INTRODUCTION: The aorto-enteric fistula (AEF) is a direct communication between aorta and intestinal lumen. There are primary and secondary forms. Primary AEFs are usually due to erosion of an aortic aneurysm (AAA) into the intestine, while secondary forms are caused by reconstructive procedures on the abdominal aorta. The incidence of primary AEF ranges from 0.1 to 0.8%, and secondary from 0.4% to 2.4% [2-4]. The mortality rate after surgical treatment of secondary AEFs is from 14% to 70% [5]...

Traditional herbal medicines such as Ferula gummosa Boiss. have been used for treatment of intestinal disorders in Iran. To date no pharmacological evidence for their effectiveness has been reported. The aim of this study was to examine the relaxant effect of essential oil, hydro-alcoholic, etheric, petrolic and methanolic extracts of Ferula gummosa and two of its components, alpha-pinene and beta-pinene, on isolated rat ileum contractions induced by KCl and acetylcholine (ACh). Ferula gummosa essential oil (FGEO) and hydro-alcoholic, etheric, petrolic and methanolic extracts all inhibited the response to 80 mM KCl in a concentration-dependent manner and attenuated the maximum attainable response of the ACh concentration-response curve...

Methods for making topographic or isopower electrogastrographic (EGG) maps and for obtaining maximum power foci (MPFs) by means of 27-channel EGG recordings are briefly described. The methods are applied to short-bowel syndrome (SBS). The gastro-intestinal tract is traced by videofluorograms after X-ray-opaque barium has been ingested. The MPFs are generally located on the trace of the gastro-intestinal tract. The gastric area is occupied by 3 cycles x min(-1) (up to 28% of total MPFs) and 6 cycles x min(-1) MPFs (26%)...
