The study investigated the effects of chronic exposure of pink snapper (Pagrus auratus Forster), to synthetic based drilling muds (SBMs). Fish were exposed to three mud systems comprised of three different types of synthetic based fluids (SBFs): an ester (E), an isomerized olefin (IO) and linear alpha olefin (LAO). Condition factor (CF), liver somatic index (LSI), hepatic detoxification (EROD activity), biliary metabolites, DNA damage and stress proteins (HSP-70) were determined. Exposure to E caused biologically significant effects by increasing CF and LSI, and triggered biliary metabolite accumulation...

Synthetic-based drilling muds (SBMs) offer excellent technical characteristics while providing improved environmental performance over other drilling muds. The low acute toxicity and high biodegradability of SBMs suggest their discharge at sea would cause minimal impacts on marine ecosystems, however, chronic toxicity testing has demonstrated adverse effects of SBMs on fish health. Sparse environmental monitoring data indicate effects of SBMs on bottom invertebrates. However, no environmental toxicity assessment has been performed on fish attracted to the cutting piles...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in the diagnosis of biliary diseases. METHODS: CEUS was performed in 57 patients with biliary diseases. The contrast enhancement characteristics and the morphologic features were observed. The ultrasonographic results were compared with those obtained through conventional 2-D ultrasound (2D-US), color Doppler flow ultrasound (CDFI), and clinical, surgical, and laboratory findings. In some cases, the ultrasonographic results were also compared with those obtained from contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT)...

We report a rare case of a massive fatal embolism that occurred in the middle of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and retrospectively examine the significant causes of the event. The patient was a 50-year old female with an uncertain history of previous abdominal surgery for multiple biliary stones 20 years prior. The patient presented with acute right upper quadrant pain. An abdominal computed tomographic (CT) scan revealed the presence of multiple stones in the common bile duct (CBD) and intra-hepatic duct (IHD) with biliary obstruction, multifocal liver abscesses, and air-biliarygram...

Studies covered chronologic algorithm of physiologic parameters in healthy children and those with hepato-biliary diseases. 71.3% of children suffering from hepato-biliary diseases appeared to have significant desynchronization. The authors conducted time-wise optimization of mud care in children with cholecystitis. Findings are that mud care has considerable sanogenous effect and could be recommended as a treatment for children with ecologically mediated cholecystitis.

Treatment with alkaline sulfide mud activates oxidant activity of neutrophils which stimulate body defense and adaptation but can provoke balneoreactions. Lysosomic membranes remain stable as mud does not stimulate phagocytosis. Peloid therapy stimulates a monocytic (macrophagal) lineage of hemopoiesis directed to elimination of intracellular microflora and products of inflammation. Radon therapy depresses oxidant and non-oxidant neutrophil activity thus diminishing damage to tissues and vessels and relieving inflammation...

The aim of this study was to know the prevalence of cholelithiasis (C) in the El Real-Gandia (Spain) as well as the degree of the response of the population. Health examinations were performed in 1,803 adults from El Real (2,000 inhabitants) and Gandia (54,000 inhabitants) using abdominal echography as the screening technique. Cholelithiasis was defined as the presence of biliary lithiasis (BL) or previous cholecystectomy (PC). Of 1,268 (70.3%) participants in the study, C was found in 126 cases (BL in 102 and P in 24) representing a standardized prevalence of around 15% in women and 5% in men...

The existing relationship linking thermal and sport medicine has developed with time. This is shown by the established beneficial effects of thermal treatments (mineral waters, mud baths, balneotherapy, aerosol applications) in a wide range of sport and non-sport related injuries. The muscle fatigue syndrome is a condition particularly worrisome for sports practising individuals. This condition impairs the cardiovascular system, as well as hematologic, renal and gastrointestinal functions, acting via biochemical and metabolic modifications of the organism, which have effects also on the psyche of the subject...

A new design of endoprosthesis, made of shape-memory nitinol alloy, was used to replace the currently used one, which was soon clogged with bile mud. After nitinol wire coil stent was slenderized in ice water, it was inserted into the strictured bile duct by endoscopy or operation. When nitinol wire coil was positioned in a narrowed biliary segment, normal saline heated to 39 degrees C was rapidly hand-injected into the lumen of the inner transport catheter to make the alloy coil to resume its original shape with a length of 3 to 10cm, and a diameter of 5 to 10mm...

Sixty six patients with primary gallbladder cancer were seen at the Hospital A. C. Camargo, São Paulo, Brazil, from January 1980 to December 1988 and who represent 0.14% of the total of 46,519 patients registered in the same period. Out of the 66 cases, 41 were submitted to an ultrasonographic exam. As to the other 25 patients, 20 had been submitted to a cholecystectomy at another hospital. This exam was not done in the other 5 patients for several reasons. The gallbladder cancer diagnosis was based on data obtained from surgery and confirmed by anatomopathological exam...

Five cases of recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC) were studied by ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), and cholangiography. All patients were recent immigrants from the Orient or Indonesia and had had recurrent attacks of cholangitis for many years. The bile was infected by E. coli and the biliary ducts were dilated; in addition, extrahepatic bile-pigment calculi were present in all 5 and intrahepatic calculi in 4. Abdominal ultrasound usually failed to demonstrate duct calculi and extrahepatic dilatation due to the soft, mud-like consistency of the stones...

The case of a child is presented, aged 4.5 years, in whom, following a simple enterocolitis that had not been treated, developed jaundice. This was considered and treated for over two years as being either a viral or a chronic hepatitis. The hepatic functions were severely altered and the physical development of the child was considerably retarded. Surgical intervention revealed the presence of pericystic adenopaty and involvement of peri-choledocal lymphatic tissue, associated to dilatation of the external biliary pathways which were filled with calculi and biliary mud...
