Ho Cheuk Wah , Kam Grace , Tsang Man Wo

Background and aims: Obesity is a global problem. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) was introduced in our hospital since 2008. This study aimed at reviewing the metabolic changes after LSG among Hong Kong Chinese in a regional hospital.Materials and methods: 47 patients who received LSG in our hospital from June 2008 to October 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. Change in body weight (BW) and glycaemic control up to 5 years were evaluated. Rate of r...

Introduction: Pheochromocytomasand paragangliomas are tumors derived from chromaffin cells which result from mutations of at least six different genes as autosomal dominant disorders.Aim: To evaluate the existence of correlations between genetic alterations and clinical data in 16 patients with pheochromocytomas and/or paragangliomas.Methods: From 2007 to 2009, 13 patients with pheochromocytoma [3 men, medium age 39 years (14&#8211...

In contrast to another AITD - Graves’ disease, results of genetic analyses have been ambiguous and have failed to find a major genetic locus that would be...
