Highly Recommended

The writer has done a thorough research even about the obscure and minor details related to the subject area. And also facts weren’t just dumped, but presented in an interesting manner.

I give this ebook my highest rating, 10/10 and personally recommend it.

Postmenopausal estrogen replacement therapy

Until menopause women generally suffer from a lower rate of vascular diseases, including ischemic stroke. This has been attributed to a protective effect of estrogen and thus research has focused on the beneficial effect of postmenopausal hormone therapy for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. However, a meta-analysis of nine observational studies indicated an increased risk of stroke -especially of ischemic stroke - in women using hormone replacement therapy, with RR for overall and ischemic stroke respectively of 1.1 (95 CI 1.0-1.2) and 1.2 (95 CI 1.0-1.4) 82 . Another meta-analysis including 28 randomized controlled trials found a significant increase in total stroke RR of 1.3 (95 CI 1.1-1.5) and ischemic stroke RR of 1.3 (95 CI 1.1-1.6) for women using hormone replacement therapy 83 . A Cochrane systematic review came to the same conclusion and found hormone replacement therapy to be associated with an increased risk of stroke in primary prevention trials (RR 1.4...

Conservative Followup in Clinically Detected Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Rubinoff and coauthors38 reported a retrospective cursory screening of symptoms and complications in 160 patients who were found to be hypercalcemic on routine multiphasic laboratory examination, and they compared each hypercalcemic person with a matched normocalcemic control subject for a mean follow-up of 8.5 years. Fifteen patients had a parathyroid adenoma removed during the study. Apart from a higher incidence of hypertension and gallstones among the hypercalcemic individuals, the study recorded no differences regarding symptoms or routine estimates of renal function when comparison was made with control subjects.

Trials Of Devices And Surgical Procedures

This study shows that data monitoring committees need to consider how long to wait to see if the benefit appears and counterbalances the known risks. Even though the primary outcome was not sufficiently adverse early in the trial to justify stopping, other factors combined with lack of benefit might have influenced a monitoring committee to do so. For example, in POSCH, there were side effects such as diarrhoea and, more seriously, a higher rate of kidney stones and gallstones.27 The slight early adverse trend in mortality plus the increased morbidity could have led to a decision to stop the study prematurely.

Etiology and Epidemiology

Though incompletely understood, the three major factors in gallstone formation are abnormality in bile composition, biliary stasis, and gallbladder infection. These factors are interrelated, but current thinking ascribes the primary role to abnormal bile composition, related to cholesterol and bile acid metabolism. This in turn is affected by dietary, genetic, and hormonal factors. A common medical maxim describes a typical patient with gallstones as fat, fair, female, and forty. Obesity is associated with increased cholesterol secretion, producing a supersaturated or lithogenic bile. Overconsumption of calories, particularly through refined sugar and flour, appears to be the major factor accounting for the high incidence in Western countries (Heaton 1973). It also explains the increasing prevalence of cholesterol and mixed gallstones among Japanese, Eskimo, and certain African populations adopting a more Western diet. A diet high in cholesterol-rich foods may have a secondary role....

Distribution and Incidence

Conclusions regarding the geographic distribution of gallstones are based on a variety of autopsy, hospital admission, and population survey data. The large Framingham, Massachusetts, study showed a prevalence of documented gallbladder disease among adult males (30 to 62 years old) of 1.3 percent and among adult females of 5.9 percent (Friedman, Kannel, and Dawber 1966). Many studies have shown a higher prevalence among American Indian groups, particularly in the Southwest (Brown and Gallstones are usually asymptomatic. This feature, in combination with the increased prevalence with age, explains the much higher incidence of gallstones at autopsy. A large autopsy series from Philadelphia spanning the years 1920 to 1949 demonstrated gallstones in 7.8 percent of males and 16.8 percent of females. The incidence among blacks was less than half that for whites (Lieber 1952). An autopsy series of adult whites in New York City found gallstones in 16.0 percent of males and 32.5 percent of...

