Endoscopic hemostasis of nonvariceal, non-peptic ulcer hemorrhage


, : Endoscopic hemostasis of nonvariceal, non-peptic ulcer hemorrhage. Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Clinics of North America 7(4): 657-670

The majority of patients who present with acute upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage are found to be bleeding from acid peptic disease including ulcer, esophagitis and gastritis, and variceal disease. Mallory-Weiss tear, Dieulafoy's lesion, cancer, and other rare lesions account for the bleeding source in the remaining patients. Endoscopic hemostasis may be effective in many of the conditions, but only Mallory-Weiss tear and Dieulafoy's lesion are encountered frequently enough to be clinically significant.

Muscle vibration plus robotic rehabilitation to improve upper limb spasticity and function: A pilot randomized controlled trial. Even though robotic rehabilitation is very useful to improve motor function, there is no conclusive evidence on its role in reducing post-stroke spasticity. Focal muscle vibration (MV) is instead very useful to reduce segmental spasticity, with a...

Ryanodine receptors (RyRs) are intracellular Ca2+ channels that mediate the release of calcium from internal stores and therefore play an important role in Ca2+ signaling and homeostasis. Three RyR isoforms have been described thus far, and vario...
