Double Contrast Examination of the Colon: Principles and Practice

It's a nice excitement for me to introduce and to suggest this a lot wanted textual content on double distinction exam of the colon. it really is aimed either at clinicians who request X-ray examinations of the colon and at radiologists who needs to in line with­ shape and interpret those reports. during the last decade there was renewed curiosity in X-ray exam of the colon regardless of the large advances in endoscopy and imaging tech­ nology.

Central D1 Dopamine Receptors

The improvement of a selective D1 dopamine (DA) receptor antagonist SCH 23390 inspired a couple of experiences at the capabilities mediated via important DA receptor subtypes. It was once ordinarily assumed that the vital D1 DA receptor isa molecular entity whose functionality awaits additional discovery. The papers awarded during this quantity basically express that this can be now not the case and that D1 DA receptors have many behavioral fuctions that can be altered in pathological states.

Heller· 1. Seipel Medizinische Universitatsklinik Abteilung Innere Medizin III Otfried-Miiller-StraBe 10 72076 Tiibingen, Germany 27 Clinical implications of the new understanding of thrombophilia S. Moll, D. Gulba Summary Thrombophilia used to be viewed as a disorder caused by a single congenital thrombophilic abnormality with thrombosis often triggered by an exogenous risk situation. It is becoming clear, however, that it is often a compound state with several congenital and acquired thrombophilic abnormalities.

That homocysteinemia is also a risk factor for venous thromboembolism has only emerged in the last few years [19,30,37,75,91]. Falcon et al. compared a group of 80 young patients with venous thromboembolic disease with 51 controls and found a positive association between elevated homocysteine levels and venous thrombosis [37]. , comparing 89 patients with deep vein thrombosis with 89 controls [19]. Mandel et ai. found that patients with concurrent homocystinuria and factor V Leiden have an increased risk of thrombosis [75].

One of the best investigated markers is the tissue-type plasminogen activator (antigen). The test to examine this marker, which was frequently used in patients with coronary heart disease [5, 10], determines the mass concentration of the tissue-type plasminogen activator using an ELISA technique. The measurement includes active and inactive tissue-type plasminogen activator, mainly those inactivated by plasminogen activator inhibitor. The measurement of both compounds explains why there is a strong association with the plasminogen activator inhibitor levels and why in patients with coronary heart disease and a risk constellation this marker is increased, while the activity of tissue-type plasminogen activator was found to be normal or even decreased [5, 16,23,26].
