COMPARISON OF URINARY PANCREOLAURYL AND FAECAL ELASTASE-1 TESTS IN THE ASSESSMENT OF EXOCRINE PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY
- Cystosarcoma Phyllodes Metastatic to the Pancreas. Wolfson, Philip; Rybak, Benito J.; Kim, Unsup // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug1978, Vol. 70 Issue 2, p184
A case is presented of cystosarcoma phyllodes of the breast metastatic to the pancreas. Solitary metastasis to the pancreas has not been reported. The lesion was excised in toto with a good result. Clinical and pathological features of cystosarcoma phyllodes are discussed.
- The Diagnostic Significance of Excretory Pancreatic Tests. Bondar, Z. A.; Tuzhilin, S. A. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Dec1974, Vol. 62 Issue 6, p488
The following four pathologic types of external pancreatic secretion are described in patients with chronic pancreatitis: obstruction, both distal and proximal block of secretion, hypo- and hypersecretory types. These pathologic types of external pancreatic secretion help to evaluate the level...
- Pancreatic Exocrine Hypofunction in the Wasting Syndrome of End-Stage Renal Disease. Sachs, E. F.; Hurwitz, F. J.; Bloch, H. M.; Milne, F. J. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Mar1983, Vol. 78 Issue 3, p170
Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in patients with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis is not well documented despite the prevalance of a wasting syndrome, which may indicate pancreatic involvement. The present study intended to evaluate pancreatic exocrine function in this group. Eight...
- Exocrine Pancreatic Hypersecretion in Brazilian Alcoholics. Neves, Manoel M.; Borges, Durval R.; Vilela, Moacyr P. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug1983, Vol. 78 Issue 8, p513
Thirty percent of alcoholic patients without clinical evidence of pancreatic or hepatic disease showed hypersecretion of pancreatic bicarbonate in all three test periods after stimulation with secretin and secretin-cholecystokinin, and an increased amount of protein in the duodenal aspirate of...
- Mechanisms of parenchymal injury and signaling pathways in ectatic ducts of chronic pancreatitis: implications for pancreatic carcinogenesis. Bhanot, Umesh K.; Möller, Peter // Laboratory Investigation (00236837);May2009, Vol. 89 Issue 5, p489
The pathobiology of chronic pancreatitis (CP) remains enigmatic despite remarkable progress made recently in uncovering key mechanisms involved in the initiation and progression of the disease. CP is increasingly thought of as a multifactorial disorder. Apoptosis plays a role in parenchymal...
- Pancreatic Insufficiency as the Presenting Feature of Hyperparathyroidism. Warshaw, Andrew L.; Heizer, William D.; Laster, Leonard // Annals of Internal Medicine;Jan68, Vol. 68 Issue 1, p161
Describes a case of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in association with a parathyroid adenoma. Presence of severe malabsorption syndrome; Treatment by oral administration of pancreatic enzymes; Role of hyperparathyroidism in pancreatic insufficiency.
- Exocrine Function Following the Whipple Operation as Assessed by Stool Elastase Matsumoto, Joe; Traverso, L. William // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Nov2006, Vol. 10 Issue 9, p1225
What impact does pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) have on exocrine function? Does the pancreatic anastomosis remain patent? When stool elastase became available for testing in November 2001, we began preoperative assessment and then increasingly employed postoperative measurements. From December...
- Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and its consequences on physical development and metabolism in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Laass, Martin W.; Henker, Jobst; Thamm, Kerstin; Neumeister, Volker; Kuhlisch, Eberhard // European Journal of Pediatrics;Nov2004, Vol. 163 Issue 11, p681
Presents a study which investigated exocrine pancreatic function and its consequences on physical development and metabolism in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Number of patients included in the study; Assessment of insulin requirement in the patients; Results of the study.
- Pancreatic Exocrine Function Is Preserved After Distal Pancreatectomy. Speicher, James E.; Traverso, L. William // Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery;Jun2010, Vol. 14 Issue 6, p1006
Our objective was to measure human stool elastase-1 to determine the effect of distal pancreatectomy on exocrine function. During a 72-month period, 115 patients underwent resection. Stool elastase values were measured preoperatively in 83 patients and repeated at 3, 12, and 24 months. The...