Possible MCI Therapies

Despite promising basic science research, estrogen has not consistently shown benefits in treating or preventing cognitive disorders. The data currently do not support the use of this agent for the treatment of AD. In one meta-analysis (LeBlanc et al., 2001) examining nine randomized controlled trials and eight cohort studies with respect to the role of estrogen and cognition, women with menopausal symptoms showed improvement in verbal memory, vigilance, reasoning, and motor speed but no benefit in other cognitive domains. Asymptomatic women did not improve. Likewise, clinical trials have failed to demonstrate benefits for coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, osteoporosis, and cognition. Further, its long-term use may be contraindicated in women with intact uteruses due to the potential risk of endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial cancer, gallstones, and breast cancer.

Operative cholangiography

Cholangiography refers to the demonstration of the hepatic, cystic and bile ducts by direct injection into the biliary tree. The examination may be requested during cholecystectomy to demonstrate the presence of any gallstones within the biliary ducts. The patient will be positioned supine during the operation.

Somatostatin Analog Therapy

The hypothalamic hormone somatostatin is the physiologic inhibitor of pituitary somatotrophs and thyrotrophs. Pharmacologically more stable analogs of somatostatin have proved effective for somatotroph adenomas and thyrotroph adenomas. Unlike the dramatic shrinkage that occurs in prolactinomas treated with dopamine agonists, the same rarely occurs with somatostatin analogs. Still, these agents are important postoperative adjuvants for somatotroph and thyrotroph adenomas. Octreotide is the best-studied somatostatin analog, and it has been proved effective in reducing GH secretion by somatotroph adenomas.13 Headaches and arthralgias disappear quickly, and rapid improvements from acromegalic symptoms have also been shown to occur. Side effects associated with octreotide therapy are gallstone formation, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Nongynecologic Laparoscopic Procedures Cholecystectomy

Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy predispose patients to gallstone formation. Progesterone inhibits cholecystokinin resulting in decreased gallbladder emptying and increased gallbladder residual volume. Both estrogen and progesterone lead to biliary cholesterol hypersaturation, which increases the risk of forming gallstones (72). During obstetrical ultrasound, 2 to 4 of women are found to have asymptomatic gallstones, while symptomatic disease presents in only 5-10 of 10,000 pregnancies (1). Symptoms of biliary disease are essentially the same in the pregnant patient as in the nonpregnant patient. Most liver function tests are unaffected by pregnancy and remain useful in the diagnosis of biliary disease in the gravid patient with abdominal pain. However, alkaline phosphatase, which is normally elevated during pregnancy, is less helpful in making the diagnosis of biliary disease (72). As in nonpregnant patients, ultrasound evaluation is the diagnostic imaging technique of...

A64 Common medical signs symptoms and terms used for gastrointestinal disorders

Gall stones stones within the gall bladder, usually of cholesterol (non-opaque) or of calcium bilirubinate (bilirubin), opaque and commonly associated with haemolytic anaemia (sickle cell disease, spherocytosis, thalassaemia). Gall stones are considered to have an increased incidence in individuals commonly referred to as having the five Fs fat, female, fertile, flatulent, and over 40.

History and Paleopathology

Hippocrates and Aristotle were familiar with the clinical findings of jaundice and biliary disease, but their writings do not specifically mention gallstones. Hippocrates differentiated four types of jaundice due to disease of the liver, but he did not describe any cause related to obstruction. Diocles of Carystus referred to possible mechanical obstruction of the flow of bile. Accounts of Alexander the Great's illness prior to his death in 323 B.C. are quite suggestive of gallstones and cholecystitis (Gordon-Taylor 1937). Galen described various types of jaundice, including obstructive jaundice. He stated that small foreign bodies such as grain or fig and pomegranate seeds could obstruct the common bile duct. Given the close similarity of small gallstones to certain seeds, Galen may in fact be referring to gallstones. Gallstones in lower animals had been recognized for centuries, and crushed gallstones were an important ingredient in yellow pigment. The codified Talmudic law of the...

