Identification of Celiac Ganglia

2014-07-23 21:11:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Computer-aided image recognition will improve the technique of endoscopic ultrasound-celiac plexus block/celiac plexus neurolysis (EUS-CPB/CPN) and improved pain relief.

Description

All subjects who are undergoing EUS will be eligible. Consecutive patients undergoing EUS will be invited to participate in this study. Subjects must be 18 years old or above at the time of the procedure.

Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Celiac Plexus Block for Treatment of Pain in Chronic Pancreatitis

AIM: To compare pain relief in patients randomly assigned to endoscopic ultrasound-guided celiac ganglia block (EUS-CGB) vs standard endoscopic ultrasound-guided celiac plexus block (EUS-C...

Trial of Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) - Guided Celiac Plexus Neurolysis

Pancreatic cancer presents with pain in the majority of cases. Destruction of the celiac ganglia by ultrasound guided injection of sclerosing agents such as alcohol is sometimes used for p...

Can a Very High Result From a Screening Test for Celiac Disease be Used to Diagnose Celiac Disease?

This study is to see if a high response to the TTG screening test for celiac disease is as accurate as the current method of diagnosing celiac disease which entails a general anesthetic an...

Clinical, Neurophysiological and Radiological Evaluation of Patients With Basal Ganglia Lesions

Basal ganglia are involved in the control of motor, cognitive and emotional behaviours. The aim of this study is to precisely evaluate patients with basal ganglia focal lesions both with o...

Evidence-based Screening Strategies for Celiac Disease

Main aim: To find evidence-based screening strategies for celiac disease in high risk groups and to find new biomarkers or biomarker combinations for celiac disease diagnostics and follow-...

Accuracy of Endoscopic Ultrasound Imaging in Distinguishing Celiac Ganglia from Celiac Lymph Nodes.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) allows visualization of celiac lymph nodes (CLNs) and celiac ganglia (CG). Reliably distinguishing these structures is important for tumor staging and CG ablative therapies...

PREVALENCE OF CELIAC DISEASE PREDISPOSING GENOTYPES, INCLUDING HLA-DQ2.2 VARIANT, IN BRAZILIAN CHILDREN.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. Almost all celiac patients carry immune recognition genes coding for HLA-DQ2.5 ...

Functional Anatomy of Basal Ganglia Circuits with the Cerebral Cortex and the Cerebellum.

The neural connections of the basal ganglia provide important insights into their function. Here, we discuss the current perspective on basal ganglia connections with the cerebral cortex and with the ...

Celiac Disease and Wheat Allergy: A Growing Association?

Celiac disease and wheat allergy (WA) are infrequent diseases in the general population, and a combination of the 2 is particularly rare. Celiac disease occurs in around 1% of the general population a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ganglia of the sympathetic nervous system including the paravertebral and the prevertebral ganglia. Among these are the sympathetic chain ganglia, the superior, middle, and inferior cervical ganglia, and the aorticorenal, celiac, and stellate ganglia.

The major nerves supplying sympathetic innervation to the abdomen. The greater, lesser, and lowest (or smallest) splanchnic nerves are formed by preganglionic fibers from the spinal cord which pass through the paravertebral ganglia and then to the celiac ganglia and plexuses. The lumbar splanchnic nerves carry fibers which pass through the lumbar paravertebral ganglia to the mesenteric and hypogastric ganglia.

A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.

Ganglia of the parasympathetic nervous system, including the ciliary, pterygopalatine, submandibular, and otic ganglia in the cranial region and intrinsic (terminal) ganglia associated with target organs in the thorax and abdomen.

Clusters of neurons and their processes in the autonomic nervous system. In the autonomic ganglia, the preganglionic fibers from the central nervous system synapse onto the neurons whose axons are the postganglionic fibers innervating target organs. The ganglia also contain intrinsic neurons and supporting cells and preganglionic fibers passing through to other ganglia.
