The aim of our work was to determine the incidence of bone demineralization in patients with chronic pancreatitis, following the relation between the funcionality of the pancreatic tissue and etiological factors in the development of osteopathy and calciophosphate metabolism. Prospectivelly, during 1 year we followed 55 patients with chronic pancreatitis of different etiology verified by endoultrasound. Patients with other possible cause of osteopathy were not included in the group. In the following of calciophosphate metabolism we determined different biochemical parameters and we measured the bone mass with densitometry in standard locations...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic ultrasound is widely used following endoscopy for evaluation of suspected submucosal lesions and may guide further management of patients. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A total of 181 consecutive patients with suspected submucosal lesion in the upper gastrointestinal tract were diagnosed by endoscopic ultrasound between 1990-97. We evaluated: 1) the potential of endoscopic ultrasound criteria to predict histological type of submucosal lesions in 69 patients with available histology, 2) the ability of endoscopic ultrasound alone or with clinical presentation, to predict malignancy in 86 patients with available histology or follow-up of >12 months...

Our aim was to evaluate the anorectal changes in patients with fecal incontinence by using different endoultrasound techniques. Eighteen females with fecal incontinence and 14 healthy controls (females) were examined. Rigid linear transducer and 10 MHz radial scanning miniprobe were used. Statistically significant difference was found in the mean percentage of decreasing of the anorectal angle during contraction between healthy subjects (21.4%) and incontinent patients (7.5%). The mean percentage of shortening of the puborectal muscle length during squeezing was significantly lower in patients (9...

Following a brief history of transrectal ultrasonography, the author explains the fundamentals that led to his research on rectal echographic layers and then describes his theory as applied to the anatomical interpretation of these layers. Personal cases of preoperative staging with transrectal echography provide a basis for the critical evaluation of this method and its proposed role in clinical application.