Patient Encounter 2

The fibric acid derivatives are generally well tolerated. The most common adverse effects include dyspepsia, abdominal pain, diarrhea, flatulence, rash, muscle pain, and fatigue (Table 12-9). Myopathy and rhabdomyolysis can occur, and the risk appears to increase with renal insufficiency or concurrent statin therapy. If a fibrate is used with a statin, fenofibrate is preferred because it appears to inhibit the glucuronidation of the statin hydroxy and moiety less than gemfibrozil, allowing greater renal clearance of the statins.2 ,42 A CK level should be checked before therapy is started and if symptoms occur. Liver dysfunction has been reported, and LFTs should be monitored. Fibrates increase cholesterol in the bile and have caused gallbladder and bile duct disorders, such as cholelithiasis and cholecystitis. Unlike niacin, these agents do not increase glucose or uric acid levels. Fibrates are contraindicated in patients with gallbladder disease, liver dysfunction, or severe kidney...

Internal Usage Of Essential Oils By Aromatherapists

Essential oils and their components are incorporated into enterically coated capsules to prevent damage and used for treating irritable bowel syndrome (peppermint in Colpermin), a mixture of monoterpenes for treating gallstones (Rowatol) and ureteric stones (Rowatinex) these are under product licenses as medicines (Somerville et al., 1984, 1985 Engelstein et al., 1992).

Ruptur Thympanic Membran Cruris

Vibratori Coppia Gif

Although shoulder pain may be related to a primary shoulder disorder, always consider the possibility that shoulder pain is referred from either the chest or the abdomen. Coronary artery disease, pulmonary tumors, and gallbladder disease are commonly associated with pain referred to the shoulder.

Use Of Essential Oils Mainly As Chemical Agents And Not For Their Odor

Ureterolithiasis was treated with Rowatinex, a mixture of terpenes smelling like Vicks VapoRub in 43 patients against a control group treated with a placebo. The overall expulsion rate of the ure-teric stones was greater in the Rowatinex group (Engelstein et al., 1992). Similar mixes have shown both positive and negative results on gallstones over the years.

Pharmacologic Treatment

Estrogen is an antiosteoporotic agent that has been shown to increase bone mass and thus decrease the risk of vertebral and hip fracture by approximately 30 to 40 as compared with patients taking placebo. Estrogen, however, has been found to increase rates of stroke and deep vein thrombosis, whereas combined estrogen and progesterone therapy is associated with increased risks of cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, dementia, and gallbladder disease. As a consequence, estrogen is mainly used in the early postmenopausal period to treat postmenopausal syndrome and then lowered to the least effective dose to control symptoms. Because of the risks of estrogen formulations, this precludes their use as primary agents in the treatment of osteoporosis.

Cholelithiasis and Cholecystitis

Asicite Raio

Gallstones are exceedingly common among women and men of all ages, affecting approximately 20 of Americans during their lifetime. Population-based studies reveal a prevalence of gallbladder disease in women age 20 to 55 of 5 to 20 , increasing to 25 to 30 after age 50. By age 75, an estimated 35 of women and 20 of men will develop either symptomatic or asymptomatic gallstones (Attili et al., 1995). The prevalence for men is approximately one-third to one-half that for women in any given age group. The traditional clinical picture of a patient likely to have gallstones is The Rome Group for the Epidemiology and Prevention of Cholelithiasis (GREPCO, 1984) found that the overall cumulative probability of developing biliary colic over time was 11.9 at 2 years, 16.5 at 4 years, and 25.8 at 10 years, with a cumulative probability of 3 of developing complications at 10 years. The incidence of the development of biliary complications as the presenting complaint of gallstone disease is rare,...

Indicators Of Cholestasis Bilirubin

Cholestasis is impaired excretion of bile into the duodenum. It may be caused by factors within the liver or extrahepatic causes (e.g. gallstones). laundice is present when the plasma bilirubin concentration is greater than 35 umol L l, although it is often not clinically detected until it is greater than 50 pmol L '. Two forms of bilirubin may be measured in the plasma - conjugated (water-soluble) and unconjugated (lipid-soluble) - although most laboratories report only total bilirubin concentration.

