CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 16 - January 22, 1998 - 37 Parasher presents research at annual gastroenterologists' meeting Beebe Medical Center gastroen- terologist Vinod Parasher, M.D., was invited to present a research paper at the 62nd annual Scientif- ic Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterol- ogists held in Chicago last November. The event is the second largest meeting PARASHER of gastroen- terologists in the country. The abstract, "Can a small inci- sion limited to the papillary ori- fice minimize bleeding from Nee- dle Knife Papillotomy?" is co- authored by Parasher, Annette Wright, gastroenterology technol- ogist, and Anne Marie Delle- Donne, certified gastroenterology registered nurse. It was published in the Septem- ber 1997 issue of"American Jour- nal of Gastroenterology." Needle Knife Papillotomy (NKP) is a technique that is used to cut the opening of the common bile duct to gain access into the bile duct endoscopically to remove stones or to relieve an obstruction when usual measures fail. Obstruction of a bile duct can be Renown seminar Gertie's Greengrocer, Ltd., in conjunction with Beebe Medical Center's Department of Integra- tive Health and Well Being, is hosting a lecture about herbal therapeutics, on Thursday, Jan. 22, in the second-floor meeting room at the Lewes Public Library.

Usual measures include Endo- scopic Retrograde Cholangro- Pancreatography (ERCP), an endoscopic procedure employed to gain access into the bile duct by inserting a small catheter through an endoscope into the papilla into the intestine, where the bile duct and pancreatic duct open. However, in 10 percent of cases, entry into the bile duct is not pos- sible by ERCE This is where NKP is used. By not using NKP, these 10 percent must be treated surgi- cally or radiologically, which is more invasive and more compli- cated. During NKR a needle-like knife is used to cut the papilla to gain access into the bile duct. A highly specialized technique, NKP is per- formed by only a small number of gastroenterologists in the country. Using NKP can cause bleeding in 5 percent to 12 percent of cases. However, the study showed that by making a small incision in the papilla, less than 5 millimeters rather than a larger incision, the incidence of bleeding was decreased to zero percent. None of the patients involved in this study required surgery or radi- ological intervention to gain access into the bile duct for removal of stones. herbalist to present on herbal therapeutics Gagnon, who studied medical herbalism and pharmacology at the College of Santa Fe and the University of New Mexico's Col- lege of Pharmacy, has been a practicing medical herbalist since 1976.
