Damage to pig bile duct caused by intraluminal brachytherapy using a 125I ribbon.

ConclusionThis study demonstrated the safety of ILBT using a 125I ribbon in the pig bile duct. 125I seed ribbons may be used in the treatment of MOJ in humans. PMID: 23446746 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractUrinary tract infection (UTI) is defined as the growth of a significant number of microorganisms of a single species in the urine, in the presence of symptoms. Symptoms in young children are non-specific such as fever without focus; young infants may manifest with irritability, failure to thrive, jaundice, vomiting and diarrhea. Older children usually have symptoms of cystitis or pyelonephritis. Symptoms of cystitis are dysuria, frequency, new onset incontinence and malodorous urine while symptoms of pyelonephritis are high grade fever, flank pain and vomiting. Rapid urine testing by microscopy for pus cells, dipst...

Abstract This paper presents the first comprehensive report on traditional uses of medicinal shrubs of Rawalakot city, district Poonch, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. Ethobotanical data obtained from 120 informants were analyzed by relative frequency citation, use value, family use value, informant consensus factor, fidelity level and Jaccard index. In total, 41 shrubs belonging to 24 families and 34 genera were documented. Rosaceae was reported the most dominant family in the area (six species) and Berberidaceae showed maximum family use value (0.68). Leaves (35%) and fruits (33%) were the most commonly used plant part...

Abstract Patients with obstructive jaundice are prone to develop cardiovascular complications during surgery. However, the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. The present study was aimed to investigate the role of p38 MAPK-pHsp27 pathway in vascular hyporesponsiveness induced by obstructive jaundice. Firstly, an experimental rat obstructive jaundice model was established by bile duct ligation (BDL). We found that the thoracic aorta rings isolated from BDL rats showed decreased response to norepinephrine and acetylcholine, while continuous intraperitoneal injection with SB203580, a selective P38 MAPK inhi...

Conclusion: Gnetum ula stem extract and its isolated compound are safe and offered significant hepatoprotection against CCl4 induced toxicity. Isolated compound gnetol exhibited a potent antioxidant activity offering protection to liver damage. However, in vivo studies need to be carried out to validate the traditional use of G. ula .

Authors: Tringali A, Boškoski I, Costamagna G Abstract Hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCCA) involves a complex anatomical region where bile ducts, arteries, and veins create a complex network. HCCA can lead to biliary strictures at the main hepatic confluence, involving the right and left radicles. Endoscopic drainage of jaundiced patients with HCCA is challenging and carries a high risk of infective complications. HCCA needs a careful multidisciplinary evaluation to assess the indication and purposes (preoperative/palliative) of the biliary drainage. Biliary drainage in HCCA needs to be planned by magnetic reson...
