heparin ischemic acute intestinal

BACKGROUND: Acute ischaemia of the small intestine is caused by mesenteric venous thrombosis in 5-15% of patients. The non-specific symptoms frequently lead to a diagnostic delay. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 30-year-old pregnant woman presented at the accident and emergency department with progressive abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. During admission the patient developed signs of peritonitis. Diagnostic laparoscopy revealed a picture of mesenteric venous thrombosis, and we resected 170 cm ischemic small intestine...

We report the case of a 6-year-old boy diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia (AML-M3V) when he presented with pallor, abdominal pain, anorexia, and fatigue. Induction chemotherapy was started according to the AML-BFM 98 protocol along with Vesanoid (ATRA, All-trans retinoic acid). On the sixth day of induction, he developed splenic and gallbladder infarcts. Splenectomy and cholecystectomy were performed while chemotherapy induction continued as scheduled. Four days later, he developed ischemic areas in the kidneys and ischemic colitis in the sigmoid colon...

Acute critical limb ischemia (CLI) is a rather frequent clinical event in elderly patients. Atherosclerotic plaques or cardiopathies (atrial enlargement and fibrillation, ventricular thrombosis) are the most frequent clinical situations related to peripheral embolization. Rapid diagnosis followed by suitable treatment allows us to obtain good results even in elderly patients. The decision about the treatment of acute CLI is related to the clinical and functional condition of the patient. Anamnesis must inquire about recent ischemic or hemorrhagic events in the cardiovascular, gastro-intestinal and urinary apparatuses, or the presence of disorders of coagulation and fibrinolysis...

BACKGROUND: We have shown previously that heparin-binding epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like growth factor (HB-EGF) is cytoprotective for intestinal epithelial cells exposed to hypoxia in vitro. We now examine the effects of HB-EGF on the recovery of small intestine from ischemic injury in vivo. METHODS: Segmental intestinal ischemia of 60-min duration was produced in adult rats by occlusion of a first-order branch of the superior mesenteric artery. Recombinant HB-EGF (100 microg) was injected intraluminally into the proximal small bowel after 45 min of ischemia in experimental animals, and buffered saline was injected in control animals...

The pattern of symptoms which evidences acute mesenterial infarction has been investigated on more than 40 pigs by applying diverse non-surgical therapeutic approaches during transarterial balloon occlusion of the A. mesenterica superior. All animals died within 38 hours, much earlier after central occlusion than after blockage of the peripheral branches of the artery. A convincing delay could only be observed in the group treated by antibiotics. In two groups of clinical patients, 20 before and 28 after the experimental study, we found a significantly better prognosis in the latter group...

The reports of 8 patients with acute or subacute abdominal pain related to venous mesenteric ischemia were reviewed. None of the patients presented local or regional predisposing factors for venous thrombosis. In 4 patients, a localized segment of ischemic small bowel (median length 125 cm; range: 30-350) was resected without immediate anastomosis and postoperative anticoagulation therapy was given. Two of these patients developed recurrent ischemia involving the bowel adjacent to the stoma, treated successfully in 1 case by a repeat resection...

The effect of heparin in clinical anticoagulant doses on S-T segment and cardiac enzymes was studied in 18 patients with acute myocardial infarction by electrocardiogram and enzyme evaluation 1 hour and 24 hours after initial heparin infusion. Intestinal mucosa heparin was given by infusion, 10,000 units after the admission electrocardiogram, and 5,000 units every 6 hours. Data in the nine control and nine treated patients were statistically similar on admission. The electrocardiograph findings were improved, but not significantly, 1 hour after administration of heparin...

Intestinal mucosa heparin (IMH) and beef lung heparin (BLH) were infused into dogs subjected to myocardial ischemia by intermittent coronary artery occlusions. The IMH was from a mixture of beef, sheep, and pig intestinal mucosa. Initial control occlusion and recovery was followed by a second occlusion with 60,000 units of IMH or BLH added. Electrocardiographic S-T segment elevations (ST) were measured acutely. There were no significant differences in ST in non-ischemic myocardium before occlusions or with occlusions...
