Pancreatitis is a common exocrine pancreatic disease in dogs, and the pancreatic lipase immunoreactivity (PLI) test is used for diagnosis. Enzyme catalytic assay is thought to have low specificity, but a lipase activity assay with increased specificity has been developed in human clinical chemistry. We measured serum lipase activity of 65 client-owned dogs using the newly developed FUJI DRI-CHEM slide and compared the results with their PLI concentrations. The results showed a good correlation (r = 0.91), and the normal and pancreatitis dogs identified based on the PLI values were correctly separated based on lipase activity...

Malabsorptive bariatric procedures have a long history beginning with jejunoileal bypass, which was first performed in 1950s. The biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) has gained more prominence in Europe since its introduction by Scopinaro in 1976 The BPD has been modified and popularized by Hess in the United States and Marceau in Canada to include a sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch in order to decrease the incidence of marginal ulceration and iron deficiency anemia. Moreover the common channel was lengthened to 100 cm to decrease the incidence of long-term malnutrition...

OBJECTIVE: It is unclear why pancreatitis progresses either to mild edematous disease or to severe necrotic disease. The aim of the study was to shed some light on this topic by investigating differences during the early stages of necrotic and edematous pancreatitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Piglets were randomized into two groups. Necrotic pancreatitis was induced with retrograde injection of 20% taurocholic acid (1 ml/kg), and edematous pancreatitis was induced with 0...

Normally, the spleen is located in the left hypochondrium. It is attached by the gastrosplenic and splenorenal ligaments. Its tissue composition made up of red pulp and white pulp explains the heterogenous aspect when contrast medium is injected in the arterial phase. This can make it difficult to detect intrasplenic masses. The adult spleen has no lobulations or incisures; however, the persistence of fissures separating the fetal spleen's lobules can indicate splenic lacerations in a trauma context. The ectopic spleen is a migration of the spleen from its normal anatomic location because its ligaments have not developed properly...

Intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) of the pancreas have recently been defined and classified by the World Health Organization. In addition, many cases of IPMN continue to be recognized frequently. We report a case of a 65-year-old female who underwent surgical resection of the pancreas twice within a period of 6 months for primary and recurrent IPMN. We first performed distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy for IPMN in the pacreatic body. A histopathological study revealed invasive adenocarcinoma and the negative margin of the pancreatic duct...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to evaluate the indications, and the safety and efficacy of operative laparoscopy in pregnancy with a particular attention to the pregnancy outcome. RECENT FINDINGS: Hemodynamics changes during laparoscopic surgery in pregnancy are similar to those observed in the nonpregnant state. The procedure appears to be safe and reduces hospital admissions and frequency of premature labor. The safest time to perform laparoscopic surgery in pregnancy is at the second trimester...

Traditionally, cholecystectomy in cirrhotic patients has been reserved for patients with severe biliary disease, because of the high morbidity and mortality in cirrhotic patients undergoing this procedure. Laparoscopic cholecytectomy (LC) was originally contraindicated in cirrhotic patients because of the associated portal hypertension and coagulopathy. This study examined the safety of LC in Child's class A patients.A review was conducted of all patients with cirrhosis who underwent cholecystectomy at our hospital between 1990 and 1998...

BACKGROUND: Detection of metastatic liver disease and malignant involvement of major peripancreatic vessels is important to determine resectability of pacreatic malignancy. Computed tomography with arterial portography (CTAP) is the most sensitive method for detection of colorectal liver metastases; it can also detect malignant vascular involvement. We have assessed CTAP in patients with pancreatic cancer considered suitable for resection after standard ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) examination...

The difference products (DP) of representational difference analyses (RDA) were used as hybridization probes on cDNA arrays. The effectivity of RDA products obtained with increasing driver/tester ratios (DP 1 = 100:1, DP 2 = 800:1 and DP 3 = 400,000:1) to isolate differentially expressed genes was compared with the effectivity of conventional differential hybridizations. Pacreatic cancer and control tissues were used as a test system to isolate differentially expressed genes. The use of RDA products as hybridization probes showed two major advantages: (i) a reliable identification of true differential signals; and (ii) only one autoradiograph had to be analyzed, which eliminated the need for a laborious subtraction of signal intensities obtained with different cDNA probes...

Insulin dependent (type 1) diabetes mellitus appears to be a genetically determined autoimmune disease. Gangliosides have been implicated in type 1 diabetes as antigenic determinants recognized by islet cell antibodies (ICA) and shown to be able to modulate autoimmune phenomena in experimental diabetes. In order to explore in type 1 diabetes the humoral immune reactivity against gangliosides, taking into account their pancreatic localization and molecular characteristics, antibodies to gangliosides GM3, GM2, GM1, GD3, GD1a, GD1b, and GT1b have been investigated in sera from new onset type 1 diabetics and relatives of type 1 diabetic patients with or without insulin (CIAA) and/or islet cell autoantibodies...

Digestive enzymatic activities (disaccharidases, alkaline phosphatase, peptide hydrolases) have been determined in the mucosa of 14 patients with chronic pancreatitis. All had an abnormal secretin-pancreozymin test. Four patients had insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, four a pathological glucose tolerance test. Nine patients had steatorrhoea. Maltase, sucrase, and alkaline phosphatase activity was significantly elevated in patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, whereas those of lactase, trehalase, and peptide hydrolase were normal...

Six cases of pancreatitis following spinal cord injury are presented. No single, etiologically accepted mechanism already postulated to cause pancreatitis can account for all the cases reported. The authors hypothesize that spinal cord disruption may produce pacreatitis by sympathetic-parasympathetic nervous system imbalance resulting in over-stimulation of the sphincter of Oddi. This may lead to stasis of secretions with absorption of amylase into the systemic circulation, and structural pancreatic damage...

Pancreatic extract (PE) contained small-molecular, thermo-stable as well as macro-molecular, thermo-labile factors capable of reducing the uptake of 57CoB12 bound to rat intrinsic factor by perfused rat intestinal segments (p less than 0.01 and p less than 0.01). Neither non-radioactive vitamin B12 nor non-pacreatic protein reduced the 57CoB12-uptake (p greater than 0.5 and p greater than 0.1) Crystalline trypsin and trypsinogen, but not chymotrypsin, also inhibited the uptake (p less than 0.05, p less than 0...
