Abstract (Expand)

Cerebral dyspraxia associated with hemodialysis is a progressive, fatal syndrome. Patients suffer from a combination of psychiatric and neurological signs and symptoms. Psychiatric manifestations include anxiety, depression, paranoid ideation, and a progressive dementia with impaired concentration, decreased memory, personality changes, and hallucinations. Neurological findings include deliberate speech, stuttering, dysarthria, dyspraxia of speech and movement, tremulousness, myoclonic activity, asterixis, and seizures. These symptoms are aggravated during and immediately following dialysis. Patients usually die within 6 months of its onset. The etiology is unknown. Treatment efforts have failed to reverse its course. Recognition of this syndrome is highlighted so that informed, critical decisions can be made as to whether to continue dialysis therapy.

Abstract (Expand)

This study has investigated the relationship between duodenogastric reflux, gastritis and certain symptoms 6-12 months after three operations for uncomplicated duodenal ulcer. The operations studied were proximal gastric vagotomy (PGV, 20 cases), truncal vagotomy and pyloroplasty (TV+P, 22 cases) and truncal vagotomy and antrectomy (TV+A, 21 cases). Duodenogastric reflux was assessed both by a radiological technique and by measuring the concentration of bilirubin in the gastric aspirate before and after operation. Incidence and severity of postoperative gastritis were determined by endoscopic biopsy. Symptoms were assessed by symptomatic score and Visick grading. There was a significant correlation between duodenal reflux and histological evidence of both severe superficial gastritis and glandular atrophy (P less than 0-01). There was also a close association between the degree of reflux and the presence of severe heartburn, epigastric pain and bile vomiting after operation. The amount of reflux did not differ before operation. There was significantly less reflux following PGV than after either TV+P (P less than 0-025) or TV+A (P less than 0-001). The results indicate that an operation which preserves an innervated and intact antrum and pylorus will protect against postoperative duodenogastric reflux, gastritis and symptoms.