Epidemiology And Etiology

The incidence of chronic pancreatitis is approximately one in 10,000 people. The most common cause of chronic pancreatitis in adults in Western countries is ethanol abuse. The most common cause in children is cystic fibrosis due to pre-existing pancreatic insufficiency inherent in the disease. Gallstones can occur at the same time as chronic pancreatitis but are not often implicated as the cause. Unlike acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis has an unknown etiology in a significant number of cases (30 )29,30

Urologic Treatment Modalities

Over the last two decades, increasing experience with minimally invasive techniques has significantly changed the management of symptomatic stone-bearing calyceal diverticula. Nearly all contemporary, minimally invasive approaches have been applied to calyceal diverticula, including extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy, retrograde intrarenal surgery, percutaneous endoscopy, and laparoscopy.

Informed Consent Legalese

The risk of laparoscopic malpractice in general surgery centers around three specific complications in 90 of cases bile duct injury, perforating bowel injury, and major vascular injury. Currently, about two-thirds of laparoscopic complications are bile duct injuries during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and though interesting for those curious about injury, injury prevention, malpractice issues, and preventative mechanisms, there is little significantly relevant to urologic discussions so attention will be focused upon the remaining 34 of laparoscopic injuries. Currently 12 of injuries are bowel related, 10 are vascular, and 11 are other injuries. In this other category includes a hodgepodge of various complications including fistula formation (2 ), burns (2 ), retained gall stones (1 ), retained foreign body (1 ), and others (ureteral or bladder injury, incidental splenectomy, etc., 6 ) (21,26). Because most surgeons still utilize the blind Veress needle method for pneumoinsufflation...

Assessment of Cure and Followup

Although TG is now done infrequently, there are numerous living patients who have had TG. Some may have had gastrinomas removed at the time of TG, but many still have hypergastrinemia and residual tumor. Although these patients are no longer at risk for complications of excess gastric acid, they still need periodic evaluation to assess for tumor progression as well as nutrition-related problems. Evaluation of patients is recommended at 6-month intervals. Vitamin B12 injections are given monthly, and most patients can administer their Bu injections at home. Folic acid, calcium, and iron supplements are advisable. Many Z-E syndrome patients are noncompliant, particularly when there is a history of alcohol abuse.48 TG also places the patient at risk for cholelithiasis. Nearly all Z-E syndrome patients who have undergone TG acquire gallstones if they live long enough.113 I recommend that cholecystectomy be done at the time of TG.33

Outcome evaluation

Successful management of overweight and obesity is determined by the ability the treatment plan has to (a) prevent weight gain, (b) reduce and maintain a lower body weight, and (c) decrease the risk of obesity-related comorbidities. Since weight is necessary to calculate the BMI, it, as well as waist circumference, should be determined. Obesity management may encompass more than weight loss or maintenance in the presence of other conditions other pertinent parameters should be assessed at baseline. The presence of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, CAD, sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, gout, or cancer should be determined. Blood pressure and heart rate should be measured prior to implementation of any therapy. Certain laboratory parameters also should be assessed. A basic metabolic panel, liver function tests, complete blood count, fasting lipid profile, full thyroid function tests, and other laboratory studies as deemed necessary should be...

Burden of Disease

Obesity is a substantial health problem in the United States, and the percentage of the population who is overweight or obese continues to rise. Defined as a BMI of 30 or higher, the prevalence of obesity in adults in the United States has increased from 13 to 27 over the past 40 years (McTigue et al., 2003). The prevalence of overweight rose from 31 to 34 . Obesity and overweight are associated with an increased risk of CHD, hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, musculoskeletal disorders, gallbladder disease, and several types of cancer. Obesity is associated with a decreased quality of life and social stigmatization.


V Gallstones may form in the gallbladder and obstruct the flow of bile, resulting in inflammation and enlargement of the gallbladder. These stones may be composed of bilirubin metabolites, cholesterol, or various calcium salts. They frequently obstruct the gallbladder, causing retention of bile and the risk of rupture into the peritoneal cavity, which ultimately results in peritonitis.

