Persistent digital ischemia is an uncommon paraneoplastic syndrome. We describe a 71-year-old man whose only manifestation of an underlying adenocarcinoma was digital ischemia. His symptoms responded dramatically to bilateral dorsal sympathectomies. A thorough search for the mechanism producing the ischemia failed to provide an explanation. We assume that unknown neurohumoral factors produced by the tumor were responsible.

    Enterocytes at the tips of microvilli are more sensitive to an ischemic insult than those cells residing in the crypts, an effect thought to be due to a relative lack of collateral flow. We speculated that this increased cellular sensitivity to ischemia might be an intrinsic feature of the cells...

    Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is associated with ischaemic stroke and migraine with aura (MA), and has been proposed as a cause of both. Numerous studies indicate that percutaneous PFO closure can improve MA, but they all suffer from methodological problems. It is recommended that the advantages...

    Acute mesenteric ischemia is a pathology leading to acute abdomen with a very poor prognosis when there is a delay in diagnosis. In this study we aimed to investigate the importance of D-dimer levels and biochemical parameters in early diagnosis of acute mesentheric ischemia by assessing...
