Successful Diagnosis of a Longstanding Giant Amoebic Liver Abscess Using Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasonography (CEUS): A Case Report in a Western Country.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Apr 10;20:493-498. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Radiological Sciences, Oncology and Anatomo-Pathological Science, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

BACKGROUND E. histolytica liver abscess results from extra-intestinal diffusion of amebiasis, which is responsible for up 100 000 deaths per annum, placing it second only to malaria in mortality. Currently, the criterion standard for the diagnosis of liver abscesses is ultrasound, but CEUS (contrast-enhanced ultrasound) is emerging as a more accurate method for liver study, and it could be more accurate than ultrasound and non-invasive compared to CT.

1Department of Surgical Oncology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, U.P. 221005 India.

Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is the most feared complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) that leads to intra-abdominal abscess, sepsis, or bleeding and remains the single most important source of morbidity and mortality after PD. To minimize this dreaded complication, various surgical techniques and modifications of pancreaticoenteric reconstruction have been proposed. However, still POPF does occur even in experienced hands.

Laparoscopic Major Gastrointestinal Surgery Is Safe for Properly Selected Patient with COPD: A Meta-Analysis.

Biomed Res Int 2019 28;2019:8280358. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of General Surgery, Xuanwu Hospital of Capital Medical University, Beijing 100053, China.

Background: Laparoscopy has been widely applied in gastrointestinal surgery, with benefits such as less intraoperative blood loss, faster recovery, and shorter length of hospital stay. However, it remains controversial if laparoscopic major gastrointestinal surgery could be conducted for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which was traditionally considered as an important risk factor for postoperative pulmonary complications. The present study was conducted to review and assess the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic major abdominal surgery for patient with COPD. Read More

Robotic radical lymphadenectomy without touching the pancreas during gastrectomy for gastric cancer.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(13):e15091

Second Department of Surgery, Wakayama Medical University, Wakayama, Japan.

Laparoscopic lymph node dissection around the peripancreatic area for gastric cancer (GC) remains challenging because of drawbacks in laparoscopic surgery including the limited range of movement, amplification of hand tremors, and inconvenient surgical positioning. In some cases of laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG), therefore, postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) occurs. Robotic surgery, on the other hand, plays an essential role in ergonomics and offers advantages, such as motion scaling, less fatigue, tremor filtering, 7 degrees of motion in the robotic instruments assisted by the wrist-like instruments tips, and three-dimensional vision.

Image-Guided Percutaneous Gastrostomy Tube Placement is Safe in Patients Requiring Aspirin 325 mg.

Acad Radiol 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Radiology, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina.

Rationale And Objectives: Requests for gastrostomy tube placement in patients on aspirin (ASA) 325 mg are common, particularly in patients following reconstructive surgery for head and neck cancer, but periprocedural guidelines and recommendations regarding management of high dose aspirin are inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to assess the bleeding risk of percutaneous gastrostomy tube placement in patients on ASA 325 mg.

Materials And Methods: This retrospective study of 213 patients who underwent image-guided "push" percutaneous gastrostomy tube placement compared rates of significant bleeding and other secondary outcomes (including all-cause mortality within 30 days, procedure-related mortality, bowel perforation, abdominal abscess, peritonitis, aspiration pneumonia, intraprocedural airway complications, and tube dislodgement) between patients maintained on ASA 325 mg and patients not on antiplatelet or anticoagulation therapy.

Background: Over the last three decades, laparoscopic appendicectomy (LA) has become the routine treatment for uncomplicated acute appendicitis. The role of laparoscopic surgery for complicated appendicitis (gangrenous and/or perforated) remains controversial due to concerns of an increased incidence of post-operative intra-abdominal abscesses (IAA) in LA compared to open appendicectomy (OA). The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of LA versus OA for complicated appendicitis. Read More

5 Professor, Department of Pediatric Rheumatology, Cukurova University Faculty of Medicine, Turkey.

Hyperimmunoglobulinaemia D syndrome is an autoinflammatory disease usually representing recurrent episodes of fever, arthralgia/arthritis, cervical lymphadenopathy, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and skin rashes lasting 3-7 days every 4-8 weeks since their infancy. Recent reports suggested a link between perianal fistulae/abscess and severe colitis with hyperimmunoglobulinaemia D syndrome resembling an inflammatory bowel disease phenotype. Herein, we report an 18-month-old patient with recurrent attacks of fever and pharyngitis lasting 2-3 days every 10-15 days since the first two weeks of life. Read More

Klinik für Gastroenterologie und Hepatologie, Universitätsklinikum Köln, Kerpener Str. 62, 50937, Köln, Deutschland.

Abdominal ultrasound is established as an important and low-risk diagnostic procedure in emergency and intensive care medicine that allows rapid and precise diagnosis in symptomatic patients and helps to evaluate which further diagnostic steps are needed. Abdominal ultrasound should be performed as the initial imaging modality in all symptomatic patients in an emergency or intensive care unit and can be used with great accuracy to detect the presence of various abdominal pathologies, such as abdominal aortic aneurysm, abscess, ureterolithiasis or free fluid.

Dig Dis Sci 2019 Mar 2. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

John H Stroger Hospital of Cook County, Chicago, IL, USA.

Background: Crohn's disease is an idiopathic inflammatory process that is occasionally associated with complications, which cause significant morbidity and mortality. The anti-inflammatory effect of cannabis in intestinal inflammation has been shown in several experimental models; it is unknown whether this correlates with fewer complications in Crohn's disease patients.

Aims: To compare the prevalence of Crohn's disease-related complications among cannabis users and non-users in patients admitted with a primary diagnosis of Crohn's disease or a primary diagnosis of Crohn's related complication and a secondary diagnosis of Crohn's disease between 2012 and 2014.