Amylase and Lipase

Pancreatic disease, particularly acute pancreatitis, is often associated with elevations in amylase and lipase. Table 15-7 lists common causes of elevated amylase and lipase. Lipase levels have greater sensitivity and specificity for pancreatic disease than amylase levels. Because there are many different assays for amylase and lipase, with different reference ranges, physicians should consult their laboratory's reference range to determine their upper limits of normal. Amylase and lipase values increase 3 to 6 hours after the onset of acute pancreatitis, both peaking at approximately 24 hours. Amylase levels fall to normal in 3 to 5 days lipase levels return to normal in 8 to 14 days. Because of exocrine insufficiency caused by recurrent pancreatitis, amylase levels tend to be lower when alcohol is the cause of pancreatitis, as opposed to gallstone or drug-induced pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is likely when the amylase is elevated to three times the upper limit of normal. When lipase...

Acute Pancreatitis

The causes of acute pancreatitis are diverse and demonstrate changing trends over time and variation by geography. Gallstones, biliary sludge, and microlithiasis are recognized as the proximate cause in more than half of reported cases. Ethyl alcohol ingestion is the second most common reported cause of acute pancreatitis, about 30 of cases, although it is unclear whether alcohol is a toxin or an exacerbating factor in individuals who have compromised pancreatic function. The remaining causes of acute pancreatitis account for less than 15 of total cases, including hypertriglyceridemia, trauma, medications, ERCP, neoplasms, perforated PUD, viral infection, and idiopathic causes.

Timing of Surgery

Additionally, delaying surgical intervention in patients with symptomatic gallstone disease during pregnancy may lead to further complications of gallstone disease such as acute cholecystitis and gallstone pancreatitis (50,52-54), which can lead to higher spontaneous abortion rates and preterm labor.

Carcinoid Tumour

Patients may receive drugs to alleviate the symptoms of diarrhoea, flushing and bronchospasm, but specific agents are available to inhibit synthesis, prevent release or block the actions of the mediators released by the tumour. However, the definitive treatment of carcinoid tumours is surgical removal. The most important drug is the somatostatin analogue, octreotide, which improves both symptoms and biochemical indices, and is useful in the prevention and management of perioperative hypotension and carcinoid crisis. Somatostatin (half-life 1-3 min) is secreted naturally by the pancreas and regulates gastrointestinal peptide production by inhibiting the secretion of growth hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), prolactin and other exocrine and endocrine hormones. Octreotide, the octapeptide analogue of somatostatin, has a longer half-life, high potency and low clearance, and may be given i.v. or s.c. The usual s.c. dose is 50-200 pg every 8-12 h. It is useful for symptom relief in...

A61 The pancreas

Secretions from the liver also enter the duodenum via the bile duct. The bile is stored and concentrated in the gall bladder, which also contracts due to the action of the vagus nerve, and can also contract due to the action of some hormones. The bile constituents may concentrate and give rise to gall stones. Inflammation of the gall bladder is referred to as cholecystitis.

Typhoid Fever

In the normal course of typhoid fever, fecal excretion of the organism persists for a few weeks, but about 2 percent of infected persons will never clear the bacillus from their stools. In such persons, the organism appears to colonize the biliary tract - that is, the tubules that conduct bile from the liver and the gallbladder. Persons with preexisting disease of the biliary tract-for example, inflammation or gallstones - are at risk for becoming carriers. S. typhi appears to have a particular affinity for bile and gallstones. It grows best on media enriched with bile by-products. Once a stone is infected, it forms a focus of infection sheltered from antibiotics and the host's immune system. The likelihood of becoming a carrier increases with age and peaks at 55 years of age, with women carriers outnumbering their male counterparts 3 to 1 - a pattern similar to that seen in biliary disease, but contrasting sharply with acute typhoid fever, which is a disease of the young and which...

