OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the antibacterial effect of a newly developed haemostatic agent Ankaferd Blood Stopper® (ABS) and Ferric Sulphate (FS) on various oral microorganisms. STUDY DESIGN: Bacterial strains were freshly incubated in their specific broth media. For each of the strains, 3 wells per each agent, with a 5 mm diameter were made under aseptic conditions in the specific agar media. Then they were filled with a test agents or 0...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of bilateral arcuate artery suture hemostasis of corpus uteri (haemostasia) for postpartum hemorrhage due to uterine inertia during caesarean section, and to explore the change of blood vessels and blood flow of the uterus after surgery. METHODS: From May 2009 to Dec. 2011, the 212 patients in No. 202 People's Liberation Army Hospital received bilateral arcuate artery suture hemostasis of corpus uteri for postpartum hemorrhage due to uterine inertia during caesarean section...

Wandering spleen is an unusual condition in children and is even more rarely diagnosed in the neonatal period. A case of splenic haemorrhage after dystocic birth in a newborn is reported. Before surgery, results of imaging studies were suggestive of a ruptured spleen. On laparotomy, a big haematoma surrounding a wandering spleen was found. Haemorrhage aroused from short splenic arteria. Haemostasia and splenopexy were performed. The spleen proved later to be viable. The authors speculate that the haemorrhage was the first manifestation of the wandering spleen...

BACKGROUND: Although Mallory-Weiss syndrome is responsible for between 0.5 and 17% of the cases of upper digestive haemorrhage, the information existing on the endoscopic treatment of this syndrome is scarce. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We made a retrospective study of 71 patients with haemorrhage due to Mallory-Weiss syndrome, dividing them into two groups according to the treatment they had received (medical or medical-endoscopic). Hence, 60 patients (30 with clean laceration, 9 with signs of prior haemostasia and 21 with fresh clotting) had been treated with procinetics and/or antisecretories alone, while the 11 remaining (8 with active haemorrhage, 2 with visible vessel and 1 with fresh clotting) had also received endoscopic treatment with sclerotherapy...

OBJECTIVE: Renal haematomas after extracorporeal shockwave lithotrity are an immediate and potentially serious complication. The incidence of post-ESWL renal haematoma with the new Siemens' Lithostar Multiline lithotripter is analyzed in an attempt to know its occurrence, predisposing factors and presentations signs and symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Between January and December 1998, a total of 1313 extracorporeal shockwave lithotrity sessions were performed on lithiasis located at any level of the urinary tract in 686 patients...

The relationship between diet and atherosclerosis is due to the diet influence on lipoprotein composition. However, because of the multifactorial basis of the atherosclerosis, diet components have another potential intervention mechanisms in the atherosclerosis process, such as the influence on other cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, obesity, diabetes) or the influence on the coagulation system and the relationship endothelium-platelets. We will review the effect of diet components on these factors, specially its effects on the haemostasia system, which alteration is responsible for provoking ischemic heart disease...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous or non-traumatic intracranial haemorrhages seen in children of under 15 years old are most frequently due to cerebral vascular malformations, followed at a considerable distance by blood disorders, vasculopathies, tumours and the complications of radio-therapy. OBJECTIVE: To present the cases of spontaneous and non-traumatic cerebral haemorrhage seen at our hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We reviewed all the paediatric cases of spontaneous cerebral haemorrhage diagnosed in our hospital over the previous sixteen years, excluding bleeding in the neonatal period...

In the present study we have observed with the electron microscope the glycogen body of the chick, Gallus domesticus, which constitutes a spinal cord circumventricular organ specific of birds. We have detected in young chickens and embryos the presence of considerable amounts of glycogen particles in the cerebrospinal and vascular compartments, coming from the glycogen body cells, which are able to discharge part of their glycogen into either the central canal or the capillary lumen, via ependymal and endothelial cells respectively...

In this study we evaluate the efficacy of somatostatin (ST) versus balloon tamponade (BT) in controlling bleeding from esophageal varices. Forty-four consecutive patients with active variceal bleeding were randomly assigned to treatment with a continuous infusion of ST at 250 micrograms/h after an initial bolus of 50 micrograms (group A) or to treatment with BT (group B). Five cases were excluded from the final analysis because of methodological issues. Nineteen patients were allocated to group A and twenty to group B...

We have made a bibliografic review on the base of a personal observation rare case of a traumatic rupture of the corpus cavernosum. Upon all-literature, we have study, the only were 18 cases until 1956 and 64 in 1977. Ours would be the 65th. In this report we talk about the etiopathogenesis and symptomatology of this process. We insist on the need of a early surgery to get a good haemostasia, emptying of the haematoma and as a result prevention of cicatrization sequels which would determine penis significant deformities with subsequent disturbances in the erection and normal intercourse...
