Prevenzione e trattamento delle complicanze in chirurgia proctologica

Questo libro su anoretto e pavimento pelvico è indirizzato soprattutto ai chirurghi generali e ai proctologi. Ma anche a radiologi, gastroenterologi, endoscopisti e fisioterapisti. Tutti coloro cioè che sono coinvolti nella gestione del paziente in quel momento critico in cui un evento, imprevisto o magari prevedibile, causa un problema diagnostico o terapeutico.

Endosonography in Gastroenterology

Transcutaneous ultrasonography is a longtime process for prognosis and treatment in gastroenterology. despite the fact that, ultrasonic photographs can frequently be hampered through pulmonary and intestinal fuel and through bony and adipose tissue. In 1956 Wild and Reid stated the 1st result of transrectal ultrasound of the prostate [1].

Nutrition, Gut Microbiota and Immunity: Therapeutic Targets for IBD: 79th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop, New York, N.Y., September 2013

Inflammatory Bowel ailment (IBD) is a protracted debilitating disease that happens at any age and in populations around the globe. Its pathogenesis is thought to contain a mix of genetic susceptibility, immune and exterior environmental components, together with the intestine microbiota. altering elements akin to vitamin and the human intestine microbiota could therefore be a manageable replacement to suppressing the innate and adaptive immune responses.

2000; Costa and Colleoni 1999) and the attenuation in vitro of CB1 or CB2 receptor signalling. Two other compounds, the CB2 -selective ligands JTE-907 and BML-190 (Figs. 7 and 9), also behave as CB2 receptor inverse agonists (Iwamura et al. 2001; New and Wong 2003). However, whether JTE-907 or BML-190 produces antagonism at CB2 receptors has not been reported. Whereas some inverse cannabimimetic effects of SR141716A may be produced as a result of antagonism of responses to endogenously released endocannabinoids, there is evidence that others are not, prompting the hypothesis that this compound is an inverse agonist that can elicit responses at CB1 receptors that are opposite in direction from those elicited by conventional agonists.

That palmitoylethanolamide acts through CB1 or TRPV1 receptors, can be ruled out. Thus, it produces antinociceptive effects that are not opposed by SR141716A (Calignano et al. 1998, 2001; Farquhar-Smith et al. 2002; Farquhar-Smith and Rice 2001) and it has been found not to attenuate nociceptive behaviour induced in mice by intraplantar injection of capsaicin (Calignano et al. 2001). Also, palmitoylethanolamide does not bind to or activate CB1 receptors at concentrations below 1 or 10 µM (Devane et al.

Mouse Vas Deferens A finding that abnormal-cannabidiol and cannabidiol can attenuate phenylephrineinduced contractions of the mouse isolated vas deferens points to the presence of abnormal-cannabidiol-sensitive receptors in the smooth muscle cells of this tissue (Pertwee et al. 2002; Thomas et al. 2004). Cannabidiol also decreases methoxamine and noradrenaline-induced contractions of the mouse vas deferens and antagonizes phenylephrine and noradrenaline in an insurmountable manner (Pertwee et al.