Limonene Rowatinex

Rowachol has been in use for over 50 years for the dissolution of gallstones and biliary tract stones. There have been many published works on its effects and at least one double-blind trial (Lamy, 1967). It has been stated that although the dissolution rate of Rowachol is not impressive, it is still much greater than Rowatinex and could occur spontaneously (Doran and Bell, 1979). It has been employed alone as a useful therapy for common duct stones (Ellis and Bell, 1981) although improved results were demonstrated when Rowachol was used in conjunction with bile acid therapy (Ellis et al., 1981). Rowachol has been shown to inhibit hepatic cholesterol synthesis mediated by a decreased hepatic S-3-hydroxy-3-methylgutaryl-CoA reductase activity (Middleton and Hui, 1982) the components mostly responsible for this activity were menthol and 1,8-cineole, with pinene and camphene having no significant effect (Clegg et al., 1980). A reduction in cholesterol crystal formation in the bile of...

Appendix D Glossary

Biliary sludge A deposit of tiny stones or crystals made up of cholesterol, calcium bilirubinate, and other calcium salts. The cholesterol and calcium bilirubinate crystals in biliary sludge can lead to gallstone formation. Cholelithiasis Also known as gallstones. Hard masses formed in the gallbladder or its passages that can block bile blow and cause severe upper right quadrant abdominal pain (sometimes radiating to the right shoulder). Gallstone (cholelithiasis) A solid formation in the gallbladder or bile duct (chole-docholithiasis if in the bile duct) composed of cholesterol and bile salts.


Patients with pancreatic or intestinal somatostatinoma are generally about 50 years old. There is an equal proportion of males and females 41 Initial symptoms are diabetes, gallbladder disease, and steatorrhea (Table 84-3). Diabetes mellitus and glucose intolerance are reported to occur in 60 of patients. Gallstones occur in 70 of patients. Diarrhea and steatorrhea are reported in 30 to 68 of patients. In some, the severity of the diarrhea and steatorrhea correlates with the size and degree of metastatic spread of the tumor, and it improves with tumor resection. Hypochlorhydria has been found in approximately 33 to 53 of patients. It arises more commonly with pancreatic somatostatinoma, occurring in 86 of patients with pancreatic somatostatinoma and in 17 of patients with intestinal somatostatinoma. The weight loss may be secondary to diarrhea and malabsorption.

Liver Disease

The Hyangyak chipsong pang lists 25 forms of jaundice, but these conditions were not linked to problems of the liver and gallbladder. By contrast, the Tongui pogam reduced all the subdivisions simply to jaundice. Its cause was explained in terms of damp fever, in which the blood evaporates and becomes hot and dark in color. This dark color first appears in the eyes and face, but as it spreads, the whole body becomes yellow. Causes of jaundice included alcohol poisoning, lack of appetite, excessive sexual indulgence, and yellow sweat. Some texts apparently described gallstones along with colic, but all the painful stone diseases were essentially indistinguishable.


Slowly developing jaundice that is accompanied by pale stools and cola-colored urine is obstructive jaundice, either intrahepatic or extrahepatic. Jaundice accompanied by fever and chills is considered cholangitis until proved otherwise. Cholangitis may result from stasis of bile in the bile duct that results from a gallstone or from cancer of the head of the pancreas. Determine whether chemicals are used in a patient's occupation or hobbies, because they may be related to the cause of the jaundice. Many industrial chemicals and drugs have been associated with liver disease. These agents may be responsible for a viral hepatitis-like illness, cholestasis, or for granulomas or hepatic tumors.

Dietary Details

The current dietary principles recommended by ADA are the same as those of the American Heart Association (AHA). The caloric content should be that which will permit a patient with type 2 diabetes to attain a body mass index (BMI) of 25 kg m2. With gender, height, weight, and age known, the basal daily caloric requirement and the desired weight can be obtained from standard online calculators. A simpler method, for patients with routine and not intensely physical activities, is to estimate the daily caloric expenditure by multiplying the ideal weight in kilograms by 30 calories kg. Weight loss can be safely achieved if the patient is taught how to reduce caloric intake by 100 calories per day for each 10 pounds of desired weight loss over 1 year. National Institutes of Health guidelines advocate that weight changes be methodically accomplished over long periods. This will preclude acute energy shifts that could cause gallstones, gout, and depression and have 95 likelihood of...
