Title: Gastrointestinal Involvement In The Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS)
[ Full Text Here ] Our thanks to Tom Walter (TominCal@aol.com) for providing this article.
Author(s): Assembled by Tom Walter from talks Dr. Sinn Anuras gave in the early '90's, plus feedback he gave to some local participants.
Abstract/Extract: Gastrointestinal involvement is common in the post-polio syndrome, and it appears to affect the entire gastrointestinal tract. Unfortunately, there are only a few studies in this fascinating area. More extensive studies are needed to understand the pathologic and pathophysiologic processes in this problem, so that patients can be treated properly. We report our survey of gastrointestinal symptoms that could affect up to 50 per cent of the post-polio syndrome patients in this review. We also propose the underlying pathophysiologic changes, outline the diagnosis and treatment for difficulties of various parts of the gastrointestinal tract.

Original Publication: Lincolnshire Post-Polio Library 2000.
Abstract/Extract: A qualitative study was carried out between the months of September and November 1998. Interviews were done on 14 patients suffering from the post-polio syndrome. They were between the ages of 40 and 72 years and eight males and six females. All of them had polio in childhood, before the age of 10 years with various impairments. The aim of this study was to explore possible influences on the perceived quality of life for people with PPS. This is a pilot case series in descriptive epidemilogy.

NOTES

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.

People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.

"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
