement of genetic components in its initiation and pathogenesis.
This is a prospective phase II open-label trial, stratifying patients equally into two cohorts consisting of carcinoid tumors and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The purpose of t...
- According to Martin F et al, AKT is highly phosphorylated in phenochromocytoma but not in benign adrenocortical tumors. - In nonfunctioning carcinoid, the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether monthly injections of Somatuline Depot are effective and safe in controlling diarrhea and flushing in patients with carcinoid syndrome.
This study will examine whether the new investigational drug EPO906, given by intravenous infusion (IV directly into the vein), is effective in shrinking tumors and preventing the growth o...
In patients with carcinoid syndrome, the development of carcinoid valve disease typically carries an unfavorable prognosis. We present the case of a patient with significant valvular dysfunction secon...
To describe the early outcomes of carcinoid patients undergoing surgical heart valve replacement.
Pulmonary carcinoid tumors account for up to 5% of all lung malignancies in adults, comprise 30% of all carcinoid malignancies, and are defined histologically as typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical ca...
Gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours, despite their low malignant potential, frequently metastasize to the liver. While liver resection improves survival and provides symptomatic relief, multifocal bilo...
Despite the high prevalence of rheumatic heart disease in Brazil, the occurrence of functional impairment in children and adolescents with rheumatic heart disease is not clear. The aim of this study w...
A symptom complex associated with CARCINOID TUMOR and characterized by attacks of severe flushing of the skin, diarrheal watery stools, bronchoconstriction, sudden drops in blood pressure, edema, and ascites. The carcinoid tumors are usually located in the gastrointestinal tract and metastasize to the liver. Symptoms are caused by tumor secretion of serotonin, prostaglandins, and other biologically active substances. Cardiac manifestations constitute CARCINOID HEART DISEASE. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.
Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.
Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
