KOL-Index: 18 To evaluate differences in the expression of cystic fibrosis (CF) transport defects in the gastrointestinal tract of subjects with CF, in vivo measurements of colonic and esophageal transepithelial electrical potential difference (PD) were performed before and during amiloride superfusion in CF and healthy subjects. Esophageal PD before (-16 +/- 2 vs. -16 +/- 3 mV) and after (-14 +/- 2 vs. ...

KOL-Index: 13 While acute splenic sequestration and splenic infarction are commonly observed in infants and young children with sickle cell anemia, they are rarely experienced by adult hemoglobin S homozygotes because the recurrent splenic infarction that takes place during childhood is typically followed by scarring, atrophy, and splenic fibrosis. Both acute splenic sequestration and splenic infarction ...

KOL-Index: 8 Hereditary spherocytosis is a clinically heterogeneous, genetically determined red blood cell membrane disorder resulting in hemolytic anemia. A deficiency of spectrin, the largest and most abundant structural protein of the erythrocyte membrane skeleton, results in the formation of spherocytes which lack the strength, durability, and flexibility to withstand the stresses of the circulation. ...

KOL-Index: 5 Gallstones are frequently found in patients with sickle cell anemia. The differentiation between acute calculous biliary tract disease and sickle cell crisis can be difficult and should be based on the clinical presentation, comparison with previous episodes of abdominal pain, and judicious use of hepatobiliary radionuclide scanning. Emergency cholecystectomy is associated with a high ...
