Wilson’S Disease

(Wilson’s disease, Hereditary copper toxicity) The Wilson’s disease leads to accumulation of copper in the liver and other organs. Hepatic or neurological symptoms develop. The diagnosis is based on a low caeruloplasmin, high urinary copper excretion and the results of a liver biopsy. The treatment consists of a low-copper diet and drugs such as penicillamine or trientine. Wilson’s disease is a disorder of copper metabolism that affects men and women;…

X-Ray And Other Imaging Contrast Examinations

The main contraindication in X-ray contrast media studies is a suspicion of a perforation because free barium causes severe irritation to the mediastinum or peritoneum; water-soluble contrast agents are less irritating and can be used in cases of possible perforation. In elderly patients, storage and rotation for optimum positioning of barium and intraluminal air often causes difficulties. X-ray and other imaging contrast examinations are the entire GIT from the pharynx…
